As the winds weaken aloft, gravity will take over as the primary vertical transport of the smoke.
Suspended smoke will descend closer to the surface and could lead to darker skies and worsening air quality today. This is beyond the scope of our models so we rely on your reports!

We have CANCELLED the Red Flag Warning.
Stay weather aware as weak cells are still over the North Bay; however, most moisture has moved north of our area and instability has decreased giving us confidence to let the warning expire early.
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. #cawx #cafire https://t.co/3qo57XlGMd
⚠️Dry t-storms will be possible again Sun - Tue. Any t-storms that occur will bring the potential for new fire starts, so a Fire Weather Watch has been issued. Remember, always have an emergency plan during fire season in case a fire starts near you. readyforwildfire.org.. #CAwx https://t.co/zmWwsj66fu

Notice the other regional cams around the North Bay show a similar view.
When a dog's name is Doppler, you know he is gonna stop by for a visit. Here he is checking out the doppler radar interface. We might have to utilize it tomorrow as we monitor a slight chance for thunderstorms. 🐶⚡️ #CAwx https://t.co/UHLLKbxlvB
No tsunami threat is expected with this #earthquake.
Wondering where this moisture is coming from bringing us these thunderstorms? Check out this GOES-17 infrared imagery and follow the moisture back to Tropical Storm Fausto
Reminder: AQI sensors focus on smaller particulates such as PM10/PM2.5. Some ash falling is larger than PM10 (width of human hair) & may not be reflected in AQI. Finer particulates remain suspended while larger fall.
Take precautions to protect your lungs such as wearing a mask.
As of 245pm, San Francisco downtown hit 100F!
This crushes the previous record of 92 set in 1904. The record was initially broken at around 1145am this morning.
The current observation is down to 95F, so the afternoon sea breeze may be bringing some slight cooling.

An @NWS_IMET_OPS on the #CZULightingComplex grabbed this📽️up Hwy1 today. This is extremely rare to see these plants burn. Volume up, it made our jaws drop.
There was a 2.5 quake near Pleasant Hill at 10:23 pm that preceded the 4.5 quake.

11AM GOES17 geocolor imagery shows a very thick multilevel smoke deck over much of California.
This smoke is filtering the incoming energy from the sun, causing much cooler temperatures and dark dreary red-shifted skies across many areas.
Time lapse of the #KincadeFire Very active fire behavior fueled by strong and gusty winds. Notice the cam is shaking too. View is from Mt St Helena #cawx #cafire https://t.co/gwqXG9CzYM
Numerous fires have broken out across the region since the lightning event a couple of day ago. Below is a snapshot of the fires currently burning in our area as well as a new start that was just detected along the Big Sur coast. #cawx #CAfires https://t.co/36huYclMLE
Check out the rope cloud stretching hundreds of miles over the Eastern Pacific. Rope clouds can be used to detect the cold front position. #cawx #BombCyclone https://t.co/zxL13JjnvN
Unprecedented amount of smoke in the atmosphere as a record number of acres burn across California & the West. From space, you can't even see @KarlTheFog & the marine layer as the smoke extends well out over the Pacific. #CAwx #CAFires #Smoke #BayArea @CAL_FIRE @NOAASatellites https://t.co/hP77TlsDCb
