it's also not the wettest of warnings either. we've only had a couple of isolated sprinkles across the bay area. for most of us roadways are still very inviting and not looking at really anything out there that's going to slow you down too much. you can see at the golden gate bridge. there's some low cloud cover overhead. you may notice some moist spots out there just a couple of wet spots after a drop or 2 most of that rainfall state concentrated in northern sonoma county further north from there and then out into the central valley north of sacramento. so not a lot to note this morning and i'll keep you updated on in any of those showers do continue to progress across the region. but this line of showers really having lost steam. this was once part of his system that resulted in torrential rain for occur across the pacific northwest and a lot of flooding up there. it's just lost. so much energy is it's worked its way down our direction. so now we're just looking at the remnants of a few drops of water here. there. nothing that's going to slow you down this morning and certainly nothing that should slow you down after work as you're heading out, maybe for some holiday travels for the
week ahead. we are going to be seeing dry skies to finish the day that's through into tomorrow and sunday to for the rest of the weekend really for the rest of the week leading up to the holiday. we are going to see just a trace of rainfall for most areas, some spots will come out without even a drop. so if you don't see any rain, do not for a second. even be surprised 50's to 60's for your daytime highs near the coastline and that includes in san francisco and then pretty solid low to mid 60's elsewhere across the bay temperatures feel very similar to where we were yesterday. so keep the light jacket on much. as you did yesterday. freeman through hayward in the low 60's at 6463 oakland, you'll be at 62 today. a few upper 50's in areas like youngsville as well as mill valley out to point rays tomorrow's temperatures in the mid 60's and that's the way we'll stay on into monday of next week before we cool down a couple more degrees on into wednesday and thursday for thanksgiving when daytime highs will barely even make the low 60's. so we've got some cool temperatures, some overall dry
conditions through the holiday your next best chance of rainfall. does look possible towards the weekend after thanksgiving. >> rain. don, thank you for that. all right. so we have a hot spot. this is out in nevado. so this is southbound one. oh, one just south of daylong avenues ear and traffic is being diverted off at day long. we also know that they shut down the southbound traffic for about 20 minutes while they eat up right at that truck. it looks like a truck was carrying several and those all spilled over all over the highway. a good alternate would be roland boulevard if you're trying to get off and a long and get back on their let's also head over get a look at the bay bridge heading into the city right now. a little under 10 minutes not tracking any major delays there. san mateo bridge as you're heading across towards the peninsula. it's going to be a little under 30 minutes for you to make that commute. we're checking out the golden gate bridge about 20 minutes from the north bay as you're heading into the city and we'll leave you with a look at the richmond sandra fell commute which is still pretty light at this hour.

wade except way taller white not black. the dubs sleepwalking down 13 entering the 4th, but the warriors went on a 17 o run to begin to for curry to dealey. got to love that connection. we've got ourselves a tie game. and stephanie goes to work to take you see this kids using the left hand on the left side. that's aloft are. that's how you don't get the shot blocking now about getting an entry pass in the post. he doesn't always finishes with the reverse 85 81 back to the valley find him in the corner. he had 9 in the 4 finish with 11. but we have to end this with staff. he had 9, 3 pointers that patented its step back. he finished with 40 points warriors win one o 4.89. they are an nba best 13 2. up next, the pistons on friday serious step on that epic 36 to 8 run into for ports defense. it's just.
>> a good energy because not only are you feeling good making shots. but you find yourself always in the right position, making the right could so much making and even if i'm not the one taking the shot and there's something else. you know, good happened on the back of the plane was because the flow can we go shot for shot. and it becomes a lot harder because united still not getting stops. we're able to do both. and that's why have >> 36 to a quarter. kind crazy. >> unfortunately this right here was the much, much fight as the shark showed all night in st. louis. the blues brandon scored one of his 2 goals here. louis wins 41 to sharks return home saturday to take on the washington capitals. thank your look at sports. >> all right. why levi stadium the entertainment is soon going to last a bit later into the night for certain concerts and events because the santa
clara city council has voted to allow the forty-niners who run the stadium to host of the 5 events a year that can go until about 11:00pm at night. well, the current curfews allow that only on friday and saturday. it's set for 10:00pm on week nights. some neighbors aren't happy about the news one council member says earlier, curfew means it was lost revenue. >> i mean, the pandemic has done a lot to our community. and i think this is a great way to get our community out of that hole. and honestly, kind of bothered me when i was trying to sleep. if i live just small gap of the window to open. >> the noise and music pumping to my ears. >> some neighbors say they're not as bothered by the later curfew as they are by what they call a constant amount of air traffic overhead. it will be right back after the break.
>> welcome back 4.55 on this friday morning. today. we are starting things off with some mild temperatures. but a couple of sprinkles out there now nothing super significant. but keep your eye out for an isolated shower that will be keeping you updated on radar for. as for current conditions outside. let's get a look at half moon bay we've definitely seen some wetter conditions right there along the coastline. it's a mix of mist in the sprinkle that has been seen a time or 2 at the coast today. you can expect daytime
highs staying in the upper 50's staying mostly cloudy for much of the day before some peeks of sunshine this afternoon. you also get some sunshine towards the afternoon in our inland valleys with daytime highs in the low 60's. we will still see some patchy fog for further and areas but not as much as we had been seeing. it's actually warmer start to the morning that we've been seeing the past few days and part of the reason for that is all the cloud cover helping to shed shield us from temperature lost during overnight hours. so you'll notice that more mild feel to it this afternoon. we stay fairly cool. and even a sprinkles clear out towards late morning. we're still only going to remain in the upper 50's to low 60's rain. john, the event that arrival will smith visit wimbledon's world famous centre court. >> before the premiere screening of his latest movie king richard, which tells the story of tennis champion siblings. the need is and serena williams now smith plays richard williams, the tennis star's father. he said he was excited to explore the corbett had no desire to show off his tennis skills.
