Rain on horizon in Bay Area as temperatures drop

Rain could be a bigger part of San Franciscans’ lives this week.

Light precipitation is expected Tuesday night and a slightly heavier downfall Thursday night or Friday. The latter is a “fast-moving system” that could provide about an inch of rain, said Rick Canepa, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Meanwhile, many who made their way into The City from the North Bay or East Bay likely woke up to a bit of frost. The NWS issued a frost warning for many Bay Area locales that expired at 8 a.m. today.

While many of those valley locations were to experience subfreezing temperatures as low as 28 degrees this morning, Canepa said, The City was only to drop to 47 due to the close proximity of the Bay.
