A storm drenching the Bay Area on Tuesday morning is moving through the region faster than predicted, but forecasters said Big Sur and southward will see heavy rains the rest of the day.
There were chances of light and moderate showers on Monday before another atmospheric river hit the region on Tuesday, according to a forecast from the National Weather Service. Most of the region will see light to moderate rain through 11 a.m., with scattered showers through the rest of the day.
A flood watch and high winds warning is in effect for the entire Bay Area through Wednesday morning.
The area at most extreme risk continues to be Monterey County as it endures river flooding.
The weather service predicts another crest for Pajaro River at Chittenden on Wednesday morning that will be around 26.8 feet. Salinas River at Bradley is also predicted for another crest on Wednesday afternoon of around 17.4 feet.
As for the rest of the week, Thursday will likely have drier conditions, though flooding will likely continue, and weaker rain showers will start on Friday and continue through the weekend, said the weather system.
