>> i don't think so, especially when you don't have air-conditioni air-conditioning. we do have such poor air quality because of high pressure kind of trapping that smoke near the surface. so the pollution gets trapped, and each day the pollutants just build up, so we're in day three of this, and it will get better as we go through the week, but with the hot temperatures, well, we'll have to deal with this for a little while longer. so as that high pressure continues to build, it also produces some very hot temperatures as the air sinks. and today it'll billion 100 degrees, mountain view, 96 degrees, and still in the 80s in san francisco, but you can cool off at the outer sunset. it'll be 70 degrees, also 70 in point rays brentwood and 101 degrees in san ramone today. topping out at 100 degrees, it goes down as we go to the middle of the week, and i'll show you those temperatures coming up in a few minutes. right now let's see how the roads are moving with mike. >> good morning, kari, good recovery right here, look through the haze, this is the
