Bay Area Storm: Rain and Gusty Winds Return

Winter-like conditions returned to the Bay Area on Sunday as another storm system packing moderate downpours and gusty winds made its way across the region.

The latest storm brought rain primarily to the North Bay during the morning hours, scattered showers for the rest of the Bay Area by the afternoon, and widespread downpours late in the day and around midnight. The wet and blustery conditions are slated to clear by Monday morning.

By the time the storm passes, Oakland is forecasted to have picked up 0.77 of an inch of rain. San Francisco is expected to net 0.44 of an inch, and San Jose will receive only about 0.21 of an inch.

The sub-tropical nature of the storm will wring out higher rainfall totals over coastal and inland hills with some spots receiving anywhere from one to 2 inches of rain, forecasters said.

To the east, windy conditions could make traveling through the Sierra Nevada a challenge. Winds are forecasted to reach anywhere from 30 to 40 mph, with gusts in excess of 50 mph, forecasters said.

Snowplows and chain teams were also kept busy early Monday as snow fell across Interstate 80.
