Bay Area residents should expect rain on Friday and Saturday

Break in wet weather expected Thursday, but more rain on the way to Bay Area

The rain-soaked Bay Area will get a slight reprieve from stormy weather for the next couple of days, a National Weather Service forecaster said Wednesday.

Isolated thunderstorms and hail hit parts of the region throughout the day Wednesday, but today is expected to be dry, forecaster Steve Anderson said.

The next significant rainfall is expected Friday night and Saturday, but Anderson said that rain likely won’t be as heavy as what the Bay Area has seen over the past few days.

Sunny skies are forecast for early today, followed by partly cloudy skies later. Highs are expected to be in the lower 50s, with north winds up to 10 mph.
