Rain expected today, chance of showers for Halloween

No rain yet in early morning hours as predicted

Widespread rain in the North Bay is expected to move south into

San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area this morning, National Weather Services officials said.

The rain could be heavy at times.

The North Bay will see the greatest accumulations with anywhere

from three quarters to 1.5 inches in the valleys and 1.5 to 2.5 inches in the higher elevations of Marin, Napa and Sonoma counties.

Oakland and San Francisco can expect about a half an inch while

San Jose will see a lesser amount, weather officials said.

Most of the rain will fall during the early morning hours.

Thunderstorms are possible, mainly in the North Bay, and any will be capable of producing hail, lightning and gusty winds.

Thunderstorms and light rain throughout the Bay Area may linger today.

Residents can expect a brief lull tonight and early Monday but

rain may return Monday evening just in time for Halloween trick-or-treating, according to weather officials.

North Bay valleys could see a third to a half an inch of rain

while areas close to San Francisco Bay can expect a tenth to a quarter of an inch.

Southern parts of the Bay Area will see less than a quarter of an

inch, weather officials said. Showers are expected to linger into Tuesday with drier weather expected later in the week.
