in between, so watch out for that. we will see the temperatures stay in the upper 50s to about 10:00, and then eventually we will make it in the upper 60s today. up to 67 in livermore. napa headed towards 68 degrees. nice in oakland again today reaching 66 degrees, and 67 in palo alto. not a lot of change ahead. we'll talk about that. mike, you are checking in on the berkeley curb? >> yeah, it's called the berkeley curb, because it's where? in emeriville. yeah, berkeley is not involved, but there's no issues with slowing. at the bay bridge toll plaza, we have seen fog registering in parts of the north bay, petaluma and fairfield for i-80, but not a major concern for drivers. there's an easier build. there you go, right on time. a little bit of slowing from northbound 101 to oakland road off of 680. back to you.

of that here. that rain just falls apart as it reaches in. there will be another system that is going to be off the coast, so maybe, maybe the end of next week, but right now we are just seeing a lot of sunshine in the forecast. thursday looks really nice. for some of the ceremonies going on, we will see the temperatures reaching into the low 70s for the inland areas, and a nice weekend as well. for san francisco, expect highs in the upper 60s, a mix of sun and clouds throughout the forecast into at least next tuesday. mike, you are starting to see that backup building at the bay bridge. >> yeah, metering lights turned on at 5:34, the exact time the lights were turned on. we don't see the build here on the lens, and we have seen droplets forming in the last hour or so and that has calmed down. as you leave your house, it could be slick so do watch out.
we have the build over at the bay bridge and incline because of the metering lights and the build of volume there. and highway 4 as a build back to pittsburg and that's from the earlier drive for folks traveling out of that area. you are at about 25 minutes from marsh creek road down to 580. traffic holding steady out of the altamont. we see that little build over here for hayward and off castro valley. 101, we're clearing from the first burst. we did see fog really far south on highway 1, so not a big concern this morning, but always
be prepared. fremont, the traffic flow is nice as you are traveling 880. from time to time we see this shot that shows the glow, and the issue could be mist or drizzle, but right now everything is fine as the commute builds heading south with the headlights heading towards fremont. back to you. you will be able to buy fresh crab off the boats at fisherman's wharf. crab sales are supposed to start next week, however it's now on hold after california's delayed crab season to protect endangered whales and sea turtles. covid not just affecting humans but sea animals as well. still ahead on "today in the bay," one of the new aquarium's vaccination efforts.
