One of the largest storms within the last decade is predicted to hit the Bay Area Thursday, with winds as high as 50 miles per hour and possible flash floods. According to the National Weather Service, the winds are predicted to begin 10 p.m. Wednesday and continue until 10 p.m. the following night. Up to 10 inches of rain might flood the streets by the end of Thursday.

Most schools within the Berkeley, San Francisco, and Oakland districts are closing in anticipation of the storm in order to ensure student safety. All schools within the Acalanes Union High School District, however, currently plan on remaining open until further notice.
