SAN JOSE -- A light rain is falling in parts of the Bay Area on Wednesday morning, but there might not be enough of the wet stuff to officially make a measurement with the National Weather Service.
As of 7 a.m., only trace amounts of rain had been recorded in the South Bay, according to Diana Henderson, a forecaster with the National Weather Service. So when it comes to official rainfall totals, San Jose and other South Bay communities may still register .00 for the current season, which began July 1.
Henderson said less than one-hundredth of an inch of rain is considered a trace amount. As of 9 a.m., only a handful of locations in the Bay Area recorded more than a trace amount, including Los Gatos and San Francisco with .01 of an inch of rain.
That said, the rain caused some morning commuters to get their windshield wipers going.
The rain resulted from a trough coming out of the Pacific Northwest which had "just enough oomph to bring some drips and drabs" to the Bay Area, Henderson said.
"It should be out of here by" Wednesday afternoon, Henderson said.
Once the clouds clear out, sunny skies with temperatures in the 80s to low 90s are expected through the weekend.
