LOS ANGELES (AP) — A series of winter storms is bearing down on California, where officials are preparing for possible flooding and posting mudflow warnings for burn areas in the San Gabriel Mountains and in Malibu.

The National Weather Service says a low pressure system off Oregon has created a band moisture that starts in Hawaii and points directly at Central California.

Meteorologist Jim Dudley says the Central Valley will get 1 to 3 inches of rain by Monday with up to 15 inches of rain in the Sierra, which could prompt flooding in streams and rivers.

Northern California is expecting 5 inches of rain over the weekend, and officials in San Francisco are distributing sandbags to residents as they brace for possible flooding.

Southern California could see 2 to 4 inches along the coasts and valleys with double that in the mountains.
