Scattered Showers, Breezy Conditions Return to the Bay Area

After a brief respite from a stormy week of weather, much of the Bay Area on Sunday once again saw a return of scattered rain and breezy conditions.

Scattered showers were already falling across parts of the region Sunday morning. Off-and-on showers are expected to continue through the afternoon before heavier showers kick in around 6 p.m. in the North Bay and spread to the south, weather officials said.

Sunday’s storm has prompted officials to issue a wind advisory between 6 p.m. Sunday and 4 a.m. Monday for the coast and areas immediately hugging the San Francisco Bay. Wind speeds are slated to check in between 20 and 30 mph with some gusts peaking as high as 45 mph.

The National Weather Service has also issued a coastal flood advisory between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. Sunday for areas along the water.

Rainfall totals for Sunday and Monday are not expected to come close to what the Bay Area witnessed during the middle of last week when a major storm system lashed the region with widespread rain.

The coastal hills, North Bay mountains and Santa Cruz Mountains could lead the way with about one-half inch of rain collected, according to NBC Bay Area Meteorologist Rob Mayeda. Locations in the valleys and near the bay could only see about one-quarter of an inch of rain.

When it comes to Sunday night’s Super Blood Wolf Moon, Bay Area residents may or may not be able to catch a glimpse of the lunar phenomenon due to mostly cloudy skies.
