11:17 pm

11:18 pm
i mentioned i had good news in regards to the forecast tomorrow. watch what happens to those thunderstorms. they are playing our way. stopper there. as we get into the afternoon they are really stretched out. the way the winds have changed, it wants to pull some of the action further off the coast. which means it spreads out whatever thunderstorm energy there is. which means, now, we've got a better chance that they will miss us as a comes across northern california tomorrow. that's what it looks like by the time we get into the afternoon. this is when we get into the heart of the red flag warning. notice most of the actions of the sierra- this is tomorrow. this is just one forecast run on this. it's not going to look exactly like this tomorrow. it's not like we are going to a thunderstorm near livermore at exactly 7:00. this is a good representation
11:19 pm
of what it will look like. there is not a lot to it. this is good news. again, remember, it says so much more about how dry the landscape is. we only need one stray strike of haveg problem on our hands. that's why we have the problem on our hands. but thunderstorms coming our way are not a big deal. there some lightning off in the distance. not this year. this year it's a much bigger deal. morning lows for tomorrow go into the low 50s. the demise of to what they did today. in case you didn't notice today, we started a warm-up. we went up about 10 degrees for a lot of inland locations. it's part of the same pattern tied into the center of high- pressure driving the storms our way. was squashed to the marine layer today. didn't get far enough inland,
11:20 pm
as it had. tomorrow will be just like that . we will be in the mid-70s for many communities in the bay. low 80s, mid-80s in santa rosa. wave that san francisco, oakland and san jose first. we will fill everybody else in, and the second. let's get the three major committees. look at the difference from the mid-60s and 70s in san francisco to around 80 and san jose. if we look at this a slightly different way let's take inland eastland here. think inland contra costa, inland alameda county, that's your line. this would be more like santa rosa's numbers. you can see there are significant enough differences. it is worth pointing that out, when you do a seven day like this. at the beach, this is the way it has looked for the last several months in the way i will look for the next several months. as i used to say in the 1970s, it's not just one sports
