thinking about it. yesterday, it was getting warm out there. that late day sun. most of us in the 60's today. we will be a little bit cooler in some spots. we will not notice the change. here is live doppler 7 where a ridge of high pressure does not want to get out of town as we look at current numbers. 34 in livermore. 31 santa rosa. with temperatures all in the 30's here for the lto, the coast is the mildest s. as we look compared to yesterday, the north and south end of the day most dramatic cooling from santa rosa. it will stay that way as we get through sunrise. that is at about 7:15. looking at san francisco, nice out there this morning with temperatures in the upper 40's

to near 50's. patchy frost around the valleys. sunny and seasonal today with no sign of rain. a couple of systems will move to the north and bring us some wind and we could see a few sprinkles but it is the offshore winds that we will be watching for today. really nothing to write home about but as we get into monday morning, you will notice they begin to get a little bit faster along the coast. look what happens monday night. we are looking at wind gusts in the hills from 20 to 30 miles an hour and this will translate into some very gusty winds in the sierra nevada. they are looking at winds potentially in the highest peaks at 70 miles an hour. look what happens at 3:00 in the afternoon on tuesday. we could be under a north. fairfield up to 40 miles an hour. elsewhere, widespread from 25 to 30 miles an hour. this is tuesday and this will take us into wednesday. stopping late tuesday where the wind still continue to gust the coast over 40 miles an hour.
5:50 am
this is what is on tap a system to the north of us moves overhead and clips the eastern side of california. we will see this again as we get into late in the workweek but we will probably get into a warming trend as well. average highs right where we should be. upper 50's to the low 60 today. temperatures along the coastline in the upper 50's with a return to an onshore flow. 60 in oakland. 62 in fremont. air quality has been moderate at times and temperatures will not change too much but it will be that offshore wind that we will be watching. the accuweather 7 day forecast, some fog in the north bay. rocky temperatures in the valleys and increasing clouds on monday leading us to gusty winds tuesday and wednesday. after that passes, temperatures should warm up a little bit into next weekend and are rainfall projections could be dry into mid-february. not great. liz: thank you.
