Storm brings strong winds to San Francisco 

Hold on to your hats, it’s windy out there.

A storm moving through San Francisco could bring wind speeds as fast as 28 mph, but for by 9 p.m. they are peaking at 20 mph, according to the National Weather Service meteorologist Austin Cross.

The storm is expected to last through the night with moderate rainfall, Cross said. Temperatures will stay in the 50s in The City because of cloud cover.

“We have significant cloud cover,” he said. “So it shouldn’t get too cold.”

The strong winds have created one wind advisory for the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge. The California Highway Patrol said that could change if the gusts increase.

According to Cross, a smaller weaker system will hit San Francisco by Tuesday evening before skies begin to clear.
