Hopefully, you've embraced the wet weather, because there will be more to come -- a lot more.

The showers you've been experiencing today will quickly turn into a nice rainstorm by this evening and continue throughout the weekend, dropping as much as seven inches of rain on Northern California, according to the National Weather Service is reporting.

You might even see some intermittent flooding in the Bay Area, said Suzanne Sims, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Sims laughed at us when we asked if this rainstorm would put even a small dent in the state's drought. "Every little bit helps," she said with a chuckle.

Most of the anticipated flooding will be in the Coastal Hills, where there will be seven inches of rain.

As for San Francisco: You can expect no more than four inches of rain between now and Sunday, but we know you'll take what you can get. Temperatures will not vary much, hovering in the upper 40s and lower 50s through the weekend, Sims said.

Tomorrow you will see the heaviest downpour of the weekend. So get outside and feel those raindrops while it lasts, because the sun will return later next week.

Down here at the bottom of the mountain it rained and blew and rained some more. Also washed away what little snow that was on the ground at this elevation. It's all good!

I'm hoping we get enough rain so the creek has water running in it. We haven't had a trickle since last winter.

Glad you are getting some rain out there. Be careful of flooded low lying spots, ok?

Oh dear, people in San Francisco don't seem to know how to drive a car under the best of circumstances. I see several more pedestrians getting hit over the weekend
