High Water Level at Bay Area Reservoir Ahead of Forecast Atmospheric River

Water was seen flowing down a spillway at the Peters Dam at Kent Lake in Marin County, California, ahead of a forecast atmospheric river on Monday, March 13.

The National Weather Service in the Bay Area urged residents to finish preparations for an atmospheric river, forecast to arrive late on Monday. Heavy rain, flooding, and high winds were expected in the area. Credit: @BiodiversityDad via Storyful
