especially during these morning hours because it has been kind of chilly and this morning we've seen a touch of fog along with still ample sunshine. timber on you're getting both right now fog through the golden gate and then sunshine right above you in to run as we work our way through the forecast this weekend we are going to be looking at conditions out there staying foggy during your evening and morning hours and then sting sunny during our daytime hours which is pretty typical stuff for the bay area. actually quite a holding pattern ahead of us in this forecast as we keep the calm winds around for a few more days you're going to be seeing calm winds today tomorrow for halloween sunday's you get that extra hour's sleep and then monday as you go back to work. so no changes. they're also not a whole lot of changes in temperature and that all has to do with this high-pressure ridge that's in place. this is sending any chance of rainfall rainfall that we do need now. well to our north across the pacific northwest. this is actually a pretty standard lynnea pattern what we work our way back into which usually brings cooler and wetter conditions for the
8:47 am
northern tier, the u.s. and then drier and slightly warmer conditions for the southern tier. and of course that's exactly what we've been seeing this fall season has been some generally warmer conditions even though today is a little cooler we're still going to be on the warm side for some areas, 60's for your highs and san francisco as well as ride up and down the coastline. half moon bay at 68 degrees for the high today with a mix of 60's and 70's from brisbane down through burlingame today will be solid 70's from san mateo through mountain view at 73. redwood city at 74 well foster city at 75 today. temperatures in the south bay backing off yesterday's warmer daytime highs a bit down into the low to mid 70's for most areas, no 80's left in the tri valley today, it's back to the upper 70's in dublin pleasanton livermore low 70's in union city hayward and fremont well upper 60's in berkeley or 3 spots holding on to the 80's danville walnut creek in concord today. temperatures in the north bay also out of the 80's fairfield vacaville into the upper 70's
8:48 am
at 79 degrees. each while a few 60's right along the coastline for areas like point raise in stinson beach. here's a look ahead at your next 7 days. i mentioned this is more or less a holding pattern of not a lot of changes and you can see that playing out here pretty clearly in your forecast. today inland are only day with inland temperatures averaging out in the upper 70's for bayside areas, it's solid 70's and coastal areas in the 60's 80's do return for inland spots saturday for halloween and sunday you get that extra hour of sleep. so i know this year looking a lot different for you in the family's far as halloween goes. but at least we've got some nice weather to celebrate. robin and some nice traffic too because we don't have any major hot spots working right now, but it is a little foggy for some of you, especially our traveling from the north bay to san francisco here at the golden gate we do have a dense fog advisory that was issued by chp the traffic continues to move well right no major issues 20 minutes for your drive time that's really quick. the richmond sandra fell west 5.80 winding down
