(Update 9:30 a.m.) Those of you relying on public transit this morning aren't faring much better than drivers on the wet roadways. Muni is reporting "significant delays" for all inbound trains after a mechanical issue on a train at the Forrest Hill station essentially brought service to a screeching halt. There are surface shuttles for those of you trying to make it to downtown from West Portal. "We're trying to clear it as soon as possible," said Muni Spokesman Paul Rose.

(Original story 8:30 a.m.) That big rainstorm everyone's been waiting for has finally arrived -- and it's wet.
According to press reports, the wet, windy weather already knocked out the lights on both the Richmond-San Rafael and the Bay Bridges, triggering freeway spin-outs early Friday morning.
The lights on the Richmond Bridge were back on by 4:30 a.m. However, as of 6:30 a.m., the lights on the Bay Bridge were still out. A high-wind warning has also been issued for the entire span of the Bay Bridge.
So drive carefully today.
