Original post: The Bay Area is in for a semi-unusual weather event beginning early Thursday: June rain.
We say semi-unusual, or perhaps quasi-atypical, because while rain in June is a relatively infrequent occurrence in most of California -- with no precipitation recorded in 53 of the 167 Junes in the San Francisco weather record -- it is not at all unheard of.
It last rained in June all the way back in 2015, when San Francisco got .01 of an inch on the 1st of the month and .11 on the 10th. The last June you might call rainy was in 2011, when the city recorded 2.02 inches, including .99 on June 4 and .81 on June 28.
We'll get back to the historical record after taking a look into the immediate future.
