PG&E said after the Diablo winds subside, they hope to restore power to customers affected by Friday night.
A Fire Weather Watch previously issued for parts of the Bay Area has since been upgraded to a Red Flag Warning currently in effect.
Officials said Diablo winds and dry conditions will make the potential for rapid spread of fires.
