opening up a little bit overnight, that's allowing for the fog and the deep chill that we feel out there in parts of the bay area. so this morning chili with the dense fog north and east and then looking for bright sun in the afternoon and dry conditions as we get into tomorrow, but there's a slight chance of a shower or show that to you right here. here's a look at our forecast animation where we still have that fog through nine o'clock are dense fog advisory through about 10 and then look what happens as we go through the afternoon. it is sunny. it's bright. it's a nice afternoon, two o'clock on sunday and we're looking at some higher clouds stopping this early monday morning, six o'clock and you can see looks like a few areas what we could actually see some moisture being squeezed out, but at this point, it looks really remote. so we'll call for cloudy skies and then looking at the afternoon, breaking out into more sunshine on monday, so let's take the rainfall totals as far as we can out towards january, 17th a week from monday
5:22 am
and noticed only a couple hundreds out there. maybe 1/10 of an inch up in nukaya. we're getting into a dry trend, and it's going to last throughout our extended outlook. so your highest today really near average, so finally taking the chill out of the air as we get through the afternoon that son setting just a little bit later . 57 it's better than before. five o'clock, right? how about 56 today in san mateo, as well as palo alto, looking at 58 in san jose? 57 in santa rosa. the accurately 70 forecasts wherever fog, especially north and east bay this morning, it's cold and then upper fifties later on today, a few more high clouds another chilly start, maybe a sprinkle into early monday. then we are milder. with more sunshine. tuesday wednesday, maybe another chance of rain on thursday, but we're putting the brakes on the rain for a while is all right. at least we got it this week. thanks, lisa. just add it's being called the great resignation during the pandemic, the science pointing to new waves of workers quitting their
