SF bracing for more rain, possible flooding this weekend

Trending Articles


San Francisco is bracing for another inch of rain and possible flooding thanks to a pair of storms expected Friday and Saturday coupled with the arrival of king tides along the coast.

Rain will hit the region as early as Thursday night, with much of the storm hitting Friday, according to the National Weather Service. A second storm with greater potential for heavy rain is expected Friday evening into Saturday.

King tides of 6.6 feet are also anticipated Friday and Saturday morning, potentially causing slight flooding along the Embarcadero, though likely not enough to trigger any road closures, said Steve Anderson, a forecaster with the weather service.

“There’s not going to be major flooding… We’re going to have swells increasing Friday and Saturday, high surf along the coast,” Anderson said.

Several spots in the greater Bay Area could see up to six inches of rain, but no more than an inch of rain is expected to fall in The City from both storms.
