    San Francisco Has Many Rainy Days Ahead

    A parade of storms will bring rain and possible travel delays to San Francisco area through the weekend.

    The first storm arrived on Wednesday with breezy conditions and a brief round of rain.

    Heavier rain and stronger winds will arrive with a more potent storm today. Significant travel delays are anticipated.

    According to Western Weather Expert Ken Clark, "Urban, stream and small river flooding are possible Friday into the weekend."

    "This very well could end up being a very serious situation for some," Clark added.


    Into the weekend, slower-moving storms will continue to unleash locally heavy rain over the area with a subtropical moisture supply.

    "In the Santa Cruz Mountains, mountains in the North Bay region and in the foothills and mountains east of the Sacramento Valley and northern most San Joaquin Valley, I am expecting 8 to 12 inches with local amounts of 16 to 18 inches," Clark said.

    Elsewhere, expect 2 to 4 inches of rain with local amounts of 5 or 6 inches.

    Enough rain will fall to lead to mudslides and debris flows, especially in recent burn areas.

    "Snow levels in the Sierra will be high, much of the time through Saturday night at, or above, 7,500 feet. Snow accumulations above 8,000 feet will be in many feet, probably 4 to 8 feet at least," Clark said.
