Fog Slows Sunday Holiday Travel - NBC Bay Area

Fog Slows Sunday Holiday Travel

Areas of locally dense fog with misty skies are starting off the morning around much of the Bay Area with visibilities down to less than a quarter mile in spots. We should see the low clouds turn over to hazy sunshine by early afternoon, however this will limit our hours of sunshine today that will mean cooler daytime highs vs. Saturday. Plan on highs mainly in the upper 50s to mid 60s around the Bay Area to finish the weekend.The fog will be our prime weather-related delay for holiday travelers with arrivals into SFO most likely being impacted early Monday morning. Dry conditions should hold on until at least Tuesday afternoon.Overnight Tuesday into Wednesday we ll see increasing southerly winds in the 15-35 mph range with locally higher gusts possible near the coastline and hilltops. Rain should begin spreading inland Wednesday morning at rates high enough to cause some ponding on roadways and localized flooding due to storm drains, gutters clogged by fallen leaves and other wind-blown items. Winds offshore will eventually push a fairly large long period swell to our coastline with high surf likely around Friday with some wave heights approaching 15-20 ft. Boaters and beachgoers should be especially vigilant as these conditions develop later in the week.Most of the rain should move through the North Bay for Thursday before another round of locally heavy rain and breezy conditions arrives on Friday into Saturday. Rain and wind should be on the decrease late Saturday into Sunday next weekend. Hope you are enjoying a fun, safe holiday weekend so far and enjoy your Sunday! Rob
