5:09 am
little smoother, once the all clear is given we expect that delay to recover. within the hour should be no major issue. so far they have net yet to give us the all clear. everything else is moving smoothly. the south bay, peninsula and the southbound 101 sneer san rafael, no delays. coming up, hundreds ever thousands of people hit hard by the recession getting a chance. plus how does a $50 tablet computer sound? not from apple, either. plus we have got more than a year to go but presidential hopefuls are campaigning like the election is right around the corner. and their latest stops include some strategic spending. the picnics and parades are over

5:14 am
in our new nbc poll in iowa if the election were to be held today, joe biden would beat donald trump in iowa by 5 percentage points. hillary clinton would lose to trump by four. >> so interesting to see how it's all go to play out. i wish we had a crystal ball. it's 5:14. lawmakers are returning to capitol hill after the month long summer recess and critical issues will be up for debate. the government runs out of money on september 30th. also needing to be resolved, half a billion dollars going to planned patient hood. congress must vote this month on whether to approve or reject the controversial iran nuclear agreement. the republican controlled congress is likely to pass motions disapproving the deal, though president obama appears to have enough support to veto. microsoft going to court. they are going to try to convince a judge that data stored overseas is not subject to american law. >> it's part of microsoft's efforts to protect your data from prying eyes.

5:18 am
scrub hub found college students are 162% more likely to order frozen yogurt than everyone else, waffle fries are second on the list. >> that was grub hub. >> you better have it quickly delivered i would think, especially in the days coming. >> froyo sounds good, especially when it's sizzling outside. you may want to head to the nearest shop and get some nice cool ice cream, frozen yogurt. as we take a live look out at the bay bridge, look at that, it is nice and clear and after yesterday's heat it is coming down. we will start out with some cool and clear conditions this morning and then it warms up once again. let's take a look at all of the temperatures now. 57 degrees in the north bay, 61 degrees in the south bay, a high of 96 degrees today in the east bay and tri-valley up to 103. 96 in san francisco, the north bay 98 degrees and 101 today in

5:20 am
in san francisco comes back down into the mid 70s by the end of the weekend. now mike is tracking some commute problems. we had some earlier delays through the dublin interchange but now it seems things are moving smoother near. 580 westbound. as we look at your map there is a slower drive for pleasanton down in toward livermore. we're spreading things out now towards 680. there may have been a crew or something going on, but everything seems to be sort tgself out, back to a typical tuesday build which should start kick nothing over at the bay bridge in the next few minutes. so far nothing unusual there. as we look at the rest of the area toward 880 and the coliseum a smooth drive, but at the coliseum station folks might be waiting a little extra for the bart. quick look at fremont, we will show you that volume of traffic starting to ease up a tad bit r bit southbound. no time to wait no time to spare. bay area firefighters ditch their broken down rig when they
