back to the kron 4 morning news a time for you now 04:44am on this tuesday morning. november second already seems like members fly by. >> su question, is it acceptable now to play. christmas music. i know mariah carey. she's all defrosted. yes. ready to go. >> i think as long as mariah carey is playing on the radio. all the other songs are completely ready to go to our producer air just said they were planted in the newsroom yesterday so that means you can play it in the car right this morning and drive slow and drive safe because still slick and wet out there. so john, what are some of the holiday songs you're going play. i mean, all i want for christmas is the obvious. but i did see a friend actually putting up their christmas tree on facebook last night. it's like well, a year ago. but you know what, it is ok to do that because our days are getting a little bit shorter. we're working our way back into that wintry feel. go ahead. help bring some more
rainfall and snow to the mountains. our direction. if we all get in the spirit. you can see outside this morning that we do have the bay bridge and the flag there at pier 15 not blowing it all in the wind. it's actually quite a calm and dry start to the day with no new rainfall coming down actively that's not to say roadways are dry, though we obviously saw a lot of rain yesterday. so we do still have some damp conditions out there. we dry out as far as the skies are concerned. but yes, we are in the still a few slick spots out there. a little bit of mister especially along the coastline with some low lying cloud cover and a little touch of fog visibility hasn't been much of an issue this morning, though, skies will actually grow pretty clear by the finish the day today. now tomorrow is going to be a dry day. but come the evening. we'll see a line of showers making their way back into the picture. mostly after sunset tomorrow night. this is going to make for a very slick work commute on thursday morning. as you can see, most of the showers will be dropping in well into the early morning hours of thursday. that's just
going make things wet as you're driving into work here in a couple of days. as for today, daytime highs a little bit warmer than those. we had yesterday. part of the reason for that is well, actually have some good peaks of sunshine out there through those clouds today that will bring us into the upper 60's to low 70's for daytime highs. little warmer than yesterday. and with those hints of sunshine, actually, a pretty nice feel to it as you're venturing outside. so a good day on your tuesday to get back out there, get some of those errands done. maybe take the dog on the extra long walk or get the job out of the way tomorrow certainly will not be a bad day for that either. in fact, tomorrow is going to be warmest day on average of your forecast and showers won't arrive until after sunset tomorrow night, they'll carry us into your thursday morning before drying conditions come thursday afternoon weekend ahead. doesn't look bad. just got to remember to adjust those clocks back an hour saturday night before you go to bed as sunday morning time does change and that will mean that you're leaving for work after work on monday.
afternoon will likely be a little on the darker side as you're doing so that means we get an hour. so yes, you get that extra hour of sleep but we love for everyone else. it needs that. yes, you we work on monday afternoon just means it's a little dark little dark, but that's okay. yeah, get that extra hour's happening want to be safe because it start out there. let's get a look at the traffic this morning. we do have a hot spot in the city southbound. 1, one just north of that connector ramp looks like. >> 2 of the southbound lanes blocked on the northbound side. you've got 4 lanes that are blocks. so again, 2 lanes on the southbound side plots. 4 lanes on the northbound side that are blocked keeping a close eye on that as you're traveling. the adu also have some other accidents like a northbound at 98th avenue and another one along highway 24 just west of atlanta is road. so looks like some accidents in the east bay in the city. this is a very slick. so you definitely want to take your time as you're driving a little under 9 minutes. once you hit the may's to drive
into the city this morning. the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula, not tracking any accidents here. still a little under 30 minutes to make that drive. let's check out the golden gate bridge about 20 minutes as you head into the city this morning and the richmond sandra fell 80 with a look at that. look a little under 9 minutes for your drive time there. well, it's the latest effort to ease backlog at the u.s. sports, the los angeles and long beach ports. well, now find companies that slow down the on voting process. the new rules went into effect today and they require any and all containers scheduled to be moved by trucks so we deport after 9 days or face fines container set to move by rail can only stay in the ports for 3 days. some trucking companies are pushing back saying the backlog is not their fault, but instead it's the restrictions built into the process which are slowing them down. >> good news for the forty-niners. a few key players are returning this week and james wiseman is cleared to practice for the
