warmer in san jose. so here say closer look or at least a wider look at projected highs for tomorrow. 93 at santa napa and low to mid-90s down to the south bay 91 morgan hill and 85 san jose and right around the bay shoreline, 79 at oakland, 81 san mateo dfron on thursday itareas. lots of upper 90s likely. clover dale high of 100. temperatures will drop just a few degrees on friday but then bounce back up again to mid and upper 90s inland on saturday. here is the accuweather seven-day forecast. and as i mentioned earlier, it's a sustained warmup. looks like thursday could be the hottest day inland in the seven-day period but notice each of the days we expect high temperatures inland to be in the mid-90s, low to mid 80s around the bay shoreline and mid to upper 60s around the coast. steady pattern and it may last even longer than seven days. >> all right. thanks, spencer. >> okay. >> how much is privacy worth to
