    our 4th storm of the week is set to impact your Friday morning commute. Chief Meteorologist Jeff Ranieri tracks the full storm timeline. Plus, details on how 5.00" to 15.00" of December rain has helped improve our drought. (Published Thursday, Dec 18, 2014)

    FRIDAY: Rain will develop in the early overnight hours from 1AM to 4AM with moderatre to heavier pockets in the North Bay 5 to 7AM, across the Peninsula and East Bay 7 to 9AM & the South Bay 9AM to Noon.  Rain totals will range .25 to .50" with wind gusts 15 to 25 mph.  Potential impacts of this storm with our saturated ground: isolated flooding, power outages and downed trees. The storm clears by the Afternoon as drier conditions are expected to develop this weekend.

    CHRISTMAS OUTLOOK: After nearly 3 weeks of back to back storms a ridge of high pressure is expected to build from Saturday the 21st into the 26th.  This should keep most of our rain chances to the North with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the upper 50s to mid 60s.  The only issue we might face are periods of evening and morning fog.  This may produce airport delays.

    Safe travels for the Christmas Holiday, Meteorologist Jeff Ranieri
