Part of the Bay Area is expected to see the most rain on Monday

A storm system over the Pacific Northwest on Sunday will gradually dry up as it moves towards California on Monday. While the northern reaches of California will likely receive precipitation, in the San Francisco Bay Area, only northwestern Sonoma County could see drizzle.

There is a 30-40% chance of rain in northwest Sonoma, compared to 10-20% in the rest of the Bay Area, the National Weather Service reported.

“The best chance will be northwest Sonoma County, but it doesn’t look like much, maybe a few hundredths along the coast and in the Coast Mountains,” said Anna Schneider, meteorologist with the Weather Service. “If it rained in San Francisco, it would be a hundredth mark.”

In the midst of a drought marked by two consecutive dry winters, any rain is beneficial.

The region experienced scattered light rains a week ago and which, combined with this coming system, signal the start of the rainy season. Weather services forecaster Roger Gass explained that these early-season storms often lose energy and dissipate as they move from the Pacific Northwest to northern California.

“This system looks like this,” he said. “Most of the rain will remain north of us and in the Pacific Northwest.”

To the north, Fort Bragg is expected to receive 0.1 to 0.25 inch, Eureka 0.25 to 0.5 inch, Mount Shasta 0.1 to 0.2 inch, and even further north near the Oregon border. , Crescent City could receive 0.5 to 1 inch.

Temperatures in the Bay Area will drop with the system entering. By Tuesday, even inland locations will peak in the upper 70s and lower to mid 60s along the coast.
