Wet weather won't last long, forecaster says

A weak storm system is making its way through the Bay Area today, but once it passes, there will be dry weather for the next week or so, a National Weather Service forecaster said.

The system is "moving quite quickly," and as of 11 a.m. had traveled from the North Bay to the southern reaches of the Monterey Bay area, forecaster Diana Henderson said.

The rain is expected to end by the end of the day, and the region will stay dry for at least the next week, Henderson said.

"It be should be a nice, dry Hanukkah," she said.

The Jewish holiday begins Saturday night and continues for eight days.

The heaviest rain in the past 24 hours was recorded in the North Bay, with 1.5 inches in the North Bay hills, Henderson said.

The bulk of the system has moved south through the Santa Cruz Mountains and into Monterey, leaving behind about .5 inches of precipitation in those areas.

"There's not huge amounts of rain," she said.

Downtown San Francisco saw an inch of rainfall in the past day, she said.

Although the rain should soon be on hiatus, there could be some residual showers, Henderson said. Cloudy skies are expected over the next few days.
