following the 2020 czu wildfire. flames tore through nearly all 18,000 acres of the park, now signs of new life, just about everywhere you look there, up high, where branches burned off, there are new sprouts and at the base of dead trees you can see new upshoots. flowers are blooming and so is the grass, even shrubs doubled in size and 97% of the old growth redwoods survived. >> the forest does its own thing. it doesn't care what humans do. >> 100%. this fire is just a great reminder that we have very little control over these things. the world has changed dramatically since then and so this is an opportunity to really redo the park in a way that meets today's needs and today's understanding of what the forests need. >> the park will partially reopen to visitors during the day after the fourth of july. federal lawmakers are working to pass legislation to help california brace for a hotter, longer and drier wildfire season.
two bills were just introduced, including the fire suppression improvement act. the legislation would allow federal emergency management agency to shoulder a larger share of the cost to fight and recover from wildfires. 5:47 is the time now. let's get a check of weather and traffic. >> we'll start with first alert meteorologist jessica burch. jessica, yesterday i took the pups to lime ridge. >> we're starting off with a live look just from the sutro cam. it is a beautiful friday morning for us headed into a holiday weekend. we are expecting below average temperatures to stick around. we'll start off with another live look from the salesforce tower cam looking off the bay bridge. a little bit of a marine layer this morning, high clouds, patchy fog pushing its way through no matter where you live in the bay. this afternoon things are changing. temperatures today ranging below average no matter where we live in the bay especially actually up in higher elevations closer to concord, a daytime high of 78 degrees today and as we head into the next couple hours, the
offshore flow will kick up, he extending into the weekend hours, bringing in all of the clouds we've been seeing not only today but yesterday for that matter. heading into this weekend, this will be very, very strong actually. we'll see a little bit of it pleading off by the noon hour as we warm up for our day heim highs. once we head into the evening, more high clouds and patchy fog, whether you live in the coast, bay or inland areas. with that in mind let's talk about the below average temperatures. today alone we're only sitting in the low 70s from san mateo all the way into redwood city. it's a mild setup for us and also in joan city low 70s with 80s in the forecast for us just off near fairfield, even brentwood and everywhere else if you live in the walnut creek area, concord, all throughout the tri-valley, it is well below average and very mild for us. so head outdoors, enjoy this patchy fog condition setup as we extend into the afternoon. kentfield a daytime high of 68 degrees and also the case as we head more north. it's a holiday weekend. we are officially here.
we made it to this long weekend, memorial day on sunday temperatures at that point starting to warm up just a little bit more, sunny conditions, just by monday and then as we take a quick look at what we can expect for our inland east bay as well as the north bay we are expecting sunny conditions. patchy fog lasts until saturday. we'll keep you updated in the weather for. nor for now, gianna, how are things going out there? >> everything is looking good. it's later where it will be a lot busier. let's talk about getting out of town this weekend if you're headed to any of our local airports, san jose minuteta, oakland airport, sfo, things are pretty clear on the freeway. no delays 880, nimitz freeway near the coliseum, through oakland everything is quiet so you should be good there. checking 101 as well if you're headed toward sfo things are guy threat and in san jose we don't have any brake lights or issues so good news there. bay bridge looking good right now as well, no metering lights, but it is friday light and later on, that is certainly going to change. it is a getaway friday. we'll see busy conditions on the
roadways especially after 3:00, so if you can get an early start to your drive, getting out of town, probably a really good idea. a live look at the golden gate again quiet now but that will likely change later on as a lot of people use this to get in and out of town, headed over out of san francisco towards 101, in fact, our getaway routes such as 80, 580, east shore freeway, 80 over to sacramento, 101, even through the south bay, gilroy to 152, expect busy conditions. a lot of that happens after 3:00 this afternoon. we saw an extra busy commute yesterday as well and that's when the afternoon drive people headed home from work and the travel traffic combine. monday if you're coming home plan to leave before 1:00 because between 1:00 and 9:00 will be the busiest times on the roadway. we have great things happening in the bay area this weekend, carnaval festival and parade happens saturday and sunday. we will be live at the parade starting at 9:30, covering it. it will be a lot of fun so if you're out there, say hi but a
