a very hot summer, one of the hotter septembers we've had in recent times for the bay area, and it's been relatively dry october. one storm clearly not suppressing fire danger as we see temperatures start to rise again. 57 degrees, fog free. san francisco. oakland 55 degrees, cooling into the 40s later on tonight, in dublin 54 degrees. in san jose currently 59. we will be waking up to mostly clear skies and cool temperatures. valleys dipping into the 40s in some of the wind-sheltered spots and 50s closer to inner bay. big sports day around santa clara vad. you have earthquakes and minnesota united get into the playoffs. temperature also in the mid 70s around san jose airport. cowboys, about the same time. expect a lot of traffic north of the airport and near the airport tomorrow. temperatures looking pretty good, in the 70s. air quality, by the way, good to moderate around the bay area thanks to the recent storm and winds pushing smoke to the east.
77 for high in san jose. closer to 80 south of downtown. valley temperature also ranging near 80. peninsula temperature also in the 70s for now. always you see the seven day forecast the temperature also climbing early next week. close to 70 in san francisco, and upper 70s to low 80s around north bay. winds from tomorrow out of the north, but they will trend off-shore on monday. we will have to watch the wind speeds because of off-shore winds with lowering humidity levels. high pressure moving the storm track away from the west coast. tuesday through wednesday the temperatures climbing in the valleys as much as 15 to 20 degrees above average. for san francisco, the off-shore breezes mean you will probably see temperatures approaching 80 for the start of the week, trending cooler towards thursday and friday. for the valleys could be getting close to record territory on tuesday. really wish we could get more rain in the forecast right now, but through the next seven days the opposite of that unfortunately. >> keep an eye on that.
