    It's the middle of May, but Mother Nature doesn't seem to care.

    Instead of sunny skies and warm spring temperatures, the Bay Area will see rain and gusty winds during the middle portion of the workweek, according to the National Weather Service.

    A winter-like storm is expected to deliver 1.5 to 2 inches of rain to the coastal hills and North Bay mountains between Tuesday night and Thursday, the weather service said. Most other spots across the Bay Area could receive anywhere from one-half to 1 inch of rainfall during that time frame.

    Showers are expected to arrive in the North Bay Tuesday evening, the weather service said. Wednesday appears to be the day when much of the Bay Area will see widespread wet weather. Scattered thunderstorms and small hail are possible on Thursday.
