50s and 60s in the area right now. we have an ocean influence impacting us even in the east bay today. half moon bay visibility down to a third of a mile. it's going to be tough to drive near there. petaluma less than a mile. santa rosa dropped down to a third of a mile. so all these locations could be pretty dangerous. so keep a distance between you and the car in front of you. west winds in downtown san francisco at 21 miles per hour sustained winds continuous winds out of the west. that's what's pushing that cloud coverage way out east. and that's why a lot of people are waking up to that this morning. vallejo now ten-mile-per-hour winds, napa up to 16. fairfield at 18. a little breezier for some of the east bay hills, as well. here's the afternoon highs today. upper 50s at the coast, temperatures won't go up much.

south bay mid-70s possible east like antioch and pittsburg. 5 to 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. low 60s for sausalito and san francisco. cool in mill valley upper 60s. low to mid-70s in the north bay. here's why we are dealing with the west wind and cool coastal conditions because there's a ridge of high pressure to the south. a low system to the north. and basically this creates a wind alley so we are getting that west wind coming through but all of that is going to shift direction. so from the west winds that onshore breeze then we are going to start to see an offshore breeze. look at this system that's going to drop down into nevada and when that gets there, friday into saturday, we are going to start to see our wind direction change and that's what's going to bring us that drier air and also warmer conditions. there's a high wind watch friday night through saturday morning for the north and east bay hills gusts up to 50 miles per hour so take precautions now. here's the seven-day forecast.
