clouds are still kind of building, weighing the distance. but they are not going into the large cauliflower type clouds we have been seeing over the past two days because we are losing the energy from that system as well. and over the tri-valley barely see any of it so we will start to get back to normal, which looks pretty much like this. those of the numbers up there right now. 72 in concord, pretty much right where it should be for this time of day for this time of year. oakland is in the mid-50s, that is a little bit cooler but we started to pick up a bit more of an onshore flow. watch how that system leaves. you can see it on the future cast as the showers all get pulled off to the east. so as that goes, you can see where the rainfall will be over the next few days and yes, looking at the snow on here, just because this might be the last time we get a chance to do this again for a while, there is perhaps another half inch,
more like a dusting, that falls at some of the higher elevations. tonight, so back at home, the marine layer starts coming back. it is being kind of kept away as the system has been around, but as it leaves, and we get back to more normal conditions, the marine layer starts to build back in. we see that tonight and tomorrow morning. it will bring back to the coast so overnight lows, right on the mark, for average for this time of year, right around 50 for most of us daytime highs tomorrow coming into the mid and upper 70s if we are inland. and upper 60s in the bay. have i said these temperatures are exactly where we are supposed to be? there might be a few adjustments, we go up a little bit on monday. but we go right back down again on tuesday and go back up a little on wednesday. none of these are really going to be noticeable changes pick we don't really swing get a big way either way. and, it is late may. there is no rain coming our way in this forecast, either, so that is also typical for this time of year. that is where the forecast stands for now. over to you. straightahead in sports, warrior season is over
