4:47 am
of rain. futurecast sees it beautifully right there. we can take that and bring that across over the next hour. that's the main event for the rain. we are going to have much more blue sky today than yesterday. we can't rule out possibility of isolated pop up shower, maybe a stray thunderstorm. the odds go up tonight. a second impulse of energy will come through and by the evening, we've got isolated showers through marin and again into the east bay. that's tonight. another band of light rain. most of today will be blue sky. don't be surprised if late on your friday or early saturday you hear a rumble of thunder in the distance from one of the cells coming through. having said all that, it's not like we are getting a lot we can measure. it's only a couple hundredths of an inch of rain. it's really not significant at all unfortunately unless you get one of the cells right over you. it's 53 in san jose, 50 in
4:48 am
petaluma. we are not going to change a lot from here. we are going to the mid and upper 50s for daytime highs. here comes the main issue with today. our first alert forecast focused on wind, watch the screen light up into the afternoon. deeper shades of purple, look at the numbers, 40-mile an hour gusts through san mateo. 30 in the city. it's going to be stronger along the coast and anywhere that's along the bay shoreline. if you get inland, while it will be windy it shouldn't be that bad. san jose wind speeds top out near 30 by the peak time for wind and that's really around 4:00 in the afternoon. that's when winds will be the strongest. then they'll quickly die down. once we are past the 7:00 time frame the advisory will be allowed to expire. if we look at the wind advisory, we can see how that plays out. only the areas along the bay shoreline for the most part and along the coast. if you are along the bay shoreline, the north bay, san
4:49 am
pablo bay, vallejo is included too. we will get more snow in the sierra, perhaps another seven inches, maybe a half a foot by the time we finish with the storm cycle getting us through saturday. it will continue to snow up there all the way into saturday. in the seven-day forecast, a drop of rain for friday, clear it out for the weekend and much of next week. we'll probably still be a bit breezy and cool saturday but i don't see rain for saturday. i don't see rain for the rest of the seven-day forecast either. it will be sunny in the upper 60s with plenty sunshine and daytime highs in low 70s even by early next week for some warmer micro climates. we've got some rain now. are you seeing any impacts from that on the drive? i am seeing some slick surfaces out there, especially near the san mateo bridge. that's where we are seeing some wet weather. a live look here. we are not seeing travel times too bad, 14 minutes between 880
4:50 am
and 101. with the wet weather, things tend to get busier. it's still early so hopefully this will clear quickly. if you are headed towards peninsula side, give yourself a few extra minutes. as things get windier, be extra careful in a high profile vehicle. 880 near the colosseum, slick surfaces as well along the nimitz freeway. we are seeing that sheen off the freeways at the bay bridge. that usually happens when there is wet weather. it looks like your drive under ten minutes from the east bay into the san francisco area. oakland to the city, under ten minutes across the bridge. golden gate bridge is at an okay pace so r,no major issues or accidents. south bound 101 from richmond san rafael to the golden gate, a 15 minute commute. we have a couple accidents north bound 680 at the toll plaza, the benicia bridge. if you are taking 24, trying to
4:51 am
get onto 680, we have reports of a crash. it looks like this is blocking at least the fast lane. definitely slow out of walnut creek onto 24. other than that, altamont pass commute is not bad. it's moving okay near the dublin interchange. 580 towards the 680 connector. your travel time is still in the green. that's good news. east shore freeway highway 4 to the maze, a 15 minute ride. no delays on highway 4. things are quiet from antioch to 80. dealing with slick surfaces later on so be careful on the roadways. seems like a long time ago this warriors team had the best record in basketball. still second in the west. but the good times have not been rolling. when it rains, it pours. dubs were raining but luca was pouring it, a
