for that. halves of course thursday night. we had moisture coming away from the tropical storm that was weakening near hawaii. you notice the system quickly moved into the northern rockies. so for right now what we have moving in is that onshore breeze, low clouds came sweeping in and breezy conditions. but out toward the sierra or maybe to the north of lake county, there is still a slight chance of an afternoon thundershower later on today. but right now 61 degrees, you see the low clouds. marine layer about 3,000 feet high. so when it gets that tall, it has no trouble spilling over the coastal mountains all the way into the tri-valley this morning. we're also seeing allow clouds and 63 down into san jose. you have just some patches of low you clouds right now, sun starting to break through, downtown 60 with the winds still onshore, that will ensure today will probably be the cooler of the two puweekend days.
7:19 am
