5:16 pm
but not for all of us. we did not get out of the 60s all day in sa and you can see the reason why over my shoulder. that is a strong surge of an on- shore flow, a beautiful time lapse of the marine layer clouds getting pushed right over alcatraz island. i love these views from the sales force tower. that was natural air- conditioning. we didn't get that over the hill. but many of news the city did. it wasn't even a warm day today. it was a totally average day in san francisco. we will take a welcome at how things are different from where they were 24 hours ago. we are two degrees yesterday. that shows you the strong arm shore flow. look at the green here with the purple here. it is 15 degrees warmer in fairfield now than it was yesterday. this is a perfect example of how this was not an even
5:17 pm
warmup. it certainly wasn't equal across the field. 12 degrees warmer in livermore. and the numbers just updated. 13. you can see the golden gate bridge just barely showing up. that shows you there is high pressure taking the marine layer and squashing it down. it is not even tall enough to get over the towers of the golden gate bridge. having said all that, i do not want to down play the fact we are dealing with significant heat inland. so, these are where the numbers stand at this point. you see where it says today, i have an asterisk mark. the official highs have not come in. this is where the thermometer shows us we have gone to. concord at 100. record for today is 103. we can do this for livermore as well. record in livermore is 102. doesn't mean we're not going to tie records today. i'm still waiting for the official update to come in. that will happen pretty shortly. but, these are where the numbers stand at this point. so i'm shores them to you.
5:18 pm
for napa, 96 degrees today. the record was 89. so napa going to break the record for today. let me show you what happens next. concord, you were really feeling the worst of the heat. if you look at the cooldown, this will be dramatic. we are going to go from 100 today to 85 monday. in between now and monday, we still have a sunday to get through. which while not as hot as today will still be hot. there is san jose. you are also going to get that cooldown after tomorrow. we are only seven degrees above average for today in san jose. oakland, similar trend here. it is like nothing ever happened. we will take a look ahead to the cooldown. i spotlighted that for much of next week. the thing i want to impress upon you is if you are inland, you are not out of the woods yet, but you are almost there. vern, what's going on in teyou,
