that is good to know for the next time you have a shipment headed to your home and the delivery is delayed. remember, the ftc mail order rule. garvin, back to you. >> chris, thank you very much. i have something right now i'm waiting for, i'll keep that 30 days in mind. join chris this saturday for a special from our nbc bay area responds team for students around the bay area returning to class. it will bring lots of changes and challenges. chris and the rest of our response team is working to help your family prepare. join us for a half hour back to school special, saturday night after the nhl on nbc. blastoff. today the mars rover named perseverance launched from florida. it's expected to land on mars in february, six months from now. it will look for evidence of life including drilling into the red planet to collect rock and soil a few months which will then be sent home. if everything goes according to
plan, the samples should arrive back on earth by 2031. still a decade rover is called perseverance. >> exactly, going to have to wa. looking for signs of life on mars? we have signs of life in jeff's backyard. >> oh, yes, right here in the east bay. we've got the sun setting right now. i was trying to battle some of that light but it's impossible. mother nature always definitely wins out. the great thing lately, of course, has been that persistent pattern of fog at the coastline. it's really helped to keep us out of those hot 100s which has been quite amazing for the end of july. let's go ahead and get you a look at why i think this pattern is going to stay in place as we move into this upcoming weekend. it's all about this trough of low pressure, basically a dip in the jetstream in this cooler than average system for july, moving in across the pacific
northwest. this will hang out in the weekend, this will continue to keep that fog at our coastline. the thing i was telling you about, our fire danger. this has done wonders to help us out, because that fog helps to import a little bit of humid and of course gives us overnight relief with those colder temperatures. the fire burn index, this is the same rating firefighters use, it's 40. it's considered moderate and it will hold at a moderate level for tomorrow as well. that may help you sleep a little bit easier here. i know whenever we head into these months it's always in the back of our minds, of course. through tomorrow morning, there you go, the fog in the northi bay, the east bay, patchy clouds at the south bay, even at the coastline. we should clear back from this at 11:00 a.m. and we'll keep the beaches with some of that cloud cover. what about temperatures? we'll start off with the cool relief. 56 in the tri valley, down to 56 in the east bay, san francisco 54. in the north bay at
53. mytely won't disappoint in the south bay. i think you've got some of the greatest weather right into cupertino at 80 degrees. breezy on and off, winds 10 to 20 miles per hour in the northwest. nothing extreme when it comes to the wind. 89 in walnut creek. you want it cooler, oakland, go for a hike. we've got 73 degrees. maybe it's the peninsula, you really want to get away from things and clear your mind. half moon bay, 60 and a chill, that will definitely refresh you. san francisco also 50s and 60s. chilliest in the marina at 58. the mission the mildest at 56. north bay, if you have to head up for work in napa, or maybe a little stay-cation here, low 80s tomorrow, and winds out of the northwest at 12 miles per hour. beautiful across the bay area. i think that morning fog pattern continues over the next several days and will keep 60s in the forecast going up to 67 on
saturday. and across the inland valleys, we are looking at some low 90s this weekend, as we start off august. but not too hot. and then as we head through the first week of august, we are in the 80s monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and friday. so some really beautiful weather as we begin that first week of august. garvin and janelle, i've got to tell, the foggy breeze comes in here across the east bay at night, out here around orinda. i can show you my hedge back here really likes that foggy breeze. i just trimmed it about two months ago, and it's already like out of control already. i had it nice and trim for all of you guys back home but it's out of control now. it's going to do its thing. >> it's very lush. but if you do decide to trim it again, make some animals. some design. you're so talented in the garden, jeff. >> it's drought tolerant too. it's california privet, it's got
this cool tiny leaf. it's been here since the '30s. >> thanks, jeff. the coronavirus hits another baseball team. what the phillies are being told to do now, next in sports. hi. we're glad you came in. what's on your mind? can you help keep these guys protected online? easy. connect to the xfi gateway. what about wireless data options for the family? you can customize and save. what about internet speeds that can keep up with my gaming? let's hook you up with the fastest internet from xfinity. and now with our stores reopening, we're putting healthy practices in place. come visit a store today. stop in or book an appointment online at a time that works for you. now that's simple, easy, awesome. ask. shop. discover at your local xfinity store today.
