well, so much for the new bay bridge making for a quicker commute which it was never designed to do. the whole redesign was for seismic safety and it's one of the reasons why traffic is just moving at a snail's pace on the bridge. the biggest complaint, heavy rush hour traffic. but it might be more about the economy than the bridge itself. from july of 2012 to july of 2013, the bay area added about 100,000 jobs. and more jobs means more commuters. >> not only in san francisco but also in the north bay, in the east bay, on the peninsula, this is regionwide and it's a good problem to have. >> caltrans says every bridge in the bay area is now carrying more cars than they were this time last year because more people are working. san francisco international, bart and bay area highways are all seeing record traffic. >> and we're seeing some traffic this morning. let's get right to liz with the roads. >> thanks, guys. yeah, we have been watching this breaking news in san

this morning. but that could change very quickly. the usual brake lights on 205 and the latest drive time 19 minutes between the wind turbines and 680 and the dublin interchange. here's lawrence with the forecast. >> beautiful summer sunshine the last couple of days and now clouds moving in and a cold front is headed our way could see a couple of raindrops but not just yet. temperatures in the 40s in the north bay valleys. this afternoon much cooler 70s and low 80s well inland. increasing clouds throughout the day today. 60s at the coastline and breezy too. you can see why this cold front headed toward the bay area not the strongest system we have ever seen but pretty impressive for this time of year to roll through. looks like a chance of showers later on this evening and then overnight tonight and into saturday maybe even an isolated
5:49 am
thunderstorm. so things staying unsettled. computer models picking that up. the fog and low clouds to begin with early on today. and they will be on the increase with more mid- to high- level clouds too and then you will see the cold front by about 7:00 in the evening start to show up in the north bay and then overnight tonight starts to spread to the south kind of falling apart as it goes on through but leaving a chance of some scattered showers. so don't be surprised if you actually hear rain out there. temperature-wise, we'll see some 70s and maybe some low 80s well inland, 60s at the coastline. the forecast for the weekend unsettled into the first part of the weekend. by sunday the first day of fall, a return to some dry weather with some partly cloudy skies. and then looks like we'll see some cooler temperatures toward the middle of the next week. time to get up and get ready for school. getting up yet? the not yet. their parents aren't pleasanton middle school in pleasanton. sunshine and passing clouds. lunch. time more clouds. temperatures in the 70s. and maybe some upper 70s by the

environment in california is colder, more influenced by water coming down from the gulf of alaska. it's typically high in nutrients and that makes for productive times here. >> the whales will likely start going south to mexico in november. clever dog has found a way to keep from being locked up. >> the dog's name is bandit and like any good bandit it's looking for a way out. its owner set up a laptop to find out how bandit escaped from the kitchen. he climbed over. away he goes!
