Better weather, higher temperatures ahead starting Thursday

Widespread showers are under way this morning in Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley with a 70 percent chance of rain continuing during the day and a quarter-inch accumulation expected. The high temperature today will only reach 55 degrees with brisk winds at times reaching 20 mph.

Early this morning, the California Highway Patrol issued a wind advisory to warn motorists of gusty conditions on the Bay Bridge. Strong winds and gusts started posing a traffic hazard on the Bay Bridge just before 1 a.m., according to the CHP.

The wind advisory remains in effect as of 6 a.m. and the CHP is cautioning drivers to slow down and leave plenty of space between vehicles.

Showers are likely again tonight with a low temperature of 44 degrees and variable gusty winds of 5 to 30 mph anticipated.

For Wednesday, the National Weather Service is calling for a 50 percent chance of occasional rain but otherwise mostly cloudy skies and a high temperature of 56 degrees.

Look for steady improvement on Thursday with the Weather Service predicting a warming trend and sunny skies as the weekend approaches and temperatures well into the 70s.
