upper 50s and low 60s for most of us. pretty normal for the last morning of july. high temperatures tomorrow very close to average for july 31st, right around 60 along the coast. mostly 70 to around 80 degrees around the south end of the bay and down the peninsula with temperatures in the 80s in the santa clara valley, from 81 to san jose to 89 degrees for los gatos and morgan hill. warmer and warmer as you had farther inland. same is true for inland parts of the east bay. upper 80s to around 94 the tri valley come into the mid to low 90s for fairfield, antioch and brentwood, not as warm around vallejo and benicia. temperatures around the bay exactly average for this time of your. mid-60s for san francisco, a mix of 60s and low 70s for the east bay with temperatures in the northbay topping out around 80 degrees in most locations. this may be a degree or two below normal but you don't mind that wind out of the southwest is going to help bring some marine air into the northbay. but not too far. temperatures only reaching 100 degrees for ukiah and well into 94 inland mendocino county and ke county as well temperatures in san francisco d day as we head inearly next week. droppi kld hove the
upper 60s through midweek. temperatures in san jose just staying right around 80 degrees, slightly below average but pleasantly warm. a bit more of a warm-up for everybody by thursday and friday, and that's true for inland parts of the east bay and the northbay as well. temperatures will be hottest in the usual spots, far inland as you go further east and the coolest locations right along the coast, not much changed there. staying right around 60 degrees until a little more sunshine pushes temperatures up into the low 60s. i'll have another update on that weekend forecast coming up at 11:00. still to come, six-figure payouts smashing records. how far one bay area landlord was willing to go to get his tenants to leave. >> it is unquestionably the largest buyout in history. we might have a million-dollar buyout in a couple years. think bay area real estate is out of control? this dallas mega home is getting a lot of attention. not for the number of bedrooms, but because there aren't any.
