6:49 am
we've had some pretty nice views this morning and we will show those in a minute but yes, you may have to use your wipers in this loop of satellite imagery showing that we are on the periphery of some of that high cloud-based to the east o■ us and the low clouds from a more dramatic onshore push us throughout the day today in terms of the seabreeze and we widen the view, the showers from southern california around arizona through the sierra nevada where once again the flash flood watch continues throughout the evening hours and they have picked up measurable rain here, it continues today but the risk of debris flows over the burn scar areas for mudslides and rock falls simply because that water cannot be absorbed in that dry soil. so this continues today and and beautiful look from the east bay hills camera, a cooler afternoon at 57 in the in the i 61 in oakland, 62 in mountain view as well as paulo alto and
6:50 am
here is a look at walnut creek, a gorgeous view once again with low 50s and the clouds up in santa rosa. 57 in nevada with 67 by the delta but the southwest wind is up to 35 miles an hour so that is going to allow for a cooldown maybe seven or 8b0 cooler today inland. low 60s and concorde in livermore, mount tan is glorious with a low cloud deck. we have fog and drizzle at the coast around the bay but otherwise it's sunny and cooler inland today and that will trend right on through the first week of august as seasonal temperatures are going to stay with us. marine layer won't go anywhere, it will retreat throughout the midmorning and come back at night providing a seabreeze and the warmest numbers will be in the low 90s today. livermore about 90, a little warmer monday and tuesday with the coolest day wednesday and temperatures rebound thursday and friday. but you notice no extremes here. that's the good news although we are exceptionally dry but we
6:51 am
can count on some average readings. 82 in san jose, warmer to the south in morgan hill at 89 and sunnyvale at about 80, on the peninsula the wind is up to 20 miles an hour in spots with 72 in san bruno. san francisco in the low 60s, up to the north cloverdale gets a better afternoon with 92, 82 sonoma and on the east bay a few high clouds, union city should warm to about 80 today and 90 for antioch so that's a better afternoon for you with 86 in walnut creek. so maybe give the ac a break today. the accuweather seven-day forecast, we have a morning drizzle living way to sunshine with high clouds and then another pretty similar day for your sunday as we start august, looking ahead with temperatures coming up a little bit here and there but nothing too extreme.
6:52 am
we will keep that low cloud and fog deck with us and it really has been consistent all summer long . >> it really has. thank you. pirates of the caribbean proved it is possible to make a blockbuster movie based on a ride at disneyland. now they are trying it again with jungle cruise and like the earlier franchise this new one does depend on some big stars. entertainment reporter sandy kenyon has a closer look at the new film. >> reporter: jungle cruise is proof chemistry can be unpredictable. the rock comes from the rough- and-tumble world of professional wrestling. emily blunt from the rich classical tradition of british theater. but there's no telling exactly why they click, but they do. when the movie first screened for test audiences those early filmgoers wanted even more of
6:53 am
their repartee, it begins when a scientist hires a riverboat captain to help her find a magical tree. >> legend has it there's a tree in the amazon that possesses unparalleled healing powers. and the arrowhead is the key to unlocking it. >> reporter: though jungle cruise is of course fraught with danger sometimes it seems very real, other times not so much. >> who brings a submarine to the amazon? >> reporter: the rock is known for his action movies and he has plenty of opportunities to show why in this one. but dwayne johnson the actor is also on board for the cruise. >> the rocks you see in the river are sandstone but some people just take them for granted. >> reporter: that pun is one of dozens that add up to a fun film for families especially when you consider its other
