7:16 pm
happening weatherwise as we head into easter weekend, you can the people making their way to the beach there. stronger on shore breeze has kicked in, it will continue to kick in as we head into easter weekend, so as we wind the clock forward from saturday into sunday, we are talking about near average temperatures as we go through easter sunday and it is going to be a dry weekend, the drive forecast is going to be sticking around for a while, very limited rain chances farther down the line. right now as we look out across the bay, temperatures all over the place, anywhere from 51 degrees downtown to low to mid 60s farther inland for livermore and concord. things are starting to even out a little bit, and will even out in the 40s by early tomorrow morning. not much variation here. 41 in santa rosa in napa, to 49
7:17 pm
degrees and sentences go. some fog and low cloud cover to start the day on saturday, the future cast outlining in red the areas where the fog will be the guest in a starts to back up as we head towards midmorning and it should be mainly confined to coastal areas as we head into midday in the afternoons of temperatures will warm up, just a matter of how much. here along the coast, not a whole lot. along the bay, temperatures will be below average, near average temperatures farther inland, mid to upper 60s bubut that will l feel coolol cocompa how spspoiled haveve been recen along ththe coast, mid 50s, th wowould actualally be warmrmer papacifico ononly been upup to degrees for a high. upper 60s to around 70 in the santa clara valley. tri-valley reaches the mid-60s with some low 70s on the east side of the diablo range. that is not too bad for early april and around the bay, slightly below average, upper 50s for san francisco, low 60s for the east bay and low to mid 60s and the north bay. some of the fog may be holding on a little bit longer there. farther north temperatures in the mid to upper 60s for mendocino and lake counties. rain chances, what rain chances? maybe a slight chance by friday, 20% is not worth putting any rain icons in the seven-day forecast and the pollen count will remain skyhigh as we head towards the next several days without any rain to wash that stuff from
7:18 pm
the air. tempatures don't change much as we head into the seven-day forecast. low to mid 60s around the bay with mid to upper 50s along the coast, and returning live here in pacifica. well, it is chilly. it is breezy, but there were a lot of people out here enjoying the fact that the pier is reopening. good to see some return to normalcy, both in terms of the number of people out as the pandemic hopefully is drawing closer to the end but also enjoying the fact that the peer has reopened after that damage that happened back in january. i will be back indoors for the 11:00 news and i may be somewhat thought out by then as well. >> it's chilly, it is breezy, it is pacifica. here is look at your top headlines. the suspect who plowed his car into a police barricade at the u.s. capitol today made several claims on social media that the government was after him. 25-year-old noah green was shot
