layer. crystal clear conditions into the afternoon and winds will be a factor at times, especially on hillsides. but really not terribly windy day yesterday was just the opposite for southern california. we had a day with santa ana winds for areas like los angeles and surrounding areas enough. so that power was shut off for many of our neighbors down south that low pressure that brought those santa ana winds is beginning to exit the region and now we're in the midst of a drier air mass. and that's just going to be a stagnant one with high pressure building back in and meaning temperatures this weekend are going to rise a little bit further under what is some clear skies daytime highs today will peak in the 60's under sunshine. a few more clouds tonight and then clearing right back out tomorrow with more so highs in the 70's for your saturday and your sunday. both of these days are going to be beautiful for travels for shopping. whatever you want to be doing outside the weekend ahead, looks to be bringing some really good weather for it. as for today, 60's for san francisco and right along the coastline, mostly 60's along the bayshore to burlingame,
