11:28 pm
the upper 70s to around the 80- degree mark. so it should be pretty nice there. as far as temperatures right now, we've cooled off into the 50s in the mountains, low 60s in spots outside of the district and the bay. in town, due to the warmer waters of the bay, a few spots, which are looking at temperatures in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees. looking at it right now, 72, mostly cloudy. those are high, thin clouds. no precipitation expected. dew points in the 50s. we'll take you down to texas and you can see what's happening there. here in texas, east of san antonio, south of austin, that is harvey. tropical storm now. these feeder bands, these guys are feeding rain fall rates in toward areas in houston right now. really tremendous rain. so you have a flood emergency going on. we're going to watch over here. that potentially may develop into a tropical system the next couple days. that's going to
11:29 pm
northeast. so, that could be a problem tuesday. we'll watch that. around here tonight, you notice the high clouds, that's all we're looking at coming in here, a fairly quiet night. it will be clear to partly cloudy. future cast, spread a couple showers. i don't think that will happen tonight. we'll see a few clouds there with this easterly flow and we may see an isolated shower on the mountains on sunday. for the most part, another good looking day. temperatures near the 80-degree mark. so, if you're headed out to nats park in the afternoon, by the way, we have the game, if you're not going, wusa 9, that's a 2:00 start on channel 9. and the burgundy and gold, they have a game. the weather looks great for both events. for anything you're doing the weather looks great tomorrow. we continue with that easterly push. maybe an isolated shower or two. but tuesday, it all depends on where this thing tracks and how much it
11:30 pm
latest future cast keeps itself east of us. potentially a tropical storm. this thing goes more to the west. it won't be a tropical storm, per se, but we have a better chance of rain. tuesday, up in the air right now. a better chance south and east for some showers here and there. as far as the computer models, the rain share from some of them that are going inland. some of them are going offshore. tropical storm more likely if it stays over the water as opposed to over land, which doesn't have the fuel and it has more friction. all right, for us tonight, it will be clear to partly cloudy. temperatures in the 50s and 60s. comfortably cool. once again, you can open the windows and enjoy it if you haven't already. nice start sunday morning. 50s in a few spots. mainly 60s and 70s. partly to mostly sunny. three-day forecast. isolated showers monday. possible yellow weather alert. 75 though,
11:31 pm
shower. we'll warm it up to 79. thursday, the warmest day of the week and looking good friday and saturday once again high temperatures close to the 80-degree mark. so, 85 is the average and anything above average for the next seven. >> wow. the 90s are gone. >> i think so. >> hey, frank is here. i have to tell you guys, it's a special day. i would like to share with you that it's a day dedicated to greet those that we have been gone for ten hours, even if we are gone for ten minutes. this is my friend's john dog. we ask people to send dogs, she always watches us. and of course, murray. you know that dog, right? this is cristie lopez's four dogs. she's also a viewer. look at these adorable guys. jamie sent me that on twitter and again, john's cute little dog there. i'm not sure if
