seven days and above average temperatures during the afternoon hours. sure, we have several troughs well to the north of the bay area. but it's a huge ridge of high pressure that encompasses the entire state of california. that's going to keep us on the sunny-side up with those temperatures above average. so today begins the warming trend. mid-60s in throughout the sacramento area, stockton, merced and modesto. right now it's 12 above zero in truckee going up to a high of 51. we will experience 58 degrees in fresno with the abundance of sunshine and clear conditions. 60s pretty common across the bay area today up from 58 yesterday in livermore to 65. we are talking about a pair of sixes in mountain view and approaching 70 degrees in santa rosa and also in the oakland area. here's your extended forecast. a string of sunshiny days and temperatures in the 70s. wednesday all the way through sunday, temperatures in the 70s and sunshine. make it a great tuesday. here's gianna. we have a traffic alert to report right now. chp has issued a "sig alert"
for 580 westbound at hopyard. an overnight gravel spill is causing problems on the freeways so they have the three right lanes shut down until further notice. it's causing a big backup early on. 30 minutes now westbound 580. altamont pass to 680 and again those three right lanes are completely shut down westbound at hopyard. so that's going to take at least two hours to clear. that's according to chp. so we'll keep you updated on that. use alternates in the meantime and i'll get some alternates for you in my next report. taking a look at 580/680 interchange there, you can see traffic is pretty busy this morning. you have lots of cars headed westbound pretty well traveled part of the morning through the altamont pass. everything is quiet the rest of the bay area. here's conditions along 880 both directions. we do have roadwork southbound near marina and davis. other than that, though, things are clear as you work your way through san leandro, hayward, fremont. cutting across the san mateo bridge right now traffic is very light, 13 minutes between 880 and 101. jumping over to 880 through oakland, northbound not seeing any problems. southbound things are clear
near the coliseum. in fact, if you are planning on take the nimitz freeway between 238 and the maze, that only takes about 16 minutes right now. taking a look at the bay bridge, we have some roadwork in and out of the maze along 580. that should be wrapped up with the next 10 minutes. so far, though, commutes towards the bay bridge looks good. carquinez bridge to the maze only 18 minutes this morning. you're clear into san francisco. and no delays marin county, south 101, 580 to the golden gate bridge, that's an easy 14 minutes. back to you. >> thank you. 4:50 your time. warmer water in the ocean has already led to the toxic algae bloom that forced a delay in the bay area's crab season. >> now another possible effect, a sea turtle swimming in an unusual place. an angler on the san joaquin river in stockton posted a video on social media seeking confirmation his eyes were not deceiving him. take a close look. validation came from the turtle island restoration network. >> oh, my gosh. >> in marin county. >> there's no doubt in my mind this is an eastern pacific green sea turtle. i have never seen anything like
this in all my years of working with sea turtles which is some 30 years. >> all right. so the turtle apparently went into san francisco bay and is now heading east. the creature is normal living in warmer water, more tropical waters off central and southern mexico. a marin county salmon institute is being evicted from the place it's called home since 1973. san francisco state university owns a property that houses the tiburon salmon institute, which raises 10,000 chinook salmon each year. they were unable to reach an agreement over safety and financial institute so they are out by end of next year. is it a sign of the times or rather a symbol of the times? next, why oxford dictionary's word of the year isn't even a word at all. >> and what is cool about your school on this tuesday? email your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org and we may come out and feature it on a thursday morning. stay with us, folks. we'll be right back. ,,
