that's been tested over the past couple of days. and if you love the heat, if this is for you, this is your kind of weather, get outside now, once the show is finished or get outside tomorrow because some significant changes are coming in. we are rancho san ramon community park. the kids were here in the splash pad earlier. mother nature will do that for us cooling us off this week but it is toasty out still. >> it will be another mild to warm night tonight with overnight lows in the low 60s. for concord vallejo fremont and livermore 56 for san francisco. there's a big ridge of high pressure off to our west.
6:49 pm
what that is doing it's inducing a north to northeast wind that's an offshore wind so all that cold air over the pacific ocean stays over the pacific ocean. it is not invading the bay area. but as soon as the winds will change to a southerly or westerly direction, hint thursday, that onshore flow and that much cooler air will move over the bay area and temperatures will respond by dropping significantly. so the surface winds you can see the beginning of the return of the onshore throw along the coastline where it's not going to be as warm tomorrow but away from the water places like san ramon or san jose will still have the offshore element with hot weather around for one more day. so clear tonight, tomorrow a "spare the air" day as the high pressure ridge compresses the pollution in the atmosphere and sticks it down by us. so watch out for that. and cooler changes do begin coming up on thursday. highs tomorrow still well above average away from the water. 91 for campbell.
