Good morning and welcome back to Tuesday's roundup of news in San Francisco.

The North Bay will be hit first around 7 p.m. Then the level 1 storm will head to South Bay and East Bay around 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. The heaviest of the rain is likely on Sunday night through Monday when a level 2 storm is expected.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors will vote Tuesday on the sale of development rights to the air above City Hall.

If approved, about 1.2 million square feet of unused development rights would be sold at $37.50 per square foot. Depending on price inflation, San Francisco could receive around $45 million or more in revenue over the next four to five years.

City Hall's development rights are almost as large as San Francisco's tallest building, Salesforce Tower, which is 1.4 million square feet.

City officials on Monday announced that enough signatures have been verified to put three San Francisco school board members — President Gabriela López, Vice President Faauuga Moliga and commissioner Alison Collins — on the ballot for a special recall election. The vote is now set to take place on Feb. 15.

The last local recall election on a San Francisco ballot was in 1983 when there was an attempt to recall then-Mayor Dianne Feinstein.
