It seems like an awful invitation for people to go out surfing, and I consider it just plain foolhardy, but it's pretty much what you consider your life worth.

This one would be the one to worry about flooding. It's going to be a rainy weekend.

Fog should be the problem for the next couple of days.

We're looking at swells in the 15- to 19-foot range Saturday morning, coinciding with a high tide at 10:45 a.m. of seven feet. Stay away from the water. Surf that high may be pretty to look at, but rather difficult to predict. Breakers can unexpectedly wash over the beach and rocks. They create rip currents and beach erosion. It's not advisable to get terribly close.

It?s not super common and its not impossible.

It's coming in slowly, but it will move in in buckets later on this afternoon.

It will be very dangerous, and we're advising people to stay away.

All told, by the end of Monday, expect 4 to 8 inches of rain in the north counties and 2 to 4 inches in the Bay Area, with the majority of it in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The worst is yet to come.
