Feb. 24 (UPI) — Another winter storm will hit California and the West on Friday, bringing heavy snowfall, high winds, and enough rainfall to cause flooding.
The cold, slow-moving winter storm is expected to cause havoc through Saturday. A previous storm that started in the West will continue to impact the Midwest and Great Lakes region with snow and strong winds on Friday, forecasters said.
“Multiple rounds of heavy snowfall coupled with strong winds will lead to blizzard conditions over some of the higher terrain and mountain passes, including the central and southern Sierra Nevada, and the high terrain of Transverse Range in southern California,” the National Weather Service said.
California snow forced the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District to cancel classes on Thursday after about 3 inches fell.

In the meantime, Portland, Ore., is still digging out of the second most snowfall it has seen in history on Wednesday with 10.8 inches.
More than 711,000 remained without power in Michigan on Friday morning, changing little from the day before when the massive winter storm first hit the state. California had 83,514 outages, while Illinois reported 25,126 homes without power, according to PowerOutage.us.
