reaching 87 in san jose, and 88 today in gilroy. so we'll talk more about what's ahead as we look at all of our microclimates and mike, you're seeing some slowing on the peninsula. >> a little bit. not enough for most of our sensors to pick up. flashing lights here, to clear some cones in the next bit, about a half hour northbound past university, willow, up toward marsh. the stretch of roadway also approaching the bayfront expressway saw some slowing. that might be crews getting ready to help the crews on 101 other patches with minor roadwork but no major clesheuos. breaking news to start out out in the south bay, a man clinging to life after a brutal stabbing at a gas station on east hamilton avenue, right off of highway 17 in campbell. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us in campbell with what police are saying at this point. kris? >> reporter: right now they're not telling us a lot of
information, laura but they are still here on the scene gathering evidence. some of the globes you see around the scene, those are 3-d cameras capturing what the scene looks like. investigators have been here for hours this morning at this shell gas station on hamilton, right off highway 17, this isn't too far from the home depot here in the area and the kohl's store. it was just after 1:00 a man was stabbed here and according to the manager of the shell station, his overnight attendant told him that the man looked like he had been stabbed several times. he was near the gas pumps at the time. that victim was transported to the hospital and we don't know his condition at this morning other than he might be fighting for his life. now campbell police have not told us yet whether they have a suspect description at this point, but if they do, we will pass that along to you. often we know police ask for information from the public so if you were in this area, hamilton at 17 and shell gas station, you might want to give campbell police a call. in campbell, kris sanchez,

quickly start to heat up again today. a few of those high clouds drifting by. as you head out the door in the south bay, expect it to be in the mid-60s there, and then leading into some low 80s by 11:00. so your morning is still looking good, and fairly comfortable, and our temperatures this afternoon will be slightly lower than we've seen recently. reaching 87 i downtown san jose, now that's still above normal but it actually is one of the cooler days of the week and as we head over toward the east bay, reaching 92 in pittsburg. 92 in danville, and up to 86 in fremont. half moon bay mid-60s there. palo alto reaching 81 degrees. the marina district reaching 65, while the mission is up to 69. 77 in mill valley and 95 today in ukiah. high pressure still giving us not much of a wind right now, and then we are also seeing tropical clouds moving in from the remnants of what was tropical storm ivo.
