coast. nice unclear part of the reason for that is actually a pretty strong wind from the north. that's pushing any fog way away from the coastline this morning. podcast is pretty empty visibility is at its max across the bay futurecast wind gust showing you exactly why that is. it's a strong northerly winds keeping fog away from the coast and keeping things pretty dry and warm across the bay today. winds will be most significant for northern neighbors, especially in the mountains of the north bay and wind advisories will expire today at 10:00am after which point still breezy at times but not near as windy as we are to start this morning. radar shows you those clear skies as well. no chances of rainfall ahead today. and even though a lot of our sensors are out of here on your temperature map. you can see that most of the day is hanging out in the 40's with san francisco at 52 and in parts of the north bay actually down in the 30's like petaluma nevado each at 37 degrees right now. i'm talking the rest of your forecast and what to expect as we work our way into the middle of the week all still to come, reyna.
