how this all breaks down today. the fog is going to eventually lift but yeah the dense fog advisory up until 11:00 in the morning in the north bay valleys so be very careful traveling not only there, all around the bay area seeing thick fog this morning. by the afternoon a mix of sun and fog at the coastline, temperatures at the beaches below average, but well above the average as high as 84 in livermore, cool 62 degrees in san francisco. let's check your "kcbs traffic" now with liza battalones. >> hi there, everybody. good morning to you. if you are heading for the bay bridge, there are delays now on the upper deck of the bay bridge because of a box truck which stalled out. it's blocking the left lane. this is westbound 80 just beyond treasure island. you can see right here, the toll plaza is free and clear. and the fog of course a major issue for many commutes this morning. if you are heading for the 580/680 commute, visibility is great and so far lots of room for that westbound 580 drive approaching 680. certainly foggy over at the golden gate where traffic speeds are fine. no major problems to report heading into san francisco.

the tracks on saturday afternoon. federal investigators took measurements on the tracks yesterday so they could try to figure out how fast the train was going when it hit these two men because the cars don't have recorders of that kind of information. the speed is necessary for today's reenactment so they did a lot of work on that and they also finished their inspections and noted no apparent defects with the train itself. but they have a possible clue. >> inspection and examination flat spots on some of the rear car wheels was noted. such flat spots may be the result of the application of brakes on the train prior to striking the two persons on the track. >> reporter: those two people were working under a procedure that was called simple approval. they have approval to go on the tracks but are apparently responsible for their own safety at that point.
