a.m., it will be in the low 60s. danville is not getting above 73, 74 tomorrow for the daytime high. >> perfect. >> great weather. >> this is a time of year they should be closer to 90. >> but in san francisco we're not going to see that, right? >> let's talk about that, i think to be quite sure with san francisco, especially considering people are coming in for one of the bigger fire shows in the area. the question always is will the low clouds obscure the show. here's a good way to gauge where we are right now. we've got this perfectly placed giant measuring stick to tell us where the ceiling is on the clouds, how high up do you go before you hit the bottom of the clouds when the fireworks disappear. salesforce tower is a thousand feet high. milwaukee at times see the bay bridge. maybe not now. you can see the lights of the salesforce tower show happening. fireworks usually go up to a thousand feet, maybe a little higher. the good thing about this
weather pattern tomorrow, even though we're likely going to pull the city back, theshou stao the clouds and you get a great show. for san jose, that's what we're looking at here, you have relatively clear skies now. we're seeing the low clouds start to fill in. that's a good sign there, but it doesn't mean tomorrow night goes exactly like tonight. there are important differences. if we use the high resolution, clouds start building back in by 8:00. it starts to get dark 9:00. 9:00 to 10:30 is really the primetime for the fireworks display. you can see the clouds filling in. if you're in the south bay or inland you're a go. your shows will be fine. the question and the concern becomes right in that along the bay shoreline. it's a close call. we'll see how things go. go to the shows anyway. plenty of people will be there and you'll stem ill have fun. the other news is the
relati relative humidities are going up with this. we have significant fire concerns, but in a pattern like this we're keeping the rative ro illegal fireworks. ile're going to be. i mentioned that a few minutes ago. you don't get above 70 all day in santa rosa. it's going to be 80 in livermore. if we pull out other spots, danville, pleasanton hitting 80s. 80 in pleasanton. for santa rosa you're going to be 14 degrees below average for tomorrow's daytime high in the afternoon. san francisco is going to be right on the mark, average 67. you can see the spread. it's really the inland locations that are feeling this the most from this large pattern that's keep being the breeze going, now we can see the bay bridge at the top of the salesforce tower. b bundle up wherever you're going to be. it will be cold outside, breezy as well. make sure you're dressed for it. the temperatures tomorrow
morning will be similar when the fireworks go off, even if tomorrow afternoon will be a nice day. mix of high clouds, low clouds will melt back to the coast for the most part. you'll have a pretty day. here's why tomorrow is interesting. there actually is a storm off our coast. see the spin in the clouds here? there is an area of low pressure that's going to try and deliver some rain to sonoma county tomorrow. you can see it on the futurecast as the system works its way to northern california tomorrow. we don't get much rain out of this. it's really unique and odd to have that in july, an area of low pressure right off our coast. there is a chance of light showers going into monday morning from it. but the much bigger consequence of this is keeping that cool on shore breeze going. that area of low pressure allows the marine layer to go higher than it otherwise would have. low pressure allows it to rise up. that will pull those clouds just a little bit higher and that might be the saving grace tomorrow for some of these fireworks displays. we saw the marine layers at the top of the salesforce tower.
last night you couldn't see the top half of the thing because it was covered in clouds. so, subtle differences like that all go into this. anyway, slight chance of rain from that system, maybe. but it wouldn't be much, about 100th of an inch of rain will come in the morning. it will not impact your plany. f there's your seven-day is the our way. temperatures will climb to the middle 80s in san jose. that means we have to go back to the low 90s for some of our warmer inland locations. inland valleys and east bay which are going to have so unusually cool tomorrow, and for the first part of the week, do go back up to the low 90s by next weekend. okay, guys, back over to you. >> thank you, darren. coming up, if you haven't got the fixings for your barbecue, you might have sticker shock at the grocery store. just how much this celebration could cost you next. >> be sure to check out game day at the bottom of the hour.
