dropping into the 30s. lots of cloud cover. scattered isolated showers. look at this. it's beautiful. it is textbook perfect. there's the leading precipitation, but that is where it wants to stay. the bulk of the rain will remain offshore. is this your future cast. this is your 10:00 a.m. santa cruz mountains. then hit and miss showers through midday. the evening commute. saturday morning, that's the last band and turning partly cloudy during the day on saturday. clouds swipe through on sunday. here's how we are planning out your forecast. with the rain moving in, up to a half an inch of precipitation. temperatures are going to be coming down. 50s and 60s. about 64, 65 outside number. 64 degrees in antioch. north of the golden gate bridge, 63. the extended forecast does call for warmer temperatures over the weekend. and really a dry forecast.
