While the fog is all the way up here, which makes for rather drippy, wet, and cold conditions, there is a red-flag warning out for some areas per this report from NOAA:
“FIRE WEATHER…AS OF 2:00 AM TUESDAY…RED FLAG WARNING WAS ISSUED FOR LATE TUESDAY INTO THURSDAY MORNING. CONDITIONS WARRANT A RED FLAG FOR THE NORTH AND EAST BAY HILLS. HUMIDITIES WILL LOWER DURING THIS TIME. THE PERIOD OF STRONGEST SUSTAINED WINDS IN THE 15 TO 30 MPH RANGE WITH GUSTS 35 TO 40 MPH LOOKS TO OCCUR FROM ABOUT 3 AM WEDS THROUGH MIDDAY WEDS. WINDS WILL EASE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON BUT THEN VERY DRY AIR WILL FILTER IN WEDS NIGHT THROUGH EARLY THURSDAY MORNING. WINDS WILL BE MUCH LIGHTER WEDS NIGHT BUT RH VALUES WILL LIKELY NOT RECOVER AT ALL…STAYING WELL UNDER 30 PERCENT.
WE ARE AWARE OF THE GREEN GRASS THAT HAS CROPPED UP BUT ALL LAND MANAGEMENT AGENCIES REPORT CONCERN THAT FIRE WILL INDEED SPREAD THROUGH THE BRUSH AND OTHER DEAD FUELS WHILE LIVE FUELS HAVE NOT YET TAKEN ON MOISTURE. SO BOTH THE FUELS AND METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE MET.”
Also, Debbie sent me some photos of the Anderson Peak project to bury all the PG&E lines for a couple of miles in order to safeguard the condors. Unfortunately, my internet is not cooperating in allowing me to upload photos, at the moment.
One thought on “Weather conditions”
Thanks, Kate. We’re getting our almost first days of fog all summer, kind of a shock after endless sun. Dead quiet winds here for days, and sweetly warm. Keeps feeling like it’s about to rain and doesn’t.
