5:20 pm
the day you go. wow it's hot. and if you're in specific up, you're going to say it's not that hot at all right? terrific. i think there'll be some fog at the coast specifically to stay in the low sixties temperatures today running a little cooler. tomorrow is very similar to today. see that sea breeze and the sea breeze is going to stay. it's not going to go away. it's just going to get it's gonna just be able to impact the coast because it's going to be fighting the heat coming out of the valleys and so these these areas in here, kind of no man's land around the bay. we're going to see eighties maybe low nineties, but the big heat is going to be east of the east bay hills as you know, and that starts on thursday. big time on thursday starts on wednesday, but big time on thursday. i'll see you back here with the full forecast. a lawsuit over an employer requiring staff to receive covid vaccines has been thrown out by a federal judge. i'm ca
