heavier coats and the scarves and the hats and all of that stuff as we start out with cold temperatures this morning, and also mostly clear sky. we have a few clouds rolling by san francisco right now. beautiful scenes as we look at all of our cameras, as the sun comes up, in the background, you can see the sun rising and in the foreground you can see our storm ranger, that's a live view of it parked on san bruno mountain and this will be scanning for some rain, headed into the middle of the week but as we get out the door this morning, skies are all clear and temperatures are chilly. this is behind that cold front that moved through on saturday evening, and so now as we wake up, we have temperatures in the upper 30s. we will see a gradual warmup as we go into the afternoon, and these numbers will reach into the mid-50s, about normal for this time of year. so we're looking at a high of about 57 degrees in san jose, oakland reaching 56. 54 will be the high in napa, while san francisco reaches 55 degrees. that's a live look in san jose.
