Flooding was reported Monday, including on the northbound Bayshore freeway at Alemany under the freeway toward the southbound entrance. Additionally, flooding was reported on Interstate 80 near the Cummings Skyway in West Contra Costa County and near Fairfield.
The weather service said Wednesday will bring much higher chances of "uncertainty," regarding rain amounts. But starting Thursday, the Bay Area will see a drying trend that will last into the weekend. Isolated thunderstorms and localized urban and small stream flooding are possible on Tuesday.
Forecasters said there is a "high probability" most of the region will receive one to three inches of rain through this week. With rain spread out over multiple days, nuisance roadway flooding remains the most likely impact of this week's stormy weather.
