a couple of pop-up showers earlier especially in the hill top, but those have all diminished. let's take you to lake tahoe now, a live look. look at this. late season snow fall happening out there. they've been talking about how the resorts have said they're going to stay open. some of them through july 4. this is part of the reason why. it's may 14th and we have some snow showers out there right now. in fact, this picture sent to me on my twitter page, this coming in from truckee, some snow showers as well. this is about 7,000 feet in the atmosphere, but it's still showing we have cold air in place and that is going to keep that snow pack there for several weeks into the future. out there right now, numbers on the cool side across the region. 58 in san francisco right now, 61 that current number in oakland. 64 in san jose. 67 in concord and santa rosa right now. the mild spot, only 68 degrees. the reason we're on the cool side, those winds continue to be active gusting to 32 right now,
sfo, 20 an car santa rosa, same in fairfield coming off the cool ocean water, bringing us that cool air overhead as well. live doppler 7 along with satellite, the reason why for the wind and also the snow showers in tahoe, there is an area of low pressure to the east that counter clockwise spin kicking up the wind. the problem, this thing is going to take its time exiting the next 24 hours. the breeze will stay with us overnight tonight. so, here is the call. temperatures dropping into the mid 40s to low 50s. north bay will have clear skies, plenty of starz. in the south bay a couple cloudy skies around san jose, overnight low of 50 degrees. tomorrow through monday, another bright looking day but it is also another windy afternoon. those winds once again going to be gusting 15 to 35 miles per hour. temperatures once again below normal, about 68 in san jose, 60 in san francisco, 72 in napa. future weather as we go to tuesday, tuesday is going to be a rather cloudy day.
there is a chance we could have a spot sprinkle. best chance probably the north bay. however, once we get that system out of here on wednesday, that's going to allow warmer air to filter in. in fact, future tracker temperatures by friday look how we're going to end this week. temperatures well above normal for this time of year. it turns hot, not only inland with 90s and 80s, but even right along the coast, temperatures will go into the 70s so high of 74 in san francisco, low 80s in oakland, near 90 in san jose, and the low 90s inland. if you like summer heat it's on the way. accuweather seven-day forecast sunny and windy for monday. there is a chance of sprinkle on tuesday. wednesday, we get the clouds out of here, spring beauty, temperatures take off, hot on friday no matter where you live. then we'll start to cool off the coast into the weekend. but we're still warm inland. >> announcer: now abc7 news sports with larry beil. >> good evening on this mother's day. the warriors needed the mother of all come back to win with the
