5:16 pm
digit numbers in the forecast, upper 90s like today but the theme is for the next seven days and even looking past seven days , getting into the first few days of september the deeper the shades of red the higher the degree of confidence temperatures are above average. so you will see that in a second on the seven-day forecast and beyond. we should get used to things getting warmer even if there is no sign of intensity. a live look from treasure island to the bay bridge, 95 in concord, 87 would be the average daytime high in concord so we are above average. not 100 but it is warm. san francisco 66, san jose 82, oakland 75. here is where we are going tomorrow, 97 concord, 90 in san jose, 81 oakland and 94 in santa rosa. fremont 87, mountain view 85. i showed you the comparisons for humidity in his san jose
5:17 pm
now for concord even though we are warm to start the week when we get to wednesday or thursday when we likely have the increasing humidity, the daytime highs are coming down but this will be different from the last time we went through this on wednesday and thursday because on those days the humidity levels were a little bit higher and the daytime highs were also higher. so it's going to be noticeable, you will have the increase in humidity but it should not be as bad as last wednesday and thursday but we will track this. the direction of the moisture plume could shift either way so stay on top of the forecast but for now noticeable increase in humidity into the middle part of the week. even though it's not going to be stifling, santa rosa 88 degrees on thursday with relative humidity at 54, that is similar to where we were wednesday and thursday of last week for the humidity but not the temperatures. it was noticeably warmer into
5:18 pm
the 90s for that last stretch last week. on the seven-day forecast, temperatures do not necessarily tell the whole story particularly for wednesday and thursday. we have to factor in the humidity but when we get past next weekend we are drying out and temperatures come to the lower 90s which is just a little above average. i will see you with more on this coming up later. i can deal with those temperatures. sports settling in at 5:00. what do we have today? the raiders with an antonio brown update. a pronunciation lesson from a big wiener and the oakland a's great, the bay bridge series boss getting put to rest.
