to be sunny and warm both days, but sunday in particular very warm. we are talking about low 80's, could be one of the hottest super balls they have played, so keep that in mind as you are watching the game and it is not as warm. just a stunning view of san francisco tonight. warm again tomorrow, sharply cooler and windier early next week. temperatures will be close to average for monday and tuesday. right now you are in the 40's and 50's. tomorrow morning you are looking at not much change, so it is a comfortable start. 40's, 50's out the door. afternoon highs will look like this. if you go for a run, do it early, because it is going to be warm in the south bay. 77 morgan hill. on the peninsula, 76 in palo alto. 73 and half moon bay. 72 degrees downtown francis is -- pacifica 72 degrees, downtown san francisco 70.
