it looks there and how lack of wind it's going to be different the next few days, much cooler, not beach days. no beach weather. for at least the first three days, four days of this week. these are the highest from today. it's going to get colder. we've got that weather system that kind of past bias today and didn't bring showers or anything , but it just brought a much cooler air mass into our region. the high has been weakened now. that was the source of our heating and in this low drops in and hangs out pretty much through wednesday and brings a good shadows sprinkles light scattered showers as we get into tuesday in the mountains will get snow. i mean, six inches, eight inches of snow, maybe a foot. as that thing kind of lingers up there on monday into tuesday into tuesday night, live camera outside. cool tonight. you that's the other thing. we're going to notice much cooler. overnight lows starts tomorrow morning, but significant cooling. tuesday morning wednesday morning with freezing temperatures lots of frost the whole bit and the reason is that system, you see,
it just went right through that behind that. that clear area is cold air, right? cold air is not really conducive to making cloud formation to moisture. so you're seeing clearing there as that cool air settles in over us, and we'll be here for a while. the year for about 72 hours. current temperatures running, let's hear their little chord a little cooler and they were last night this time and then we do this same map that the difference to departure from the day before tomorrow in the departures are going to be 10 degrees can be a big jump tomorrow night into tuesday morning. um and then these are the forecast overnight lows, so just above freezing in the inland bay valley, so you'll notice it when you go to work. go to school, you head out the door the next three mornings, especially tuesday wednesday. jackets for sure. in the daytime highs don't warm up that much, they said. highs are going to be in the fifties. for the most part of this is tomorrow afternoon, so it's nice day. and then here comes those scattered showers from that cold air mass. and you see how it's all just right. you're not going to get
accumulation out of that. not really. you might see a strong shell go over really isolated to two miles by two miles square area, but it's not going to be big aerial distribution of showers. it's going to have a significant measurable rainfall. but it will be called it will be chilly. it will be a little bit damp on tuesday and breezy conditions as we head into tomorrow. so these are the forecast highs, not sixties, not seventies like we've been seeing even though eighties we're back into the fifties for your forecast highs for tomorrow. and in the five day forecast. i wish i had more going on tuesday. i guess the only upshot to tuesday is it takes a shot at that high and weakens it and that'll set up sunday, which has the potential to be bring more rain and more snow to the mountains. so we're just we're just grasp. but it's draws right now, but still changes heather coming this week very noticeable. hopefully, it's the beginning of some wet. yeah we'll take the potential. thanks so much bill. appreciate it. a gas prices continue to rise as crude oil prices remain high amid ongoing
