the vernal floor then the destination, yours would be half dome. this is where the little yosemite valley is. it is way up there. up above nevada fall up above 6,000 feet. very isolated. this is typically where hikers camp for the night so they'll start out the hike and they camp there and make the rest of the trek toward half dome. so it's very isolated. very remote and a hike into this region. there's a 20% chance of thunderstorms for tomorrow. only a slight chance temperatures not really the big story. in fact, they've been cooling off right now near 60 degrees. relative humidity right near 70%. winds increasing into the afternoon hours. temperatures there once again in the mid-70s. very dry so the dry weather pattern is here to stay. here in the bay area around the sierra and yosemite as well. we're talking about a warming trend which will boost our fire danger that's all coming up at 10:35. another wildfire outside of
