of course we have the complete opposite here in the bay area. today was day 11 of our dry weather streak, tomorrow i'm still forecasting more 70s at least throughout parts of the region. right now on storm tracker two, you may have noticed a few high clouds moving through the region. still sticking around down toward livermore and san jose as well. high clouds will continue to be a factor at least through the short term. temperatures from today, most areas from eight to 13 degrees up above the average from today. san francisco topped out 66 degrees. fairfield 64 and san jose in the upper 60s at 68 degrees. the over all weather story is this. for tonight we have partly cloudy skies. tomorrow patchy morning fog. still on the warm side and the extented forecast, a dry weather pattern but changes as we do approach the weekend. so high pressure still in full command of our weather pushing the storm track way up to our north. we have a little bit of an offshore flow developing that's responsible for the warm up but
we have gusty winds developing especially up above 2,000 feet. breezy hills as we head into your tuesday morning. sunny and warm, this is the temperature range for most of the region from the low 60s to the low 70. here's our forecast model just updated. i'm picking up the high clouds right now. put this into motion into the evening hour, some what of a concern will be patchy dense fog developing from the central valley to the delta as well. look what happens into the afternoon hours, not too much with just partly to mostly sunny skies and into the afternoon temperatures will continue to warm up. tomorrow morning, 7:00 most areas in the 40s to right around 50 degrees with patchy fog out there: by 12:00, 57 to 62 with fair skies and then by mid-afternoon there's the eventual temperature range for most of the area under mostly sunny skies. we're talking about a few 60s and 70s out there. look at santa rosa at 70. san francisco just beautiful at 65 degrees. even a few low 70s down toward
santa cruz are forecasting 70 and half-moon bay 64. these temperatures will check in at 3:00 tomorrow afternoon. here's a look ahead. your five day forecast, we'll have to keep our eye on the warm up. by saturday we're just talking about upper 50s and lower 60s. i just took a look at the long range model for sunday and there's a little bit of a shift. they're suggesting the possibility of maybe a few showers that would be a change in thinking let's keep an eye on that as we head into the weekend. >> we're. we're getting to the point that we might need it. >> we do. and the new type of iphone that could hit the market as early as next month.
case so you can't tell if it's white or black. mark joins us now with the best team in the nba in town and we're not talking about the warriors tonight. >> spurs are the team in oakland. they're just meticulous proficient, they are almost boring. they have eight straight in oakland. david lee was good. tops in fact, 31 points his best output of the season. 12 rebounds to go with it. and the shooting kept them in at high percentage shot. 17-7 run, janobli right in the middle of it. and duncan who went down what
seems like a knee injury. back and looking healthy. 38-7 record. the super bowl seems like a long way out. we have two full weeks of hiperbely headed our way. and the packers are the early 2.5 point favorites. a couple of weeks of fill time we have. so the biggest story in the nfl today had nothing to do with the two super bowl team. all talk surrounds around jay cutler's knee. he played poorly before getting injured. but even as he was officially diagnosed today with a grade two sprain acl his intestinal fortitude called into question by several of his peers around the league. former raider and jacksonville linebacker twitted, if my knee was hurt, i would not be
standing on the sidelines. also dalasalle grad and teammate maureen jones drew twitted, when the going gets tough quit. all i'm saying is he can finish the game on a hurt knee. i played a whole season in one. bryan erlocher and his bear teammate says he had no problem with the way cutler handled things. one day the san francisco teams may be back in that super bowl conversation. but for now, probowl game is to suffice. of course corner back nnamdi asomugha is a free agent and shane detckler. that's the sporting life for a
