people were wearing sweatshirts to keep from getting too cold. i think, rob, you're showing us the difference wean the coast and inland. in some places 50 degrees. >> 50 degrees. >> those are those microclimates. >> you be a weathercaster, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, hundreds, you would have been right today. within about a 40-minute drive around the bay area. half moon bay you kind of needed a jacket at times. some of the cooling did reach san francisco. there is a beautiful view, the bay bridge in the distance where we've got a sea breeze cooled. 54 degrees. but that is not carrying too far inland right now. as you see, patchy low clouds closer to san francisco. san jose kind of the comfortable middle ground today as we saw temperatures mostly in the mid-80s. mid- to upper 80s tomorrow. but the exceptions to the rule obviously in terms of the sea breeze aoling. it's been out towards the tri-valley. it's only cooled down to 78 degrees after a high of 106 degrees today in livermore. tomorrow it will be probably just a little bit cooler.
but we're still expecting highs near 102 around livermore tomorrow. so here is a look at the breeze. this is important. fairfield has got a southwest wind at 23 miles per hour. if you have friends and family in the sacramento area, they look for that. the delta breeze through solano county, starting to see a sign it's copping back, but it really lacks the cooling or the deep marine layer air to help bring in the cooler temperatures. notice as we head toward the morning hours, we're only cooling into the upper 60s and 70s inland. that is the story tomorrow morning. with the rung start to the warm temperatures, tomorrow's highs again for at least one more day. south of san jose seeing the temperatures in the mid- to upper 90s. down toward morgan hill, towards antioch and concord, the today. still 70s and 80s around the east bay. peninsula 75 degrees. san mateo, a cool 63 around half moon bay. and there you see the temperatures around san francisco, mid 60s in the north bay. ranging from the 80s to 90s up towards santa rosa.
107 to 108 degrees again tomorrow around clearlake. so we have to talk a little bit about some wildfire smoke. by the time we get into monday, might see a little closer to the bay area. we've had the fires burning to the north and east really take off in intensity. you can see how the unhealthy air will stay to the east of us. but as winds come down the coast at times you might notice a little haze over the next couple of mornings as we begin to see the cooling changes. not much cooling tomorrow. but by the time we get to monday's forecast, notice the impact of the sea breeze. temperatures inland now mid- to upper 80s. that is the big drop in temperatures. and the good news is it should stick around future a while as high pressure moves out. trough of low pressure approaches the west coast, which means the ocean air conditioning should be ongoing. once we get to monday, things for the valleys do look considerably cooler. so for san francisco, looking from upper 60s to mid 60s for the middle part of the week. valley areas tomorrow inland east bay, tri-valley, morgan
hill should see a noticeable drop in temperatures monday and tuesday. the afternoon this time of year should be mid- to upper 80s. we're finally getting closer to average as we get towards the middle part of the week. one more day to go. >> more than halfway through the current heatwave. that's good news. anthony joins us with a look ahead in sports. >> shockwaves and a wake-up call for team usa. it was only an exhibition, but it is sending shockwaves around the sports world. who handed team usa a stunning upset in their first olympic tune-up game? stick around. sports is next.
