>> it does. let's check traffic this morning. how's it looking out there. >> you know, we've had some good and bad stuff happening this morning. we've had a handful of accidents that have cleared pretty quickly. as you work your way along the 101 northbound. a vehicle may have gone off the roadway and possibly into the water there. they've got a lot of activity on the scene there. not effecting the main lines of the freeway too much. you can see traffic is in the green there according to our sensors. so very light conditions as you work your way through there. here's a live look at 101 near candle stick. we're not seeing any delays. let's jump over to the nimmets freeway. northbound if you're headed out of oakland. southbound you're cleared through here. 14 minutes. if here we do have an accident near 80th
street and look at this. no metering lights. so really easy ride. you're going to take the bay bridge. you are clear all the way into san francisco. jumping over to 880. two car crash. fender bender here. lanes are blocked. so 238 down to 84. that's a 17-minute drive time. shouldn't effect your drive if you're hopping onto the san mateo bridge. well today, the last day of unhealthy air. so some good news for you this morning. now currently we're looking at smokey skies. unhealthy to start off the day with that air quality. but again, as we head through tomorrow, big changes ahead. i'll show you that in just a moment. right now an aqi value of 1702. 154 san leandro. san jose 151. for an aqi value a little bit better in redwood city at 93.

campfire there. but the pattern is going to flip. high pressure has been the dominant weather feature for the last month and a half. it kicks on out of here. a low pressure system moves in and that will swing a cold front our way for tomorrow and that will bring the rain. future cast you can see the clouds beginning to move in and that's really an indication of our changing winds. so that's why with we're looking at our better air quality as we go through later on today by this evening and here we are at 8:00 p.m. and we are going to see improving air quality. here comes the rain at 8:00 a.m. for tomorrow and we could see. so rain off and on and also the possibility in the afternoon of an isolated thunderstorm. so brief heavy downpours are possible as the actual front pushes through and looking at a bit of a break for thursday for thanks giving. so rainfall amounts looking at anywhere from 1.5" and up to 1/2" of rain for the south bay.
but speaking of the camp fire they could see 1.5" to 3" of rain by friday. which is why a flash flood watch is in effect for the butte county. all of the wild fires that have burned over the summer. under that flash flood watch. sunrise at 6:55 and 4:55 for sunset there. so a rainy wednesday. catching a bit of a break for thanksgiving. could see lingering showers there and our next weather system late thursday into friday. thank you. 5:50 happening today yosemite national park will be closing two roads. the roads are expected to be closed through thanksgiving weekend. glacier point road will also close. these storms are expected to dump at least a foot of snow and officials say visitors are required to carry tire chains.
