"Mother nature is going to unleash the full fury of this storm during the evening commute," said Nicco.
Wednesday's "Strong" storm is a 3 on the Storm Impact Scale. "It'll be a 'Major' storm 4 in some isolated part of the North Bay," said Nicco.
On Sunday, January 8, 2017, we experienced a 4-Major on the Storm Impact Scale. The difference then was that rivers flooded. We are not expecting that from this storm.
We have a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms that could produce winds up to 70 mph -- that's what makes this storm the most intense in more than a decade.
Wednesday's storm is likely to bring downpours, flooding on roads, downed trees and power lines.
"We have at least six watches or warnings, including a Flash Flood Watch, High Wind Warning, Gale Warning, High Surf Warning, Winter Storm Warning, Coast and Bay Flood Advisory for King Tides tomorrow morning," said Nicco.
