6:17 am
extreme where nothing is happening. that's the pattern we've got. it will be cloudy but we will see daytime highs that climb to the low 60s again without even the hint of a threat of rain. i will show you why high def doppler is picking up on a little bit of rain off the coast. your live look from the top of the mark hopkins hotel towards the east. clear skies. i don't have any major issues with fog. for a time the oakland airport was reporting mildly reduced visibility but it is not widespread or an issue. at this point it is almost down right warm. it is 49 in hayward, 47 in san jose, 48 oakland. these temperatures are pretty warm for this time of day. santa rosa you are down to 36 and petaluma. livermore and concord are in the low 40s. in the immediate bay it feels pretty good. air quality will stay moderate. we've got the clouds and we've also got the haze, like that
6:18 am
layer cake of stuff. daytime highs will go to the low 60s. we can track the progression of the clouds. little bit of rain off the coast, that's the 10:00 hour. it does not really pose a threat of getting to the mainland. it doesn't get to the bay area. what we do notice are the clouds. those reverse direction tonight. tuesday we will have blue sky. we'll wake up to a little bit fog but in general we will have blue sky. you see the rain right there. let's put it on a wider view. the reason there is rain, you have to look at this in a unique way when you put it into water vapor, now you see it. an area of low pressure lurking off of the coast. that's why we've had clouds consistently. it's mainly from that one. that one leaves tomorrow. so we clear it out. the sky will look different. it will look better. we'll start to warm up a bit by the end of the week. it's not like storm track in
6:19 am
the pacific comes back. as that cut off low leaves it leaves us with more uneventful weather. relatively sunny and a subtle warm up into the end of the week. gianna, hour does the drive look this morning? it actually looks pretty good if you have to get up early and you are getting ready to head out, you don't have major issues or brake lights. bay bridge toll plaza, metering lights are off and we are not seeing a lot of cars. it's moving nicely into san francisco. a couple things to keep in mind. there are changes to public transit, saturday schedule for bart and also cal train will be on a modified schedule. ace rail will be on a modified schedule due to observance of martin luther king jr day which means less people are on the roadways because they may have

interesting. high def doppler sees it now. there are showers off the coast west of monterey and the reason for that, you don't see it when you look at the regular satellite but when you look at the water vapor, it becomes apparent. there is an area of low pressure. one of the pesky cut off lows not connected to the rest of the storm track. no jet stream tie in. there is nothing to move it along. that's been sitting off the coast of southern california for the last week. that's why it's been so cloud eye. that has been throwing clouds pretty consistently. now that it's drifted further north off the coast of monterey, we get one more day of clouds, maybe even a sprinkle in the water. tomorrow it gets pushed out. that's why we are finally going to get blue sky. we stay that way for the rest of the seven-day forecast. there is nothing else significant that looks like it would do anything other than keep us out of the main storm track in the pacific and sunny skies. we'll see daytime highs that will climb to the mid and upper
