West Coast Braces for Heavy Rain, Snow

Photo Courtesy - ABC News/KABC-TV Los Angeles(LOS ANGELES) -- The west coast is getting hit with the first of what is predicted to be a series of strong storms over the next four to five days. California is forecast to get heavy rains and strong winds, with significant snow totals in parts.

Mudslides are of concern in the Los Angeles area where K-rail concrete barriers have been assembled in parts to defend homes from the flow of water. Areas east and west of the city are expecting a foot or more of rain.

Snow could reach up to 10 feet in parts of the Sierra, while it's expected to total nearly a half-foot around Tahoe, an area which could see 15 inches by the middle of next week.
