increased by 177% last year alone. already taking a look at the weather for the friday and the weekend, which is just around the corner. now, kind of, uh, kind of an interesting week because we had the holiday on monday and temperatures have been kind of the cool side it's gradually warming into this weekend. but it doesn't get hot . for most of us. most of us it stays reasonable. but by saturday and my sunday, especially inland spots could hit 95, but that's not really a typical and then temperatures on tuesday are going to cool after that. so here's today's highs highs tomorrow will will be very similar to these. i think maybe we'll add a degree in the inland bay valleys. there's a little bit of patchy fog at the coast, but not a lot. fox had a tough time for me. and because of that low we keep talking about this guy so that their blood busts up the inversion gives us cooler air, higher humidity and better help for cal fire and fire concerns, which we've we saw the results of that low this week
and that it we had fires, but really, cal fire getting a good handle on because of the higher humidities and so on. this high is going to build in a little bit on saturday and sunday, and that's really where the war means coming from, and when it's really all going to be about the desert southwest in terms of big heat. but for us, it's going to bleed into the central valley, which bleed into our ellen bei valleys, which will put us in our hotspots on sunday, maybe into the mid nineties. but again , that's not crazy heat that's pretty much what you'd expect for this time of year. so with that in mind, the fog returns to the coast late tonight, early tomorrow morning, overnight lows where they have been humidity stays high quality stays pretty darn good with that lot with that strong onshore flow and then tomorrow morning. this is the fog or low cloud footprint, and then you can see it burns back and then the yellows seventies and oranges or eighties and that's pretty much where we will exist in the seventies and eighties with coastal areas in the mid sixties. so forecast highs tomorrow for your friday
saturday will be a little bit warmer, perhaps and then our little bit cooler part me and then a little warmer on sunday and then a little warmer on monday, and then it cooled down as we head into tuesday, so the five day forecast will start being concerned about. we're always concerned about fire. but i think on sunday and monday fire concerns are going to ratchet up a little bit. no red flag warnings, but just because of the year we've had i wouldn't be surprised to see you know, a couple of brushfires along the freeway start or something like that. so there's five day forecast. i'll see you back here on sunday night. all right, bill. thank you. this is how we heal. that's the message of these pieces of art coming up new at 11 tonight how an artist forced from her home by last year's massive halldor fire in the sierra. is now using what's left to help bring hope to others.
