6:20 pm
but certainly no marine layer yet. 65 in san francisco. 74 in mountain view. 94 gilroy and 63 at half moon bay. and this is a view toward emeryville. once again, all is clear at the coast. 86 in santa rosa. napa, 83. fairfield, 85. livermore at 91. and here's the view from mt. tam, breezy at mt. tam, as you might have guessed. we will see fog expanding near the coastline overnight. cooling continues tomorrow and we'll have a seasonal range of temperatures through the maremainder of the week. overnight, look for fog at the coast and just a little bit trickling out over the bay. so early morning temperatures, about 55 degrees or so, 55-58 generally will be the range. and here's our forecast animation, starting at 7:00 this evening. it won't be until very late tonight that we'll see the expanding fog pushing out over
6:21 pm
the bay. there probably won't be enough fog to interfere with visibility for morning commuters, and there may be a spot of drizzle near the coastline. thought i should mention it. if i don't, somebody will tell me, you didn't mention this. tomorrow's highs will range from low 60s at the coast, to low to mid 70s in the bay. witne wednesday it will get a little warmer inland. low 90s inland on wednesday and still warmer on thursday by a couple degrees, 92, 93 in the warmest inland spots and friday about the same before the weekend warmup comes. notice a rather steady range of temperatures through thursday, although a little bit of an increase on friday, and then a greater increase in temperatures will occur on saturday and sunday as inland highs rise to the mid to upper 90s but still shy of that triple digit mark, which makes me happy.

that's the lowest six-month rating since polling started. among republicans, it's 82%. but just 11% of democrats approve. >> theis divide is important. it used to be about 40 points between the in party and the out party. now it's 70 points plus. that makes it a very difficult process for either side to get anything done as divided as we are. >> the president's twitter habit doesn't seem to be helping, 60% of those polled say they don't like his use of twitter. 65% call it insulting. it appears the republicans' latest health care bill does not have the support it needs to pass. just a short time ago, mike lee announced opposition. that follows a vote delay because gop senator john mccain is out recovering from surgery. the party needs every gop vote it can get.
