offshore when we go forward, here's a live look at sfo, no delays happening there. but there are some pockets of a little bit of fog one on and some scattered clouds here is the shot of alcatraz island and still kind of in dealing with quite a bit in the way of some localized fog though, but around us things have cleared up nicely there is little package upstream or seery gather. late this afternoon evening and kind of hang around for the overnight and that's going to hold out little opportunity of a sprinkle here or there. it won't last for long not great in terms of coverage or amounts enough again if you get lucky to dirty up the car winter weather with us they will be a winter weather advisory up there in the mountains of looks like here the staffs on all of this. winter weather advisory sierra nevada. snow levels. heavy above 5,000 feet by comparison about 2 to 5 inches of snow localized at 5 to 10 that should be inches not feet 5 to 10 inches and travel could be hazardous in spots because it will be coupled with some strong winds and all that's will get a winter weather advisory this kicks in for
7:46 am
06:00am actually that's incorrect there and actually kicks in on sunday morning, it looks like okay, let's get the future cast winds. and here you have it the up tick happens by late tonight early tomorrow morning now by friday under were rather sunday at 05:00pm there you can see the coverage area nap up. we don't see a whole lot going on in solano county yet it's later boom. that's when the big hit happens sunday night into monday and also in the east bay notice, the wind directions are all north. so it's a bit of an offshore wind is at hand for us right now. this is kind of interesting there's that little opportunity for a shower that most of it is out to sea. quiet during most of the week here comes next weekend on saturday. looks pretty hopeful air lease that and there's more as we get into around sunday monday. those levels sneaker comes around and gives us a good dose of some rain again by monday. so there's some hope out there. but we need it because we are abnormally dry with now moderate conditions developing and portions of contra costa
7:47 am
county and solano county already so we could use this dose coming our way high temperatures today in the 60's, mid 60's at that lower 60's around the media at bay. those temperatures are changing in the long run forecast getting up to around 70 or so as we go forth chilly tomorrow though that slight chance happening and then as you can see mostly sunny for the balance of the week. research shows that 80% of premature heart disease is preventable. >>eating a healthy diet with regular exercise and not smoking of course are all health smart. but there are some studies that show that certain foods might help reduce your risk of heart disease are health expert, karen dolan joins me this morning with our top 5 picks as we wrap up heart health month and here we got the top 5 that tough i had a hard time period and the there are so many out there so many out yeah, but these are foods that are aren't shown to reduce cholesterol reduce blood sugar and blood pressure and.

8:45 am
peninsula, san francisco you will notice and even off to the east bay shoreline as we see now this is going to shift direction and speed as we get later on the forecast period. sfo is morning was talking about no delays but hayes leftover just a touch there, and we swing things around the u c berkeley, nice shot of the east bay shoreline and the blue bay blue skies off to the distance off to the distance in terms of time we see a little package of clouds over dropping south across the bay area this afternoon evening. and then the little opportunity for perhaps late sunday morning to bring in that token little sprinkle or so let's get off to this winter weather though, because although will be somewhat of a bus for the bay area. not so much up in the mountain city headed there. yes, fresh snow is coming your way vertically above 5,000 feet here the particulates of this we're talking about technically about 05:00pm or 06:00pm this kicks in tonight through noon on sunday. and amounts are going to heaviest obviously about 5,000 feet but we're talking about 2 to 5 inches of snow localized could get up about 5 to 10. travel will be
8:46 am
hazardous and spots even though this is a relatively a modest snow event coupled with some strong winds and all of that in your travel so take that as caution too. here's a look at the winds up tick it's about here boom there you can see up there napa county solano county is just getting started this is now for a sunday afternoon evening period. particularly late he s overnight into monday morning. the east bay, lots of good coverage. there and this will be an offshore wind of the winds being in the 20 mile per hour range east bay shoreline technically, not in that that will be still bit of me. a brisk side 26 mile per hour winds for example that snapshot for san francisco all their k there's that little rain opportunity or snows up in the mountains. let's get to next weekend here. wow this looks nice doesn't it so that looks like some juicy coverage happening here coming from the gulf of alaska by next weekend. wait there's more as we get into sunday monday here we have it. it does a little long scenic route before it gets here but another opportunity into early the
8:47 am
following week that's not this tuesday that's next tuesday monday tuesday zone to look out for my pick up another opportunity for rain which we need according to our drought monitor here we're not only little dry but starting to get into the moderate categories you can see the contra costa county and solano counties thus far that not the party be changing about a week or so slower 60's line up the east bay shoreline 59 going on for a vallejo usually there are a little bit of cooler than that compared to our neighbors elsewhere. however we do have some winds are working to attend a mix things up anyway we've got 60's a pair of the north bay for highs, 65 for any ah but forget the 70's. they're not far behind their coming in the long range forecast as we get into next week warming back up again looks like around 72 for wednesday bought by friday. there's another change happen and maybe some showers. research shows that 80% of premature heart disease is preventable. >>eating a healthy diet with regular exercise and not smoking of course are all
8:48 am
health smart. but there are some studies that show that certain foods might help reduce your risk of heart disease are health expert, karen dolan joins me this morning with our top 5 picks as we wrap up heart health month and here we got the top 5 that tough i had a hard time period and the there are so many out there so many out yeah, but these are foods that are aren't shown to reduce cholesterol reduce blood sugar and blood pressure and. >>on yes well the and it increased blood flow to the ivory i do it all let's talk about the number one here that sold me on boat, you know on tell you bill fiber soluble fiber helps to it becomes very discuss in you're in you're going eat it and then the grads on to cholesterol you had called the cholesterol a 5 it takes it out yeah and so it doesn't go into the bloodstream saw so it never
8:49 am
even gets nasty, you look at it the more you either that soluble fiber and the better so you really want to get in the habit of oatmeal yeah been shown to reduce cholesterol and reduces ldl sand and all those wonderful thing for the second we go to is the old apple a day apple that's and also a soluble fiber to vote is it they did studies on on women that were eating dried apples and you know, but a land of 2 apples a day. actually they really consider only reduce their cholesterol levels there l deals, total cholesterol so an apple a day is good to apples a day is better. yeah if you can do it exactly and then you know when you when you reduce your cholesterol, your ldl is by one percent then that also reduces your heart risk air stroke chris pyle on percent. so that was very significant in the study the of than in a year what i find interesting
8:50 am
is that last week you were talking about getting away from foods that have labels happened go back to foods that great example of that it's perfect example, ok, let's move on now to a sunfish some this you talk about something called smash ash is an acronym for the types the 5 types of food fish that you should try to eat because of the fact that is less of mercury in it in own making threes smashed starting with and and is far max i'm not the not the king or the spanish those are high in mercury they are and then and starting hot and then you have ok so that makes up the smash that makes you want to try to include these into your diet they're smaller big fish are the ones that you want to stay away from because of the mercury ah ok and i understand that the study showed that these really counted for a
8:51 am
drop in trying triglyceride right, yes, the facts in your yeah are you near and it also helps reduce inflammation and that is the key to a lot of these diseases and heart disease ok so now we learned about smashing yes move on to wall monthslong >>people who are trying to lose weight say ok no more not snow murder, but these are healthy and they actually are anti-inflammatory they found that those that are in the study they found that those at 8 an ounce of walnuts maybe up to 5 times a week really reduce their their risk for that lisa just walnuts are all types not actually a wall that's have the most to give you the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to omega threes at the plant omega threes all take have to eat it in moderation because they are pretty dense in everything in life moderation get all right, let's let's go on to number 5 in your top 5 lentils really
