OAKLAND (KPIX 5) — A new storm system is headed into the Bay Area Monday, and it is likely to affect the Oakland A’s home opener at O.co Coliseum.

A strong cold front with heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms is bearing down on the Bay Area. There is also the possibility of hail in some parts.

Rain began falling in the North Bay Monday morning, spreading across the Bay Area throughout the day.

The heaviest rain will develop from 1 to 3 p.m., according to KPIX 5 weather anchor Roberta Gonzales. It will be also be cool and breezy with highs from 54 along the coast to 62 inland. “Be ready for a very wet and windy afternoon!”, said Gonzales.

“It looks like there will be scattered showers for the A’s game,” said Gonzales. “Possible [rain] delays, but hopefully they will get the game in.”

The A’s kick off the regular season Monday night against the Cleveland Indians with game time scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

Showers are also likely Tuesday morning, again with a slight chance of  thunderstorms and winds reaching up to 20 mph in some spots.
