Rain? In May? Yes, and it could even be heavy at times in the Tri-Counties


Cold spring storm also dropping snow level down to 3500 feet.

An unseasonably cold winter storm has arrived in the Tri-Counties.
The low pressure system powering the storm is currently centered off of the San Francisco Bay area. We’ve already had some showers. But, the best chance of rain begins Wednesday afternoon, and lasts into Thursday morning. Meteorologists are expecting a half-inch to inch of rain.

There’s also the potential for the low to become a cutoff low, and stall as it comes down the coast. If that happens, we could see one to three inches of rain. There’s also a chance of thunderstorms late Wednesday into Thursday.

If all that isn’t enough, look for the snow level to drop to around 3500 feet.

The rain is expected to ease up by the weekend, but there could be a few leftover showers on Saturday.
