Storm to bring rain, hail, strong winds to Bay Area

Snow levels forecast to drop to 3,500 to 4,000 feet

More rain is on its way to the Bay Area as early as Monday, and weather forecasters said to expect cold temperatures, hail, and the possibility of snow on the region's peaks.

The late-season storm is expected to arrive in the North Bay on Monday morning, spreading to San Francisco and the Peninsula throughout the afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Continued showers and a chance of hail and thunderstorms are forecast for the entire Bay Area until Wednesday morning, the weather service said.

Wind gusts associated with the storm front could be between 30 and 40 miles per hour.

Some areas of the North Bay and mountains along the coast could get up to two inches of rain, according to the weather service. San Francisco could get anywhere between a half-inch and an inch of rain.

Snow is expected to fall as low as 3,500 to 4,000 feet, the weather service said.

Motorists should be cautious of slippery conditions on Bay Area roadways and leave extra time to travel over the next couple of days.
