5 maps to help you get through this big storm

Through Thursday, this storm will bring rain, heavy mountain snow and gusty winds

CALIFORNIA, USA — A Winter Storm Warning went into effect at 10 p.m. Wednesday along California’s mountainous eastern spine as back-to-back storm systems take aim for Northern California.

The systems come after a dry spell that followed a wet start to November. The cold, wet storms will soak the valley and bring feet of mountain snow in the coming days.

Through Thursday, this storm will bring rain, heavy mountain snow and gusty winds. Snowfall amounts of 1 to 3 feet are expected in the mountains, locally up to 4 feet, according to the National Weather Service. 

Friday will be a quiet weather day before the next storm hits. The details of the second storm are murkier, but another 1-3 feet will likely fall in the mountains through Monday.

Travelers are likely to face road closures and chain controls.
