The North Bay looks to be catching the brunt of this next storm, with towns like Guerneville along the Russian River bracing for flooding.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch starting Monday afternoon for Marin, Napa, and Sonoma counties. The rain is set to begin mid-Monday and not let up until late Wednesday, with as much as 9 inches falling in some locations.

As the Chronicle reports, there's also a storm warning in effect for the Sierra, where 4 to 6 feet of snow is expected to fall at higher elevations between Monday and Wednesday.

San Francisco and the "immediate Bay Area" are expected to see 1 to 3 inches of rain, according to CBS SF.

A similar atmospheric river caused flooding and a landslide in Sausalito a week and a half ago. The storm also caused the Russian River to rise six feet above flood stage in Guerneville.

Once hit with the latest round of rain, the already soaked ground in the North Bay is likely to give way with more rockslides and landslides.
