nice and comfortable in los gatos and tenderloin will be at 66 degrees and fairfield 76 and 75 today in brentwood. pleasanton a high of 74 degrees. now, that we've gotten rid of the rain that was here yesterday, that weather system has now moved over to the rockies and we'll have more of this dry weather and warming temperatures into the next couple of days reaching into the upper 70s to low 80s for saturday and then look at that some spots inland will be up to 85 degrees in the south bay and the north bay with mostly sunny skies. let's check in now with mike to see how the roads are moving. >> all right, kari. got a little anxious there because i wanted tohow you first of all the bay bridge toll plaza. that's just fine right now. we'll look at most of the bay. we're focusing on hayward. most of your commuters are going to be just fine. but hayward is where we're concentrating this morning and have been since just after 3:00 this morning.
