closest i could find but we will be hungy to be in the mid-to-upper 60. the thing i have noticed, this month, look at the temperatures we should be in the 30's and 40's but we are in the 40's and 50's in many areas especially inland where we should be in the upper 30's for ranch highs -- average highs we have been running in the 50's from seven degrees warmer in average in oakland to 11 or 12 warmer in livermore. when you get the gas bill be thankful. >> now, fast forward to wednesday, at 7:00, clear other than the fog and increasing high clouds and dry during the day late. by 8:00, the light rain is in the north bay and you can see it falling apart as it moves through the heart of the bay from 8:00 to 10:00 and 10:00 to midnight we will make up to clear conditions as we head through thursday morning. lake tahoe will probably get the brunt of that storm and that is what i am thinking and a couple of ins up there and they could use more right now. what i am seeing they are only
52 percent of where we should be. here is seven-day outlook, a we are dealing with tomorrow is temperatures almost the same as today and we will repeat this pat were because of the high pressure and the chance of light rain is cooler on wednesday and when we cool and the air is really dry like it is supposed to and we are rid of the fog, we will sometime warm into the upper 50's and low 60's which is warmer-than-average for friday, saturday and sunday. >> hope you have a good one. back to you. >> we have breaking news now from the world of music, british foreign singer joe cocker has died in colorado after losing a battle with lung cancer. he rose to fame in the 1960's with what was best known for the cover of the beatles hit "a little help with my friends," and "up where we belong," with jennifer warren from "an officer and a gentleman," and won a gram
