6:47 pm

6:48 pm
inland when this thing starts to track across and then head up to george j and the carolinas before finally heading out to see a little bit, so we'll keep an eye on it for you different kind of a day in the bay guess well, it's back the marine layer everybody is you take a live look at sfo. you can see you know, the coast again was kind of socked in with a lot of clouds. today. these were the high so out of pacifica just 59 degrees 60 in san francisco. but if you went inland to concord, 86 degrees up in santa rosa 80 down in san jose about 74, so what's happening here is low pressure has been in control, and that's going to be the case over the next 24 hours, and then that high pressure sure that you see kind of the desert southwest. get a nudge over and really warm things up for us. so tomorrow another day like today kind of a rinse, repeat. and then, as we get into thursday, we're going to see those temperatures inland start to get higher and that england heat returns and that is why we do now have an excessive heat watch that is up for parts of solano and yellow counties in our viewing area and a good portion of interior california because we are expecting temperatures above 100 degrees in some spots close to
6:49 pm
sacramento. even you know, above 110 degrees. it looks like we won't see anything quite that high in the bay, but we'll see as we get closer. we could see if you were those watches or warnings. go up. here's a live look at storm tracker to or you see that marine layer again rolling in tonight. current temperatures now 57 in san francisco, where some nice sixties around the bay and some seventies as we head inland, but notice you go to bread would 89 degrees so that heat is going to start kind of rolling in slowly but surely pushing its way in further inland, but tonight, low clouds and fog a little coastal drizzle out there. temperatures similar to last night between about 50 and six 31 degrees tomorrow, another nice day on top, if you like. today you're going to like tomorrow could take a little wire for those clouds to clear. certainly, if you are san francisco out of the coast, but inland we're going to see some next seventies and eighties yet again and then everything changes when that high pressure really becomes robust. you can see inland going into the mid nineties on thursday. and even higher than that on friday, saturday and sunday. there are a few spots like antioch likely to see triple digit heat, but
6:50 pm
most like concord, probably going to hover right around that 98 99 degree marks not quite as bad as the last heat snap that we had, but again, you know it's going to be three or four days we'll start to pull off on monday. let's get more significant cooling as we get into tuesday of next week, so just be prepared julie back to you. alright kyla. thank you. the vatican says pope francis was up and eating this morning as he recovers from intestinal surgery. pope francis had surgery sunday for a fairly common issue narrowing of the colon. he is expected to be in the hospital in rome for the rest of the week. pope francis is 84 years old. the vatican says his recovery is going as expected. he read newspapers this morning and took a walk. coming up. giants pitcher kevin gausman talks about making the all star team in his hometown plus in oakland, a's slugger will compete in the home run derby. mark is next with the rest of sports, and here's a look at the primetime lineup tonight. right here on channel two at eight. it's lego masters,
