SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Light rain has started in the San Francisco Bay Area as the region braces for a series of storms expected this weekend and into next week.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1TVcZPO ) that National Weather Service forecaster Diana Henderson says light rain will continue on and off Thursday with up to half an inch of precipitation by the end of the day.

The bigger storm will wait to the weekend, however, to hit. Henderson says Saturday afternoon is expected to bring heavy rains and blustery winds.

That weekend storm could dump up to six inches in the higher elevations, another two to four inches in the North Bay and up to two inches in the San Francisco area, the newspaper reported.

The rains could mean up to three feet of snow in the Lake Tahoe region in three days starting Saturday.
