down a few degrees so the weekend bottoms out but we'll warm up as the week goes on. it's all being caused by low pressure off the pacific northwest and also a little low that's out in the pacific. and would you think -- look at this subtropical moisture coming up that with the low off the south shore and high that refuses to budge that that would funnel this into the bay area. but this low is going to be moving closer to the shoreline and when the low comes in, it's going to push all that subtropical moisture to the east. so if there's any thunderstorm chances it's going to be in the sierra. for us we'll keep it mild below average temperatures for the next couple of days. and then after that we are going to warm up a little bit. pinpoint forecast for the day, still plenty warm down in the south bay. 83 at campbell. 89 for morgan hill. 75 degrees at fremont. out in the east bay the numbers look nice and warm at brentwood. 89. 83 at napa. up in the north bay, we are looking at 66 degrees at bodega
bay, 78 petaluma, novato 78. it's in the extended forecas 80s inland. in the middle of the week a little roller coaster in the weather department. 60s around the bay and 50s at the coast. so not a good beach week. and if you want things to cool off just stick around because that's what's going to happen this weekend. >> we'll be here to update you all weekend long in the morning. therapy is what san diego's mayor says he is going to do even members of his own party in the meantime wanting bob filner to resign. democratic party leaders in san diego county voted last night to call for him to step down as four more women have come forward to say filner made unwanted sexual advances. and that makes 7 women in all. he is refusing to leave office or answer reporter questions so far about the charges. so he is speaking out this afternoon. in new york, anthony weiner is still running for mayor even though as vinita nair test us, we have learned that carlos danger, as he likes to be
