5:15 am
colder yesterday, some areas only 50 because of the fog. looking forward to some warmer weather today. you can look from ballmer peak this morning. you can see downtown san francisco. you can see the bay bridge, areas you could not see from the same vantage point yesterday. but there still is a lot of fog out there and very dense when you run into it. just because we're showing you one area that does not have it doesn't mean you won't run into some during your morning commute. it's mild this morning, mid to upper 40s, close to seasonal averages. 57 half moon bay. that's a little out of the ordinary. 53 monterey, same thing. otherwise low to mid-40s from salinas, watsonville, fog there. our first highlight, it fades faster today and that means warmer afternoons. it will be cooler tonight because we'll have less fog and the dry forecast hangs around all the way through the end which would -- today's tuesday so it would be next monday. it looks like the warmest
5:16 am
weather thursday and friday. we'll have a bit of a roller-coaster temperaturewise as dry cold front roll through. one degree warmer in san francisco, 2 santa rosa along with oakland. san jose 6 and look at that, concord 12 degrees warmer today. 9 hours 54 minutes and 54 seconds of sunshine. that's about one minute and 28 seconds more than yesterday. low to mid-60s. not only 65 san jose but also los gatos. over the peninsula hazy sunshine once again and no spare the air by the way. didn't get extended. low to mid-60s here, too. upper 50s to low 60s along the coast. downtown south san francisco low to mid-60s. low to mid-60s through the north bay valleys. warmer santa rosa, ukiah, cloverdale, upper 60s to low 70s and slightly cooler at your beaches, upper 50s. east bay shore, how about low to mid-60s for you. out of the 50s everywhere in the east bay valleys. low to mid-60s here with concord 65, danville 66 along with
5:17 am
livermore, some of the warmer spots. antioch and brentwood 60 degrees. 60 caramel, 62 here in monterey. mid to upper 60s the rest of the monterey bay and also your inland valleys. a little cooler with low 40s inland, around the bay shore and out to the coast. looking at the jet stream. a little kink developing up here that's going to bring a cold front in. but because it's at the top of this ridge, it spent all its energy climbing there and these why the dry pattern will continue even with that cold front coming through. it stirs up the atmosphere. the breezes tomorrow keep the fog from forming and also drop our temperatures a few degrees in the afternoon. when the high pressure comes back, it calms our sky and we'll have warmer weather for thursday and friday and dry all the way through monday. good morning, frances. >> good morning, mike. some of our foggiest camera shots around the bay area. 101 millbrae as you make your way northbound for these headlights. no major trouble though heading into san francisco.

5:30 am
some of them have been recorded and put on in october one night several fights broke out and police say they just don't have enough officers to handle the issue and that something's gotta give. so a committee has been studying the issue. they've been looking into the possibility of staggering the alcohol cutoff times and closing times for the bars and restaurants. of course, that raises the issue of fairness. some bars are saying why should some businesses be punished because others have had problems? police like the idea of staggering the closing time. they say it's tough when they all empty out at the same time. so quiet an issue to be debated here in walnut creek and expect it to heat up tonight when the committee makes its recommendations public at the city council meeting tonight at 7:00. amy holyfield, abc 7 news. >> amy, thank you. it's 5:30 now. oakland police have not made any arrests in four separate shootings, one fatal that all happened on the martin luther
