Breezy conditions are also expected on Wednesday and Thursday, with temperatures in the mid-60s during the day, dropping to the low 50s at night.

If flooding occurs, Concord residents can pick up a maximum of 25 free sand bags from Corporation Yard at 1455 Gasoline Alley between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Learn how to use sandbags here or call (925) 671-3383 for more information. When finished with the sand bags, residents should call (925) 671-3050 for the city to come and pick them up.

The storms might also dampen some of the holiday activities planned around Concord, including , which is set to include a visit from Santa and carriage rides around the plaza.
