Weather & Traffic: Wednesday, Oct. 24

More sun and fun for the Bay Area today, according to National Weather Service forecasters.

Coastal cities should see temperatures hovering in the 60s with sunny skies all day and breezes picking up into the afternoon.

Inland and South Bay

Hotter temperatures reaching into the lower 80s are expected for cities inland and in the south bay.

Fire Warnings

The National Weather Service has canceled a red-flag warning today for critical fire conditions that had been in effect since 6 a.m. Oct. 17. The affected counties included San Francisco, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, Marin, Monterey, Contra Costa, Napa, Benito, Sonoma, Santa Clara and Alameda.

Tonight

Clear skies are expected tonight with the some low clouds and fog at the coast. Temperatures should rop into the 40s and mid-50s.

Tomorrow

Another sunny day for the Bay Area with some low clouds and fog at the coast during the morning. Temperatures are expected to range between the mid-60s and 70s.

Traffic It's a slow commuter day out there, especially in the East Bay, with an early traffic accident on eastbound Interstate 580 only allowing vehicles to pass on the right shoulder. Commuters have made Interstate 880 an alternate route, and the additional volume is slowing traffic down on that highway now.

The Bay Bridge metering lights came on a little earlier than normal and subsequently the toll plaza is packed. Commuters should expect delays.
