5:50 am
to big sur and the roof camera. nice and calm. 51 in the city. right now half moon bay has dropped 2 degrees at 59 degrees. 42 morgan hill and 43 san jose. and look at all the lights from the sutro tower camera. good visibility right now but it will be hazy later on today for another spare the air day. low 40s santa rosa and napa. a chilly start up in the north bay. but elsewhere it is milder and it won't take long to reach those readings it into the upper 60s and low 70s. half-mile visibility. the delta and napa. these locations will laying behind in terms of highs today. but napa should warm quickly into the upper 60s while petaluma with a 2 1/2 mile visibility stays chilly and gray. right on through probably 10:00. the rest of the bay, good visibility. and milder readings. the exploratorium camera this morning in the 50s with poor air quality today. record high are likely tomorrow and we will see cooler and cloudier weather next week. the possibility of a few
