Cloud cover known as marine stratus was showing up in the Bay area – and extending into the Sacramento area on Tuesday morning.

The high clouds and the accompanying Delta breeze are expected to produce much cooler temperatures on Tuesday. The leading edge of the Delta breeze was extending into the Oroville and Chico areas in the Sacramento Valley and into the Modesto area in the San Joaquin Valley at 3 a.m.
