An inch of rain is expected to be dumped on San Francisco on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

Rain will likely start falling at 4 a.m. and continue through 9 p.m., according to an hourly rain forecast chart.

There is also a chance of rain as early as 11 p.m. Friday and as late as 3 a.m. Sunday.

The spell of rain in San Francisco is part of a broader storm pattern in the Bay Area, with the greatest amount of precipitation expected to fall in the North Bay, an X post from the weather service said.

A flood advisory is in effect for Friday along the San Francisco Bay Shoreline and North Bay Shoreline from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The tides will be up to 0.25 feet higher than normal, and travelers should allow for extra time in case of road closures, particularly in low-lying, flood-prone areas.
