lot of healing that's going to have to happen. that is both physical. an emotional. there's no question that this experience. something that is going to linger in terms of the trauma. >> this marks the vice president's second trip to illinois over the past few weeks on june harris was in plainfield and chicago for events. >> not every service member as we see the full recognition they deserve today, we're setting the record straight. >> a special ceremony at the white house this morning. president biden awarded the medal of honor to for u.s. army soldiers who fought in the vietnam war. those man had been decorated for their valor, but had their awards upgraded to the nation's highest military honor. president recognize specialist 5th class dwight birdwell major john duffy, specialist 5th class dennis fujii and the

concord and 76 degrees in santa rosa. the sea breeze continuing. and it will do so overnight tonight, deep enough bringing that marine layer % well on shore all the way in the central valley overnight tonight. so it going to be a thick blanket of fog developing around the bay area. but look what off the coastline missing? a little swirl in the atmosphere rescheduled a little low pressure center that's out there right now. that's going to really kind enforce that marine their move further on shore, probably deep enough that we're talking drizzle along the coastline. again, maybe couple patches inside the bait. here's the good news with that fresh ocean air. we've got the fresh, a bay area or to all around all the way to the valleys, looking good air quality wise. and that's way it's going to stay kind of interesting here, though. watch what in the atmosphere. we've got that low off the coastline approaching the coast deepens. the marine layer and you got fog and low clouds everywhere. tomorrow morning. maybe a the slick for the roadways early on tomorrow morning by the afternoon, a pull back to the coastline. but then again, we've got another swirl in the atmosphere. you see that right there. that will factor into thursday and friday to bring
us another round of some low clouds and fog. but i think overall, i think we'll see a slow warming trend of the weekend that starts to get hot as we head in towards sunday into monday of next week. temperatures drop 15 60's and the san francisco about 60 degrees in daly city. a lot of fog along the coastline and some drizzle to was very wet out there today. 66 degrees in millbrae. 67 in burlingame, 72 degrees of warmth in redwood city. 73 amount to the south in joint temperatures of the mid 70's tomorrow afternoon. up some morning fog, a foggy skies early on in the east bay, too. but by the afternoon near the 7 th running a little bit below the average for this time of year, but not by much. 75 degrees in pittsburgh. 77 in benicia back toward the coastline. we'll keep those temperatures cooler with that fog 50's and 60's there about 75 in nice and sunny by the afternoon in santa rosa. here we go. look at our the next few days will watch those temperatures march of the scale a bit into friday, a little more sunshine as we head in toward the weekend that we start to crank up the temperatures. i think on sunday getting hot inland back in the 90's getting close to triple digits by next week.
