More NW Gusts to Continue Through Saturday

It appears that we have a fairly stable and big high pressure (1027 mb) system is sitting right smack in the middle of Pacific with no sign of leaving the area. Combined with the wind that blowing out of this system and our usual local thermal gradient is causing a very tight pressure gradient, causing very significant amount of NW winds up to 40 knots at some locations in the Bay Area. In HMB, it is blowing at 20 knots range consistently. Unless this pattern changes and the High would move out of the area, we will continue to have this condition. I will continue to watch the configuration for the weekend, but chance of good surf this weekend continues to look bleak.
