8:19 pm
per hour. sustained winds with gusts upwards of 20 miles per hour or less. that trend going to continue for the 2nd half of your weekend as well. future wind gusts, though, on monday as that weak storm passes, going to be more of a wind maker. and here's why we're going to track winds along the coast, north bay and east bay valleys, gusting as high as 45 miles per hour or less. so far, the national weather service holding back on issuing any wind advisories. and if we do see the gusty east winds, they're mainly going to be in the highest peaks in the north bay mountains and east bay hills, but also fairly gusty for those of you in half moon bay, right along the san francisco peninsula coastline. so just a heads up there. radar for though, from now tracking very dry, clear conditions. temperatures for the most part, widespread 40's and 50's right now. we are tracking 53 degrees for san jose about 10 degrees warmer than napa in the mid 40's out there right now at 44 degrees and overnight lows. subfreezing temperatures for those of you in santa rosa. so bundle up
