wearing a white t-shirt and gray shorts, a unique description is that this attacker seemed to have some sort of disability, perhaps down's syndrome. there was also evident found at this latest attack and aree ward for up to $2500 for any information that can help catch this man. a very disconcerting. it's 5:05 right now. a northern california man's long battle to overturn hi high-profile terrorism conviction is heading to court. new lawyers will argue their client's previous attorney during his trial was incompetent and failed to find evidence they say proves hayat's innocence. they were arrested in 2005. and investigators say they were tied to a lodi mosque that served as a sleeper cell of sorts, but out of those arrested hayat was the only one convicted

and it looks like they're just about cleared, so nice into and out of san francisco. looking over here, this is the fighters they were talking about. a two-alarm fire. it was visible from the freeway at times, but it looks like things have calmed down looking over toward the tri-valley as well, a bit of a build into livermore. typical for 580, the rest of the tri-valley and tri-city area. all moving smoothly. you're at speed for all of your freeways no problems for the dumbarton bridge. the camera we have pointed at the san mateo bridge, and still blocking, and then clearing just by the other side of the flat section in the eastbound direction. all of this light and activity, this is just the crew that's

and rodriguez was convicted the san francisco sheriff's department sis it's leading the way when it comes to body cameras, on the heels of a major scandal, the department will require cameras for some deputies, following allegations that deputies forced inmates for fight each other. well, it's not a venue for the thinned-skins. but more changes are coming to twitter. >> some are are calling it twitter time-out. >> you're familiar with time-outs. twitter says it will increase the frequency of suspensions to discourage people who write nasty things on its service, also expanding the policy from rho hibting threats of violence against someone to not allows a kuhl to violence against anyone or anything, that is a much more vague and therefore useful policy.

we'll talk about that, but i want to let folks know if you heard about any lighting issues for the golden gate bridge, they were very short-lived. everything is back to normal. an easy drive, where are no delays. in the tri-valley we're looking toward livermore, there is a crash -- all you just saw it goes from yellow to orange, but the crash completely cleared from the roadway. just because of the volume right there at that page interchange. a smooth drive southbound for both 880 and 680 into the south bay. still holding steady with these speeds, and we'll look at the north bay as well. we'll look at fremont here, the wind flapping in the north bay, no delays for that live camera. easy drive. back to you an update to breaking news. firefighters in walnut creek are putting out hot spots at a home near dipictures were sent to you

elevator there at a parking garage on the 100 block of o'farrell here, and also video of the woman rummaging through the victim's vehicle that was marked in that garage while her male accomplice sits in the getaway car. it was on april 11th around 9:00 at night. they serial number 1115, valued at $8500. as you can see. they stole other items from the car as well. as you can tell in that image, they're both white police estimate the woman between 20 and 30 years old. if you recognize them, please would like to hear from you. reporting live here in san francisco, bob redell "day in
the bay." today is earth day. there are many earth day related events. in san francisco, mayor ed lee will announce a new campaign to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, he'll lead a bus tour that starts at at&t park, and points out highlights of his new green initiative. >> if you are inspired by the day there's an earth day resource fair in half moon bay right next to city hall there. volume tiers in richmond will take part in a cleanup along miller knocks regional shoreline. all of those events expected to kick off sometime around 9:00. even the little things make a big difference. you here the term "competing air masses" and we know it can lead to stormy weather. >> good morning. we have an area of high pressure
to our south, and an area of low pressure to our north. the two are going to collide for today. for us we're already seeing the impact, but not here in the bay area necessarily. you can clearly see that counter clockwise rotation, a bit of shower activity coming down over tahoe, and we'll see more of that as we head through the afternoon. we pick up daytime heating, that is what is the main ingredients when it comes to these thunderstorms. you need the instable, the heat and we'll have both today. we could see some thunderstorms right here in the north bay mountains as we head through the afternoon. for today this is what you need to know. generally speaking we are kicking off the new day in the 50s, where some of or hillsides are still nice and green. 52 degrees on the peninsula, though i can tell you, starting to turn a little brown, the hills surrounding san jose. we have a better chance for rain, as we head through this weekend into early next week,
but still could see a few drops as of this afternoon. 74 in the north bay, 77 degrees in the tri-valley, about 72 degrees, that's room temperature for us right here in the south bay. if we do sigh any of that thunderstorm activity, the best bet will be over the western-facing slopes surrounding san jose, and the north bay mountains, but the east bay hills, you're fair game for that activity as well. we'll see more sunshine for that thursday, and then the unsettled pattern tensed into bush but we'll get you outdoors, plus we'll tell you what's happening around here, in just moments here's mike there's always something going on. this is going on in the tri-valley, the second of two crashes reported into the system. it sounds like they are indeed two separate incidents both reported over to the shoulder. this added distraction might
slow a little more between highway 84 and isabel and the dublin interchange. we'll watch that build steadily, as we zoom this map out, we're looking farther north through the walnut creek interchange, we've been tracking that fire, no longer visible from 680. assuming the drive through the bay bridge toll plaza. a live look shows you outside what we are expecting over here. and for the bay bridge, the bay bridge toll plaza backup is starting to form as it typically has. we'll show you the rest of the commute anywhere north of the san mateo bridge. same thing for the south bay the build just starting for 101. back to you all right. here we go. 5:39 right now, terror attack foiled. how french authorities managed to pull this off a northern california man
new this morning, french officials say they foiled an imminent terror attack on at least one church. this morning they have a suspect in custody. a 24-year-old algerian computer science student was arrested after he accidentally shot himself and called an ambulance. inside his home, police found loaded guns, bulletproof vests and detailed documents identifying potential targets. the man is also accused of killing a 32-year-old woman in a suburb of paris drama right now is playing out on the high seas near yemen. u.s. warships have moved into the same area where a fleet of cargo ships are trying to pass through the arannian sea. tracie potts explains why
that cargo may be precious to rebels fighting the government. >> reporter: good morning. we have eight warships. just within the last hour, a white house spokesperson said we are doing enhanced maritime monitoring, in other words, keeping an eye on the iranian cargo ships in that sea. this u.s. aircraft carrier is hovering in the waters off yemen this morning, not far from seven iranian cargo ships. the u.s. fears they're there to delivered weapons to the rebels fighting yemen's government. >> that's a problem, and we're not sending them obscure messages. we send them very direct message being it. >> providing weapons only exacerbates the violence and instability in this region. >> the u.s. is not part of that. the state department says we're there to reassure or allies and keep shipping lanes over. >> our partners rely on these
for a lot of commerce and economic value. >> reporter: if iran's goal was to scare saudi arabia, it may have worked. the saudis announced they're ending air strikes against the rebels and backing peace talks. but the saudis say they weren't scared off by the cargo ships. they were done, done with the air campaign that they say destroyed a lot of those weapons that the rebels were using, and now of course the concern is that iran might be there to replenish them. they also -- they're not done with this war. >> a very combustible situation. thank you very much, tracie potts. northern california man's long battle to overturn hesz high-profile terrorism conviction heads to court later today. new lawyers will argue their client's previous attorneys was incompetent and failed to find evidence. hayat's father and four other men were all arrested back in
2005 during a terror raid. investigators say they were tied to a lodi music that served as a sleeper cell for terrorists, but out of those arrested hayat was the only person convicted the department of homeland security is coming to the silicon valley, opening an openings in the effort to attack top tech personnel. he wants to ensure the government and private sector benefit from each other's research and development. no word on when the office will be opened or where it would be. right now we are getting our first look at video of the latest security breach at the san jose -- taken on march 31st shows a woman after she reportedly scaled a fence.
now after five security breaches? less than a year, the airport has installed 1200 feet of new fencing. the new fence is ten feet tall, four feet higher than the old one also with barbed wire on top new this morning, flying into sfo is about to get a whole lot easier for international travelers. today airport officials will unveil new automated passport kiosks. that means people who arrive at sfo's international terminal won't have to wait in long lines. kind works from a south bay woman here are sparking a mystery stretching from here to the rockies. >> it springs in part from a dark day, a woman left a note on a police cruiser in denver. it had words of support offices say make the job all worst it. michael johnson, the note thanks officers for ricking their lives
day in and day out. denver police were so touched, they were hoping to find lauren just to say thank you. if you recognize the handwriting. >> hopefully we can find her and talk to her about it 5:47 right now this week is shaping -- and could be some thunderstorms on the way good morning. we might actually have some activity later on. the time is 5:47. you'll notice when you walk out that front door, if your hair doesn't already tell you, it is humid out there. we have an interesting set up, as we have two competing air masses. as a result you get the fireworks in between. right here in the bay area, in fact northern california, we're kind of sandwich between the two systems. as a result i think we'll see some thunderstorms, especially over the sierra nevada, where we could see flash flooding. for us some storms firing off,
that's where we have the best bet. second to that will be the south bay mountains, and then of course third. you have to keep in mind the high elevations of the east bay hills, but it's nice and mild, we're on our way to the mid 60s. a warmer day with actually more sunshine that what we had out there. 71 on the peninsula, and right around 74 degrees out in the tri-valley, but the unsettled pattern looks to stay with us all through early next week. pretty much the warmest time of the day between 4:00 and 5:00 is when we have the best bet. you notice our future cast is actually picking up some of those thunderstorms cells, and the high terrain. take a look at all this activity we're anticipating. it is going to be very active. we're going to keep that pattern going as we head through the next couple days, but we're so close to the weekend. it's a big weekend around here.
the butter and eggs day festival is happening. this is going to be pretty school. it's a free event for you and the family. if you can get to petaluma, what a cool city to check out, and they have a cow chip toss. and i do believe laura garcia-cannon had her hand in that competition. >> and the cow milking too. >> taking it back to the old school. upper 60s on the way for friday into saturday. i don't know, mike has been here for a while, have you ever participated in butter and eggs day? >> i have not. laura -- imagine that, you can toss a cow chip, but they won't charge you for it. other places will charge you for that. we're looking out for anything going on right now. an easy flow of traffic here. they slowed a bit as the first burst came in and cleared the
second burst. coming in about 20 minutes, so we'll see those continue to change. just down to 60 in both directions passing through downtown. no incidents reported, but i'll track that. we have your build southbound 680, you saw that icon skip -- i just got word of a crash. over on the shoulder itself is, the third of three crashes, all reported on the shoulders, all slightly different details. but despite that fact, we don't have a lot of slowing through the area. no drama, i do want to show you a live camera out there. still holding very steady. back to you. >> thank you for the report, mike it's 5:50.
here's a look at some of the stores we are looking on for 6:00 a sexual assault on a popular bay area trail, an unusual description of the suspect, and police say it may not have been the first time this suspect attacked and a south bay teenager who showed up for school on monday and then disappeared. the 17 years old attended his first-period class on monday. he has not been seen since. police in san francisco are looking for a cello stolen from a local teen. the thieves were caught on camera. these stories and more coming up at 6:00. we're going to soon learn in the falcon chicks are male or female. this morning a biologist will rappel down to the nest, and place bands on their legs, which allows scientists to track the birds' movements. banding day has taken place at city haul since 2007, kind of a tradition to watch. tesla has a seek krend to
