Bay Area residents will have to weather yet another morning of intense and dangerous fog as they make their way into work.

Be careful on the Bay Bridge!  

The typical fall fog will be blown away by atypical fall winds starting tomorrow morning, bringing that Wizard of Oz effect to San Francisco. According to the National Weather Service the dense fog that's cut visibility to less than a half-mile in many areas will be replaced by fierce gusts reaching 40 to 50 mph in San Francisco and 55 to 70 mph in the East Bay hills.

Once the weird weather settles by Friday, the city will be calmed by crisp temperatures and clear skies, just in time for the weekend.

  • 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.'"
