important to remember that there is a cost for providing services. and that cost should be borne by the people utilizing the facility or the program. >> reporter: nbc bay area news. interesting story. let's bring in our chief meteorologist. what are we, 40 minutes from friday? >> the theme of the day. >> friday. it is so close. and that friday forecast going to look a little bit better than what we had today. we are going to get low cloud cover, but not as extensive as it was the past 4 hours. by then into hour, temperatures in the mid-70s. and by 4:00 tomorrow right where we should be this time of the year. let's get you outside to a check of that high-definition sky camera network. it looks good here in san jose at the lower levels. and in san francisco, yes, it is fogged in, but not as bad as it was this time last night. that's a key indicator that, again, yes, we have the low
clouds, but it does not look as severe. let's get a look at our friday fog factor forecast. we're going to highlight just about all of our counties. those counties will have the most cloud cover. but for areas around livermore down into san jose, looks like quite a bit of less cloud cover than we've had over the last 24 hours. plenty of widespread sunshine in napa, santa rosa, san jose. if you're headed to the coast again, it is going to be a repeat performance of what we've had in the last two to three days. plenty of foggy skies and brisk conditions. fog at the coast. that will mean yet again more airport delays running from about one to three hours behind with those low ceilings. this is considered major when it comes to airport delays. so if you have any destinations maybe to new york city you could see more dough lays as new york is also expecting weather impacts.
otherwise we'll see temperatures at 78 in san jose. looks pretty god across the east bay when you compare it to what we've had over the past two weeks. almost feels like the ac's on. pleasant pleasanton, 85, livermore. 74 in sonoma, also 80 in napa. do not expect it to get extremely hot. no triple digits coming in that extended forecast. temperatures in the mid to upper 80s for friday, saturday, and also on sunday. and looking pretty steady there on monday and tuesday nest week. some of the forecast models have mid to low 90s. we reserve that right. we'll see about that later on. how about this for a rough
