New storm brings more rain and snow to California
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An atmospheric river aimed at California is bringing a new round of stormy weather to the state.
Rain is falling widely in Northern California early Wednesday and is expected to spread south, feeding on the deep plume of moisture that stretches across the Pacific to near Hawaii.
The National Weather Service says small creeks and streams have been rising rapidly through the morning, and there are reports of localized roadway flooding.
Much of the state is blanketed in wind warnings and advisories, and a winter storm warning is in effect across the Sierra Nevada.
In the Fresno County city of Sanger, police posted on social media photos of wind damage to the roof of school along with snapped trees.
Flights into San Francisco International may be delayed several hours.
