in from the pacific northwest. so we'll take you outside and there much more enjoyable weather currently south bay at 73. 68 for the peninsula. 60 in san francisco with the foggy wind. and. >> narrator: north bay at 74. tomorrow more sunshine for some of you than others. so let's break it down.bay at 7. tomorrow more sunshine for some of you than others. so let's break it down. we'll have partly cloudy skies in the south bay and 54. but east bay and san francisco, expect the areas of fog and temperatures in the low 50s. so what about friday's forecast? it will stay just as beautiful as it was today. that means in the south bay san jose at a 76 degrees. close to 80 in morgan hill. for the peninsula, palo alto, atherton, mid-70s. but then you head a little further up the peninsula towards san mateo and we'll be colder, 67. san francisco, 66. financial district.
colder micro climate, 62. for the tri-valley, we eek out one more comfortable day here across danville, livermore, temperatures in the mid to upper 70s. for the east bay, walnut creek 78. and then oakland at 70. so again, it's all about the area of low pressure in the pacific northwest hoping to bring the cooler weather. tomorrow this begins to move to the north and also the east. so again, mild on friday, but then another change by the weekend. look, i wish this area of low pressure would just stay and hang out the next five days or so so it would be enjoyable but high pressure set to build in for saturday and sunday. and that is officially going to bump the temperatures up. so i want to get to that next. and you'll be able to see the trend here. south bay, 77 on friday. saturday 83. then by sunday, 87. tri-valley good l. go from 78 on
friday up to 88 on sunday's forecast. so dry sunny and warm through the upcoming weekend. and what about our rain prospects? we mentioned that. it doesn't look great. el nino continues to fade, so that will set us up with typical dry summer months. 75% chance it could develop into fall or winter. not a lot of help on the forecast, but we will track it very closely over the next several months. let's hope el nino does bring us more rainfall obviously. up next, we're counting down of course the sharks stanley cup final. but right now what are they billion.
