5:20 pm
degrees over where we were yesterday. we did have some seventies yesterday although morgan hill wants to was 72 today 66 in santa rosa 66. in napa. nice day. tomorrow is about the same but a little bit warmer. i think we'll see a couple degrees of warming. i think santa rosa goes up to 69 degrees sound. rafael this up to 66. subtle changes, but nice of, you know, slightly, maybe above average for what you might expect this time of year. the story is that while the weather story the big weather story is pacific northwest british columbia. where they are already have had record setting atmospheric river events, and they're set up for a whole another string of that throughout the next week or so, so they're really going off the charts in terms of rainfall, subtropical moisture that far north that melts the snow causes all sorts of problems up in british columbia, and it'll get worse as we go into the next few days, so as you look at our forecast. you can kind of look at them because you can see we're underneath everything. look, look at that. those plumes going in thousands of miles of tropical moisture hammering
5:21 pm
north of seattle now, on friday, it starts to drift south a little bit. temperatures might cool look at that. next look at this next blog going in on saturday in the british columbia, so they are really. up against it, and it just continues. so that's going to be, i think in terms of whether stories i think british columbia could be huge weather story. i mean, in lieu of us having basically nothing to dry conditions with some valley fog. we had a little patchy valley fog early this morning. it was there. it didn't last long. we saw some out towards morocco. we saw some out in the valley. beautiful evening. there's sutro tower off in the distance. you can see an airplane right up here, right? and you just saw this beautiful out there tonight. no coastal farm. without the coastal fog. obviously, the beaches pretty pleasant today, mid sixties low sixties something like that. and as we go into the evening hours, the winds want to pick up now, if this weren't coming off on the heels of so much well, weather if this was november, like couple novembers ago, we would probably see some kind of fire, weather alert and what i'm
5:22 pm
going to show you is the model as we go into tonight. there's tuesday at five o'clock about now. and then you go. we're going to take you and see that bullseye just above vacaville there, so that's c level winds in vacaville 40 miles an hour, so that's pretty gusty. that means in the hills you could see 50 55 mile an hour winds. and then the winds die down pretty quickly, so really in that bull's eye if you exist in that bullseye, which concludes a little bit of napa through the early morning hours, you're going to be getting some pretty gusty winds. that's not to mention. that we won't see a little bit around here like mount diablo right now is already going 30 miles an hour or do nor so that north wind is, um, kind of the precursor. right that's the direction this one is going to come from. we'll check these tonight, but i think. by you know, 10 o'clock tonight, mount diablo is gonna be blowing 35 40 miles an hour, so not crazy winds but wind when we come back, we'll look at the complete forecast and get your thanksgiving day figured out. the federal looking forward to it. thank you. charitable groups are now kicking into high gear coming up where volunteers were

them real hardship on me. relief is coming. 50 million barrels, the largest ever release from the u. s. strategic petroleum reserve. help provide a supply we need as we recover from this pandemic. in the wake of the arab oil embargo of the early 19 seventies, the u. s department of energy set up the strategic petroleum reserve, the world's largest known emergency stockpile of crude oil. currently 605 million barrels. the 50 million barrels from the reserve will take a month to get to the market. according to the white house. it will take time, but before long you should see the price of gas drop where you fill up your tank high school of business energy economist severin borenstein says. it usually takes about 3 to 5 weeks to lead to lower prices at the pump, but this time the savings should come very quickly. the really good news is that oil prices actually topped out about a month ago and have been coming
5:34 pm
down since then. and i know that the president is doing everything that they can. it's an international problem. biden announced that china, great britain, india, japan and south korea. will also release some of their reserves to have a greater impact on lowering worldwide crude prices. that's the biggest cost in a gallon of gasoline. the total release could be closer to 100 million barrels, so that would be good. it would have a modest, very modest effect. the mere threat of this last week lowered crude oil prices about 5% but thanks to us production these days, the extra money for gas is largely staying in the u. s not going to opec, the u. s. is almost in balance between the amount of oil we produce in the amount of oil we consume. now every time the price of oil goes down by a dollar, you save 2.5 cents at the pump, so if it goes down $10 a barrel, you saved 25 cents.
5:35 pm
