On Monday morning, the Bay Area is expected to see very heavy rain — between 2-4 inches in the lower areas and 5-10 inches in the hills and mountains. Gusts during this period could range from 50-80 mph, according to NWS. Moderate rain will also follow on Tuesday morning, and flooding is expected to continue across the Bay Area.
The NWS warns that challenging weather will continue to impact Northern California through the third week of January. Record-breaking rainfall causing widespread flooding and high-speed winds bringing down water-logged trees have brought challenges all across the Bay, and it looks like residents need to be prepared for more.
