and tomorrow evening the 680 corridor and 880 corridor will fill up. towards the weekend potentially wetter weather as a low pressure area passes to our west and our south definitely rainfall up toward tahoe and the sierra, scattered showers possible around here, so heatwave is absolutely finished. 83 tomorrow for livermore, 80 in san jose, 77 for vallejo but 68 with a foggy start in oakland and san francisco will go from 82 to 63 degrees. even cooler friday, 70 inland, that's it. we go cooler than that? yeah. saturday and sunday 50s and 60s for highs. hello, winter, a few scattered showers, nothing significant, but once we get cool, which is happening right now, we will stay cool for at least a week. the pendulum is swinging back to the chilly stuff. >> we're used to it. thanks, paul. pretty incredible, everyone got out of this plane alive. got out of this plane alive. tonight a spectacular crash ,,,,
