is no swimming today and our high temperatures in half moon bay stay nice and cool. looks like the clear skies at 3:00 and then the clouds move back in. seeing them linger just offshore. and it will give us a little bit of a break. going to is sierra, here's a live look, beautiful with sunshine. seeing the highs there reaching into the mid-80s for the next couple of days. around the bay area, we are still going to have these hot temperatures for the inland valleys reaching into the mid-90s. as we get closer to the weekend, it is still going to be pretty warm. warmer than normal but we'll bring it down several degrees. it won't be the intense heat we are feeling in some spots today. san francisco, even cooler with morning clouds and fog to linger in the day and high temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 60s for the weekend. so it's wednesday, we're all starting to make plans and we'll talk about more things around the bay area for the rest of the
