6:19 am
elevations above 1,000 feet, it is just so critically dry, and the humidity will be going down to anywhere from 8% to 18% in some spots, and the winds could gust up to 60 miles per hour. we have to be really careful during this time because any small sparks or fires could spread rapidly, especially as we look at our wind forecast, and seeing those winds at 8:30 tonight. still light, but picking up during the overnight hours, especially for parts of the central valley, and then headed into the north bay hills. sustained winds will be at 22 miles per hour later on tonight, and then we are going to see still some very warm weather. we set our clock back one hour on sunday morning, or saturday night before you go to sleep, and still some highs in the low 80s for the next several days. now mike, you're tracking the changes over the last few minutes. >> we've had some dramatic changes, because kari, and folks, we remember this is friday, with the lighter volume of traffic at 6:19, yes, even at 6:19 most of our sensors are green or yellow, that's not bad

6:31 am
san jose, and as you make your way out to diridon station and our temperature trend for san jo jose, we'll be in the mid-50s the next couple of hours but warming up today. it will be another summer-like afternoon. san jose's record high temperature for today is 85. i'm expecting it to get up to at least 83 degrees and we'll see some mid 80s for our inland valleys, some low 70s for the coast. we'll be tracking our summer-like weather into the weekend, coming up, and mike, you're tracking the morning commute. so far, a few minor issues. >> they created a backup which was unexpected kari, for a friday. quick recovery, also though we finally have the backup here out of oakland. this is about 45 minutes later than we typically see this on a monday through thursday. that's indicating the lighter volume. the metering lights are on at the bay bridge toll plaza. gentle slowing of course through san pablo, about a half hour from highway 4 down to the berkeley curve and the backup i just showed you. no other issues. mild slowing for contra costa
6:32 am
count county. south 880 a little slow through hayward. the build across the san mateo bridge as well, there you see more tail lights but no brake lights, so we have still a smooth flow. back to you. >> thank you very much. we continue with the breaking news that we're following, a swarm of earthquakes this morning in the salinas area in san benito county. here you look at the seismograph, the largest so far was that 4.0 that they had there, striking at about 5:58, and another one was a 3.8. over the next several minutes, four more quakes followed, as i told you, it was a total of five. the last one just minutes ago. this ran along the san andreas fault, runs up and down california, including san jose and the peninsula. i sent out a tweet after to see if there was activity in the south bay. the only one that was really reported was over in the carmel area, so it sounds like it kind of went south that way instead
6:33 am

6:34 am
according to "the merkley news" this is at least the second time 49ers cheerleaders have knelt during the anthem. the paper reports that two members of the gold rush squad knelt here at levi's during a christmas eve game last year against jacksonville to join in the protest against police brutality and racial inequality that former 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick started during the 2016 season. last week nfl cheerleaders asked why they hadn't been taking a knee, their response, lack of support and the fear of losing their position on their respective squads. as you can imagine, the response on social media to this cheerleader's protest last night has ranged from praise to anger. there was some anger in the stands last night's game, niners and raiders fans duking it out during a pretty big brawl in the stands. no injuries.
6:35 am
