Strongest storm of the week to hit Bay Area on Friday


WALNUT CREEK (KRON) – After a wet Wednesday morning, the Bay Area will get a brief break from the rain before another storm moves into the region.

Morning rain will give way to afternoon sunshine and dry skies later on Wednesday. 

Expect a dry day Thursday ahead of our heaviest rain this week on Friday. However, make sure you still have your umbrella handy Thursday as scattered showers may persist in some areas.

A cold front will arrive on Friday bringing a round of widespread rainfall and gusty winds, according to the National Weather Service.

Showers will likely linger into Saturday night before tapering off on Sunday, which will see the best conditions for venturing outside.
