Big storm moves into Calif.; snow closes I-5

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A storm that could be the largest of the season is bringing heavy rain and snow to sections of California.

The National Weather Service posted winter storm warnings Monday for the Sierra Nevada and issued flood advisories from the San Francisco Bay area south to the Los Angeles region.

The California Highway Patrol said snow closed a section of Interstate 5 in the mountains north of Los Angeles. The highway department required tire chains on Interstate 80 through the Sierra Nevada.

Meteorologist David Gomberg calls it the area's "most significant storm so far this season."

Rain washed out Monday's final round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament. The storm also renewed fears of mudslides on hillsides stripped by last year's wildfires.
