5:26 pm
tonight, 27 in petaluma, 30 for napa, 29 degrees in sonoma. so it's late february par for the course. we'll usually get a cold snap this time of year and they certainly will up in ukiah, lake port and clearlake. extended forecast shows high clouds tomorrow and temperatures in the low to mid- 50s, a notch warmer than today. in the extended forecast we'll look for 50s all the way through the weekend. by the time we get to saturday and sunday it will absolutely skyrocket back to 60 degrees, back where we belong to quote one of the famous meteorologists, can't quite remember who. we'll be back after a break.
5:27 pm
i am extremely proud of jackie, gaby and stephanie. we worked with pg&e to save energy because we wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency. we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls. together, we're building a better california.
