Flooding possible with rain storm
An atmospheric river meets a mild cold front late tonight bringing rain to Southern California, including big Bear.
A couple of inches of rain are expected with this storm, which brings the potential for flooding due to the run off and snowmelt from Thanksgiving snow.
Snow level is high, above 7,000 feet, so it's possible for some light snow at higher elevations. Officials are reminding motorists traveling in the mountains to carry chains as weather and road conditions can and do change without warning.
