5:48 am
back at about 1800 feet. it's allowing for good visibility because it is higher and, in fact, it's probably going to grow a little bit throughout the day today. that means that on shore push will strengthen, providing the cooler temperatures all around the bay. right now it's 57 in san francisco. 60 oakland, 62 mountain view and 61 san jose. 55 morgan hill. and looking at temperatures in our inland east bay, you are clear. but numbers are in the upper 50s and a southwest wind transporting the cooler air in throughout the delta today. looks like 80s will be in the forecast for many of the warmest inland valleys right on through the week ahead. 56 santa rosa, 57 napa, 55 in petaluma. so from emeryville we have the clouds and the overcast conditions. they are going to last a little while. in fact, when we do start to clear, the breeze kicks up and we aren't going to clear totally. we will have a little clearing down through santa cruz. elsewhere the clouds hanging along the coast. but the wind shift and the winds

5:50 am
of the week, but this is pretty typical what we will see throughout the first two or three days of the upcoming work week. throw 80s today should do it in concord. 70s arrive for fremont, san mateo. palo alto, 74 there today. 66 in richmond and only 74 up in santa rosa. 76 for you around napa. so if you are headed to the game this evening, 62 degrees for the giants. dropping into the upper 50s. the sun sets at 7:54. the accuweather seven-day forecast. notice the 80s in the warmest inland valleys. low 70s around the bay. upper 50s all the way through the week. and the warmest day just by a few degrees look to be in the middle of the week. that's kind of a fall-looking outlook, don't you think? >> yeah, definitely. but i like the cool weather. thank you, lisa. unique tributes to bicyclists struck and killed in san francisco are disappearing.
