Periods of Rain Tonight | Chief Meteorologist Dan Romano
Another strong storm system will continue to bring steady rain to the North Coast that’s expected into early Friday morning. And while conditions will become quieter throughout the day, an even stronger storm system will bring heavy rain and gustier winds to the region this weekend.
A band of steady moderate to heavy rain will continue to impact the region well after Midnight. Upwards of 1.5 to 3 inches of rain are likely through Friday morning. Flash flooding, washouts and slides will be possible as a result, especially in areas impacted by recent wildfires.
By sunrise, lingering showers will become more widespread and a few pockets of sunshine aren’t out of the question. Don’t expect widespread clearing as temps climb into the upper 50s at the coast and mid 60s to the east.
As a deep area of low pressure drops down from the Gulf of Alaska, a pair of frontal boundaries will swing through the area this weekend. The first will create a burst of rain early Saturday, with quieter conditions for the rest of the day. Then, the second and stronger of the two will bring the heaviest rain to the region starting Sunday morning. More than 2 inches of rain will fall this weekend alone. Winds out of the south and southeast will also impact the area.
Lighter rain and scattered showers will continue into Monday and Tuesday, but showers won’t be as intense and winds won’t be as strong.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the rest of your workweek!
