>> and it's 6:46 right now. a live look outside at downtown san jose. the entire bay area bracing for heat. temperatures could top 100 degrees in the bay. >> and let's start off with meteorologist rob mayeda. this could be some of the hottest weather the bay area has seen in quite a while. >> yeah, in terms of how widespread it will be, that will bes question of the day. it will be the coast and san francisco later on seeing some of that heat climbing into the 90s. you see 66 degrees. we'll take you in a little bit closer here. around the water toward north beach, you're seeing the numbers down toward the embarcadero in the low 70s caused by offshore winds. as the winds continue to move
6:48 am
offshore, it's very dry air. we're talking low dew point air out there. for the north bay, you don't have any winds this morning, you're waking up to low 40s and 50s. but otherwise the air is forced to drop down in elevation and dry out. it's the opposite of the more typical marine air, which brings in higher humidity and cooler air from the ocean. that pattern is going to be on hold for a while. probably not until around sunday will we see the return of that sea breeze. notice without the sea breeze, it's going to take a while to cool off. we'll see those numbers well into the 70s into the evening and around the rest of the the bay wear today, low to mid 90s around san jose. could get closer to triple digits. no relief out on the coast, unless you enjoy some of the the
6:49 am

6:50 am
up so early to exercise. at least a couple dozen people have been here at the campbell community center, it's a track area, since about 5:30 this morning. while there are always people here working out no matter the weather, many said they are getting their outdoor exercise in now before the -- it gets too hot. the temperature is cool and conditions are perfect. it's spare the air day today. the tenth one of the year, which means air quality declines as the heat intensifies, making it harder to work out for some people. so it actually is smart to exercise outdoors now before breathing or dehydration can become a problem. >> i make sure i'm hot. >> because? >> number one, it's. >> spare the air day does also
6:51 am
mean you should try to ditch your car and take public transportation. air pollutants will be trapped closer to the ground during the heat and your car's emissions will contribute to that, making the air quality worse. with any outdoor activity, keep well hydrated. the hardly blue gras festival will be prepared for the heat and help people how to deal with that. >> you can drop the temperatures right to our web site. >> now to some welcome and long-awaited news for south bay drivers, a 280 interchange. >> and drivers heading to northbound 280 will see a new signalized intersection. traffic will no longer cross under stevens street bridge,
