FAIRFIELD — Solano County had a brief respite from the rain Thursday, but a heavy downpour, strong winds and possible flooding are expected to arrive early Friday.

The National Weather Service issued a flood watch and wind advisory for Friday that’s in effect until 4 p.m. Sunday.

According to AccuWeather, winds could gust as high as 41 mph. About half to three-quarters of an inch of rainfall is predicted. The heavy winds and rain are expected to continue through the weekend up until early Monday.

Suisun City is offering free sandbags in the parking lot behind the Suisun City Hall at 701 Civic Center Blvd.

Fairfield also has sandbag stations at the city’s Corporation Yard at 420 Gregory St., open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m; at the corner of Pittman and Cordelia roads, inside the unlocked, fenced-in area; and at the southeast corner of Allan Witt Park off of Woolner Avenue. The latter two are self-serve locations.

The temporary break in the rain gave Solano County’s California Highway Patrol officers a break of their own. According to CHP officials, only four noninjury accidents were reported between 1:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., a stark reduction from the 17 single-and multiple-vehicle accidents reported between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Despite the gloomy, wet outlook, Fairfield and Suisun City are not canceling their holiday celebrations scheduled for this weekend.

The Fairfield event begins at 6 p.m. Friday with candlelight caroling at Madison and Texas streets and follows with a tree-lighting ceremony at 6:15 p.m.

Suisun City’s Christmas at the Waterfront will take place rain or shine from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday. The event includes 40 craft booths, wagon rides, entertainment and a boat parade with Santa Claus arriving by boat.

The Rio Vista holiday parade that was scheduled at 5 p.m. Saturday was canceled and the tree-lighting ceremony that was to follow has been rescheduled for 5:15 p.m. Dec. 6.

The Soroptimist International of Rio Vista will have its home tour at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, and the Rio Vista Museum will host an Olde Tyme Christmas Fair at 11 a.m. that day.

    Looks like the fist of God is going to slam California. There's an atmospheric river out there extending from the sub-tropics all the way up to the temperate zones and all of that water is being vectored right at northern California. This is going to get interesting as December is the rainiest month in the Sodom and Gomorrah State.
