5:19 am
from the bay area. also a little bit more breezy, especially for the east bay. and in two spots, the north bay. and into the day tomorrow we're looking at more of the same so this onshore flow will also help bring us cool mornings but warming up during the afternoons. the air quality today will be moderate for the south bay and still looking good for the north bay as well as the peninsula and proving good for the east bay today. and highs today reaching 89 degrees in los gatos. redwood city, 77 degrees. mission district, 67 today. 92 in fairfield. walnut creek, 90 degrees. starting to see more 90s today and that will be the case also tomorrow for spots like the tri-valley. and high pressure still keeping us very warm and dry. it will be moving off towards the east over the next couple of days. and this low dropping in to the pacific northwest will give us a stronger onshore flow and temperatures will be backing off. so looking at san francisco, it
