Residents are keeping an eye on areas prone to flooding, including the Johnson Creek area and along SR-503 near the 8800 block in Vancouver.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory that will remain in effect until 6 p.m. Monday.

Areas along the coast were slammed with heavy snow throughout the day Sunday.
