9:22 am
napa is only at 56. here's emeryville where yesterday it climbed into the upper 60s with some sunshine, a little breezy. we will do it all again today. so it is overall another cool day, but the coolest day comes tomorrow with numbers coming down in some neighborhoods a few more degrees. a slow recovery by the middle of the week. this is downtown, of course. i want to give you a little bit of perspective as to where we should be this time of year. notice the first column average temperatures. we see plenty of 80s, in fact upper 80s, but we go to this column, high temperatures today and only one lone 830-degree temperature. that's in livermore at 83 with just six degrees below average. san jose, many 70s replacing these 80s. that brings us anywhere from four to eight degrees below average and even oakland today slipping into the upper 60s. so it has been that regime with the low clouds and fog dominating our forecast. here's the look ahead in livermore. so it's pleasant today and notice very little change right on through the worka little bumd

committed to resolving employer concerns behind this i will bill. we share the concern of wanting to make healthcare more affordable. meanwhile employers feel trapped. with 40% of the business in the state, they may feel they don't have to negotiate rates. and removing kaiser from a benefits plan may not be realistic because they are popular with workers like this woman, who has been enrolled for 50 years. >> i love them, the pharmacy, everything. everyone knows me. >> in sacramento, abc7 news. happening today, ucsf will offer free dental screenings for kids during the city's sunday streets celebration in the mission. university dentistry residents street residents will perform the screenings and provide education for children and their parents. no appointment is necessary for the screenings that will take place from 11:30 to 3:30 this afternoon on 24th and harrison streets. this is all part of the fifth sunday streets event of the
