High wind and surf advisories issued for Bay Area on holiday weekend

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A Wind Advisory will go into effect for the entire Bay Area beginning at 10 p.m. Sunday as offshore winds develop.

Winds out of the north will gust over 35 mph at times. This could lead to downed trees, downed power lines and isolated power outages.

ACCUWEATHER FORECAST: Gusty winds, Wind Advisory in effect in Bay Area Sunday night

Starting at 4 p.m. Monday, a High Wind Warning will begin in the North Bay and East Bay Hills, as well as the Santa Cruz Mountains, as winds continue to strengthen. Along our ridge tops, we could see wind gusts 60 to 70 mph at times through Tuesday morning.



PG&E says a power shutoff is not planned for the Bay Area "due to recent rains, relatively high humidity levels and the lack of any Red Flag Warnings in the Bay Area."

But a PSPS could affect about 21,000 customers Monday night in Calaveras, Fresno, Kern, Madera, Mariposa, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare and Tuolumne counties. The agency says high winds and dry conditions increase the risk of damage to the electric system.

Along with the gusty weather, we are still watching our waves as a High Surf Advisory remains in effect until 3 p.m. on Monday along our coast. Breakers anywhere between 18'-22' and strong rip currents and sneaker waves are possible.
