>> so this is fall? >> it is. >> a lot of people have been waiting for this kind of weather. >> our warmup today quicker than yesterday. the fog shallower, the winds lighter, and that all points to a warmer afternoon, a warmer way to start the week. we are including the work week in this forecast, as well. here's a look outside from mt. tam where the sun is up later and later. 7:05 and setting 5:53. and in the north bay, the 34th annual chili cook-off, where temperatures will be nice and mild there with a lot of sunshine. we have a look at live doppler 7 hd where this is on top of mount saint helena. the low clouds and fog this morning not only confined to the golden gate burks we have dense fog along the central coast. visibility being reduced to about a half-mile. that will continue throughout the next couple of hours.

6:20 am
weak on shore flow. conditions will be a little better in terms of air quality right around the south bay and the coast. our water vapor imagery, high pressure at the lower levels and upper levels, allowing for the big ridge of high pressure to continue to stay over the bay area. so what that will do is bring that warmer air right on top of us and with that marine layer pretty much nonexistent by the afternoon we will look for the warmest days today, into tomorrow. so it looks pretty good out there. if you like it warm. but in fact getting a little bit impressive in the inland valleys. the upper 90s a little hard to take, although with the sun setting earlier and earlier, we will cool off rather quickly. that's the up side of it. 99 fresno, 83 big sur. back home 75 in the city. 85 in oakland and upper 60s in fremont and town by the santa clara valley, still warmer there. and upper 90s gilroy.

fog along the central coast. we have partly cloudy at sfo and that's allowing for the delays of arriving. so temperatures, wow, once again, cool with 44 santa rosa, 46 in half moon bay with numbers in the upper 50s outward livermore and fremont. so definitely less of an on shore push this morning. less fog and that shallower marine layer will allow for quicker evaporation of the fog. then the winds really back off. so we are still looking at a rapid warmup today. hot inland. mild around the coast with warm to hot temperatures continuing for the work week with tomorrow should be the hottest day. tuesday maybe a little bit more of a sea breeze, but still quite warm and eats really not until the middle of week when this ridge of high pressure against to loosen its grip. as a result, bay area quality management has also issued a spare the air day for today with the air quality not so great from the east bay to the santa clara valley and also into the north bay. but with that very, very weak on
6:49 am
shore flow, it's not so bad along the coast. so here's a look at what's going on in the atmosphere. we have high pressure in control from the upper levels of the atmosphere and at the surface. what that makes for is that warm bubble of air over much of the state. while we continue to warm today, we could see record heat east of here in the mountains with a heat advisory near triple digit heat in the southern sierra. definitely not as hot as it could get. with the very, very weak marine layer, it will be looking at a light on shore flow at our coast. so still warm around the central coast. big sur. that's where we've had the beach hazard the part of couple of days with upper 70s in the northern sierra. today once gone the rip currents, the possibility are strong, and large shore breaks. from the natural bridges, twinlation, and it's been this way week after week. keep that in mind if you are headed to the coast. if you are headed to oakland today, it will be warmer.
6:50 am
lots of sunshine out there with numbers in the afternoon approaching the upper 70s with the mid-80s by 4:00. remember with the sun setting earlier in earlier, 6:53, we will lose a lot of this warmth wick quickly. mid-90s for concord. 88 fremont with 75 in the city. we are talking about the polk street blues festival, the last day of that. nice temperatures downtown, 86. santa cruz 93 and hollister. so very little change from today to tomorrow. more of a sea breeze closer to the bay and coast on tuesday. but then we do actually have a weak weather system that heads our way midweek and that brings a whole different story from wednesday into early next weekend. so, you know, you've heard about our 49,000 likes on our facebook page, and they are all eligible, these folks, to center a sweepstakes to win $49,000. if you want to join, just go to and click on the "win $49,000" button.
