(AP Wirephoto) Heavy Rain Ends Extended Dry Spell; Skys Gearing The extended dry spell in the Bay Area was broken last night by a heavy downpour, measur- ing .87 of an inch al the State Division of Forestry station at Skylonda. San Mateo city's rainfall measured .40 of an inch; Red- wood City, .32; Belmont, .44, and International Airport, .45. Thunder and lightning crac- kled across the skies, but the rainstorm caused little damage, San Mateo County authorities reported today. Prediction of further rains this morning gave way to one for clearing skies and patches of clouds. However, things were lively enough last night to keep county firemen on the alert.

Two service leads to the Jack Pinosky residence, 227 West Thirty-first Avenue, arced and burned at p.m. On Bayshore Freeway, traffic was slowed to 40 miles an hour as rains pounded windshields faster than wipers could clean them off. Two wires were down in Bur- lingame with arcing wires re- ported in South San Francisco, Millbrae and San Bruno. Fair weather was expected to return to most of California through tomorrow after a low pressure area dumped rain on most of the north state last night. Rainfall was limited to the area from Monterey and Stock- ton northward Sunday. About an inch and a quarter fell at Ukiah. Mount Shasta and Crescent City had nearly as much.
