SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The Bay Area saw some heavy downpours and even reports of hail as several small but strong cells moved through the Bay Area Wednesday.
The rain was expected to taper off a bit during the afternoon hours, leaving scattered rainfall throughout the Bay Area for much of the day. Temperatures will remain on the cool side Wednesday. The storm door remains open for several more days with unsettled weather and rain expected well into next week. Friday looks like the driest day on the horizon through the weekend.
Stronger systems are expected to hit Saturday and Monday.
All the wet weather could bring a foot or two of snow to the Sierra through Thursday. Chains are likely a requirement for folks heading up for a long ski weekend.
