side of the valley, 40s around sarato saratoga. should see areas away from downtown one more chance at patchy frost we think heading into tomorrow morning. there you see 40s already around walnut creek and san ramon. this is a pretty view looking at emeryville. 51. look at the high clouds making for a fantastic sunset. weather underground sky camera network showing you a similar view as you look out along 680 there. high clouds moving in made up of ice crystals which do a nice job of refracting the sun light and make for beautiful sunl lesunse not good at dropping raindrops. high pressure off our coast. no chances of rain from now until thursday. the warmest weather this week in terms of daytime highs coming up as we head into tomorrow and thursday. overnight, north bay, tri-valley, might see a little bit of patchy frost. the cloud cover making for a nice sunset tonight. might keep our temperatures up by 2 to 3 degrees from the very frosty temperatures we had a bit earlier this morning. low 60s in the forecast tomorrow.
5:17 pm
around san jose. actually these daytime highs in the south bay may run slightly above average wednesday and thursday. tri-valley also seeing some low 60s. south of danville, san ramon. upper 50s from concord to antioch. peninsula temperatures tomorrow, 57 san mateo. similar temperatures from san francisco up into the north bay. you'll find highs in the upper 50s and a chance we could see low 60s on thursday. so the hour by hour outlook, that high that is off to the west will build over northern california. warming us up. a chance of finding some 60s for highs. more so on thursday. but watch the change late thursday. see the clouds here coming up out of the south. these are mid-level clouds. eventually, a chance of seeing showers we think late friday, mainly for the south bay. so one system coming up from the south then we'll see another system, a much colder one at that, dropping down through the weekend which will give us a chance of showers and unfortunately for new year's eve weekend plans, we may be dealing with a chance of snow across the sierra and up toward shasta.
