we had a lot of blue sky here in ocean beach. fog free all the way through the day. only had a few high clouds passing by on the time lapse. let's take you outside right now. the biggest story at this hour is how mild it remains. 70 degrees in the south bay. and the north bay, still holding onto 69 degrees. that's an indication of how hot this dome of air is that's sitting across california. it stays with us as we head throughout tomorrow's forecast. and then we're also going to add some drier easterly winds. that's going to help to boost our temperatures. let's take a look at that thursday forecast. you can see, yes, it's going to be warmer here. in the north bay, closer to 90 degrees tomorrow. mid-70s in san francisco. that also goes for you in the marina. so is it going to get hotter than this? that's the big question. take you into the temperature trend. and you can see we're not

6:33 pm
days. and the larger thing we really want to tell everybody is the fact that yes, it was dry in winter. if you remember back there were storms in december and february where we did get a lot of rainfall. and that rainfall was good enough to get us into the average rainfall season despite the drought we're in. so in the short-term there's been a lot of fuel that's been able to grow across the area. lot of vegetation on the hillsides. all you need are a few components to help ramp up the fire danger. tomorrow we are going to have at least one of those. that's a drier off-shore easterly wind. it is not going to be extremely gusty, but winds as high as 16 in napa will help increase that fire threat. it will only stay gusty through thursday. then the winds will calm down right into this upcoming weekend. again, it's going to be mainly high temperatures in the 80s and the low humidity. we'll have details coming up in

differences. today it was more about a milder northerly wind flow. slightly cool at the coastline. and then for tomorrow here's the key change. it comes more out of the east. there is no, of course cold pacific air back here in the valleys. when that air comes from the east, it's drier and hotter. that's why temperatures will be warmer for us throughout our forecast. you can see the results of that drier easterly wind. instead of 70s in san jose we're going up to 83 degrees tomorrow. likely 85 in los gatos. pacifica, yes, going into the 70s tomorrow. palo alto, 83. san francisco in the 70s. 79 in soma. north bay, east bay, and also for the tri-valley some of the hottest temperatures. that's with that wind coming out of the east will move across the higher elevations. the air molecules will get excited, rub against each other so to speak, create friction. then you get the hotter temperatures.

88 expected in santa rosa. 86 in napa. across the tri-valley some of the warmest here across. does it get hotter than this? we don't think so. we're going to average mid-80s here through thursday friday and saturday. tomorrow's your warmest day in san francisco, so take note. and the numbers will be dropping into the weekend as well. what about that next possibility of rainfall? we still have that thankfully in the forecast. the gfs, the american model shows the possibility of showers by 11 a.m. next wednesday. it's still early out. but here's the new information we're getting. the european model now has the possibility of showers next week. that's good news for our confidence. we'll see what tomorrow has to bring us. >> okay. thank you, jeff. guess what tonight is. the final regular season game for the warriors before this weekend's playoffs. steph curry making headlines for what he did in practice. you got to see it to believe it. next.
