6:09 am
tri-valley. we start out with a cool morning in upper 50s and then we will only make it into the upper 70s and low 80s today. if you are planning to go to the park in san ramon today, expect it to be a cool start at 66 degrees, and then noon, 75 degrees and reaching the upper 70s there today with breezy winds. here's a look at the high temperatures in some of the hotter spots like ukiah, reaching 82. mostly 80s inland valleys and 60s for the coast. mike, so far the commute is looking good. that's right, so far, pretty good. we are looking at a nice drive on the freeways. standard over there in livermore. driving down the upper east shore, and as we see in the summer months more builds towards 7:00. highway 37 already indicating more traffic out of vallejo.

6:19 am
cool coastal areas going into next week. the high pressure blocking off a storm system from moving into the pacific northwest, but if the high pressure can move out of the way this could provide cooling to the bay area. we will have warm weather from saturday through wednesday, and we reach into the mid-80s today and tomorrow. the inland areas, san francisco, low 60s today and foggy, but we should see a little more sunshine starting tomorrow and continuing through the weekend. mike, now you are seeing a delay for bart riders. yeah, bart alerted us to a delay and they are not saying how long but they are saying trains are not stopping at the embarcadero station, and that would be a big issue for the system as that's the gateway into and out of san francisco, but trains are not stopping. go to montgomery, and you can catch the trains or jump off there. we also have muni.

muni is not servicing the lines either because of the water, and they are a level just before where you are seeing right here. this is a huge problem. let's take you out to the traffic system to get the words on the page so folks understand what i am saying. for folks going to muni, you have to go to the montgomery station that is nearby, and for bart, the last station you can join is at montgomery because there are no other stops until you get to the oakland side. right now it's 6:30, so that's going to be a problem getting out of san francisco on bart and getting through the area. no boarding for muni underground at the embarcadero station. the buses are not affected because it's just water in the station, or falling through the station, i guess, in the embarcadero area. bay bridge as the metering lights on, and the rest of the bay is pretty smooth. on this thursday morning, as we get started we can see the clear sunrise over the south
