heading out on the roads this morning. >> darren, you have the very important weekend forecast. how is it looking? >> technically tomorrow is the warmest day in the whole seven-day forecast, that will be saturday but today is the day when we do the biggest jump from one day to the next. today's the day when you notice things are starting to warm up. if we just do some of the math on this, how much warmer are we going to be today than yesterday in livermore and okakland, 12 degrees warmer. concord and san jose 11 degrees warmer and just to show you what that means for the actual numbers will end up, we're not doing anything out of the ordinary here. those temperatures while a little bit above average, maybe by like four or five degrees for some of the inland valley, it's or like they're totally out of range of what you would expect. tomorrow's about five to seven degrees warmer than those numbers. look at that in the seven-day in one second. first out, we are starting out with warm warnings. livermore is 48. let's get everybody's daytime
highs on here see where you're going. santa clara hits 77. mill pi pass 75 and redwood city is going to 72. numbers in the inland east bay will top out at 28 for pleasant hill, 75 dublin, pleasanton to 77 and back over on the bay shore, upper 60s for places like berkeley and san francisco, but mid-70s everywhere else, sonoma is going to 79. rohnert park hit 77 and we'll be in the mid-70s for mendocino county. the reason why we warm up noticeably more so inland today than at the coast is a classic summer scenario, onshore breeze, brighter the color stronger the wind along the coast today. that helps keep the temperatures in line if you're anywhere near the water but the further inland you get the less influence you have from it and you can see the pattern and the storm track. everything is getting pulled away from us now off to the north so no rain. look at saturday, it's warmer. so in the seven-day forecast, san jose might warm all the way up to 78 today, but tomorrow, it's going to be 84. then you come back down on
sunday and then you'll just kind of stay there for the rest of the seven-day forecast. same warmup shows up in the trend for our microclimates, 81 today inland east bay, 88 on saturday. gianna, how is the drive looking? >> off to a busy start on this friday morning. we have a traffic alert along the peninsula, if you're heading out the door taking 101 this morning, the hillsdale exit ramp and the freeway is blocked due to a crash. a lot of activity on scene and we're seeing some slow speeds now in that area, down about 12 miles per hour, so use 280 as an alternate. we'll let you know when it clears and if the backup gets worse. right now we are seeing brake lights starting to stack up because of the crash. emergency roadwork in effect on eastbound 4 in brentwood, all lanes completely shut down, right at walnut boulevard, use an alternate in the meantime and if you're getting ready to make that trek into the altamont pass, we are tracking brake lights coming out of tracy, getting on to 580, about 345 34
miles -- 34 miles per hour. headed toward the dublin interchange, getting crowded approaching 680. eastbound commuters you shouldn't have any troubles as of yet. golden gate bridge, most of the bridges are quiet this morning, a live look here and easy ride out of brent county into the city. bay bridge toll plaza, metering lights are off, which is great, friday light here if you're headed into san francisco, of course that will be busy over the weekend due to bay to breakers and headed across the san mateo bridge, windy conditions. caltrans issued a wind advisory. we're not tracking brake lights or issues. 808 the nimitz freeway commute is clear toward hayward, headed onto the bridge no delays here and keep in mind, once you get on to 101 you have a trouble spot northbound near hillsdale or right in the same area i should say, th o on efry. plan for tha morni drive. risefhe starie to the
