With more rain on the way, it may not be a white Christmas for Redwood City but it will likely be a wet one.
Rain is expected to arrive Tuesday and last through the evening, according to the National Weather Service. Daytime highs will range from the 50s to low 60s in much the Bay Area, including Redwood City, with overnight lows in the high 40s to low 50s.
Forecasters said to expect intermittent periods of light to moderate rain lasting through the holiday weekend, with no more than a quarter of an inch expected each day in Redwood City. The greater Bay Area could see a total of 2-3 inches of rain. Wind speeds are expected to stay under 10 miles per hour.
Precipitation will likely be spread out over the course of the week, which should mitigate major impacts. Still, forecasters urge residents to prepare for minor flooding, slick roads and debris flows, especially near the sites of recent wildfires.
According to the NWS, wet conditions will likely impact travel during the busy holiday week, particularly over the Sierras and the western Nevada valleys.
