you don't. you need to walk a dog on your first alert weather. we will have to find a tie into that. paul heggen is the dog eye on the weather staff. i am just hoping that that cat gets brought back home, the one that was taken down to long beach. we will follow up on that story. but juliet mentioned it, first alert weather. that's our renewed spotlight and wake making sure you stay well informed on any significant changes that happen in the weather, whether a couple of days out, or happening in the moment. sometimes you will see the banner go to blue to red. the red days are the significantly important days where we will make sure you are up to speed on what is going on. right now we don't have one. but i do have one thing i want to highlight, which is another offshore wind event, which is coming to the northbay mountains on tuesday reconsidering we have already
6:51 pm
seen some odd fire weather behavior for big sur. we then had a fire in the northbay mountains, we will talk more about the wind event in a second. mid to upper 50s right now. sunday morning, a little bit cloudier than today was. if you are an early riser on sunday morning, we are likely going to have more fog than we had today. you can see it on the futurecast, filling in the valleys of sonoma county. plenty in the central valley, and over towards fairfield. we had some today, but that looks like a bit more tomorrow. start thinking ahead for that. morning roads will be very typical. low to mid 30s for the colder inland valleys, but mid-40s in the heart of the bay. highs tomorrow will be exactly where they were today. the temperatures aren't budging. some of the other details do, in important ways. this shows you how the wind is going to turn on. it is a great way to visualize when and offshore wind event will happen. you not only see the colors

come about you see these streamlines showing you the wind is moving opposite him the way it normally does. that is offshore. the offshore wind tends to dry out the mountains, lower humidity, and on tuesday, low and behold, 50 mile per hour gusts on mount st. helena. this could extend into wednesday. you may not notice this a whole lot done at the lower elevations where you live. most of us it will be a 15 mile- per-hour breeze, but that is also typical of these. they gust over peaks and that is where fire concerns come into play. no advisories have been issued yet, but it is something to watch. what happened to the rain? no surprise here. if you look at the rain on futurecast, and we switch to where it will continue to rain for the next week and a half, let's just color in the map. this is total accumulated rainfall going all the way out
6:53 pm
to february 8th. we are in a big donut hole of nothing. if we look at this a different way, i will let the atmosphere and futurecast play forward and show her the big block of high pressure is. we already know we are likely not getting any rain through february 8. then we get to february 8th, there is a huge bull's-eye, a very big ridge of high pressure that starts to take hold, likely meaning even past february 8th, we will stay out of the rain business. for the next 7 days, there is nothing, but remember the headline will be the offshore wind in the mountains right here on tuesday and wednesday. the same story plays out for microclimates with the temperatures staying low to mid 60s. up next, the new local exhibit, looking back at
