Heavy rain and mountain snow expected for parts of the West

A series of Pacific storm systems will bring a prolonged period of heavy precipitation to parts of the West this week, according to the National Weather Service.

Very heavy snow – measured in feet – will fall from the Sierra to the Great Basin, while heavy rain is expected in coastal sections of California and the Pacific Northwest. Flooding will be a concern by later this week into the weekend as additional storms come ashore.
