6:47 am
what do you think? >> he has a nice profile. looks good, you know. he's got something to say. just hanging out on this calm morning. it's pretty comfortable out there with temperatures in the 60s. so really no reason to go anywhere else. in fact, we are looking at the low clouds and to go this morning, anywhere from about 1800 feet deep to 2400 feet deep. and that's allowed for a gray start for much of the bay with 39-minute delays at sfo. so it's been one of those mornings. it will be one of those mornings again where when the fog pulls back, it will get a little breezy. there he is finish. hello, there. the temperatures haven't moved much. 62 in san jose. this is about two to four degrees warmer than yesterday, but really the warmup will come tomorrow as we go back to work. sutro a little gray, a little hazy out there, but you, too,
6:48 am
will get some sun. maybe a few peaks of sun at the golden gate bridge for the tourists. and looking at temperatures this morning with the clouds in the 60s from concord to livermore. fairfield, well, we are looking at those winds at about 28 miles an hour. so the breezy southwest winds will be allowing for a pleasant afternoon. and finally from our exploratorium camera, yep, a lot of gray for you. a cloudy start. we will look for a sunny average. high pressure builds slightly for the week ahead and that brings our warmup. in fact, we should get more clearing at the coast. so we are in between two systems. an upper level high to the south and east of us, and an upper level low here that kind of keeps us locked into a very quiet pattern with the ebb and flow of the low clouds and fog. they came back kind of early last night. once again, that will be the case. so in between we've got the warmer weather in sacramento. 91 there. hazy conditions from the northern sierra and up in lake county with some of those fires. southern sierra, hot there, 97.
