This hazardous weather outlook is for the San Francisco Bay Area.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A cold front will bring rain to the Bay Area.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A very large long period northwest swell is expected to begin
arriving on Sunday and continue into the first part of next week.
This will result in hazardous beach conditions due to:

*  large run-up waves, strong rip currents, sneaker waves, and
   strong longshore currents.

A high surf warning will likely be issued once the wave energy is
within 48 hours of arriving.

Also, an active weather pattern is expected to continue Saturday
through Monday morning. A stronger and wetter system is expected
to produce widespread rain across our entire region Sunday
afternoon and Sunday night along with locally strong and gusty
winds.

Hazards associated with the second system include:

*  Possible period of moderate to heavy rain, which may result in
   temporary local flooding of low lying areas and ponding on
   roadways.

*  Locally strong and gusty winds, especially along the coast and
   in the hills.

Please continue to monitor the latest forecasts.

A return to dry weather is expected late Monday through Thursday
as an upper level ridge builds into the area.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
No spotter activation is expected.
