"The big story is we are coming in like a lion," said Nicco.

Starting Friday night, the Bay Area will be hit with a "2" on the Storm Impact Scale.

"We are going to have light to moderate rain, even the change of thunderstorms and some downpours," said Nicco. "The new storm system is not expected to enhance the flooding, in fact all of our creeks and rivers are supposed to keep receding throughout this event."



It's not just this weekend, keep those umbrellas handy and be ready for more rain over the next couple of weeks.

"We have been getting hit every three to four days with storms and that's going to continue for the next 2 weeks," said Nicco.
