heading into tomorrow's forecast. here is a look at mike weather for friday. south bay 77. in cooper teen owe a little warmer in morgan hill once you are away from the ocean breeze at 82. for the peninsula any are where from 63 in half moon bay to 74 in palo alto. 64 in the marina in san francisco, and then a few degrees there in the financial district to 67. for north bay, east bay and tri-valley temperatures right near average here. in napa 82 degrees. best weather in oakland with 72. let's go ahead and get you to potentially some traveling issues if you're heading to the east coast the next threw days. tropical -- what is, excuse me, hurricane hermine, it has already made landfall and we expect it to stay a tropical storm through tomorrow over georgia, which is remarkable it is keeping this kind of strength even though it has moved in. usually the friction of the land helps to weak enstorm systems. again, it is a tropical storm over georgia.
what happens beyond that? it rides up the atlantic seaboard, exits south of delaware by sunday. flooding will be biggest threat along interstate 95 corridor. again, looking at two to maybe 4 inches of rainfall on average. for hawaii, this hurricane will stay north of maui, honolulu and kuai, if you are headed to the islands you missed a direct hit with the storm which is great news, but still rain and wind to contend with. watch storm track very closely. a shift to the south of this and we could be looking at drastically different conditions. as we look at san francisco's numbers, low 70s, eventually returning by tuesday, wednesday and thursday of next week. inland valleys 82 tomorrow, down to 79 on saturday, then by labor day up to 84. then it really starts to go up by next tuesday, wednesday and thursday. look, nothing the bay area can't handle. there's no 100s on here so i know you're happy at home. >> we are happy. thanks, jeff.
