as we're venturing out there, we've got some low gray sitting right over the east bay here. that's been pretty par for the course of the past week. we've been seeing this low great filtering in more and more during your morning hours. that's actually been bringing a lot of the relief we've been enjoying towards the afternoon, though, as our daytime highs of steadily gotten cooler and cooler each and every day, very compressed marine layer at the coastline, though that is resulting in some very dense fog right up and down the coast as well. some drizzle in misty conditions watch out for a few wet spots, especially along highway one and even one 0 one as well as we move into the afternoon, less and less of the great trading it for some sunshine and enjoy a full sunshine as temperatures won't be quite as hot 50's and 60's for our current temps conquered hayward in pittsburgh, each at 61. alameda right at 60 degrees. while dublin, san mateo and san francisco in the upper 50's. a look ahead next. few days are going to only get cooler and cooler today. our first day with inland highs only averaging out in the upper 80's. believe it or not.
4:31 am
we've been in the 90's and triple digits for a while. so this is truly some relief. more on your forecast is still ahead. let's get a quick look at those bridges, the bay bridge. first of all, metering lights not on. so you're rolling smoothly through the toll plaza. the san mateo bridge also a okay. you're going along just fine there across the span and a look at the richmond, sandra fell bridge. things are also looking good. you know that it will get busier. and once rain arrives at 05:00am should be keeping an eye on that. for 31 now. and we're getting a better idea of how san francisco's new district attorney plans to run her office wednesday. brooke jenkins released a new policy on cash bail in detention. kron four's dan kerman takes a close look. san francisco district attorney brooke jenkins says except in limited misdemeanor cases. >> she has no plans to have her. prosecutors see cash bail the disproportionate impacts that cash bail had on mainly communities of color. it, you know, it's people who are
4:32 am
socially economically disadvantaged course, which oftentimes correlates with communities of color. and that's something that i did not >> want to ever reinstate for that reason. but jenkins is modifying the office's policies when it comes to asking judges to detain defendants without bail prior to trial. i want to make sure that as a policy we are prioritizing public safety in our in our analysis and our thought process. for example, detention requests may be made for repeat offenders, selling large quantities of fentanyl as well as those involved in violence. anyone who's committing a violent crime in san francisco certainly is a situation where we will be considering filing a pretrial detention motion like i said, people who have been given less restrictive opportunities to be out in the public while their cases are pending. but who have continued to violate those are are people who we will have to conduct that analysis with people who prior violent crime in their history. that's something that we also should be taking into account in assessing the risk that they pose to the public.
4:33 am
jenkins predecessor, be. dean also instituted a risk based process for requesting no bail detention. but jenkins said the analysis was flawed putting too many chronic and violent offenders back on the street pending trial. the prior simply had a focus on eliminating cash bail, but not making a lawyer's conduct. the analysis correctly on whether or not someone posed a public safety risk such that we needed to take a different course with that person. but in a statement, san francisco's public defender says jenkins characterization of this new policy as limited is disingenuous as the stated policy is both broad and vague. already we have a number of misdemeanor attorneys who each have a handful of cases where the prosecutors sought pretrial detention most concerning da jenkins policy will increase the number of people caged prior to trial. dan kerman kron. 4 news on to a growing
