- Get to Jordan now with a look at the forecast. And boy, some glorious days ahead.

- Yes indeed John. We're going to be seeing a warmer weekend. Plenty of sunshine. And light winds throughout the daytime. But a nice Delta breeze expected to kick in.

Look at that a live look outside through scousers camera. A beautiful Thursday afternoon. Showing you some of the current temperatures on the board.

Or in the low 60s from Sacramento Stockton into Modesto. And 65 right now up in Marysville as far as our Dew point. Our Dew points at 42, humidity at 46. In our winds they're fairly calm right now and our pressure 30.14.

Checking in with our seabridge 13 weather watchers. We got 64 out of Lake, and pines already at 70, and antelope. And then mid 60s. In Woodland Wilton's coming through at 61 degrees. That's Martha and Zach out in lothrop 67 degrees.

They show you our current satellite and radar. Not a whole lot happening. And that's going to be the case as we head into the evening tonight and through your Friday as well. Taking a look at our future cast though, we've got the high pressure system that's going to be strengthening and dominating the forecast over the next couple of days.

And this system right there up to the North, that's going to bring some activity up to the Pacific Northwest. Unfortunately, this high pressure right there will continue to block that. So we're going to remain high dry and warm into the weekend.

Breezy last night. But they've eased up a little bit. We'll continue to see the wind shift a little bit to the North here in the Valley throughout the day.

Tonight, a very light Delta breeze. So again, it's mainly going to be impacting the northern San Joaquin Valley. Maybe not maybe someone here in the Sacramento region. But not quite as strong as the winds we saw last night. And the winds are going to get tomorrow night.

So as we deal with some warmer temperatures in the day tomorrow. We're going to see that Delta breeze kicking up tomorrow night anywhere from about 15 to 20 miles per hour. So it's going to be a gorgeous Friday night as we start the weekend.

And it's going to be a great night tonight. We'll see temperatures this afternoon getting into the mid 50s. Tonight into the upper 40s. That went from the North again here in the Valley.

We'll see low 70s from above Jackson and Sinora. Then low 60s expected out towards Pollock pines today. Some nice and cool there. Then upper 60s for areas like Colfax and Grass Valley.

Up in the high Country, we'll see low to upper 60s for plumas county. And the greater Lake Tahoe area 57 this afternoon. With trucky clocking through at 58 degrees, with a lot of sunshine and the winds from the West Add 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Slightly cooler in San Francisco. They're looking at some winds to kick up continuing from the West. We could see gusts up to 25 miles per hour. Low 60s for today. Mid 70s out in Fairfield.

And here's that seven day forecast. Winds will still be a bit breezy in the Bay Area tomorrow. But we'll be dealing with temperatures in the mid to low 60s, as we head towards the weekend.

And look at that the foothills, low to upper 60s or 70s excuse me. And that's going to be a lot warmer than where we should be this time of year. And low 60s expected in the Sierra.

So here we go. 75 today, 76 tomorrow. Our overnight temperatures still in the mid 40s. And then once we hit the weekend get ready to see 80s all across the board. At least we hold on to the low 80s all the way through next week.

Tuesday is going to be the warm day at 82 degrees. And we'll see our overnight temperatures slowly warming up as well will be in the upper 40s by Friday. But look at Monday excuse me. And then low 50s by Tuesday into Wednesday.

So get ready for a beautiful weekend ahead. John.
