More Rain Than Sun This Week - NBC Bay Area

More Rain Than Sun This Week



    Rainy Christmas Week Forecast

    Rain rain and more rain are in your future all the way through Christmas night. (Published Sunday, Dec. 19, 2010)

    They told us the rain was coming and it did.  The entire Bay Area is a soggy mess and it is going to stay that way, according to the NBC Bay Area weather department.

    The Christmas week forecast has rain on every single day and Saturday, Dec. 25 is right on schedule for a bonafide storm. 

    The storm systems out in the Pacific Ocean are stacked up in a direct line headed straight toward the Bay Area.   It is a big system, which means it moves slowly and that is bad news for folks looking for sunny skies anytime in the next seven days.

    Sunday overnight the entire region got a soaking.  It was enough rain for the San Jose police department to cancel a sobriety check point and instead put their officers on the street to help drivers in trouble because of the wet conditions.

    Sunday during the day, rain is suppposed to continue with the possibility of a thunderstorm or two thrown in the mix.

    Parts of the Bay Area could get 10 inches of rain between now and the New Year.  Up that figure to feet and you have the forecast for snow in the Sierra.

    NBC Bay Area meteorologist Rob Mayeda says we should get enough breaks in between the systems to keep major flooding worries at bay, but there will be localized street flooding for sure.

    Travel will also likely be impacted by the weather. SFO has seen massive delays over the past few days. Check out if you are flying out or picking up someone for the holiday.
