7:47 am
earlier this morning where we're sitting right now in san jose. you can see some of those dark clouds in the distance. this all has to do with monsoonal moisture. the same thing that's well contributing to our heat from that high high pressure ridge that's built up. we are seeing some rainfall really limited at this point to just the north bay and a couple of pockets there right around alameda. if you're at least on the western edge of alameda and parts of oakland, you are seeing a brief resurgence of rainfall currently. now we are seeing smoke also across the bay area, not as much of an impact as yesterday, but wildfires to our north are certainly contributing to that. this high pressure ridge is contributing to the heat as well as the monsoonal moisture. the factors that we're talking all about this morning, monsoonal moisture goes away. come the afternoon as temperatures begin to build enough so that solano county lake and mendocino counties back into heat advisory territory between 11 this morning at 08:00pm tonight. few clouds this morning. skies clear very nicely this afternoon. it's going to be

7:49 am
day of the rest of the forecast. but cooler than yesterday. so you can see the trend ahead of us is only bringing some relief rain. john, thank you for that. enable traffic has been pretty busy this morning. if you are traveling along a 80 at this hour. >> san leandro down to milpitas about 47 to 50 minutes of traffic. certainly picking up on the southbound side. you see a few delays as you're traveling along the northbound side when she reached 3 months. 21 minutes heading into the city maze to that freeman street exit. the traffic definitely has been pretty busy for us. 17 minutes, a 80 to one o one. we had an accident along one o one that is clear is right at 92. so you're still seeing residual issues from that crockett outdoors, the maze. look at that. a 41 minute ride traveling down happen on 24 westbound. traveling from walnut creek down to 5.80, just under 15 minutes for you as you're making that commute and traveling up along one o one. a 53 minute ride from 85 little park darya. james, back to you. thanks. a lot of rain at 7.49, a pilot program is
