bobcat. >> reporter: police say there have been several sightings of dead animals and mountain lions in the area above cal's campus in the past couple years. residents say deer are frequently seen in the area which is a major food source for mountain lions. with that in mind, police suggest if you use the trails, do not do it alone, especially between dusk and dawn when mountain lions are normally out hunting. don't run if you come in contact with the animal. instead make noise and wave your arms. >> we like living here. we like having the hiking trails and gorgeous views and we accept that we live in nature. >> once again, a warning. if you come in contact with a mountain lion, you're asked to keep your distance and notify police. in berkeley, paul chambers, ktvu fox 2 news. the mountain lion sighting happened at 12:45 this afternoon in san mateo. a resident says they spotted the mountain lion on view ridge drive. the resident's backyard backs up to laurel wood park.
10:47 pm
san mateo police says there have been previous mountain lion sightings at that park. we got the weather to talk about. tomorrow is friday. the weekend close behind. temperatures tomorrow a lot like what we had today. 91 in antioch. that was the high. 90 in fairfield. highs tomorrow will be slightly warmer. i looked at some of the sounding information, profiler information, the inversion is pinching down a little bit. we're seeing a little bit less of a sea breeze which does indicate things will start to warm a few degrees. it's going to be splitting hairs. the real warmup i think you'll notice will be on saturday and sunday. so there's the west coast picture. for us it's just more high pressure. not so powerful that we're seeing what we saw last weekend. remember last weekend? it was really hot. high fire danger, red flag warnings, all that. this high pressure much weaker than that one. the air will not be sinking as aggressively. instead of 106, we're talking
10:48 pm
96. still hot. that's on the weekend. the winds are blowing out there. we've got a nice sea breeze blowing. sfo was almost up to 30 miles per hour. now sustained at 21. no fog really yet. i was looking around for fog on the coast. there's patches of it but not a lot. the model brings it back but if you were with us earlier, the new model run, this thing updates every couple hours and is saying way less fog than we originally predicted. originally had fog coming in here. less fog will warm things up a little bit more. maybe some 90s showing up around napa valley, santa rosa, and certainly more westward progression of the reds, the 90s. that's tomorrow. saturday, sunday will be noticeably warmer. 83 in napa. you'll see that in the 5-day forecast too. these are the highs for tomorrow. look about right to me. 94 in brentwood. a little warmer than it was today. it will be a little warmer than it was today but not aggressively warmer. on the weekend it won't be aggressively warmer but 5, 6 degrees, you'll notice it.
10:49 pm
saturday, sunday comes up, might be 97s showing up. traditional hotspots like antioch and fairfield. temperatures want to cool down on monday which is crucial because you get a bunch of hot days, you want a chance to cool off so the fuel moistures have a chance to recover a little bit. in the fire zones in the foothills, it's just summer and there's not a lot of wind. there's not a lot of anything. no red flag warnings but it's summer. it's dry and the fuels are just igniting left and right up there. big fire. >> the fire is just exploding. >> and the air quality from the fire is becoming an issue too. there's air quality alerts. from a marathon to river life, there are plenty of great ways to get outdoors this weekend. here's ktvu meteorologist rosemary orozco with the weekend watch. >> the weekend is here and here's what's happening around the bay area. the san francisco marathon is
