4:49 am
cooler temperatures. take a look at our highs for this afternoon, a lot of changes here and we'll still have a wide range in temperatures with low 60s in half moon bay, but you head up to ukiah where it will reach up to 88 degrees today. the fog moving in to santa rosa keeps it cooler there and we'll see in antioch today a high of 83 degrees. that was after hitting 100 yesterday. so as we go into the weekend we're going to start to see these clouds moving in today. by tomorrow morning we'll wake up to scattered showers. there will be the chance that as the storm system approaches we may have some thunderstorms and lightning especially for the north bay and parts of the east bay and that mostly happens in the morning. in the afternoon these little cells may be popping up that could produce thunderstorms mostly once again for the north bay and the east bay. some lighter showers, a very unusual storm system for this time of year. at the end of may we're starting
4:50 am
to dry out, and so we're looking at a model showing us we could see about a tenth of an inch of rain, maybe higher further to the north with ukiah reaching up to 0.3 of an inch of rain. much needed if the storm could possibly bring some lightning and then as we look at the rest of the forecast the chance of rain comes in tomorrow. sunday we're still nice and cool but the clouds will linger. next week it gradually warms up as we head back into the low to mid-80s next week. vianey, you've been tracking that morning fog. how could that affect the drive this morning? >> whenever it comes to visibility, always a concern. i did see chp issue a fog advisory for the golden gate bridge and a wind advisory for some of the bridges. so far we're doing okay, crashes that have now cleared.
4:51 am
an idea when it comes to the toll plaza, there was an earlier crash but that was along westbound 80 not affecting that at all. just a couple. hopefully we won't see any metering lights. we should see friday light commute. a live look at san jose along 280. that's doing fantastic as well, no reports of any crashes there. but getting over to my traffic maps i did just see what looks to be a pop-up along 580 in the tri-valley. i am going to go look into that and see what that's about. hopefully it's not causing any major delays. a closer look on that and another update coming up shortly. back to you. sounds good. we'll check back with you. some bay area churches are planning to reopen this week. that would be defying local health orders. this week governor newsom
