weather for that. and now at 68 degrees we are going to top out at 68. so right at our high temperature, a few spots may get a couple of degrees warmer with patchy fog as we go through the day clearing out and it will make for a breezy day. into the rest of the week, breezy fog and highs in the 60s there with temperatures staying near average as we go into the weekend. we've been talking about wildfires south of us and how that is impacting air quality. we had smoke drifting in and high levels of ozone. now our air quality has come down to moderate which is a step up from unhealthy which is still not as good as the bay and the peninsula. we also don't have the intense heat. we have winds coming in through the rest of the day from west and more westerly into tonight

which is right about the average for the first of august. high pressure continues and will give us more intense temperatures for tomorrow as well as wednesday. before it moves off and high pressure slides in and low pressure slides in from the north and that will give us the strong onshore flow for the weekend. heat the break and we will have 70s and 80s all across the bay area. looking at san francisco, some upper 60s for the next couple of days. slightly above average but then we bring it back down in time for the weekend once again. low 60s there inland valleys up to 90. still have 90s for tomorrow as well as wednesday. wednesday will be the warmest day of the week. and then we will have a nice breeze and some beautiful weather in time for the weekend. so can you go ahead, make plans to get outside. we won't have the sweltering heat once again we had to deal with last week. back to you. >> kari, thanks. now, you do get outside,

sun shirt you won't have to apply it in their upper body. you want to stack the cards in your favor. we like sunscreen of course because they are physical sunscreens. they have the same components built into the fabric. they ensure their product is water resistant, sun resistant, chlorine resistant for the life of the product. >> which means the uv rating will stay the same as long as you sweat or swim in it. >> for men who play golf, women who play tennis, you can put these on, wear a t-shirt or shirt while you play golf but put these on your arms to protect them. >> all right. let's get sunscreen. are you familiar with the song "free-falling"? i'm pretty sure tom petty didn't have this in mind. >> try going thousands of feet without a parachute and walk weigh without a scratch. you have to see it.
of a plane with no parachute? look at this. the guy jumping out of the plane in green. he doesn't have a parachute. how do you land? you aim for a really big net. the only person to survive a dive with no parachute. there's the net. 25,000 feet in southern california. flips over on his back. into the net at the very last second and 100 by 100 foot net making history in the process. and his wife is glad to see him alive. how in the world he thought that was a good idea to start with, i have no idea. >> if i make history, it is not like that. >> no. >> so word this morning after surge of zika cases reported in florida. the overall number of confirmed case says now more than a dozen.
