6:17 am
little bit of fog hugging the coast and also right around san francisco where we see the shades of gray, that is where we do have a little bit of fog. it's not a huge issue this morning. and also right around concord and antioch. you may have some low clouds there. also in parts of the north bay but the most i've seen was visibility in the north bay. was it athree miles. so, it's not too terribly bad of a problem, but it is also chilly as you head out. look at these temperatures now in pleasanton. it's 39 degrees. dublin at 39 degrees and alamo at 42 degrees. a cool start to the day in the north bay now it it is 41 degrees. and you can see the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen as our temperatures warm up as we go into the afternoon and the next several days. hour by hour in san jose. start out in the mid-50s at 9:00 and 11:00 up to 63 degrees. so comfortable at lunchtime you'll want to take it outside.

low 0s today and as you ride home from work, windows down and sunglasses on. we will have more of a warming trend over the next few days as high pressure continues to fight back any clouds or rain that we could see this week. we will have an approaching cold front moving through by tomorrow but then it just fizzles out and dries up. we'll actually have a few cold fronts moving to the coast this week, but high pressure says, nope, you're not getting in and we are not going to have any rain. so our temperatures continue to warm up as we go through the weekend into the upper 70s. by thursday, it's going to feel like the ginning of summer out there. and in san francisco, low 70s. also some 70s for the east shore and north bay and the tri-valley looking at 75 degrees on thursday. by the weekend, our temperatures come down a few degrees, our next chance of rain not until sunday and looks like it could be very hit or mis. we'll be keeping an eye out on that. here's a look now at traffic
