in that area. it is not a wildfire nearby. it is coming from hundreds of miles away. and so as we head out around the afternoon, we're going to have some unhealthy air quality at times aalso causes the ozone that we produce in the atmosphere to get trapped in some of the valleys. and with a high pressure pushing it down, temperatures go up, twe 93 degrees in the middle of the day. and normally we're seeing high temperatures around 82 degrees so we're running about 10 to 11 degrees above normal for the rest of the afternoon. our high temperatures in the south bay may be as hot as 96. that is what we're going to see today in gilroy and our winds coming in from the west to 10 m. but we will also see some triple-digits, concord, pittsburg and san antonio and vallejo topping out at 90 degrees. for the coast, half moon bay close to 70 degrees.

of pollutants we're putting in the air. tomorrow is going to be even worse. we do have a heat advisory that will be up for the inland parts of the north bay and as well as the east bay as our temperatures reach up to 104 degrees. and still very hot on thursday. we're seeing the heat backing off just a little bit on friday. but we do have some bigger relief on the way for the weekend with some mid-80s in the forecast and the valleys. for san francisco we do see more mid-80s. could possibly in a few spots reach near 90 degrees tomorrow. and then we'll come back to the 60s as the fog and the clouds return for saturday and sunday. so just a few more days, laura for much of the bay area. e heat >> a little cooldown for the weekend because coming up, we're wog shelters. coming up next, a lovely four-legged friend you could help find a forever home. but first, happening now, new news and happy news for santsoya brown. she tied the knot with recording
