Bay Area forecast: A chance of rain as storm moves west – California


A storm system with an “unusual” path is forecast to move west toward the Central Coast overnight Thursday, bringing a slight chance of rain and isolated thunderstorms to the Bay Area, according to the National Weather Service.

The system, moving west from Nevada, will bring a 15 to 20 percent chance of rain to most Bay Area cities, according to the weather service. The best chances of rain will occur farther south in San Benito and Monterey counties.

“We’re not expecting widespread rainfall from this system,” said Roger Gass, a meteorologist with the weather service.

Goss said the wettest areas along the Central Coast may receive about one-tenth of an inch.

Thursday is expected to be dry for most of the day, with the system approaching in the afternoon or evening, according to the weather service. The system will drop into Southern California this weekend, allowing for “dry and mild weather” in the Bay Area through early next week.
