SAN FRANCISCO -- Forecasters are predicting mostly cloudy skies and light rain for the Bay Area Monday -- unusual weather for a June day that could break rainfall records, and is expected to delay flights at San Francisco International Airport.
Light rains are expected Monday, with heavier showers coming this evening and into Tuesday, but rains should taper off by Wednesday, said National Weather Service forecaster Bob Benjamin. The Bay Area could see between a half-inch and inch of rain over the 48-hour period, Benjamin said.
"We very well may break the record for this date," Benjamin said, referring to Monday.
High temperatures will be in the 60s to lower 70s, with lows in the 50s, he said.
Low clouds are expected to cause flight delays of about an hour at San Francisco International Airport Monday morning, an airport duty manager said.
Delays are expected between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m., and may reach an hour and a half, airport officials said. As of 7 a.m., 11 departing flights and 10 arriving flights have been canceled, officials said. No flight delays are expected at Oakland International Airport and Mineta San Jose International Airport.
Travelers are asked to check with their airline for more information about possible delays.
