at a live camera shot, you can see that's the oakland estuary. kind of out by their, um, where the container ships come in as you look out towards san francisco. there is a little bit of patchy fog out in san francisco and out in the avenues. there's a little bit of potential for some valley fog tonight. just patchy stuff. and then tomorrow it's business as usual, which means jetstream going right over the top of us. and missing us and sending all the rain way away from here. we do have showers coming up from this system that is really produced a few light showers down around san luis obispo. but we've had some light showers here to some sprinkles. some showers. real light stuff. nothing measurable. so you may have got some of that today. you might see a little bit tonight, but for the most part, it should be kind of just hanging off shore. the live camera shot just shows plenty of clear. mild temperatures like i said 47 in nevada, 52 in san francisco. it's pretty warm, so it's about where temperatures are about where they were last night. at this time. these are the forecast overnight lows and you
can see you've got well above freezing and most of those inland spots so san francisco a few clouds in the morning, and then you end up partly sunny, mostly sunny in the afternoon. and then as you get into the later part of the day around three or four years, 60 degrees for daytime high. other places will be warmer down by the ramp and mission rocky could easily be into the mid sixties. 60 64 63. so these are the forecast types for tomorrow to me. nice day. we are looking forward to some rain. it does not happen for us. until late in the month . so the last two days of january. there's a potential for some rain, so that means pretty much we're going through the rest of this month like this, which is, i guess it's okay considering we would be nice to get some range snow. but we did so well early. we're just fortunate we will break this pattern. hopefully at the end of the month and into february. that's what the model suggests. so let's hope for that. in the meantime, just enjoy it. um can't think of anything to be worried about. i mean, there's no fog to worry about the surface. dropped temperatures
are on the mild side. yeah just enjoy it. when i come back tomorrow night, we'll go looking for rain again. i'll see you back here. okay sounds good. thanks, bill. well let's give resort in the sierra wants to thank local firefighters. homewood is offering free skiing or riding for firefighters and other first responders on january 30th. reservations will open at 10 a.m. on wednesday and will be available for the 1st 200 people who sign up homewood says they can never repay firefighters, especially for all of their hard work during the fire season in the tahoe area. a french bulldog is back home tonight after being taken at gunpoint in oakland's adam's point neighborhood last week, police say seven year old daisy was found after someone spotted the dog roaming around in the neighborhood. the dog's owner tells ktvu. she is overjoyed to be reunited with her pet. well new center is set to open in san francisco's u. n plaza as part of the mayor's tenderloin emergency initiative. starting tomorrow, the new tenderloin linkage center will be offering services and resources for people battling drug addiction. and struggling with mental
