approaching and the weather is looking pretty good. let's check in with kyle and get your forecast. yeah hi, guys. it is one of those beautiful days. today we had the marine layer. give us a little bit of a break a little bit earlier today, and that's going to be kind of the trend as we go across the next few days with some warming temperatures. the boy, it's just been beautiful. today so far, so take a look outside and you can see the golden gate basking in. some of that sun shines of those clouds were hanging on at the coast, but even the coast now starting to get a little bit better, santa rosa 59 degrees already with lots of sunshine in the north bay 53 in san francisco 57 right now in oakland about 61 livermore, so they're warming up in san jose about 60 degrees so you could see as we take a look at strong cracker to those clouds just kind of pulled away this morning, and that has to do with the setup that's happening here, which is that we've been under the influence. of the low pressure that's really far offshore. but high pressure that is to our south is ultimately going to start nudging to the north, and that's what's gonna help us to warm up now we do still have that onshore flow. it is slight.
12:17 pm
it does a little bit reduced today you could see the wind is relatively calm. unless maybe you're out of the coast through your feeling that a little bit more sfo reporting about 16 mph right now, but today we will see those temperatures take up a couple of degrees. we are seeing the clouds already starting to clear out and we're looking out for mostly sunny skies and we'll call the temperature. mild toe warm. we should be a couple degrees above average if you're inland, so upper fifties at the coast and then we'll see those low seventies inland. but here's the difference between yesterday and today, about six degrees, right so santa rosa yesterday in mid sixties will be low seventies. today. san francisco will get into the sixties today, upper sixties for livermore and san jose about 68 degrees, so pretty nice day on tap. ondas you get into tonight mostly clear skies way we got a little chilly last night in some of our inland spots, napa airport and sonoma county of work got down to 34 degrees last night. we should be a little bit warmer than that. hope lay in our england spots overnight tonight pretty mild around the bay little bit breezy as that onshore flow continues. so let me show you
12:18 pm
how this works out and why we're going to see the warm up over the next few days. that high pressures i mentioned is going to migrate a little bit to the north that pushes the little pressure out to see a little bit further. this high pressure isn't particularly strong, so it's not gonna heat us up entirely, but it is going to bump those temperatures up just a little bit. so would you go through the rest of the week and even into the weekend? we are going to see the temperatures trend a little bit warmer now. is it extreme heat? no we're talking temperatures going into the seventies. inland likely not above 75 degrees, so it won't be like we saw, i guess was about a week ago. now where we got really, really warm and saw some of those eighties. now what? you don't see is rain in the forecast. we are going to be dry over the next five days and talk a little bit more about our chances for i mean, when i come back a little later in the show, but you can see here temperatures, sunshine. that's what we got for the next five days, guys back to you, all right, thanks. tyler will fill the time at noon and alarming trend in the san francisco bay. what we're learning about the deaths of three gray whales lie.e
