6:16 pm
beautiful day in the low 80s in your 2 degrees above average and that is a lot more than can be said for many of us on the far side of the east bay and i will show you the numbers in the second and look with the bay bridge looks like and what a beautiful day. you think we have it made and then you go to the other bridge and that is what it looks like right now. totally different story. a strong onshore flow coming through the gate in a very low marine later, layer. it will be a trickier drive getting over the bridge than it typically is in the fog is elevated about the towers. this plays into the way the temperatures ended up today. it was not a level playing field. if we look at the numbers for the inland locations today and i show you above average how we were. livermore was 8 degrees warmer than average and if i fill in this column you can see what the actual daytime highs were, 93 for santa rosa and 83 would've been the average for today. we see a bigger spread here for the inland spots then we do when we go into the bay. let's switch the numbers.
6:17 pm
those of the daytime highs for areas today over the coast and always noticeably cooler. but also, not nearly as far above average.'s it was really kind of an uneven warm-up today and we felt it for the inland locations. no doubt this pled a role in the complex of fires today where the humidity gets low and the temperature drops off. let's play it forward. concorde will be 98 today and 94 tomorrow. look. you will be there and by the time you get to wednesday let's continue the trend. san jose the numbers look better and we will be back down into the upper 70s by the middle of this week. for oakland, we will get you down to 70 and it won't happen until wednesday but you are not far above it now anyway. as we check out seven cisco, we don't see a lot of change here, the numbers will range right around that 73 market no big deal. so in the seven-day forecast, we have cover the fact we have a cool down that stays through the middle of next week. and we pretty much hold it there through friday and just in time for next weekend the

6:19 pm
folks who don't know they need help or will not take it, even though they are continually cycling through psychiatric emergency services and emergency rooms in jail. those folks need things like conservatorships. >> reporter: generally that is for people who are gravely disabled by serious mental illness. it is a legal order that allows somebody else, usually a public conservator to make decisions for that person. decisions like whether to be in an institution. since 2012, the number of homeless people in san francisco who report suffering from mental illness or addiction has been going up, but conservatorship numbers have been going down. >> over the last five or six years, the number of referrals for conservatorship went down by 50%. >> reporter: the supervisor commissioned a study in the subject, and it shows that san francisco's permanent conservatorship rate is below the state average. one reason is the lack of mental health resources. you can't force someone into a facility if there is no facility. and from 2012 the 2018, the
