of the bay area now started out pretty well lou, this cold front. >>early season storm system rolling through the bay area usually don't see anything like that to about the 3rd week in october so maybe just a sign. beginning to a good wet season, and we can only hope so more thunderstorms continuing across the northern sierra nevada there behind that we have the snow up the sierra nevada as well reports even a funnel cloud in the central valley, so it has been an active weather day unusually active for this time of year tomorrow morning we wake up low. we've got some partly cloudy skies to begin with double patches of fog right along the immediate coastline overnight lows going to be a little chilly. i think we're going to see some overnight lows dipping down in the 40's and some of the north bay valleys and by day we've got to see the sunshine and here we go we'll see some very nice temperatures little mild for this time of year in spots still warm in london by noon time you get some plan some near 70 degree temperatures inside the bay and 70's in the valleys 60's along the coastline will be a little breezy little cooler out toward the coastline in the afternoon. but just the lot of sunshine in the bay and 70's their highs up in the 80's. i think the warmer spots. well
inland so, yeah looks like a nice day for tomorrow, you're planning out your day tomorrow should be a dry day a fall feel to indeed as we're growing closer and closer now just a week away before fall actually officially begins 70's inside the bay about 72 degrees in redwood city, 70 in fremont 76 degrees in san jose about 79 degrees in livermore 82 degrees in concord and 66 deees and sepsis along the coastline. maybe couple patches of fog and some sunshine and police sunshine away from the coast. you see some 70's and some 80's in places like napa and also santa rosa, so looking out over the next couple days here we go got a lot of sunshine coming our way and looks like a nice day tomorrow. but then things change we've got a cold front this one a weaker system than the one that just went through today but certainly bringing with it. a chance we could see a couple of scattered light showers mainly north of the golden gate bridge. and then the system kind of just fall apart, a you know today we had like a half an inch of rain some the wet spots that's impressive to see this time of year i don't think we'll see this. this was just going to be much more spotty but still impressive
that we're talking about the chance of rain in this last full week of summer. i think we get a lot of part of the week we go the other direction high pressure starts to build in. we're going to see some of those offshore winds kicking in on friday and saturday i think this one a little more blustery than the previous events will see those 80's and 90's but i think we'll see fire dangers elevated as we get toward latter part of this next week which is pretty typical this time of year doesn't look like a real huge fire danger event but looks like it'll be a little more gusty fire danger even wall we're seeing snow in the sierra and that amazing and that's as we transition in fall. for sure all right thank you. and thank you for joining us, we'll see it tonight at 8 o'clock.
