LOS ANGELES (AP) — A winter storm that gave California a much-needed dose of rain and snow caused long delays and major headaches for drivers.

Interstate 5 and Highway 58 reopened Wednesday as the storm moved east toward Arizona. No injuries were reported on any of the closed freeways.

Snow days were declared in several school districts in San Bernardino and San Diego counties, including Hesperia, Big Bear and San Diego's Mountain Empire schools.

For the second time in two days, a scheduled baseball game in Bakersfield between California State University Bakersfield and Cal State Northridge was postponed due to weather.

The storm from the Gulf of Alaska brought the first significant rainfall to Northern California in several weeks.

Some Southern California mountain resorts reported 14 inches of fresh snow from the storm overnight.
