While Tuesday’s rainfall is expected to be light, another storm brewing behind it is gaining strength and will hit the Bay Area later Wednesday and last through Friday morning.
An updated forecast early Tuesday from the National Weather Service has the second storm bringing rain first to the North Bay on Wednesday evening, followed by moderate rainfall. Thursday could see thunderstorms and even hail after 11 a.m., and then lingering showers Friday morning.
Rain totals around most of the Bay Area will be between .5 and 1 inch. Skies should clear by Friday evening, and dry and mild conditions are expected for the weekend.
By Sunday, this week’s cooler temperatures will likely give rise to daytime highs in the low 70s.
