6:14 pm
and rest. i am so grateful that vicki was on the call with me. >> here's to many more, friend. >> the topper on all of this is that both women were at the university of texas brain institute. lori is fully recovered now. let's check in with rob. a very pleasant day but not every day this week will be that way for some people, right? this weekend and next weekend probably will be more pleasant to be outside. between now and then, a warm-up is around the corner right now 72 in san jose and yes, san jose by tuesday should be closer to 90 degrees for the daytime high and out toward dublin 75 and you can see the wind direction is west at 15. that will change. you will see a little bit of the north wind tomorrow and in
6:15 pm
the tri-valley tomorrow with the upper 80s to 90. we should eventually see mid-to upper 90s by tuesday and wednesday and here is a view of san francisco at 59 degrees. no heat obviously but a strong seabreeze but even san francisco we can see temperatures climbing into the upper 70s toward the middle part of the week. thing to watch for the inland valley and santa clara valley, moderate air-quality tomorrow. the wind will be gusty on the hilltops but not quite as strong down and some of the valley so we will have to watch those air pollution levels and especially inland contra costa counties seen numbers to spare those levels by the middle of the week. the seabreeze is winning the battle in terms of wind direction. everybody is onshore right now. heading into tuesday, the winds will turn off shore. and you can see the forecast and try not to be distracted by that. the numbers are climbing. tomorrow morning it should be in the 50s with hazy skies and by lunchtime, pretty close to the high temperatures today. so you can expect the numbers
6:16 pm
like 80 about noon tomorrow and 60s and 70s bayside tomorrow with the 90s popping up in the north bay valleys toward solano county. as we move forward into tuesday and wednesday, high pressure builds more strongly. so we will start the day off warmer with daytime heating kicking in toward tuesday and wednesday. you can see the temperature trend tuesday. almost every alley -- area in the valley will be mid-90s by average but livermore has 97 with fairfield getting up to 102 and we do have heat advisories for the sacramento valley. i would not be surprised if solano county and maybe the inland portions may be added to that for tuesday and wednesday. you can see here we do have two days of mid-90s across the inland east bay and maybe a little bit of sign the south wind cooling off in the north bay, but the bigger drop in temperatures comes on thursday. you can see the impact there with the wind turning back onshore leading to cooling temperatures by the end of the week.
6:17 pm
the bay won't see a lot of wind. it is really the hilltops of the north bay and we will get it dose of that offshore wind and the high fire danger through the middle part of the week and thursdays of the cooling temperatures. i wish we did have rain attached to that, but that will stay to the north likely. so plan on breezy conditions at times and cooling temperatures as we head into the weekend over memorial day. so we do begin the week with a warm. san francisco has mid-to upper 70s and the fire danger will have to be watched during the hottest days through the middle part of the week. we do trend cooler with windy conditions, but the temperatures will be kind of like the numbers we have right now into saturday and sunday. they are sharing their stories of survival. you will hear from people in michigan after a twister ripped through town.

6:22 pm
passion of them but the one play where he was confused is he said that can happen. the mavericks, i don't think they are changing because mark cuban, the owner, has a pocket book. he tweaked his ankle in game 2 but he is good to go in dallas. a preview of that is coming up next.
