almost 10 degrees cooler, some spots inland today compared to 24 hours ago so the numbers running below the average in fact all across the board 61 degrees in san francisco today, 67. in oakland 72 degrees 10 degrees below the average in san jose 73 74 in concord a little more and a cocker really well down those numbers usually upper the upper 80's by this time of year. i'm not today. it looks like those temperatures going to stay down just a little bit too for tomorrow. follow clouds begin to make its way back on shore 60 degrees in san jose right now 58. in livermore 57 degrees in san francisco cool along the coastline with that patchy fog to 60 degrees and flail 57 degrees in petaluma 60 degrees in the napa valley, but fog low clouds likely to fill in overnight tonight. we're going to see some drizzle along the immediate coastline and maybe even inside the bay tomorrow to sort out some clouds early on in the morning giving way to some partial afternoon clearing. clearing back to the coastline as we head toward the middle of the day and then the week ahead, sunshine and aa
combination of fog. and temperatures will be heating up i think especially in this we're going to see a wide contrast in temperatures by the end of the week. maybe 30 plus degrees from the coast to some of the valleys air quality is looking good over the next 24 hours will see enough of the sea breeze to keep things nice and clear there's the low that i've been tracking here that is headed up on the city's northwest. high pressure to hold on just enough in fact that ridge to the south is going to build in the bay area as we head in toward lot of part of weekend that will start to warm things up but for the next couple days that a storm system will flatten out this ridge somewhat bring some more milk lot of fog in the bay area cool down the temperature so what at least along the coastline is sort of low clouds and the fog probably going to see some drizzle early on tomorrow morning then giving way to some sunshine in most spots accept right at the coastline likely to be pretty great up for the beaches guys back to you lawrence will for the first time derrick coleman, a the master 10 and tobago ship warehouse that caught fire in 2016 killing 36 people. >>he took the stand in his own
