we're seeing temperatures climbing a few degrees tomorrow. and possibly close to 90 degrees, maybe by wednesday. ocean beach right now, speaking of beaches, looks like there is some folks out there, 68 degrees. the wind has turned on shore, northwest breezes. so not seeing 70s right now. 68 degrees there at ocean beach. 74 in emeryville looking back to san francisco with hazy skies. dublin right now 82 degrees and into san jose temperatures in the upper 70s. but very likely this time tomorrow, should see mid-80s around downtown san jose. so wind speed and direction somewhat of an on-shore breeze. so the coast and inner bay, i saw temperatures drop a little bit compared to 24 hours ago but we think winds will turn out of the north and trend off shore setting the stage for dryer weather and warmer temperatures in the middle part of the week. in the morning, dress in layers. upper 40s to low 50s for morning and by 10:00 those temperatures already climbing into the 70s
4:49 pm
inland. look at the temperatures for the santa clara valley tomorrow, mid to upper 80s possible from san jose approaching gilroy 87 in the forecast. 82 in milpitass and you could see pleasanton and concord and wall net at 78 degrees and temperatures rebounding, mid to upper 70s tomorrow, 80 closer to palo alto and downtown san francisco having temperaturing in the mid to upper 70s for your monday. notice the north bay, close to 90 around santa rosa and sonoma and 86 in mill valley and 71 degrees at point rayes as we begin to lose the sea breeze. so both the inner bay and in our valleys we'll see a warm-up. mid to upper 70s around the inner bay and mid-80s inland. check out tuesday's forecast. upper 80s possible by 3:00 in the afternoon and then wednesday probably adding a couple of more degrees to that forecast. those temperatures climbing as high pressure will strengthen through wednesday, so just as soon as it begins to feel like we're locked in with summer-like
4:50 pm
temperatures, almost the exact opposite pattern could be setting up for friday and saturday. a cold trough of low pressure dropping down the coast. here is the key. if it drops over land it may not have a lot of moisture in that scenario, showers should stay over. but some of the computer models trying to bring it more do you know the coast to scoop up more moisture is for now we have to call for i chance of scattered showers and air that cold enough for snow in the sierra, possibly down to 6,000 feet by next weekend. so look at the roller coaster ride ahead for places like san francisco. could be close to 80 for a couple of days and then low 60s toward next weekend. so stay tuned to the toer-- the forecast there. 80s for tuesday and wednesday and then possibly upper 60s as we approach next weekend. i do want to show case that sierra forecast for you, because they'll see a reversal there, too, from the 70s mid-week to 40s and possibly snow by next sunday. so there you go.
