The headlines are head turning. “San Francisco could endure month’s worth of rain in a single day this week,” reads the San Francisco Chronicle. “Stormy weather arrives this week to rudely interrupt spring,” says SFist. “March-like storm to blast California with drenching rain, mountain snow and severe weather,” shouts AccuWeather.

Indeed, the Bay Area will play host a wet weather system starting Wednesday and lasting until Thursday.

“Between 1 and 2 inches of rain is expected in San Francisco, with 0.50 to 1 inch of rain possible in Los Angeles. San Diego may even receive up to 0.50 of an inch of rain from this system,” reports AccuWeather. “Even parts of the San Joaquin Valley will have to deal with showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday night into Thursday that could produce localized heavy downpours and some incidents of small hail.”

This rain is being billed as “unusual” for May.

And for those of you participating in the annual Bay to Breakers bacchanalia on Sunday, be advised that, at least as of Monday, the weekend forecast indicates AM showers will saturate the city during the tipsy race around town. Something to keep in mind before crafting your costumes.
