get out there and enjoy. it looks good. i bet it tastes good. weather-wise how should people prepare? >> definitely a jacket. we have fog everywhere. leg changes out there. tracking the low clouds and this afternoon we are going to see them just stuck to the coast. so this morning they are continuing to increase across the bay. it is foggy in concord this morning. from our roof camera, you can see this shot, but it is gray with cool temperatures. 50 downtown. 48 in san carlos, 49 in los gatos. a little bit warmer today. this morning, i should say, due to all the low clouds. but we will off set that by a very slow burn off. and not much of a warmup out there. emeryville right now, temperatures in the low 40s. and napa with visibility anywhere from a quarter to a half-mile from santa rosa, napa, novato. fairfield at 50 and 45 with the fog in concord. so here's a look at the visibility. it's worse in the north bay. you have it out over toward the
6:20 am
east bay and along the coast. so far the airport is doing fine, but another vantage point from our exploratorium camera. you notice it's certainly gray out there. foggy and cool to start. a cooler day today. the winds are going to kick up tonight. and the gusty winds will lead to a chance of showers through the overnight hours and also into tomorrow morning. mainly from san francisco along the coast, and down around the santa cruz mountains. but overall we are looking at a big pattern change as an area of low pressure, a cold area of low pressure drops down through the mountains today. so that's going to increase the pressure gradient with high pressure offshore, low pressure dropping to the east of us, and that brings the winds. but before all of this, we've got that stronger onshore push. it all spells out for a much cooler but seasonal week ahead. here we will time-out the clouds and the chance of precipitation. by tomorrow night you will -- or tonight, i should say, just a chance of showers along the
6:21 am
coast. more on the way of clouds. then we will go through the overnight hours and you will notice that a few areas of green pop up 2:00 a.m.. looking down around the south bay, some showers. and lou the morning hours you are cloudy and noontime we still have some showers offshore and perhaps along the coast. but by the late afternoon and the evening commute, the activity is into the central valley and we are looking at the possibility of snow in the sierra nevada. in fact, up to three to five inches above 5,000 feet and very gusty winds there. today we are looking at 68 in milpitas, 74 los gatos. worm warmer there. 67 menlo park. san francisco cooler, 63 today. cooler for you in the north bay. you will feel the breezy winds. 68 in petaluma. you will notice the partly cloudy sky. oakland 67. 69 out toward fremont and more seenal with 72 as you head out into the san ramon valley.
6:22 am
this afternoon at least sunny in livermore but cooler. here's the accuweather seven-day forecast. it will be mild today but relatively speaking much, much cooler than yesterday. a chance of showers overnight. breezy winds tonight. that will last through the day tomorrow. then cool and breezy. dry tuesday. slow warmup wednesday, thursday and friday and maybe another wet weather maker by next weekend. abc7 news has another weather resource for you to follow. that's on twitter. the latest weather conditions rain or shine, video forecasts, spare the air alerts, power outage info and information from your favorite weather team. >> thanks, lisa. speaking of fall, speaking of halloween, off to the races. find out why people in colorado were wearing costumes and racing
