5:19 am
to five degrees above average. look at all the low 70s on the map as you head inland. that represents the yellow con tour. and the greens mainly in the 60s. so really a pretty nice afternoon. above average for most of you: as we look at tomorrow, the second half of your weekend, more sun. slightly warmer temperatures, taking you into monday very little change. more upper 60s from richmond to oakland, and some low 70s inland. the next chance of rain will get into tuesday night into wednesday. and this continues to look very, very unimpressive. so looks right now like there wasn't be much out of this system. rather dry. but with a clear sky on the positive note tomorrow night we get to look at the super moon, which is the closest to the earth since 1948. that makes it 7% larger than the average full moon. so it's brighter than the average moon and you will definitely notice it out there.
