so we will call it partly cloudy throughout the afternoon today. more sun, milder in the next couple of days. rain returns. looks like by about friday into next weekend. and there should be a couple of systems after that. so this morning we have some fog, and also a few showers here verifying from this forecast model. then as we go through the 11:00, 12:00 hour, some sunshine. we will see a few more clouds around the north bay and by the afternoon temperatures should be pretty comfortable in the 50s to near 60. but rain chances, not really for the next several days as high pressure begins to build in. so with the higher pressure pushing down on the atmosphere and some of that moisture, we will have some foggy mornings in some spots. in the northern sierra, about 40. you could see some of the snow tonight. 45 in yosemite. southern california still a concern tore that large westerly swell. still very dangerous conditions here with mid-60s in los angeles. the snowpack is very good all throughout the state.

the north he were sierra 124%. you can see pretty good even down to the southern sierra. so looking at 113% of normal compared to 30% a year ago. so we will be looking at more snow in the next week, but as for today, things will be quiet. we will look for partly cloudy skies. temperatures ranging from the mid-50s at the coast. maybe an isolated sprinkle late in the day in the north bay. otherwise about 60 in oakland. 58 in san jose. 57 in morgan hill the and the accuweather seven-day forecast looking at temperatures today pretty mild but look what happens as we get more sun throughout the afternoon. the next couple of days. we will see low to mid-60s for monday and tuesday. wednesday and thursday mid-and upper 60s. and then by next weekend look like rain. so very typical to have a little bit of a break during the winter with some dry weather and looks like we're not shutting anything off. sometimes when we have the dry spells it's like, oh, it's normal, no more rain, but it's
