Remember that crazy storm that flooded Muni, blew up a transformer in the Tenderloin, and nearly shut down the city in December 2014? Well, two years to the day, basically, on Thursday (the other was on Thursday, December 11, 2014), a storm will again wallop the city and the surrounding Bay Area with downpours adding up to between two and five inches, as the Chronicle is reporting. Brace yourselves for a hellish commute, or just plan to work from home.
As National Weather Service forecaster Steve Anderson tells the paper, "The entire state will see a good chunk of moisture out of this, and the Bay Area is going to be right in the thick of it."
This could spell disaster for Guerneville again, with the North Bay reportedly expected to get the biggest blast of rain, up to five inches, beginning around 5 a.m.
There's also a high wind watch set for most of the day.
The heaviest rains in the city are expected in the afternoon, and Weather Underground shows the rain not tapering off in SF until about 10 p.m.
Hopefully, this storm won't set any records like the one two years ago. We'll see.
