15 minutes to stay on schedule. 6:48 let's go to steve in the weather center. thank you, sal. we do have a couple low clouds and high clouds trying to merge here. i doubt much is reaching around. it could be a little bit. the system looks like it's splitting here. that is wrapping back around. you can see it's heading back from the valley. and there is a fog this way. so you're seeing emerging. you don't see that all the time but that is what we have. 50s and 60s on the temps. not the 70s. the 70s are gone. as much as 8-12 degrees cooler than 24 hours ago. 7 degrees cooler at sfo. hayward, mountain view. 12 for concord and 11 for
6:50 am
fairfield. westerly breeze or some component of it. west, southwest fairfield gusting to 25. some thunderstorm activity over mendocino county and lake county. as the loamies in south of us, it's taking that moisture and moving it back into the east bay. but this system to the north will push it out of here. i don't think that will happen again today. 50s and 60s on your water temps. the 50s would be in the green. the 60s in the yellow. it's pretty quiet until you hit santa monica. and then you can find 70-degree temps. pa a lot of cloud cover and a few showers. 63 ukiah. 60 monterey.
6:51 am
65 sacramento. 51 south lake tahoe with 60s blue canyon. and guess what, it will happen again today. during the afternoon and it falls apart. although it looks like it's moving off toward the east. i think one more day. by the time we get to wednesday and thursday they should be on the calmer side. fog is moving down the coast but the clouds are wrapping back around. there is breezy and there is fog. that means 60s and 70s and 80s and some 90s. we are seeing a decrease in those temps. 70s to 80s. a little bit of moisture and humidity to the east but much cooler with the breeze, coast, and bay. so that humidity factor is going down. but the trend is cooler weather wednesday, thursday especially thursday. >> feels good outside your door right now. >> i believe it. 6:51 is the time. new information about the bridge that collapsed in southern california. cut off a major artery between
