The heaviest rains will fall on Sunday before noon. Sunday afternoon, scattered showers will mix with rays of sunshine.

The heaviest rain will be in the remote North Bay Mountains with more than 2″ forecast. An inch for Marin is likely with 0.25″ to 0.75″ for the rest of the Bay Area through Tuesday .

There’s also a chance of thunderstorms on Monday, according to ABC7 meteorologist Lisa Argen.

The chance of scattered showers continues through Tuesday morning.

Importantly, this will not end fire season – more likely to slow it down.

September 2017 and 2019 saw warm weather in early September followed by rain in the middle of the month. Fast forward to October 2017 and 2019, the Wine Country and Kincade fires started respectively.

We need more rain in the lower elevations and solid rain over a period of time to end the fire season.
