4:53 am
inland valleys. lots of sunshine, just a bit windy in some of the hills so watch out for that especially toward the afternoon. high pressure continuing to build in again now. and this is going to set the stage for a great weekend as the ridge slips overhead. the offshore winds will clear out your skies. that means lots of sunshine and very little fog to speak of after we clear it out. so yeah, it's going to be windy at times but that's about the worst of it. the temperatures will be running well above average and very mild outside in toward the afternoon. computer models picking up on some patchy fog breaking away from the bay area this morning and then by the afternoon even maybe mid-morning it is long gone and then we have sunshine in toward the afternoon and we're enjoying a beautiful day outside. so the numbers going to work out very nicely. let's plan on 67 degrees in san jose today. 67 in morgan hill. about 62 degrees in half moon bay and about 65 in redwood city. east bay numbers running up into the 60s so that means we'll have great weather as you head inland but you have that fog early on and then you have lots of sunshine toward the latter part of the day in much of the interior bay. 63 degrees in san leandro.
