WEATHER-WXWALL


FULL WX

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

After a warm and muggy start to the day with some pockets of fog, we'll gradually see increasing sunshine through the morning, but clouds stay quite plentiful through the day.

With a mix of clouds and sunshine, temperatures will have no trouble peaking in the 80s later in the day. Temperatures along the coast will be slightly cooler as the sea breeze sets up this afternoon, but away from the beaches, daytime highs will soar into the mid 80s.

A few showers will be possible by midday, but the favored spots for rain will be deep inland toward the interior part of the peninsula. Our rain chances today should only be around 30%.

We've got another muggy, warm evening ahead with temperatures only settling down to the upper 60s, and the necessary ingredients will be in place for more fog to develop early Sunday morning.

Sunday will be a warm, sunny, and partly cloudy day with highs back to the mid 80s; any rain chance will be well inland and far from our coast.

The warm weather rolls along into the first half of the week, but an approaching cool front should bring in more clouds and a few showers late Wednesday into Thursday.

Our temperatures should drop a little Thursday and Friday with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s, but our sky should stay fairly cloudy through the end of the week. Return to index of stories...

A DAY AFTER A ONE-GOAL LOSS TO CANADA, THE U-S MEN'S HOCKEY TEAM PLAYED TO

SALVAGE OLYMPIC BRONZE IN A GAME AGAINST FINLAND. BUT VISIONS OF A MEDAL

SOON MELTED AWAY.

IN THE SECOND PERIOD, TEEMU SELANE -- AT 43, A SIX-TIME OLYMPIAN -- SCORED

THE FIRST OF HIS TWO GOALS FOR FINLAND. THEN, JUST ELEVEN SECONDS LATER,

THE FINNS MADE IT TWO-NOTHING.

THE AMERICANS HAD THEIR CHANCES. PATRICK KANE TOOK TWO PENALTY SHOTS, ONE

IN THE FIRST PERIOD. AND ANOTHER IN THE SECOND. BUT HE COULDN'T FIND

NET.

IT WAS TUUKKA RASK IN GOAL FOR THE FINNISH TEAM. HIS 26-SAVES PRESERVED A

SHUT-OUT.

IN THE FINAL PERIOD, THE FINNS ROMPED WITH THREE MORE GOALS.

THE U-S OLYMPIANS WERE BLANKED, FIVE TO NOTHING.

SHANI DAVIS HUNG UP HIS SKATES FOR THE 2014 GAMES -- BY NOT EVEN SHOWING UP

. ONE OF AMERICA'S GREATEST SPEEDSKATERS SAT OUT TODAY'S THREE-MAN EVENT,

GLORY. BUT HE AND THE REST OF THE U-S SPEEDSKATERS HAD A MISERABLE SHOWING.

THEY WERE SHUT OUT OF A MEDAL FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1984.
