Latest storm to pummel California begins exit
Storm after storm has been pummeling California over the past several weeks. The latest in this series will begin moving east of the region Wednesday, but not before dumping more rain and snow on areas already hit hard by recent bouts of precipitation. The silver lining is that all of this inclement weather has drastically improved the drought in California.
