so nice. it's the weekend. why not do it? also, if you are not a big fan of chillier temperatures, next weekend's probably not so hot to get out and do the same stuff. looking like the weekend. don't make any excuses. find a day to get out there and do it. right now our radar is quiet. this how it's going to look all weekend. there won't be any rain we are tracking through the weekend. early next week, a different story. we will be talking about our rain chances coming up in a moment. meantime, let's talk gorgeous fall-like temperatures out there. we are around 70 degrees across the bay area, and we are going to warm up a little bit more thanks to all of the sunshine that we are seeing. this is pretty much the view all across the area. this happens to be from the airport, but you can look up and see about the same thing. clear blue sky as far as the eye can see. aside from maybe a couple of high cirrus clouds, there is not going to be anything going on. so we will warm things up. we will cool down very, very quickly. so if it's date night tonight,
by your 8:00 hour. temperatures fall from 75, 76 this afternoon to the mid-60s already. so it will be chilly. 76 at most is the numbers we are going to see. there is going to be a lot of 73s, 74s around the area. and then those temperatures get pretty chilly overnight tonight, and particularly they are cool as you are getting outdoors tomorrow. we will see 50s for the bay area. low 50s and some upper 40s the nature coast. unlike this morning where we're flirting with 60, we are solidly into the 50s getting out the doors tomorrow. we will be back near 80 during the afternoon. the rain chances. earlier this week we said we thought monday was the day. that timing is pushed back. monday morning we are seeing that rain well out west. overnight monday but especially early tuesday morning is when we are likely to see the first batches coming in.
and it's likely not going to be exiting until at least your evening commute before we can clear all of that activity out from the bay area. so there is a possibility that tuesday could kind of be a washout, although monday we are going to get a fair amount of sunshine in the forecast. this weekend looks great. we will see temperatures in the low 80s both days. then we get the rain chances moving in especially for tuesday. behind that the bulk moves out. we could get a stray sprinkle in here wednesday into thursday, and thursday you will want to take those winds are going to be getting. that's ahead of our next front that looks like it will be moving in friday, and then behind that one, as we look ahead to next weekend, i think many of us won't get out of the 60s. we could see highs in the upper 60s as we look ahead to next weekend. that's why you will want to get outside and enjoy this saturday and sunday. ian. >> all right. we have an exciting day ahead of us. we had an exciting morning. we got to hang out with our 10news school of the week powered by duke energy florida. check out this crowd up with us
