Redwood City is in for a wet, windy night, with rain expected to continue through the week.

Wind gusts will accompany rain that is set to hit Tuesday evening, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a Wind Advisory that will be in effect from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. Wednesday. 

Southerly winds will increase during the night, with gusts of up to 36 mph possible, and meteorologists forecast a 90% chance of showers. Redwood City is expecting less than tenth of an inch of rain, while the rest of the Bay Area could see as much as 1.5 inches in some places, forecasters said.

The heaviest rain is expected to move through the region quickly, although showers will linger in the morning hours. More rain is expected over the next few days, with clouds lingering through the weekend, according to the weather service.

Sunday and Monday could bring more rainfall, continuing to bring much-needed moisture to a region experiencing “extreme” drought conditions, in a state ravaged by months of historic wildfire.

The weather service has warned of especially slippery roads in the Bay Area, as well as threats of flooding in areas burned by recent wildfires.
