5:49 am
perspective in the atmosphere. maybe unstable enough to squeeze out a renegade shower. perhaps sonoma county, the santa cruz mountains. otherwise we'll be partly cloudy and temperatures will be coming up a few degrees today. petaluma at zero, and you can see the breeze outside from our roof camera. partly cloudy. cool today. looking at warmer days tomorrow. tuesday not bad but showers will arrive late in the day. we're at about 53% of normal in san francisco and just about the same everywhere from san jose, mountview to santa rosa. surely yesterday's rain helped us but it didn't make a dent in the water year. it looks like we would have to really do some outstanding rain to make up for time. it doesn't look likely but we still have showers in the forecast for the week ahead. but for tomorrow, we'll see temperatures near average on monday with low 60s around the
5:50 am
bay, so should be a nice afternoon. a few high clouds, and once again on tuesday, high clouds but even milder. upper 60s to perhaps near 70 in some spots. so feeling like spring on tuesday, and then by wednesday, we get a bit of a sea breeze. the numbers come down, the clouds increase and this is also wednesday by about 3:00 in the afternoon where rain wants to push in to sonoma county. then by the evening commute, we could see a few showers. it looks like they will linger perhaps into thursday. highs today under partly cloudy skies. a slight bit warmer. 54 in san mateo, 53 in san rafael. it looks like a nice afternoon in livermore for you, 53. then tonight another cold night. 30s for most, maybe 40 right near san francisco, and the accuweather 7-day forecast looking at sunny skies. maybe a sprinkle in the higher elevations today. otherwise it will get progressively warmer tomorrow. tuesday on the mild side. rain late in the day on thursday
