>> i said yes. we do have the rain out there. winds are really ramping up as well. good evening, everybody. take a look at the bay bridge. it looks a little bit on the cloudy side out there. it's hard to tell, because it is dark. temperature-wise, into the 50's. but when you factor in the gusty winds, it feels awfully raw outside. in fact, right now, this is looking out towards the 586-80 corridor, with increasing winds out of the southwest at 16. gusts have been up to 24. wet and breezy to downright windy. tomorrow, sunny and breezy. the extended forecast calls for the warmest day of the workweek on wednesday. but first, we've gotta get through the winds. we do have a wind advisory in effect until 8:00 tomorrow night for just about the entire bay area, minus the santa clara valley. this is why. watch pacifica. the winds ramping up to 52-mile-
an-hour gusts right before the morning commute. 36-mile-an-hour gusts in gilroy. stronger than that towards the delta. it's going to be breezy to downright windy all day long. the evening commute, both hands on the steering wheel, going over our local bridges. hercules, back through concord, clayton, walnut creek as well. to the north, we have pockets of pretty moderate to heavy downpours in between petaluma and in novato. and upstream, plenty of rain showers as welch this is now converting over to snow in the high sierra and that is where we have a winter weather advisory in effect for one to three inches of snow, down to 4500 feet. up to eight inches above 7,000 feet. gusty winds, all associated with this right here. watch as it backs up against the northwestern quadrant of the state of california.
so as high pressure builds in, we have what we refer to as a pressure gradient. here's your futurecast. the heaviest rain in the overnight hours. by tomorrow morning's commute, no need for that umbrella. we will have ample sunshine. tonight's lows into the 40's. tomorrow's daytime highs, just a couple of degrees warmer than today, from the 50's to the mid 60's. but, again, the northwesterly, 20 to 30 miles per hour. tuesday, less win. wednesday is your warmest day. then we'll hold steady in the 60's and 70's from thursday all the way to sunday. >> a little bit of rough going tonight. >> and that 80 right there in the middle of the week, schedule your tee time. >> thank you. a birthday celebration that could make even the youngest
