Daniel Swain for Los Angeles Times — More rain hits L.A., California this weekend, while the Sierra again braces for heavy snow

UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain discusses California’s upcoming weather for LA Times, sharing how the state is bracing for more rain and heavy snow. Swain notes that a large low-pressure system moving into Northern California is driving this cool, wet pattern, with the Sierra Nevada expecting significant snowfall.

“While the winter season may be drawing to a close, it looks like California and the broader West will see at least one more 7-10+ day period of winter-like conditions beginning this weekend,” Swain said. “A series of 3-5 weak to moderate storms will affect California in the next 10-14 days, bringing widespread precipitation (especially NorCal) and cooler temperatures.”
