going start to break down. we start to see these temperatures come back down so way above the average today, 12 degrees above normal in san francisco. for the record, 73 as high as 14 degrees above normal in the san jose and live more. you're looking at 69 degrees 71 in concord and 69 in santa rosa. they're the offshore wind right now. you see the arrows pointing back toward the sea and that is bringing with it. some nice clear conditions across the bay area now. but just to the south begin to see a suddenly surge here. that's important. we're going to see a little fog developing. we're seeing that already making its way up along the coastline about push into the monterey bay won't be long before it makes its way along the coastline here and a cool down our temperatures for tomorrow. so overnight tonight, even though we've got a bit of an offshore wind. you can see here just some light offshore last night was kind of gusty in spots. so light offshore when the kind of breaks down as you get to the coastline because of that fog is going to settle in along the coastline think as we head toward tomorrow morning tonight, mostly clear and cool some patchy fog out there along the coastline and some of that into the delta as
10:44 pm
well. tomorrow, mostly sunny, it's going to be a little bit cooler. specially coast side and just inside the bay and then we'll cool down even further over the weekend. but staying dry into the weekend, too high pressure, boy, this dome of high pressure has been so persistent. all in november now, the first day of december bringing us the record temperatures. all that rain streaming well to the north of us now. but things are going to start to break down a little bit will notice even as early as tomorrow, that's high pressure will slide just a little bit to the east. you can see this low begin to move a little closer. and that means now we're going to cool down the temperatures, bring us more fog along the coastline. still warm inside the bay and warm in the valleys. but things are changing now as we're going to see finally a cold front to get a drop in the bay area. here's our long-range forecast model and you'll notice as we head through the weekend, high pressure in control. these storms getting a little bit closer. but then again, most of that energy head of well to the north even by sunday most that rain still up and toward the pacific northwest. watch what as we head in toward monday as a ridge begins to retrograde. that means pulls away from the coastline that
10:45 pm
allows the front to drop to possibly through some showers as we head in toward monday into tuesday. another chance of rain, possibly late next week. so that's the good news. chance showers coming our way, but not tomorrow as we'll see more of those temperatures running well above the average lot of 70's away from the immediate coastline next few days. going to keep things a little bit cooler into the weekend. chance of raindrops late monday night and into tuesday. again, these not huge storms, but at least it could be a change that could be leading to more on the way. all right. good news. thank you. all right. >> coming up next in sports, the forty-niners get ready for another big game this sunday, this one in seattle sports director jason dumas has coach shanahan stops on the shanahan stops on the seahawks. coming up. rn about c9 the more questions and worries we have. calhope can help with free covid-19 emotional support. call 833-317-4673 or live chat at calhope.org today.
