More rain likely early this week in SF 

More rain is expected to fall on San Francisco as early as Monday after The City received nearly an inch of rain over the weekend despite a brief break from wet weather Sunday.

Another storm heading to the Bay Area could bring at least another half-inch of rain this week, according to National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Strudley.

“It’s still going to probably keep us within the top 10 driest years on record on the Peninsula, but every little bit helps,” Strudley said.

San Francisco received about three-quarters of an inch of rain over the weekend. Similar amounts of rain are anticipated early this week.

Showers will likely hit the Bay Area again beginning Monday, with heavier rain setting in right around the evening commute. There’s also a chance of thunderstorms and small amounts of hail as this next system moves in, he said.

“We’re expecting Tuesday in general to be wet,” Strudley said. “It looks like showers may taper off as late as Wednesday morning. We have a slight chance of rain late in the week, but it’s looking more and more like that may not pan out.”

Next weekend is expected to be dry but cool, with highs in the 60s during the day and in the 40s and 50s at night.
