Winter is about to return to the Bay Area with a very rainy work week ahead. There are rain drops on every day of the five day forecast.
NBC Bay Area's weather department says showers will begin to arrive Monday morning with the forecast models keeping the best chance for measurable rain and wind on Tuesday and into Wednesday. This is also supposed to be a very cold system which means we could see snow on the Bay Area peaks by the end of the week.
The rain will bring an end to quite a dry spell. The South Bay has had less than one inch of rain since Jan. 1 Rainfall for the season is 65 percent of normal in the South and East Bay.
Weather folks say there has only been six days with rain since New Year's Day. They say it has been a very rare and unusual pattern has kept us locked out of winter, but add that is all about to change.
The storm door will officially open on Valentine's Day.
