planner. we're starting off in the 40s in our deepest valleys, low to mid 50s elsewhere. that will reverse by noon. we'll mix in a few high clouds and sunshine like we did yesterday. look at the temperatures at noon. it's kind of chilly out there, mid 50s to only mid 60s with the breezes kicking up. look what it does to our afternoon temperatures, keeps us in the upper 50s to barely upper 60s. so summer is absent from this forecast. i have a brewing heat wave that could push us over 100 in the next several days. >> we are looking good so far today. looking good at the bay bridge toll plaza, stackup in the cash lanes, no surprise here. this seems to happen every morning now. until they get a few more of those open, we'll see this and the same thing will fill in on the right side of the toll plaza, too. fast track lanes are looking good so far this morning. drive times, westbound 580 tracy to dublin not too variable, 39
minutes. southbound 101, san rafael to san francisco looking great in the green at 17 minutes. let's get now to those major new developments overnight in the san francisco race for mayor. mark leno surging ahead of london brie den. let's take a look at the results we have. you see they are neck and neck, 50% and 50%. actually they're looking like 2,000 votes making the difference. 100% of precincts reporting. so a major change in what we were seeing late last night with leno surging ahead. rank choice voting dramatically changing the results while you were sleeping. let's go to abc 7 news reporter cornell barnard live to explain all this. >> reporter: good morning, jessica. super interesting development here. the votes still being counted and it could be days or weeks before we know the winner, but london breed's early lead appears to be fading as former
state senator mark leno taking the lead for now. redistribution of losing candidates' votes enabled leno to take the lead. rank choice voting allows voters to choose their top three favorites. candidates with the least votes are eliminated in rounds until there is a winner. leno and candidate jane kim teamed up n couraging each other's supporters to list each other as second choice on the ballot. that strategy appears to be paying off. leno has received more than 70% of kim's second place votes. >> i did give my second vote to jane, and i think she gave her second vote to me because we both agree that it is time for fundamental change for a new direction at city hall to address the crises that we've already discussed. we've got to shake things up a little bit. the status quo isn't working. >> reporter: of course, way too early to call this race.
whoever wins would make history. leno would be the city's first openly gay would be the city's first african-american american mayor. this race is getting very interesting. >> mark leno being in the lead because of rank choice voting right now, really neck and neck. we'll explain houp that works coming up later in this next half hour. meanwhile in san jose, sam liccardo is expected to remain mayor. comfortably leading steve brown, 74% to 15% with 56% of precincts reporting. last night lick car dough thanking everyone for their unwavering support. senator dianne feinstein easily advanced to the november ballot. the u.s. senate race is the most crowded on the ballot with 32 candidates. the we is who she's going to face. let's take a look at the results
