the wetter. >> we are. interesting weather. chilly temperatures in the valleys but some windy weather across the hill tops. a look at the winds in a moment. right now, san francisco, 54 degrees, no fog around as you go into san jose, still in the 50s. not much wind in san jose. different story, though, on the higher peaks east of downtown. 47 in dublin and over towards walnut creek and concord, now down to 48 degrees. know tis the winds. southeast at 5, but a different story on the mountain tops and we're going to look at those winds in a moment. first, tomorrow's air quality. moderate, as the offshore breezes start to back off a bit. i think you're going to notice haze in the air, especially as we get towards monday and tuesday. so, now a look at those peak wind gusgusts. we'll see gusts from around 30 to 40 miles per hour. mainly for elevations above 3,000 feet and as we drop down to the diablo range and santa
cruz mountains, breezes at times near the tops of the summits and the ridges, but not the valleys. the north bay by tomorrow morning, looking like a chilly start. lots of 40s across the board. by lunchtime, mid 60s. a little less wind later in the day in the hills. upper 60s around the south bay. mid 60s around the tri-valley and upper 60s around san francisco to oakland. as we get towards monday and tuesday, here's our first chance of maybe just a few showers. notice, we got a lot of clouds for tuesday morning. but the futurecast really not showing much in the way of any showers around the bay area. that is likely to stay off to the north and that is a trend that will follow us as we get to thanksgiving day on thursday. clouds at times but the rain-producing clouds staying off to the north through friday, saturday and very likely by this time next weekend, still no rain on the map, but as we talked
about earlier this evening, the long-range plan as we get into the 29th and the 30th may finally open up the storm door a little bit. but waiting until the last day of the month to get some rain back in here. but in the meantime, we've got some nice weather to wrap up the weekend. chilly morning temperatures. nice afternoon. san francisco in the mid 60s. thanksgiving looking at overcast skies at times. and around the valleys we'll see a chilly start, followed up by sunshine tomorrow afternoon and cooler temperatures midweek, thanksgiving holiday weekend looks dry. seven-day forecast is dry, but fingers crossed, ten-day forecast towards the end of the month hopefully will bring that pattern change which would mean rain here and we need the snow in the sierra, too. both look to be in the cards. >> that's good. >> fantastic. and thanksgiving travel out of the way before it comes in. well done, rob. you get all the credit. let's check in with anthony flores right now and sometimes the big game isn't big, but boy, for one team today, it was huge. >> if you are a cal bear -- >> i did go there.
