The rain that dropped on the Bay Area overnight is only a prelude to a week’s worth of showers, according to the National Weather Service.
The latest system, which derived from the Gulf of Alaska, caught a plume of moisture off the Pacific Ocean that brought wet weather to the region, with the most rain dropping in the North Bay, forecaster Diana Henderson said.
Between 10 p.m. Tuesday and 4 a.m. Wednesday, nearly an inch of rain was recorded at the Marin County Civic Center, while a significantly smaller amount fell upon San Francisco and the Peninsula, Henderson said.
“We’re looking at showers through [Wednesday] afternoon,” Henderson said, with more to come Thursday through Saturday.
The good news? It won’t be as cold as last week, which saw temperatures in the upper 30s. Expect temperatures to be in the upper 50s to low 60s in the coming days, Henderson said.
