While light rain fell on North Bay in the pre-dawn hours, rain was expected over San Francisco by mid-morning and into the evening.

“Wet roads will be the biggest impact from this system, affecting morning commute in North Bay, and possibly the end of the road to the shoreline of SF Bay,” the National Weather Service.

By the time the storm front moves across the Bay Area, as much as an inch of rain can fall in the coastal North Bay Mountains to a quarter of an inch or more in San Francisco.

“The front is likely to dissipate after crossing the SF Bay area, leaving scattered light showers in its wake during the evening and night hours,” the weather service said.

A second cold front is expected to penetrate the Gulf region late Wednesday night.

“The highest totals will be in coastal North Bay again, but will likely top about an inch, with less than a half an inch in inland North Bay, and less than a quarter of an inch around the SF Bay beach line and points south and east,” the weather service said of Front Two. .

While the area remains trapped in a severe drought, Monday’s rains follow the sweltering month of October.

According to the Weather Service, 10.67 inches of rain falls in Santa Rosa in October — 647 percent of the month’s normal precipitation.
