5:19 am
morning, though, subtle changes with the fog burning off quicker and 55 by the delta. it's clear therels clear in concord, everywhere else holding on to the cloud cover and 58 in livermore. we're cooler this morning, two to four degrees cooler and that's due to some of the cloud cover and we're looking at that clearing and perhaps giving us more sunshine and we're looking at the poor air quality again today. midwestly cloudy this morning and warmer throughout the afternoon and mainly in our east bay valleys, but we will hang on to the clouds at the shoreline and we're looking at temperatures remaining below average into next week and of course, we're looking at the labor dai holiday into next week, as well so not looking warm at this point. 7:00 this morning see the fog into the east bay, the north bay and it clears just to the shoreline today. we'll take it through tonight and then into early tomorrow where once again it comes back and hangs out at the coast. so we'll be looking at partial
5:20 am
clearing around stenson, ocean beach and temperatures in the 60s there. in the south bay, numbers below average. average high for this time of year in san jose should be 82 degrees. we'll be shy of that in the 60s throughout the 10:00 hour. upper 70s should do it by the afternoon. so we're certainly a few degrees below average, but in our inland, east bay, temperatures coming up a few degrees into the low 80s, but once again, you'll notice those hazy conditions and the numbers drop off and as we enf theekt doesn't look like we'll shake this pattern up in the near future. look for 75 in redwood city, and partly cloudy, san francisco and 67 and in the north bay, 80 in santa rosa and 74 for you. 82 in pleasanton. if you're headed into the city, it will be in the low 60s for the jeengiants game.
