5:47 am
advisory for the north bay valleys and the coast watching right here the peninsula but right now visibility there is pretty good. but up in the north bay. it is reduced to a half mile here in santa rosa novato's better, but this will change from time to time and as we look at current numbers we're around 50 in alameda upper 40s in hayward 44 castro valley and along the shoreline upper 40s. here's some upper 30s from pleasanton to livermore. so certainly not as cold as it could be with the cloud cover that blanket of low clouds, but also patches of fog kind of keeping it clammy around parts of the north bay for several hours as we look at the 24-hour temperature change. we are milder this morning. here's our roof camera our forecast highlights then dense fog advisory for north bay valleys. coast through ten o'clock windy are much cooler as the winds kick up those onshore winds today, and then breezy to gusty winds for the next several days and as we get into that system by monday and tuesday, the snow
5:48 am
levels will be easily around 2,000 feet locally. here's a look at the high clouds and they're going to last throughout the morning. early afternoon hours and they get swept away those winds kicking up and here's a look at the presupped at our way. this is late monday. most of it is out over the ocean here, and we'll see a few pockets perhaps but the the trajectory of it not quite close enough that we're going to see the rain possibly more in the form of rain mixed with snow up towards lake county. maybe mount hamilton, but there could be a few showers out there. that's why we have it as a level one on our storm impact scale the scattered winter. hours anywhere from a couple hundreds to about a tenth of an inch in those snow levels 2500 feet down to two thousand. so accompanying that system will be the winds the three o'clock this afternoon 20 to 40 miles an hour along the coast and they're picking up inland as well by eight o'clock tonight. it's a breezy evening, and we've got some clear conditions so that will keep the temperatures up but look what happens as we
5:49 am
get into early tomorrow. the winds are really blowing fast and throughout the afternoon. at 35 miles an hour at the coast over 20 miles an hour in fremont nearly that in san jose and palo alto. so it's definitely a reality check with february standards coming back. here's a look at that scant amount of precip couple hundreds out there doing better though in the mountains with anywhere from about eight inches in donner to about 13 inches around southlake. so guys today if you're headed to the chinese new year festival boy, it is gonna be chilly with with temperatures just from the 50s there. the street fair low 60s in fremont 64 in san jose and the accuweather seven-day forecast. we've got presidents day chilly and windier a wintry mix perhaps on tuesday with their level 1 system overnight lows around freezer or even colder than that, wednesday and thursday morning finally getting a little bit warmer the end of the week into next weekend. all right, lisa. thank you this black history month. we are honoring the people and
