well, it looks like that's your cue to leave. a very good monday morning to you. it's 4:47 right now. looks a little foggy outside, maybe you can blame that on the haziness. we are seeing the fog creep in this morning. we'll see if it affects the morning commute in just a bit. >> but first let's look at the forecast with meteorologist, kari hall, before that. >> the fog lifts up but doesn't completely clear out today, and that's going to be the change we will see from the weather over the weekend. the fog coming in through the delta. it's really affecting concord as well as some of our east bay spots, and into the north bay with santa rosa's visibility down to a quarter of a mile.

parts of the north bay and less as you head south of the golden gate bridge. we have a lot of concerns here, once again going through the long range forecast with a chance of rain on thursday, and then dry conditions and slightly warmer temperatures for the weekend. as we get a look at the 7-day forecast, temperatures in the upper 60s over the next few days and even a chance of showers, and notice how chilly it will be this week. highs even cooler for wednesday and thursday at about 63 on thursday with a chance of showers nearby. san francisco will see temperatures in the low 60s as well. may see that off and on light rain in the forecast through friday. mike, you were checking the numbers at the bay bridge? >> quite literally. the new numbers here, really quickly, i thought they numbered the lanes to make it easier for me. no, it's easier for you to know that it's 25 miles per hour to get safely through the area, because you don't have to stop
to pay cash anymore. 25 miles per hour going through the cement guardrails. and then we have fog we are watching as well in the entireo highway. speeds are at the limit. back to you. >> thank you. sadly another person died from their injuries in the surge at the astroworld music festival. he was just 10 years old, and he has been in a coma since ten days ago. he was sitting on his father's shoulders when the crowd surged. a total of 10 concertgoers have died, and dozens of lawsuits have been filed. happening today in kenosha, wisconsin, closing arguments in the kyle rittenhouse homicide
