A cold storm system dropping down from the north will bring showers and possible thunderstorms to our area starting on Friday and ending on Sunday.
After four days of rainfall, the San Francisco Bay Area has seen SOME relief to some areas, while other regions remain in “EXTREME to EXCEPTIONAL Drought. Over a foot of rain accumulated in Venado (12 miles west of Healdsburg) and as a result, the coastal mountains are now considered in a “Severe Drought”, not as dismal as the remaining Bay Area. In fact, many interior valleys received less than 1 inch of precipitation in the rain gauge and the Salinas Valley tallied less than 1/2 inch from the Friday through Monday rain event. Not nearly enough to note markedly improved conditions there.
The Bay Area received some impressive rain over the last few days. One of the wettest spots is a place many people probably haven’t heard of.
Crews are working to clear trees and power lines that were knocked down in this weekend’s Bay Area storm.
More than 2,000 PG&E customers in the Bay Area are still without power Monday morning following the weekend rain and windstorm, utility officials said.
A brief break in the rain provided Bay Area residents with spectacular rainbows Sunday.
Northern California was lashed by a second wet and windy storm with the potential to take down trees and power lines on Sunday, days after a similar system moved through the region.
Northern California got a break Saturday from a wet and windy storm that downed trees and power lines, ripped through freeway and street signs and led to dozens of flight cancellations at San Francisco’s airport.
The wind that whipped through the East Bay hills Friday evening did not just knock over a tree in Berkeley, it ripped it completely from its roots.
Nearly 55,000 Bay Area customers have lost power during Friday’s storm. As of 4 p.m., around 14,800 remained without power in the area.
