north bay, novato, north of san rafael, we're looking at a clear drive and a clear view, look at that beautiful shot in the city where all those lights are. great drive. mike, we are on the same page. look at the shot i picked. look at that, we both agreed it's really pretty. and mike was talking about the traffic with it. it is a beautiful shot. it really showcases the lights and the weather. we do have some fog through parts of the north bay as well, but let's take a look right now at satellite and radar. as you know, we had a cut off low from the south that brought a little bit of sprinkle activity. a lot of it didn't make it to the ground. we can still spot some of it mainly over central california. that's going to make for a humid day down through monterey and also, the temperatures are going to remain mild. no major changes in the temperatures, but it is a little chilly through novato right now. it's about 39 degrees. we did drop down into the 30s. santa rosa 44, san jose 44 degrees, and let's take a look at your fog and visibility. down to a quarter of a mile for
4:48 am
santa rosa and novato and napa. it's very focused through the north bay. the rest of the bay area is doing okay when it comes to the fog. forecasted highs for today, we are going to get afternoon sun. it's not going to be as cloudy as it was in some spots yesterday, and our daytime highs are going to be a little cooler up to the north bay, but very similar down through the south bay. 62 degrees in san jose, 60 degrees in concord. 58 degrees in oakland, 57 in san francisco, and 59 degrees in napa. your air quality outlook, we're going to remain moderate for the most part. i did see a bump in the north bay to 82. this stays within the frame of moderate between 51 and 100 for the air quality index. we should be okay there as well as the long range outlook, that dry pattern still continues, but heading into tonight and into tomorrow, we are expecting to see some of that wind start to kick up, especially for the higher elevation areas in the mountains. so by sunday, that high pressure continues to dominate.
4:49 am
it rolls back in in strength. over the next seven days, no big changes in the forecast. we stay consistent tuesday, wednesday, thursday, look at the daytime highs in the upper 50s. if you're looking ahead already into next weekend, this is where we're going to really see the wind pick up. it's going to get breezy, getting really gusty as well by early saturday morning. we'll keep a close eye on that. we're going to head over to our climate in crisis, and of course you heard about that volcanic eruption off the island in tonga. that volcano sent tsunami warnings and advisories across the west coast. the powerful underwater volcano impacted much of the pacific rim. scientists have known that large volcanic eruptions can have an immediate and perhaps a year long impact on global climate. as scientists work to understand the phenomenon, the early data from this weekend' eruption indicated it was too small to have a telling impact on climate change. according to scientists, volcano sulfates are particularly good at impacting global climate
4:50 am
change unlike man made emissions that remain in the atmosphere for days and weeks on end. during a massive eruption, the sulfur dioxide gets lofted, many times miles into the stratosphere, high above where most weather happens and can remain there for months to years. mount pinatuba resulted in a global temperature decline of one degree fahrenheit during the year following its eruption. for more climate change stories just like this one, check out our climate in crisis tab at we give you a lot of useful information and of course your bay area hot spots where you can make a difference. things are not getting easier for tonga, now volcanic ash from that eruption is delaying aid to the nation. new zealand's military trying to bring supplies but they can't make the trip because of ash on the runways. some in the bay area are
