7:17 pm
where it is thickest. you need certain conditions for this. clear skies over head, calm winds at ground level, but also ground level moisture. we've been lacking that ground level moisture the last couple of years, but recent rains have added to that ground level moisture, have we've seen that thick fog developing. and the high pressure over head acts like a lid, making the fog more stubborn, and also anything else gets trapped in place, specifically referring to ground level pollutants. that's why the ground quality has been an issue for the past few days. moderate to even unhealthy for sensitive groups. the air quality should gradually improve. i don't think the fog will be as stubborn tomorrow, but there will be some of it out there. we see those winds picking up helping to improve the air quality, and with cloud overhead tonight, we're not going to see as much of that fog developing. there is the haze.
7:18 pm
again, just the lid on the atmosphere keeping that trapped in place. we're in the mid-to-upper 50s right now. there is going to somebody fog out there tomorrow morning, but really it's the cloud cover further up in the atmosphere. one of the ingredients for that fog to become dense is clear skies. we don't have that out there. some fog will develop. it will be more sparse and won't last quite as long. temperatures will warm back up to more normal for this time of year. any fog will be long gone by noon tomorrow. temperatures only dropping a few degrees because of that blanket of clouds overhead. most will be in the low-to-mid 50s by tomorrow morning. temperatures will be back up to about normal for this time of year. into the mid-60s in san francisco. some early morning fog and low cloud cover, but dissipates pretty quickly. more of a typical pattern for this time of year. santa rosa reaches close to 70 degrees. should hit 70 in concord around 3:00 in the afternoon, and then
7:19 pm
temperatures drop off quickly once the sun goes down tomorrow, just before 5:00 in the afternoon. early, early sunset times. san jose reaches up to the upper 60s, close to 70 degrees as well. generally running two to four degrees above normal, mid-to- upper 60s with the warmest spots touching or even exceeding 70 degrees. the cool spots along the coast, only in the low 60s. temperatures similar across the board ons we, and then we cool off thursday and friday, nease system brings more cloud cover in and the chance for some showers. after the sun goes down thursday evening, probably going to be after midnight, and then lingering into the first half of the day on friday. that system will be out of here as we head into the weekend. so saturday and sunday are both looking very nice. this next system thursday night and friday is going to bring us more needed rainfall, but won't be a huge rainmaker. a few hundredths of an inch of rain, maybe a few favorite spots ticking up a tenth of an
7:20 pm
inch. but i've said it every time its rained so far this season, i'll say it gain, we'll take whatever we can get. and then the weekend is look nice. >> beggars can't be choosers. >> nope. >> thanks, paul. the critical vote on whether to keep an open space that way in san jose. and wondering whether you can or should get a covid booster? hear from one local doctor at 8:10. you can eveveryone neeeeds healalth insuranance. coverered california is making sure m more peoplele can get . new federaral fundingg of $3 3 billion is availilable to hehelp more californrnians get c covered. jujulie and bob are payiying $70000 less everery month. dee now gegets compmprehensive e coverage wiwith no montnthly premiuim anand the navavarros are p pag under $10000 per monthth. check cocoveredca.cocom to s see your nenew lower prp. covered d californiaia, thisis way to hehealth insurur. enroll b by decemberer 31st. ememergency plplanning foror .
