sutro tower where you can see the dimly lit skyline of san francisco. that smoke obscuring the view right now. so that air quality, it is unhealthy across the board. and tomorrow while the air quality may fluctuate hour by hour depending on the winds tomorrow on average for the next 24 hours unhealthy to poor air quality. if you do have respiratory issues you do want to limit your time outside. right now temperature-wise we are cooling off rapidly into the 30s and 40s. 40 in san ramon, a little bit warmer in san francisco at 56. the wind in our hills have been slowly backing up throughout the evening hours. so our red flag warning here locally has been allowed to expire. however, we still have high fire danger across much of california. right now red flag warnings continue for redding and as far south as southern california where these will continue for
the next 48 hours because winds are not letting up especially around los angeles. back here at home tonight, though, the winds are calm near the surface. that's one of the problems why we have see much smoke in our atmosphere. so hazy skies. it will be rather cool in the north bay and inland where we drop into the 30s. 44 in san francisco, 42 in san jose. so certainly you need the heavier jacket early on tomorrow morning as it is pretty chilly. tomorrow afternoon we're pretty much topping out on either side of 79 degrees. but once again you'll have hazy sunshine and poor air quality. here's the problem, why the air mass is so stagnant. this area of high pressure is just stuck over the west coast. what it's doing, it's not allowing storms to enter the west coast, so it's keeping us dry, kicking up the winds in southern california and acts like a lid in our atmosphere this time of year. that's why the smoke cannot escape the bay area, and that's why we're having so many issues
with our air quality. however, there may be some good news in our future. we take a look at the rainfall for the week ahead, and you can see it is dry. at least with the yellow squares. however, the latest guidance we have as we head into the week of thanksgiving we do see that high pressure getting out of here and that storm door slightly opening. so our chance of rainfall will likely happen on november 19th and it looks like another chance some light rainfall may occur around thanksgiving. we'll keep you updated but it's good to see the pattern maybe changing finally after a very dry stretch to the rainy season so far. here's the accuweather seven day forecast. we have poor air quality tomorrow as we observe veterans day on monday. those smoky skies will not let up on tuesday. and we're still calling it hazy sunshine on wednesday. and by thursday it looks like we're still seeing poor air quality. and by friday into the upcoming
weekend that dry pattern continues. we'll keep you updated on that. >> and we'll keep our fingers crossed. drew, thanks. a multi-million dollar beer and all thro' the house. 'twas the night before christmas, not a creature was stirring, but everywhere else... there are chefs, bakers and food order takers. doctors and surgeons and all the life savers. the world is alive as you can see, this time of the year is so much more than a bow and a tree.
