Rain Expected to Fall Intermittently in Bay Area Through Saturday

Light amounts of rain are expected to fall intermittently throughout the Bay Area from today through Saturday, a National Weather Service forecaster said.

The rain came in around 4 a.m. today in the North Bay and slowly worked its way down south, forecaster Steve Anderson said.

Today’s system will continue through this afternoon, followed by another one Thursday morning and a final one starting midday Friday into Saturday afternoon, Anderson said.

The rainfall trickled its way from the Gulf of Alaska, according to Anderson.

The North Bay is expected to have 1 to 2 inches of rainfall while the rest of the Bay Area will receive about a quarter to three-quarters of an inch from today until Saturday, he said. Overnight lows will be in the 40s and 50s, which are typical temperatures for this time of year, Anderson said.

The highs in the Bay Area ranged in the low to mid-60s today with 64 degrees in San Francisco, 66 degrees in Oakland and San Jose and 60 degrees in Santa Rosa, according to Anderson.

The current system will result in breezy conditions at times, he said.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution on the slick roadways and to allow extra time for their commute, Anderson said.

As of today, dry weather is forecast for Thanksgiving Day, he said.
