LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20 (Xinhua) -- A powerful storm continues to slam the U.S. West Coast on Tuesday with heavy rain, snow and wind, as flood watch remains in effect across California.

"A Pacific storm with atmospheric river will continue periods of heavy rain, mountain snow, and strong winds across much of California through Tuesday," said the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS).

NWS warned of locally considerable flash, urban, and small stream flooding impacts along the Transverse Ranges in Southern California.

Several feet of heavy snow is likely above 6,000 feet in the Sierra and far northern California mountains, with additional heavy snow above 7,500 feet for southern California, according to NWS.

The NWS Weather Prediction Center has issued a Moderate Risk of Excessive Rainfall along coastal Southern California through Tuesday night.
