As the novelty of last week’s epic and unusual snowstorm in the Bay Area wears off, the region is expected to return on Monday to the wet, windy weather that has become familiar to locals in 2023, according to the National Service. of Meteorology.

The agency has issued yet another winter weather alert that is expected to go into effect between 10 am on Monday and 4 pm on Tuesday, but this time the snow is forecast to keep its distance and accumulate in areas with more than 3,000 feet elevation. Areas in this range, which include the eastern Santa Clara Hills, the Santa Lucia Mountains and Los Padres National Forest, and the mountains of San Benito County and the interior of Monterey County, can see 5 to 10 inches of snow, according to the NWS.

“[Monday’s storm is] It’s going to keep the Bay Area able to see some snow-capped peaks, but it’s definitely not going to get anything close to what we had last week,” said NWS meteorologist Roger Gass.

What most Bay Area residents would likely be looking out for on Monday, however, would be another weather event marked by the now-routine rains and winds. Monday’s system was moving south according to forecasts, with the North Bay receiving the first rains between 5 and 8 am. The storm would move into the Bay Area’s largest population centers after 10 am, according to the NWS.

San Jose, Oakland, San Francisco and Walnut Creek are all forecast to receive no more than half an inch of rain on Monday, combined with highs of 51 degrees making the day chilly and wet. Rains are expected to persist throughout the day and into Tuesday, with lows falling into the mid-40s.

“We expect wet roads throughout the day [Monday]”, said Gass. “Also, we may have some wind gusts – maybe 40 or 45 miles an hour – but they should be brief. We don’t expect the general winds we had again last week. But even so, it will be stormy.
