>> it has gone up pretty quick in the last month, i think it has gone up a dollar at least and it is kind of hard for the pocketbook but it is what it is, can't really do much about it. don't you wish you were at lake tahoe? hours ago in magnitude for .2 quake hit the middle of the lake, set up multiple aftershocks and was felt to nevada. it interrupted a meeting of the nevada state legislature, shaking the plexiglas. the lake has seen a series of quakes over the past few weeks. a 4.7 triggered a shake alert across the bay area, earlier this month. and now, many are wondering if a bigger one is on the way. >> the bigger the for shock event is, the more likely it will trigger potentially that fault that is overdue. >> they will keep happening and we are prepared for it. >> the semi felt of the strongest i've ever felt.

7:16 pm
there for the last few hours but eventually they will drop off and the fog will spread out into the inland valleys by early tomorrow morning, it is going to back up but it is going to take it's time. i think we will see some of that lingering fog release look out cover as we head towards late morning on saturday, and backs up toward the coast, still going to be tough to shake on saturday, but more inland, even along the coast as we head into the rest of the three-day weekends to go along with the warmer temperatures. more on that in a second. temperatures tonight close to what is normal, mostly low 50s, the very cool spots in the upper 40s but that is not bad at all. high temperatures on saturday near or very slightly below average but a degree or two, not likely to notice that. low 60s in the city, upper 60s for oakland, mid-70s and right around 80 degrees in concord. let's fill in the rest of the map. low 70s on the peninsula and one up into the mid and upper 70s into the santa clara valley, temperatures for the tri-valley also in the mid to upper 70s, 80 degrees plus as you had farther inland and east bay come up into the mid-80s east of the diablo range and into the delta. low 60s for the city, then mostly 70s for the north bay
7:17 pm
the farther inland you go, though, the better chance you have of getting into the low 80s, napa, sonoma, santa rosa with more 80s on the map even farther north into mendocino and lake counties, cloverdale and clearlake, 90 degrees already tomorrow but the heat don't doesn't really take over the weather until monday, for memorial day, big area of high pressure pressing down on us and as that air overhead sinks a gets compressed by gravity and the weight of the air on top of it and that makes it heat up so temperatures are really going to be hot for inland portions of the bay area, and warm around the water but far short of record territory for san francisco and oakland for five degrees shy of record in thing is a even though they reach up, short of record territory for the last day of may. type of record high temperature in santa rosa with a high of 99 degrees and the problem is, the humidity will be very low by monday afternoon. the one thing that might help us out, bit of an onshore wind trying to reassert itself and hopefully that will help to boost the committees just a little bit. temperatures to return to close to normal by the middle and end
