More Rain Headed Our Way - February 1, 2021
A cold front is forecast to spread rain from north to south across the San Francisco Bay Area and Central Coast between midday Monday and late Tuesday. Rainfall rates are forecast to be mostly light to moderate. Rainfall amounts with this system will be considerably less than what fell during the recent atmospheric river event, especially across the south, and so rain is expected to be mostly beneficial. Rain totals at lower elevations, including all urban areas, through late Tuesday are forecast to range from 0.25-1.00”, except locally up to 1.50” in the North Bay Valleys. At higher elevations, rain totals are expected to range from 0.50-1.50” except locally up to 2 inches in the North Bay Mountains. Locally gusty winds will precede the frontal boundary on Monday and Monday night, mainly near the coast and in the hills where gusts up to 40 mph are possible. Showers will taper off on Tuesday night, with a few showers possible across the south into Wednesday.
