SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) – 2021 brings a dose of wet weather to the Bay Area. A trio of storms is expected to soak the region over a period of seven days from the New Year.

ABC7 news meteorologist Mike Nicco is tracking the three storms, including a weak atmospheric flow.

“We’re going to leave 2020 behind because we only have 28% to 38% of the average (rainfall). It’s the year the drought returned,” Nicco said.

But 2021 is a different story.

Nicco’s forecast shows a series of light and moderate storms.

“We’ll have more and more clouds and rain on Friday night. It’s a 1 on the Storm Impact Scale,” said Nicco.

The wet weather is expected to arrive in North Bay around 8 p.m. before moving into the heart of the bay around midnight. The storm will leave South Bay in the early hours of Saturday morning with some random showers until around noon.

Bottom line? Nicco says don’t expect a downpour this weekend. But as soon as we are on Monday, the time has come!

“I’m really looking forward to the week ahead with a couple of strong, soaked storms,” ​​said Nicco.

The 7-day forecast is very active.

“It will be rainy and windy for most of Monday. We have a weak atmospheric storm. It will bleed until Tuesday morning. Then our next storm will bleed on Wednesday through Thursday. Right now this storm 1 is on the storm -Impact- Scale, but it could be almost as strong as Monday. “
