Latest Storm to Hit Bay Area on Monday, Tuesday to Bring Rain, Hail, Cold Temps

March 30, 2014 · 24 comments

More rain is on its way to the Bay Area as early as Monday, and weather forecasters said to expect cold temperatures, hail, and the possibility of snow on the region’s peaks.

The late-season storm is expected to arrive in the North Bay on Monday morning, spreading throughout the rest of the Bay Area in the afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Continued showers and a chance of hail and thunderstorms are forecast for the entire Bay Area until Wednesday morning, the weather service said.

Wind gusts associated with the storm front could be between 30 and 40 miles per hour.

Some areas of the North Bay and mountains along the coast could get up to two inches of rain, according to the weather service. San Francisco could get anywhere between a half-inch and an inch of rain.

Snow is expected to fall as low as 3,500 to 4,000 feet, the weather service said.

Motorists should be cautious of slippery conditions on Bay Area roadways and leave extra time to travel over the next couple of days.

Doom and gloom people will still be whining about the drought.

10 Michelle March 30, 2014 at 6:17 PM

Yes! We need more rain!

11 zippo March 30, 2014 at 6:47 PM

Rain is great, but what we really need is snow pack, so we have water after the rain stops.

“Climate change”.. the Obama administration and left wingers’ vehicle to control every aspect of your lives.

Other tag lines that have little if any credibility to catch attention of the short attention span, emotional, and weak-minded public:

“Think of the children…”
“Teachers, police, and fire fighters….”
“Affordable Care Act..”
“Fair share….”
“Income inequality…”

@#14. Totally agree with you. #13 is full of it.

@#14. Totally agree with you. #13 is full of it. Only he/she can turn a weather report into a political soapbox.

we keep hearing about rain, and more rain, but that the rain will not improve the drought. How can that be? At what point does the rain begin to help?
is the rain making the drought worse?

or is it that certain weather/water personnel have an agenda to push and are actually dissappointed at the improved water situation?

Of course the rain helps the drought. It’s just not enough to cure it, i.e. bring the annual rainfall close to normal levels.

Here’s a website that shows YTD percent of normal rainfall. Of course, it’s put out by the National Weather Service so you probably think it’s a conspiracy.

Well thank goodness! My allergies have been terrible lately & this rain oughta knock down all that pollen so I can get a break from the sneezing, itchy eyes & runny nose……. but the rain will make the weeds & flowers grow & produce even more pollen, won’t it? So it’s actually a bad thing … Mother Nature is cruel. Some people think it a miserable sneezing fit is funny, but it snot.

Rain, good. But my joints hurt! Dangit. Cold, damp weather + arthritis = painful knees. And no, it’s not an old wives tale.

23 Silva March 31, 2014 at 1:24 PM

I so hear what you’re saying Stu Feenose & macawlady. Poor dears. But YIPPEE anyway!!!

It’s a good thing I sprayed the weeds yesterday, as well as pulling the ones in areas that cannot be sprayed!
