Rain Returns – NBC Bay Area


A spring storm system could deliver up to an inch of rain to the Bay Area by the end of the work week, weather officials say.

The National Weather Service said the entire region could receive between a half inch and an inch of rain between Wednesday and Friday morning.

The system is expected to first hit North Bay during the day Wednesday before spreading south late Wednesday and early Thursday.

Showers and isolated thunderstorms are forecast for Thursday and Thursday evening.

The showers are expected to fade Friday morning.

The weather service issued a statement on the dangers of beaches along the coast due to a “high risk of deadly sneaker waves and strong rip currents”. The alert will be in effect from 3:00 a.m. Thursday to 3:00 a.m. Saturday.

In the Sierra, heavy snowfall is expected between Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning, prompting the weather service to issue a winter storm warning. Elevations above 5,000 feet could pick up 1-2 feet of snow. The higher peaks could receive over 3 feet of fresh snow.
