*FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT (4/5) THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING (4/7)*


 The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Flood Watch for areas including the North Bay Interior Valleys, Mountains and Coasts…

  • From late tonight (4/5) through Saturday morning (4/7).
  • Periods of rain, heavy at times, are forecast to fall over the North Bay region. Rainfall totals are forecast to range from 2.50 to 3.50 inches in the North Bay Valleys and from 4.00 to 6.00 inches in the North Bay Mountains with locally higher amounts in excess of 8.00 inches possible.
Impacts
  • Roadway and small stream flooding is possible as well as urban flooding in poorly drained areas. 
  • Mud and rock slides are also possible. 
  • Moderate rises will likely occur on mainstem rivers. 
  • During periods of heavy rain ponding of water on roadways is likely. 
  • Extreme rainfall rates over recent burn scars could potentially trigger flash flooding or mudslide/debris flows across and downstream from the burn scars.
Precautionary/ Preparedness Actions
  • A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
  • You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
Visit www.sonomacountyrecovers.org/rain-ready for local information on how residents in or around the burn scars can continue to prepare.
