Parts of California still resemble a scene out of winter, with a series of storms bringing several feet of snow to mountain areas, ahead of a "significant" severe weather threat across the nation's midsection.
The National Weather Service said that a series of Pacific storms are bringing heavy rain, mountain snow, and gusty winds across the West. A winter storm warning was issued Wednesday night that will run through Friday morning for the southern Sierra Nevada.
The first storm, headed in from the Gulf of Alaska, is expected to bring up to an inch of rain in some areas of the Sacramento Valley and as much as 2 feet of snow in some mountain spots at elevations of about 7,000 feet.
Snow could fall at lower elevations on Thursday with 6-12 inches expected at pass levels, the National Weather Service said.
"Daytime highs today will drop as well down to as much as 20 degrees below normal for the date,"

Damn Global Warming
Not unusual for the higher elevations..
Before the democrats chased me out of Colorado...
24 inches on June 21 in Aspen
Snow July 4 th in Leadville..
Globull Warming is piling up on the mountains..................
Snow July 4 th in Leadville.......yep, seen it..............
The global warming crowd will cover California weather when they have a drought, etc. as proof of global warming, but when this sort of thing happens they will ignore it or say, “that’s just local weather.
Right now the entire country’s “local weather” is colder than normal, though.
Silly newsreaders missed the memo, that is Fallout from Man Made Global Warming, not snow. The Earth is on F$$king Fire”
But it's great for California's drought-stricken water reservoirs.
Just think of all the Delta Smelt they can now save!
Time to raise taxes again!!
Some of those reservoirs are already full. Oroville is the one that concerns me the most.
Already past mid-May. Is there any chance in the world the weather people will explain this?
18 inches up on Sunwapta Pass in August of 1998, if I remember correctly.
It’s Gorebull warming!
I remember it was to be drought forever because of climate change.
That’s what the experts said.
Those same masses of Hot Air up North that are melting all the sea ice and killing all the polar bears, are also pushing all the frigid air to the south.
I watched the Dillon dam be built at old Dillon, Colorado.
Now it’s under 80 feet of water.
Sounds like al gore must have a global warming conference scheduled in California.
Winter storm? Uh, guys - it’s mid MAY, call it what you want, though it ain’t Winter.
It’s pouring here on the SF Peninsula. Then it stops and brilliant sunshine, white puffy clouds, and gorgeous blue skies. Then it’s pouring some more. Repeat...
We were at a wedding last night in the Santa Cruz Mountains. LOTS of rain up there last night.
Significant severe weather events have lately been give names.
Some suggestions ...
