good morning to you. can you guess where we're looking? this is our camera over walnut creek, and we see a little bit of the haze there in the distance. the fog maybe that vianey is tracking is really thick in some
4:47 am
spots and could make for some rough driving this morning, v. >> yeah, especially up through the north bay and in through livermore, even down to the south bay i'm starting to notice some of that fog rolling in. let's get right to your forecast because this is a great shot of san francisco. we've been seeing this hazy sunshine and i feel like yesterday it's also a little chilly in the afternoon, right? it started to dip down into the 50s. it was kind of a cloudy with a little bit of sunshine, so 50 degrees right now in san jose. yesterday we did have a couple of 30s on the map and we are going to see that again today, especially through some of those sheltered valleys. satellite/radar right now, this is a live look so things will remain calm. we have high pressure that's rebuilding, but i do want to get you to your fog because look at this. santa rosa, napa, down to a quarter of a mile. even less than that in novato. so the north bay has been waking up with that dense fog, but we're also seeing fog into parts of livermore, down through san jose you can see there, down to about five miles and even less than that, morgan hill, gilroy
4:48 am
area, down to a quarter of a mile. so that fog and visibility factor is going to linger for the first half of your morning. as far as temperatures go, 30s in some spots. look at this, 39 in novato, 39 in fairfield. we're pretty mild in the south bay right now and around the coastline in the 40s compared to areas up to the north bay. but i love comparing how we're doing compared to the rest of the nation so let's take a look. san jose right now is 50 degrees. meanwhile in new york city, 34. but if you look at green bay where our 49ers will be playing, it's 17 degrees right now so i really hope our niners are getting prepped for the chilly temperatures that they're going to encounter heading into saturday. i'll have a closer look at that forecast coming up in a few minutes. let's look at your forecasted highs for today. 63 in san jose. so actually we're going to warm up a little by a few degrees because of this high pressure compared to yesterday. as it continues to strengthen over the bay area, danville 63, oakland 57. not much of a change around the peninsula, in the upper 50s or
4:49 am
the city upper 50s as well. up through the north bay 63 for clear lake, sonoma 60 degrees. and your long-range outlook still looks dry through the end of january, so not much has changed. the only thing that's going to pick up is going to be the wind, especially heading into friday and saturday. but you'll start to notice it as early as today and even into tomorrow for some of those higher elevation areas, above 1,000 feet in the mountaintops. so san francisco seven-day forecast, i've taken this all the way through next tuesday and we don't have a single drop of rain in sight. looks a little more hopeful for the first couple of weeks of february. we'll keep a close eye on that but the wind will pick up, especially heading into saturday and sunday as well. we're talking 20, 30, 40 plus miles per hour for some of the higher elevation areas. notice the increase in temperatures. we bump up into those upper 60s into the weekend. it will be a lovely weekend. i'll send it back to you. >> i'll need you to remind me about my patio furniture later
