Bomb cyclone continues walloping California

For the second time in two weeks, a bomb cyclone is causing problems in California in the form of flooding rain, gusty winds and heavy snow. The powerful storm is bringing heavy rain, mainly along the coast of the Golden State, with the heavy snow in the mountainous regions. Weather will gradually improve as the storm moves inland by Thursday night.

Things to know

Dangerous snow squalls possible across Great Lakes, Northeast

A quick-moving system sweeping across the northern tier of the U.S. will create some hazardous driving conditions Wednesday and bring a drastic temperature change. Bursts of snow that can quickly reduce visibilities, called snow squalls, are likely along a cold front swinging through the Great Lakes and Northeast. Behind the front, temperatures could drop by as much as 30 degrees in just a few hours. Gusty winds will make that feel even colder.

Thursday’s risk of severe weather is low and will be limited to parts of the central and southern Plains. Friday, the threat increases in not only severity but also geography.
