yeah, you don't do that. thank you very much of yet. rarely rarely does that ever happen? a guys. we are. we are tracking some of though, that you have really keep a close eye on. we've been talking about all the drought conditions, the fire danger. well, now we've got the monsoon to worry about. and that's pretty typical of the bay area this time of year as high pressure builds in back out of the 4 corners office and you get some moisture wrapped around that and it can actually bring some rain, some thunderstorms to the states. really watch out for that the next couple of days so far looks like we're just dealing with some fog through saturday. now things begin to change that by sunday afternoon. you see this in pools of the clouds begin to roll back up into the bay area, even picking up on some moisture over the sierra nevada. now, sometimes you can get what's called dry lightning basically you get some thunderstorms that develop. but the air beneath those thunderstorms are so dry. any rain that falls evaporate before it can hit the ground. that makes it very dangerous because the ground doesn't get wet. if you get a lightning strike and so that
fire can start very, very easily. now we're going to see that monsoon continue as we head into monday with some muggy conditions as well. after that things begin to settle down that ridge moves further the east again. but by the latter part of the week. it begins to roll back in. i think maybe the more substantial subtropical moisture making its way back into the bay area and across california. you have to be watching out for the fire situation because of those storms. all right. outside right now. we've got that nice fog. that is helping to suppress any fire conditions around the bay area. air quality is looking fantastic to you get that. nice see breeze and that clears out all the air from the north bay. the coast, the east bay, the south bay, you name it. we're looking good. now. the clouds are gathering again, but it doesn't look like it's going to be as thick overnight tonight temperatures all over the board right now. you've got 57 degrees and cool with the fog in san francisco and your sunny and 80 in concord. 76 in livermore, 70 in san jose and 63 degrees in oakland tomorrow. temperatures in the 60's into san francisco. you're still talking. maybe some 70's into oakland 76
degrees in san jose. some pleasant weather there. still hot in parts of the state, though, may be as high as a 100 degrees in bakersfield tomorrow afternoon. 81 degrees, los angeles about 90 in sacramento, 98 in reading much cooler weather as you approach the coastline. so overnight tonight, low clouds going to surge on shore again. maybe not as thick as it's been, but we're still going to see some of that drizzle out for the beaches. we've been seeing a whole lot of that over the almost the entire month of july actually. but by the afternoon tomorrow, little bit of a northerly component. the winds that should be just enough to clear out your skies a bit and that's going help warm the temperatures up starting tomorrow more so on saturday and sunday. and then the muggy conditions, some of that monsoonal moisture rolls in late sunday and into monday, guys. thanks alerts. coming up, we continue our destination, california series with the trip to a small southern california town that has a little bit of something for the whole family.
