4:50 pm
humidity, around san jose. and over towards walnut creek, similar skies, mid 70s, and humidity only 15%. so the hand cream and the lip balm you probably are going through packs of that this week. and right now even san francisco, right there near the bay, humidity at 32%. and 73 degrees. so even though the onshore winds have stopped, the marine air really has come back. we still have a slight offshore breeze keeping things dry and as high pressure builds we may still have to watch some areas of smoke as we go through the week. maybe not so much for this weekend but as the high gets stronger wednesday into thursday, we might see some winter time spare the air alerts due to some smoke pollution kind of building underneath that high pressure which is has kind of kept things locked in and dry over the bay area. winds slightly onshore. but not enough to bring in more moist marine air and no sign of any low clouds on the coast. once again, you will notice that tomorrow morning, in the 30s and 40s inland and closer to 52 degrees in san francisco, and 42 degrees in san jose, and yes, time change, saturday, at least get an extra hour sleep tomorrow
4:51 pm
morning. as we rewind one hour, the clocks, as we go back to bed tonight. now notice, as you head out to the raider game tomorrow, the numbers in the low 70s. hazy sunshine. pretty nice day around the bay area. like we are h like, like we had today. warmer, mid-80s in some areas. and mid to upper 70s tomorrow around the tri-valley. low 70s from oakland to hayward. and peninsula temperatures in the mid 70s. san francisco, not too bad. close to 70 degrees. and in the north bay, we will see upper 70s, close to 80 degrees. so as we go into november now, you can think of this as the first quarter of the rainfall season. unfortunately, if you have noticed outside, the high pressure keeping the rain on hold, and we think this should be the pattern, probably for the better part of the next seven days, even as the high recenters to our south. and rain is starting to impact the west coast but just staying too far to the north for now, so the long range outlook, unfortunately, it keeps things dry. not just through the end of the week, but through november 12, you can see this, pretty
4:52 pm
dry-looking forecast ahead. but there's good news, we're not seeing strong gusty offshore winds in the seven-day forecast. but a continuation of the warm temperatures in san francisco. we could see mid 70s towards the second half of next week. and the rain still not in the picture there for the seven-day forecast inland. but at least unlike last week, we're not seeing a return of strong gusty offshore winds in that seven-day forecast. >> it looks great. we're not going to get exactly what we want but there is no wind, and the temperatures are wonderful. >> yes. >> it is nice to get outside. >> and the containment on the fire is going up. so good news. >> yes. still ahead, in the wake of the deadly campfire, the community of paradise has rallied around the high school football team. how the team is offering hope and making people proud. my parents never taught me anything about managing money.
