4:19 am
reasons why a decent start when it comes to the morning commute. northbound 101 gilroy, that commute looks pretty good from gilroy to san jose. there was a crash northbound 208 at 101. it does not appear to be causing too much slow traffic in the area even though it is there. the fire department was dispatched because there could be injuries this this crash. northbound 280 traffic is looking good otherwise getting up to highway 17. and at the bay bridge, it is light. so this first few minutes of the morning commute looking pretty good. let's bring in some steve paulson. >> speaking of looking pretty good, how do we do it at thismy- up. flash flood watch out not so much for today but for tonight
4:20 am
and tomorrow. today is mainly focused to the south but the next 24 to 36 hours will be quite active here. the wind will pick up as well. we do have a wind advisory. the models have backed off a teeny bit on that. high wind watch on thursday as a dopenning surface low moves in. that is kind of the key there. it looks like it is going right about over the bay area. highest gusts will be on the coast and also in the hills. could get some about 55 miles per hour. today, if you are to the north, you will probably be fine. if you are to the south, you may not be. that is where the folk you is on the peninsula. santa cruz mountains especially. for the next hour or two, if you are along highway 1, i would say san mateo coast, in the santa crews mountains, santa clara valley, could be in line for moderate to heavy rain. the system for tonight and tomorrow is right there. what is happening is it is coming around the ba od startin it is enhancing a lot of that moisture and some of that precipitation, some of that rain. it is all rain. it is a very mild system.
4:21 am
oakland is 59. half moon bay is 59, san jose. so this is a warm, warm system. the difference between our lows an highs today may be about three or four degrees. give me time to focus in on boulder creek and other areas. right now, it seems to be drifting south a little bit. for the next hour or so, that will be the focus of the heavy rain. that is until this system swings in late tonight an tomorrow. that will spread rain for everybody. could be focused more to the north. that is tonight and tomorrow. 60s on your temperatures here, very mild conditions. so we do have cloudy with some rain today and then developing rain and wind for your thursday, clearing out friday. fast-moving system on saturday will be much cooler and we'll get a break but you will notice it will feel chilly on sunday. >> thank you, steve. an act of kind's from a complete stranger coming up in the next half hour. the unusual move after a man's
