10:35 pm
some poorer quality developing. i think especially on sunday tomorrow, we'll begin to see some haze in your skies, but i think more that offshore wind develops as we get into sunday, so expect that you'll see some moderate condition you get inside the bay in oakland down through fremont and san jose and mount view but right on the coastline. i think we've got just enough of the sea breeze that will keep that air very fresh out along the coastline. so if you want to get some fresh air. they want to be the freshest in the bay area head to the coast that's generally where you can find it. other tonight we are seeing some low clouds and fog moving back on shore that's a good sign if you like the fresh air as well start to feel inside the bay this looking toward sfo out there tonight as that fog begins to thicken up temperature wise you've got 66 degrees in san jose really not a bad temperature for this time of the evening 67 in hayward 67 in concord still 68 in oakland, 64 nevado and 63 degrees in san francisco. all right long range forecast, taking us to the end of summer and well beyond well, we'll see some big changes of course we've got a weak front that
10:36 pm
moved through today brought some showers and part northern california once that moves on through high pressure starts to build on the backside of that and that's why we start to see little bit of a northerly component the winds i don't think enough to mix up the fog along the coastline for tomorrow as we get into sunday, you can see more sunshine that will be warmer day we could see some temperatures pop up in low 90's inland and then after that we switch gears again we've got another weak trough the begins to approach the coastline. and you can see the day after day of the system's kind of rotating over the top of that ridge. then we get toward the middle of the week then things begin to change look at this frontal system that looks impressive right now does the splits before it gets here in the bay area kind of falls apart. but it looks like that will get close maybe some more rain in northern california. but behind that i think we could be looking at some strong gusty winds by next weekend. the first weekend of fall through 1010 we've got a nice weekend ahead. we expect the breeze to pick up a little hazy in spots cooling down your temperatures through the middle of next week. then next weekend maybe some gusty offshore winds and high fire danger in the bay area. >>thank you lawrence other
