6:15 am
blocking two lanes. it's causing delays along 80 and 680. so this crash may actually be closer to along southbound 680. the backup is extending to westbound 80 there. so do expect slowdowns. speeds drop below 30 miles per hour as you approach the scene of the crash and look out for the emergency crews. get those guys some space. if you are heading through the south bay, northbound 101 slow from 280 to 880. travel speeds are dropping below 45 miles per hour. "slow, stop, go" on the san mateo bridge heading westbound. those taillights making their way out of hayward over to foster city. 21-minute ride. now, we don't have a lot of reports of any accidents, which is excellent news in the traffic world. we'll take that any day. but we're definitely seeing a few more folks joining the wednesday morning commute. speeds in the green for drivers heading along 880 making your way through oakland. but it's starting to get crowded as you head in that
6:16 am
southbound direction into hayward. that is a check of your traffic. let's send it to roberta and get a check of the forecast. >> good morning, everybody. rise and shine! it's live hi-def doppler radar picking up a little bit of green on the screen, some virga where it evaporates before it hits the ground but just outside santa rosa light raindrops on the rooftops this morning. if we see any accumulation and precipitation this morning it will be there in the north bay. east bay, we have had this cell pushing out of the west hartley area making tracks towards antioch. we have a little bit of activity at discovery bay. sfo, one hour 24-minute delays on some arriving flights.

6:18 am
so after this precipitation that our computer models are suggesting could happen around lunch hour, we may start thursday with partly sunny conditions and then watch what happens. it clears out! going all the way past your thursday into friday into the weekend. right now, my computer models suggest no precipitation for two full weeks and that indicates that our rainy season is effectively going to end tomorrow. sunnier, warmer, drier albeit breezy to windy at times in the highest elevations. weather slated for the next several days and even weeks. your official sunrise this morning 6:12. not going to see it. sunset at 7:55 maybe a hint as clouds thin. today's temperatures where they should be average from the 60s at the beaches, 60s bayside, and peninsula. just shy of 70 in san jose. 66 napa.
