tide. of course we will have coverage tomorrow. let's move it into the microclimate forecast. the other thing i want you to be on the lookout for, is the chance for fog. we have had so much rainfall recently, you get cold temperatures and that condenses moisture left over in the atmosphere. what we are looking at is a chance for thick fog in the central valley and some of it could bubble up towards us here. also down towards santa clara. otherwise after that we are on the way to some sunshine tomorrow. we did get a little bit of it today but it does look like increased sunshine tomorrow and we deserve it. a much needed break for tomorrow's forecast. as we started off have to have your jacket, it is going to be downright cold. look at these numbers. 36 in the tri-valley. also 37 at east bay.
