The West has been in the grip of a pre-winter storm for a couple of days.

The storm has dumped snow or rain and snarled travel in Washington, Nevada, much of Southern California and parts of northern Arizona.

Around 18 inches of snow is on the ground in Flagstaff, Arizona. Authorities there say major highways are open but are advising drivers to be careful of packed snow and ice.

In Las Vegas, flights have resumed in and out of McCarran International Airport, where more than 3 1/2 inches of snow fell, but schools and highways are closed after the record-setting snowfall.

Even Malibu, Calif., got a dusting of snow yesterday, as the usually balmy city saw a half-inch in the afternoon.

In Washington state, Seattle got a rare 4-inch accumulation, and in Spokane, the 17 inches that piled up by 4 a.m. this morning broke a 24-hour record total of 13 inches set in 1950.
