it's also coming in on the 19th anniversary of the strongest wind gusts, december 11th, 1995. 103 miles an hour at angel island. some of you may remember that. we're not expecting anything like that. but it does look like a decent system. first we have to deal with some of that tule fog out in the valley. fog has developed overnight because of the recent rain. boy, did the hills turn green like ireland or what? just like that. foggy, mostly cloudy, light rain to the north. it looks like everything is staying north towards mendocino county, lake rain. nep rain for us will be light. there could be a little bit. you can see the heaviest amounts northward. not too much to the south. a lot of cloud cover. mostly cloudy day. 50s on your temps. a little chill for some. if you are stuck inspect fog, can't see across the street, the 20s up in the mountains and
