Forecast: Unseasonable weather could last all week

Rain, gusty winds, cool temperatures and chance of thunderstorms forecast through Sunday

A stretch of unseasonable weather is back in the Bay Area, starting last night and continuing through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

The system is expected to spread across the region today and tonight (May 15).

Wind gusts of up to 40 mph are possible Wednesday through Thursday. The strongest gusts will be on the hills, mountains and on the coast, weather officials said.

One-half to 1 inch of rain is expected over much the area, with up to 2 inches possible in the North Bay and on coastal mountains. Rain may be lighter in some valleys.

A second system will arrive Thursday, bringing more rain and possible thunderstorms, weather officials said. Hail, lightning and brief heavy rain may accompany the thunderstorms.

More rain and gusty winds are possible on Saturday and Sunday.
