7:14 pm
. >> the alabama corrections officer used of helping in a jailbreak now has a warrant for her arrest. it is believed she helped an accused murderer?. vicki white was part of the detention center, so no one questioned her when she led the inmate away from the facility. and ryan, authorities now say she had a, quote, special relationship with that and made but they did not elaborate. it looks like the bus rapid transit lanes are working. that project brought new separate lanes for community buses headed up and down venice print. buses are about 30% faster. and riders we talked to say they love it. >> the buses have to stop for the light, but they don't get tied up in traffic so they are just going smoothly up and down , and it is much faster. and the ride is smoother.
7:15 pm
>> it matters because if you're trying to take the kids to school in the morning before this without traffic, it was hit or miss. >> ridership -- 10 to 15% since those lanes opened about a month ago. let's give you a live look outside in oakland. >> it was an hd day. it was so pretty. crystal clear. meteorologist paul heggen is here. we're going to get more of these days? >> you. it's just going to get a little bit warmer. high pressure in control of our weather, which is why we have warmed up. but the position of the atmosphere is important. where it is located means that the offshore winds to kick in a little while today but because it is a little further off the coast, the onshore wind took over along the afternoon. this was directly overhead. we would see those offshore winds being able to dominate throughout the day or just not
7:16 pm
even being much of a factor at all. mostly calm winds with that very high pressure if it was very directly overhead where that is going to be the trick in figuring out tomorrow's temperatures. when does that onshore wind return in 3:00 in the afternoon, which gives areas around the coast and -- time to warm up a little bit. right now, the wind is part of the problem. it is that onshore direction, but it does not strong enough to push that direction into the valleys. temperatures are still mild. blue skies up ahead right now. you can see the flags standing up ahead. not straight out. around the bay, low to mid 60s. farther inland, still in the middle portion of the 70s. and that is above normal for this time of year. temperatures are going to drop down to around 50 degrees. we will see dense fog trying to make its way into some of the inland valleys. this is going to be a pretty shallow layer of fog. it might take a little bit longer to clear up right along the coast, but it should happen.
7:17 pm
your temperatures will warm up to the low 60s along the coast. we start off near 50 degrees. that is normal for this time of year. that hour by hour trend just depends on how the onshore breeze to behaves. the 70s in oakland. upper 50s in the coast. near 80 degrees for the warm response farther inland. high temperatures along the coast. occurring at about 1:00 in the afternoon. temperatures will back off as we had farther into the afternoon. about 2:00 is when we will reach highs for san francisco and oakland. temperatures still warming up farther inland. 90 degrees for fairfield, antioch and brentwood. low to mid 80s in the north bay. mid-80s in santa clara valley. notice the temperatures around the bay already dropping off. daytime highs because of that onshore breeze pushing the cooler air a little bit across the bay. our little warm spell comes to an end on thursday with more cloud cover overhead. there is even an outside chance that some of those clouds are
7:18 pm
going to squeeze showers into the north bay friday afternoon. it is a 20% chance. nothing to get excited about, but this parade of storm systems is going to be every other day with more clouds. slightly cooler temperatures. and a chance for a couple sprinklers north of the golden gate. the pollen count is going to continue to climb. into the medium high category by thursday and friday and skyhigh by the first half of the week. be ready for that. temperatures aren't going to drop off significantly from wednesday to thursday. of five to 10 degrees drop across the bay area. it looks like mother's day on sunday is going to be the coolest day in the seven-day forecast with inland temperatures struggling to get above 70 degrees. mix of clouds with that. friday, then again on sunday. maybe a chance by tuesday of next week, but that is way down the line. we will keep looking for those rain chance is even though in
7:19 pm
the month of may there tends to be a lot of promise and very little delivery on that promise. >> it is still optimistic and nice to some showers. >> we are trying to be optimistic. >> do not miss mother's day. >> oh, no. i will remind you. coming up next, special teachers getting some much deserved recognition. coming up on our streaming service, cbs news bay area, we take an in-depth look at potential fallout of eventually overturning roe v wade with a san jose state political science professor, donna crane. you can watch our stream wherever and whenever. find us on pluto tv, channel 1021, and any platform using the free cbs news app . ♪
