highway 4. looking at the bottom of a screen, crash on 87 and slowing that did clear to the shoulder. this exclamation point is part of our next big story. the slowdown continues to build, the motorcycle crash blocks your two left lanes at hillcrest, westbound highway 4, jammed up from about laurel and building coming out of antioch and that is an issue also the brentwood area but the deal is that injuries sounds like they're at least not so severe that they couldn't move the motorcycle rider. the rider was sitting in the back of a pickup nearby. the rest of the bay approach toward the bay bridge moves smoothly, a crash moved to the shoulder at the toll plaza. we'll check on that next. a man is clinging to life after a brutal stabbing at a south bay gas station. >> it happened right off of highway 17 and campbell. kris sanchez there right now. kris, anything new from police this morning? >> reporter: well, it looks like they're starting to wrap up their crime scene investigation here at the shell gas station.
you can see them picking up some of their investigative tools there, but they did have 3-d cameras capturing the scene and we've seen surveillance cameras on the buildings so perhaps they're looking at video from that as well. investigators have been here for hours at the gas station off east hamilton off highway 17, a pretty buzzy csy corridor. after 1:00 a man was stabbed here. the overnight attendant saw the whole thing happen, said that man was stabbed nef ebed severas he was near the gas pumps. the victim was transported to the hospital. we don't know his specific condition this morning. campbell police have not told us whether or not they have a description of the suspect but if you were in this area around the 1:00 hour this morning and you saw something, you should give campbell police a call. in campbell, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> kris, thank you. new overnight for you, uk prime minister boris johnson is asking the queen to temporarily
suspend parliament. opponents see this move as an attempt to make it harder for lawmakers who want to thwart the prime minister's plan for brexit. that deadline for britain to leave the european union is october 31st. the news has sent the pound falling. so far the buckingham palace is declining to comment. back here in the bay area, today marks one month since the deadly mass shooting at the gilroy garlic festival. three people were killed when a gunman opened fire in christmas hill park. the gunman later killed himself. the city council approved a temporary memorial at the location of last month's mass shooting. there are plans the council approved, the 30-foot palm tree in christmas hill park will be draped with blue prayer flags and a split rail fence with 16 posts, one more every person injured in the attack. there will be three boulders to represent the victims. the mem legal will include an

the victim identified him from the condo attack video, but investigators now believe he was living in southern california at the time. new for you this morning, antioch is looking to fix the homeless crisis within its borders. the city council is considering hiring what they call a special coordinator to look into fixes such as overnight rv parking, tiny home communities, and renting out motel rooms to the homeless. at the same meeting last night, the city council gave itself a raise, starting in 2020, they'll start earning roughly $1600 a month. for the last 12 years they made about $940 a month. the last pay raise was approved in 2006. >> it's 6:05. neighbors rattled after the discovery of a homemade pipe bomb in theine. i bomb squad from walnut creek was called from martinez to dismantle it, after martinez police say it was sitting in a front yard on wayne street. police also say they've been to that house a number of times. neighbors say there have been

east bay steve berman of three steves winery in livermore tells us his pinot noir grapes are ready to be harvested but he says this year has been a bit challenging because late rains knocked off some of the blooms, and the quality of those grapes on the other hand -- >> the taste is outstanding. i'm very excited to see what we're going to get. some of the later grapes to come in are cabernet sauvignon, which some of these grapes are. they took longer to change colors, where it goes from the greenish color to the red skin and so that suggests we're a little bit behind this year but we've had a few hot days and we're up for a few more hot days so it might turn into a great growing season. >> local clergy will bless the grapes later this morning in livermore to kick off the wine harvest. >> you see, kari, a lot of times we're complaining about the heat but hey, somebody's enjoying it. >> the grapes really get sweet in some high heat and also my garden is doing pretty well in this heat. so it's been good for some, but just getting out the door this
morning, it is already warm and you feel that humidity, we're at 63 in livermore right now, as well as 63 in oakland, and we talk about the wine harvest over the next few days in the tri-valley. it's going to be pretty hot out there today with some low 90s, but then we'll drop it back a few more degrees, headed into the next couple of days. let's go hour by hour for all of our microclimates. we take you to lunch time. concord is at 84. we're at 83 in cupertino and san francisco at 69 degrees. mid 80s for the south bay, while we start to see low 90s in the tri-valley. antioch at 88 degrees and hitting the low 90s for today, but we're not going to have the weather that's been so hot to start out the week. it's starting to come down and i'll have a look at that and what else is ahead coming up in a few minutes. mike, you're checking up on the bay bridge toll plaza. >> there were reports of a fender bender but one of the vehicles involved in that was a big rig, so that will be over on the shoulder, the right
shoulder. some spectator slowing undoubtedly. the cash lanes off to the left approach between the fastrak and hov lanes are lightening up. this is typical about this time of morning, we'll see it pack in over the next 20 minutes likely. all of the folks coming down off the upper east shore freeway. the backup on the left lanes will be fed by the maze and that shows more slowing as well. we still have this issue west highway 4 slow from laurel past the antioch bridge, hillstres, left two lanes blocked by the motorcycle crash. concord shows a build. the south bay, the tri-valley and the peninsula all moving nicely. there is a crash reported on the peninsula highway 101 around peninsula avenue. we'll get more updates. i'll let you know what's going on up there, coming up. back to you. >> 6:09. still ahead, move over, boys. >> pickup date from the women's soccer star whose long field

facebook says it will crack down harder on political ads. not only do they want to know who is paying for them, facebook will demand tax i.d. ahead of the 2020 presidential elections. i'd be surprised if you knew who this guy is but he's stirring up washington. he's william dudley. he used to be the vice chairman of the federal open markets committee, the group that decides interest rates. he suggested the fed not order lower rates to hurt president trump's chances of winning in 2020. he says this is a legitimate idea because the fed is supposed to protect the american economy. and he says trump is hurting it. in an op-ed published in bloomberg he wrote "trump's re-election arguably presents a threat to the u.s. and global economy to the fed's independence and its ability to achieve employment and inflation on objectives." he argues the fed has a responsibility to stop trump from being reelected.
it's exactly the kind of political fight the fed is trying to avoid. the current fed governors were quick to distance themselves from this wild idea. peloton bike filed the paperwork for an ipo. the exercise bikemaker or clothing rack maker depending how you use it, will trade on the nasdaq. the company is worth billions. a thought this was interesting our consumer reporter chris chmura was tweeting about the safety video from japan airlines, different from american safety briefings. warnings about this guy, don't take your luggage with you when you go out onto the slide. then causes all these problems. you remember that crash in moscow in may that caught fire, the plane did, after a bumpy emergency landing. video showed people exiting with their luggage and there was the entire possibility -- people died on that flight. there is the possibility that some of that was people getting their luggage. >> exactly, because other people behind them couldn't get off. >> which is insane.
>> people have that instinct to grab their stuff. >> an interesting "new york times" article about the psychology when you've lost all control, you do stupid stuff. stop and think. >> 6:15 right now. two-time world cup soccer champion carli lloyd appears to be kicking her way into the nfl. maybe if she accepts a possible opportunity from an unidentified team to join the roster. the offer comes after this video of her at the philadelphia eagle practice last week went viral showing her connecting from 55 yards out. what a kick. if she agreed to that deal, the last set of reseason games take place tomorrow night. we'll see. >> i hope so see that. it would be nice to see history. >> quite a boot. >> right now we want to look at what we can expect, the sunrise behind us looking beautiful. what can we expect today? >> it's going to be another warm day for the inland areas but
cool for the coast and we are all going to see a very nice sunrise. so get the camera ready and you can post the pictures on my facebook or twitter pages. let's check it out from dublin, here is a look at our camera there as the sun comes up over the hills and it's all because we are feeling a little bit more humidity in the air. we'll be at about 62 degrees at 7:00, going from 62 to 65 at k so for some of the later commuters, it is going to be very mild. no need for a jacket this morning and it's going to be heating up again today reaching 89 degrees in east san jose, and 88 degrees in gilroy. the temperatures are lower than when we started the we. we were in triple digits. today in concord reaching 91, that's still warm when you factor in it's going to feel very muggy outside. san francisco 69 degrees is the high along the embarcadero and
sonoma today reaching 83 degrees. high pressure is moving away, that's causing the heat to back off but we're also drawing in more of the tropical clouds and the higher humidity from the remnants of what was the tropical storm ivo. as we go through the rest of the day, there may be storms firing up over the sierra, but we're going to see more clouds. by the end of the week we see the storm system approaching the pacific northwest and for us, that changes the wind flow. makes us feel a little bit better. as we check out our temperatures for the inland areas, some of our warmer spots reaching the upper 80s. mid 80s tomorrow and drier by the end of the week into the weekend. saturday is a nice day to get outside with some mid 80s and for san francisco upper 60s today. a few more clouds. we'll see the fog moving by the bay and low 70s extending into early next week. mike, you are checking out the hazard lights out of hayward. >> folks check out this live
look the san mateo bridge westbound we have the hazard lights. no update from chp. they don't have the call in to their report. doesn't mean no one knows about it. bridge crew likely does. if we don't see that come up soon we may call them ourselves anyway since we are watching this. it's in the service area. the slowing on the flat section because the volume builds and getting down there may be an issue for some folks headed down through san leandro, a cash 880 southbound at the 92 interchange partially blocking your fast lane, the center lane separating both directions. that is a distraction for those headed northbound. we'll see if that effects anything that critical hayward junction there. meanwhile the dumbarton bridge moves smoothly. anywhere south of there a typical pattern whether now silicon valley. tri-valley great news over there. the slowdown westbound highway 4 that is clearing now as lanes
just cleared so recovery good recovery out of antioch. more traffic headed toward pittsburg and bay point and the crash north 101 at millbrae avenue just north of broadway is blocking one lane from what i understand. back to you. >> thanks, mike. 6:20. you think the line is long at your grocery store, you haven't seen anything yet. next and new this hour, the crazy costco opening that forced the store to shut down early. cial media, check out this ys on photo, this is scott budman, he shared it on twit he, he volunteered to help serve food at a homeless shelter. follow scott on facebook, instagram and twitter for all updates. follow us @nbcbayarea. a product arrives addressed to you, but you never ordered it. so do you have to pay for it? the federal trade comission says no. federal laws prohibit mailing unordered merchandise to consumers and then demanding payment. as for the product?

because he's in a war of words with president macron who he believes disrespected him. brazil's critics say he should focus on fighting fires, not the french. check this out, china's first ever costco store opened earlier this week but then it was forced to close early because the store grew such massive crowds it caused neighborhood traffic jams. police actually had to come in to restore order. the company even issued an apology on social media. looks like they didn't know what to do with their carts. they will work with local police to lessen the disturbance on neighbors. looks like an average busy costco. new video of the only food fight that makes news every year. how about a judy red toe may know in the kisser? it's the annual tomatina festival in the spanish town of
