news. by the middle late part of the next coming week it is going to be get hot again. it is not going to for the rest of this weekend. tomorrow is going to be cooler than today. let me show you the vastly different view from our cameras on top of the salesforce tower. if you look east at most of the bay area this is what we are looking at right now. clear skies. but if we use cara on the other side of the salesforce tower look to the west you will see why we were all able to cool down so much today. the marine layer is back. building and along the coastline. i will show you more in a second. as far as the numbers is 70 in oakland. 75 livermore. concorde got you down to 75. san jose 79. 76 santa rosa. this is such a turnaround. you could not have asked for better timing to have this come in on saturday and sunday. there is a little more to go. we will cool down moore for sunday. we take a look at the clouds streaming in. e p of the tower.
5:17 pm
if you don't have clouds over you yet watch what happens. we take those clouds from now into the overnight hours. by the time we get to 7 am on sunday there is a wide expanse of low-grade clouds. around concorde and even toward fairfield and vallejo. we will wake up to the low clouds that have come in linn. if they can go that far inland that is a good sign. we got some rain showing up here. there could be just a little bit of missed out of this along the peninsula. may be in the marin headlands. that is another good sign. it is a healthy marine layer. that is how we cool down. daytime highs tomorrow these are lower than the ones i was showing you for now. as far as the daytime highs go. it will be 83 for the daytime highs tomorrow in concorde. it was in the middle 80s today. about two hours ago. for livermore 82. we will hit 75 in mountain view. fremont 75 tomorrow. it will be 83 santa rosa. we will keep the numbers in the low to middle 60s at the coast. no big change there.
5:18 pm
the pattern changed on us in such a dramatic fashion in a way if you look at the regular satellite you would not be able to see exactly what happened other than the fact the marine layer came back. what drove that? if we switch from the regular satellite let's get rid of looking at the clouds themselves. i'm going to put on a little more detail here. that is the water vapor which gives you a wonderful view of how the atmosphere is working in motion. look at that counterclockwise spent. here we are in san francisco. there is an area of low pressure right there. you would have not have seen it otherwise. that is helping to deepen the marine layer and drive it onshore. that is how we got a cooldown. across the next seven days we are staying here. we stay cooler tomorrow. there is the warm-up by the time we get into wednesday and thursday. those will be the two warmest days. 95 wednesday. 96 thursday. you know what the temperature is worth this past wednesday and thursday? in the low hundreds. we do have to warm back up.
