tomorrow. but notice towards tomorrow evening we're expecting the sea breeze to be a little stronger, so a little cooling as we start to wrap up the weekend and cooler temperatures as well in the seven-day forecast. for the morning, 60s inland, areas of low clouds pushed locally inland. and just like we saw today, most of that will retreat back right over downtown san francisco and the coast before spilling inland during the evening hours tomorrow. so we'll begin the day with low clouds, maybe misty skies around the inner bay and high temperatures close to today. 85 around san jose, low 90s closer to morgan hill, maybe not so many upper 90s. concord, 90s toward the tri valley around livermore. 70s around oakland, bay side temperatures in the 60s to 70s around san mateo and san francisco as the fog continues to come in, ocean air conditioning, keeping temperatures in the upper 60s for tomorrow and north bay temperatures in the 80s, though you'll still find mid-90s around ukiah.
here is the interesting change. a sneak preview right now. we're going to see a lot more of this heading our way by monday and tuesday. you see that's not fog. that's high-level clouds that will bring, we think, not only mid and high-level clouds, but look at that, increasing moisture. nothing really showing up in the future cast yet to indicate any showers, but right there, monday and tuesday, that's a sign things are going to get maybe a little more muggy around the bay area as clouds start to fill up our skies to start the new week. so there's your inland temperatures. it's a hot finish to the weekend. but the butte eve livieauty of bay area is you don't have to drive too far to find relief. keep it tuned in on monday. we'll watch how tropical clouds could bring changes our way. >> keep an eye on it, thank you. still

taylor, dj reed and richie james have also been back returning punts. richard hightower says one day someone will have a good day, the next day somebody else. but this year, donte pettis, even though he's going to be a starter on offense is very much in the mix to be a major contributor on special teams as well. >> meanwhile, in napa at raiders camp, antonio brown hasn't been a full participant in practice, and now we may know why. vick tayfer learned that brown is seeing a foot specialist. it is not considered to be a long-term injury. our insider, scott bair is in napa with more on the raiders. >> raiders' defense front wasn't addressed in free agency, leading many to think it could be a team weakness heading into the 2019 season.
