Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the San Francisco Bay Area and
Central California Coast
National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area
332 PM PST Fri Feb 16 2018

NOTE: THIS IS A RETRANSMISSION OF YESTERDAYS AFTERNOON FORECAST... IT IS NOT
AN UPDATE. THE FORECAST IS ISSUED ONCE DAILY BY 330 PM IN THE LOW SEASON

...COLD AND BLUSTERY CONDITIONS DEVELOPING BY LATE IN THE
WEEKEND...

.DISCUSSION...A dry airmass will remain over the district through
Saturday, with poor relative humidity recoveries expected in the
hills once again tonight. Relative humidity values will increase
Saturday night as onshore flow develops ahead of a cold system
dropping in from the north. That system will generate cold and
blustery conditions across the district from late Saturday night
through Monday. In addition, scattered light showers are possible
from late Sunday through Monday with snow levels as low as 1000
feet. Cold weather will continue through next week with widespread
overnight lows at or below freezing expected for inland areas
on Monday night and Tuesday night.


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