comes on through northern california. it should clear up sooner than usual. before lunchtime you should see the sun in most areas except along the coast. looks like the embarcadero was clear by noon. we may get that clearing even sooner. here's a look at the average temperatures for today. usually 68 for san francisco, 82 for oakland. today we're right there on average in oakland and san jose. a little cooler in san francisco and concord. let's check in on traffic now with jaclyn. good morning. a rough start for drivers for this friday morning commute. we have two sig alerts that remain in effect. we'll begin along highway 4. this is out near discovery bay. both direction shut down in that stretch with one fatality involved in the accident. so this roadway likely to be closed throughout the morning commute. we'll let you know when it reopens. in the meantime for drives, you can take south tracy boulevard or stick to byron highway to get around those closures.
