boat we have been in but with snow instead of rain but very little of it over the last three months. we are wrapping up the month of march today. with sunshine overhead, the morning fog was not as widespread, was not as dense. we had warmer temperatures as a result. that is a theme that looks like it will continue into the month of april. the newest outlook from the climate prediction center calls for a good chance of below average rainfall during the month of april. not exactly surprising given that we have not had any since january 1st. it has been a fairly weak signal towards average rainfall, the stronger signal is to the southeast as well as towards stronger temperatures but in general we expect a warmer than average and a drier than average month of april. does not look like the next rain chance will head our time into the extended range of the forecast data, which is always a little bit tenuous. temperatures today close to average onshore breeze, noticeable gust earlier this evening and further inland, those are dying down. we start out with common conditions to begin the day on friday. onshore breeze will be with us once again, the strongest along
the coast, unless you're in bodega bay where it is always more breezy. strongest guest in the 20 to 25 mile-per-hour range along the coast and further inland, 15 to 20 miles per hour. strong enough to keep temperatures near average or slightly below average range along the coast at san francisco. further inland, temperatures will warm up to above normal for this time of your. right now, we are in the 50s around the water but 56 in oakland, 54 downtown. temperatures inland still in the low to mid 60s but those numbers will drop into the 40s by early tomorrow morning, anywhere from 40 degrees in santa rosa to a few spots around the bay and along the coast in the mid to upper 40s and then we start warming up how fast we warm-up depends on the influence of that onshore breeze. by lunchtime, temperatures around the bay will be near 60 degrees, pretty nice for the first day of april. 50s along the coast, you will not climb out of the 50s for highs tomorrow. further inland, temperatures will be in the mid and upper 60s to around 70 degrees already by noon with inland temperatures likely to reach up into the low to mid 70s. 60s for highs around the bay, and along the coast, you will be stuck in the 50s once again. but, at least you will see more
sunshine than you did earlier this week. temperatures will be similar again on a saturday, maybe a degree or two warmer for the first half of the weekend and then we cool off by 3 to 6 degrees on sunday that brings us back down to average temperatures for early april. some passing clouds overhead on sunday but no moisture out of those clouds. cloud cover is still with us intermittently on monday but temperatures will start to warm up for monday and tuesday with the warmest today's arriving by wednesday and thursday, well into the 70s for san francisco and oakland, wednesday and thursday, and low to mid 80s for san jose. inland parts of the east bay and northbay even reaching into the mid and upper half of the 80s by thursday. it is not quite record-setting, but it is abnormal for early april. even along the coast, a light offshore wind will reduce the marine influence and your temperatures should reach into the 60s as we had towards the middle of next week, feeling more like late may rather than early april. >> that is warm. >> it is. yeah. air-conditioner will be kicking in for those inland parts. >> so weird. this is not supposed to be happening now.
it's not july. my boots are staying in the closet, i'm not packing them away just yet. holding out hope. >> thanks, paul. still ahead, the tech tracking you behind the wheel and how california could protect your privacy. ahead in our streaming service, cbs news bay area, we dig into the competing state proposals to offset rising gas prices and we will learn about a new documentary highlighting the bay area as hyphae movement, you can watch our stream wherever, whenever, find us on pluto tv channel 1021 and on any platform using the free cbs news app.
