few places got back to the 90s. one place, livermore. in fact, look at this, livermore at 93 yesterday. by monday, this is the cooling that's headed our way. we are talking about temperatures inland in the 60s. so it is going to be very cool once we do start off the next workweek. it is all because of a system headed our way. you can see it across the pacific, the clouds there, that's the next system. we have high pressure in control for the meantime. that's continuing to keep a strong grip on southern california stretching all the way up to the bay area now. this cold front that moved through earlier this morning, it's washing away this moving into the mountains. eventually we'll see high pressure really take control once again. but because that cold air moved on in, and now our winds are blowing right over this cold pacific ocean, we are basically talking about cooling weather headed our way. so today and tomorrow, 80s inland. but hang on, if you live in the coastal areas, 65 in san francisco today. and then it gets really cold. in fact, look at the seven-day forecast. we are talking about 50s as we head towards the coast area.
