Stormy weather expected to subside this afternoon

After a night of rain, Bay Area skies are expected to dry up this afternoon as the region’s most recent storm subsides, according to the National Weather Service.

“The heaviest rain is moving over San Francisco right now,” meteorologist Ryan Walburn said.

The rain is expected abruptly end around 2 p.m., but a few showers can be expected this evening, according to Walburn. Approximately three quarters of an inch of rain has fallen on sea level land since this storm started late Monday night, Walburn said.

In the North and East Bay hills, about 1 to 3 inches of rain have fallen, according to Walburn. In the South Bay hills, there has been between 1 and 2 inches of rain, Walburn said.

A second storm should be rolling down from Alaska on Wednesday night and stay until Thursday morning, Walburn said.

Dozens of traffic collisions and at least three Sig-alerts have been issued on Bay Area roads since the rain started.
