Stay Alert North Bay Friends: Heavy Rain This Week Means Flash Floods On Your Side Of The Bay
I wish we were joking.
I know we normally don't report news (nor do we cover weather) but with the predicaments of what's happening in North Bay, with rebuilding and all—it's good to stay in the know; here's what we've researched thus far.
The National Weather Service warned residents in North Bay areas ravaged by the wildfires in October to be alert for flash flooding. “We will see precipitation move through the Bay Area through the overnight hours,” Roger Gass, a meteorologist with the weather service in Monterey, s aid Wednesday. “We can’t rule out a few lingering showers into” Thursday.
Up to 2 inches of rain was expected to fall in the burned areas of Napa and Solano counties. A flash-flood watch for the burn-scar areas was in effect until at least Thursday morning, as the weather service warned of possible debris flows.
So in other words, keep your eyes peeled but good news looms the horizons as the storm system will move out of the Bay Area by Friday. After that, there will be clear skies and cooler temperatures into the weekend, Gass said.
