Bay Area Gets Small Dose of Rain Sunday

NBC Universal, Inc.

Bay Area residents sleeping in on Sunday morning awakened to rain falling around the region, ranging from a light drizzle to steady showers.

Sunday's rainfall set records for June 5 for both downtown San Francisco and at the Oakland Museum, according to the National Weather Service.

San Francisco received 0.23 of an inch, which beat the previous record of 0.15, set in 1934. It also beat the June monthly average of rainfall between 1991 and 2020 (0.20)

The Oakland Museum received .28 of an inch, which was easily a record for June 5, as no measurable rainfall has been recorded on June 5, according to the NWS. It also beat the June average at the museum of .20.

A little rain in June isn't unusual for the Bay Area, and the current system is most likely "one of the last gasps of winter storms from across the Pacific," said weather service meteorologist Ryan Walburn.

The rain and mugginess should start to move out today into Tuesday as high pressure begins to build in and temperatures start to climb higher. Rob Mayeda has the microclimate Forecast.
