Rain expected to hit region today, Friday

Temperatures will remain cold today, but keep those umbrellas and galoshes handy.

Clouds are expected to roll in today, dropping light rain that could start late tonight or early Thursday, National Weather Service forecaster Duane Dykema said Tuesday. The high temperature today will be 50.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District issued its second alert of the winter Spare the Air season for today, which means burning wood, manufactured fire logs or any other solid fuel is prohibited.

A bigger storm is expected this weekend. Strong winds and heavy rain are expected to last from Friday night to midday Saturday, Dykema said.

“That storm has the potential of an inch of rain,” he said, adding that southerly winds of 20 to 30 mph
are likely.

The weekend storm will bring warmer weather because it’s coming in from the west, as opposed to the one that struck Monday, dumping snow on some Bay Area locations. That storm came from Canada, Dykema said.
