Rain expected Thursday in Bay Area

Resident are urged to protect themselves from potential debris flows, flash floods

Showers will leave the North Bay Tuesday, but another storm is due to arrive in the Bay Area on Thursday and possibly over the weekend, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) officials.

Rain is expected to develop Thursday through Friday morning and will probably impact the Thursday afternoon commute.

In Palo Alto, the chance of rain is 90 percent, with winds at 5 to 10 mph.

The rain may be heavy on Thursday evening over the Loma and Soberanes burn scars. There may be as much as one to four inches of rain over the highest peaks, NOAA officials said.

Residents with property in the burn scar areas should protect themselves against potential debris flows or flash floods.

South winds reaching 15 to 24 mph with gusts up to 35 mph may be possible from Thursday to early Friday, NOAA officials said.
