Wet Weekend Forecast

Isolated storms forecast for Saturday



    Soggy Start to Saturday

    The weekend is off to a muggy, breezy start with occasional showers through midday. Temps will be fairly mild with highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s with some sunny breaks possible before our next rain event arrives by late PM in the North Bay and pushes southward into the rest of the Bay Area by evening.This rain may stall somewhat over the South Bay before clearing and lifting eastward by Sunday morning. We should see some clearing and drying conditions to wrap up Sunday into Monday. The forecast heading into the work week looks mainly dry with a notable exception to the rule being the North Bay, mainly Sonoma County northward were some rain at times will still be possible with the jet stream directing in non-stop rain into the Pacific Northwest. Expect rain to drop south into the Bay Area again by Wednesday as the jet stream begins dropping southward again.Hope you enjoy your weekend and remember to drop by your local Safeway stores to help us #EndHungerNow with a $10 donation to benefit Bay Area food banks.

    After near record setting heat to start the week our first storm system arrive right on cue Friday. It brought in quite the extreme shift in weather conditions. 

    Now the focus goes to a second storm headed our way for your weekend.  The second system will be stronger and colder and windier.

    SATURDAY:  Expect some lingering rain for the morning hours, with a few breaks of sunshine by the afternoon hours. An intense line of storms is expected to move through by the evening hours into late Saturday night. This line of storms could produce upwards of 1" in some locations with the potential for some small hail and damaging winds. Daytime highs will be chilly today. Inland highs will top out in the lower 60s, Bayside & at the Coast near 60 with a few upper 50s. Winds could gust up to 40 mph, especially at the Coast & hills.

    SUNDAY:  A few morning showers will still be pushing through the area, before we see some afternoon sun. A few isolated storms are possible, but they will be few and far in between. Daytime highs will remain cool with Inland locations near 60, Bayside and at the Coast upper 50s. Winds will gust today up to 40 mph.

    HOLIDAY WEEK AHEAD:  A few dry days are ahead for Monday and Tuesday with seasonal highs: 60 - 65. By Wednesday, a few spotty showers are possible, most likely in the North Bay. This will keep the onshore flow in place for Thanksgiving, so a few areas of drizzle or fog is likely by Thursday morning. At this point no major storm system looks to impact the Bay Area for Turkey Day!
