you're down to about 14 miles an hour in that northbound direction but you're fine once you get past it. you just have a little bit of that slowdown right there. and a little bit farther north on the nimmits freeway. there is one lane blocked as a result of an accident. chp is on the scene and in the process of clearing that. is that should be on the way here shortly. and finally clearing an accident on westbound 580. before things get too crazy coming through the altamonte pass. down to 20 miles an hour out of the tracy triangle. we are beginning to see some slowing westbound on 84. that travel time now up to 30 minutes. you're still in the green elsewhere without a problem to report. bay bridge metering lights are not yet on. although it does look slow on the toll plaza. still not on. although i will be keeping an eye on that. the san mateo bridge this morning is looking a little bit
busier with some brake lights in that westbound direction but at least the skies, mary, are clear. >> that's right emily. yeah, we're starting off the day with mainly clear skies. love being out here in oakland on top of the roof on and clear morning. let's show you a live look with our sales force tower camera looking east at the bay bridge and there is some patchy light fog around the bay. mainly clear skies. temps are running on the cool side. and the mid to upper 50s to low to mid 60s. your weather headlines. less cloud cover and fog and cooler temps. humidity increases as we head through the afternoon. not as warm as yesterday afternoon. still above average temperatures for this time of year. warmer than average temperatures will continue not just today through the week and for the rest of august. and here's the reason why. the satellite and radar view is a strong ridge of high pressure building in and that is why
we're going to continue with our warm weather pattern. i'll fst taking you hour by hour as we head through the afternoon. we will have that sunshine for most of us. cloud cover could hang on a little bit longer along the coast and tomorrow morning areas of fog along the coast. otherwise mainly clear skies for the rest of the bay area. we'll see plenty of sunshine for your saturday with above average temperatures. your pollen report medium levels for today. increasing rain through saturday and sunday and especially for monday as we are going to see temperatures rise as we go through the next several days. it's not the best news for allergy sufferers. our sunrise at 6:31 and sunset at 7:51. daytime highs 5 degrees above average for this time of year. daytime highs 87 in campbell. santa clara topping out in the low to mid 90s.
90s in concord and pleasant hill. as well as for brent wood coming in at 96 degrees for the bay and low to mid 70s. low 70s in san francisco and berkley. for the north bay 86 for a high in santa rosa and 95 for cloverdale and for st. helena. if you're heading out to chinatown street fest this weekend in oakland, sunny and warm, great weather at 80 degrees. here's the 7-day forecast and as we head through the weekend above average temps heating up for sunday and especially by monday looking into next week we could have more humidity with that muggy feel back in the forecast by next week. but for the meantime we are live on top of the roof and a great morning to be out here. a little bit later in our next half hour i'm going to be talking about the focus of this high school which is stem and as you know that's a passion of mine and we have some amazing students that we talked to and we'll that that coming up. >> and you love numbers so it's
perfect. we love it out there. mary, thank you so much. 5:20. a backlash as sf general hospital. coming up the statewide staffing shortage that's part of the problem. and let's head outside as we take a live look at some of the traffic coming in to san francisco this morning from marin. we'll be right back. 1

that sunshine. we will show you the weekend forecast coming up. now for a look at traffic. enjoy those clear skies. there are mostly clear roads but i'm going to say that with a weird tone to my voice because i'm going to show you a live picture of not clear roads. you can see it's slow going in that northbound direction. it's really early for it to look like this. that is because of an accident northbound 880 just as you are coming through town before you hit the fruitvale neighborhood. that's happening at high street and that's really slowing you down as you're trying to head north. we're also starting to slowdown through the altamonte pass. you're still looking good on the east shore freeway highway 4 as well as 101 at this hour. i will say the bay bridge metering lights are on and that is getting backed up. >> i'm anne makovec live at the news desk. we are going live to sacramento right now where the two trains collided on the track.
