salesforce tower, a little bit better of a view. in terms of temperatures, mid to upper 50s. watch how the clouds clear out. we'll start out great in the morning. a northerly flow is going to take those clouds and really scour them away. so by the time we get to the late morning tomorrow, by 8:00, 9:00, it's already relatively clear. a lot clearer than today was. so if we look at the forecast for carnival specifically, in the mission temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60s, sunny. those are two things that look fantastic. but read the fine print. it's going to be a bit breezy. 18-mile-an-hour breeze tomorrow afternoon. more detail, watch the high-resolution forecast, see how it's got the mission pulled out? just to spotlight the onshore wind tomorrow. breezy in the afternoon. much windier into the evening. so we've got a 35-mile-an-hour gust as we get towards the later part of tomorrow. the first half of the day should be okay. a bit breezy. noticeably windier into the late
afternoon and early evening. the classic onshore wind, so there's no wind advisories or anything. but if you are on the coast, city, peninsula, east bayshore line, you'll feel that onshore breeze, particularly in the second half of the day. we start out tomorrow morning in the low 50s. daytime highs tomorrow begin to warm up. so we'll be a few degrees warmer tomorrow than we were today. a lot more blue sky. a little warmer. tomorrow's nicer than today. but monday is the nicest day of the whole three-day weekend. because by monday, we get a little less wind. a little breezy but not as windy as tomorrow. it will still be sunny and it's going to be about 10 degrees warmer monday than today. low 70s for many inland locations today. my monday low 80s. low to mid-70s through the heart of the bay. a little windy on monday. that's one final issue we need to talk about here. you see this weak weather system to our north? we were tracking light showers at 6:00, light rain came through
the city off the coast. driven in by that storm. it shows up beautifully on the water vapor. that system is going to take its sweet time to get out of here. as we let that play forward, by monday it is still sitting right here. that's too close. we're going to feel that because it's still there. if we cheer clear away the snow and come back in for a closeup, that is a northerly wind which is the result of that storm just off to our east. when those systems are to our east, we feel it. watch what happens monday morning into tuesday. classic signature storm right there. northerly winds. as a result there actually is a fire weather watch that starts monday morning, goes through tuesday evening. just like the last couple of ones of these, while it does include the majority of the sacramento valley, the focus close to home is solano county. and really, the main threat is the west side of the sacramento valley. west of 5. think of those hills towards the west side of solano county. that's the focus on monday and
tuesday. even though it's an offshore wind, most of us don't feel it. monday's going to be great. you don't have to worry about strong winds. it will be sunny, relatively warm. it will be in the mid-70s for san jose monday. by wednesday, 87. microclimates. you really notice it here. it's going to be in the low 90s by the time we get to wednesday. there is a bit of a warmup next week. but in the meantime, a great weekend to finish out for the next few days. charlie, over to you. a great night in sports. about seven different sports making the sportscast. the opening block dedicated entirely to baseball. we had an insane ending in the pac-12 tournament. the giants, a pretty good ending. they were able to get them on and get them over. but could they get them in when it mattered?
