A series of weak storms heading for the Bay Area from the Gulf of Alaska is anticipated to land by midweek, bringing an inch or two of rain starting early Wednesday morning, in accordance to weather conditions forecasters.

Rick Canepa, a meteorologist using the National Weather Service in Monterey, doesn’t anticipate the rainfall – which he stated will peak Wednesday night into Thursday morning – to deliver any information, just like the rain that fell while in the area over the weekend from Friday morning through early Saturday night.

He reported rainfall totals during that time period ranged from .16 inches in San Jose to .eighteen inches in Walnut Creek; .forty five inches in Oakland to .forty eight inches in Napa; .55 inches in Livermore to .56 inches in Soquel, and .seventy four inches in Woodside.

“Typically, these climate units coming from the Northwest don’t create loads of rainfall mainly because they are coming from a higher latitude exactly where there may be normally less water vapor readily available,” he mentioned.

Nevertheless, the good news is that “more rain variety of keeps putting that fire season to an finish,’’ stated Canepa.

And because the rain heads east to your Sierra this 7 days, he reported, it should deliver from 6 to 12 inches of snow – good news for ski resorts, lots of of which are getting ready to open this thirty day period.

Right until then, the temperatures while in the North Bay and East Bay on Monday will start during the low 30-to-mid-40-degrees, and head up through the working day towards the mid-to-low-60 degrees.

South Bay temperatures will start during the low 40 degrees and go to your high that day while in the mid-60s degrees, although Santa Cruz County will start inside the upper 30-degrees and increase into the low-to-mid-60 levels.

Tuesday’s climate should be similar, he said, though partly-to-mostly cloudy problems should heat temperatures up a little before the rain on Wednesday.
