Silicon Valley hasn’t seen this much rain since 2009

Silicon Valley and the Bay Area are finally getting drenched by some much needed rain.

We haven’t seen this scale of wet weather since 2009.


While this won’t be enough precip to quench California’s thirsty reservoirs, it will help to put a dent in the drought. These downpours may also help wash some of the Human Waste off the streets of San Francisco. Of course it all gets washed into the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean, so be warned, don’t swim in the yellow bay.

Tuesday will see the most powerful of this weeks storms, with the potential for high winds and lightning coming tonight. Watch for delays and cancelled flights at SFO if you’re flying in or out of the area.


Of course this storm will bring some snow up to the Sierra above 7000 feet, so this weekend should be a good time to get some early season snow time in. Check out the Northstar Snow Stake Cam to see if it will be worth the drive up the mountain.


Stay safe out there Silicon Cali peeps! You know Californians can’t drive in the rain. Especially when they’re busy checking their twitter feed instead of watching the road.
