Gusting 30 knots here & driving rain so all our snow has melted, ground is totally saturated, and there's water everywhere...mild compared to the storm you're talking about

I religiously followed those NOAA Surface analysis and forecast charts during 21 yrs of offshore tuna fishing, some years way offshore in October, Don't ever remember seeing a 939 mB low. That is going to be brutal.

Hope the storm will bring precipitation in California. Forecast says otherwise.

How often during the current fire situation have I and many of my Ketchikan acquaintance/friends extend a prayer that some of our weather could be given to California.

Ketchikan Alaska Weather, what to expect during your visit

Friend or foe politically, that all goes away when the pain that is being experienced in your neck of the woods.

Great. Kitamaat Village Road (15 minute drive and access to MK Bay Marina) is washed out in three places so can't go check on the boat.

Hey, Al...looks like you're getting a wee bit of rain right now?

We could use some of that coldness as it is 95 degrees right now in Oceanside, CA.

We're in Maui right now and the entire island lost power last night due to lightning, torrential rain and a whole lot of wind. Not sure if this is part of the same system but it was a doozy.

You're at the other end of the system hitting BC's north coast. It snowed here to sea level last week...then the 'pineapple express' from Hawaii set up, the temperature jumped 13 degrees Celsius, and it's been raining steady for days.

Hug a palm tree for me

Managed to check on Badger today before they closed the road again due to washouts

Well, at least our rain is hopefully even warmer than yours.

Rain/storm ?
We had one night of wind and heavy rain. The Skagit River went from extensive gravel bars (as was all summer) exposed from low water to colse to as high as we have seen it. But that was just one or two days and it’s sunny, fairly warm and beautiful this week. 60f and sun w little wind not nasty to me.

The storm in the forecast above predicts it will migrate to the SW Bering Sea and that’s basically Russia so why the alarm? Have I missed something?

How do they control the wind farm near Maalaea when gale + winds occur?

Most of the big wind farms, Maalaea included, feather the blades in strong winds, or when they are not needed.
Our Sunbird place is near the Palm Springs area, where there are thousands of windmills. On windy days, you can see the kilowatts generating, but whole sections of the farms are still, being stopped either for maintenance to protect them from excessive wear, or not necessary for current power requirements.
