and low 70s. but i wanted to show you this. we will have a heat advisory in effect for solano county and parts of the central valley. they've already had weather very hot like this, so for parts of the east bay, we have an excessive heat watch because this may be the first time we've seen widespread triple-digit temperatures in parts of coco county, alameda county and also in the hills in santa clara county. as we look at what's happening here, we've seen also still that monsoonal moisture causing it to feel more humid. we are going to watch out for the potential of some of that lightning to continue over the next couple of hours, but it looks like this activity will start to taper off. so this weekend, as you make plans, make sure you drink plenty of water, you're taking frequent breaks if you have to work outside and keep a cool towel on your neck that, will help out, too, and never leave any pets or children inside of a car. you get anywhere from 30 to 50 degrees hotter and the pets need extra water this week and bring them in to the air conditioning.

blocked because there's debris in lanes as well. i'm not noticing slowing in any of the major lanes but it looks like it could still be a bit of a hazard. westbound 580 toward richmond bridge six minutes. westbound 80 toward the bay bridge nine minutes and westbound 92 toward the san mateo bridge, 11 minutes. other than that, we're seeing a friday-like commute. back to you. >> thank you, vianey. a follow-up on the brush fire that threatened homes earlier this week in the east san jose foothills. it is now completely out. flames did destroy a barn but firefighters say two nearby homes. the fire burned 80 acres. a new measles case in southern california, the 16th confirmed case in l.a. county this year involves a resident who traveled outside the united states but later visited some locations across the. now congresswoman tulsi gooe of tre unfairly. >> a lawsuit says following the first democratic debate last month the search engine suspended her campaign ads, that
