8:20 am
light shower tomorrow morning, then back into the sunshine. here is why, high pressure is holding on for another day, then the front is going to push up to the north of us and that will allow for the high pressure ridge to weaken and the tail end of this system pushes into parts of the bay area. so the moisture from it is coming partly from this system here, which is still a category 3 hurricane olaf sorks that continues to weaken into monday and tuesday, then it gets entrained and pulled up into a frontal band that will push into the bay area, really northern california, some tuesday, tuesday night into wednesday. so we are looking at anywhere from maybe a quarter of an inch of rain, it was looking more promising before, we will still have to wait and see how it plays out. 79 today for san carlos, upper 70s for palo alto, look for 65 in pacifica, san francisco above average, even with the cloud cover, 75 in petaluma, look for more mid 70s from oakland to berkeley and richmond today, 82 pittsburg and fairfield.
