No relief from rain in the Southland
The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a 50% chance of rain in Los Angeles and the surrounding area for most of the weekend.
Things could be much worse, however. Northern California is suffering under a proper deluge, with high winds and heavy rain delaying flights in and out of San Francisco and briefly knocking out power on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on Friday.
The recent storms have dropped as much as 7 inches of rain in Sonoma County and 6 inches in Napa County.
What’s wet at sea level is turning to snow on 14,000-foot Mt. Shasta, which could be in for a U.S. record-breaking 200-inch snowfall this week, according to The Weather Channel. The mountain set the previous record with 189 inches over six days in 1959.ALSO: License revoked for caregiver who served poisonous mushrooms
