Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.

A series of storms is expected to hit the Bay Area this week.

Rain is forecasted to start early Wednesday with at least showers every day through Sunday, dumping up to 8 inches of rain on parts of the region, a National Weather Service forecaster said Monday.

The storms will start around the time of the morning commute on Wednesday and continue through the weekend, bringing winds of 40 to 50 mph and 1 to 3 inches of rain to most parts of the Bay Area, forecaster Steve Anderson said.

"This is certainly the biggest storm of the season so far," Anderson said. "Typically, we get our big rain events in December and January."

Breezy conditions are also expected on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night.

High temperatures are expected to reach only the mid-60s.

If flooding occurs, Dublin residents can pick up sand bags at the Dublin corporation yard, 5777 Scarlett Court. The bags will be placed outside the building there. Residents can pick them up day or night.

The storms might also dampen some of the holiday activities planned around Dublin.

The city's annual tree lighting is planned for 7 p.m. Thursday at the Civic Center.

The annual Holiday Faire is scheduled to begin at noon Saturday at Heritage Park. Santa and his sleigh might get wet.
