First Diablo winds of the season may arrive in Bay Area this weekend
The first Diablo winds of the season could arrive in the Bay Area beginning Sunday night and into Monday morning — though they’re unlikely to be as strong as in years past, meteorologists said. The timeline for this year’s dry, offshore winds has come about two weeks earlier than expected, said Warren Blier, science officer for the National Weather Service. The winds — which can spread fires and smoke in new directions — typically start around the fall and come and go irregularly through the spring.
