5:16 am
rosa. socked in with the stratus, the low clouds and fog and you can clearly see it forming right there off the coast hanging very tight to the seashore being enhanced by that right there. a weak disturbance and it is surging in a southerly direction. the precipitation associated with it has fallen apart very quickly at the seams as it begins to bounce off that huge ridge of high pressure which is now sliding ever so gently southeast. that's the area of high pressure that brought us temperatures all the way up to 58 in los gatos yesterday also 85 in pleasanton. here's your futurecast. we do have mostly cloudy skies north of the golden gate. as the day wears on we'll have increasing clouds across the region. becoming mostly cloudy with sunny breaks. otherwise on your thursday, partly cloudy skies. same on st. patrick's day on friday as the clouds continue to just pass through the area. so meanwhile we are going to play your forecast out like this today.

5:19 am
cash lane backup but it's disappearing easily there. 5:30 metering lights turn on and you will start to slow down heading into downtown san francisco. all right. let's move now to the san mateo bridge. if you are heading into the peninsula westbound 92 between hayward and foster city and smooth sailing there and if you are heading along the altamont pass, wow, this speed has dropped down a lot significantly from the last report. 11 miles per hour coming off 205 in tracy so give yourself extra time to get through there. plenty of time to get through this commute. it goes up to 30 once you hit north flynn road into livermore and the dublin interchange. bart on time so it's a great day to use that take a walk and then we have some updates for smaller boats through friday on the san francisco bay ferry all a.m. ferries from harbor to san francisco and some oakland to alameda ferries. get there early for smaller boats. thank you. time now to see what's trending today. taylor swift could be coming out with her new streaming

5:34 am
changes in the forecast. first off right there you can see the development of the low clouds and fog inching north out of monterey bay heading tight to the coast reinforced by that right there a weak disturbance that has precipitation associated with it. but as it moves closer to the bay area, most of it is dissipating. now the winds have rotated onshore west-southwest six san francisco, 10 sfo. calm inland picking up to 13 in fairfield. these winds will be consistent later today onshore with that marine layer out of the west 10 to 15 miles per hour. it is causing some problems as far as visibility is concerned in half moon bay less than one mile two-mile visibility in petaluma and barely under a half mile into santa rosa. again this is due to the low clouds and fog. today, low clouds and fog pushing back out over the open waters. we do fill in with clouds from the north. we'll call it partly cloudy initially then becoming mostly cloudy, maybe a sprinkle where
5:35 am
to across the north bay late day. temperatures coming down significantly down from 81 in san jose to 73. out of the mid-80s in the tri- valley to the low 70s so you will feel the difference. but still comfortable. but we do have three days of rain in the forecast. we'll talk about that coming up at 48 after the hour but right now let's send it over to roqui. >> thank you. i will forgive you for the rain because it's been so beautiful. 5:35. let's take a look at our bay area roads. starting with an incident here we have our first accident of the morning southbound 17 near redwood estates. it's a solo car crash in the santa cruz mountains partially blocking the right lane. it's all green in the area but expect delays as you head out in just a few minutes here. let's move now to the san mateo bridge between hayward and foster city. traffic is moving smoothly there. that's a quick 13 to 15 minutes. slow at the altamont pass, altamont pass to 680, 25 minutes or so. the bay bridge toll plaza metering lights are on.
5:36 am
slowing you down backing traffic up towards the maze so expect 10 minutes between the maze and downtown. have a great day, everybody! i'll send it to you. >> thank you, roqui. one year since express lanes first opened on 580 we have the data that shows how the option is changing the drivers' routines. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in dublin with the details. >> reporter: these lanes are giving you options. that's the bottom line. you can see from the sign behind me that right now if you want to use this express lane here in the tri-valley it's going to cost you 50 cents. a bargain if it can get you to your location quicker. this is all throughout the tri- valley corridor here on 580, dublin, pleasanton and livermore. now, since these express lanes opened in 2016, february 2016, the 580 express lanes have recorded almost 7 million -- or
5:37 am
actually over 7 million total trips. in january, about 27,700 express lane trips a day. express lane users experienced average speeds of 5 to 23 miles per hour faster than the other lanes. >> it's a carpool lane with a twist that solo drivers who choose to pay a toll can take advantage of unusual capacity and use the lanes. >> reporter: now, this express lane is in operation from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. and you need a fast track to use it, not a normal fastrak. you need "fastrak flex" so you can if you have one or two people in your car. if this lane gets totally jammed up with normal carpools, it is closed off to other commuters. so it's basically flex throughout the day. they call it dynamic pricing. live in livermore, anne makevoc, kpix 5. >> so anne, how much does the express lane cost on average
5:38 am
for drivers? >> reporter: yeah. really depends on the traffic at the time the time of day. the average trip costs about $2. but it can get over $9 if things are really jammed up. kenny? >> anne, thank you. witness testimony continues today in the sierra lamar murder trial. antolin garcia-torres is charged in the teen's death and accused of trying to kidnap three other women. the body was never found. if convicted, garcia-torres could face the death penalty. a car crash in the north bay leads to the remains of a woman reported missing more than two years ago. now investigators believe she was murdered. 64-year-old annie bailly was last seen at her penngrove home where her estranged husband still lives. after a crash, a motorist spotted annie bailly's remains off a cliff. her husband is a suspect.

we spoke to him hours after investigators searched his house. >> you feel like there's some closure now that now it's her? >> i knew she was dead a few weeks after her disappearance? >> how? >> she had $130,000 in her own name accessible only by her. not by me. and she never touched it. [ pause ] >> she never touched a dime. it told me she was dead. >> sonoma county sheriff's office won't say what evidence they have but we're told they towed a red toyota from the home that used to be annie bailly's. an east bay elementary school has a possible norovirus outbreak. dublin school district says the students started getting symptoms last week. the principal says at least three dozen students are out sick. the school has been performing a deep cleaning of the campus over the last few days. they hope that they can keep it from spreading. a canadian company is reportedly planning to merge two of the biggest names in
