at the coast and the sunshine. looking towards mount diablo. so far today 87 degrees. right now in the mid-80s. otherwise compare that with san francisco in the low 60s typically this time. we should be around 67 degrees. it's now 71 degrees in santa rosa. check out that deck of low clouds and patchy fog now beginning to crop over the golden gate bridge. cannot even see the top of the tower there which stands a little over 800 feet tall so it gives you an idea how compact that deck of clouds is. cloudy and cool at the gates. winds southwest 15 miles per hour. tomorrow we're going to see a repeat performance from today except it will be even be a tad cooler. tonight overnight, with the deck of stratus pushing into the bay and marching locally inland, dropping into the 50s.
