    San Francisco: Rounds of Rain Forecast Through Sunday

    There will be several rounds of much-needed rainfall into early next week around San Francisco.

    A series of storms will move in from the Pacific this weekend, bringing snow to Oregon and rain to drought-stricken California into next week.

    While each of these storms will not deliver overwhelming rainfall, the cumulative effect will bring some temporary relief from the drought and will help to keep the landscape damp, rather than tinder dry over northern California.


    Rainfall from each of the three storms or so could exceed 1 inch around San Francisco. The combined total rainfall through Sunday in few locations up north, where the mountainside faces the Pacific could pick up 6 inches or more of rain.

    Through the weekend, up to 6 feet of snow could fall on the high country of the northern part of the Sierra Nevada. This would not only provide some runoff later on, but give the ski industry a boost in the short term.

    According to AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, "occasional rain is in the offing for Monterey, Calif., and the Pebble Beach Pro-Am through this weekend. Temperatures will be mainly in the 50s."

    While rain and mountain snow over northern California is forecast to taper off Monday another storm may drop in prior to Valentine's Day.
