FAIRFIELD — The National Weather Service issued a strong wind advisory Tuesday night that was scheduled to continue until Wednesday morning as coastal weather moves in to trump the recent high heat.
A strong Delta breeze was expected to bring windy conditions with winds from the southwest at 20 to 35 mph with gusts up to 47 mph. Those are strong enough to make driving high-profile vehicles difficult and to blow debris throughout the affected area.
The advisory was issued at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday. It was put in place until 5 a.m. Wednesday. It included areas typically affected by the Delta breeze, to include Fairfield and Suisun City.
Conditions are expected to remain breezy Wednesday with southwest winds between 21 and 26 mph during the day with gusts as high as 38 mph, and continued southwest winds of 22 to 25 mph during the night with gusts as high as 36 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
The temperature is also expected to drop significantly from a high of 87 Tuesday to a high of 73 Wednesday.
The cooling trend comes after highs of 104 both Sunday and Monday. The high Monday eclipsed the previous high for the day of 96, recorded in 2008.
