A storm called a ‘Pineapple Express’ is forecast to soak the Bay Area later this week. 

The National Weather Service says an “aggressive” atmospheric river is building up moisture in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii.

The storm is expected to bring rain to the region Thursday through Saturday.

A ‘Pineapple Express’  is a long and narrow atmospheric river that forms in the tropical Pacific, according to the National Ocean Service. 

The storm is forecast to dump three to four inches of rain in the North Bay. San Francisco could get up to two inches.
