This was happening in San Francisco area while Hurricane Irma's winds were shaking Orlando,
causing storm surge on Florida's northeast coast and millions were without power in Florida.


Meteorologists baffled by bizarre isolated winds
that whip San Francisco Bay Area


The gusts knocked some communities while others areas were completely still


Monday, September 11, 2017

Strong winds knock down trees, cause power outages in South Bay. Alex Savidge reports from Los Gatos
Media: KTVU

Meteorologists are baffled by strong wind gusts that ripped through concentrated pockets of the Bay Area early Monday morning, while other areas remained completely still.

The National Weather Service reports that a gust of 54 mph roared through Pebble Beach at 2:30 a.m., while only 10 minutes away in Monterey conditions remained completely calm

"We had a very unusual event happen overnight," says Charles Bell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service Bay Area. "We had isolated strong periods of winds. It's really remarkable. Usually wind storms are more widespread, while this wind occurred in concentrated pockets."

The first gusts roared through Pebble Beach and the southwesterly winds traveled north reaching up to 40 mph in Santa Cruz, up to 37 mph in Los Gatos and at the San Jose Airport.

The weather service recorded the last gust from the event at 3:30 a.m.; it was a 35 mph wind at the Golden Gate Bridge. Bell says there are anecdotal reports of high winds in parts of Marin.

"We left our window open because of heat and winds were so strong our interior doors were slamming shut and flying open!" Thais Derich of Mill Valley wrote on Facebook.

The winds knocked down trees and power lines. PG&E reported 11,000 customers without power at one point.

The event lasted about two hours."

Even the description of how the winds happened in isolated pockets sounds like hurricane winds.

Collapsing thunderstorms cause bizarre isolated winds that whip San Francisco Bay Area

 

Story update on Sept. 11 at 3 p.m.: Meteorologist Jan Null of Golden Gate Weather Services says Monday's early morning winds were the result of collapsing thunderstorms. As storm cells moved from Southern California into Monterey County, warm air rose and cold air fell. During the nighttime hours as temperatures cooled, the convective heating process that supports the air lower atmosphere stopped and the air fell to the ground.

"Experts" have to give some explanation... so I guess that's as good as any.
The irony is... that can also happen to hurricanes.

Speaking of hurricanes... Jose has to wait until Irma dissipates just like
Irma had to wait until Harvey dissipated. Then Jose is headed towards the
east coast... how close to the coast it might get is anyone's guess.

Jose has been looking strange lately. Not like a normal hurricane. It is blowing up like a big, evil cloud right now. It seems like its rotation got messed up.

Bizarre isolated wind gusts in the wee hours of Monday morning...
unusually hot during the day... huge lightning storm Monday night.


Bay Area sees 1,200 lightning strikes in rare September thunderstorms

Updated 9:45 am, Tuesday, September 12, 2017

" The National Weather Service reported Tuesday morning that 1,200 cloud-to-ground strikes and 5,800 in-cloud strikes hit the Bay Area Monday night.

[...]

" It started with strong wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph that roared through Monterey County and parts of the South Bay in the early morning hours. Later in the day, temperatures climbed to the 90s in San Jose and the high 80s in San Francisco.

Then came the rain, thunder, and lightning. The National Weather Service tweeted out that the Bay Area saw more than 800 lightning strikes and cloud flashes between noon and 5 p.m. "

I see that Jose's rotation is beginning to take shape again (this image updates regularly). I wonder if Florida will get the brunt of this one as well?

 

Update: The forecast path looks like this one might well miss us entirely.

Earlier the satellite cloud image was very strange.
There was a narrow straight-line cloud pattern from
the remains of Erma to Jose... like an umbilical cord.
I saw it first on the Weather Channel... then when I
went to NOAA to see the latest image, Jose looked like
a fetus... seriously !!

Earlier on the Weather Channel they showed one forecast path
that would bring Jose very close to North Carolina.

Ironically, some think a planetary alignment on Sept 23 symbolizes Rev 12...
which contains imagery of a woman giving birth.

Very interesting. This one looks more like a miss:

I see we have another possible hurricane in the making now, too. Tropical Depression Fifteen E.
