saw this the 7 day and the weekend looks pretty warm. but i'm thinkin further out. will there be any april showers not in the next 7 days but towards the end of april. >> we finally could get some rain returning to our bay area forecast. i don't want to tie the record set back in april. 1949 where we saw no rain in the bay area. so i'm keeping my fingers crossed because right now the only thing we really been tracking is drizzle. thanks the ball. carla right now off along the coast and it's thanks to her that we're actually going to stay pretty seasonable. even for friday as our inland areas start to warm up starting friday afternoon server downtown san francisco, very seasonable temperatures in the low 60's mid 50's. for those of you at half moon, bay and pacific up daly city in the low 50's. so we're still going to get that cool sea breeze influence keeping our temperatures along the coast. very seasonable. so near average highs. but we're going to start to notice some
changes as we make our way inland widespread low from brisbane to burlingame. mostly sunny skies could see some patchy coastal drizzle for your friday morning. but then by friday afternoon going to see a warm-up with redwood city in woodside warming up into the low 70's mid for san mateo and san carlos san jose 71 degrees with campbell also in the low 70's. but check out livermore already starting to warm up in the mid 70's when you should be in the upper 60's this time of year. so you're going to get the first appetizer of this weekend warm-up. that's heading our way peaking on sunday. walnut creek and conquered in the mid 70's. but along the coast of the east bay shoreline still going to stay pretty seasonable mid 60's for oakland. exactly where you should be this time of year. richmond warming up to 68 degrees with mid 70's. for those of you in napa and delay hope. check out that the bill, 80 degrees, though. so already going to start to see some toasty temperatures by your
friday afternoon in or warmest inland spots in santa rosa and nevado in the mid 70's. but then we're all going to warm up on saturday. so tonight will really be the last night that will really see paul carla, because by this weekend thanks to that warm up, we're going to see less and less of the marine layer as temperatures peak anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees above average by sunday, little change on monday. but the good thing just seen models are hinting at some showers later this month. so i don't want to tie a record set back in 1949 of not seeing any april showers in the bay area that looks to be the case. so we hope to break and not even tie that record. back to you. thanks so much to risa. >> a group of house and senate democrats have now introduced a bill which would expand the number of seats on the supreme court. but not everyone is on board with this plan and our washington correspondent basil john joining us now with the latest, especially with how lawmakers, including how democrats are reacting to this
