>> we may have another update tomorrow. have good morning. we've got a peaceful and beautiful start. look at this shot overlooking san francisco. on this thanksgiving morning. i hope your morning is off to a fantastic start, because your afternoon should be pretty good, at least weatherwise anyway. san francisco will be in the 60s, about 55 degrees. we do have the spotty rain expected for the north bay, but once that clears out, all that will be left behind is some clouds and mild temperatures in the 70s for the south bay.
8:57 am
overall, though, our temperatures will begin to climb in the upper 70s and that incoming rain should move out quite nicely by the afternoon. we can expect to see mostly clear skies and of course those nice mild temperatures that will then kind of move out and in our next rain chance, won't come into play until the end of the week as we head into the weekend ahead. overall today, you can expect a very nice thanksgiving day with comfortable temperatures in the 70s. and then of course we can expect to see some coastal clouds through the morning and we've got snow. if you're heading out for thanksgiving morning, you can expect a nice commute. the rain does move in as we head into the weekend. overall, i hope you all have a very lovely thanksgiving morning and afternoon. you could save energy by
