the inland valleys. as we look at where we are right now, we're at 81 degrees in concord and in livermore. we have in san franciscohe 63 and the 57 in half moon bay. i think half moon bay is only going to make it up another couple of degrees before we're done. we were just talking about eat, sip, and be in rwc. so that's going on this evening if you're going out there for some curbside dining outdoor dining. we are going to see some nice weather for that in the mid-70s for the middle of the day. and as we go into this evening starts to cool off, maybe want to have a jacket if you'll be walking down the street as well as that mask. now, the air quality is better, and we see lower amounts of pollen floating through the air. so it will be a nice evening to sit outside and get some fresh air as we're looking at low or absent amounts of tree, grass, weed pollen as well as mold. so not a lot of allergens out there. let's go through our micro climates and check out our high temperatures for today. in gilroy expect a high of about
92 degrees. but we will see some low 90s in mill pittas. for the east bay we are looking at some mid-90s here with a high of 96 degrees in pittsburg. oakland is in the upper 70s. upper 50s along the coast. while palo alto will reach very warm temperatures. and then in san francisco mostly staying in the 60s today for the north bay. we'll have wide ranging temperatures as well but it will be hot farther to the north in clear lake and ukiah. and if you have some friends and family in the east coast, they're maybe looking at the potential of a tropical storm. we're going to continue to monitor fay as it moves now into new jersey and heading towards new york city over the next 12 to 18 hours. so, this will bring in a lot of heavy rain and some high winds. but it does move quickly and will be out of here by the rest of the weekend. as we look at what's happening here at home, we are going to see our temperatures heating up. we are looking at that desert southwest heat expanding into
the bay area. so it's going to make it hot for the weekend, especially for our inland areas. and not too many changes here for next week. so our inland valleys in the mid-90s. but we will see it gradually coming down by the middle of next week. kris and cierra? sounds good. a story that will give you some hope. a south bay man beats the coronavirus after spending months in the hospital. but first, happening now, wimbledon may be canceled for the year. but the players are still going to get paid. all players who would have been eligible for the 2020 tournament will get paid. managers wanted to help support the players who would have been hurt financially by this year's tournament. this is the first year without a wimbledon tournament since world war ii. we'll be back with you right after the break.
