lisa argen with our forecast now. and some temperature range -- a range from now until later, but not a lot later. i am not helping at all. >> we are looking at a very narrow range for the afternoon. but we usually see that in the afternoons, but in the morning we are seeing that. we are just in the 40s in santa rosa. while we are near 70 in half moon bay. what is that all about? it has to do with the wind. we are clear and the numbers have bottomed out. the cool air drains to the north bay and the valleys of the north bay. a gusty wind nearly 30 miles an hour has allowed half moon bay to stay pretty warm. here is san jose. nice and sunny with temperatures ranging from the 60s, san francisco, oakland and there is that 70, half moon bay, 67 in los gatos and low 50s for much of the south bay. from our east bay hills camera this morning, better air quality , but by the afternoon it is going to be toasty everywhere. 41 in santa rosa.
8:48 am
over in napa though it is 51. it depends on where you are. if you feel the autumn chill or the mild start, 61 in antioch and concord is at 55 and livermore is sitting at 51. the golden gate bridge, plenty of sunshine all day long. the beaches, wow, in the 80s today. we are looking at very little change. with the clear and cool conditions this morning you are thinking, yeah, it feels like fall. but by the afternoon we have beach weather with widespread 80s. it is so very dry out there, but the winds have backed off and that's why the national weather service has allowed the red flag warnings to expire. but still some breezy winds in the higher elevations for the next couple hours. cooler weather not only next week, but it looks like parts of the bay will cool off tomorrow with a stronger sea breeze. still well above normal and the culprit, double-barrel high pressure and a trough off the coast. it is allowing for the offshore flow to continue today.
8:49 am
i think it will be stronger today with the offshore flow and we are looking at temperatures ranging very little. we are talking about an 8-degree spread. but numbers around the state are even warmer in the south bay. we have the red flag warning from san diego, orange county, near 90 here and breezy in the mourn at the p 10s -- in the mountains. still very warm. upper 70s for yosemite and how about 80 in monterey with numbers warmer here than in sacramento. in fact, we could see high temperatures well into the 80s for santa cruz and 80s from half moon bay, pacifica and all the way up through .reyes. that's -- pointreyes. 84 in oakland with 81 in fremont. you are a little cooler yesterday in fremont. if you are headed over to the coliseum it is going to be a warm evening. the sunsets so much earlier and it will allow temperatures to drop off quickly after about 7:00. from the upper 70s to the upper 60s still a beautiful
8:50 am
evening. it is the texans and the 49ers at at&t park. a cooler afternoon, but still pleasant. 70s at 5:30 and by 9. a 30, mid60s. the raiders even later tomorrow. the numbers in the 60s for that game. forecast showing the temperatures still warm tomorrow and then turning cooler. increasing clouds tuesday, wednesday, and not going to see any rain, but the numbers are much, much cooler. recuff reon thursday and friday -- recovery on thursday and friday. 80s for everybody today. >> thank you, lisa. in sports, three hits and 16 strikeouts, not the recipe of success for the a's. the tiger take it to the max in game one of their division play of yo series. playoff series. larry beil has more in the sports highlights. >> he was the only pitcher in major league baseball to win more than 20 games this season and he was throwing raw, nasty heat at the a's last night in game one of the playoff series in oakland.
8:51 am

8:52 am
two. >> he is a swing and miss guy and they have several pitchers that get their share of strikeouts. >> if i am pitching game one or game five, it doesn't matter. when you are facing a post season team, a team like the a's , you have to bring your a-game. that's the way it is. >> he brought his a-game against the a's. red sox and rays and tampa bay lead until the fourth and then the red sox erupt for five runs. johnny gomes and a double off the green monster. the sox pour it on and they roll in the opener of that series 12-2. dusty baker had one year left on his contract, but the way the reds collapsed this season, the team decided it was time for a change. dusty had the best run in cinncinati since the big red machine in the 70s, but failed to get out of the first run of the playoffs three times. the latest demise on tuesday. baker, the former giants skipper admitted, you know what? maybe it is time to go.
