not tomorrow, but the cooler weather pattern which shows up towards the weekend with this guy right here. and the cooling trend will begin on thursday. and you'll notice it. not tomorrow, right? you'll be back where we were today. but on thursday you get this kind of a deal which makes sense when that low gets close it drops the temperatures through saturday. even sunday a little bit. so in terms of fire danger, we're feeling good about it. this pattern, we've had a few patterns these past couple days, this heat and the wind conditions are not horrible, horrible. we can see that this time of year and we are not. 92 in st. helena. 90 in pittsburg, antioch. santa clara valley lots of 80s. foggy at the coast. i don't think we'll see as much clearing tomorrow. some clearing pacifica and stinson beach, but not as much as today. i think the fog is going to hang if thor. and in the five-day forecast when you get to look at here,
10:50 pm
the big drop off, right? these upper tier numbers drop off, clouds come in, the fire danger goes down, air quality gets wetter, but your barbecue in say oakland or berkeley is going to need a jacket. that's on the weekend. there's your five-day forecast. i'll see you back here at 11:00. skiers and snowboarders are going to have to put away their gear. mammoth mountain said after an epic winter snowfall they are going to close for the season on july 28th. mammoth had more than 700 inches of snow at their summit. that's more than 58 feet of snow. and they had nearly 500 inches at the main lodge. mammoth initially hoped to stay open through the fourth of july but said they would continue until august. however, a recent warm-up has started melting the remaining snow fast to make it until august. coming up the sports, after blowing a lead in the bottom of the ninth, giants extend their winning streak. then on the 11:00 news,
