5:09 am
low 60s and then in the low 70s by lunch time, so we have a nice trend today with a wide range in temperatures from the low 60s near the coast to the mid to upper 90s for the inland areas. we'll have another look at this forecast coming up. mike, any more issues on the roads this morning? kari, there's one that i thought was clear so let's take a look at the big view of the bay. everything is looking pretty normal from our view. green along the peninsula, the south bay, and looking south of the map. highway 17 near the summit. a disabled big rig. i thought it had cleared. it had not. i believe the tow truck is on scene now. one lane is blocked. that's why you have slowing heading down to the summit. you see the sensors just changed again. we'll keep tracking that. meanwhile the build for the altamont area, the tri-valley, no surprises. back to you. >> thanks, mike. well, a rare attack. still ahead for you at 5:25 that growing concern after a woman is

5:15 am
republicans had in mind. neither plan includes the president's idea of a payroll tax cut. now the argument over the $600 extra a week is fairly simple. many republicans feel it discourages people from going back to work. after all, if you weren't making that kind of money, it would just make economic sense not to take a job that pays less than not working. a brand-new study out of yale shows that may not be true, workers do go back to jobs even if they do pay less possibly because workers realize a steady job is better than unemployment benefits that will at some point run out. this is judy shelton and it's looking more and more as if she will not be a new federal reserve governor. republican senator susan collins says she will vote no on trump's pick. mitt romney has already said no. a third and her nomination will sink. she is controversial. many think she would make the

5:19 am
thanksgivinthanksgiving -- over the past 12 hours i'm looping the radar not because we've had stuff happening over the bay area but as we look at the sierra there this is what we typically see, monsoons comes in and causes storms to develop. we've seen that happening for at least the past week. and then look at all of the activity that happened yesterday. if you will be traveling there, make sure you're careful. over the weekend we found out that we had our first lightning fatality since 2015, and this was a man just getting on a jet ski and was struck by lightning. so just a heads-up about that that we're still going to see a chance of storms in the forecast over the next few days. as we look at where we're starting this morning in the bay area some low clouds and fog and we're still looking at a wide range in temperatures. that fog will linger as we go
5:20 am
into todayur temperatures will start to warm up for the inland areas. so so at noon we're at 81 in antioch and 79 in san jose. but then you head over to san mateo where it's 70 degrees and during the middle of the day the peninsula in the mid to upper 70s. we'll see some 90s for the interior valleys. and then that fog rolling right back in once again. as we go through the seven-day forecast it will be slightly cooler for the rest of the week but not by much. just coming down a couple of degrees. and it will be another hot weekend as we reach into the low 90s. but really no major changes for san francisco as we continue to see that fog right there near the coastline. mike, how is it looking right now for the commute? it's looking good, kari. we will take you to the big view of the bay. folks are able to get most areas o of the altamont and that's holding with a standard build and easing up past north flynn road. slowing for 84.
