5:20 am
talk about an 8th mile visibility at the airport, quarter mile santa rosa novato. and by the delta. san jose some thick fog for you, half moon bay half mile visibility. a little better right now in livermore and mountain view but things will change throughout the morning hour. we will look at definitely a gray start out there and the sun really not until the afternoon. right now 48 in san francisco. good morning concord, 46 for you. 43 livermore. so above the fog we have the clearer sky. we have to burn that back. once it evaporates we'll see mild conditions this afternoon. still the fog will linger i think in the east bay by the delta but we are still talking about a dry weather forecast right around through next week. so we're looking at high pressure once again keeping the storm track to the north and weak system today allowing for the dewpoints and temperatures to be just about the same and that is allowing for the dense fog across the bay. once that burns back we'll see temperatures on the mild side in
5:21 am
the 60s, overnight lows on the cool side. looks like this pattern will hold into next week. high temperatures today and across the state with that weak system some rain to the north in eureka 59 there. more clouds in tahoe with 54 the northern sierra. mid-50s sacramento. southern california enjoys lots of sunshine, 81 degrees. today we'll see numbers fairly similar to yesterday maybe a degree or two cooler in the south bay. remember, you've got that fog this morning. 64 later on in santa clara. peninsula looking at numbers in the low to mid-60s throughout the afternoon today. so nice looking day. this morning gray skies. poor visibility. then by about 1:00, 2:00 the ceilings will lift and we'll look for 63 in san francisco. 70 yesterday in santa rosa. so today with that dense fog, maybe 2 degrees cooler upper 60s for you. 64 san leandro. so this morning we are going to be looking at poor navigating.
5:22 am
we had that problem yesterday on 880. so if you're traveling out there, do be careful. 58 antioch and brentwood. looking at the fog to continue to sit here throughout most of the afternoon. down by the monterey bay, still nice. heading towards watsonville and salinas at the high of 70. the high tomorrow looks a little warmer. we'll see us gain a few degrees and actually tuesday wednesday drier winds less fog, slightly cooler. you can barely discern the differences. all you see is the sunny days and minor differences. fluctuations, that's the way we're gonna take it. >> after all that rain nice to have brake like that. thank you, lisa. these folks have quite a story to tell this morning. 85 people got stuck this weekend on a ski lift at an ohio resort. they've been safely rescued. the lift stalled yesterday afternoon at alpine valley a 125 acre ski resort east of cleveland. the skiers were dangling in

5:44 am
afternoons the cool nights the morning fog. once the system pushes on through, i think we'll see more of a northerly wind and the atmosphere getting more mixed out. today should be the worst day in terms of the dense fog out there. if you're headed to the mountains, you have to contend with those soupy conditions 55 sacramento. the rain is to the north and eureka. 54 tahoe. mid-50s fresno and los angeles once again enjoys numbers in the lower 80s. today palm springs, 81. 73 san diego. so temperatures today in the mid-60s to low 60s around the water. 63 in sunnyvale. nice day today san mateo but lots of fog earlier on. downtown airport delays through the morning hours. low 60s throughout the afternoon and in the north bay that fog sitting for a while. instead of those 70s, 65 sonoma, 63 san rafael.
