As a storm taps into the atmospheric river, the risk of flooding and heavy mountain snow will return to California Tuesday (March 5) into Wednesday, according to Accuweather.

The turn to drier weather across California on Monday is not expected to last long due to a new storm quickly approaching from the Pacific Ocean.

Rain is expected to spread over the state on Tuesday with the steadiest and heaviest rain targeting central areas. Additional rain can follow through Wednesday.

While most of California (outside of the mountains) can receive some rain from this storm, the heaviest rain will target only some areas as opposed to being fairly uniform across the state. That will result in inconsistent statewide rain totals.

"The rainfall around Point Conception can become heavy, especially in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and up through Kern County on Tuesday night and Wednesday," according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Maggie Samuhel.

This heavy rain may also stream into the western foothills of the southern Sierra.
