counties, bringing some very welcome rain in the pacific northwest. we will see more clouds and cooler temperatures on thursday. tomorrow morning we will start out without much widespread fog. the fog will be coming over tomorrow afternoon. and we will start thursday morning with a lot of fog and cloud cover. there's the rain maybe skirting mendocino and lake counties, but it will just be a few sprinkles. we will see a mix of clouds and sunshine throughout the day on thursday and then the weather takes a big turn as we head into the weekend. for right now, without that fog we get a nice view of downtown. 59 downtown and in santa rosa, otherwise temperatures still running in the low to mid 60s. we will be in the 50s for tomorrow morning which is pretty normal for this time of the year are the coolest spots will be the valleys of the
north bay. temperatures will warm up but it will not be an overly hot day. temperatures into the 80s in the afternoon, toasty, so a bit of exercise caution as you head out for a walk. but these temperatures are very close to normal for this time of the year. many of sunshine and looking like a very nice day overall. close to 90 degrees by the diablo range, otherwise mostly 80s for inland portions of the bay area. the heat arrives as we head into the weekend. we take a big jump in temperatures on saturday but sunday is the first day of record high temperatures, close to 100 for livermore and i think concord will crack 100 degrees, and that will set a new record high temperature. beginning on saturday, not only are we going to be hot, but there will also be an offshore wind, and it will be gusty. so we have a fire whether watch
already in effect from saturday through monday morning and it may have to be extended even beyond that depending on how the wind behaves. the near record high temperatures will be with us sunday, monday and tuesday with triple digit heat inland and well into the 80s around the bay. maybe by then we will be talking about some playoff baseball.>> hopefully paul. how will the nuggets respond after the crushing loss on sunday against the lakers in the western conference finals? and ms. williams: we've been working hard... ms. robinson: ...to make learning fun again. ms. duncan: and making sure our students can succeed. ms. zamora: we're with you every step of the way. ms. robinson: i know it's a challenging time. ms. zamora: no one wants to be back in the classroom more than teachers. ms. williams: we have missed you so much.
