AccuWeather Forecast: Sunny skies for Father's Day
ABC7 News Weather Anchor Spencer Christian has your AccuWeather forecast for Saturday.

Takeaway of the Day

Today has been sunny and mild to warm-with no excessive heat-but fire danger is increasing across the Bay Area because of a pattern of increasing wind gusts combined with dangerously low humidity. As this pattern persists, the Bay Area's Fire Weather Index will indicate generally moderate to high fire risk.

RED FLAG WARNING for a portion of Lake, Sonoma and Napa counties 11 p.m. on Saturday to 8 p.m. on Monday below 2,000 feet.

Winds will be drier with a shift from onshore to offshore with gusts 30-40 mph.

Relative humidity will drop making for elevated fire concerns.

The Look Ahead

I'll begin by pointing out that tomorrow-Father's Day-will be a beautiful day, with sunny skies and a mild to warm temperature range. In addition to that good news, however, we should all bear in mind the increased fire danger that the Bay Area will experience over the next two days.

During that time, relative humidity will be exceedingly low-at times lower than 20%-and we will have a very windy pattern, producing gusts ranging from 25 to 45 miles per hour. Also, adjacent to the Bay Area, a RED FLAG WARNING for high fire danger will be in effect in the Northern Sacramento Valley plus Lake County from 11 p.m. tonight to 8 p.m. Monday.
