5:50 pm
weekend. and that's really going to become the headline as we get into the 7-day forecast. there is the forecast for tomorrow, temperatures that come down into the low to mid 70s and as we get into the forecast, you'll see what happens over the next few days, with a warmup really noticeable by next week. i'm sure those low and mid 90s caught your attention there. by the time we got into tuesday and wednesday next week for inland locations. we won't notice as much for the bay, but it will still be a little bit warmer for everybody. back to you. coming up, she has worked for eight decades and saved california millions of dollars. meet the 98-year-old woman the governor is calling a state treasure. a little bird told me that you
