sunshine, a lot of people are heading out to lunch and getting ready to enjoy the day as they uch of the north bay to head out and up to about 70 at 1:00 and then some low 70s, so a comfortable feel to the air with some low humidity, but before you head out, make sure that if you have allergies and you are taking the medication today, and we have a high now of tree pollen and it is pine, elm and juniper and if you know what you are allergic to, but everything else is low in terms of grass, weeds and mold. and in the next few days, no rain to clear tout allergins and the temperatures are warming up and the trees have started t ar to see that the grass is turning green, and our temperature is going to go into the upper afternoon in the low 60s and low 70s in concord and 69 degrees in novato and mid-60s in san francisco. and going into the evening, it is going to cool off quickly and
he g into the low 40y early tomorrow morning and i am seeing the clouds here as we looked at the disturbance just off of the coast, and we have mostly had high pressure blocking any clouds and keeping the clouds arert a that is working in the atmosphere, it has to encounter some dry air and so by to a lot of the time, the storm systems that do approach dry up before they come in and it has been dry recently and as we are looking into the weekend, it is a low pressure to the north and the storm system is bringing the slight chance of rain from san francisco to the north bay, but it doesn't look like enough rain to help us out here. we are going to see a change of the pattern here by the middle of next week, and we can see the approaching storm system may have more of the moisture with us to bring us some rain and then by the end of the month, we
could finally measure some rain, and we know that last month in san jose, we only measured 3/4 of an inch of rain, and normal is two inches of that, and then for that, this is what we normally measure, but so far we have not gotten a drop yet, and as we head into march and april, the expected rain is going to drop off. so we will hopefully get a normal amount of rain by march and nice if we got more, and as we are looking for the dry forecast, you will see the temperatures in the inland areas and the 70s today, and the mid-60s for the rest of the week, and going into the weekend and talking about the clouds going into the weekend, and then you will see a slight chance of rain in san francisco, and northward and other than that dry and warm is going into the next few days as we see more sun and spring-like weather, laura and marcus. >> okay. good. and now, coming up, a
