Heavy Rain and Wind on the Way to Pinole-Hercules

Don't leave home without an umbrella. Or better yet, don't leave home in this cruddy weather.

The National Weather Service has issued a warning for the "first strong cold front of the season," which will affect towns from the North Bay all the way to Monterey.

Power outages, downed trees and traffic accidents are expected in the area should winds get high enough. In some areas, according to the NWS, winds will reach 70 miles per hour.

Wind this strong can make driving difficult, warns the NWS, so be careful in your morning commute, especially if you're driving a "high profile" vehicle.

In Pinole, the NWS predicts slower winds, peaking at 32 miles per hour, but a 90 percent chance of rain and high temperatures in the upper 50s.

The rain is predicted to last at least through Sunday with the wind tapering off by Thursday or Friday. Precipitation is much less likely by Monday.
