that will bring you some sunshine but because it's a weak ridge, a few high clouds will dump over the top of that from time to time over the next few days. 70s in the central valley hazy sunshine. 67 degrees into monterey bay and 60 in lake tahoe. if you head to the coastline, watch out, there's still some big swells there about 9 to 11 feet out of the west and big- time breakers along the coastline and some strong rip currents, too. temperatures expected to be in the 60s and the 70s this afternoon. maybe some mid-60s in the warmest spots. next couple of days should be very nice. on thursday clouds start to move back in and boy, here we go on friday. storm clouds rolling back into the bay area. the timing on the storm system not looking good. that system coming in, in the afternoon with some gusty winds and some rain on friday. of course game time i believe on friday is 5:07. and that could very well affect the game on friday. timing could change -- saturday rain also. >> fingers crossed for change. >> that's right. >> thank you.
