Wednesday's weather forecast for Pleasanton, Tri-Valley

Rain expected to continue into weekend

Rain, rain and more rain is in the forecast today for Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley, where a high temperature of 56 degrees is expected by mid-day. Variable winds of 5 to 30 mph are anticipated.

Tonight the Tri-Valley is expected to be mostly cloudy with periods of rain. Low temperatures in the lower to mid 40s and variable winds of 5 to

20 mph are anticipated.

Rain will continue on Wednesday with high temperatures in the mid 50s and variable winds of 5 to 30 mph anticipated.

Residents can get up to 10 free sandbags at the city of Pleasanton Service Center, located at 3333 Busch Road. The sandbags can be picked up at any time, and are located in the parking lot under a brown tarp.

City spokeswoman Joanne Hall said 300 sandbags have been picked up since last Friday. To ensure there are enough to go around, Hall said residents should be prepared to show proof of residency if requested and sandbags will not be given to contractors. If city staff see contractors, they will be asked to leave.

The sandbags are not UV resistant so they aren't expected to last more than a season or two before they disintegrate, Hall said, adding that they're not meant to be a permanent fix, but will help in the short-term against flooding.

City crews have prepared in advance of the rainy season to clear culverts and drains, and residents are encouraged to clear leaves from neighborhood drains as a part of this effort.

Those who see flooded areas are asked to call the Operations Services Department between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at 931-5500. Flooding should be reported to the police department between 3:30 p.m. and 7 a.m. at 931-5100.

What's the big "ugh" and "can't move back to San Diego quickly enough" all about? This forecast is for typical winter weather in the bay area, and it's about time it arrived here this year... unless you're begging for a drought and water rationing?? Make a daily sweep of any stormdrains on your end of the street, pull out the rain gear, drive carefully and thank goodness for the rain!

Thank god for the rain!

Seriously, compared to all the water rationing that we might have to go through its better that we have this minor inconvenience. Although, I am concerned about all the people living in areas prone to landslides.
