11:24 pm
you can escape the heat around the coast and san francisco. but in the seven-day forecast, the valleys could see 20 to 30 degrees of warming from the highs he saw today compared to friday. so, san francisco topping out in the mid 70s early next weekend. this is where the heat is picking up for the valleys, low to mid 90s, in some cases, concord and antioch, upper 90s from next weekend into the beginning of the following week. so if you liked the winter weather today, soak it in, because this forecast does bring a lot of heat through next weekend. >> thanks, rob. still to come, an american ninja warrior, the east bay man who is about to make a big impression on the season nine premiere. ♪
