5:50 am
expanding from the nation's midsection and with that you will notice pretty colorful here with the temperature profile with lots of dark red and that means the 90s moving on in from the central valley. with the upper 60s along the santa clara region. so getting pretty warm here and a few 90s around cloverdale well far to the north. but we will hold on to the 60s at the coast. yesterday 68 half moon bay. so this is the culprit. by tomorrow this trough will slide a little bit further south. that increases the low clouds and fog and a sea breeze is a little more generous. we will look for more cooling around the bay the second half of the weekend. temperatures todd wellemeyer into the upper 90s in yosemite. look for 82 in tahoe. so pretty nice weather there. a few extra clouds around sunday in the northern sierra. 71 in big sur with 101 in sacramento. we will look for temperatures around the bay then about 80 in the city. 74 san francisco.
