we have a bigger band of moisture off the coast and we're waiting to see if that will come onshore getting things going on and off with a few light showers throughout the day. the main area of low pressure off the coastline is sagging to the south. that's a big concern as far as rain is. if it sags too far to the south too fast it will hold this rain off the coast. we'll still see some of it come onshore but it will just be scattered showers around the bay area for today. numbers, yup, you bet. not too bad. temperatures warmer than they have been as we are seeing some cloud cover out there, as well. we have some 30s into santa rosa but you have 40s and 50s elsewhere along the coastline some good winds to go along with that. today highs are going to be cooler. 50s maybe some mid-60s in the warmest spots. and here's the good news. we are going to see a couple of showers for today. toward the weekend, partly cloudy into saturday, becoming mostly sunny on sunday. and should be dry throughout the weekend. then some warmer weather come monday and tuesday. starts to get a little unsettled, maybe we start talking rain toward the latter part of next week. that's a look at weather. let's check on traffic now with elizabeth. >> thank you, lawrence. we're not expecting a whole lot
