Rain, gusty winds and chillier temps forecast for holiday week

A series of two storms will swing through the Bay Area over the holiday week, bearing rain, cooler temperatures and gusty winds, forecasters said.

The first system could bring showers as early as Saturday afternoon to the North Bay, according to the National Weather Service. The rest of the region will likely see rain Saturday night through Sunday morning.

High winds are expected as well, and the weather service issued a wind advisory for 7 p.m. Saturday to 7 a.m. Sunday for the East Bay hills, the Diablo Range, Santa Lucia and Benito County mountains, and interior

Monterey County.

From Sunday night through Tuesday, it will be chilly and only spotty rainfall is expected.

The second storm system moves in late Tuesday, bringing showers and the potential for brief heavy downpours and gusty winds through Wednesday, the weather service said.

On Sunday, California bore the brunt of what meteorologists referred to as a bomb cyclone and an atmospheric river, a convergence of storms that brought more than half a foot of rain to parts of the Bay Area, along with high winds, concerns about flash floods and the potential for heavy snow in the Sierra Nevada. Much of the Bay Area was under a flash flood watch on Sunday, with the National Weather Service warning of the potential for mudslides across the region. (NOAA via The New York Times)
