good morning, santa rosa. you have cooled to 48. but notice livermore you're still in the 60s. same in san jose. you not sure the winds are relatively calm but that's a huge factor in the forecast today. southwest wind 20 to 30 miles per hour. gusts to 35 especially right there pretty robust around the seashore into the bay. everybody is a bit breezy to windy today. we'll have significant cooling but this is only a transition to much cooler days ahead and even we're talking rain and we'll have that detailed forecast coming up at 18 after the hour but right now let's say good morning to roqui. >> good morning, roberta. time now 501. let's check the altamont pass. we have a new crash to report. that's westbound 580 after grant line road. it's a two-car crash blocking the left lane. already adding to some slow- moving traffic coming off 205 at just 10 miles per hour, so we'll keep you updated as to when that's cleared or else it will be a nightmare along the altamont pass. going into livermore and then into dublin, here's a live look
