Rain returns to SF Bay Area forecast Friday

2 mins read

The San Francisco Bay Area forecast on Friday morning has included rain once again with weather models exhibiting a low chance early the following week.

While it is too early to give more information, models provide matches that the system is probably to be weak when it hits the area.

According to National Weather Service meteorologist Roger Gass, the system shares the same in terms of strength to the front that moved last weekend over the region. It brought minimal rain which reached mainly the North Bay. One-tenth of an inch was received by some areas in the North Bay. The greater region, on the other hand, experienced a couple hundredths or absence of rain.

However, any rain can be considered beneficial while the region is suffering from a drought marked by a couple of dry winters that consecutively came.

“There‚Äôs a slight chance Monday into Tuesday in that 10% to 20% range,” Gass noted. “The greatest likelihood of that happening would be the North Bay.”

The warm weather experienced mostly in inland valleys will stay Friday as the Bay Area observed above normal temperatures in the recent days. The cooldown will start to be felt on Saturday with the coast and inland areas to experience afternoon highs in the 60s.

On Sunday, the Pacific Northwest will receive the system coming from the North. It is expected to reach Northern California Monday.

The north of the Bay Area poses the top chances for measurable rain in the state. The North Bay, on the other hand, could probably experience some light showers.

“The moisture with this system isn’t anything to be excited for, but enough to yield light rain where the dynamics can set up,” according to the weather service’s forecast, as reported by SFGATE.

The kick-off of the rainy season was marked with the rain last weekend, as well as this upcoming system.
