6:17 pm
for us over the next few days. not like what we had last week we will not go back into the mid-80s, but we will warm back up into the low 70s for a good part of this coming week. it was mid-to upper 60s today so this will be subtle but just enough that it is something worth pointing out. high clouds out there now and tomorrow morning it will be the low stratus cloud pointed out in the top of the newscast and we are getting back into that season now where we wake up with the low clouds through the morning better great and burns back by late morning and i will show you more of that in the next half hour. if 68 where the average daytime high for this this time of year, there is the orange wavy line that shows us we won't be too far off the mark for the next several days. so well going from 68 to 71 tech nucleus a warm-up, you don't notice much here and not necessarily in the afternoons. i think it is the rnings with the return of the low clouds when you notice a difference. this is probably the number one
6:18 pm
aspect of that. there is not a single temperature on here tomorrow morning that goes down into the upper 30s. so this is another sign and here we are in early april and things are starting to change and the coolest number on here is 43 up in napa, but santa rosa is usually the one that gets picked on the most for those cold morning those and now we go down to 48 tomorrow so a big difference there. and for the daytime highs tomorrow, these are all almost exactly what we did today but justin review, in case you don't know exactly what that number was, palo alto was 64 and union 6062. a little further into the upper 60s here for inland, contra costa and inland alameda county and dublin ghost 63 and it will be a few degrees shy of 70 up in concord and san rafael will go to 64 tomorrow and upper 50s in the immediate bay , we will go into the low 60s and places like berkeley. we will be that close to 70 for

6:20 pm
but they won't get here either. it's a long way of saying forget the idea of rain because it is april and not a big rain month for us anyway. march already let us down in a big way in that regard and we can't blame april that much. >> who is your pick to win the masters next week? i do have somebody coming up that you may want to check out and add to your list. and reaction from the stanford w

6:26 pm
and into the gap in the ball hits off the glove allowing 2 more runs to score and he allowed 5 runs enough 6-2 in the 6th inning, chris over the other fine and they 3 run off and the game blown open and it got so bad that the a's outfielder came into the pitch at the ninth inning and he allowed in infield single in his pitching debut and his family jacked out of their minds but the astros won the game 9-2 and they sleep the series and oakland 0-4 start for the first time since 1987. >> would today be the day that jordan to get his first win in four years and he came into the final-round and they came into the lead and he set up a birdie and a two shot lead in on 16 charlie from the fringe and it is a fist pump birdie and the lead is down to 1. 17th hole

6:48 pm
in this case there are very thin serous clouds in between us and the sun and so high in the atmosphere they are composed almost entirely of small ice crystals. when you put sunlight through ice crystals, think of like the cover for like pink floyd's dark side of the moon how the light gets shifted is a goes through it. that is what happened today. we will show you what a little ice crystal would look like in these things are perfectly shaped and we will see on the weather computer and you can see the six sides to this. when the sunlight goes to one of these crystals and these things are so small and like smaller than the width of a human hair but there are enough of them an important to know they bend the light. when you bend the light around the sun you get one of those halos. that was the serous clouds and there are other clouds we need to talk about coming our way for tomorrow and if you look at high resolution satellite from space and those are the clouds moving fast and the sunlight was able to go through them and that is what is coming our way tonight and into tomorrow and that is a much more familiar
6:49 pm
cloud for us. and that is the marine layer. if we put this into the future cast we will take that back to the low mid-level clouds and much lower than the serous clouds, but these are the kind of clouds that bring in that what gray blanket and you know the drill and it is early april but we do see a lot of this and the last two mornings we looked at gray skies like that until about 10:00 in the morning before it burns back to the coast and the main thing it does is it takes you warm for tomorrow morning and i don't have a single temperature on here tomorrow that goes down and that is a gift up in santa rosa where it will be 48 and you can think the marine layer for doing that and it is gone by late morning so it allows the temperatures to warm up and we will be about two or 3 degrees warmer tomorrow for daytime highs that we were today with plenty of sunshine
