80s closer to palo alto. hotter day on the way for your tuesday. and for the north bay you'll have temperatures from the 80s to low 90s. as high pressure builds, this layer of cool marine air which is 2,000 feet thick is going to get pressed down. it will see dry conditions increasing fire danger and also temperatures climbing through the 90s. and then thursday and friday things could get interesting as that high migrates off to the north. southeast winds below could draw in some of that monsoon moiser. so the fire threat could be a chance of finding a few isolated thunder showers. and then possibly that approaching thursday. san francisco, starting to see a relatively speaking hot temperatures close to 80 on tuesday. and the valley seeing numbers as
hot -- i think maybe a few spots close to 105 on tuesday. and then a chance of thunder showers thursday and friday. but you see that heat. and here seattle, could be a record all-time high set. >> wow. thank you very much, rob. still to come, full speed ahead for electric cars. the company issuing a deadline for gas powered cars to be gone.
