Powerful Bay Area Storm Prompts Flood Advisory

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — The National Weather Service has issued an urban and small stream flood advisory for the Bay Area Saturday afternoon.

The advisory, which is less severe than a flood watch or warning, means residents should be aware that flooding is likely in some spots.

Forecaster Steve Anderson said motorists should watch for flooded roadways. The advisory expires at 3:45 p.m.

There is also a wind advisory in effect for the region until 4 p.m. Saturday.

Anderson said winds of 20 to 30 mph are expected, with gusts as strong as 45 mph possible in some areas, mainly along the coast.

The wind and rain are expected to last until about 10 p.m. when the weather system leaves the area, he said.
