Don't bother fixing your hair today. Or tomorrow for that matter. The National Weather Service posted a "special weather" alert warning of a strong cold front headed to Northern California that'll bring lots of rain and even more wind.

According to the March 31 alert, the heavy rain will start Monday morning and hit again this afternoon as the cold front passes through the region. In addition, there will be some unruly wind with gusts blowing up to 40 MPH. So hold onto your umbrella.

The "cold and unstable" air mass will persist through Tuesday night bringing widespread showers, thunderstorms, and even hail.

More scattered showers will fall on San Francisco until late Wednesday. When it's all said and done, we should've soaked up much as 1 inch of rainfall in the lower areas and up to two inches in the hills, according to the National Weather Service.

Here's an important excerpt from the NWS alert:

Anyone planning outdoor activities from Monday through Wednesday should be prepared for adverse weather conditions. The Monday afternoon commute will be adversely affected and difficult driving conditions will continue off and on throughout at lest Tuesday evening.

it'll clear up for a day before the rain starts falling again on Friday.

  • 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.'"
