slowdown from 580 back to 24. not this morning but it's stacked up there for at least a good 15 minute wait. that's your kcbs traffic. another check of our warmer forecast here's roberta. it will be near or record warmth today at least one record will be realized and that will be dill roy. the old record was established just a year ago at 70 and today we're forecasting 72 degrees. i'd say christian can follow along here. i'd like to taffe a look at -- take a look at the live weather camera outloors right now. because i am getting some reports of some fog and i don't think that's so much the case right here. nope it is clear as we take a birds ewe view out towards the bay bridge. but if you're in the santa rosa area we currently have areas of fog limited visibility down to a half mile. otherwise you want 40s? we have it. in san francisco, and in mountain view you want upper 30s that's can'tly the temperature in redwood city. it's in the 30s at the delta. backing all the way through fairfield. and there you have santa rosa
at 33 degrees reporting areas of fog. five -- five straight days now of winter spare the air day alerts. it's the 11th of the winter season. and i can see us going into the weekend with alerts at hand because we have stagnant winds out of the southeast at 5 near record warmth today. especially across the southern portion of the bay area. cloudy and cooler by friday. but no rain chances until maybe, maybe next thursday. this is our futurecast. we do have an area of low pressure that wants to brush up against the northern half of the state. by thursday, but the rain chances are minimal and you'll see the green specks there. they will remain offshore. so we are under a huge dome of high pressure. it's diverting the storm track well to the north of the bay area. we will see nothing but the stagnant air and sunny skies and near record warmth. hazy sunshine today sfo no reports of any delays. meanwhile only 13 degrees and blizzard-like conditions in chicago. numbers, 60s and 70s for
daytime highs today. and take a look at the extended forecast, i think we'll see more widespread warmth on your wednesday. and then we'll cool it down and have seasonal highs by the weekend. have a great day everyone. okay. roberta thanks. scaling yosemite will no easy feat. it's been done before but alan martin says not bare handed on this particular path. >> reporter: on the dawn wall it's not that no man has gone before. it's that no man has gone before this way. >> no one has climbed this section of rock on this wall with only their fingers and arms as their tools. >> reporter: tommy and kevin of santa rosa are more than halfway up the dawn wall. the vertical sheer face of granite on yosemite's 3,000 foot el capitan and they're free climbing. no ropes except to hold gear and catch them if they fall. >> we also do mount st. helena.
