sun doesn't really have too much to do with that out there today. when we go to storm scan3, you will understand why, see the streams of clouds already streaming in here, basically, our southwesterly flow around the edge, the back edge now, of high pressure, which is starting to erode, starting to leave, we are seeing again little bit more of the southwesterly component to the wind flow. obviously, wet weather showing up, do not worry about, that really will ends up with clouds out there today. meanwhile, this is the next guy that's actually going to be bringing us our little reinforcement, if you will, in terms of some cooler air, yep, that is snow, up well off to the northwest, do not worry about that in our forecast, but yes, we will eventually see couple of showers if not thunderstorm fire up. here is how it all times out. high pressure today, no worries, just clouds, still warm, at about 80 degrees for the daytime high. that cold front begins to roll in, and actually seymour after turn, a shift in the wind flow tomorrow, help to trigger just a spotty, key word, spotty shower, if not rumble every
thunder out there tomorrow. wednesday, almost the exact same story here, when the front will actually be crossing through, so, that's where you will see your shower or thunderstorm chance come from out of that. but i think if you really want to, you can probably get away without umbrella right through the middle part of the week. the front again very weak in nature. limited sunshine in the meantime today, still warm, we hit 08 degrees, we drop to 62 tonight under partly cloudy sky, so actually still comfortable for you, as women. over the course every time, pretty much the warmest day of the pack, with times every passing day will drop off couple of degrees at least through thursday, we rebounds briefly friday, but that's also in advance of yesterday another cold front. this one will be stronger, and this one looks like it will bring the brunt of its energy late friday night into early saturday. ukee, back to you. >> eagles had an unusual day yesterday in san francisco. do you have win when you are missing most of your offensive line, tough to lose when defense and special teams start you off with 21 points,
