5:19 pm
and it was a cool one. fogs can be back again tonight. not as much cloud cover tomorrow. so it's slightly warmer day highs tomorrow. i mean today most of us were just in the fifties. if you're away from the bay warmer spots from the sixties. but to inland is not been warm at all inland spots have been struggling to stay in the mid and upper fifties. i mean, it's just been cool from davis to winners all the way into fresno in those areas, so this is the time of year. valley fog is the thing right? and the current temperatures kind of play that out. you've got 55 fairfield 54 brown with these look more like overnight lows. um and you know few weeks ago or a month ago, this would have been overnight lows. um except sandals, a 62. so these temperatures are kind of running about where you'd expect them to be because of the cloud cover. now we're getting back into the higher dew point tonight. so when that temperature drops, that's that animations meant to show the temperature drops to that dew point. which is the dew point is a temperature is the temperature right? so when the dew point temperature. tonight i'll show you what it is in a couple of bay area sample cities and on the right side,
5:20 pm
you'll see the dew point temperature so dew point temperature in santa rosa's 54 right now that's on the right on the left is your actual ambient temperature, and that's 55 degrees, so you're 1 degrees away from the fog formation. same with the napa's three degrees away. you can see livermore's a little bit further away, but that high dew point of 53. will be achieved tonight so you can count on fog. even san jose should get down to its dew point. sfo has a shot as well. so when you see that happen, that's when the fog forms. okay, so that's what we're looking for again tonight. the weather story. first of all has been the pacific northwest, where they've been getting hammered. i mean, just the atmosphere river. that's what that line is right there. it's been just kind of going straight up the pipe up into the seattle area where they have had rain, rain rain and they're going to get more there's going to. they're going to definitely have flooding concerns over the next two or three days. the model. i want to show you in the back at all the way up here, and we're going to show you where we are. right now. there's our cloud cover weak system to the north of us more clearing tomorrow as that system slides through. and

plaza and statue on the field, where he once flew model airplanes as a boy. all right. i hope you had a nice day. today kind of chilly kind of start to feel like winter, isn't it? i mean, we're still in the fall here, but it does feel a lot like winter. the high temperatures today especially inland, just one of those reverse. summer things where it's 58 fairfield. it's a little warmer around the bay and a little little warmer, mild at the coast, so the temperatures inland colder than at the coast, which is right the opposite. in summer. it's colder at the coast and warmer inland. and that's what happens. that's classic bay area fall winter, and that's where the fog likes the forms that inland bay value. we got something tonight that's going to make the fog less abundant as a week kind of pressure system slides through and as it slides, sort of blows up the inversion. so an inversion is when you're pressing down on something you get right and that's how the fog forms. it likes that and like that have a shallow and version. but when this low is going to come in, if you can see my hands like this is the inversion, the top of it. in the low comes in. it just releases it and opens it
5:52 pm
up. and then the air mixes right. so in the fog goes away, so that's just probably going to happen. i look over my shoulder over here and you see that clear edge coming. that's the front. it's going to change things around for us, so i hope that makes sense and version sounds kind of scary, you know, like it's a very temperature inversion. you know, thermal inversion. it's just it's just a lid keeps things pretty tight. we're we've had, uh, an inversion. if you were a temperature inversion for the last. few days. certainly that's allowed the fog to form not so much at the coast, but in the inland valleys outside, we've got clouds. it's going to be a nice day tomorrow more sunshine tomorrow and here is why. as this system there it is right here, see it and even rain in northern california is that goes through. it's going to lift up the inversion. and then all the fog right mixes in the vertical and you don't have the ability for fog to form and with that, we'll see more clearing because the back edge of this front has a little bit of drier, more dry air a little cooler. and that will make it more difficult for clouds to form. that's the plan anyway. so tomorrow's gonna be
5:53 pm
okay day. i think there'll be some fog tonight and i think it'll be around patch in the morning, but it should not be a. dense fog advisory ish as it was this morning. i mean the central valley all the way up and all the way down. they had dense fog advisories tomorrow morning temperatures will be cool. dew point or high fog will form like i'm saying, but it won't should not have the ability. to be this widespread as we saw as we've seen the last few morning, so we'll see how that works out. here's the forecast for tomorrow and you see the clouds right? this is the forecast highs to lots of seventies yellows. in the more clouds, but obviously the seventies. those yellows representing where the fog because you're not gonna get yellows or seventies in the inland valleys with the with the inversion that we've been seeing, and right, we've been seeing temperatures up there in the mid fifties. so forecast highs tomorrow should be a bit warmer than they were today. maybe a little on the high end here, but it will be a bit warmer. and then the five day forecast, um, partly sunny. nice on tuesday and wednesday and then thursday, we got that shot.
