Severe weather alerts, including the region’s first blizzard warning in decades and a flash flood warning for Los Angeles County, were issued as the cold storm fueled by an atmospheric river over the Pacific unleashed a torrent of moisture. The blizzard warning, indicating snow or blowing snow, reduced visibility and sustained winds of 35 mph or greater, will be in effect for Los Angeles, Ventura and San Bernardino county mountains Friday morning through Saturday afternoon.

Several mountain roads, including the 5 Freeway in northern Los Angeles County, were closed due to snow, ice and poor visibility.

Other areas face flood watches, wind advisories and high surf advisories.
