1:45 am
next few days. that line really takes off. by the time we've got to sunday, concord, you are one of those few spots that could hit 90. most other places for inland parts of the bay area come in at the upper 80s. if we jump ahead to sunday, and it is too early to put an exact number on a daytime high for sunday, it is a little too far out. but this is the possibility, so it's good to start talking about it now. if we hit 90 in concord, what is the record? it's 87. so we will beat that. san jose, 85, 91 is your record. san francisco, you will miss it. 78 degrees on sunday will still be a noticeably warm day in the city. i will have the rest of the forecast in a few minutes. another night of unrest following the fatal police

1:56 am
>> i can't speak to the boba shortage, but everything else really does fit in with the spring. this is when you e si today, how is it that you could have snowfall so close to the bay area? there was a subtle sign of what is going on if you looked at the marine layer. you can see the golden gate bridge in the time lapse. the marine layer is coming in kind of high. oftentimes it is coming in so low. but when you have lower pressure, the marine layer is able to go higher. right now, that is what we've got over pretty much the entire west. the big area of low pressure, just centered a little too far east for us to have gone any rain out of it. you can see that counterclockwise flow. now you can really see it. so that area of low pressure
1:57 am
had bad aim in terms of us experiencing it in any other way besides that subtle higher- l marine level. but the mountains did get close to a foot of snow today. they had to bring out plows at a certain time. but as that starts to leave, things start to get back to normal for us. and by friday the marine layer is back. it will be one of those days where we wake up and it is gray all the way inland. that is the bay bridge out there. so just normal weather for now through friday. you can see it in the numbers here. mid-50s for morning lows, daytime highs tomorrow pretty much exactly what we did today. low 70s inland and mid-60s for much of the bay. this big warm-up doesn't really get going until the weekend.
1:58 am
for saturday and sunday, look at the daytime highs, mid to upper 80s and i showed you that 90 at the top of the newscast. but only a few spots will make it to 90. in general, mid to upper 80s is still going to be noticeably warm. we will start cooling down by next week. another game, another record for the golden state warriors. we got that, and did we have
