And just when you were getting adjusted to the amazing January weather. 

The National Weather Service says that the warm, dry weather is coming to an end starting tomorrow when block of high pressure breaks, creating a weekend-long downpour. 

You can expect up three inches of rain in San Francisco and as much as 10 inches in the Sonoma region, according to the NWS

And it's not just going to be rainy, it will be damn windy, too, with gusts exceeding 50 mph along the coast. 

In short: it's not a great time to go surfing. "Not at all," says Austin Cross, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. 

At this point, we have flooding to worry about, especially on Friday when San Francisco will see the most rainfall. So when you get home tonight, clear those leaves and debris from sidewalks. 

And, sorry, kids, you still have to go to school (as far as we know).

  • 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.'"
