now. i'm beginning to see something that i haven't seen in the last few days. that is a little bit of improvement here on the bay bridge commute. if you were in the bay bridge commute, you had a tough day for sure. but today it seems to be a little bit better. if you're driving into the golden gate bridge, this is what i meant to do. golden gate bridge traffic is okay. but it is foggy here. the fog has not picked up. usually, you know, it is foggy at 4:00 in the morning when i get here. it is not foggy still at 8:18. but the traffic seems not to be affected. perfect transition to mark tamayo. mark, we were talking about this fog four hours ago. >> yeah. the visibility has been going down quite a bit. with the low clouds, breaks and low clouds, we had a beautiful sunrise this morning. look at the beautiful time lapse. this is from our san rafael camera looking to the north

8:20 am
we're going to warm up the numbers inland. coast remains on the cool side with the fog bank nearby. the temperatures only close to 60 degrees. here is the fog pattern this morning. and then gradually clearing back to the shoreline this afternoon. partly cloudy skies around the bay. probably leftover patches for portions of san francisco. inland, you will find upper 70s to around 80 degrees around 4:00 this afternoon. we will bump up the numbers a little bit inland. right around the bay, partly cloudy skies for oakland. 69. head inland and you will find upper 70s around 80. san jose 77. sunnyvale 74. san francisco 65. pacifica only 60 degrees. your five day forecast, temperatures warm up away from the coastline friday. by the weekend, saturday will be the warmest day. we will cool things off into sunday. and then another spike of the numbers into monday and tuesday. but i remember, you know, growing up, we grew up in the bay area.
