round. whenever the earth casts a shadow on the moon, it's always a curve. so they used that to figure out the earth was a atmosphere, and you can do it yourself. it's astonishing. it's just astonishing. >> reporter: and if you think it's a nice view from earth, imagine if you were standing on the moon right now. >> the eagle has landed. >> reporter: the massive disc of the earth covering up the sun. but in totality, something weird happens. instead of going totally dark, the earth is surrounded by a brilliant red halo. that's the refraction of every sunrise and sunset on the face of the earth now shining on to the moon. and that's why the moon turns blood red at totality. what if your kids ask you questions and you don't have the answer? >> let's go to the internet. some of you might have paper books around that will describe this phenomenon. >> and here's what's happening. the full moonrises at 8:02 p.m. sunday night already in partial
eclipse. it enters blood red totality at 8:09 the p.m. deepest eclipse at 9:12 and totality ends at 9:54 when the moon begins to climb out of earth's shadow, leaving an indelible impression behind. >> when you see the moon turn this crazy burgundy red color, i hope it changes you. i hope you look at the world, your place on the world a little differently. >> i'm science editor brian hackney, kpix 5. >> books. remember those? >> paper? >> paper. >> i still like books. physical books. >> about half and half with the hab let and books. but yeah, i like book. >> books are fine until you have to read cat in the hat 18 times at bedtime. >> i'm probably not going to have to do that to my dogs. so i'm standing by the life choice i have made and you can evaluate accordingly.
let's takeoo at what happens. subdivision evening, there is going to be some passing clouds for the second half of the weekend. but if you get high enough in elevation you should be able to see that as the moon comes up. the eclipse is already going to be happening at this point. we'll talk more about the timing if you miss that, and brian's story coming up at 7:00. warmer temperatures in the short-term. we already warmed up today. we're going to warm up even more tomorrow. the storm track is still active. it's just pushed up to our north. so the rain chances are going to completely avoid us as we head through the weekend and into next week. yesterday we were talking about an outside maybe there a chance of a couple of showers on thursday. no. those rain chances have diminished to recan round it down to zero percent. nothing to wash the pollan out of the atmosphere. there is going to be a wind shift on sunday. and that's going to help to drop the pollen count. still in the medium category sunday, monday and tuesday with oak, mulberry and grass pollen. you can see the fog in the distance hanging out along the coast. that's going make a move later
on this evening and into tonight. temperatures were dramatically warmer, especially inland. 81 degrees in santa rosa and concord. got up to 77 in san jose. up to just above 70 in fremont. mid 60s in san francisco. slightly above average. that's where we expected to be. and right at 60 degrees along the coast in pacifica. those coastal temperatures in san francisco maybe two or three degrees warmer tomorrow. but several degrees warmer farther inland for saturday's high temperatures. you're heading out this evening, it's nice out there. 60s around the bay. mostly 70s inland. still holding on to 81 in fairfield and santa rosa. the numbers should be down to the upper 70s once we get the 6:00 update. down to the 50s in half moon bay, but it's a nice day along the coast as well. the fog is going to spread to the inland valleys by early tomorrow morning. if that stuck around long enough, it would slow down the warm-up, but it's not going to stick around too long. it's going to back up towards the coast rapidly. should be clearing out by 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 at the latest on saturday. so temperatures will have plenty of time to warm-up, from the low to mid-50s for most of us, which is normal for this time of year.
the coolest spots in the upper 40s up to the 80s inland and well into the 70s for oakland and in east bay. temperatures 5 to 10 degrees above normal around the bay. closer to a dozen degrees average farther inland. temperatures along the coast, the onshore breeze is still going to be with us. you still get to climb to the low 60s a couple of degrees warmer than today. you get over that first range of hills and temperatures reach the upper 70s and low 80s around the south end of the bay with mid to even upper 80s in the santa clara valley. up to 85 in san jose and 85 in santa clara as well. mostly mid 80s for the tri-valley. but closer to 90 degrees for concord and pleasant hill. the spots most likely to get up to or above 90 brentwood and fairfield. 92 degrees in fairfield. it should be the hot spot tomorrow. close to 70 degrees in san francisco. just barely short. low to mid-70s for oakland and the east bay. and low to mid-80s for most of the north bay. a little warmer as you go farther inland. that's true as we go farther north. into the 80s for mendocino county and lake county. if you're running bay to
breakers on sunday morning or just going to be spectating, we found a safe background image to use for television. it's going to be breezy. it's going to be cool. temperature in the mid-50s for that 8:00 start time. warming up fractionally, but the fog and the onshore breeze going to be battle against those nners trying to make their way through that 12-kilometer course. temperatures are going to return to near average by monday, tuesday and wednesday. some subtle little ups and downs to the temperature pattern, but basically running within a couple of degrees of what's normal this time of year. a little more cool down by late next week thursday and friday, as another storm system in the upper-levels of the atmosphere drifts closer to us. unfortunately it's not on a trajectory that's going to send any moisture towards the bay area, which is typical for late may. the rain chances tend to be fewer and farther between. we will take a look at the dog walking forecast for this evening coming up at 6:00. >> all right, paul, thanks. i'm allen martin, coming up new at six, the bay area now has the highest covid infection rates in california. the warning from top health officials. plus --
