5:16 am
highway 12 in the southbound direction. there's delays building in both directions and chp has shut down the southbound direction of 160. so anyone trying to get into antioch or further is going to have to use another way. 680 or take 12 all the way over to 5 and then connect with 4 and head all the way back but that's going to be a big delay. i would just stay on 12 and connect with 680 or 80. right now, we are tracking a pretty smooth ride westbound 4. over along 580, we have the usual delays as you can see building along 205 and 580 heading through the altamont pass. 31 minutes for drivers towards 680. and we are seeing the big crowds already developing along 880 just south of 238. so as you make your way through san lorenzo, you will just be in good company heading on down into hayward. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, more and more folks lining up trying to get across that bridge. we are in the yellow. no metering lights just yet

5:18 am
it's going to stick around for a while this morning. a lot of times it doesn't show the cloud coverage that really does happen but through noon you'll see it along the coast. it will take a while to burn off and returning again tonight sticking around for your drive tomorrow morning. here's what's happening. we have this low to the north. and also a high pressure system down to the south so that ridge and the low together combine and it allows for those west winds to really get intense and all that's doing is bringing us the ocean air over to us. so that's why we are noticing a little drizzle and mist and why we are getting west winds. stronger in the east bay hills. napa 13-mile-per-hour winds. that picked up a little bit. overall by friday to saturday,
5:19 am
our wind will completely shift directions. we are going to start to get an offshore wind. a high wind watch friday evening into saturday morning so something to keep in mind. gusts up to 60 miles an hour possible for the north and east bay hills. so make plans. it will be warmer on friday into saturday. today though temperatures cool and pretty normal for where they should be around the bay. cooler than average for san jose and concord. here's the seven-day forecast. but he's probably not proud of it. ly bad perform trending now, a major league pitcher has set a new mlb record but he is probably not too proud of it. >> the historically bad performance for orioles starter dylan bundy who allowed four home runs in the 1st inning failing to get an
