San Mateo Braces for Rainy, Windy Weather

A wind advisory was in effect for the San Mateo Bridge as of Tuesday morning.

Rainy days are in store for Bay Area residents as a series of storms are expected to pass through the region this week.

Periods of heavy rain and strong winds are expected as storms sweep through the area "one on the heels of the other," National Weather Service forecaster Diana Henderson said.

Just after midnight, a wind advisory went into effect for the San Mateo Bridge.

Henderson said parts of the North Bay may receive more rain than the rest of the region, "but when all is said and done, everybody's going to get wet."

With heavy rains come slippery road conditions, and authorities are reminding drivers to use caution.

"Slow down," Henderson warned. "St. Peter can wait."

San Mateo residents can collect in the city with proof of residency.
