remainder of this weekend. well into the upcoming weekend skies out there will offer up a few clouds from time to time. but no chances of rainfall ahead of us to be closing out this hork week. so that means much more favorable weather to be getting out there if you're kind of done with the gray and gloomy stuff like we had seen the past couple of days. good news for you. you get a lot of sunshine as we round out these next couple of days. the reason behind that this ridge of high pressure starting to build in now keeping us dry keeping us sunny certainly replacing the storm system that made its way through yesterday. now, as far as temperatures go, we have one more day in the 60's and a few 50's right along the coastline. it is going to have a comfortable feel to it later today, partly because of all the sunshine that we're going to be seeing enjoy the 60's that we will see. but we've got some 70's just around the corner and that all kicks off tomorrow taking us through that weekend. so only getting a little bit warmer from here. resurgence in temperatures. also a little dry period ahead of us. something that i think a lot of us are going to
enjoy, especially those of you that maybe didn't enjoy so much. conditions that we had yesterday at times. now we will be looking at 70's solidly all the way through the weekend. we do cool down into 60's by tuesday of next week and slight chances of rainfall tuesday. a better chance come next wednesday back to your down the east. so much for that. all right. let's get a look at your wednesday morning commute right now, not tracking any hot spots at this hour. >> as you're traveling from the east bay and into the city right now. it's going to take you a little under and say 10 minutes to make that commute traveling along 5 8018, not seen any delays. it looks like there is a traffic hazard in el serino 80 westbound east of cutting bulevar. but that's not slowing traffic down at this hour. remember high winds on the bay bridge. the san mateo bridge as you're heading across towards the peninsula. you can make that drive and a little under 30 minutes. it's traffic also starts to pick up. remember, we talked about. there are still some lingering
slick conditions slow it down as you're driving settler and also get a look at things along the golden gate bridge that commute looks like as i'm looking at the golden gate bridge from the north bay traveling at least to the tolls. it will take about 20 minutes to reach that and the richmond center fell commute. hey out of looks much darker than it normally is. so that must mean one of the lights they're turned off at this hour. take your time as you're traveling still a little under 9 minutes. well, the san jose sharks beat the calgary flames despite being short players because of covid-19 plus a long time in the last player is retiring kron four's jason dumas says the latest for us in sports. >> the sharks still short-handed 7 players and their head coach still in covid protocols. none are currently allowed to even enter canada or cross that border where the first stop of their five-game road trip. san jose in calgary. >> take a look at skyline. never been the calgary. we have a tie game in the 3rd logan cut bill for cop show
