told not to do it again. >> those goslings in trouble. >> a traffic jam. poor human beings, they were not in any hurry. >> they're pretty darling. >> they're going to end up on animal planet. the weather, perhaps they wanted a coat, like the geese had there. it was breezy and chilly. you're going to want a nice jacket for tomorrow morning. we're talking 40s and low 50s to start the day. and daytime temperatures running fairly cool. if you have a light jacket you should be fine. mid-50s outside. patches of low clouds and still a bit on the windy side. west winds at 13 into oakland. we can show you san francisco, 20-mile-per-hour sea breeze at this hour with low clouds and maybe misty skies over the peninsula for the morning. and san jose has winds at 7 miles per hour. those wind speeds will be one of the reasons why our temperatures are going to stay below average
for most of the week. there's a chance of showers tomorrow, parts of the coastal range will see a chance of showers. as we approach next weekend, things still unsettled. not like you'd expect to see this time of year. usually you see 80s or low 90s coming up with high pressure, that doesn't appear to be the case over the next seven to ten days. for tomorrow morning, areas of low clouds. the area to watch in terms of showers, areas north of santa rosa and napa. santa cruz mountains, may see a mid-afternoon shower, and the same pattern repeats for tuesday afternoon, especially in northern sonoma county. instability will be increasing across those higher elevations of the coastal range. those elevations having the best chance for adding up rain totals. notice here, heading up to the
north bay, arias north of santa rosa lake county, that looks like decent amounts of ran fin the first half of the week. mostly 60s across the bay area. low to mid-6 0s from san francisco. and i think the hills around morgan hill may see an isolated shower firing up. and this is the culprit, this area of low pressure hanging out, keeping temperatures down. first half of the week, highs in the low 60s. second half of the week, temperatures try to rebound. san jose maybe some mid-70s. and a subtle warmup as we head towards thursday and friday. next weekend, unsettled. another area of low pressure
will drop in for memorial day weekend. most of the showers will likely stay east of the bay area, but we're not going to warm up a whole lot under this pattern. mid-70s possible by the time we get to sunday, notice partly cloudy skies. memorial day monday may be the warmest of the next ten. the valleys getting back to the mid-70s, but that's only average, between now and saturday, below average temperature wise, by the beginning of next week, perhaps edging closer to the 70s. coming up, a national anthem controversy. a gay mens choir says they were snubbed by the padres. and a mysterious scare grows even bigger, what products you should be checking. a warning tonight about several
food recalls in stores across the country. ==vo== a warning tonight about several food recalls in stores across the country. more products containing sunflower seeds are getting pulled from shelves for a possible listeria contamination. it includes planters and sun rich naturals. also a processing plant in the washington state is recalling more than 350 frozen foods such as onions and peaches. all of the affected products have april 26, 2016 and april it 26, 2018. a national anthem
controversy. the gay mens chorus was supposed to perform, they never did. they said no attempt was made to stop the recording and they received quote, homophobic taunts while they were being escorted off the field. the padres issued an apology saying a mistake was made and that the team fired the contractor who was responsible for the error. commencement speeches have been hitting headlines lately, and one featured a speaker straight from hollywood. he was bourrn in oakland. maybe you recognize him as rehmi. he returned yesterday in the pouring rain to give an
emotional and inspiring speech. he told seniors he owed his blossoming acting career to the teachers at st. mary's. >> for the first time in my life, i could feel the undertow of the unknown. and it was at that moment a professor in the communications department threw me a raft in the form of a car. >> he went on to explain the professor told him to honor his gift of acting and later ali was accepted into a school of the arts. he's 12 years old and thinking about college. he is already accepted to uc santa cruz and uc davis. he is receiving one of his three community college degrees. he's stacking them up there. he says he plans to become a doctor by age 18.
he started community college at age 7. he was so young his mother had to attend classes with him. he thinks learning is fun. >> would you go to a doctor who was 18? >> depends on the kind of doctor. maybe brain surgery, probably not. that's amazing. >> 12 years old. coming up. we investigate the housing situation. >> the people who live on welfare have no place to go. >> just ahead. investigative reporter goes undercover to expose what might be fueling those sky rocketing rent prices. and a popular bakery known for burnt almond cake closes down after a fire. francisco.and many people are
san francisco. many people are looking to earn a little extra cash by renting out their homes on a temporary basis. airbnb makes it look easy. but the listings are blamed for hiking up the cost of living. >> reporter: guys, it is hard enough to find an affordable place in san francisco, but now what used to be full-time housing is in sometimes being marketed illegally as short-term legal. that means less housing and higher prices for the rest of us. and the problem has exploded, with thousands breaking the law each day and getting away with it. >> this is the living room. >> reporter: elizabeth fromer is used to playing host. just about every week she opens up her san francisco home to a new group of strangers. a couple vacationing from
france, this vet nary opportunity from germany. this woman is from the u.k. and is the latest guest in fromer's spare gid room rented out using airbnb. >> i've met some interesting, interesting people. this is a much more personal way to travel. as opposed to just staying in a hotel room. >> reporter: fromer says hosting helps her pay the bills. she's 71 and retired in a city that's consistently ranked one of the most expensive in the country. in the '80s, san francisco banned short-term rentals, but last year the city loosened restrictions. if residents follow certain rules and get a permit. you were actually one of the first people to get registered? >> yes, i have certificate number one. yes. >> reporter: since fromer got her permit, just over 1,000 others have registered. but airbnb alone says it has
over 7,000 hosts, listing over 9,000 properties, that means in san francisco, at least 82% of hosts are breaking the law. >> isn't that pretty much a failing grade? >> i think there is still work to be done. and it's important for us to get the word out about the need to register. >> reporter: kevin guy oversees that process as the director of short-term rental. his staff of six people are trying to make the process easier while cracking down on those who operate illegal hotels. over the past year, they have collected fines for violations at 90 properties, ranging from several hundred dollars to several thousand. >> the enforcement is not meeting even basic standards of what you would consider acceptable. >> most people are breaking the law and getting away with it, can you honestly say the system is working? >> if there are legislative
changes and the board feels it necessary to make the program work differently, then we'll adapt to the changes in the legislation. >> reporter: to help weed out illegal rentals, the city contacted the internet's biggest home-sharing companies, airbnb, craigslist. they asked that hosts be required to include their registration number in their app. that was more than four months ago. did they give you everything you were asking for? >> no. no. >> reporter: airbnb says it does remove some illegal ads, but thousands are still online. the other home sharing websites never got back to us. by law, hosts in san francisco have to register with the city and actually live in the home they're trying to rent out. and you can only rent out your home 90 days per year if guests stay at your maplace while you' not there. the home has to be your primary residence. so by that definition, a person
can't rent out more than one property. but as we discovered, those rules are largely ignored. out of a sample of ten properties, city records show eight are not registered. including this place. my producer and i went under cover to check into this apartment in the richmond district. this is your place? >> yes. >> reporter: you don't live in the building. >> no. >> reporter: she lists four different properties around the state and also had an employee there to show us around. and the woman who said she owned the building admitted having other short-term rentals. you have a lot of other places you do airbnb? >> yes. >> reporter: how many other airbnb places do you have? >> los angeles. >> reporter: inside the house there weren't many signs somebody lived there full time. and inside, rooms were numbered like a hotel. and we found others listing
profiles. three of them are in san francisco. not exactly the homey feel elizabeth fromer offers her guests. every day there are literally thousands of people breaking the short-term rental laws that you're obeying. >> this is true. >> reporter: and those people are also your competition. >> yep. things have gotten out of hand. people are buying up whole houses and converting them into short-term rental. the people who live and work there have no place to go. >> reporter: you're upset that people are abusing the shoort-term rental system and taking away housing. >> yes. yes. there's no reason for that. >> airbnb believes the city's process to get folks registered is too complicated. so it doesn't require its users to get a city permit. but a potential new law could change the entire industry for short-term rental. vickie nguyen has that story
tonight at 11:00, when she sits down one on one with a top executive with airbnb. back to you. >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call or send an e-mail to the unit, nbcbayarea.com. a man killed a woman with a truck. the man who was driving is in his 30s and was driving drunk. the truck veered off the roadway in a removes part of santa rosa. it crashed into a concrete barrier and flipped again. >> it was a high-speed. >> the man was taken to the hospital where he was then arrested. police have not released the names of the driver or passenger. a popular san jose bakery is closed after a fire broke out
there. investigators are trying to figure out how that started. it started in dick's bakery. fire started about 3:00 this morning in the back storage area of the bakery. nobody hurt, dick's bakery is a family-owned business since 1947. the owner has no idea how that fire might have started. >> they're investigating. it might be arson. i don't know. >> dick's has been here forever, for as long as i remember. i love coming here after it, usually in the morning. i'll stop by and get some donuts and my burnt almond cake. >> ironic, the claim to fame. he plans to rebuild and reopen. >> you have to wait to the holidays to get that burnt almond cake if you're out of luck. millennials may not be thinking enough about their future. >> at least that's what a new survey suggests.
goes up, gets fouled and ends up kicking steven adams in the groin. that riled up the okc crowd. kevin durant takes it and was unstoppable. a game high 33 points. moments later, deion waiters. thunder, most points by any team this post season, they win 133-105. >> i didn't have them ready to play, obviously, and i didn't think any of our guys competed at the level, not just in terms of how hard we're playing, but in terms of using our brains and moving the ball and making them work. we didn't do any of that, and we got what we deserved. >> for us, it can't be about
what the other team's doing. we've got to be ourselves and do the things that have got us to this point a lot better than we did tonight, especially on the offensive end. >> i completely lost my poise, and i can't do that as a leader, so it will be all right. seven game series. we come here and win one game. so we got to do it. you know, it would be great to do that in game four and kind of get home court advantage back. >> to the diamond and the rubber game between the giants. we're going to start in the box. fifth in being, rips a double after kyle hendrix. that will bring in blanco. bumgarner, 26 rbi over the last three seasons. next closest pitcher in baseball has 14. bumgarner strikes out anthony

millennials, their parents.... and their grandparents.... aren't planning enough for the future. a new survey suggests that millennials, their parents and grandparents aren't planning enough or saving enough for the future, and the future certainly has a way of showing up eventually, and when it does, there's not enough cash to live on. chris clack ham has the story.
>> reporter: millennials need to look no further than their parents or grandparents, three quarters of those asked in a survey expressed serious regrets over how poorly they've handled their money. >> the biggest financial regret that americans have is that they didn't start saving for retirement early enough. >> reporter: failing to save for retirement is a regret millennials can quickly reverse. >> you are just starting to work. you can give up a couple of lattes and a hulu subscription. >> reporter: they conducted a survey of states that offer the best services for retirees, like health care or nursing homes. >> we looked at living facilities, independent living, assisted living, nursing homes. >> reporter: south dakota, iowa, minnesota currently top their

day long onshore push of marine air, thatjf coupled with cloudst times, shower chances across the north bay, maybe around the santa cruz mountains combine to keep our temperatures down for monday. so a medium to light jacket coming to the afternoon. for the morning low 50s. look at the lunch time temperatures, upper 50s to low 60s, even at noon. so temperatures running cool tomorrow. upper 60s in san jose. instead of the mid to upper 70s we typically see this time of year. north bay, temperatures in the 60s. napa and santa rosa, a few spots have a chance of a few showers tomorrow afternoon and around the tri valley and the interior bay, numbers close to 70 degrees, brentwood one of the warmer spots. this is a reason why temperatures can't warm up a whole lot. area of low pressure,
increasingivity will around ting lift. you see another area here popping up, maybe around the highway 17 summit for the afternoon. but you see the higher concentration of showers. areas north of santa rosa. and up towards napa, you can see the highest rain totals. lesser totals back into the central bay area. if are' going to head to the high country, south lake tahoe and yosemite. may see high elevation snow at times with some of these systems as we go through the week. look at the daytime high. san francisco low to mid-60s through most of the week. a bit warmer for thursday and friday for all locations, including san jose. as we head toward memorial day
weekend, here comes another area ofly fre low pressure. high pressure trying too build back inland held at bay by the low pressure. the two canceling each other out for next weekend. even the warming trend finally puts us back to average temperatures around the bay area. so no signs of heat, but ongoing chances of seeing showers in the mountains through the week. back to you. thank you very much. grizzly bears making a big come back. but the very fact that they're thriving could soon put them in danger. how could that be? we'll explain next. a scare out on the ocean.
