The latest word on Saturday

This "Special Weather Statement" just out from the National Weather Service.
A cold storm system will move out of the Gulf of Alaska and into California this weekend... bringing rain... colder temperatures and snow in the mountains. Rain is expected to begin in the north San Francisco Bay region Saturday afternoon and then spread rapidly southward over most of the district Saturday night... along with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Rainfall is not expected to be excessive as this will be a quick moving storm with a limited moisture supply.

If correct, this suggests that we'll be OK for our scheduled ride on Saturday, although we'll want to make an effort to get back to Mountain View as expeditiously as possible.

Update: AccuWeather says Saturday afternoon could be windy, with west winds gusting as high as 30 mph. For those of us struggling to climb back up Highway 84 from the coast, this could actually be a very good thing.
