The National Weather Service is confirming what forecasters have predicted since Monday: We're going to have a rainy weekend, with this fall's next big storm hitting today.

KRON 4 reports that "a storm system rolling through the region will bring heavy rainfall" Thursday, with the intensity and coverage of the rainfall to increase throughout the day. This new storm, the Chron reports, is expected to net SF as much as 1.25 inches of rain.

"Light amounts of rain will dot the Bay Area earlier in the day on Thursday before heavier downpours hit later that night and into Friday morning," the Chron reports. By Friday afternoon, the rain is expected to cease, but that might be a brief pause — the National Weather Service says there's a 20 to 30 percent chance that we'll get even more rain Saturday and Sunday.

Monday is expected to be dry, the Chron reports, even as KRON 4 says that "Halloween night could see rain return by 8 p.m." Guess we'll find out!

Today's rain is likely to snarl the commute on Thursday evening and Friday morning, KRON 4 warns, with "slick, wet roads" expected.
