11:17 am

11:18 am
not today, kari. >> not today, we have a few more days of really warm temperatures and we reached the peek of the heat on tuesday, but we are still in with some well above average temperatures in many spots could be setting some records again today. so as we take a live look outside in downtown san jose, it's 77 degrees there. and then we move on over towards this side, my camera went out there, but it was very nice shot. it's 68 degrees as we take a live look outside at tiburon, nothing but clear skies and then we want to talk about the possible record today and how close we'll be in some spots. so i think concord could set a new record today. we'll be well below in san francisco, but livermore may tie the record and we may also tie the record in san jose. so we know it's not supposed to be this warm. we were talking about some low 90s in the south county and in a gilroy today, expect a high of 92 degrees. cooper tee know will be up to 87. and we'll have some upper 80s to
11:19 am
low 90s from danville over toward antioch, 87 degrees there, also 87 in fremont and for san mateo, 85 degrees today. we may make a little bit of progress towards some slightly cooler temperatures today in half-moon bay, but it's all dependent on those winds and the small shift can make all the difference and how quickly those temperatures rise. in the marina district, 82 degrees in engelside, 80 there. and napa today, 88 degrees. so if you're getting ready to head out. we'll be at 79 degrees and then slight warm-up by 1:00, 2:00 we're at 81 degrees. so, i think for a lot of people you just get that sandwich and head back into the office. and if you could make it a beach day, it's going to be really nice in santa cruz right there along the water. our temperatures making it up to 80 degrees and cooling back quickly as you get ready to head back over the summit and then most likely at that time, you'll go sit in traffic.
11:20 am
we will have those temperatures that will be in the upper 80s in the south bay for the rest of the afternoon. we see them how quickly those temperatures jump up. for the rest of the day. now san francisco will keep those well above average temperatures through at least saturday, we'll be up to 73 degrees. still a really nice weekend. and then we get a bigger cooldown on sunday into early next week and it's just in time for halloween. and then looking at the inland areas into the upper 80s. few spots reaching the low 90s and 85 degrees on 76 degrees, now that is going to be a big improvement over all the warmth we've had all week. next week looks much cooler, unfortunately, there's not a drop of rain anywhere in this forecast. we will take a look at some things going on around the bay area for the weekend. that's coming up a little bit later. >> sounds good. >> look forward to it. warriors star clay thompson had some very special guests during last night's game in oakland. i'll let you in on why each of

october. can't even believe that we're about to start talking about november now, but it looks like that'll be our next chance of rain not until late next weekend. so here we are with temperatures now in the mid-70s as we take a live look outside in santa rosa, mt. hamilton, with those temperatures there in the upper 70s and then looking live in sunol, it's 72 degrees. as we look at our high temperature for today, some low 90s in east san jose again. pretty much like it was yesterday, our temperatures matching where we were for yesterday's high temperatures, and in livermore, expect a high of 90 degrees. we are going to have those upper 80s and low 90s all around the bay area if you're not along the immediate coast, it is going to be really toasty today. and reaching into the low 80s in san francisco once again, and for the north bay, upper 80s there for this afternoon. in spots like half-moon bay, you will have a great beach day, highs reaching into the low 80s
11:46 am
by 3:00 and then cooling off quickly once we do get a little bit more of that ocean breeze kicking in. we'll go from the low 80s to the low 70s in a matter of a couple of hours. bring a jacket just in case. and then in napa valley, that slow down, the cooldown will be a little bit more slow to happen. after sunset, we'll reach into the low 80s after peeking near 90 degrees. now for that commute for the afternoon through the east bay, as you get ready to head out for your lunch hour, it's going to be in the low 70s, but then look at the difference by the time you get off of work in the upper 80s. so, a huge difference there with the warm-up happening in a snap for the afternoon. you're already making plans for the weekend, so checking out a couple of the places you may be heading in santa rosa, the pumpkin patch on saturday, it's going to be a nice place to be during the morning hours. that'll be when a lot of people get out there. it's going to be in the upper 60s to start and then some upper 70s by 2:00 in the afternoon. we'll hit that high temperature
11:47 am
around 4:00 with 82 degrees. and then it cools off nicely after going to the evening. we have a lot of hours there, so enjoy your time outside. maybe not pick the hottest hours of the day. looking at san francisco today, a few 82 degrees and then 77 degrees tomorrow. we will have much more of a cooldown, especially by the end of the weekend, and also into early next week. while the inland areas will be a near record highs again today, we'll be up to 85 degrees on saturday, and mid-70s on sunday. so that's when you'll really notice the difference. we'll bring it back closer to where we should be for average for this time of year. as we look forward to halloween, it's going to be in the low 70s for the interior valleys and those morning temperatures will really be cool. really talking about some upper 40s, but as you can see, there's no rain here, looks like the mold held off until late next weekend. we'll continue to monitor that. it's been a very dry october. >> thanks so much. but look at this, this is what we're anticipating, right? for this winter, maybe, well,
