saturday. now eventually we'll get some rain back in the seven day forecast but our nearest sign is about 900 miles out here. and typically this would have an easy time. we have this unusually strong region of high pressure building in from the pacific and it's not going to go anywhere the next 48 hours, stay firmly entrenched right over all of california helping to drive this heat. so far saturday we'll have a few more 90s returning, possibly a couple of records, and then as we head into sunday we'll get a cooling coast with that marine layer coming on back. so if you're looking for the beach day, it looks like saturday will be the best because as we head throughout the morning and the afternoon, we'll see that marine layer push on back and we'll have a sunny finish for everyone on saturday. for santa cruz, by 4:00 p.m. tomorrow, temperatures in the mid-80s. so some spectacular weather coming our way for saturday. 55 in redwood city to begin. 59 in san jose. also expecting 57 in concord and 56 in oakland.
and saturday it will play out like this. looks like the south bay will come in second with some of the warmest temperatures. 90 in morgan hill. 92 in evergreen and expecting 90 in los gatos. the east bay looks to have the most consistent with 90 in concord down to dublin and 90 livermore at 91. near the bay alameda to fremont mid to upper 80s for saturday. san francisco close to the 80s. right in the middle of downtown, we did he haefinitely could hav 80s. if you're heading out to the beach, we gave you that forecast. watch out. small craft advisory in effect. waves not that high. the undertow could pull you out. the fog starts to roll back in with drizzle. then for tuesday, wednesday and thursday and friday of next week, numbers gradually start to tick down and we'll get some 60s in here and our best chance of rain looks to be on thursday.
