other climate forecast. let's start with the weather headline, all about the milder system developing off the north. the key thing this has done is taken all of that hot air from this weekend and pushed it well off to the east. so we can say good-bye to that heat and we'll be left with some morning fog and then some sun for the afternoon. so overall i think some comfortable weather trends, especially as we move into tomorrow. so let's get you ready for tuesday. we'll see that fog back in the peninsula, 59.cover. but certainly the most widespread fog chances here would be acros the east bay. san francisco in the north bay with these chilly 50s. so once we get over the morning i think we have sunshine coming our way through the afternoon and temperatures that aren't going to be too hot. in fact, a few numbers here actually below average as we move into the afternoon. 77 in cupertino. 79 right there in downtown san jose. after low 100s in east bay, we're back down to 82 in concord. 80 in livermore. back by the bay even feeling a
little chilly in oakland at 67. the peninsula 78 in palo alto. you head up to the northern part of the peninsula, and we're down to a chilly 63. it's going to be a lot colder here in san francisco than you have seen lately as well, and that's just because of that colder ocean breeze out of the west at 21 miles per hour, widespread 60s froe marina right down to the ingles side and more off to the north. heavy at 81 in santa rosa, 79 in sonoma and 76 in mill valley. my extended forecast in san francisco pretty simple here. morning fog, afternoon sunshine, 60s as we head through the next seven days. warms up a little as we move into the weekend. inland valleys right now, i have you staying in the 80s all the way through friday. so that's the good part. this weekend it heats up but not too hot right now. low 90s saturday and sunday and into next monday. so got you ready for that bay area forecast, but i want to get you ready for doing any traveling. maybe you're going to hawaii.
we have two tropical systems. erica is a hurricane right now. should move south of hawaii this week. it's tropical storm flossy we're keeping an eye on. once we hit sunday, monday and tuesday, this could actually have direct hawaii impact so start thinking about that if you have vacation in hawaii early next week. we'll have updates as we learn more about those storms. >> that would have to mean adjustments to travel plans. >> right. >> thank you, jeff. up next, not so on a plane that happening now, virtually every upcoming berry event is reexamining its plans. the fremont festival is taking place. they are contacted the police to discuss whether they should be making changes. if you want more details on how they plan to make the festival safer, visit nbcbayarea.com. we're back with more in a moment.
