really, really dry relative humidity. here's the big reason why. this huge, huge ridge is continuing to develop for the next couple hours. winds pushing in from the north as that trough backs it up. once we head into the weekend, it starts to really die down thanks to that trough beginning to weaken. so as we take a look at wind gusts extending into the afternoon hours, let's start off at 8:30 a.m. this morning, strong offshore winds near fairfield and concord, around 25 miles per hour at 1:00. as we extend into the evening and late overnight hours it does start dying down. this is a quick windstorm we're dealing with today alone. that's the reason why that wind advisory expires actually at 2:00 p.m. so this is impacting the north bay mountains, solano county and the santa clara hills. we're seeing gusts up to 50 miles per hour at times and to add to that, of course, the national weather service has issued a red flag warning for solano county, also due to how low relative humidity is getting. daytime highs we're still dealing with upper 70s in the
