6:19 pm
discounts. right now early bird parkers pay $15 at the garage. that would go up to $35 a day if the early bird rate is prohibited. and the current $300 a month rate would jump to $1,050. the enforcement would raise an estimated $6 million a year for the cash-strapped agency. all right. let's take you outside. a live look right now at the bay bridge toll plaza. it's a spare the air day, the fourth this season. that means there's a ban on burning wood fires tonight. wood smoke, the largest source of winter air pollution here in the bay area. harmful pollutants can impact cancer rates in adults and make it hard for people with asthma, especially little people, to breathe. so beware, because fines for violating spare their guidelines can cost you 400 bucks. >> that's a lot of money. all right. let's take our first look at the weather this evening. jeff ranieri is standing by. and temperatures today rebounded nicely out here after

we did start off with that dense fog for a lot of the bay area this morning. we popped up to 62 in redwood city, 64 in livermore and temperatures in the upper 50s and low sixty throughout the south bay. however, that fog is already starting to reform. look at this. right now just in the past half hour, novato, visibility down to a quarter of a mile and less. it's decreased about two miles here from the last check in our 5:00 show. as we take a look right now, you'll see the dense fog advisory covers a good section of northern california. what you should know here is most of the viewing area is now under this dense fog advisory. this remains here for the north bay where visibilities will be at a quarter mile and less, also back here for all of our east bay communities where visibilities could go down to less than a tenth of a mile, and that is also the case here for the south bay, right up the peninsula into san francisco. so by all means, for tomorrow morning you're certainly going to want to plan in some extra time as you, well, plan to get
6:21 pm
to work, to school, or wherever, because it certainly can be very dangerous out there. mid to upper 50s right now. not too bad when it comes to temperatures out there. we have this high pressure region sitting just offshore. that's what's clearing it out and keeping that air kind of stagnant across the bay area, real reminiscent of an early fall type pattern, kind of unusual for its overall strength for this time of the year. we're not looking at rainfall here in the next 72 hours. those temperatures are going to start off in the mid to upper 40s out here with that dense fog and then we'll start to get that gradual sunshine in here throughout our tuesday, and we'll rebound in some low 60s here in the east and the south bay. the you're doing any traveling, watch out. more wet weather across the east, also some rain/snow mix, even up into chicago and minneapolis. coming up back here, we're going to be talking about where your worst commute will be for tomorrow when it comes to that fog. >> already, jeff. thank you very much. and ahead at 6:00 -- how eating your breakfast after your workout could help you lose weight. plus, what san francisco's

it's an old facility built by the united states before iran's 1979 islamic revolution. this is a main cooling pool. the actual core of the reactor where the fuel rods are kept is about 25 feet below the surface. the facility appears clean and well maintained. it is very unusual for iran to allow anyone to tour its nuclear facilities, let alone take television cameras inside. the people here seem uncomfortable that we're here. we haven't been able to talk to any scientist directly, and we're not allowed to take pictures of their faces. but earlier iran's chief nuclear negotiator told us the tehran reactor produces medical isot e isotopes. >> translator: an issue which is completely and solely humanitarian and more than 850,000 patients are using the medication. >> reporter: international officials don't dispute that the tehran research reactor produces medical isotopes. but they are deeply concerned

front of people. sometime that can come across as hostility or whatever. >> reporter: but on this night, the golden globes showed lots of love. in los angeles, mark barger, nbc news. >> some surprises last night. >> a pretty good show i thought. >> all right. and jeff ranieri always puts on a pretty good show for us, doesn't he. why, thank you. take a look here. got to live up to this expectation now. today we had temperatures there, the mid to upper 50s for parts of the north bay. that's where the fog still lingered around. temperatures were the coolest there. right down the peninsula into san jose, temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s. that's where we did get in on a good amount of sunshine. however, the fog is has already started to roll back in, dense fog advisory right now from the north bay down into the south bay where visibilities will be at a quarter mile and less here throughout the north bay. we'll also see the dense fog once again reforming here throughout the east bay. it's already starting to get patchy and dense in and throughout the east bay, especially through the hilltops. that's also going to be the case
6:46 pm
from the south bay from the peps la into san francisco. one of the most widespread dense fog advisories we have had here across the bay area in a while. let's get a look. the lowest numbers coming into us in the north bay, novato at a quarter mile and less so that highway 101 corridor from about the san francisco golden gate bridge, right up to santa rosa is going to be a sore spot tomorrow morning. otherwise, temperatures not so bad, mid to upper 50s right now as that fog is kind of capping things off today. so we're not going to see some overly cold temperatures tonight by any means. we'll start off with the fog. then we're going to get some gradual sunshine in here as we head throughout tuesday. that's the good part. you just have to wait for it till the midday and afternoon hours. then we have this unusual dry pattern that's going to stay in place. satellite loop shows that arcing in the cloud cover right there. that is a signature of high pressure sitting right at the surface offshore. and without that budging we'll see that fog for morning and that midday and afternoon sunshine as we head throughout the next two days.
6:47 pm
and temperatures in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees. now, we've been talking about this worst commute for tomorrow morning. it looks like right now in the north bay where visibles could be a tenth of a mile and less. once again, highway 101 from novato to santa rosa. that's where you want to watch out especially as you travel over those bridges and also throughout any hilltop location. otherwise, for the morning, east bay, low 40s and also that patchy dense fog and otherwise here 47 in santa cruz and temperatures in the mid to upper 40s throughout san francisco. as far as our highs go tomorrow, we'll see a slight northerly component to the wind. that'll help to scour out some of this fog and also return some sunshine. so that slow, foggy start with a nice, sunny finish. all right. 57 in concord. sounds kind of like a recipe there. 59 in napa and right up into the north bay looking at temperatures in the low to mid-60s. let's get a look at the seven-day forecast. there's that sunny finish for us
6:48 pm
as we head throughout wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday, and sunday, looking good, low 60s, and no rain in sight. just watch out for that fog tomorrow morning. now it's time for your sports. jeff, thank you. we have a busy evening, one of the worst kept secrets in america. considering the chronicle reported this hiring more than two weeks ago, but earlier this evening the raiders finally making it official, hue jackson is their new head coach. he will replace tom cable. if you want to be cynical, you can say here we go again. al davis has really run this franchise nearly to the ground in the past eight years. in fact, jackson will be the raiders' sixth head coach since their super bowl season back in '02. jackson's resume pretty solid. a longtime assistant coach, but this will be his first-ever head coaching position on any level. the 45-year-old has plenty of experience in the nfl and in college. in fact, in 1996 he worked for

6:52 pm
and then to get a win for the home crowd it's a great opportunity. >> reporter: all in all, it was another great mlk day full of many dreams come true and a warriors' win. take it from here. >> jessica valid, nbc bay area sports. >> jessica, you're a star. you are hired. tomorrow, though, back to school at northern lights elementary in oakland. sharks, big day, historical day for the sharks today. congratulations to patrick marleau arriving in san jose as a teenager in 1997. we've seen him grow up before our eyes. today, the first sharks player in history to reach 1,000 career games as a member of the sharks. wouldn't you know, the 31-year-old even scored a goal. he and dany heatley leading the charge this afternoon in phoenix beating the coyotes 4-2. finally tonight, the bling has arrived. the giants world series rings. they will be the most talked about diamonds in the bay yair. here's the exclusive first look. it's the prototype made by
