Weaker El Niño storm arrives Tuesday night

More rain from El Niño is expected to hit the Bay Area this week, according to the National Weather Service.

The next series of storms is anticipated to start late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with the heaviest rainfall expected between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m., according to meteorologist Will Pi.

“There’s definitely another series of storms coming, but they certainly won’t be as strong as the storms we saw a week ago,” Pi said.

Lingering showers Wednesday are expected to briefly dissolve, with moderately heavy rain returning Friday and Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
