coming way down. and with so much low cloud deck in place it won't take longer to cool off. so that means the low clouds in place. even moving locally inland that equals a cooler, breezy to windy for some. upper 80s now. 60s and 70s and 80s for most. all right sal i delivered on the weather. there you go. all right. now i can give you good traffic now if you are driving around the bay area. this is a good look at what we have looking at the commute. there are no major problems between the carquinez bridge and the mccarthur maze. if you get to the toll plaza, a little bit of slowing. but the fast track lanes are moving very well. and as we look at the east bay, traffic is looking good on 80 but also on 680 from concord to
walnut creek. on highway 4 and even on highway 37 as you drive through. i just want to move it down to the south bay here and traffic is moving along very nicely on northbound 101. now let's go back to the desk. we continue to follow developing news out of the south bay. a police investigation is under way after a second deadly officer involved shooting in less than 24 hours. ktvu janine de la vega is at the scene of the latest shooting. janine, it sounds like both people shot by police were suspects in the same homicide investigation. >> reporter: yes. that is right, pam. and we are here in a neighborhood just off of monterey highway. it has been an intense 24 hours for police. they have been collecting evidence here right now. crime scene cleaners are here at the scene. and this latest shooting has left the neighborhood shaken. the latest one happened just before 7:00 last night on kirk haven court. police say they started following the man when he
