8:19 am
as temperatures go today, it will be a little bit warmer than yesterday. you can think all that sunshine we're getting for that. daytime highs yesterday you remember we're only in the mid to upper 50's today, we're talking some 60's returning whether you're out along the coastline right along the bay or further inland. it's all a share of upper 50's to low 60's that were going to be looking at later on redwood city and san carlos each right at 60 degrees temperatures in the south bay in the upper 50's to low 60's. same for you in the east bay freemont at 59 dublin, right there too hayward through san leandro berkeley and richmond all in the low 60's temperatures in the north bay also upper 50's to low 60's. fairfield at 62 while 3 of our warmest spots youngsville santa rosa in petaluma all up to 63. this is your look ahead at the next 7 days after today, we're talking 50's again for most of our daytime highs. again our chances of rainfall will be tomorrow night during overnight hours kind of like what we saw couple days ago.

8:21 am
told people keep moving along we'll take a picture of your driver's license, your plate, the plate in your car and then send you an invoice in the mail and apparently has worked so well that they will continue doing the ad so you will never see another human being at the toll plaza as far as the boots. again reason being they like what's going on many people already have fast track. so if you have fast track your life's not going to change already have an account though just take money out of it and if you need to be replenished then they'll just do it from your credit card. >>if you don't have it well they'll send you that in boys and you just pay the exact amount $6 or $5 whatever time you cross say the bay bridge or the dumbarton bridge. not the golden gate bridge does because the state does not own the golden gate bridge. but they've already been doing. electronic taking anyways for years now so that's not going to impact the golden gate bridge but you will be impacted if you are hardheaded and you refused to pay. we're
8:22 am
told because the state wants every dollars so after 30 days and you don't pay it as far as the invoice it's $25 for every violation after 60 days at $75 and if you don't do it after that it comes time to renew your car your registration it could be suspended. this we said area because i love coming through here from time to time in the past and talking to the toll workers, some of them a crime for viewers and they say hi or what not and will never see that again and i can tell you doing this story before in the past even at the golden gate bridge, they hated the idea because it meant a loss of jobs. and that is true, but you know what as far as you say hi to the toll taker the guy behind you is happy that it's over like the moment >>say new york the case well. a to the time right now in the east bay people who are
