Cross your fingers: "'Near-record' rainfall could hit the Bay Area soon" [View all]

There’s a chance the Bay Area could see above-normal rainfall this month that would slightly improve drought conditions and potentially put an end to the region’s wildfire season, according to meteorologists.

A storm system over the northeastern Pacific Ocean could bring as much as two inches of rain from the Bay Area up to Redding from Oct. 20-24.

The heavy rainfall would be a “possible near-record breaking precipitation for late October,” according to the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center.

Meteorologist Roger Gass explained the potential record-breaking rainfall would be measured against rainfall for the month of October, not the kinds of showers the Bay Area sees in January and February.

This would be great
