Close those windows (I know, it’s cold, but I still keep one open in the kitchen — grilled cheese with the windows closed is BAD NEWS) tonight: National Weather Service forecaster Diana Henderson says that a winter weather system is expected to bring rain and gusty winds to the SF late tonight.
The system is expected to bring about one-half to three quarters of an inch of rain to the region, along with wind gusts of about 20 to 25 mph, Henderson said.
Showers are predicted again for Thursday and this coming weekend. Henderson also says that “a larger weather system is expected to hit the Bay Area next week,” which totally fits in with that end times thing we’ve been rocking with the earthquakes, Great Highway sliding into the ocean, etc.
This wack weather is also the reason you’re supposed to stay out of the ocean starting tomorrow night. Sure, 20 foot waves and pounding rain sounds very Point Break, but I don’t want to be writing a story about your body washing up on Ocean Beach. For real.
