Time to find your raincoat buried in the back of the closet!
Much needed rain is coming to the Bay Area with a series of storms expected to soak the region over the next week. The rain is expected to deliver up to 4 to 5 inches in the North Bay, up to 2 inches in San Francisco and the East Bay and up to an inch in the South Bay.
“It doesn’t look like there is going to be the kind of substantial rain that is needed to put a dent in the drought…but there will be some benefit from the rain coming.” ABC7’s Spencer Christian told Pat Thurston.
“This is extremely beneficial rainfall,” said Matt Mehle, a forecaster with the weather service. “It’s going to do quite a bit of stuff. First and foremost for parts of California it will probably end fire season. It’s not a huge atmospheric river but it will still be notable for most of the area.
