now it is going to be pushing over some warm waters. it would not be unheard of. we see the storm system really start to strengthen quite a bit. fact, just before making landfall possibly getting close to hurricane strength at least a sustained winds of 60 miles per hour could get even stronger than that. but right now the forecast track has really pushed further and further to the west. it's west of panama city. so keep our eyes on that. is that forecast track will likely continue to change between to now and really landfall maybe on monday. all in the pacific, we've got a monster storm. this one is churning about a very dangerous category 3. look at the eye on this storm system has a role to very symmetrical give you idea of just the raw power. you seem symmetrical like that. that means it along very well. everything is going perfectly in the atmosphere. me linda sustained winds of a 120 miles per hour moving west northwest away from ball away from
mexico. look at this those surfers love the sometimes, especially if they move a little bit to the north because that means we're going to get a nice southerly swell coming up from the south right now. looks like it will continue to move out. finally in this week are waters here, but more of a fish storm moving away from the coastline not going to bother anybody maybe just some boats passing by, but that is about it. so that is some good news. but hey, let's go to get away. forecast really quickly into the monterey bay you're looking at 60's for the most part, some patchy fog, some sunshine in the afternoon. southern california. we've got a mixed bag. you got some patchy fog that some 70's mid 70's in long beach about 85 in los angeles. a hot 92 in pasadena. if you are headed to the high country be prepared. you can see some hazy conditions. some of that smoke from the fires likely be found in the tahoe area will be on the warm side to 89 south lake tahoe about 92 degrees in truckee in about a 100 degrees in reno locally. we have some hot weather. but you have to find that in little place like the tri valley will see temperatures pushing near 100 degrees tomorrow. all the coach will be in the 60's lot of cars heading to the coast so and thanks, lawrence.
