More rain predicted for San Francisco this week

Any San Franciscan singing the old nursery rhyme “rain, rain, go away” may be sorely disappointed this week.

The rain that sprinkled parts of The City this weekend is slated to stick around through Friday, though Monday is scheduled to be comparatively dry, according to the National Weather Service.

The rain may return as early as Monday night, when the chance of rain hits 60 percent. The chance of rain Tuesday, however, is 90 percent, according to the weather service.

And the water-works may flow heavier as the week goes on.

“Heavy rain is possible, especially late Wednesday night and Thursday,” the weather service wrote, which may be accompanied by strong and gusty southerly winds.

By Thursday night and Friday the chance of showers becomes “slight.”

As for San Francisco’s shiver-worthy cold snap, it seems the worst may be behind The City, as temperatures are expected to reach a low of 47 degrees Fahrenheit but highs of 55.

The temperature isn’t expected to reach sunny SoCal highs, but the multiple layers worn by many San Franciscans may not be necessary for some of this week.

The weekend is expected to see clear skies, according to the weather service, which wrote in an advisory that “drier weather will return for next weekend and potentially through much of next week.”
