it was a hot one out there today but temperatures are going to start to cool down into tomorrow and for the rest of the week. tomorrow at a glance starting the day with mainly coastal fog but it will spill very briefly into our bay shores, temperatures pretty mild in the 50s and low 60s into the afternoon, the fog pushes back to the coastline. it will hug the coast into the afternoon and into the 4:00 hour, a slight chance of thunderstorms in the south bay but otherwise sunny skies and still pretty warm temperatures in some spots bike san jose. let's look at fog tracker for tomorrow morning. the fog spilling into the bay shores very, very briefly into oakland also through parts of the north bay right over the 101 in the 6:00 hour. later on in the morning the 8:00 hour, fog starts to push back a little bit but still
clinging to san francisco and parts of the north bay. back to the coastline by the 11:00 hour and again, it will stay there through the afternoon. some look at temperatures tomorrow, much cooler in the north bay. we're going to have that marine influence with the fog so temperatures cooling several degrees over today. 84 in napa, 70 in san francisco. a lot cooler for places like concord and livermore but still in the low 90s, 98 in antioch, 70s and 80s for the bay shores and 90s in the south bay. now, we saw some pretty wicked weather down in arizona today as a result of this subtropical moisture. you can see they're still seeing severe thunderstorms at this hour. the moisture's wrapping around an area of high pressure in the four corners but it looks like it's going to move a little bit to the north out there so the chance is the south bay could get clipped with an isolated thunderstorm. temperatures cool tomorrow but we'll really begin that cooling trend into thursday and friday and especially the weekend with fog becoming more dense, temperatures will be much more comfortable in the low 80s.
time for tech talk with gabe slate. >> if you or someone you know are about to get an iphone our smart phone through verizon, you might want to do it before thursday. >> reporter: because verizon is following at&t and t-mobile's move of killing their unlimited data plan. verizon will no longer offer an unlimited plan. they will offer tiered plans which they are calling usage- based billing. here's the breakdown. $30 for two gigs her month, $50 for five gigs per month and $80 for 10 gigs. this is comparable to other carriers and most smart phone users will be okay. two gigs should cover most people. that is hard to go over in one month. who this affects are big data users. if a person does a lot of video chatting, audio and video streaming, listening to pandora radio, they may need to stand up for the $50.05 gig per month plan. i know that's expensive. no one wants to pay that much,
but to be safe, it would be a good idea for big data users. they should go with the plan so they don't go over their allowed limit. verizon will charge customers who go over their tiered plan. $10 per gig will be the equation used to tack on the going overfees. a really important point here and something good that verizon is doing, existing verizon iphone and smart phone users who have the $30 a month for unlimited data, they will be able to keep that. they are grandfathered in. so current unlimited data verizon customers can continue their unlimited plan and even upgrade to new phones and keep that unlimited plan intact. this new tiered system is for new customers only. >> that's why i said if you are about to get an iphone or smart phone, pull the trigger now, do it before thursday and you can get grandfathered in to a better deal with the existing data plan. gabe slate, kron4 news. the as go extra innings with the mariners at the coliseum and matt cain and the
