4:47 am
in the morning. still warm at 6:c00 at 88 degrees. look at the highs today. up to 80 degrees in oakland. 92 in concord. starting to see some more 90s here and upper 80s for the inner bay. and palo alto today up to 83 degrees. our wind flow very weak today. it's actually coming in more from the north. so only the coastal areas will stay cool. also for san francisco, highs reaching into the upper 60s today. no help for anyone away from the coastline. so our winds will only be at about five, maybe ten miles an hour. we have a stagnant wind. a lot of sun. and some hot temperatures. the air quality goes way down. so i think the air quality will be the worst in the east bay. unhealthy, especially during the hottest times of the day with high levels of ozone in the air. so make sure you -- if you have breathing problems, you kind of spend more time inside and in the air conditioning. high pressure continues to build. it makes it hot in the valleys
