there's two more to come. with those areas of low pressure, that will keep the temperatures down throughout the first several days, the first half of the work week. delays at sfo of 33 minutes. mountain view and mid-350's. some of the higher elevations today could see a few areas of some light showers. we are getting a few reports of sprinkles this morning. so with that low cloud deck, not unlikely you could be looking at a couple areas of drizzle. 53 santa rosa, novato, 58 concord and livermore where today you will climb another 8 degrees or so from the current readings. but nowhere near your average high. so partly cloudy skies for everyone today with a possible morning shower tomorrow. another area of low pressure pushes off to the north of us. we will look for a warmer second half of the week. but how much warmer? well, we will get to that in a
moment. here later on today, 3:00, you see a little bit of green from cloverdale and around the santa cruz mountains. that's where you maybe could see a shower. all in all it will be partly cloudy. we get into your monday morning commute. one shower could rotate in. keep a slight chance of a shower in your monday morning commute. otherwise we are back into the partly cloudy sky. the cool days. check out santa rosa, we are in the mid-60s each and every day. then by wednesday into the lower 70s. so we will get rid of the travis by the middle of the week but as high pressure tries to come back, it's not going to come back really in ernest until, it looks like, we enter a new month. yeah, looks like the next nine days or so it's going to stay rather cool. in oakland today, 63 degrees at 1:00. partly cloudy skies. and also around the bay we have upper 50s from half moon bay. sea breeze for you. low 60s san francisco. four degrees below average. with the mid-60s in the east bay valleys.
it's certainly cool out there. 5:05 game time tonight. see if the giants can do it again with temperatures in the upper 50s there. bring the extra jacket. it will be cool, into the mid-50s with the sun setting at 8:19. the accuweather seven-day forecast, little change. maybe an isolated shower here or there through tomorrow. then into the middle of the week, we be still cool. looks like the end of the week, that's the long holiday we are getting into with temperatures still pretty much what you wouldn't like for memorial day. but we will look for warmer weather, looks like in the ten to 15-day outlook. that's when june arrives and that's when maybe it will get more summer-like around here. carolyn. >> a rather cool one when you gather around the barbecue. that's no fun. >> you are right about that. >> thank you, lisa. as we approach the month of june, there is the annual excitement for 2016 high school graduates. at every school one exceptional student earns the title for
