There Goes the Rain

For the first time in weeks, we have ourselves a rain free forecast.



    (Published Sunday, Jan. 2, 2011)

    It's finally coming to an end Bay Area. The deluge of rain, wind and snow that marked a wild conclusion of 2010 is just about done.

    The five day forecast for the first work week of January is rain drop free.

    Scattered showers Sunday will move out of the area by Monday with a drying trend taking its place. 

    NBC Bay Area meteorologist says the monsterous rainy trend could go out with a bang, as in thunder and lightning.  The best chance for the light show is along the coast, according to Mayeda because of colder air aloft and a decent upper level wind shear near the right side of the low. 

    He said hail and ice pellet showers aren't out of the question either with the heavier isolated showers, given that the freezing level is near 3,500/4,000 feet level.

    Once we all get back to work, the week will remain on the chilly side with highs only getting into the 50s. And because the ground is so wet, there is a good chance of fog making driving difficult in the morning and evening hours.
