5:48 am
ere patches of fog around the kois but otherwise it's really nice start out there. the official sunrise in about ten minutes and as we look at golden gate bridge you'll notice that maybe a finger of fog there, otherwise a light west wind and temperatures will be not only quick to warm up, but we will be looking at numbers throughout the afternoon in the triple digits, so yesterday we did manage 102 in concord, and as we look at the roof camera right now, it's quiet out there. it looks still, and temperatures from the mid-50s san francisco. 59 in oakland, with 55 in mountain view. 61 s. lo50sovernight. on the peninsula yesterday, wow it was into the 90s redwood city. close to that again today, but that sea breeze will be feeling a little bit better later on in the day today. certainly a lot better with that quick warmup on the way. 61 in concord. it is 48 in petaluma. 51 in napa and look outside here
5:49 am
our east bay hills camera, just a little bit of fog, some haze out there. sizzling hot inland, with the patchy fog returning tomorrow morning, setting up that cooler monday afternoon, and summer spread continues throughout the rest of the week. so as we look at the wind profile throughout the day today, you're going to notice it's light through noontime, very little wind and by the afternoon it's just anywhere from about 10 to 15 miles an hour. it's not until after 4:00 we begin to feel the breeze, perhaps through the delta. locally certainly around the bay, but as for highs today in the south bay, check it out, 100 in morgan hill. 99 in gilroy. a little bit warmer today in parts of the south bay with low 90s arriving. 9 in sunnyvale. redwood city almost as warm as yesterday. it's a hot day in menlo park and lost altos. numbers in the city in the low 70s so beautiful here, mid-60s for daly city, and the sunset up in the north bay, 100ical stowia ga and lakeport, 19 in napa and
5:50 am
numbers around 09 degrees in san rafael. near east bay nice and mild, the closer you are to berkeley and oakland, with the upper 70s but as you head out towards union city and fremont, mid, upper 80s heading inland, temperatures pretty oppressive with 100 in pittsburg. 101 in concord. pleasanton and san ramon close to the 100-degree mark and looking at those overnight lows, comfortable as they drop off towards the early morning hours, but the early evening hours will be still quite warm, especially in the upper elevations. the accuweather seven-day forecast, 60s at the coast, mid 80s around the bay. 102 inland today. big time cooling for your monday and we're looking at the that typical summer spread that continues with the morning fog, afternoon warmth inland with minor cooling by the end of the week. so pretty quiet week ahead, and not looking at any big wind gusts either, so that's always in our favor this time of year. tegh thanks, lisa. this marks the halfway point
