5:48 am
sports. have a great weekend. >> now an accuweather update from abc 7 mornings. >> good saturday morning. i'm meteorologist frances dinglasan. we are starting off with mostly clear skies around the bay and the satellite image, there are some low clouds just confined to the immediate coast and that's about it. here is a live shot as we look out towards the very calm waters over the bay and san francisco and there are those low clouds making it just toward the tower right now. san francisco it's 58 degrees and oakland, 59 and already in the mid-60s through mountain view, san jose and gill roadway at 6 1 degrees and we're looking through walnut creek and we are looking at pink, orange clouds at 5:54 today. more mild temperatures in the interior area and low to mid-60s right now and santa rosa, one of the cooler spots at 52 degrees, but you will notice when you step out the door it is going to be a nice, warm day.
5:49 am
here is a live shot, san cruz, mostly clear skies as well. it will be a gorgeous day to head to the beach and temperatures will still be mild at the coast in the 60s for the most part and then we'll see hot temperatures inland and if you are headed to the coast, be careful, there is a beach hazard statement in effect through this afternoon. the hot weather stays with us, so if you don't like it you'll have to wait until the end of next week where we'll start to see things cooling down a bit. so breezy conditions at the coast and the onshore flow will keep things cool in half moon bay and san francisco will be nice and mild at 70 degrees and upper 70s to 80 degrees and san jose, 89 degrees and if you're headed to the north bay, santa rosa and napa in the low 90s with plenty of sunshine. again with the beach it's still cool with the sea breeze there in the 60s. santa cruz will warm up nicely to 80 degrees. you need a lot of sunscreen and stay hydrated as well.
5:50 am
the beach hazard statement in effect through this afternoon and that's because we have the strong southerly swell, three feet to seven feet and this is all from that post-hurricane fabio and also this means rip currents and some sneaker waves. so be careful if you are going to the beaches today. also at the alameda county fair today it will be sunny and warm even at 11:00, with plenty of sunshine and warming up into the low 90s and if you stick around until closing time, still clear and mild with temperatures in the mid-60s. so let me show you what is going on. we have high pressure building in the four corners. this is bringing very hot conditions, warm weather through parts of northern california and hot in southern california where we saw a lot of triple digit heat. there's also quite a few red flag warnings in effect through parts of southern california and parts of nevada and even out in utah. low humidity, gusty winds and high heat are the factors because of the high pressure.
5:51 am
lows tonight will still be on the milder side around the bay and we'll still get a little bit of the sea breeze. so half moon bay dropping to 52 and mid-50s in san mateo. san jose, 59 and very mild still. inland only dropping to the mid-60s in some spots. here is the accuweather seven-day forecast. we have hot inland temperatures today and the mid-90s around the bay, nice and warm in the mid-80s and at the coast, mid-60s because of that onshore flow, but elsewhere high pressure building and that will stick around the next few days and we'll still see the mid-90s through monday and tuesday and we will see the mid-80s return to the inland areas. >> frances, thank you. homelessness is up 6% in sonoma county. over a 24-hour period counters founder inially 3,000 homeless. a third are in shelters and two-thirds live outside. county housing officials say
