Rain, thunderstorms, lightning moving through Bay Area

Chance of rain will linger through Saturday

Rain, thunderstorms and lightning are moving north though the Bay Area this morning and the chance of rain will linger through Saturday, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service said.

As of 10 a.m., the rain, thunderstorms and lightning were in the East and North bays, meteorologist Roger Gass said. Lightning has been reported mostly east of Concord and east of Napa.

Especially in the Concord area, people have reported seeing lightning, Gass said.

Throughout the day, the best chance of rain is in inland areas, while rain in San Francisco is also a possibility.

Most locations that get rain will see a tenth of an inch or less, though areas that get heavier amounts could record up to a quarter of an inch, according to Gass.

The rain is expected to spread throughout the day and may affect the evening commute.
