12:20 pm
they were be a sharp cut off. tomorrow, a figure cloud cover again for southern areas. a couple pop up showers or sprinkles, nothing you want to cancel the outdoor plants over. you will notice the clouds start to break up, so after highs tomorrow in the 50' s, we should be in the mid to upper 50' s with a little bit brighter conditions i the time we get toward the day on sunday. from there, all eyes on joaquin to our south. as you see here, some wave action for us expected as it makes its closest pass monday night and on into tuesday. that is where the trends are right now as far as the forecast is concerned. once walking passes by, we head back to your regularly scheduled october temperatures. 60' s with mainly sunshine expected next week. let' s head to cook' s corner. adam: welcome to cook' s corner where we are in prime punk and spies and maple season, and
