An atmospheric river event will move into California and then spread across the rest of the western states through this weekend. Heavy lower elevation rains could produce localized flash flooding, and 1-3 feet of snow above 5500 feet will likely impair mountain travel. In addition, strong winds in excess of 60 mph down trees and power lines, and create hazardous driving for high profile vehicles.
