well. 100 lightning strikes in some places. no fog at the golden gate bridge. that's how you know it's going to be a warm one tomorrow. the winds are blowing in such a direction that we expect temperatures to drop a few. santa rosa, 97 today. 89 tomorrow. a little bit less of a compressional heating day and temperatures in santa rosa will be closer to normal. about 90. cooler in san francisco with a little more of a sea breeze. same with concord, a few degrees cooler. tomorrow is a cooler day. not cool, just cooler. and then it warms up for the weekend so that high pressure is building out of the desert southwest and when it comes that way, the hotspots are those eastern valleys, eastern sacramento, eastern san joaquin valley because the heat just kind of rolls in from that direction. that's why the expensive heat warning will most likely be in effect for friday and saturday to sunday from redding south to bakersfield for the entire central valley with temperatures to 110 possible. so for the weekend, that's sort of the weather headline. hot. then tomorrow's temperature footprint, cooler than today.
