3:19 pm
share, thank you so much for walking us through it. >> thank you for having me on. okay, so let's talk a little bit about our forecast. paul is here. saw a lot of fog rolling in different places and it definitely felt cooler, as promised. >> yeah, the cooler air that was around the bay and along the coast tomorrow -- or yesterday rather has spread out and will make itself at home as we head through tomorrow. not a whole lot of big picture changes. so fog and clouds spreading out tonight. temperatures dropping down to what's normal for this time of year. as we head into tomorrow, it's cool, rather breezy once again. that onshore breeze combining forces with the clouds to keep temperatures below average. even cooler weather on the way by the first day of the memorial day weekend. then we start warming up a little bit on sunday, a little more than that for the holiday on monday and even more than that by tuesday an wednesday of next week. right here here is all of that cloud cover from space. further inland the clouds are a little thinner and they're filtering the sunshine as opposed to blocking it.
3:20 pm
you can see the brighter white with thicker clouds especially over the north bay and along the coast indicating the thicker clouds that have kept temperatures from warming up much farther than the 60s. clouds will spread back out. this is low cloud cover for the most part as we head into early tomorrow morning. as that packs up toward the coast, the fog will dissipate. we'll see a mix of clouds and fog tomorrow afternoon. i think it will be just a couple of degrees warmer, maybe a degree warmer around the bay but at or below what's normal for this time of year. saturday we'll watch this next system that is going to aim most of its moisture towards our north. it's going to push a dry cold front through the bay area. that's why temperatures will be a little cooler again for the first day of the holiday weekend. there is an outside chance of a couple of showers trying to sneak into the north bay. 10 to 20% chance for northern sonoma and napa counties. that's about the best we can hope for this time of year. as we head into saturday night that moves out. we'll see plenty of sunshine on sunday for the second day of the holiday weekend. looking outside, a lot of clouds, fog, hanging out behind
3:21 pm
the buildings of downtown san francisco. temperatures mostly in the 60s. the warm spots livermore and san jose in the mid-70s, but it's even 67 in concord. you were like 97 degrees 24 hours ago. temperatures will be cool if you're heading out for the first game of the a's series against the rangers. temperatures will drop off into the upper 50s as they head through the game so layer up appropriately. temperatures dropping down to the low to mid-50s by early tomorrow morning. again, that's normal for this time of year. high temperatures on friday, the usual spread that we see from the coast to farther inland, but the warmer spots far inland and the east bay only 80 degrees. 60s around the bay with 50s along the coast. temperatures will drop just a couple degrees on saturday. san jose will drop down to around 70 degrees sunday as that northerly wind brings bay air to the santa clara valley, but temperatures especially inland will warm up, especially by tuesday and wednesday. it will be noticeable around the bay but inland temperatures into the mid and even upper 80s by midweek before we drop off again by next thursday. lots of ups and downs, sara.
