Rain expected at beginning of holiday weekend

Rain is in the forecast, meaning that many in the Bay Area will be having a wet holiday weekend.

Meteorologists report that wet weather will develop in the North Bay on Thursday night, before moving southward on Friday.

The rain is not expected to be heavy, but an increase in traffic for the holiday may exacerbate the storm’s effect. Traveling delays are predicted to occur on Friday evening after roads are made slick by the rain.

A total of one quarter to one half inch of rain is expected in San Francisco, with the highest rainfall—up to an inch-and-a-half—taking place in Santa Cruz.

Winds from the storm will be coming in from the north and northwest, and are predicted to be 15 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph. High winds are expected to peak on Saturday morning.holidayrainweather
