labor day weekend. kpix 5 reporter christin ayers is on treasure island to explain. >> reporter: hi, ann. this is yet another step in this saga. caltrans is sending this letter to the federal highway administration just yesterday asking them to review a backup plan that would allow the bridge to open on labor day. the plan is a temporary fix that would essentially stabilize the plan not far from where 32 bolts busted in march leaving the bridge seismically unsafe and keeping it from opening on september 3rd as planned. the plan would involve installing wedges called shims into the bridge's bearings to prevent the bearings from moving too much in case of an earthquake. >> based on the what the toll bridge program oversight committee said labor day is off the table. if this is a possibility, we want to really vet this extremely well and then if we do get that vetting and feel comfortable with it, then we'll look at a new date. >> reporter: you can hear that

6:47 pm
looking like over the next 24 hours. it will be clear then the low clouds move into the peninsula, pack in over the sunset district. but then look what happens by midday. they sweep back to the shoreline. we'll get a mostly sunny sunday out of it. temperatures that look close to what they should be, 71 in oakland tomorrow is right on par. livermore at 87. very close, as well. san jose 81 degrees a little cooler than average but not by much. down in the south bay tomorrow temperatures about 80 degrees for the most part. 83 for sunnyvale. 83 cupertino. then half moon bay is just 63 degrees and the same for pacifica. out in the east bay tomorrow mid 80s will do it. 87 pittsburg, 84 san ramon, 87 livermore, 85 for pleasanton. 70s for parts of sonoma and marin counties. 71 at mill valley. 78 san rafael at the civic center. and 79 up at rohnert park over the county line. 78 degrees for santa rosa
6:48 pm
tomorrow but look at ukiah. boy, you get up there, it gets hot up 101, 95 degrees and 91 at calcyville in clearlake. low clouds and fog along the shoreline. but then plenty of sunshine in the afternoon, temperatures will be in the 80s inland to start out with tomorrow. then we'll cool down between now and tuesday but toward the end of the week, 90 again inland. so a little up, a little down, and temperatures around the bay in the 70s for the most part. very nice sunday on tap. make your plans now. looks thank you. g force, gary gelfand in the house tonight. >> thanks. >> good to see just thanks for the name. wow. >> i didn't come up with it. i took it from allen martin. >> exactly. >> he said that, didn't it's sports time. just right around the corner round 3 of the senior u.s. open. and a bay area soccer player continues to shine on the national stage. also, you have to meet one of the newest members of the warriors. vern sits down with nine-year vet andre iguodala coming up in sports. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
