6:17 am
cupertino makes it up to 79 degrees. 82 in milpitas. it will feel like summer again, but this will be the peak of our warmest temperatures and our cooldown will be very slight. we're looking at a high of 82 in livermore. 76 in oakland. 77 in san mateo. san francisco, mostly low 70s today with gusty westerly winds. for the north bay, a lot of mid-80s there. we are going to still have the same weather pattern not changing. this high pressure is not moving. as we see the winds circulating around the high pressure, giving us an offshore wind flow, at we've seen high clouds mix in, we'll see more of the same as we go through the day but no rain. how was your halloween? mine was pretty good, but the struggle is real. i'm @karihallweather. just trying to take pictures of my kids. i have to admit, i'm a little jealous. everyone got their kids to look at the camera and smile for those halloween pictures.
6:18 am
as we recover this morning, we'll be in the mid-80s. more of that very warm weather. we set our clocks back one hour on sunday morning. we still have some 80s in the forecast inland while san francisco stays in the 60s. heading over to vianey, how's it looking out there, especially through milpitas? >> it's going okay but, kari, as far as the kids not looking at the camera, i'll blame the candy and excitement on that. now, the bay area we have noticed a couple more accidents popping up. let's get right to that milpitas crash i was talking about because i have noticed slowing on southbound mission boulevard. that right-hand lane is blocked. that will create a hazard as people slow down. be careful on the roads. another crash along westbound 237 at lawrence expressway right here. it looks like the slow lane is blocked. i haven't seen any heavy delays through that area so it could be that traffic is starting to built through there.
6:19 am
one thing i have definitely noticed is the building traffic along the san mateo bridge. now, chp hasn't reported any crashes on the san mateo bridge, but look at the drive times. your bridge drive times are the slowest from westbound 92 heading towards the san mateo bridge at 46 minutes. of course, the metering lights are on at the bay bridge. it just changed right there from westbound 80 towards the bay bridge, about 19 minutes. a heavy commute for the bridges. back to you. 6:19 right now. coming up next on "today in the bay" -- burning out. california's legal marijuana sales not off to a great start. what the government is doing to make sure people can get the pot they want. a seven-figure shortfall in their insurance policy. nbc bay area responds next. first, nbc's bob redell is throwing it back for us on this thursday. check out this video.

6:35 am
he'll keep that tradition of giants baseball living forever. another tweet by jesse jackson calling mccovey one of the greatest baseball players of all time. and this last tweet, this is from bill russell, the boston celtics legend and native of the bay area, expressing his sadness over the passing of a dear friend. like many of us, he's sharing his thoughts and prayers with the family of willie mccovey. as far as mccovey's career, one heck of a career. he was the rookie of the year in 1959. then went on to become the mvp in 1969. and, of course, he hit more than 500 career home runs. nbc bay area did interview him about a month ago and he talked about his deep connection to the city of san francisco. >> just a great city. i just felt in love with san francisco right off the bat. so, i didn't want to live anywhere else. and i didn't. everybody was nice.
