but unfortunately, we have a rough start to our morning commute. >> this is due to a deadly crash last night. all lanes in the new york direction of 880 shut down at auto mall parkway. while they do their accident investigation. this is a sliding scale. definitely having a huge impact on the morning commute. that is -- now that we are approaching the 6:00 hour, we are definitely seeing those delays build. so traffic backed up beyond mission boulevard at this point. the automall parkway on-ramp is closed and 880 so you can exit before automall parkway so you don't just sit in the backup. get off at fremont boulevard but you will be sitting in some delays along those surface streets. you can take mission boulevard over to 680. and use that as an alternate. and that's looking good and in the green moving at the limit.
we have another problem in the south bay. this is a connector ramp from southbound 280 to northbound 87. that remains shut down due to some flooding in the lanes. they are looking into that to see what's causing that flooding. we know it's not rain. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, here's a live look at the maze. you can see the backup definitely not to the foot of the maze just yet. the metering lights are on and you can see we are dealing with a full crowd beyond that 880 overcrossing so a heads up in that direction. it is getting slow and we are tracking a travel time about 20 minutes into san francisco. the only thing you will see is mist especially if you are near the coast but right now a lot of drivers are dealing with traffic of course. also gray skies out there. yes. it's cool and it's a little gloomy again. sunrise at 5:58. probably won't see too much of that sunset at 8:13.
going to continue to see that marine layer return tonight, as well. so most of the day today especially the coast in the bay looking at cloudy conditions. temperatures this morning 56. santa rosa 52, as well. livermore 54. a few areas noticing a little bit of a break in the clouds but over sfo, west winds at 8 miles per hour, pushing that marine layer across the bay. we are going to see a change in the weather pattern here by the end of the week as a ridge of high pressure arrives but there's a low sitting right over us. and that's basically what's causing those cooler conditions. across the sierra and to the north of us, that is just associated with that low. our hi-def doppler showing now just some areas of some rain but it's not in the bay area. look at this, no lightning strikes just now popped up moments ago across the sierra foothills so that's where most of the precipitation will be. afternoon thunderstorms in the forecast there for today, tomorrow and next few days as
their weather pattern stays the same. it's overall unstable. futurecast cloudy, no rain. it's not looking like you will see precipitation. 4:00 this afternoon, more of that instability starts to increase as we get a little bit of the warming of the day. and that's when we could see possibly in the north bay some scattered showers. but it looks like sacramento, mendocino, ukiah, that area is going to get a lot of lightning strikes yet again. awarmer through the weekend. so that's going to keep us warmer with the ridge closer to us for the weekend.
cloudy conditions and moisture in the clouds but that's the main story for today. a few degrees below average for the coastline and around the bay but inland, you're about 6 to 8 degrees below average, upper 60s instead of the mid- to upper 70s. you today not so warm in the 60s. so you want a jacket and sweater later on. 65 in petaluma. let's hop over to the seven- day forecast. you can see that warmer weather. when will the sunshine get here? here it is for friday and saturday, sunny, inland, around the bay, coastal conditions consistent with cloudy in the temperatures in the upper 50s for the next seven days and dropping off on monday, tuesday. cold conditions and then rain back in our forecast. that's a look at your forecast. time now 5:50. bay area police hope that crystal clear surveillance video will lead to a quick
