morning like santa rosa at 49, napa 46. low to mid-50s through novato, fairfield, concord and livermore. a pretty shot here. santa cruz beach. boardwalk there. you can see it's going to be a nice day with no clouds in sight. but just be careful because we have clear skies now and sunny conditions later. even though it's fog-free at the beaches and temperatures nice, there are dangerous surf conditions through tomorrow evening. keep that in mind, especially if you have little kids heading out toward the water. strong rip currents and large breaker waves and sneak are waves. then it will be even warmer for labor day. we will see some hot conditions develop as well midweek. here's why. we have the area of high pressure that continues to build and we will see summer warmth with a slight offshore flow for the middle of the week, allowing temperatures to climb above 100 degrees. winds are going to be light throughout the day. so here's the forecast animation right now. almost nonexistent. even by the afternoon when we see our strongest winds, the
6:50 am
gustiest winds, even 30 miles an hour or at least 20 miles an hour from the west, it will be very light this average, as well. again, that also contributes to the warmer weather. so that means you will see a high of 90 today in morgan hill. san jose 87 degrees. and santa cruz 88. look for upper 80s, as well, through redwood city into mountain view. and 75 in pacifica. warm and mild at the beaches. 74 in the sun vet district. downtown 79. and you will hit the upper 80s and 90s napa, novato, and it will be a great day in berkeley for the brazilian festival. 79. mid-80s through fremont. and also some mid-90s in the warmest locations like livermore. sausalito and the art festival, should be nice with most temperatures in the 70s all throughout the day, even into this evening. dropping to 77 degrees by 5:00.
6:51 am
around the state, 90s through the central part of the state. through chico, sacramento and fresno. here's a look at the week ahead in san jose. we will be above average about 10 degrees during the week, but not breaking records, and well above arrange into next weekend. you will find that pat western the accuweather seven-day forecast. inland triple digit heat midweek, 90s around the bay and hot weather at the beaches. so stay hydrated. that's probably going to be the most important thing throughout the week. >> good advice. thank you, frances. >> toyota is jumping in with the race for economy cars, and it's not with a tech company. johnathan bloom explains why
