Storm onslaught to bombard California with flooding rain, mountains of snow through Thursday

There will be no day through at least Thursday when a significant part of California is not being affected by a storm rolling in from the Pacific Ocean.

Each storm will bring an increasing risk of flooding and mudslides as snow further buries the mountains, making travel increasingly difficult.
