Three's Company: The Mother Of All Bay Area Storms

Posted By on Thu, Jan 3, 2008 at 11:31 AM


Are you ready San Francisco? Because apparently all hell is about to break loose. I'm talking about the weather, not the tiger. The first of three (count 'em!) storms will slam the area this afternoon carrying all the fixings: heavy rain, high winds and possibly flooding and power outages. The worst is scheduled for tomorrow morning. At noon today a high wind warning goes into effect and already flights are being delayed coming into SFO.

In the Sierra shit is going to get real raw, real quick with wind gusts already clocking in at 100 mph in some places and whiteout conditions expected. The Lake Tahoe area could be buried in up to 10 feet of snow by Sunday. Needless to say, get the umbrellas out and rent a couple of really long movies -- it's going to one of those kind of weekends.

For more hardcore storm porn check out ABC7's Live Doppler Maps, CBS5's Hi-Def Doppler Radar, and NBC11's Weather Plus Map. There's also live webcams here, here and here. Go crazy weather geeks. This is your moment to shine.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
