Thursday Top of the Scroll: California remains under flood, blizzard watches from storm
A storm that pounded Northern California with rain, snow, wind and mud rolled southwards on Thursday, prompting flood warnings and threats of mudslides in areas burned bare by wildfires. An atmospheric river of moisture from the Pacific Ocean was expected to dump 1 1/2 to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of rain in Southern California from Thursday night into Saturday, with winds up to 50 mph (almost 81 kph), according to the National Weather Service. But threats also remained in portions of central and Northern California.
