Rain, some snow ex­pected for hol­i­day

Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - LOCAL NEWS - By Pa­trick May

While a ba­si­cally bonedry Novem­ber in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia may have knocked the wind out of our nor­mal storm sea­son, next week could bring much-needed rain and leave us with a wet Thanks­giv­ing and Black Fri­day. And we could see some hail and per­haps a light dust­ing of snow atop Mount Hamil­ton and Mount Di­ablo while the Sierra Ne­vada may see even more of the white stuff.

While South­ern Cal­i­for­nia this week saw rain and even some snow fall, and tem­per­a­tures fell to the low 60s as the sea­son’s in­au­gu­ral storm moved on through, the San Fran­cisco Bay Area has had to cool its heels a few more days be­fore it gets the same wet treat­ment. But come Tues­day evening, the area could see up to a half-inch of rain by the time Wed­nes­day morn­ing rolls around.

The rain should con­tinue through the end of the week as Turkey Day tem­per­a­tures drop into the low 50s by day and low 40s by night. The rea­son: a low-pres­sure sys­tem com­ing in our di­rec­tion from the north, says me­te­o­rol­o­gist Spencer Tan­gen with the Na­tional Weather Ser­vice in Mon­terey.
