>> breathtaking. >> just getting to the bridge, that was half the battle today. backups and busy parking lots. it's still busy now. it feels like it hasn't rained in quite a while and we're told that it's not unusual to see a mid winter dry spell even in an el nino year and the rain is returning later this week. reporting live at the golden gate bridge, christy smith, nbc bay area news. >> that's a gorgeous shot. the bridge behind her, it looks fantastic. >> we were saying last year valentine's day we were all together, you and rob were my dates. >> here we are. >> here we are again. >> still here. >> all wearing something in the red family. >> yes, we are. we do the valentine's day cards fashion here today. right now, a bit cool. the sea breeze is picking up at this hour in san francisco. look at the highs into the north
bay today, 78 in santa rosa, 77 degrees both tying records. you see concord up to 77 degrees and napa 75. that broke a record today. right now we're in the 50s and 60s. gorgeous sunset earlier with the high clouds. winds coming in off of the water. that's the reason it's cooling off. but notice the wind direction during the day tomorrow. winds now pointing offshore. we saw a sneak preview of that today in santa cruz. we saw temperatures warming up to 80 degrees once the winds started to drop down out of the north out of the santa cruz mountain. so more of the bay area will see a warmup during the day tomorrow with high clouds at times. but the storm track way up a to the north. this is the exact opposite pattern that we saw most of january where we had the jet stream in southern california. so as this high pressure system has been building over the last couple of weeks, this mid winter dry spell holding its ground. it's going to strengthen again heading into monday, the
offshore breezes bringing the temperatures up into the 70s and 80s. tomorrow, most likely spots to break records. oakland, pretty easy to break that one. we're expecting 78 degrees. santa cruz again could see highs into the 80s during the day tomorrow. so highs for san jose upper 70s, close to 80 in los gatos, san francisco there, should see less of the sea breeze influence, 70s around san francisco, north bay, mid to upper 70s there and tri-valley, mid 70s, maybe close to 80. so we'll see one more day of warm temperatures as the seven-day forecast shows at the bottom of the screen. tuesday, a big change, rain drops coming into into the picture. a one storm system week for the bay area. coming in late wednesday to thursday. three-quarters of an inch of rain. you can see areas north of san francisco, mainly late wednesday night into thursday.
so potentially the wednesday evening commute and the thursday morning commute will see the most out of this rain. and then high pressure once again. unfortunately we'll take our next chance of showers into the far north bay for friday morning and away from the bay area towards next weekend. a midweek system bringing us some rain, a couple of record breaking temperatures the b beginning of the week. saturday and sunday maybe not as warm as this weekend but still upper 60s to low 70s an an unusually dry pattern continues for february. and the long range forecast through the end of the month, the areas in yellow still below average rain chances expected. and then towards march we think the jet stream will turn stronger for california. we hope expectations hold out as we get the rain to make a bigger comeback as we move into march. coming up next, headed to
