relatively mild day on the cool side of average topping out in the upper 50s along the coast and low 60s around the bay. low to mid-60s for the warmer spots inland. it might feel a little warmer today than yesterday due to the lack of wind. but temperature-wise we are right around the same warming up a little more tomorrow before we see this. rain approaching from the north beginning in the north bay overnight friday into saturday. spreading south saturday and through the rest of the weekend. i will time it out for you coming up in our full forecast in just a bit. in the meantime, roqui is timing out what looks like a rough morning commute. >> yeah, absolutely rough in milpitas and also in hayward. but let's start in milpitas here where we do have this traffic alert. northbound 880 at highway 237, it's a multi-vehicle crash and reports are saying it's involving 10 cars here. now, it was blocking all lanes. but now it's the two left lanes are open. and that backup is all the way to brokaw road. chopper is out there to give you a visual here.

and it's been out there since the northbound 880 at highway 237 was blocking all lanes and now those two left lanes are open for traffic to move through but as you can see, traffic is not moving all the way to highway 101 in san jose. now let's move over to hayward here. southbound 880, this was another traffic alert earlier that has now been canceled because all cars are moved off the road. this is before "a" street. it was a five-car crash but still, a lot of residual backup here into davis street in san leandro. 238 also backed up to 580. as your alternate because although this is cleared out there is still backup so you might want to take east 14th street from san leandro into hayward if you are headed out the door. julie, i'll send it to you. >> thanks, roqui. we are tracking chilly temperatures out the door this morning. temperatures in the 30s and 40s pretty much areawide. we have clear skies over the bay bridge. we really have a beautiful shot to start off your day. take a look at the current temperatures around the bay this morning. 38 in livermore. 35 in santa rosa.

like santa rosa over 1.5" possible for the northern portions of the state. certainly going to add to our rain bucket for this season. this month our average rainfall totals are three to 3 1/2 inches. so this will be a really nice addition to our rain totals for this month. high temperatures in the meantime will be mild today on the cool side of average. similar to yesterday we are going to get rid of that wind so it might feel watcher. upper 50s at the coast, low 60s around the bay and low to mid- 60s form the warmer spots inland. warmer still tomorrow as we make our way towards the weekend and then of course rain for this weekend. sunrise today 6:53 and sunset tonight 4:57. and a tour of some outdoor events this weekend, definitely grab your poncho or your umbrella. this weekend at the embarcadero center will see rain saturday. sunday might be the better day to hit the ice rink in downtown san jose. cloudy with a chance of rain
