SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Meteorologist Drew Tuma raised the storm’s level on Tuesday from Level 2 to Level 3 on the Storm Impact Scale. It will be a rainy morning and a windy day.

The heaviest rain will be from 5 to 9 am. A stable zone of moderate to heavy rain will be observed throughout.

The wind will pick up after 10 am and pick up in the afternoon. Half an inch to an inch of rain is expected.

WIND CONSULTATION has been expanded to include the peninsula and East and South Bay valleys.

Gusty winds for the Diablo Ridge and East Santa Clara Hills where winds can reach 50 mph.

The Santa Cruz Mountains have been put on a STRONG WIND WARNING and there will also be wind gusts in excess of 50 mph and likely tree fall. However, Tuma says it won’t be as severe as last week’s storm damage.

Because the earth is so saturated with water, Monday is the day to prepare for Tuesday’s nasty flooding and possible power outages or downed trees.

A winter storm warning is in effect until Wednesday morning in the Greater Lake Tahoe region. Snowfall 6-24 inches except 1-2 feet above 6000 feet. Wind gusts can reach 75 miles per hour.

Light showers are possible at the end of the week, and a cold snap is expected over the weekend.
