a very good morning to you. what a beautiful, live look outside at san francisco this morning. the fog is perfectly over there. >> beautiful shot. >> nice glistening lights. nice way to start our morning, despite it being very ea it's 4:43 right now. >> many colors there. what is black and white and running all over? in case you're wondering, we are talking about wayward zebras in germany. one of them getting a good look at the sights in their ready-ma prison suits, police returned them to the circus. they wanted to get out and explore as i'm sure a lot of us do when we go to different places. >> always seems like circus animals take off running through
town. >> yes, that's a whole other story. >> right? so this morning, as we are starting out, getting ready to dash out the door, it's going to start outit some of our microclimates really foggy. we can see the layer of fog just above san francisco. that may lower as we go throughout the next couple of hours, and make visibility a little bit lower, but here is a look at our temperatures, as you get ready to step out. actually the coolest in the south bay and the peninsula, while it's a little bit milder for parts of the north bay. napa now at 55 degrees. we're also at 55 in antioch and you head down to livermore and it's 45 degrees. already a wide range in temperatures. as you get ready to head out around clayton, expect it to be patchy with some fog maybe on your drive this morning, and some upper 40s, as you start out throughout the day, and then heading into the low 50s, those clouds will hang around a little bit longer there, because of the fog, and then we're seeing clear skies, and clear visibility here
in the south bay. now, as we start out, getting dressed this morng, yound also the dress shoes will be good today. we don't have to worry about the rain boots or definitely too cool for the flip flops, so as we start out, we're going to have a cool morning, but then headed up to 64 at gilroy, and east san jose 62 degrees. really a nice afternoon, a mix of sun and clouds. up to 60 degrees in walnut creek, and where we have the fog this morning, the clouds will hang out a little bit longer, and we're going to be up to 59 in san mateo. 60 in the mission district today, and the north bay up to 57 degrees. i'm watching the approach of this storm system that will bring in a chance of rainfriday of the high waves, so the high surf advisory has been extended through tomorrowngtea up to 30 then we're looking at the potential of getting some very light rain on friday, and it's mostly going to be in the north bay. there will be some heavier rain
moving in by the end of the weekend. that could bring us some pretty decent rainfall totals mostly about a tenth of an inch for the east bay and the south bay, and then much higher for parts of the north bay from ukiah over an inch of rain as we head from christmas eve into christmas day. i'll talk more about that coming up. mike, you're starting out with a look at the tri valley. >> that's right, what we can see of this camera shot here in dublin, we see the flashing lights at the tassahara off-ramp off to the shoulder. folks driving by will see it better than we can see them from the rooftop camera. there's some fog there and light adjusting. that's the reason why you need to use regular beams when you encounter fog because the brighter lights reflects off of it and makes it tougher to see. crash is reported in that area, west 580 at north livermore. it sounds like everything is out of the lanes there but you saw something on the shoulder, may not be so easily discernible either. on the peninsula, a second report i told you about, north 101 at oregon expressway that
cleared to the shoulder as well. it was a hit-and-run so anybody you hear talking about a crash over there, they might want to call chp. smoo through contra costa county, coming off the benicia bridge and carquinez bridge. novato may get some fog drifting through and even around san rafael our live camera shows it touching the top of the southbo past lincoln. back to you. five years later in the shooting death of a teenager is still raw in santa rosa. sonoma county sheriff's department will pay the family of 13-year-old andy lopez $3 million. in 2013 a deputy spotted lopez with what he thought was an assault rifle. as lopez turned around,op h the deputy fired eight times. it turned out the gun was a bb gun, like a pellet gun. the lopez family alleged in the lawsuit the deputy acted recklessly. some tough questions focused on deputies using tasers in san
