Light rain and cold weather to chill in the Bay Area this weekend

Drizzle arriving on Friday morning provided a preview of light to moderate rain and colder temperatures that are forecast throughout the Bay Area this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Portions of the Bay Area may see light to moderate rain into the afternoon, with heavy rain in some isolated instances, according to Rachel Kennedy, a National Weather Service meteorologist. A low-pressure system coming from the Gulf of Alaska was travelling along the coast of California, she said; the first round of rain will come from the system’s outer edges.

Kennedy forecast moderate rainfall in the East Bay, South Bay and central coast Friday morning into the afternoon and evening. The North Bay and Peninsula were expected to get light to moderate rain of their own from Friday afternoon into evening.

Most lowland areas in the East Bay, South Bay and central coast were expected to receive between half an inch and 1 inch of rain, while the North Bay could get between 1.5 and 2 inches. The Santa Cruz Mountains were expected to receive as much as 3 inches of rain, though that number may only reach an inch and a half.
