4:47 am
skies clear, passing high clouds, otherwise a lot of sunshine on this tuesday and probably a few more clouds coming our way as we get into wednesday. so with that in mind the temperatures going to warm up a few degrees. highs today in the 60s and 70s in the south bay. 60s along the coastline. east bay numbers up into the 70s in many spots. then inside the bay should be a very comfortable day, 71 in oakland. 67 degrees in san francisco. next few days looking good but look what happens on friday. that storm system drops into the bay area. we could see rain right around game time maybe some gusty winds too on friday. that could cause some problems. let's hope that doesn't happen. we could use the rain but maybe delay that just a little bit. let's check the roads with elizabeth. thank you, lawrence. we were watching some breaking news in san francisco. there was a water main break and it still closed a portion of 22nd close to san francisco general. so what's shut off now, the water is shut off and 22nd is closed between vermont and san bruno avenues so they can repair the street. this is the street again right
