A cold front and a plume of Pacific moisture streamed into the Pacific Northwest and drought-stricken northern California today, bringing rain and high elevation snow.

According to NWS, the heaviest and most widespread rain is expected to fall across northern California, where flooding is possible for some areas.

A second low pressure system will approach the West Coast on Friday, bringing a continuation of rain and mountain snows. The track of this system will be farther south than the first. Thus, rain and mountain snow are forecast to fall over central and even southern California as well as the Great Basin and Intermountain region.

This system will move into the Four Corners region by Saturday morning. Also by this time, yet another cold front will approach the coast, bringing rain and snow as far south as northern California, NWS warned.
