5:53 pm
be a degree or two warmer and we won't see much variation and and i mentioned the wind more to the south and southwest instead of straight to the west and it does not sound like a big change but a big difference in terms of the warm. low 60s along the coast. upper 60s and low 70s around the bay with upper 70s for the south end and low 80s in the santa clara valley and mid 80s for the tri-valley with hotspots east of the diablo range and upper 70s the low to mid 80s from north bay. harding park, up to the mid-60s and that is not bad for august and a similar pattern to today were early morning fog and cloud cover dissipates leaving us with a mix of sunshine and clouds but even more sunshine on saturday with temperatures a little warmer so it means the course will dry up and some scores may go up. 90 for inland portions of the bay area on saturday and right around there again on sunday. we drop off a bit next week near normal for most of the
