This wasn't in the forecast, but as of 1 p.m., the clouds covering San Francisco just dumped a smidgen of rain on the city for the first time in months.
The last time we even saw a fraction of a tenth of an inch of wet stuff was in September, but real rain has not come to SF since springtime. And just the other day, a local meteorologist was holding out hope that a European forecast model for next week might be right, with a winter storm possibly bringing rain to the Bay Area next Wednesday.
Today's forecast from weather.com showed only a 10 percent chance of precipitation, and that appears to be enough, because my backyard is quite wet now and the drizzle is still coming down.
Sorry if you didn't bring an umbrella and this is your lunch hour. But really we should all be rejoicing that there's an end in sight to this fire season.

The only type of rain we will see in the #BayArea will come as drizzle. Getting reports of scattered drizzle in parts of the #NorthBay. Could see drizzle along the #SanFrancisco Peninsula today/tomorrow. Highs will be at or below normal in the 60s.
