Marin weather forecast offers more late-season rain

Storms are expected to blanket Marin with rain that could affect commuter traffic throughout the week.

The first system is forecast to bring no more than a quarter-inch of rain to the lower elevations of Marin on Monday night through Tuesday, said National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Mehle. Mount Tamalpais might get up to a half-inch of rain.

It is considered to be a weaker system than a storm lingering over British Columbia and is expected to bring rain to Marin on Wednesday night through Friday. The second system includes a cold front off the California coast, which is expected to bring as much as 0.75 inches of rain at lower elevations and more than an inch of rain at higher elevations.

“This second system is going to be stronger and has a better amount of moisture associated with it,” Mehle said.

The stronger system also includes the slight chance of thunderstorms and small hail on Thursday.
