6:14 pm
explosive fireworks. >> even the safe and sane there's always a danger they'll malfunction. they do have flash powder in them like everything else. they just don't have as much. i think a lot of people believe these are just fireworks, but they're really not. everything dangerous to explosives is completely against the law anywhere in the state. in california these are explosive devices. they have enough powder to meet that criteria for the state law. they go boom. >> reporter: and surrounding police agencies like san jose are on the lookout for anybody bringing in any type of fireworks. >> we are discouraging anybody from possessing or using fireworks on their own whether they be considered illegal or safe and sane. >> we want to have fun but we don't want to blow nobody's house up. we're all trying to be safe and just have fun out there. it's fourth of july. you have to celebrate, family barbecue, that's it. >> that was really cute.
6:15 pm
>> reporter: yes, but again, it also means four days of buying and using fireworks so there will be ongoing concern. and county chief investigator dennis johnson also pointed out there has been a resurgence of the more explosive illegal fireworks. he says that's because the internet has made them much easier to find and buy. live in gilroy robert honda, nbc bay area news. okay thank you, robert. good news for everyone hitting the road for the fourth of july. let's give you a live look at two bay area freeways 880 in oakland. pretty clear, both of them. now beginning today the tax on gas is dropping. it'll go from 36 cents per gallon to 30 cents a gallon. gas prices overall have declined down approximately 65 cents from this time last year. beware if you're on the road this weekend. the national safety council forecast said more than 400 americans will be killed on the road during this july 4th weekend. in addition nearly 50,000 people will be hurt in car accidents. if those predictions prove
6:16 pm
accurate it would be the deadliest fourth of july weekend since 2008. on average there are 37% more highway fatalities on july 4th than the average july day. apple pay is the latest way to shop, quick, easy but is it safe? in a story only on nbc bay area our business and tech reporter scott budman is live among the shoppers in santa clara with an exclusive look at the future of shopping and, scott, it appears apple pay is working well so far. >> reporter: so far, janelle. this is how we're doing it shopping with our phones our watches, and you may be surprised to hear with more security. people do it every day. from the skate shop -- >> it's been here a long time. >> reporter: -- to the corner deli. they pay for things with their phones or watches, services like apple pay and paypal giving us a

moment the faster iphone may be on the way. the next generation 6s will reportedly appear identical to the current lineup of phones at least on the outside. the major difference will be on the inside. according to the website 9 to 5 mac apple plans to include a new chip in the phone making it capable of delivering speeds twice as fast as the current iphone 6. the new processor is said to be more power efficient meaning the phone's battery may last you longer. the kill switch law goes into effect today. the law requires that all new smart phones sold in california come with preequipped kill switch technology to protect people from smartphone theft. it lets users lock their phones remotely when it's lost or stolen. smartphone thefts are declining. they were down between 2013 and 2014. now to the latest on our drought. when it comes to saving water californians are doing better than expected. in may water use fell by 29%.

6:20 pm
showers at times. so the sea breeze picking up and the brief chances of seeing showers as it evaporates in the atmosphere, both help to cool things off a little bit. the 24-hour temperature change for parts of the bay area you see that 10% across the valleys. with the numbers still in the mid-90s, the heat advisory continuing through 9:00 for the tri-valley and south bay valley. temperatures staying warm right now. sunol 87 degrees. some showers passing by there and check out the radar view as we don't often get to do this as we look at temperatures in the 80s and 90s and showers moving across the bay area. close to dublin and pleasanton a few more to san francisco, maybe a few brief sprinkles. but where this is coming from there's more to it. it continues to spill in from the east and crossing the bay area. as we head into tonight and tomorrow brief showers possible, replace the heat with the humidity and in the mountain tops we could see a slight chance of some thunder especially out to the sierra.
6:21 pm
the same ridge of high pressure providing the heat sending the moisture our way probably through about friday afternoon. so we're going to see some cooler temperatures with extra clouds at times all day tomorrow. look how they're coming up out of the southeast and at times a few spotty showers will be possible. look at the temperatures. i know it will be hughmid but not near 100 degrees for a change. 86 degrees in san jose. 60s to low 70s around san francisco and for the north bay temperatures in the low 80s and low 90s still around the tri-valley. as we head to fourth of july weekend we will continue to see our temperatures cooling down. we'll talk more about that fourth of july forecast and show you the latest look on radar as we track rare summer showers moving through the bay area. back to you. >> okay thank you, rob. the 49ers may not have won a super bowl in the south bay yet but helped the county win a new title. and some new polish on the rock. it's alcatraz like you've never seen it before.
