and went right to summer. today it was the peak of the heat. so from here on out on the 7 day forecast the numbers only go downhill. first you will feel it on the coast tomorrow, and then everywhere by friday. live doppler 7, what we are seeing along the coast is patchy fog, and that's an indication of a marine layer returning, some cooler air coming into our atmosphere, and that's what really will break the heat over the coming days. take, for example, san francisco. today we hit a record high in the low 80s. quite a different story is setting up for your thursday thanks to the fog moving back in. it is a cool start at 56, but then temperatures really take their time climbing. by the afternoon we're really going to be stuck in the 60s with on and off fog coming in and out of the city. it will feel dramatically cooler in san francisco. away from the coast though it still will be a mild day. outside we have a live look from golden gate bridge camera. look at that. it is foggy on 101 as you go north and south and that will be with us in the early morning
9:18 pm
hours on thursday as well. so pockets of fog along the coast return, so take note of that. we haven't seen that in quite sometime, so we might have a little bit of a slower commute on our way tomorrow. right now, a wide range in temperatures by some 30 degrees. where we have the fog like half moon bay, san francisco, we're currently in the 50s. away from the fog, look at antioch right now. still holding in the 80s. 82 degrees. 78 right now in san ramon. 72 vallejo. san jose coming off record high in the 90s, still mid 73 right now. santa rosa cooled to 59. overnight tonight along the coast you have nature's ac, that fog kicking in. upper 40s will be the name of the game. away from the coast we will still have a warm night under mainly clear skies, upper 50s to lower 60, bringing back the summer microclimate even though it is still spring and may, a wide range. 67 in downtown san francisco is going to feel refreshing compared to the 80s we had today. 73 over in oakland.

9:20 pm
part of the reason why we're cooling so rapidly a wind is going to kick in. and that wind will turn breezy future tracker wind gust will show as we go throughout the day along the coast the wind picks up, over 30 miles per hour, and throughout the evening hours would not be surprised if we have frequent gusts around the bay 15 to 30 miles per hour. windy and cooler into the week. accuweather had the fog in the morning, cooling off the coast. rather warm inland, and then the winds pick up on friday. it is gusty everywhere, but it breaks the heat wave area-wide. saturday night into sunday could have a drop on two. wouldn't cancel plans, not a big issue. by monday, tuesday and wednesday, no sign of the heat returning, more spring like as we round out the seven day forecast. thanks, drew. >> facebook is about to hire thousands of new workers. >> and with the new employees what they will be doing as "abc 7 news" at 9:00 continues.
