off throughout the day today. maybe some brief clearing but then those clouds begin to roll back on shore once again. so with that in mind, the temperatures today still nice. you're looking at some 70s n south bay and 60s to the coastline. east bay numbers up in the 70s and maybe a couple of low 80s. inside the bay you're looking at 60s and breezy in the san francisco. next couple of day, those temperatures not much change. and a few more clouds come our way on friday and saturday and looking dry and nice for easter sunday. all right let's check on the roads now with liz. all right, thank you lawrence. and tout door you may hit a little trouble spot right now and traveling through livermore. just near the north greenville exit. there has been an accident. and one lane is blocked you can see those speed sensors there already showing speeds about 36 miles per hour. so again those are live drive time sensors. backed up for about an exit right now. coming through the pass it looks okay until you reach that north greenville area and then once you get past there traffic is nice. this is a live look near the dublin interchange. again a little bit of fog may slow you down in that area.

capacity, it's only a short- term solution, at some point they are going to get burnt out as well. >> the details are still being worked out such as how many deputies the sheriff's department can spare. the plan will be introduced at the board of supervisors' meeting on tomorrow. police are looking for a man who hijacked an airport shuttle van in san francisco. the man talked his way onto the supershuttle about 4:00 sunday morning in the union square area. investigators say a few blocks later, he jumped into the driver's seat and pushing the driver out. he got into an altercation with passengers who managed to get out of the van with their belongings. the van was later found abandoned in alameda county. well, we have pictures from a border plane that had to make an emergency landing in nebraska. >> it was a southwest flight on its way to sacramento. passengers ended up actually tackling a man who could have quadded a disaster in-flight. the man was trying to pry a door open and apparently planned on jumping out.
