Stormy weather will continue to soak the Sacramento, Calif., area throughout the weekend, possibly causing floods.

The heavy rain has continued today and will remain steady through tonight. There will be rain showers Saturday, but they will not be as heavy as Friday.

"Rain will move from the northwest into the southeast late Saturday night and into Sunday," said AccuWeather Expert Senior Meteorologist Ken Clark.

Heavy rainfall will affect the foothills of Santa Rosa and the central and northern Sierra Nevada's. These areas may see anywhere between 2-8 inches of rain according to Clark.

"Flooding has been an issue with these storms and it will become more of an issue throughout the weekend," Clark said.

There will be between 3-5 feet of snow at altitudes above 8,000 feet. At 7,000 feet, expect 10-20 inches of snow.
