so why we're getting the changes now that i know none of you are probably complaining about because it feels so good. we have this system developing out here in the pacific and the key thing this is doing is helping to get this onshore flow going. so it is this cooler westerly wind that is keeping the fog up at the immediate coastline and that is the biggest thing for tomorrow morning to make sure you are ready for. we have drizzle at the coastline and look at how wide spread it is here through marin, napa, sonoma county and all of contra costa and laalameda county and e peninsula as well and even a little bit of fog down there through san jose. sunshine for the afternoon but with that fog staying at the coastline temperatures will remain cool. check out the morinstd of 70s f you are down to 60 degrees. 58 in the peninsula. south bay at 59. also 62 ith bay. i san francisco sand 56 and for the north bay 57. so tomorrow an enjoyable day.
a few numbers below average here for the south bay, down san jose only 79 degrees. 79 in cupertino. and a little bit warmer there for morgan hill at 86. the east bay, no more 90s. 82 in livermore and 77 vallejo and 77 in martinez. 77 in red chillier 65 in daly city. from the embarcadero to you the outer sunset and the north bay 74 in mill valley and 80 in napa. extended forecast in san francisco. no big changes in the upcoming weekend. a slight warming trend with low 70s sunday and right into labor day. a similar forecast tuesday and wednesday. inland valleys will stay with 80s through friday. go up a little bit saturday and sunday but not too hot. and we'll drop off a few more degrees into next tuesday and wednesday's forecast. so a nice way to end august and start off september if you ask me. the tropicals.
