mountain view's google taking some heat from sheriff's departments across the country this morning, over a popular traffic app that you may use. "today in the bay's" stephanie chuang joins us live at google headquarters in mountain view. some worry the app which lets you report the location of police officers could expose officers to targeted atacks. good morning. >> reporter: that's right, good morning to you, sam. it's about vulnerability and the possibility of these attacks. google bought wave back in 2013 for $966 million. this is a sort of social networking app as well as navigation and allows you to report things on it. it has reported 50 million users in 200 countries. the popularity has soared in the last few years. it's a free crowd sourcing app that allows people to give real time updates during drives, about traffic jams to accidents, red light cameras to where the patrol cars are seen around town
5:13 am
and along the highways. some sheriffs launched a campaign demanding google turn off that police locator feature calling it a potentially dangerous tool for would-be police stalkers and/or killers. there are no known links between wave and police attacks but some deputies raised concerns about the possibility during the national sheriff's association winter conference in washington, citing the recent fatal shootings of two new york police officers. the man accused of the killings posted a screen shot from wave on his instagram account along with messages threatening police although investigators do not believe that he used the app to ambush the officers because in part, he had ditched his cell phone more than two miles away. wave spokesperson says the company thoroughly considers safety and security, working with the new york police department and others across globe by sharing information adding "these relationships keep citizens safe, promote faster emergency response and help alleviate traffic congestion." google has not commented.

5:15 am
50 years ago that could have been the basis of a war. these days, cooler heads will prevail. the euro fell against the dollar against, it's now $1.11, it will buy you aa euro. if anything it's a good time to go to europe. landon dowdy good morning. >> good morning to you. stocks may come under pressure as investors react to the elections you were just mentioning. certainly markets around the world worried about a possible sovereign debt default in the country and this could create more instability in europe. markets are coming off their first winning week of the year. there's no economic data today but reports this week on durable goods, home prices, new home sales and consumer confidence, also the fed holds a two-day meeting starting tomorrow. on friday the dow fell 141 points to 17,672, the nasdaq rose 7 to 4757. back to you. >> landon, thank you. elon musk paid one of the highest compliments on tv last night, on "the simpsons."

5:38 am
rapidly, because just to our south we got an area of low pressure sneaking up, combined with an area of high pressure located over the four corners region is going to bring us what we call monsoonal moisture and that means for us tomorrow afternoon, we have a really good chance for some strong thunderstorms to develop in the sierra, nevada. for us, we'll see light shower activity but we're fair game for an isolated thunderstorm. dry and warm again for humid with showers as of tuesday and and this february outlook i promised you actually shows that we have some significant rainfall coming in as of early february. now whenever we take a look at the long-term, ourmqt5wtfj fore ability is not as accurate as two or three days out but looks good and i'll show what you we see in moments. back to you, sam aç laura. >> we'll look forward to it, thank you. new jersey governor chris christie taking the first step towards a presidential run in 2016. the "wall street journal" reports he's launching
