SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco Bay Area commuters can expect a soggy drive home Wednesday.

The National Weather Service says that winds will increase throughout the day with rains starting mid-afternoon. Forecaster Steve Anderson in the service’s Monterey office says a wind advisory is in place until 7 p.m. tonight.

A three-day heat wave has delighted and perplexed people throughout drought-parched California, but a cold front moving in from Oregon should remind residents that it’s still winter.

The system brings rain with most places seeing a quarter-inch to a half-inch as it moves through the region Wednesday and Thursday. It is expected to drop between 1 and 2 feet of new snow in California’s highest peaks.

The weekend in San Francisco is expected to be dry and sunny.
