think goodness we are getting some relief right now, temperatures have cooled off significantly overnight. we are back in the upper 50s for concorde and livermore. sixty right now leaving the house in oakland. san francisco still holding onto pretty warm temperatures. seventy-one in downtown, little warmer than that in west portal and twin peaks. so pretty warm start if you're leaving the house in the city by the bay. we will experience quick warming by lunchtime. it looks like most locations well into the 80s. take a look at what happens as we head into 3:00 p.m. looks like 90s develop for the north bay, east bay interior and south bay. we will see plenty of 90s throughout the area in fact some locations haven't been
5:47 am
this one since midday. so were talking about not only the warmest day of the week but one of the warmest date 2014. here's the breakdown for you, 91 in santa clara, everyday today and 97. we'll see plenty of 90s lots of sunshine throughthe san jose valley. while walnut creek 97. downtown san francisco about 17 degrees warmer than where we should be for this time a year. napa at 94 and 90 degrees in berkeley. so there is the possibility of seeing a few records. we could break the record in oakland i think san jose is also a contender. we have a strong ridge of high pressure and play over the bay area and coupled with offshore winds were seeing a warming for everyone and increase concern for fire danger. this high-pressure system will park in place over the next couple of days but a modest sea breeze will help wrigley temperatures along the coast for the weekend. today is also a spare the air day. we will continue with this trend over the next couple of days. the marine layer returns meeting more in a way of fog
5:48 am
but still pretty sunny afternoon into early next week. temperatures back to normal with low 80s inland and mid-70s bayside and upper 60s for the coast. we are not tracking any hot spots this morning, looking at a pretty good wright. but the metering lights have just been activated at the bay bridge so that means a change as the backup starts to fill in across the lanes. you can tell it is a little then lighter than usual day today because even with light activation that ramp is not backing up. the right to the san mateo bridge no metering lights here but a pretty good ride that nevertheless. still pretty low on the drive time, 11 minutes heading over towards san mateo and coming from the toll plaza. for the golden gate bridge we understand crews have wrapped up here so they have finished redistributing the pylons on the bridge. that means four-lane southbound, two lanes north
5:49 am
brown. your ride to the richmond san rafael bridge still watching here in the next ten minutes to see that not only tolling three but tolling for gets open this morning so that we have full staffing. as we track some drive times around the bay looking first at your east shore freeway drive still just 11 minutes. fifteen minutes through the san ramon valley. there was an accident on city streets at taylor and pleasant hill. they are still dealing with that downed power pole. west 580, lighter than usual ride even for the altamont pass. still delay free in the south bay for 101, 280, even highway 17 looks good coming out of the santa cruz mountains. when the lights go out in the city, people tend to lose their mind. especially if they're behind the wheel of an auto.
