it all this morning. happy tuesday. let's take it outside. we are tracking some road work, eastbound along 580. i know the commuters don't have to deal with that, but we are slow in the westbound direction near the altamont pass area. if you're trying to get over to i-5, various lanes will be closed until about 11:00 a.m. they only had one lane open eastbound at one point and that was causing a backup. so heads up for drivers there. traffic is slow westbound 205. drive times are in the yellow between 205 and 680, just a little over 30 minutes. westbound highway 4 doing the usual thing, brake lights and speeds down to 40 miles an hour. it's 20 minutes over toward

5:50 am
hot, and it will remain hot tomorrow, especially inland. it will be milder at the bay and coast as well. then we have more clouds and humidity building in on thursday thankstothe moisture making its way up here. our high temperatures for the day are nice and warm, 88 for santa rosa today, 89 in napa. the warmest temperatures are inland, fairfield 96, and the south bay 86, cooler closer to the water. our coolest temperature is along the coast, 64 degrees in pacifica. seven-day forecast shows that warming trend. we'll be hot in the inland areas today. it will be cloudy and cool along the coast, low 60s pretty much the story for the rest of the week. tomorrow it will be even hotter, and wednesday will be likely our hottest day, in the
5:51 am
