Don’t say “I told you so” yet — light snow remained a possibility in San Francisco on Friday despite a warm and heavy morning rainfall, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures were expected to gradually drop throughout the day, ushering in a slight chance for light snowfall in downtown San Francisco by late Friday afternoon, NWS meteorologist Bob Benjamin said.
The heaviest rain of the day passed over San Francisco and the Peninsula during the dark hours of the morning, Benjamin said.
Accompanied relatively warm temperatures, the persistent rainfall was headed east and expected to be followed by a significant cold front, he said.
The cold front will almost certainly bring snow to Bay Area mountaintops, Benjamin said. There was a “slight chance” that snowflakes will fall at sea-level in San Francisco, but not until late afternoon or early evening, he said.
The cold and showery weather will continue into Saturday, “but there will be some sunny spots in there,” Benjamin said.
The Bay Area is expected to dry out Sunday and Monday, he said.
