Hi Gang,

The upper trough at about 18,000 ft. feet that brought great Sherman Island winds the last several days has pinched off into a near Cut-Off Low. Mid day this 1100 mile wide puppy is centered directly over the Bay Area. With low pressure over us the winds will be weak except at a few locales noted in the forecast.

Usually, a Cut-Off Low directly over us would justify your action since Cut-Off Lows usually wobble about overhead for days. But since this one is still partially connected to the W. to E. 500 mb winds I expect it to be long gone by noon tomorrow allowing the North Pacific High's surface NW winds to reach sites at or very near the coast.

The Delta has been pretty good through the last week and San Luis Res has
had wind though its been gusty.
Did about 4 days at San Luis in the last week.
Looks like its been gusty everywhere but the Delta when its
been good.
