have. what we've had going on for most of november so far has been well above average. so, we started to change today. the numbers on the call and the column in blue show you how much cooler the daytime highs were today. from yesterday. so, you see a pattern. san francisco and san jose really dropped more on the locations, right in the bay really felt this more than if you were inland. we got a strong onshore surge, pulling in more of the marine layer but it wasn't just the marine layer. we pulled in a lot of high clouds, san francisco do not get out of the 50s all day. we look at the satellite, you can see all the clouds overtaking much of california. you don't really see much organization, even when i switch this over to water vapor which is does a really good job of circulating where those are, were starting to lose the organization, there's a little bit here, another one down here. this is not have a whole lot of organization to it but it still
has a chance to bring us a few light showers by the time he gets into tomorrow morning. we will play this forward, i'll stop right there at 7 a.m. tomorrow. maybe a few showers along the coast. probably more so down the peninsula but really anywhere near the coast, maybe a sprinkle, about that much rain. and barely will be enough to measure and, it is done by the time we get into the afternoon in fact that gets us to friday. by friday, if you looked over clouds. if we look at the rainfall totals, maybe 100th of an inch percent fail not that that is exactly where it will rain how much you are going to get. this gives you a good idea of why, there's not really a whole lot here. do not be surprised tomorrow morning if the car maybe has a few drops of rain know that it will not be the kind of rain that should impact the commute in any meaningful kind of way. warm anything we pull in the blanket of clouds was to mustang in the 50s and for tomorrow here is what is interesting. these numbers are right on the mark pretty much for normal for
mid-november. the thing that stands out here is how similar they all are. whether it was mid 60s for redwood city or mid 60s and conquered we are not looking at that 20 ll e sunny and warm and hazy. it took a real system to get in here and do it. even at that even with a weather system coming and it's not like were dipping below average, which is going back down to average and not staying there long we will warm right back up going into the weekend which means daytime highs at 80, plenty of sunshine if you are inland and the low 70s for the bay as well, so it'll be like nothing ever happened. and by the middle of next week will cool down again. back over to you.! that's a pretty good weather. still to come the fiery first day of the president's public impeachment hearings. what investigators in santa cruz county are doing to get new clues about a murdered tech executive. the story behind the jailbreak cat. but he kept doing inside it's shelter that landed him in
solitary confinement. tonight at 11, in our series project home, are homeless shelters prepared to deal with mental health issues as well? one mother got kicked out of a shelter after her son had an outburst. she has not seen him since >> i haven't been there to make sure he takes his medication so, that is an issue, i don't want him to get caught up in the mental health hospitals are jails. from wandering around homeless. tonight, at 11, why the shelter says their hands were tied. e: too fat. too skinny. too hard. too soft. too old. too much. too unexpected. too limited. and to them we say too bad. because at kaiser permanente, we believe that everyone deserves the right to thrive.
i am veronica de la cruz here is what you missed if you just now getting home. day one of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry and testimony from the top american diplomat is making waves. bill taylor told lawmakers a member of his staff overheard a call between president trump and the eu ambassador. claims the president asked about the biden investigations. >> following the call with president trump, a member of my staff as with president trump thought about ukraine. he responded that president trump cares more about the investigations with biden. >> analyst say this is perhaps the clearest link yet between president trump and an order to investigate the biden's. republican jim jordan tried to dismiss taylor's testimony as
hearsay. >> he did listen in on the president trump's call? >> i did not pick >> you never spoke with chief of staff mulvaney? >> that is correct. >> and you are their star witness? >> reporter: new video tonight and a big jump in reward money in a kidnapping and murder case and santa cruz county. this tech executive was found that october 1st, the 50-year- old was adopted earlier that day abducted earlier that day., his body, and his body and his bmw layer found, on the road, deputies released the surveillance video of it three suspects near the victim's home. they also upped the reward money to $150,000. and the story is going viral tonight. they are calling this guy the jailbreak cat. i barely figured out how to open a door at a shelter in houston and start letting out all the other cats.'s another cat has been put in solitary confinement and, as you can see, he is deftly not too happy to be doing time. >> thanks veronica. coming up next, if you were
