that is a live look from the tower looking back out across the east bay where the official temperature coming in from the oakland airport is in the mid- 30s. that is how you know this is cold. that number for oakland is taken from the airport. but you go over the hill, concorde is 35, livermore is 36. san jose, it is 37. santa rosa at 30. every one of these numbers is in the 30s except one, san francisco. and that is in the mid 40s. that is really the story. if we put a few more numbers on here, redwood city, hayward you are all 30. 32 in napa. the one that tells the story is the drop from 24 hours ago. at this time yesterday we were about 7 to 10 degrees warmer. the daytime highs are fine. we will warm up to sunny and 50. we have pulled in drier air and
6:17 am
got rid of the clouds. that is what allows the temperatures and i to drop. what does that mean for new year's eve? looking at this two different ways. here is the forecast for most of us. this includes the bay and in the valleys of the east bay. the numbers, by the time we get to midnight, are in the upper 30s. that is still cold. that is not the extreme. i'm going to change this and instead of looking at the bay, we are now going to look at the inland valleys in the north bay. and watch how the bars really come down. by the time we get to midnight it is near freezing. so, take that into consideration if you are going to be out and about for new year's and you are in some of the inland valleys. so when is the next time it is going to rain? look at the seven-day forecast. it is going to be a while. we have a chance for some lice hours to the early and mid-time of next week. but it doesn't look good. that will mainly be rain for oregon and washington state. if we get any, i have a small
6:18 am
chance on there, it does not look like it will be big-time rain totals. that is where it stands for now. back over to you. we have a couple of hotspots this morning. what we would typically see on a regular work day. but we have our photojournalist who is out and about. he just traveled along highway 24 heading near the tunnel. all clear. we had a traffic alert they are but everything is now wide open. you can see traffic moving on 24. not a lot of volume this morning. that is good news if you have to get up early to head to work this morning. tipping over, the trouble spots we do have, we are tracking if you break life at 880. they just issued a traffic alert in fremont. northbound 880 from niles road, the traffic alert has been issued. entry ramp is what is blocked. also dakota road. we are seeing speeds down
