hold and maintain itself. usually we see it coming straight up. it's not the case. we will have low clouds, fog and mostly sunny. few high clouds but it doesn't look as bad as first thought. tropical moisture. there is still plenty down there. there will be the increase. 50s, 60s. nevado is 51, 61 concord. livermore on the warmer side. 64. their warmer day this month officially, officially at 98 degrees. i know53 san rafael. there was a lot of moisture but now it's starting to take a turn, exit stage right. the rest continues to go out to the pacific. monsoon clouds, moisture continue to kind of filter in here. it does look like some of that may appear later on. not as much as first thought. if it's through the inside it's
still warm to hot but does look cooler today. temperatures today leveled off and then high clouds muggy if you get the higher clouds. it remains to be seen if we will get much. look at the sierra nevada. that's going into early next week. it's very close for tahoe. i will watch that if you are going up in that direction. 60s to the 90s on the temperatures and these are pretty close to average and then back to quiet pattern as we go into the weekend. >> all right. thank you. 4:20 is the time right now. a child was found dead on a daycare bus. coming up in 25 minutes what police say about the conditions and that child. >> and a wedding ring found on a bay area beach. the mission to get it back to its rightful owner.

pattern of stars and perhaps shamrocks on the water's edge. inside the ring it says from now to eternity. >> someone long ago was in love with someone and this ring is symbolic of that but i don't know the rest of the story. >> reporter: once he found the ring the next question is what to do with it now. how do you get it to the rightful owner. it sat in his home since late january. he was unsure what to do. >> the plan was to try to find who it was but i'm not an internet -- facebooker, twitter person. >> reporter: his friend definitely is. >> i thought this is really cool. we should post this to social media. if there is anyone that twitter loves it's a mystery. i thought post to t nothing has been verified.
