if he wins as we heard earlier. let's talk about how things look out there as far as the big drop in the temperatures today. that is the numbers i have got in the column on the left there. san francisco, the winner if you want to call it that, 12 degrees cooler today for the daytime high. you notice the theme here? if you were in the bay you got the big drop in temperatures. if you are inland, a cooldown, just in a cooldown as dramatically as it did we really felt that the onshore flow and the marine layer come in and the cooler air. those are the daytime highs we only got up to 57 in san francisco, bean ball 73 for the daytime high in concord. as we get into tomorrow, these numbers will come a lot closer and by that there's only going to be a couple of degrees difference from this weather pattern speaking up. speaking of which, look how this played out it takes us back to that:00 in the morning. look at the marine layer surging it from the golden
gate, piling up on the east bay hills. we started out with a pretty simple pattern. once we got into the late morning and early afternoon we started to bring in the layer cake of clouds which just kind of made the whole thing a bit tougher to figure out but we still have the marine layer. we are just covering that all up with the higher clouds coming in from this next system that gives us a small chance of rain tomorrow morning. you can kind of make it out there but if you look at on the regular satellite, you don't necessarily see a whole lot of organization. you can see a counterclockwise is been, doesn't show up as clearly as it did yesterday but you can still pick it out. that is our chance for rain tomorrow. it's also the reason why the onshore flow turned on, why it was so cloudy today. why we are going to be so much cooler. but if we switch from the live satellite and put this into the futurecast and bring this onshore, there is our chance of rain that is tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. there are just a few light showers showing up off the coast. as we played at three by the time you get into the afternoon, that is done. don't count on much rain from this. but, it'll look kind of stormy, it'll certainly feel cooler because we are going to have to
experience average temperatures for the middle of november. a few leftover clouds on friday but by friday late in the day we clear this out. the weekend will bring us right back to the sunny, and well above average. if you like that, there is more coming. as far as the slight chance of rain, there are the totals. it'll be helpful if you are near the coast and want to get any rain out of this. it doesn't have any big impact on the commute and we don't get a lot but, to be surprised. tomorrow morning you made notice a drop of rain and it could even happen as early as tonight if you're near the coast as the marine layer deepens. will probably bring a few light showers. let's talk about daytime highs as a result of all of this. we would not only get back to average but, we are going to really level the playing field. you were not going not going to see much difference from one part of the bay area to the other. it'll be 60 a morgan hill that'll be our warm spot. concord goes to 66, walnut creek is 65.
we are going to go back over here, a lot of low to mid 60s, not a big change. as we work our way up north let a squeeze in mendocino and lake counties going into the mid 60s. that is thursday. let's take a look past that now in the seven day forecast. friday is kind of a rebound day. remember? few clouds left over on friday but we start warming backup, and by the weekend, it's like it never even happened. sunny and 80, right back into november that you have come to know and love so well. it is not done yet. we are still looking at temperatures well above average and it'll be a great weekend if you want to get outside for it, and then by the middle of next week into the upper 60s. no real significant chance for rain on that one. c with more on this later. see you with more on this later. a sneaky shelter cat cannot be contained he will start busting out his feline friends. wait until you try to hear how
