Wunderground predicts a steady increase in pluvial possibilities: 40% chance of rain Sunday, 50% Monday, 60% Tuesday and Wednesday and 70% on Thursday.

The week started with a jolt as Berkeley was shaken awake with two strong earthquakes at 5:33 am on Monday morning. That same morning we reported on a multiple shooting on Bonar Street that had happened the night before. And two days later we revealed new information about a Berkeley street shoot-out in December.
