8:02 pm
will likely see rapid rise is unlikely could flow over their banks. of course, the burn areas. that is a major concern as we're likely to see some debris flows from all that rain coming down in a short amount of time to go along with that expecting some very strong gusty winds with this storm system. this one. what's called a bomb cyclone that mean the area of low pressure going to rapidly really deepen over about a 24 hour period that is going to set itself up for some extremely gusty winds. so the entire bay area has been posted under watch that will soon become a warning as we get into sunday morning. that will continue throughout the afternoon and evening on sunday night. here's the forecast for some of those winds as we get toward. sunday at 6 o'clock in the morning. you can already see some of the areas shaded in purple. those winds gusting 40 plus miles per hour as that main front begins to really drive down south working across the bay area. look at the colors all the purples popping up. we're going to see gusts over 50 and likely some 60 mile an hour gust along the coastline, especially the coastal ranges that will
