National Weather Service Has Issued a Fire Weather Watch for Vast Portions of Northern California; PG&E's Emergency Operations Center is Open and Monitoring the Situation
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - PG&E announced today that its meteorological and operations teams in its Emergency Operations Center continue to monitor a potentially widespread, strong and dry wind event Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon. The event will
impact northern, central, coastal and Bay Area counties across much of PG&E's service area.
In response to this anticipated event, the National Weather Service has issued a Fire Weather Watch for vast portions of Northern California for midweek. The National Interagency Fire Center's Geographic Area Coordination Center is also forecasting significant
fire potential across Northern California beginning on Wednesday of this week.
Due to the forecasted extreme weather conditions, PG&E is considering proactively turning off power for safety, and implementing a Public Safety Power Shutoff, across portions of approximately 30 northern, central, coastal and Bay Area counties.
Portions of counties that may be impacted include, but is not limited to: Alameda, Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Contra Costa, El Dorado, Glenn, Lake, Mariposa, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa
Cruz, Shasta, Sierra, Solano, Sonoma, Stanislaus, Tehama, Tuolumne, Yolo and Yuba.
The main period of weather risk is early Wednesday morning through Thursday midday. The dry, windy weather pattern is expected to reach from the northern portions of PG&E's service territory and down through the Sacramento Valley before spreading into the central
areas of the state including most of the Bay Area.
PG&E will continue to monitor weather conditions and will be providing additional information regarding affected area this afternoon.
While customers in high fire-threat areas are more likely to be affected by a Public Safety Power Shutoff event, any of PG&E's more than 5 million electric customers could have their power shut off because the energy system relies on power lines working together
to provide electricity across cities, counties and regions.
