5:00 on tuesday morning. already october 24th. we are a week away from halloween. look at the orange glow. right? very nice. golden gate bridge in san francisco this morning. we are looking alt possible record temperatures in san francisco. it might hit 90 degrees. kari's closet is getting out the bikini. i'm laura garcia. >> i'm marcus washington. the bay area could shatter the temperature records. we have been looking at this. it gets scary. it is going to be hot out there. >> it is going to be hot. we haven't had to deal with it for a while. time to crank the air conditioners back up and deal with this heat for one more day. let's talk about the records and where we may be setting records. livermore, the forecast is 90. the record is 91.
we may stay just below the record. we may tie it in san jose. santa rosa may set a new record along with napa and oakland. san francisco will be very close. we'll see if we hit that 90 degree mark. we'll talk about this and the cooldown for the weekend. mike, a truck is having trouble near the carquinez bridge. >> yeah. we'll look at the speed sensors. tuesday, a late start out of the altamont pass and slowing in eastern livermore. across the carquinez bridge, blocking the connecter at highway 29 through vallejo. sounds like a flat tire on one of the many tires for the tractor trailer. we'll track this. hopefully they can move it quickly. traffic to the bay bridge, we give you the live look. we have a cash lane starting to back up now. all cash lanes just opened for business. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. another scare in the sky and
the ground at san francisco international. >> yeah, this morning, laura, the audio recordings of the communications between air traffic controllers and pilots of the same airline that almost cause a disaster on the runway months ago. "today in the bay's" bob redell has recordings as well as the last ditch efforts on everyone on the runway. bob, these are recordings we have obtained overnight. >> reporter: good morning to you, marcus and laura. in those recordings, you can hear sfo air traffic controller order an air canada aircraft to thwart their landing. why did they fail to heed the commands? this happened sundays before 9:30. air flight 781 cleared to land on runway 28r here at sfo as the airbus 320 approached. air traffic control became worried a preceding arrival
might not clear the run way in time. they ordered air canada five times to go around. >> air canada 780, go around. air canada 781, go around. [ inaudible ] >> that's pretty evident. air canada 781 -- >> reporter: the end was hard to decipher. it was the air canada pilots acknowledging they have a radio problem. the air canada flight did land safely. faa says the preceding flight cleared the runway in time. air traffic control shined a red flashing bright light at air con da to get the plane to heed the warning. they never did heed it. they have light guns to shine different colors at aircraft when radios fail.
flashing red, which was shown on sunday night, that indicates it is not safe to land. it's a signal that is rarely used, according to an aviation expert. faa is investigating another incident that took place in july with that airline that nearly hit four other loaded passenger airlines on a taxiway. it came within 59 feet of the ground, according to a preliminary faa airport and endangered the lives of thousands of passengers. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> certainly, another scary one at the airport. glad everyone is okay. 5:04. happening today, president trump heads to capitol hill. this will be the first visit to congress to meet with lawmakers. past gatherings have been at the white house. >> tracie potts is live in washington. what's on the agenda today?

$18,000 to $2400. >> when you go down to $2400, you are whacking the heck out of the middle class. >> they are looking for money. >> reporter: money to pay for a tax cut built into the senate's budget. now, keep in mind that the senate's budget is not the budget. it's not a done deal. the house thohas to vote on tha. back to you. >> tracie potts, thank you so much. it is 5:06 right now. happening today, the murder trial continues for the man accused of killing kate steinle. yesterday, opening statements were given. for hours, jose sat quietly in court, showing little reaction to descriptions of how steinle died in july, 2015. steinle's mother closed her eyes and wiped away tears. the bullets that killed steinle
ricochet from 80 feet away. they contend he fired the gun deliberately. >> he's not interested in admitting he was there, but eventually he does and he talks and tells them what happened. what happened was an accident. >> it is about the steinle family and the incredible resolve they have shown through this entire process. we are going to do everything we can to bring this family justice. >> kate's father, jim, gave tearful testimony for ten minutes yesterday. the defense declined to ask him questions. we will have a crew in the courtroom today and send out updates. a lake county man is talking about staring down the barrel of a gun in a rampage that left two dead. the violence unfolded ned in clear lake. it shows the armed suspect walking into a convenience store after firing multiple rounds
