5:47 am
sierra nevada due to an upper level low. the sun coming up 6:57 and setting at 7:08. and we'll look for our typical bay area weather for the next couple of days before things get a little more interesting again from another system to the north. so we'll put this in motion for you. and you can just about pick up the low over the san joaquin valley. the lightning strikes there. the counterclockwise rotation through nevada, back through reno, and even into the sacramento valley where last hour we had some showers around the sacramento airport. but in emoryville, it is cloudy and mild, muggy out there with low to mid 60s around the bay. morgan hill 62. half moon bay 63. some of this due to our stratus, our low clouds, and some other cloud cover from that low drifting into mainly our east bay. but it will clear throughout the day today. no delays at sfo. 62 in napa as well as fairfield with the clouds here. 63 in concord and livermore.
5:48 am
so we are looking at that stable atmosphere. again as high pressure building in off the coast, that will allow for the clouds to clear slowly today just to the shoreline. it will remain cloudy at the beach with temperatures a little cooler today. then by thursday, another area of low pressure, a cold front, will be sweeping through the bay area and hopefully bringing us some rain. so there it is. you can see the higher cloud tops here from the thunderstorm activity. and as that low moves out, it really won't be much of a factor in our forecast today. but still some hazy conditions from the fires to the east of us. but overall, this high will build a bit in response to this low here. and as this low continues to churn up, we'll get the temperatures a little bit warmer day-to-day, and then the opposite will happen on thursday. and that means cloudy skies, chance of showers. and then behind it, the area of low pressure keeps the showers going into friday.
5:49 am
so high temperatures today just 69 degrees in southlake, with partly cloudy skies in yosemite. 77 in los angeles. monterey still on the mild side, low 70s. after that front moves through, high temperatures in san jose will be cooler than average with mid 70s for thursday and friday. maybe you'll see some precip here. but we could see as much as a quarter of an inch in our north bay communities. so the rain may be as far south as monterey come thursday and friday. today, though, nothing but sunshine with upper 60s. by the afternoon, low 70s in oakland. elsewhere, 79 san jose. 83 in concord. a little cooler there. 75 in napa. so temperatures a little cooler inland today, and we'll look for slightly warmer conditions the next couple of days. here comes the front. the chance of showers. highs just in the 70s by thursday and friday. so maybe we'll get it right this winter. >> yeah.
