6:46 am
propane. the rear is the one that turned over. why? i asked, they still don't know. chp is investigating but tell me at this point they are not too concerned about health effects or explosions. the guests at the inn got a rude awakening. >> we made some precautionary adjacent to the incident.z we don't have health or flammability hazards we're concerned about and in affecting the citizens at this point but it's a precautionary measure so we can work safely around the incident. >> reporter: maybe about 20 minutes ago a second truck came in to siphon the gas out. we are told this will take several hours to complete and clear the scene. the carlson on and off ramps are closed eastbound, the freeway is open but i spoke with the fire chief and he says this is one of the main thoroughfares so certainly an area you'll want to

avoid this morning. christie smith, "today in the bay." >> meteorologist christina loren is here to sprinkle sunshine on us for the day. >> and then showers later this week. so a little something for everybody. good morning to you, the time 6:47. we do have a beautiful day. let the spoiling continue in the bay area. we're getting the gorgeous sunrise shots. this high atop san bruno mountain. we don't have fog even through daily city. that bodes well for a sunny start to the day. the fog will roll back in as we head throughout tonight and tomorrow expecting a widespread deck of low clouds. it's chilly to start. you can slice the bay area in half. below that plenty of mid-50s. temperatures are going to be comfortable, cooler by 4 to 8 degrees. we head there tomorrow a cooler
6:48 am
day on tap. and then wednesday that's when we expect light showers. the chance is looking 20% to 30% but it did improve the chance for showers over the weekend. so we're looking pretty good even in the south bay for light sprinkles as we head through wednesday. we'll see a cooler day with temperatures tumbling into the low 70s. so here is what we're watching for you this morning. big front moving into the northeast, detroit, right in the middle of where we're expecting this next batch of rain. now, this is what i'm expecting because they are used to having rain showers in detroit. so comerica park today, 10:00 a.m. our time is looking good. we'll see light showers at this point though everything i looked at leads me to believe the game will start on time. we could see a 15, 20-minute delay. not expecting anything heavy. the wind the bigger factor carrying the ball out toward the third-base line. so it's going to be pretty active outkz there weather wi and our a's and probably the
