Previously: 50 MPH Winds Possible Late Tonight As Component Of Predicted Big Ass Storm, Major Storm Expected To Hit SF Monday, Boaters Warned Away From Water During This Week’s Storm

As if you didn’t already know, a cold front that’s headed in our directions has connected with the remnants of Typhoon Melor, making a magical meteorological cocktail that has forecasters like National Weather Service’s Diana Henderson predicting doom and disaster.

The storm;s expected to hit at about midnight tonight (spooky!) and Henderson says that by “commute time it should be fairly nasty, and it should remain fairly ugly probably throughout the afternoon commute.”
SFist reminds us that San Franciscans can score as many as 10 sandbags per address TOTALLY FOR FREE from the Department of Public Works Corporation Yard.

Here in San Francisco, we should expect 1-3 inches of rain and really high winds. Rainfall is expected to taper off Wednesday and Thursday should be “fairly nice” and partly cloudy, Henderson said.

So, lay in the provisions! Batten the hatches! 3 inches of wet are on the way!
