5:18 pm
they are powerful to sweep you out. >> a good warning considering it's going to be beautiful the next couple of days. that's the key. if you get a high surf advisory paired with weather, that makes families and people want to go in the water head to the beach and things get dangerous and we'll see that kind of intersection tomorrow because the winds are going to change and it's going to get much warme on the weekend. current temperatures not warm. the onshore flow is still there. san jose sunshine and 63. it's 5 degrees cooler in san francisco. 58 for you. and santa rosa and live 62. one more time that high surf advisory through the evening tonight. now at 8:00 tomorrow it the waves don't magically go away. they just go under the advisory criteria. they will still be above average through the day tomorrow and likely into the weekend. but the swells will be running 13 to 18 feet which is rather high through 8:00 tomorrow morning gradually relaxing throughout the day tomorrow which happens to be friday heading toward the weekend. clear night tonight. we weren't warm during the day. we'll get chilly tonight around

40 in napa and santa rosa. livermore down to 43. san jose 45. redwood city 44. but the big change is the change in wind direction. the onshore flow that kept you chilly over the past couple of days is gone replaced by a north wind. a lot of the parts of the country a north wind would be air from canada which would be cold. for us it's one version of an offshore wind limiting the ocean influence so we'll be much milder starting friday. the 680 corridor, vallejo, benicia, martinez, concord, the winds coming out of the north and northeast, that will warm us up because we'll limit the cooling impact of the chilly pacific ocean. so the reason why the winds are changing, this ridge of high pressure is building. you see the clockwise building around it. as it gets closer the winds go north and then northeast, which will get us warm over the weekend. looking very active on the radar all of that staying north. blocks to the north by that building ridge of high pressure. so breezy this evening. mainly clear, chilly night but we'll be warmer tomorrow. the two warmest days will be saturday and sunday. the 7s will be replaced by 8s.
