PIG IN BOOTS2.jpgParts of the Bay Area have already seen record-breaking amounts of rain this weekend, a National Weather Service official said.

As of 5:30 a.m., San Francisco International Airport had seen .39 inches of rain, a record high for June 4th.

“The record was .16 in 1947. We’ve already doubled it and it’s still raining,” meteorologist Ryan Walbrun said.

Walbrun was quick to add that the amount of rain isn’t extraordinary, but the fact that we’re seeing it in June.

The same amount of rain in the middle of winter “wouldn’t be newsworthy,” he said.

The National Weather Service is expecting the steady rain to continue throughout the Bay Area through noon today, becoming partly cloudy with showers throughout the rest of the weekend.

By Monday afternoon, the region should see an end to the rain, Walbrun said.

Within the Bay Area, the Santa Cruz Mountains are expected to be hardest hit with rain this weekend, he said.
