More rain is in store for the San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday, with thunderstorms also possible as the showers continue into Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Weather officials have issued a flood advisory from 8 p.m. Sunday to 10 p.m. Monday for Marin, Sonoma and Napa counties where excessive rainfall could result in minor-to-moderate flooding.

The heavier rain is expected for the coastal areas of Sonoma and Monterey counties, according to the NWS forecast. Weather experts anticipate that Sunday’s storm will be the wettest of the three systems that hit the region this weekend.

San Franciscans should expect fog to creep into the mix on Sunday night, along with winds possibly reaching over 10 mph.

Weather officials are warning residents to take caution when traveling on wet roads by allowing for extra travel time, keeping following distance between cars and being aware of hazards—like branches and small trees—due to strong wind gusts.

Public transit riders should also allow for extra travel time as BART is slowing down train speeds due to the wet weather, according to an advisory sent out by the transit agency.
