    Rain returned to the Bay Area, specifically the North Bay, Monday morning, with moderate downpours expected in most areas and likely heavy rainfall in Sonoma County, according to forecasters.

    The cold front was expected to stall over the northern part of the region through Monday morning then move south across the Bay Area, the National Weather Service said.

    On Monday afternoon, the storm brought light and moderate rain to most of the Bay Area. It was expected to weaken as it moved out of the region and susbsided overnight Tuesday.

    Temperatures are expected to be normal for the season, reaching the 60s in most locations, with the warmest inland valley locations possibly getting into the 70s, the weather service said.

    The North Bay is expected to get 1-2 inches of rain in higher elevations while other areas around the bay will only get 0.2-0.4 of an inch, forecasters said.

    Scattered showers are possible Tuesday, but any rainfall likely will be light. A second stronger system is expected to arrive Tuesday night and last through Thursday, the weather service said.
