It is definitely the calm before the storm.
The National Weather Service is forecasting showers and light winds during the day Saturday, but then be prepared for a potential onslaught.
Heavy rains are predicted for late Saturday night and into Sunday morning. Breezy conditions are also expected.
The downpours will undoubtedly saturate an already soaked East Bay landscape.
In the 24 hours from 5 p.m. Thursday to 5 p.m. Friday, Concord received 1.67 inches of rain while Walnut Creek got 2.27 inches. Orinda received 2.77 inches and the summit on Mount Diablo got 4.08 inches.
From 5 p.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Saturday, Concord received another quarter inch of rain while Orinda got another three-quarters of an inch. The Mount Diablo summit received more than an inch and a half in that 24-hour period.
More power outages are likely on Sunday. Early Friday morning, there were more than 15,000 PG&E customers in the Bay Area without electricity. Most of them had power back on by early afternoon.
However, as of late Friday evening, there were still 2,800 customers without electricity, including 800 in the East Bay.
On Saturday evening, PG&E reported slightly more than 100 customers were still without power.
