Heavy rain and mountain snow will pound the northwestern United States early this week, with the most significant impacts targeting Northern California.

Storms will resume their track across the region following a brief break from heavy precipitation to start the weekend.

Precipitation will become more widespread and heavy throughout Monday, with the heaviest rain expected to slam Northern California.

A widespread 2 to 6 inches of rain can fall across the San Francisco Bay region and part of the Sacramento Valley through Tuesday, with locally higher amounts possible across the foothills.

“While the storms will bring the risk of mudslides and avalanches, the greatest threat to lives and property will be from flooding,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

Evacuations may be ordered in some communities if the threat for flooding is imminent. This includes near Oroville Dam, where crews have been repairing a damaged emergency spillway that sparked fears of a major flooding disaster last weekend. (Click to Article)
