bay temperatures also in the mid- to upper 70s. ridge of high pressure to the south is moving further south and then this low is going to dip down. it's not going to bring us rain or even cloud coverage but it will bring us drier warmer weather and here's why that happens. it's actually moving its way towards idaho heading down into utah and parts of nevada. we could see a few showers across the sierra friday night into saturday afternoon because of that system. but what it will also do is shift our wind direction. right now we see those west winds coming from the coast. we are going to start to get winds coming in from the north- northeast direction and that's going to make all the difference. that's why the weather service is issuing this wind advisory for friday evening into saturday morning. some damaging offshore winds potential for that. humidity levels will also be dropping. it will feel dry out there. so a lot of the lush greenland we're seeing could dry up because of this. gusts 55 miles per hour. downed trees, power lines, all a possibility. this is only for areas that are above 1,000 feet in elevation. so that's going to happen friday, saturday. you will notice in the seven- day forecast those
