4:52 am
temperatures will come down a bit. today, 70s and low 80s around the bay. upper 80s elsewhere. there will be a few 90s but most will be in the 80s. still mild and warm on friday but cooler into the weekend and early next week. >> i think people are ready to say goodbye to the 90s, for sure. >> it's been one extreme to the other. torrential rain and snow last year. bennett was hot this summer. that's why i'm leaning on cold this winter. >> i would like to have no rain on halloween. that was not very fun last year. coming up, the pressure is on. next, a warning for new parents after tests show arsenic in baby food and formula. my friend susie cracks me up. but one laugh,
