san mateo coast. same is true by the evening commute. we cloud back over from the third and final system on wednesday. the rain plays tag with the north bay and then by thursday high pressure begins to build back in and when that happens we are going to have sunny skies and warmer conditions all the way through next monday. so meanwhile rainfall amounts from today or tomorrow still very anemic under .10-inch of precipitation. our totals today in the 60s and low 70s. 71 degrees towards the delta. brisk westerly up to 20 miles per hour. there is that chance of a shower on wednesday. and look at the numbers as we head towards the weekend. so definitely some light at the end of the tunnel. jacqueline. good morning. right now emergency crews are on the scene of a crash we are tracking along westbound 80 just off the bay bridge and heading on to southbound 101. is did have one lane blocked. you can see that backup
