1 min read

Sunday afternoon’s calm weather is the literal calm before the storm as the National Weather Service says a “parade of storms” is still on its way to impact the Bay Area. 

The NWS released a timeline of the storm for the next several days. According to the infographic, Sunday afternoon will be the last of the quiet weather as moderate rain is predicted to hit the area with 30-60 mph winds on Sunday night. 

On Monday morning, heavy rain, between 2-4 inches in the lower areas and 5-10 inches in the hills and mountains are expected to hit the Bay Area. Winds during this period could range from 50-80 mph. 

Moderate rain will follow on Tuesday morning and flooding is expected across the Bay Area. 

According to NWS, the challenging weather will continue to hit Northern California through the third week of January. Residents are urged to prepare for more.
