SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A fresh round of chilly rain is set to drench the region Christmas Eve but Christmas Day will be dry.

The next round of rain will hit the North Bay late Wednesday and move over the Golden Gate Bridge on Thursday, Christmas Eve.

With the rain, king tides are expected in the San Francisco Bay and at Ocean Beach.

And the rain means good news for those headed to the mountains for a white Christmas.

The storm was set bring roughly four feet of snow to high elevations of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, bringing prime powder to skiers and snow boarders.

Kirkwood, Heavenly and Northstar, reported getting roughly 3 feet of fresh snow between Monday and Tuesday mornings. About a foot of snow was reported at Boreal, Sierra at Tahoe, Band Diamond Peak.
