The National Weather Service issued a warning on Monday of a marginal threat of thunderstorms in California‘s SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA Bay Area early Tuesday, accompanied by a warming trend later in the week.

“The prospect of thunderstorms is spotty at best,” the elements service said in a statement on Monday afternoon. “Confidence is low because the risk may only skirt the periphery of the East and North Bay regions. However, some hi-resolution models show a few thunderstorms could pop-up within East & North Bay and given the fuels have become dry, any strike could mean a fire start.”

The opportunity for thunderstorms comes as monsoonal moisture form the desert Southwest and Southern California climbs northward.

The window for storm activity in the Bay Area is between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. Tuesday. Locally gusty winds, lightning and fire starts are possible, however the chances for lightning stand of them costing only 10%, the elements service said.

Lightning strikes are likely at elevations above 4,000 feet and the storms are anticipated to be moving slow enoughthat they might provide some rain because they pass.

Thursday marks the beginning of a warming style that is likely to continue in to the weekend. The elements service said you will have moderate heat risk for eastern regions of Napa County and the East Bay, portions of the Santa Clara Valley, and the southern 1 / 2 of San Benito and Monterey counties. Afternoon highs in these areas could reachthe upper 90s.
