>> tina, the officer mentioned earlier in the day, does it seem still the the bombing suspect was working alone? >> reporter: that is what investigators are trying to figure out. it is something that they think that raiding the suspect's home where he lived with several other family members may eventually lead them to. they are trying to figure out if he was a lone wolf or part of a bigger terror network. and with the british prime minister raising the terror threat level, it is clear that the british police and now military are taking chances. darkness has spread across the city of lights, the eiffel tower in paris turned off its lights for a time this evening. it was in a show of solidarity with victims and people of manchester.
here's more now on these young lives lost. >> reporter: it is just a shame. anytime this happens and when it involves young people it is even more sad. so far officials identified three of the dead, a college student, a dancer, and a little girl who was just 8 years old. people who saw saffie roussos at the concert last night said the 8-year-old was wearing an ariana grande t-shirt when she died. her mother and sister are among the wounded. 18-year-old georgina callander was also killed when the bomb went off. the college student was said to be a super fan of the singer and even took photos of her a few years ago. john atkinson was a 26-year-old dancer. friends posted tributes to him on facebook, calling him a true gentleman. in manchester and across the uk, there is anger and disbelief that a terrorist took aim at the community's youngest and most vulnerable.

elsewhere. let's take a look at temperatures outside which are still warm, livermore, concord, low 80s, san francisco, 58. san jose, 73, baseball tonight, you can still go over to the stadium. why do i suggest that? i am told it is five dollars tickets and free parking. what is it, 1962? miami marlins, oakland a's, partly cloudy and cool, low cloud cover, low of 53, it will be cloudy tomorrow morning. napa, same story, 59. fremont, cloud cover and 53. i think it'll be tomorrow night and thursday when we get clouds and lows in the mid-50s. the winds are turning southwest. it is always about our wind direction and wind speed. a northwest wind is an offshore wind. we will be warm. the opposite is a southwest flow moving southwest to the northeast which will give us pretty chilly temperatures tomorrow ritual of the -- relatively speaking.
temperatures in the santa clara valley, dropping down to the 60s, overnight tonight. low to mid-70s though tomorrow afternoon. that is the one spot that will keep the heat if you will. you will stay in the upper 70s because the santa cruz mountains will block a decent amount of that marine influence. that ridge of high pressure which got us warmth is gone, replaced to the south and west. that is the catalyst to the southwest flow of air which will keep a school the next couple of days. futurecast does predict 93, a new ridge moving in, temperatures rebounding by the weekend. what to expect. widespread fog and low cloud cover overnight near the water. the afternoons are going to be much cooler with temperatures rebounding to the 80s inland by sunday. san francisco, all of this talk about temperatures moving, don't worry about you. you stay chilly in the low 60s, 4 degrees above average. palo alto, 75, marine air blocked by the santa cruz mountains. walnut creek close to 90.
