SAN FRANCISCO — A new storm system made its way Tuesday through already drenched Northern California, prompting renewed flood concerns in parts of the region.
Rain had been falling along the coast and inland areas, but the heaviest rain was expected early Wednesday. Coastal mountains could see as much as six inches of precipitation before the storm moves out on Wednesday, the National Weather Service said.
Other areas may only see an inch or so.
Forecasters were not expecting weather as severe as the series of storms that rocked the region over a five-day period that ended Sunday.
"The winds will be much lighter than over the weekend. The rainfall amounts will also be lower," meteorologist Holly Osbourne said.
