5:21 am
even concord to the upper 30s. livermore, 30 degrees. forecast highlights, chilly to the north, coastal clouds from san francisco, across the golden gate, into the north bay. sunny and mild for the next several days. looks like now instead of becoming likely rain wednesday and thursday, we're back to more of a chance, so still looking like it's changeable and i'll explain why in a minute. the weather that brought the rain and snow to southern california, moving east. with high pressure dominating much of the west coast, we are sunny and mild again today. and here is the outlook then for thanksgiving. it's a cut-off low and the further it stays offshore, obviously, the less chance of rain we have. now it is looking like it's going to stay offshore, but we're still keeping the chance of showers in the forecast for wednesday and thursday, because things do change, but not as robust and not as promising as it was a couple of days ago.
5:22 am
so we'll keep an eye on that for you, but in the meantime as high pressure continues to build, we'll have another pleasant day today with fair skies. and look at the numbers, we're talking low 60s half-moon bay, san francisco, 62. head up to the north bay, from freezing to 65 in santa rosa, so certainly mild this afternoon. 64 in concord, fremont, morganhill. san jose, numbers in the mid 60s. here's the seven day forecast with temperatures ranging from 60 at the coast with the sea breeze. on monday, no changes there, as well as tuesday. wednesday, we're looking at just a chance of rain that continues into thanksgiving and perhaps maybe thursday morning, but otherwise, a ridge builds back and that means more fair weather friday and saturday. so not looking too promising, just the cooler weather will be with us for thanksgiving. abc 7 news is another great weather resource for you to

well, we are about to officially kick off the holiday shopping season, and with it comes the controversy how companies should label their ads. one local retailer is in the middle of the controversy over merry christmas, versus happy holidays. it's the busiest shopping time of the year, and when retailers try to lure consumers, the american family association wants their advertising to say "merry christmas" rather than "happy holidays." we talked with the president of the conservative organization via skype. >> people buy gifts for christmas, and that's a tradition that we exchange gifts on that particular day, so there's nothing wrong with acknowledging christmas in your promotions and in your advertising and your greetings. >> his organization issues an annual naughty or nice list of companies, and for the first time, san francisco-based gap is listed as nice. no decorations up yet at the
5:46 am
stores we stopped by, but wildman is declaring victory for a policy change after years of talks with the gap. >> they are going to make a conscious effort to say merry christmas in their advertising and stores. >> gap is not admitting to bowing to pressure, simply saying in a statement, this season we're including a number of seasonal greetings, such as merry christmas, happy hanukkah, and joyous kaun za. >> i go to happy holidays, you know why? in this community, there are thousands of muslims and jewish people. >> shoppers we talked to seem fine with either greeting. >> i don't really see it -- to me, it doesn't bother me either way. i can say merry christmas or happy holidays.
5:47 am
or, i don't know, something in another language. >> and, by the way, we saw a gap commercial from last year and it included the words merry christmas, along with other holiday greetings, including happy qwanza. by the way, hanukkah is on the same day as thanksgiving this year. >> early, right? >> yeah, yeah. >> we have it all for you, too, in terms of the weather. in fact, things have changed overnight with a little bit of fog along the coast. this is around marin county and coastal san francisco. more moisture in the air has allowed temperatures to top out near 50 here, but the dryer air mass settling in. san francisco at 51. 42 in oakland with more 40s down the peninsula. redwood city, half moon bay, 39 degrees. take a look at these
5:48 am
temperatures as we look at emeryville this morning. this is where things are definitely significantly cooler. 32, santa rosa. napa, 35. mid 30s for navato, fairfield. into the 30s. 24 hours ago, look how much milder we were with 14 degrees cooler this morning, half moon bay we were in the 50s here. it was 60 yesterday, santa rosa and san francisco and oakland, we were warmer. so we're looking at a chilly start in the valleys, and with the wind protected valleys, temperatures drop off quickly. even if there is more moisture in the air, which we have today and this morning, because those northeasterly winds have backed off. so we're getting back to normal slowly, so chilly conditions with sunny and mild readings the next several days. chance of rain comes our way thanksgiving and into wednesday night. right now, it's just a chance of
5:49 am
rain. so here's this area of low pressure that is bringing some pretty good snow now to the southern plains and rockies. it could be a problem for the northeast come thanksgiving as it continues to travel southward across the lower 48. sunny and mild as high pressure has built on in, but we're looking at the moisture content coming up, so that will allow for some mild temperatures today. the onshore flow, still nice. how about 14 degrees this morning at the tahoe valley airport, so certainly cold in the mountains. lower 60s in sacramento, very quiet throughout the day today and the next several days, but here's a look at wednesday. you'll notice this area of low pressure is offshore and it's a cut-off low. it's going to remain offshore and looks like now it's going to be taking that track a little bit further away from the coast. and with that, it leaves us a chance of rain coming wednesday and thursday, but these things
