    After a few days of rain, a dry, bright day is on the way. Tomorrow our next system will brush up against the California Coastline, bringing a few showers to the Bay Area late tomorrow evening. These showers will linger into Saturday morning. (Published Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012)

    The Bay Area is bracing for more rain Friday afternoon and evening as the next storm system approaches the coast from the Gulf of Alaska.

    Unlike the previous storms that moved through in the past week, this system will ride along the California Coastline and eventually push into Southern California towards Saturday.

    Showers will begin Friday afternoon in the North Bay first, spreading into the Peninsula and other Coastal locations by the evening. This storm system will bring a few showers into the inland valleys, but rainfall amounts will be very light there. In fact, inland locations could see anywhere from a trace amount  to half an inch of rain by Saturday morning whereas Coastal locations will receive upwards of a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of f rain.

    By Saturday morning a few lingering showers will still be in the area, primarily the South Bay, but by the afternoon skies will clear leaving for a bright weekend.
