6:17 am
construction. not far from here. that really backed up the morning commute but as you can see, everything has been clear and it looks really good this morning traffic actually free- flowing northbound 101 into san francisco. all right. with the forecast, here's roberta. just a matter of minutes ago crissy sent me this beautiful photograph that she snapped in livermore. and that is so pretty. thank you! and i want to thank all of you for keeping me entertained. keep the photos coming to marine in our control room is providing us this scene right now. the moon is beginning to slip away but that's a mini moon or a micromoon. it's the smallest moon that we'll see this entire year. and it's the smallest basically because of the proximity of its location to planet earth. right now, in the mount vaca area we have temperatures in the 30s. santa rosa is at 38 with a northwest breeze at 4 miles per hour. but making it feel like it's 34 degrees out the door this morning. livermore at 37. it's 47 degrees in oakland. so you need a jacket heading
6:18 am
out the door but later today, temperatures again above average for the 6th day of the month of march. we have rain in the forecast. i'll talk more about that. see that clear slot? the coast is clear diverting all the clouds to the north of us. that's because we're under the ridge of high pressure system. that's parked over the western states not going anywhere very quickly. however, we do have this area of low pressure right here. and as it slips down south, it's going to make a dent in the ridge of high pressure. but it's got a lot of work to do. this is a really impressive strong ridge of high pressure. so by the time that low breaks through the high, we will see increasing cloud cover tuesday and only lights amounts of rain on wednesday. today sfo, mineta international airport and also oakland not reporting any local airport delays except laguardia, still a little snag in traffic there. meanwhile denver it's a warming trend into the 50s. chicago's currently 12 above zero going up to 28. 56 in houston. new york city clearing out from yesterday's snow at 27 degrees.

6:24 am
instead of early april. >> trying to, you know, move out of the way and, you know, kind of ran in and caught him there and, i guess, silver lining is it's early in the spring so at least we'll have a month to start the healing process. >> football news. the 49ers have signed receiver jerome simpson best known for his flip touchdown in 2011 while with cincinnati. he was with minnesota but didn't play last season. san francisco also signed defensive end darnell dockett for 2 years $7.5 million. he missed last season with a torn acl. he said during an interview, quote, the 49ers hit the lottery. let's hope so. and the raiders runningback maurice jones played one year with oakland last year, he is retiring. i'm dennis o'donnell, have a great weekend. play of the day from the nba oklahoma city at chicago the bulls had the ball trailing

6:32 am
>> it's very humbling. it's overwhelming. the joy this brought to people's lives. everybody wants to tell me their experience with the bay lights. so it's amazing that it can remain. >> reporter: what was it like for you as you saw the lights fading this morning? >> definitely bittersweet. it's something that, you know, people love so much. and i certainly love. and -- but, you know, they will be back in about 11 months. >> reporter: all right. absolutely. leo villareal, thank you for that. he is the artist behind the bay bridge lights project. as you mentioned it is going to be back by next january just in time for super bowl 50 because they raised about $4 million in private donations to make this a permanent fixture. it's a new part of the san francisco skyline. we just have to live without it for about a year. live on the embarcadero, anne makevoc, kpix 5. we can live without it for a year as long as it comes back. it looks like a beautiful day out there already. >> yes, right? those lights will go up march 5 in 2013 so almost two years to the date they come back down. but we'll all be waiting for them to come back up. something we're watching coming up? >> brian?
