the one behind it. that's a real possibility. look at the front right there. that is the following weekend begin to the 23rd or so there's a chance we could be talking about a cold front rolling through the bay area. it happens in april. even have sometimes and on a really good year. we couldn't get them all the way to do. but this one of those real dry year. so we'll see how things work out 80's this weekend as we get into the latter part of next week. will things get a little bit iffy and then it looks like we've got some cooler weather on the way as we head in toward next weekend if we get lucky, maybe just baby, a couple first time i've heard you say that yet why there's been nothing look at this been so dry. even on the models. unbelievable. yeah. fingers crossed. yeah. thanks. wants some. well, coming up next. a new cdc study details. the latest advice on pandemic air travel. >> but you want to know before boarding a flight. the
