cool. numbers there in the upper 60s. typically we should see upper 70s this time of year. and in san jose, similar temperatures. upper 60s and gusty winds out of the northwest. so most places inland have cooled down. now, this pattern is going to reverse again during the day tomorrow. instead of five to ten degrees of cooling, we'll get five to ten degrees of warming during the day tomorrow. really wind is the big story at this hour. those speeds 15 to 30 miles per ho hour. about 9:00 tonight, wind speeds should taper off except along the coast and our wind-sheltered valleys, check out these temperatures tomorrow. we had a cold weather system pass by, which is cranking up the winds right now. no real rain other than the drizzle we had this morning. as the skies clear, weou mid-40s in some spots to start the day tomorrow. mostly clear skies. patchy low clouds for the morning and then like today which began with a lot of clouds and some misty skies and drizzle, tomorrow looks mostly sunny. at least during the afternoon, mostly warmer than the temperatures we're seeing outside right now.

seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen is showing those temperatures climb. the heat not lasting long. by thursday and friday, another area of low pressure dropping down the coast and taking our temperatures along with it. so i think we've got everybody covered. if you like chilly weather, windy weather, summer weather, it's all in the seven-day forecast. san francisco may actually feel a little hot downtown. those numbers in the mid-70s on tuesday. valleys, yeah, mid-90s. feels very summerlike as you get into monday and tuesday. wednesday we see those temperatures coming down. i do want to point out warriors victory parade tuesday just happens to be the warmest day of the week. if you're going to head out, probably looking at low to mid-80s around lake merritt, kind of like last year. temperatures will be trending hotter as you watch that big event in oakland. still ahead on nbc bay area news at 5:00, she lost her leg in a rock climbing accident. >> but she's not letting that stop her from pursuing her dreams. the ambitious journey she's
