tracking any rain this weekend. high pressure will be building in the next couple of days. you can see here as i squeeze in a little bit closer. those winds kicked up behind a week system yesterday. so no fog to speak about there but could be a little bit pesky getting on the roadways there. sfo reporting a sustained wind at sfo 20 miles per hour. mountain view gusting to 24. livermore sustained at 7 teen also gusting to 24. as we get into the afternoon it's going to die down some. it won't go away completely but it won't be as strong as it was yesterday in many spots. we have 54 to start your morning in redwood city. in the east bay we have 52 in hayward and 53 degrees in walnut creek. some areas keeping the temperatures up and really
howling in areas of our north and east bay hills. as i mentioned at the top of the hour there's a wind advisory for those locations today. 76 for san rafael. low to mid 70s for the east bay shoreline. upper 70s for the inner east bay. 70 degrees expected in brendawood today. going to santa cruz for the weekend how about sunny and 71 for santa cruz and temperatures even warmer for your saturday. and the cool it back a little bit on sunday but a gorgeous springtime forecast for you. >> that weekend looks dynamite. >> absolutely. well we had a couple of windy days here in the bay area but like nothing what they saw in the desert. clean up under way this morning. a huge dust storm rolled through that city. you can hear that wind.
wind gusts reached as high as 84 miles per hour yesterday afternoon. the national weather service issued both a high wind warning and a dust advisory. they grounded commercial airline flights, they flipped semi trucks and they toppled trees. one person was injured when the winds caused a construction wall to collapse here at the famed monte carlo resort and casino. now while the winds will be calmer today, those wind gusts could still top 40 miles per hour. state water officials have measured the spring snow pack in the sierra and while the reading is the best in years there could be a down side. the survey showed an impressive 94" of snow on highway 50 above lake tahoe. east bay mud now says it needs to be prepared for flooding as all of that snow begins to melt.
yesterday snow back reading was 180% the snow pack level. all that snow in the area is good for the skiers and snow boarders out there. those epic sierras and snow storms have brought 40' of snow in the tahoe and that means the ski season is far from over. >> the snow we had in january and february is one of our biggest years we've seen in 15 years in the area. >> it's expected to be especially busy at the lake tahoe ski resorts this weekend. and they're expecting a huge number of skiers and snowboarders from the bay area over the next few days. the oakland a's are working
on a long term goal. >> we can really be part of the fabric of the community. >> what the a's are hoping to do as they could soon be the only professional sports team left in the east bay. >> coming up here next, also a bridge on an atlanta freeway collapses after it engulfed in flames. what fuelled that fire and the massive backup that followed.
welcome back to mornings on 2. one of the busiest interstates in atlanta collapse. on interstate 85 investigators are still trying to figure out the cause of the fire. but they say the flames were fuelled by plastic construction piping that was being stored just underneath the overpass. no one was hurt here but how thousands of commuters were stuck in their cars with no way trying to get out of that traffic. >> so we just said pull over here and we're going to walk like four miles we have to walk. >> wow. georgia's top transportation officials says there's no way to tell when the highway can open. north carolina's controversial bathroom bill has been overturned, but critics say
the repeal does not go far enough. the new law allows transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice. but it bans cities from passing their own anti-discrimination laws up until the year 2020. the state's new democratic governor signed the bill yesterday which he calls a compromise. >> this is not a perfect deal and it is not my preferred solution. it stopped short of many things we need to do. >> the bathroom law cost north carolina millions of dollars in lost business and the ncaa moved a number of championship basketball games out of the state. the ncaa now says it will decide soon about whether to allow games to return. but critics say the repeal law may not be enough to bring back sporting events and businesses across the state. this means the case is now coming back to the 9th circuit
court of appeals in san francisco. the most recent executive order rickets travel from six muslim majority countries. the state of hawaii argued that version two violated the constitution and discriminated against immigrants on the basis of their nationality. protesting recent racist incidents at albany high school. the chaos that unfolded during a sit-in by hundreds of students. >> plus one bay area county gets a grant to help low income families. still leaving thousands without help. honey nut cheerios gets their delicious taste from honest ingredients. like real delicious honey and real oats. okay that's still honey.
let us check on weather here. rosemary telling us about a breezy forecast once again around the bay. >> not as windy as yesterday. the winds are going to dial back just a little bit as we get into the afternoon and we have a nice enjoyable forecast in store for the first week of april. as we get into the wind there's still an advisory until noontime today for the north bay hills and the east bay hills and i'm seeing those gusts anywhere from 30 to 40 miles per hour. cross portions up in the north bay and east bay. for some that wind helps to keep that cool air from settling and because of it temperatures are starting out in the 50s in many spots. but let's check in on the winds first. notice the arrows on this meaning if you're driving along i-80 you've got that wind right up against your car. in t
