LOS ANGELES (AP) — Forecasters say California is in for a period of foul weather, with heavy snow in the north and along Sierra Nevada while southern areas could see some significant rainfall amounts.
The National Weather Service says a series of wet and windy Pacific storms will move in Friday and possibly continue into next week. Some parts of the Sierra could see snow accumulations of up to 10 feet.
In Southern California, work continues on improving flood-control basins designed to capture debris flows from wildfire-scarred mountains above Los Angeles’ foothill suburbs.
On Wednesday, public works officials conducted a test of a huge valve on a dam in San Gabriel Canyon to ensure it can control floods from the mountain watershed above eastern Los Angeles County.
