Severe weather moving through Northern California on Monday caused the National Weather Service to issue a tornado warning for Stanislaus County. The storm system which could spawn a tornado was expected to affect those in Turlock, Denair and Keyes. People living in the warning area were advised to take shelter.
A Flood Advisory was also issued for certain areas of the Sacramento region. The flood advisory included Sacramento, Stanislaus, El Dorado, Calaveras, Amador and San Joaquin Counties. Thunderstorms that passed through the region Tuesday morning brought brief torrential rains that have flooded a number of area roadways. The forecast calls for the wind and rain to taper off this afternoon - with sunshine possible into the early evening. More rain is expected to return Monday night and last into Wednesday.
