cool, coastal breeze that's aiding in temperatures being cooler today. and as we mentioned, a little bit of fog out there, too. that stretches from the north bay down the bayshore to the south bay and in pockets into the inland east bay, too. so the little careful on your drive to work this morning and slow it down. visibility is indeed being affected. now a partly cloudy start to your morning will give way to mostly sunny skies this afternoon. we do have a weak system passing just to our east just enough energy from it for the chance of a sprinkle in the santa cruz mountains overnight tonight. but look at the sierra nevada. some overnight snow this fall up there leading into tomorrow morning for the sierra. now it's not going to add up to more than just a few inches, but certainly welcome considering we haven't had much of anything over the course of well over the past month down this low pressure system. you can see it right here situated to our north, skirting to our east across the great basin and the central rockies going to be bringing some much needed snowfall to nevada, utah and colorado, which are also in
that amidst of drought conditions just as we are here in california, we're just not really tapping into the bulk of that energy from this low. that's finally diving down a little bit further westward. then those previous systems that we're doing anything for us. so we're just barely clipping some moisture, mostly in the sierra from the system later on today into tonight. now, futurecast of winds does sh w this onshore breeze. that's going to be the biggest change you notice today is that we do have a cool wind from the ocean that's going to help to keep us a whole lot cooler than we have been only in the 50's to 60's for your daytime highs today. big change of pace from where we were yesterday, especially on thursday, friday and saturday, which are some of our hottest days with highs climbing to record breaking conditions on each of those days. certainly nothing close to records hanging out in the upper 50's to mid 60's today. hayward union city, oakland among spots just right at 60 degrees today. among warmer areas, antioch at 68 degrees in vacaville at 67. but nobody
getting up to 70 degrees for your monday. now tomorrow and wednesday, pretty level temperatures remain in the low to mid 60's. mostly we will try to get back up to the 70's by thursday friday and saturday, but nothing like we were as far as the warmth goes, that we just finished up with. so a little bit more of a seasonable week ahead of us. and despite the chance of a sprinkle tonight in the bay area mountains of santa cruz, mountains of those flurries in the sierra nevada. really not looking at much to break up the strike trend as far as roadways go this morning. fog is the biggest concern because traffic certainly hasn't proved to be much of anything just yet. 7 minutes from the maze to fremont street. and we are going to be looking at the san mateo bridge likely picking up here in a few minutes. but as of right now, it's a 13 minute drive across the span. now, the richmond center fell bridge a 7 minute drive over it. not talking too much fog up there, but there is some fog on one. 0, one in marine county as you head up towards the north towards santa rosa. james. all right.
