Those of you with plans to sunbathe, surf or be outside for any extended period tomorrow might want to begin making alternate arrangements. A large storm, the remains of a typhoon that hit Japan, is headed toward the Bay Area.

Officials are warning that the storm may knock out power in some areas and could cause mudslides in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory from 2 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday for San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin, Monterey, Contra Costa, Napa, Sonoma, Santa Clara and Alameda counties. Wind speeds could reach 35 to 50 miles per hour.

Heavy rain is also expected, and sandbags are available at several locations throughout the Bay.

Stay safe out there.
