Synopsis
Breezy offshore winds will bring sunny and mild weather for Thanksgiving Day. Temperatures will quickly cool tonight as a drier airmass settles over the region and lighter offshore winds continue. High pressure builds Friday through the weekend with sunny and mild days followed by clear and cool nights. Longer range forecast into next week looks to remain dry.

as of 01:46pm PST Thursday...Outside of a few cumulus clouds in the mountains it's hard to find a cloud in the entire state of California. Dry offshore flow has resulted in sunny skies and slightly above normal temperatures this Thanksgiving afternoon. Speaking of offshore flow, the SFO-WMC gradient is over -6mb, which is still resulting in gusty winds in hills/mts. Winds are peaking at 35-50 mph - or just a bit down from this morning. Models continue to advertise another burst of stronger offshore winds again this evening and early tonight (03-09Z), especially the E and N Bay higher terrain. Mt St Helena could see a gust up to 60 mph. It goes without saying, but the gusty NE winds will also lower humidity this evening and tonight with poor recoveries. As mentioned on several discussion now, if it were not for the recent rains fire weather concerns would be a lot greater. Should still be vigilant nonetheless.

Winds drop off abrupartly tomorrow as the offshore gradient weakens. Mostly clear skies with mild afternoons and colder overnight will be the story for Friday into the weekend. Interior valleys will likely see some patchy frost with lows in the the 30s, maybe even a few upper 20s, but not cold enough for a freeze warning.

High pressure over the region will act like a buffer keeping the storm track mainly to the north. There was some hope for rain next Monday/Tuesday, but model trends of late have been dry. Current forecast will remain dry.

Longer range outlook continues to show a low pressure system dropping southward off the coast the middle of next week, but no rain for the Bay Area.
