The entire Bay Area is under a high wind and flood advisory as a powerful atmospheric river bringing stormy conditions is moving across the San Francisco Bay Area, with some locations already seeing flooding and pooling on roadways.
Rain will continue this morning, with the brunt of the storm hitting late this afternoon and into this evening, bringing with it the potential for heavy rain and wind, along with a chance of thunderstorms.
The storm has the potential to deliver about an inch of rain.
