Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the San Francisco Bay Area and...CORRECTED
Central California Coast
National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area
536 AM PST Fri Dec 15 2017

...Gusty northerly winds will combine with very low humidity
values Friday evening through Sunday morning...

...Red Flag Warning in effect from 10 pm Friday evening through
10 am Sunday morning for gusty winds and low humidity values for
fire weather zones 507, 511, 512, 517, and 518...

.DISCUSSION...An upper level high pressure area over California
will move west out over the eastern Pacific late this week allowing
a mainly dry cold front and upper level trough to move southeast
across the district Friday night into early Saturday morning. A
red flag warning is in effect Friday evening through Sunday
morning due to gusty northerly winds combining with very low
humidity values over the hills and mountains in the wake of this
front. Dry weather then continues this weekend with generally poor
recoveries in the mountains. It`s a low confidence forecast at
this point, but a dry pattern may turn to a wet weather pattern by
the middle of next week.

Note : All winds are 20-foot Winds Unless otherwise specified.
Thunderstorms imply strong, gusty and erratic winds.
