with even some fog. 60s for temperatures. air-quality is vastly improved. the system is producing rain in the valley with a lot of cloud coverage and isolated showers. things look to be winding down but they will pick up later on with the colder air coming to the north. there is a little bit left around fremont maybe union city and fremont. near the dumbarton bridge as well and toward this cloud coverage but it is not doing too much as the system has moved out with the unstable air coming in. glen ellen .4 inches. san francisco 1/3. san jose almost .25 inches there have been heavier amounts in higher elevations. 40s and 50s getting cooler with the marine advisory and high surf advisory to the northwest.

well. 31 minutes to drive from vallejo to oakland and that is not a bad commute. currently 15 to 20 minutes at the toll plaza and you will notice i am not talking about major problems. ordinary commutes. this is a live look at northbound 101 looking good. so does the 280 extension and 880 northbound is beginning to get crowded near high street headed into oakland and 880 south is slowing down into dakota road. today is a very important day for evacuees in sonoma and napa counties. many will be back in their neighborhoods for the first time in santa rosa. coffey park neighborhood along with the journey's end mobile home park will have controlled entry beginning at 10:00 this morning. as we told you cal fire said

be able to return to hard-hit neighborhoods here in santa rosa. this is what things are looking like after the tub -- tubbs fire tour through the city. one of the neighborhoods where people will be allowed is coffey park. you can clearly see not a lot left standing. evacuees will be allowed to return to the orchard park mobile home community and the journey's end mobile home park on mendocino avenue. people in those neighborhoods will need to have entry passes before hand and show those two law enforcement at the security checkpoints. for those who barely escape the flames this will be the first chance to see what is left. >> i have been in the house for 20 years and everything is gone. we are trying to figure out how to go forward.>> why was there no notice at the start of the fire?
>> we did everything we could to let you guys know. >> reporter: you can see there was frustration last night during a meeting that was held for fire victims and evacuees in santa rosa. the meeting was meant to focus on the process for allowing people back to their neighborhoods today. many questioned authorities about the lack of warning as the tubbs fire raced into santa rosa. later this morning we are expecting evacuees will return to coffey park and orchard park as well as the journey's end community as well but they will only be allowed entry for today and tomorrow. another area that was hit hard is the fountain grove neighborhood east of highway 101. authorities are still working on a plan to get people back to the area. >> alex savidge, i know a lot of people said they were light

fine. northbound 101 on the silicon valley commute it is a little better than normal but there are slowdowns. let's bring in steve paulson. okay, sunshine and clouds after the system went by but it made it to the southern san joaquin valley so sun and clouds but cooler and breezy. 60s with the low clouds and cloud coverage is streaming in from the west southwest. you can see some cool unstable air is rotating in and winding down but there could be isolated showers as we get some afternoon heating. we have a few pop-ups around union city and fremont down toward this area things look to be done. a lot of cloud coverage all the way down toward the monterey peninsula even in the santa clara valley. give credit to the system there
