and is making its way into the bay. fog in fact has already been spotted along san francisco bay and san pablo bay and we do expect that fog to quickly and easily infiltrate into the valleys of the north bay, east bay, south bay. i got to tell you if you're traveling tonight use extreme caution, particularly if you're traveling along i-80. we expect that dense fog advisory to be in effect from fairfield all the way into sacramento even affecting parts of marryville. we talked about the warmer than average temperatures and still quite mild at this 11:00 hour, 53 for san francisco, 48 for concord, 48 for fairfield, seeing 50 degrees right now in san jose. so the dense fog advisory, we expect it to remain in place until 9:00 a.m. that does not mean that your skies are going to be clear of fog, it simply means that that's when the national weather service will allow this
advisory to expire. but because of that fog we're expecting pretty poor air quality so a winter spare the air alert has been issued for sunday. that means incredibly unhealthy air conditions, the rest of us will see moderate air conditions. we see it arcing well to the northwest, all the result of building high pressure over the bay area. that's why we saw the warm temperatures today. that's all so why we see the advancement of the fog and also it won't be ater blow strong high pressure system, going to allow clouds to slowly move in, that's going to be the making of some rain, let's take a look at the pinpoint forecast as far as the fog expected to be incredibly thick for the coastline and the bay and then as we march into the day we will begin to see that clearing. the areas beyond the east bay hills and the santa clara valley. we'll see the best hearing and temperatures into the upper 60s, perhaps we might even get a 70-degree mark. 66 for oakland, 65 for livermore as a daytime high.
68 in san jose, easily teetering with 70 degrees. i talked about the possibility of rain, that comes on tuesday, mostly to the north. we do expect a little bit of it to try and make its way down to the south but we don't expect it to be drastic. by wednesday we'll see some partly cloudy skies but by thursday those clouds come right back and that brings the possibility of a rain-out for your friday and that means the likelihood of even more rain for the weekend and quite possibly some snow in the sierra. >> i know you said there was not much chance of sunshine. >> very little. >> all right. thank you very much. all right. high school football is making news. >> not over yet. going to be another game. last night was a huge one. tonight de la salle and cal high for all the marbles. and, get this, brett favre will not play tomorrow. >> ooh. >> also the sharks looking for payback for last season. you like that, huh.
