No rain in the Bay Area for at least two weeks despite start of rainy season


(KRON) — The much needed rainy season the Bay Area has been anxiously awaiting will be late, according to weather officials, as dry weather is being forecast for at least the next two weeks, possibly more.

“Models are showing a persistent dry pattern” for the next 16 days, he said.

NWS officials posted the message on Twitter about the dry spell because residents may be wondering when the rains will start since the rainy season is under way, NWS forecaster Bob Benjamin said.

It’s not unusual for the first two weeks of October to be dry, he said. The rains typically start in mid October, Benjamin said.

But it may be later than mid October before the rains begin, he said.
