This storm is not just a wet one, it's downright cold.

The Bay Area is saturated and getting soaked again.

Many people woke up to heavy downpours as a system moves through, fueled by heavy wind and cold air.

The heaviest rainfall was expected to be pretty much done by 8 a.m., NBC Bay Area meteorologist Rob Mayeda said. By noon, the sun should peek out for some breaks as showers continue to move through.

Rainfall is so heavy, it propmted a flood advisory for several counties through the morning. The California Highway Patrol is reporting several calls of  flooding on area roadways, including U.S. Highway 101 in San Francisco at  Cesar Chavez Street, westbound Interstate Highway 80 at Gilman Street, and roadways throughout Marin and Solano counties.

You'll need a scarf and heavy coat along with an umbrella for this storm. It's not just a wet one -- it's a cold one. Cold air dropping in will support snow levels in the 3,000-4,000 range. That's enough to leave a light dusting on Bay Area peaks.

Thursday looks mainly dry with a few early morning showers. But another fairly cold system drops in for a decent shot of rain Friday into Saturday.
