A coastal winter storm developed rapidly off of Southern California on 12 February 2001 and proceeded to disrupt travel corridors in the vicinity of the California Bight region over the next day. Reports from various locations indicated significant snow accumulations occurred in the mountains surrounding the LA Basin, while significant rain accumulations within the basin itself resulted in numerous instances of urban flooding and mudslides in the lower elevations of the Santa Ana Mountains (Storm Data, 2001).
