An early season frontal system will push into the PacNW and N. CA this weekend. Light rainfall (generally ≤ 0.10”) will be most likely over the North Bay and potentially as far south as the Santa Cruz Mountains late Sat-Sun.
In wake of a passing weather that will bring light rainfall to the northern portions of the San Francisco Bay Area late Saturday into Sunday, dry offshore winds will develop Sunday night into Tuesday. These drying conditions and gusty offshore winds, in conjunction with near to record dry fuels across the interior, will result in an increased risk of critical fire weather conditions across the interior North Bay and East Bay hills and mountains above 1000 feet.
