wildlife. >> reporter: the land trust secured $10 million for the property rights and voter approved measure d funding helps pay for the wildlife tunnel. >> it's a great victory. fixing older infrastructure for the benefit of wildlife is just a smart thing to do. >> reporter: the land trust has plans for another wildlife tunnel at a trouble spot on highway 101. >> this will literally be the gateway for the pumas. >> reporter: they also unveiled a virtual reality experience of what it will be like when the crossing is completed. >> you were sitting on a ledge with an invisibility shield and the animals marched by you. that's why you were always turning to your right. noodle fest is wrapping up in san francisco a6 aafter a

feel this, and maybe it's not as pleasant to be outside as tomorrow will be. tomorrow will be different. i'll show you why in a second. mid-60s out there now temperature-wise. if you look at the current wind speeds, classic on shore, strongest at the coast and through the gaps and at the bay shore. a lot more red on here through 9:00. but watch how things totally reverse. in the overnight hours we switch from a strong on shore flow to moderate offshore. watch the north bay mountains light up in the classic pattern that spotlights the ridges. you can see the wind coming from the central valley and rushing over the ridge stops. now complete opposite direction to start tomorrow. tomorrow will be noticeably calmer. and when you get offshore winds like this, the
temperatures go up. starting off in the mid-40s, but the daytime highs tomorrow are 5 to 7 degrees warmer than today. so it's sunny, warmer, and much less windy. that's why sunday will be the nicer of the two days. monday we cool back down, get breezy from the other system out in the pacific. you'll see that in the temperature trends. watch what's coming our way. inland valleys, 70 is the average for this time of year. that's pretty much where we are today. we warm up a little sunday. then monday gets a little breezy and cooler. that quickly clears out and we warm up in a much more

numbers. i kind of actually gauge him, it's like our running joke. i see him lifting something and have to tell the weight coach i have to do more than steph. >> yeah, he's come a long way. he was a string bean, but he's put on tone the last couple of years and he's been able to shoot since birth. >> and he's married to a chef too! coming up, remembering a legendary country star who died just one day before a major career milestone. plus, nuclear option. why governor newsom could halt the closure of a major nuclear power plant. and why ford is recalling half a million popular car. plus, proposal to ease the pain at the pump is dying, but under district attorney gascón, i prosecuted car break-ins. all repeat offenders, often in organized crime rings. but when chesa boudin took office, he dissolved

we weren't the only ones. that's why the wind was stronger today. as it goes into nevada, the winds reverse. that's an offshore wind. over the next hour or so, the winds stay intense. overnight they die down. and then tomorrow they come from a different direction. calmer, sunnier, and offshore winds are usually warmer. that will also play out in the temperatures. mid to upper 40s for morning lows with a calmer start to the day, and daytime highs instead of climbing into the low 70s with a strong wind will be mid to upper 80s with a very light breeze. so it will feel better tomorrow. still breezy around the water in the afternoon, but not tear include strong. then we do it again. monday, there's the next
system that comes into our north and looks just like the one that came through the last couple of hours. so that's why on monday we get a little cooler. you see it in the seven-day forecast. monday's numbers, everyone dips down a few degrees and it gets breezy. once it clears out, there don't appear to any other significant ones until maybe friday. so in between we warm up. san jose 75 for the daytime high tomorrow. 84 on wednesday. and looking at the microclimates, we see the same exaggerated process. 85 for the north bay valleys wednesday and thursday, then cooling back down to 75. this is what we do in spring. no systems look like threatening rain, just seesawing temperatures. back to you.
