SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The National Weather Service on Tuesday has issued an urban and small stream flood advisory for the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Sonoma.

Moderate to heavy rain has moved into the Bay Area. Some of the heaviest rain right now is over the East Bay and the coast near Half Moon Bay.

Additional runoff from the expected precipitation will exacerbate drainage problems in these areas. Excessive caution is advised on roadways especially during this evenings commute.

Officials are advising motorists to avoid ponded areas and low lying spots. Water may be deeper than expected and it is never safe to attempt to cross flooded areas in your vehicle or on foot.
