Flash Flood Watch Issued for NorCal, Sacramento River on High Alert

With another atmospheric river storm heading for Northern California this week, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for areas all around NorCal, mostly along the coast and in the valley along the Sacramento River. A similar storm a little over a week ago flooded highways and caused dangerous mudslides throughout the North State.

With the rains moving in on Sunday and Monday, the flood watch is issued for late-Monday night through early-Thursday morning.

Certain rivers throughout NorCal are on high alert as they are forecast to rise above flood levels this week. Those rivers include the Russian River, Eel River, Consumnes River and Navarro River.

The Sacramento River is expected to see the most flooding this week, with forecasts showing the floods will occur at the Tehama Bridge, Vina Woodson Bridge and Ord Ferry. The last storm caused evacuations along the river Red Bluff and River Road outside of Chico.


Travel will be disrupted throughout the week, including in high elevation areas where snow will be falling. You can see the flooding updates with the NOAA here.

Telling the Stories of Northern California


  1. It is important to explain “flood stage” as it alarms people. In reality, “flood stage” does NOT mean that flooding is anywhere near imminent. I do realize that the situation may escalate for the Consumnes River. Wikipedia has an excellent page fully describing what it means. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flood_stage
