let's talk about the cooler temperature. i was out at 6:00 a.m. this morning, i was wearing a jacket. it was chilly outside. >> is this a good thing or a bad thing for you guys? >> iik >> i know you like the heat. >> could we rewind it two months? >> that's a picture where a lot of us still want another week of 90s and 100s and others want 60s and 70s. so we're in that transitional time. appropriately so. because fall begins not this saturday but next saturday. so it's starting to feel a little bit more like that outside. you can see some high clouds passing on by here throughout the tri-valley. a little bit of a breeze after 76 in livermore today we're down to a much cooler 63 degrees, and as jessica mentioned she was a little bit chilly this morning. you're going to find those chillier temperatures coming back once we hit tomorrow morning and lots of 50s. the main reason why we've seen this abrupt shift in the weather from the 80s to also 90s is the system out here offshore.
6:48 pm
as this continues to develop over the next three days, it will keep cooler temperatures in place, clouds at times, and also some areas of fog at the immediate coastline. so for those of us across the bay area, we might need a light jacket here as you begin tomorrow morning. i still think we'll have some rays of sunshine kind of pushing on through the clouds. but also we do expect a little bit of that cloud cover. 57 in the south bay, 56 in the peninsula and the tri-valley at 58. over to the east bay, 57 degrees and san francisco begins with 54 and you're up one degree here in the north bay and 55. we'll warm up tomorrow. it's just not a whole lot. you'll see across the south bay it will feel more like fall here down across downtown san jose with 73 degrees. our mildest is gilroy at 77. over to the east bay, we had a lot of mid 90s this past weekend. so much more refreshing. you're at 77 tomorrow in pittsburgh. 75 in livermore. 73 in martinez. go anywhere near the bay, oakland and hayward, you're in the 60s.
6:49 pm
also, taking it down to the 60s for redwood city, 69 tomorrow. san mateo 67. san francisco, plenty of low to mid 60s from the marina down through the mission, and right through marin, napa, sonoma county. a lot of 70s from mill valley to ukia right back to napa's forecast. so really no complaints as we hit thursday, but we know the situation is hurricane florence course of utmost importance. this right now is a category 3. landfall is still expected sometime as we hit friday morning. winds of 115 miles per hour near wrightsville beach. maybe a second landfall near myrtle beach as a category 1, winds of 80. it will linger right through sunday into columbia. so thursday to sunday impacts here across the carolinas. this will mean 5 to 20 inches of rain. flooding of course. storm surge 5 to 13 feet. and it's because of that storm surge that they have evacuations at the coast. we'll be covering it at nbc bay
6:50 pm you can count on us. san francisco's forecast the next seven days, we are in the 60s, on again off again cloud cover, and for the inland valleys we're putting it on cruise control the next couple of days. looks very nice asupcoming week. >> that looks gorgeous. thanks, jeff. up next, the season opener didn't go quite as planned for the 49ers. so what are the changes they're going to make for this sunday? colin resch gets us ready for the 49ers' home opener.
