1 min read

A December storm is forecast to generate possible thunderstorms in the North Bay. 

Weather forecast said that thunderstorms are expected just after midnight. 

The NWS Bay Area wrote, “A more intense rain band comes through Tuesday morning with conditions similar to those seen on Monday morning.”

Forecasters said there’s a high probability that most of the Bay Area will receive 1-3 inches of rain before this week’s storms are over.

Forecasters issued a hydrologic outlook for storm impacts through Thursday. “Moderate rainfall will bring the potential for moderate and rapid rises along rivers, streams, and creeks. Most sites are forecast to remain below flood stage.”

Flooding may occur, especially in low-lying areas from as far north as Sonoma County and as far south as Monterey County. 

“Creeks that are most likely to see moderate rises are located within Sonoma County,” NWS Bay Area wrote.

Calmer, dry weather is expected to return on Thursday.
