The Bay Area can expect a healthy pouring of rain Tuesday and Wednesday with the heaviest rains falling in the coastal hills.
An incoming wet weather system is bringing much of the needed moisture to the region for the first time in two months.
KTVU’s Bill Martin says on a scale of 1-10, the most recent rain is a six.
“It’s not quite what we need, we need a 10,” Martin said.
Because the area is so dry, most of the rainfall will be absorbed as soon as it hits the ground.
Martin says there is a very slight possibility of thunderstorms in the North Bay.
Motorists are advised to use caution and slow down on the roads, which Martin described as a slip and slide.
Sunshine is expected to return Thursday as the current system moves south towards Los Angeles.
