6:33 pm
protect the people of oakland, as well. >> reporter: and tonight at midnight, those sheriff's patrols come to an end at least for now, ann. >> don, let me ask you about the chp because i know they have been helping out oakland police. so are they staying on the streets? >> reporter: apparently, from councilman gallo, it's the same deal as the sheriff. he is concerned whatever deal they settle with the sheriff if they get a deal the chp will want also so it's going to be expensive if they can keep them at all. >> thank you. more bay area headlines. a new demand for more security funding for public transit for the bay area. congressman eric swalwell is leading the effort calling on lawmakers to allocate money to fema's security grant program in an effort to keep passengers safer. recent federal report shows mass transit systems are difficult to secure making them vulnerable to terrorist

something for everybody this week. don't you. >> trying to make everybody happy. >> it will be toasty. >> you'll be like oh, april. are we already starting this? the answer is yes for a couple of days but if you like it cooler we have that in the forecast, as well. so i'm just the bearer of the information. you can thank mother nature for the weather for the next few days. it was 80 when you left in livermore and then 77 and got to oakland where all these folks are, now 71. by the time you get to san francisco, it will be in the 50s. that's because we have a light onshore flow. not enough to impact you out toward livermore but certainly enough to get you on the peninsula and in the city this evening. microclimate forecast will take you across the bay to san leandro. sunshine tomorrow, 76. monday, that's when we really start heating up. you in san leandro will be in the low 80s. san francisco has a shot at the low 80s on monday and tuesday, as well. our weather will be dominated for the next several days by this big area of high pressure taking the storm track and
6:48 pm
shoving it around this high all the way up into the pacific northwest and southern british columbia. so rain is not the issue. that will stay constant. we are not going to get any. but where high pressure is will dictate what kind of weather we're going to have. high pressure is getting closer to us so the onshore flow will be less tomorrow. temperatures will go up because we'll have less cooling influence of the ocean. the warmup against tomorrow even at the coastline. on monday and tuesday, high pressure is in the perfect spot to give us winds going around the high and if you follow the arrows, that's an offshore wind eliminating the influence of the ocean. that's when we get toasty, close to 90 inland. 80 near the bay and those of you along the coastline usually in the 50s and 60s, you will hit the 70s coming up on monday and tuesday at the coast. now, cooler weather with the onshore flow all we have to do is shift the winds back to the west. we'll do that on wednesday and temperatures will begin to drop. but tomorrow, we're going up temperature-wise. concord 85. san jose 85. about 15 degrees above average. fremont 83. redwood city 82. 86 for walnut creek.
