bay hills, and it was foggy in the tri-valley through concord in the north bay valleys again this morning and we had a dense fog advisory for a good part of the morning and will probably do that again tomorrow and i will show you why. if you switch to the high resolution satellite this is just before sunset today so we did have the daylight to be able to see where the fog was and that is the fog that fills in the entire central valley in the winter and you can see some of the high serous clouds obscuring the view as they passed by quickly but that doesn't move and it is supposed to melt away and evaporate and disappear in the warmth of the sun but it did not today. this means as the sun went down it was still there. that means it has a big head start on tomorrow. so it will start creeping back over toward the east bay valleys and certainly into the delta and up into the north bay valleys once again tomorrow and if we look at the right now readings and visibility, they are already starting to go down and right now the visibility
6:48 pm
reading for concord is 5.0 and travis is at 3.0 and they are telling you how far down the road you can see in miles and right now those numbers are high and this morning they were down to 0.3 and they probably will go back there again tomorrow and this is just the start. a little extra time in the road tomorrow will be good and it is a find right now -- fine right now and there will be no issues right now unless you're in the central valley and temperatures are in the low 50s in the cooler spot for tomorrow morning will go down to the upper 40s for some of the cooler locations in the valley and we can't rule this out for the peninsula or the east bay shoreline either. you were included in this dense fog advisory today and we keep a close eye on the sand manteo bridge it is there tomorrow so little extra time. the highs go back and low 70s around the fog is gone by noon and just a few high clouds tomorrow again and it will be pretty and you can see the high clouds coming our way and part of the storm track which right now wants nothing to do with us and it is really hammering north of seattle and that is a
6:49 pm
significant atmospheric river and it has been really developing in the pacific and we have had some but not them all thankfully because that one is really nasty and we don't notice anything from those and the next storm is developed out here and doesn't look like a major deal but first of all most of it goes back up to seattle and that it is where it will be on friday but watch the southern trailing edge trying to bring us some rain. if we look at this and the accumulated rainfall map it keeps raining north of seattle for the next few days and there is a big red bull's-eye there but if we take it all the way to thursday and now play it forward from thursday through friday, watch the numbers go up here at home. so we won't get to tied into a number yet or a specific time other than to come away with the general idea but thursday and friday there is chance for light rain and you will see that spreading across the seven- day with a little bit cooler and yesterday and today and tomorrow are pretty much the warm days and i know it has been feeling like summer in some parts of the bay area but
6:50 pm
that comes to an end this week and we get back into follis weather and thankfully we have some more light and manageable moderate rain and back to you. still ahead, a home update tonight.
