64 degrees. 62 degrees near oakland, along the peninsula that we're talking upper 50s, lower 60s and as we make our way over to san francisco upper 50s maybe even a 60 for the san francisco mark. north bay also expecting to see those upper 50s and mill vale so this high pressure is going to dominate. we've got this dry air mass that's sitting right over the bay area in southern california also catching a break from the rain they saw so we're really expected to keep this high pressure. that's going to keep the sunshine around and those warming temps. if we fast forward through wednesday, long range models are showing a weaker system than what we have seen. that could bring the potential for seeing close to a quarter to a half inch by wednesday and thursday and then you fast forward through friday the majority of those rain totals
