6:16 pm
the mid 80s in the tri-valley and if we look at the current numbers now it is only 76 in livermore and san jose at 74 and that is the view behind me right now with concord at 78. this was the coolest day for those inland valleys and you will have to warm back up again tomorrow but only into the low 90s that is basically what you have been doing and today is the day that stands out and tomorrow you will get back to what you have been used to for much of the last few days. tonight the marine layer will come back, and we will wake up tomorrow and will be great for the early morning on monday for pretty much the entire bay area and that is a good surge and we are just not going to get as much of a benefit of that throughout the day. because the temperatures will jump a little more. we do start out in the morning and we go back into the mid-to upper 50s which is typical here as we look at morning lows everywhere and for daytime highs, everybody will do like you did today except for those inland valleys so south bay,
6:17 pm
this is where you were at 81 and tomorrow for san jose we got to 80 and the city and mid- 70s on the peninsula and the san mateo. and now back into the low 90s over here today. so about a 7b0 bump for many of these locations. pleasant h92 and in waut creek to 91. it is still the low 70s. 71 for oakland and 68 with berkeley and the valley up into sonoma will be in the mid 80s although santa rosa we may be able to get 78 tomorrow and you are also getting the benefit in the same clouds and cool air that surged into the tri- valley's today do the same thing through the petaluma gap, and it has cooled down santa rosa and petaluma as well and you will get gray skies for the morning in the north bay tomorrow as well. daytime highs in mendocino and lake county not bad with the mid-90s. in terms of what happens next, if we look at san francisco and oakland and san jose first which is what we do when we
6:18 pm
look at the seven-day, there is no difference and you don't really see much that stands out and we pretty much see the same thing here so we will switch it up and bring in this inland east bay that is the top line, yes we do have a warm-up into the low 90s the next few days and then you will get a little bit of a dip here on wednesday back down to what today felt like and then you warm back up going into the end of the week in the mid-90s and the take away is there is no major swings and we don't have any significant spikes in heat for the next seven days and maybe not even the next 10 days and if you look at the long rage -- range forecast model it looks like there could be some heat once we get past that but a week and a half away that is and more on that as we get closer to it but right now we have a great looking seven-day forecast. the giants got a new guy and put this longtime chicago cub on display and the star player kris bryant at long last is a giant and it created quite

6:49 pm
which is where we would be more susceptible to notice big swings and temperatures for the inland valleys of the east bay's it couldn't happen there and we will go back to the low 90s tomorrow but i doubt you will notice and the north bay valleys will stay right around that 80 degrees mark for the next seven days. back over to you. coming up, frcisco faces and
