As cleanup continues from this past weekend’s storms, a new round of rain, mountain snow and gusty winds will take aim at the West Coast of the United States into Wednesday. Northern California will again bear the brunt of the rainfall with this storm into Wednesday. Lighter rain will dampen areas farther north, including Portland, Oregon; and Seattle. Similar to what occurred late Sunday in the Bay Area, motorists will again need to be on alert for high water on the roadways. Motorists are reminded to never attempt to drive through floodwaters or around barriers. It is impossible to tell how deep the water is and if the roadway underneath has been compromised. The risk of flash flooding and mudslides may be greatest with this storm, as the ground is already saturated and the hillsides in recent burn areas are likely to be unstable, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
