Showers and rain this week

SF Gate/Hamed Aleaziz, 11/19/16.  "Wet, windy weather to continue over holiday week."

"Heavy winds and rain swept through the Bay Area on Saturday, and forecasters expected the wet conditions to continue through the weekend — and possibly resurface just before Thanksgiving.
Gusts of up to 45 mph belted the region Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service, and a wind advisory remained in effect through the evening. The Weather Service also issued a high-surf advisory for the coast from Monterey to Sonoma County through Sunday afternoon.

Showers were forecast to continue Sunday and taper off by Monday morning, said Bob Benjamin, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.  For those traveling early in the holiday week, the weather should cooperate. The majority of Monday and Tuesday is expected to remain dry, according to Benjamin. But for those with midweek travel plans, the rain could become a factor.

Another storm is forecast for the region late Tuesday, bringing scattered showers through Wednesday. Most of Thanksgiving Day should be dry, according to the Weather Service, but showers are predicted for late in the afternoon and evening.  Another system is expected to hit the Bay Area next weekend. “It’s basically an unsettled, wet weather week,” Benjamin said. The weather comes as good news for a region hit by five years of drought. In remote Venado, which is west of Healdsburg, more than 4.5 inches of rain fell Saturday morning, with more expected to pound the area through the weekend."
