rain and wind moving through the bay area. so, be sure to giver yourself extra time getting home. then, fast forwarding to tomorrow around midday, scattered showers, mostly cloudy. the front will move its way out of our area, but not for long. because storm number two will be moving in friday, early morning a lot of yellow on the radar. another round of storms following shortly behind that one. tomorrow, we do have a wind advisory throughout the entire bay area. some pretty strong winds. out of the south. 30 to 45 miles an hour. and then, gusts up to 60 miles an hour. so, we need to keep an eye on our power lines and the trees because the ground is saturated and those could easily blow over. your headlines. cloudy tonight with sprinkles. a few showers wednesday morning with the commute. and wind and rain is going to strengthen through the day into the afternoon. the highs pretty much everywhere in the low to mid 50s . santa rosa, pacifica. pretty much across the board. our seven day picks up tomorrow
with wind and rain followed by showers on thursday. then storm 2.0 will come in on friday. followed by a brief dry spell on saturday. if you are going to do something outside, saturday is the day to do it. and storm three will be moving in on sunday with some showers on monday. and then, tuesday is when we will see the sunshine again drying out around the middle of next week. so pretty much just put that umbrella in your car and keep it there. >> we got used to it. we are pros now. after donald trump's inauguration, he will have fine dining. bay area specialties are on the menu. >> and here are tonight's guest on the late show with stephen colbert. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
lepe's foods is a locally owned family company, here in santa rosa. as a small business, we're always looking to save money, and pg&e was able to help us. i help the small businesses save money and energy. it feels great. we looked at their lighting, their refrigeration system, and with just those two small measures, they were able to save a good amount of money. i was shocked. i couldn't believe that i could save $1,500 a month. with the savings that we get from pg&e, we're able to pass it on to our customers. it's pretty awesome. learn how your business can save at pge.com/businessenergycheckup. together, we're building a better california.
>> all right, so who's the coach? >> welshing i'm not going to say who on the set. but somebody on the set was just wondering if the 49ers head coach is single because he's cute. the new head coach. seahawk defensive line coach and former raider coach tom flores removed himself from consider race for the 49ers opener. and that left one man standing. and their head coaching search will go to falcons offensive coordinator kyle shanahan. is he that good looking? he will accept san francisco's offer once atlanta's season is
over. well, the 49ers coaching search appear to be coming to an end after more than two weeks. cal introduced their new head coach, just nine days after firing sonny. justin wilcox will become the 34th head coach in cal history. he was the bearing linebackerrer coach from 2003 to 2005. his father is former 49er linebacker dave wilcox who was selected to the hall of fame in 2000, 26 years after retiring. >> before he was hall of fame, he was a hall of farmer. that is how i knew him. he was a farmer who played football in the past. in the year 2000 after i was out of college, a bunch of you said oh, now he is good enough to be a hall of famer and his life changed which is a little bizarre. we should probably have a class ton that. >> today's ground breaking for the warriors new arena in san francisco was a pretty formal i
vent except for head coach steve kerr who went with a much more casual attire. >> i'm a southern californian by nature. you may have been able to tell by my attire. somebody asked me why i didn't get dressed up. i said i actually did. [ laughter ] there are vans and then there are dress vans. so i wore my dress vans. >> steve kerr is fantastic. but, i tell you what, the warriors will build. those guys know what they are doing. they will build the nicest nba arena in america. >> looks beautiful. >> yeah. no. get ready for psls . i'm just telling you. but, i do have sympathy for the folks in oakland. as i had sympathy for the 49er fans at candlestick park. it is hard to part with your team. and some fans are not going to be able to afford it. unfortunately. >> shanahan.
a taped sports piece from dennis. >> no,ly be live. >> but it will be a wet commute. bring your umbrella. captioning s y cbs >> it's "the late show with stephen colbert." tonight, stephen welcomes billy eichner. mel b. and gilbert godfried. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now, live on tape from the ed sullivan theater in new york city, it's stephen colbert!
