As a result of a winter storm in the Western United States, there are dangerous travel conditions including heavy snow and icy roads. Delivery delays should be anticipated in affected areas. The storm system is moving eastward and may cause disruptions in additional areas later this week. Parts of California’s higher elevations were counting the snow in feet by Wednesday, and there was still more on the way. In multiple states, avalanches were triggered that were large enough to close roads.
