12:48 pm
nice out there pretty mild and you take a live look at storm tracker so you can see we had just a few clouds that kind of piled up along the coast and they have pretty much relented as well. so nice for our watchers out on the coast. you finally got a little sunshine, too. i know that can get difficult and we get into this june gloom kind of thing that starts happening. so the low pressure system that cool this down that's moved over towards idaho. now there's another one in the gulf of alaska. that's going to continue to influence our weather over the next 24 hours. so still that onshore flow but notice you know it's much reduced, although again as i mentioned, we'll get a little push in the afternoon. but right now, you know 60 mph is the highest number i have on the map there at s f o. not bad, not bad at all. temperatures are going to be a touch warmer, but still very nice and you know, well below average, so it's gonna be a beautiful day to get outside and maybe take a walk and enjoy the great outdoors. and again compared to average santa rosa looking out for 72 today, which normally they'd be 80 will be low sixties in san francisco instead of mid sixties oakland, you'll be a little cool to there, but we'll hit the
12:49 pm
seventies and liver where that's 10. degrees below. average for you. liver more 72 70 in san jose. so here's what's happening. that low pressure system the one that's been influenced us influencing us now tracking away that's what brought us a few of the coastal clouds this morning. and that's what we'll also continue to kind of kick in a little bit of that breeze. and then the second system is going to roll in as we get into tomorrow and tomorrow we'll kind of be a repeat of today only add a few clouds as this system comes through now, i wish that i could say we're going to get some rain, northern california extreme northern california will get some rain as you look at future cast. you can see eureka. likely uko will see a little bit of rain, but it doesn't really hold together enough to give us anything significant at best. i think the sonoma county coastline are this point north might get. i know a shower or two, maybe a little sprinkle, but that's about it. so tomorrow pretty good looking day two. we're going to continue the warm up as we head towards the weekend on saturday. we will have clouds with us. we'll pull back a little sunday into monday, but what you don't see on the map is, by the time we get to next wednesday, thursday, it looks like we're going to have high
