Scattered Showers, Drying Trend Ahead



    Brief Downpours Today

    As the area of low pressure slides to our south, a few fast racing showers & storms will continue to pop up through the day. In fact, there will be times of sun and clouds, followed by brief periods of heavy rain. These storms today could also include small hail. Overall, rainfall amounts looks like an additional .10 - . 50" is expected. (Published Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012)

    A cool, unsettled airmass spilled into the Bay Area  Wednesday offering scattered showers mixed with cool sunshine at times.  The showers should decrease in intensity by evening setting up the Bay Area for a drying trend into Thursday.

    Patchy morning frost may be possible Thursday morning as skies clear and if winds remain light.  Dry conditions should last until Friday afternoon before our next weather system spins down the coast bringing more clouds and an increasing chance for some rain, especially along the coastal areas.

    Showers are expected to continue into Saturday, then move southward by early Sunday as the low positions itself just to the west of Southern California.

    The long range forecast is trending a little drier with high pressure hanging around a little longer early  next week giving us what may be a drier start into the New Year.
