6:47 pm
was going to warm up, but it was a cool breeze outside. as we get a look at your microclimate forecast right now, it was comfortable outside. we certainly have a lot happening in the atmosphere. let's go ahead and get to san francisco right now. it is more of a low cloud situation right now. humidity at 63%. so we do still have the marine layer at the coastline that will usher in fog tonight, and temperatures will be dropping in the 50s real fast. as we take you to typically one of our hottest locations, we have high clouds streaming across in concord. a high of 84 degrees. right now 79. check it out, 60s expected by the 8:00 hour right into 9:00 p.m. it definitely will be a night where a lot of you can leave the windows open and turn the acs off. on the scanning doppler radar we have clouds moving in along with satellite mixed in here, and a few spotty areas of rainfall developing off-shore. nothing major, but there certainly are a few waves in the atmosphere woe have to watch out

6:49 pm
60s. our best chance of any kind of activity again firing off would be the north bay. we've kind of honed in here on santa rosa. that's where we might get some of the instability firing off. a slight risk of thunderstorms, an 80, but towards mill valley 74 and partly cloudy sky. east bay, oakland 71 degrees, towards walnut creek 86. for tri-valleys, sure it will be warm but not above average and certainly no 100s. the main reason we will see no major august or early september heat coming our way throughout the next three to five-day period, this huge trough of low pressure sets up across the pacific northwest. jet stream sinks to the south, and you will love what this will keep the temperatures at across bay area. san francisco stays in 60s, and that's around where we should be. for the inland valleys, no 90s this week. we will be down to 79 for the average on thursday, friday 78, saturday 80. by next monday we go back up to
