talking about the marine layer, the stratus clouds, the fog ththat gets pulled in this time of the year. if you look from the top of the salesforce tower you see a little bit hugging the coast. that will pull in a little more tomorrow morning. this will not be a gray-out, but we will see low clouds to start sunday morning and futurecast can depict them a little bit there. maybe a little more building in. but whatever comes on shore it is gone by late morning and tomorrow is nothing but blue sky all over again and daytime highs almost identical to what we did on today. low to mid 50s out there. we range from low 50s to low 60s pretty much bay area-wide. we go to the low 50s for morning lows and warm up on the daytime highs to exactly where we were today. saturday and sunday, no difference. however it was today, you are making your plans for tomorrow, plan on tomorrow being exactly like that. things get different early next week and here's i think a real helpful way to visualize the change coming our way.

the map shows you the color codes for temperatures that are either above average, yellow and orange, or below orange. that's all of that cold air we were just talking about moving through the rockies. here at home, watch what happens over the next couple of days. the shades start to really go into the deep reds and oranges. it is showing us about 15 degrees above average. by the time we get to tuesday, and i mean this is not going to be an equal opportunity warm-up if you are near the cost. it is actually going to stay fairly chilly under a scenario like this. just use the city. we will be above average over here, and we will be actually a cool below average near the coast. i digress. what would average even be for this time of year? for inland valleys, 79. look where we will be by tuesday, 96. that's one example of this. it does not play out the same way bay area-wide as we just saw though. instead of going to the extreme at the coast, let's just come back into the heart of the bay and along the east bay shoreline
11:18 pm
and use oakland. watch the average go down. it is only 68 this time of year anyway in oakland. when you warm up and you are 15 degrees or so above average, that only puts you at 84. that's where we will be for kind of -- that's kind of the representative spot for our east bay communities. but let's get everyone on here. san jose, 91. that's where you will top out on tuesday. notice what happens by the end of the week. we are going to cool back down to average just in time for next weekend, which is a three-day weekend. so we'll get a nice cooldown after dealing with temperatures on tuesday that will be within three degrees of 100 for those inland valleys in the north bay. quite the spread in temperatures coming your way. that's the focus on tonight's first alert forecast. clueing you in early to the fact that tuesday is going to stand out, tuesday and wednesday will be quite hot. that's what we wanted to draw your attention to the most. that's where the forecast stands for now, guys. back to you.
