Meanwhile, the western states are experiencing pockets of accumulating snow this afternoon with higher elevations locations in line for several inches.  In a somewhat unusual fashion, blizzard warnings have been issued all the way down into southern California for the time period from now into the early part of the weekend. The expected snowfall in the southern California mountains will largely depend on elevation with, for example, as much as 2-5 feet of snow in locations above 4000 feet. In fact, there can be isolated amounts of as much as 7 or 8 feet at some of the highest elevations in the southern part of the Golden State. The blizzard warnings include the Ventura County and Los Angeles County mountains where travel can become difficult to impossible. Closer to the coast and in lower elevation locations, flooding by excessive rain is possible from early Friday into the PM hours on Saturday. One last note, the Sierra Nevada Mountains of eastern California can receive another 5-8 feet of snow with this latest storm system adding onto the deepest snow pack there in many, many decades.
