6:16 am
as you work your way past the accident. even past that is a little slow. in fact, you're backed up beyond 680 at this point. give yourself some extra time there. you might want to use 280 in the meantime heading into san francisco. checking our drive times right now, the portion from hellyer to san antonio avenue 34 minutes in the area. all right. jumping over to areas of 80 eastshore freeway westbound really slow as you work your way out of vallejo this morning into richmond but that's typical for this time of the morning. busy at the bay bridge. are you busy this morning, roberta? >> i'm very busy. gianna you look so lovely in your warriors blue. >> thank you. >> what do you think about kevin durant? is he going to play. i'm okay if they hold him out. get a couple of days rest but i want a healthy kd for the rest of the play-offs. >> we'll see what happens. matt barnes is questionable, too. hey, good morning, everybody! this this is our live hi-def doppler radar. we are clear skies in santa rosa but we have the fog developing along the immediate seashore. that's because we have rain well to the north of the bay area penetrating the northwestern section of the
6:17 am
state of california. these clouds are associated with the marine deck building offer the immediate seashore. a better view of this from sutro tower looking out towards -- [ foghorn ] >> gotham city. isn't that dramatic? one more time. [ foghorn ] >> waking up to the foghorn along the immediate seashore this morning, clouds will break up dissipate and then we'll see increasing clouds later on this afternoon. it's 10 degrees cooler in redwood city, also livermore and san jose and santa rosa all checking in, in the 40s. 50s around the rim of the bay. lotus say good morning to bay. winds under 5 miles per hour for the most part. now at 5 in oakland and really rotating around to the west- northwest south-southwest at sfo no reports of any delays there as far as airport is concerned. west-southwest at 10 in the
6:18 am
fairfield area. these winds will be more consistent out of the south and southwest later this afternoon 5 to 15 miles per hour. three things to remember: a chance of rain next wednesday and thursday, otherwise dry weather through the end of april. this is the very latest area of low pressure. it's weak in its dynamics. it has very little precipitation with it, small amounts of rain. we'll get one more shot of rain showers, pretty much in the overnight hours. here's your wednesday. here today at lunch hour we start to see the clouds thicken and then we see the leading edge of the precipitation in the far sonoma county area. now, watch what happens as it sags south. it falls apart. right? so if we see any kind of rain from this at all, about a trace in the san jose area, about .14" in santa rosa.
6:19 am

6:31 am
coming at a time when federal regulations protecting the environment are being rolled back. the vote also comes just as the american lung association ranks the bay area as one of the most polluted regions in the country. and, of course, not everyone is thrilled about it. oil refineries have already sued the air district over greenhouse gas restrictions. and supporters of the plan say that this is supposed to be a goal for post-carbon world. so an ambitious plan. the board meets today in san francisco to vote at 10:30 a.m. jessica flores, kpix 5. san francisco's mayor has just announced the city surpassed its goal for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. they want to lower the emissions from 75% from 1990. mayor ed lee said they were reduced 28% and that milestone was reached two years earlier than the target date. right now a bridge in moraga is off limits to drivers
