What the National Weather Service calls a “winter-like storm system” has pelted the North Bay with 1-2 inches of rain in the past 24 hours and lesser amounts throughout the Bay Area, with more precipitation forecast into the night.
Isolated thunderstorms are still in the picture, with potential for "periods of brief heavy downpours and small hail."
The NWS has noted unofficial May 15 rainfall records at the Northern California precipitation capital of Venado and the Santa Rosa and Oakland airports.
"Needless to say the much hyped anomalously wet May system did pretty well," the NWS said dryly amidst the rain.
Coming up: A break in the wet Thursday night and Friday, then ... wait for it ... another storm on Saturday.
