Photos: Winter storm hits northern California, heads south
A powerful storm that has already hit northern California could bring up to 3 inches of rain over coastal areas of southern California and up to 5 inches in the foothills and mountains, forecasters say.
The weather system hit northern California on Sunday with up to 10 feet of snow at higher elevations before moving south.
“We expect heavier rain after midnight Monday for Los Angeles and through Tuesday morning,” said Mike Wofford, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service at Oxnard.
One to 3 feet of snow is expected in the mountains above 7,000 feet, with a few inches possible as low as 4,500 feet.
