Strong storm brings Bay Area flood warnings, high wind advisories

The atmospheric river flowed steady over the Bay Area early Thursday morning, dumping heavy rain and prompting floods that shut roads in the North Bay.

The storm, also dubbed a Pineapple Express, arrived earlier this week but really got going late Wednesday night. Intense southerly winds are blowing, and they could pick up as a cold front moves in later Thursday.

The bulk of rain has hit the North Bay, which received more than 2 inches of rain in some locations. An Urban and Small Stream Flood advisory was in effect for Marin, Napa and Sonoma Counties until 9 a.m. Thursday.
