Northern California storms could get wet ‘n wild
SAN FRANCISCO - A series of storms will douse the region for the next seven days, officials said.
The first storm is expected to approach the area Friday afternoon with moderate rain and will linger through Saturday morning, said Roger Gass, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
After showers taper off Saturday afternoon, another storm system will arrive that night and last through Sunday. From there, the light showers will last through next week, Gass said.
“Right now, it doesn’t look like we have any one system that is significantly strong or producing a significant amount of heavy rain,” he said. “But it does look like we will see periods of several systems moving in and bringing light to moderate rainfall to portions of the region.”
Since the water year began on Oct. 1, San Francisco has received 7.46 inches of rain, bringing the city to 73 percent of normal rainfall at this time of year (10.15 inches).
Up to an inch of snow is expected in the Lake Tahoe area, but not much more than that until the middle of next week, Dawn Johnson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service to the San Francisco Chronicle.
