Get Ready for a Weekend of Wind in the Bay Area

Summer seems to be inching closer and closer here in the Bay Area, though, like many things in our lives at the moment, it’s doing a two-steps-forward, three-steps-back shuffle. After a heat wave last week, things got cloudy, rainy, cold and windy on the weekend.

It appears that we might do a rinse and repeat this weekend, albeit a tad milder on the rain and cold front:

Now this five-day forecast for Berkeley looks like Bay Area summer weather if we’ve ever seen it. Break out the foulies and the number 3. (We find that weather.com slightly underestimates the wind speed, and generally add three- to five miles an hour to the forecast.)

Oh yeah, and with a full moon on Friday the 5th, there are going to be some big tides through the weekend, as well.

Careful if you’re navigating a channel or harbor entrance early in the morning this weekend. The bottom will be dropping out.
