jamba juice has deep roots in california. the first shop opened 26 years ago. now it ises a global chain. jamba juice says its emeryville lease was almost up and after reviewing the cost of living here, it decided on frisco, a suburb of dallas. scott mcgrew says jamba juice is notable because it often does not pay workers minimum wage. >> which sounds illegal, but that's definitely not what you are saying. >> no. it is a perfectly law-abiding company. jamba juice often pays for more than minimum wage. it was one of the first companies to recognize the economy in the bay area in particular was strong enough and competition for labor so high it would benefit from paying more than minimum wage. there are two lessons here. one in our strong economy, companies are competing not just for employees, but the best employees in this category. you don't want just anybody but
6:15 am
you want the best entry level workers. when we talk about raising the minimum wage which is well and good, lots of jobs you think are minimum wage actually aren't. it's jobs friday. the american economy added 160,000 jobs in the month of april. that's a decent number, but not as good as it's been. not the 200,000 plus we've been seeing since the start of 2016. nbc news has shown more clips of the interview with the hacker called guccifer who says he was able to get into the private e-mail server owned by hillary clinton. the fbi says it may question clinton. a federal judge may have to testify. spacex successfully launched a private communications satellite last night. we showed you the launch earlier. here is the landing. listen to the crowd roar. it stuck the landing just fine. turns out to be the most popular
6:16 am
part of the process. they got the for the second time in a row. the reason they didn't expect this to work it was coming out of a super high orbit. the first stage quit really high. it was coming down like a bat out of hell. so they were able to land it is a huge success. >> is the accuracy rate improving now? for a while they were struggling. >> they always hit the bar. just how fast and how big was the explosion? >> fascinating to watch. >> sticking the landing, always the toughest part. >> exactly. just like the olympics. >> thank you, scott mcgrew. this may take a while for shark fans to get over. a tough loss. they did not stick the landing.
6:17 am
that was game four of the stanley cup playoff series against the nashville predators. mike fisher scoring the game winner in the third overtime. that ends one of the longest games in sharks' playoff history. almost five hours of hockey. it ties the series at two games apiece. game five tomorrow night back home in san jose. >> bay area sports fans going through a lot these days.ç jobs are going to fly to portland today. >> steph curry, is he going to play or not play? looks like he will not play tomorrow night. steph has yet to participate in a full practice. he could be ready to go by monday. warriors up 2-0. the team says there is no reason to rush curry back on to the
6:18 am
court. that's wise. >> this team, truly all the players contribute in a very quantitative way. it's cool. >> this team does, too. >> you guys are okay without me. let's hope my knee holds out. >> if you are trying to figure out where this rain is going to land and when today. >> we see all those clouds hovering over san francisco. also as we take a look outside at sunol we see the clouds overhead. this is what you can expect throughout the next several hours today and tomorrow. looking at 52 now in the north bay. 56 in the east bay. we drop in to get a closer look.
6:19 am
58 dublin. 55 in alameda. don't forget the umbrella. still tracking this rain moving in from the east. that will continue to spin closer to sacramento. it will be over the bay area. this is a look at the futurecast. it gives us an idea of the timing when we could start to see more rain moving in. it does show rain by 10:00 or 11:00 this morning for most of us. quickly rolling off towards the west and south. then it clears out for later this evening. we'll start it over again tomorrow with not as much widespread rain but hit or miss showers. even late tomorrow night we may see rain moving into parts of the north bay. rainfall totals show anywhere from about 0.1 inch to 0.25 inch where scattered showers move in.
6:20 am
this area of low pressure starts to move east away from us and allows high pressure to move in. we'll have warming temperatures between sunday and monday. highs reaching mid to upper 60s and chance for storms in the north bay. still rain in the forecast saturday though it will not be a washout. there will be the pop-up shower or two throughout the day. then sunday will dry it out as our temperatures come up a couple of degrees. 75 in the north bay. 65 in the peninsula. i'll continue to watch this over the next couple of days. then nice and dry for sunday. let's head over to mike to see what's happening on the roadways. >> you talk about that system coming in. talking about mist on the san mateo bridge. haven't seen windshield wipers
6:21 am
being used, but we have seen a good volume of traffic westbound. we see a little blip. that is a typical pattern. northbound 87 we had that wood scattered across lanes northbound approaching 280. it cleared. you can't see anything but green in the northbound commute. good stuff here. live look to show you dublin. 580 to the area. this is the tassajara offramp. not a lot of slowing. there is debris causing a bit of slowing. one lane blocked there bay bridge toll plaza, they are filled by all these folks here. we see a shadow of a spdr just right about there.
6:22 am
that's on the lens. you can't see it on the approach. back to you. >> that would freak out those commuters, i would think. 6:22. no unity in the gop. big-name republicans saying they are not ready to support donald trump.
6:23 am
i want to show you some cutting edge technology. this is a vhs tape. push that tape in and hit play. this is a flip phone. have you seen these before? it's called a compact disc. oh. looks like we're getting a facsimile. what year is it to you? it's old. you'd rather use newer technology? definitely. well, i've got something to show you. this is the 2016 chevy volt. it uses extended range electric technology. the prius hybrid uses battery technology developed 15 years ago. chevy expects volt drivers to get over a thousand miles between fill ups. it's got every technology there is. the prius actually belongs on the table. ♪ ♪ ♪ don't you just love it ♪ ♪

6:26 am
there are other top republicans who are are not coming to that convention. mitt romney, former presidents george bush, '41 and '43 say they are staying away from the convention. he's got fence mending to do. donald trump is hoping to focus forward on issues. it's some of those issues like immigration and trade and whether or not to ban muslims from this country, his positions alienated people within his own party. including supporters of ted cruz. we are waiting to see if he will be able to pull it all together. >> pretty inflammatory remarks. >> next on "today in the bay," we've seen rain, hail and lightning. we are not in the clear yet. kari hall is tracking more wet

6:28 am
6:29 am
6:30 am
>>. >> right now, it's 6:30. another day of rain falling across the bay area today. could stick around long enough to impact your weekend plans. good morning and thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm sam brock. mike will give you an update on your commute. there are clouds everywhere. >> this will bring in more scattered showers today but not yet. it's holding off for the time being, but we are watching that rain farther to the east of us actually moving westward. this is what we'll see by about 11:00 or 12:00 today. scattered rain moving in from the east that will continue to affect our weekend plans, as well. i'll detail and what to expect tomorrow as we still have rain in the forecast. that's coming up in a few minutes. mike's been tracking the dry morning commute. that doesn't mean it's all
6:31 am
clear. >> i have a distraction here. this crane putting something here on top of that building just on the side of 880. that may be a distraction for folks on the road. there is the bay bridge. not a problem here. just the metering lights. we see a smooth flow of traffic around the bay. no real slowdown except or south 880. that is the standard pattern where the light flow is like we see on a friday most normal weeks. >> thank you so much. all new this morning, san francisco taking aim at the academy of art university. the city attorney is reportedly set to announce that he is filing a lawsuit against the popular art school. >> stephanie chuang live in san francisco. what is the reason behind all of this? >> reporter: good morning. the academy of art university is the largest for-profit art school in the country. you can see it reflected in the number of buildings the school owns in the city, 40 of them.
6:32 am
according to "the chronicle" san francisco is expected to file a lawsuit today accusing the school of illegally converting 22 of those buildings from former apartment and hotel properties into mostly student housing without getting the required zoning authorization. it describes a decades-long battle fining the academy of arts hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines still unpaid for alleged planning violation. they want the academy of art to pay potentially tens of millions of dollars in penalties. what remains to be seen is how much of this property we are talking about. city attorney dennis herera says the converted student housing is exacerbating the scarce supply of affordable housing and it may have been way of dealing with an enrollment boom from 5,000 in 1992 to an explosion of 18,000
6:33 am
at one point. the university spent $8 million during nine years to put together an environmental impact report that had to be completed before the properties could be legalized. the attorney says that report should be done by july 1st. and is surprised at what the city is doing now filing this lawsuit. we are expecting to learn more at a press conference at city hall held by the city attorney. 6:33. attorneys for former 49er star dana stubblefield are expected to reveal more evidence they say proves his innocence. they say he sexually assaulted a developmentally disabled woman last year after she interviewed for a job. a historic but unsettling find at a construction site in west berkeley. a second set of partial human remains were found there at a site currently under

6:35 am
bethlehem towers in santa rosa. that broke out on the sixth floor of the highrise apartment building and broke out about 4:00 yesterday. thankfully, firefighters were apartment but had to evacuate other floors. they found the 74-year-old woman in the stairwell. she suffered severe burns over 35% of her body. right now the cause of that fire remains under investigation. >> 6:35. a south bay family is suing the gilroy unified school district claiming it failed to report alleged abuse by a teacher. this woman says her daughter received sexually harassing text messages from the high school chemistry teacher. the family says it happened two years ago but officials did nothing. >> whether or not his behavior rises to the level of criminal behavior is not our issue. our issue is they needed to comply with all laws of the state regarding what a school district's legal duty is to the children.
6:36 am
>> the individual who admittedly engaged in gross sexual misconduct and because they failed to take meaningful action, many more children were harmed. >> last week police arrested him on campus on accusations of catfishing. officers say he posed online as a female and formed relationships with young men. detectives say he convinced hundreds of minors to send him lewd pictures. his catfishing did not happen at school. as for the complaints by the bend family, officials say there was no criminal activity that required him to be dismissed. he resigned friday. a crime of opportunity in the south bay. it's a reminder to lock your doors. new surveillance video showing a man and woman getting into unlocked cars in campbell. in total, the three unlocked cars were targeted and the couple got off with cash, iphone and paperwork from two of those

6:38 am
system. he's written legislation that would set aside $23 million in state funding to do that. >> they will detect any shaking that begins and transmit that to california and give a person who has a smart phone or siren or on tv a warning. >> the big question is if the system will be reliable. pg&e and b.a.r.t. are plugged into the sensors. a really good system detecting earthquakes could be years away. family at oakley believes lightning traveled through their flagpole yesterday morning and hit their front door. the force knocked pictures off the wall and caused a ceiling fan to come crashing down. her 10-year-old grandson was in the living room when the lightning struck. >> i immediately got on the ground and tucked in. >> realizing how serious this really was and could have been worse. it could have blown my whole

house up and my family was it in. >> the lightning triggered a middle school alarm. they did the right thing. >> scary. at least they knew the protocol. >> they knew it was coming because of kari's warning. >> you can still track the rain at any point by using the nbc bay area app. you can get a live view of the radar and zoom in to where you live. you may need to do that with these scattered showers. as we look at mostly cloudy skies, we start out with no rain but definitely a possibility as we go later into the morning and early afternoon with scattered rain and thunderstorms. i'll detail in a few minutes. let's head over to mike now. >> we have slowing there.
