More stormy weather rolling through Palo Alto this week

Rain, wind expected through weekend

It is said that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, but as the end of the month approaches, the Bay Area is readying for yet another round of storms.

Rain and wind started ripping through the region early Thursday morning. National Weather Service meteorologist Austin Cross said the latest system likely won't be as severe as the storm that brought hail and funnel clouds to the Bay Area last week, but that he expects rain and strong winds.

"There's a possibility of some thunderstorms, but nothing that extreme," Cross said.

Winds of up to 40 mph are possible, especially in the North Bay coastal hills and in the Santa Cruz Mountains, he said.

"Most of the rain will be tomorrow morning, and it'll turn into showers tomorrow night," Cross said.

Another storm system is expected to arrive Friday night, bringing more rain and wind. Showers will likely taper off by Sunday. Cross said he doesn't expect to see severe flooding from the approaching storms but that small creeks and streams could overflow.
