here's a live look over san francisco. we can really see the blue skies. temperatures are in the cooler side. we are seeing a lot of sunshine out there. it's still pretty chilly. and temperatures are actually anywhere from 8 to 10 degrees below average for this time of the year. so here's a look right now at temperatures out the door. we are really rebounding. you see 69 in concord. 66 in oakland. 63 degrees in santa rosa. so it is on the warmer side. it's going to be comfortable in some of those inland spots. but cooler for sure around the coast and bay. so the reason for these cooler temperatures is this area of low pressure and bringing some breezy conditions as well which maria mentioned not really helping the firefighting efforts in the santa cruz mountains for the "loma fire." the breezy conditions persist late this afternoon and continue into tomorrow. more clouds and showers are possible as we move into the futurecast. by sunday afternoon, this is our first real chance of some likely light rain by midafternoon so, say -- early
to midafternoon on sunday and then dry on saturday. so if you have any outdoor plans, you should make them for the first half of the weekend. mostly sunshine today, temperatures do remain below average so it will feel like a nice crisp fall day around the bay area and then dry on saturday with that chance of rain on sunday and you know, the latest models are tending drier so we will just kind of have to see how much rain we will get. sunset tonight is at 6:53. sunrise tomorrow at 7:06. and checking those highs around the bay today, mostly upper 60s along the peninsula. 68 is your high in redwood city. 69 in mountain view and 69 in san jose. checking numbers around the east bay, you know, it was in the 90s, 90s in the far inland spots. it's been hot there for a while in antioch, concord, only reaching into the low to mid- 70s. and then hardly strictly bluegrass festival happens in golden gate park on saturday and sunday. but again, with the chance of showers on sunday, your best bet may be to head off to the festival for the first half of the weekend. friday and saturday, remaining dry, chance of rain on sunday. and temperatures kind of holding steady all the way
straight through until wednesday, when we start to rebound, temperatures become more seasonal, what we typically see for this time of the year. >> thank you. citrus with an extra sweetness. here's fresh grocer tony tantillo with our tip of the day. >> reporter: well, today's tip of the day is going to be honey tangerines. they are in the market now a little bit early. let me tell ya, i enjoy them. years ago they changed the name to honey tangerines. they are sweet. besides that, it sounds better than the mercott tanning reason. selection and storage is very important. wonderful. by the way, thin skin, has seeds. but big deal. they are delicious. when you buy them, make sure like all citrus nice and shiny very, very important. now, these may have a little bit of a blemish on the skin, it doesn't go all the way through. heavy for their size. that means they have juice and never store them in the

can often times get on top of things quickly. >> with treatment. >> yeah. so treatment, pretty much chemotherapy and there's different chemotherapy options and i wanted to take the opportunity to say that chemotherapy in animals is very different than in people. they tolerate it very well. we are very wussy. they're very tough. so sometimes owners will be reluctant about doing chemo because therm how their families didn't tolerated it. we don't do that with kitties. >> thank you, dr. chase. if you have questions about your pets health and well-being, just email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. we have some hat may make your day -- when it comes to cuteness. sticking with animals, we have some video that mayic your day when it comes to cuteness. tack a look. 23 panda cubs were introduced to the public this week in china. the cubs are between one and four months old. too cute.
