Thunderstorms, lightning and hail are all possibly in store for San Francisco on Monday morning as a cold front passes through the Bay Area, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain began to fall steadily late Sunday afternoon and is expected to continue in spurts through Monday, when NWS Bay Area meteorologist Brian Mejia said there is a 10 to 20 percent chance of thunderstorms in the late morning.

“They will pack a punch,” Mejia said. “You can expect brief heavy rain. Small hail is also possible, and also an isolated lightning strike or two.”

Mejia said San Francisco is expected to experience a quarter to a half an inch of rain between Sunday and Monday, “depending on exactly how many showers impact The City itself.”

After Monday night, The City should be rain free until Wednesday evening, when Mejia said “a very quick moving storm” is expected to come through the region.
