7:46 am
their warmest temperature just shocking. how hot it did get up there along the pacific coast up to our north. it makes it feel a lot better in comparison. back here in the bay area. your view of the nor cal how the weather center forecast shows little bit of cloud cover this morning. you can see some of that low gray hanging out over berkeley. you're not looking at that further inland or in parts of the north bay. so quite the difference. there is. >> some low cloud cover and fog right up and down the coastline in the bay while much of the rest of the bay area actually under sunshine from san jose on over into ur inland east bay areas even up into the north bay too. now high pressure that brought that record shattering heat to the pacific northwest is gradually going to move east toward allowing a nice cool down to take shape to our north bay area we're also in a subtle cool down. it's not going to be near is noticeable, but it's going to at least take temperatures out of the 90's for most of our inland areas 60's 70's for your highs in sf today. 60's right along the coastline. expect some gray at least the vast majority of the day, right up the coast while
