We're heading into the Red Flag Warning window. Be sure to have your bags packed and ready in case the evacuation status changes.
Via Daniel Swain: "Elevated convection has already developed offshore of Central Coast. WRF suggests this area of convection will expand/intensify as it moves N/NWward over Bay Area/NorCal later this evening.
Sometimes I post content targeted toward fellow meteorologists/scientists (such as this!). For those asking what this means: predicted dry lightning outbreak still on track for Bay Area & points northward this evening and overnight. Extent of lightning still unclear."
Via NWS Bay Area: "RED FLAG WARNING has been issued for the entire San Francisco Bay Area and Central Coast from 5 am Sunday to 5 pm MONDAY (updated) for Dry Lightning and Gusty Erratic Outflow Winds from Thunderstorms."
