5:19 am
good morning to you all. steve in los altos is saying it's 3 degrees cooler this morning due to the ocean breeze that has been kicking in. currently that westerly is at 7 in san francisco, 11 sfo, across the bay we make tracks towards pleasanton at 10. 12 san ramon. these winds out of the southwest at 30 in the area. westerlies 10 to 20 in the afternoon hours occasionally a stronger gust. so today a deeper marine layer at the coast with drizzle. clouds slow to clear bayside. we did clear out yesterday morning by mid-morning. and then inland, much cooler temperatures by 10 to 12 degrees. futurecast clearly illustrates that the coast will not be clear all day long. in fact, as we forge ahead towards your friday, this marine layer will continue to, um, expand and extend inland and so it's going to knock back our temperatures. satellite and radar, it's a huge dome of an area of low pressure and this is just
5:20 am
enhancing our marine layer. until it kicks out, we'll begin to warm back up again. so bringing down the temperature by 9 degrees in sacramento. couple of degrees in the high sierra. 100 today at fresno. still a bit of smoke and haze in the monterey bay area. sun-up at 6:15. and by the time it sets tonight, we are talking about temperatures into the 60s beaches, 60s bay, 70 peninsula, 78 san jose where we should be at 84 degrees. we're talking 80s inland. 87 degrees our outside number today and ditto friday. we'll begin to warm gently by the beginning of next week. you guys know what's going on this weekend? >> what's up? >> outside lands!

[ laughter ] >> i'm stuck! [ laughter ] >> well, luckily, rescue crews lifted o'neal and her dog and the goose out of the mud but they are warning people, call 911 if you see someone stuck in the mud, don't try and save them yourselves. >> try, do or do not, there is no try. >> we are going to still work on that.
