HEATING up!

Air Quality Report (As of 7:00AM)
Good

High pressure will continue to build in for the weekend with much warmer, dryer weather. Fire danger will also be on the increase.

*Heat Advisory* IN EFFECT 11 AM SUNDAY THROUGH 7 PM MONDAY.

-High temperatures are forecast to range from 15 to 25
degrees above normal Sunday and Monday. Inland locations are
forecast to range in the mid 90s to low 100s, locally to mid
100s in the hottest spots. Bayshore locations including Oakland
and San Francisco are forecast to range in the 90s to around
100.

-Majority of the San Francisco Bay Area & The Santa Cruz Mtns

-Increased risk of heat related illnesses such as heat
exhaustion and heat stroke can occur due to prolonged exposure
to hot temperatures. People most vulnerable include those who
spend extended periods outdoors, those without air conditioning,
young children, the elderly, and those with chronic illness.

-Monday will be hotter than Sunday. Offshore
winds will suppress the sea breeze and bring warm to hot
conditions closer than usual to the coast, and in addition, may
push wildfire smoke from the August and Red Salmon fires back
into the area. Limited relief near the coast with sharp
temperature changes only a few miles inland. Bayshore
locations, especially those north of the San Mateo Bridge, will
be the most impacted by the offshore flow during this heat
event. Onshore flow is expected to begin returning to the coast
later Monday but may not arrive until peak heating has already
occurred.

*RED FLAG WARNING*
The National Weather Service in Monterey has issued a Fire Weather Watch for the Diablo Range in Santa Clara County from Saturday morning through Monday night.

Northeast winds 10 to 20 mph on Saturday will increase Saturday night into Sunday morning with frequent gusts 40 to 50 mph.

Lowering humidity on Saturday to less than 25% with little or no humidity recovery Saturday night. RH values staying steady from 10-20% Sunday into early next week.
