6:18 am
this accident and debris out of the road. delays through palo alto there. northbound though, that's our commute direction. still looking good 19 minutes 92 to the 80 split. 280 also good choice this morning if you are traveling to the peninsula. it's been busy all morning through the altamont pass. the good news is we haven't had any accidents or stalled vehicles. just the usual suspects working their way out of tracy. slow-and-go out of 580. 205 connector towards grant line slow as you head towards the dublin interchange. let's talk about that forecast. it was beautiful yesterday, julie. >> it was. it's going to be beautiful again today although maybe not quite as hot as yesterday. out the door this morning, mostly clear skies with some patchy fog out there. temperatures in the 40s and 50s areawide. as we make our way through the day temperatures will be well above average once again. now, this ridge of high pressure is beginning to weaken. as it does temperatures decrease into the weekend, cooler than what we have seen the last couple of days but not significantly.
6:19 am
the storm track is returning slowly but this time it's to the north. this system is going to bring rain to the pacific northwest. unfortunately, we will stay dry. there's a slight chance maybe the extreme northern portions of our viewing area northern sonoma county maybe you might see some showers but most of us will stay dry for the foreseeable future. in fact, here's what to expect from your headlines perspective. mostly clear to start today with patchy fog. mild afternoon, with a sun/cloud mix and then slow cooling into the weekend. i think cooling might be a bit of an extreme term there. we are not going to be quite as warm. highs are still well above average for this time of the year. gradual changes in the extended forecast. we dip down to topping out near 70 by friday and saturday when
6:20 am

6:30 am
presidential primary. bernie sanders beat hillary clinton on the democratic side. his edge is 60 to 38%, with votes from 11% of the precincts still being counted. >> on the republican race, donald trump has won with 35%, john kasich in second place at 16%. he is followed by ted cruz at 12, jeb bush at 11 and marco rubio also at 11% about 1400 votes behind mr. bush. the polls predicted both winners in new hampshire but on the crowded republican side, the order of the next tier down is making things even more interesting today. >> cbs news' weijia jang joins us live from man clester new hampshire with reaction from some of the candidates. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, michelle and frank. and good morning to everybody. these were massive wins for both donald trump and bernie sanders. and that really speaks to how frustrated voters are with the current state of american politics. but it is a long road to go before the party conventions in july and you're so right!
6:31 am
it is more muddled than ever who is really going to be donald trump's fiercest competitor. after finishing first in last night's new hampshire primary donald trump has his sights set on the next major contest. >> we are going now to south carolina! we're going in win in south carolina! >> reporter: cbs news exit polls show voters in the granite state favor trump's position as political establishment outsider and overwhelmingly support his plan to temporarily ban muslims from entering the u.s. appearing on "cbs this morning," ohio governor john kasich addressed his second place victory. >> my message is real simple: whether you're republican or democrat at the beginning and at the end you should be an american working together to solve problems. >> the real winner is conservative grassroots. >> reporter: first play iowa ted cruz could regain momentum in south carolina where
6:32 am
republican voters prefer evangelicals. >> the claims is the same one he can make against donald trump which is neither are real conservatives. >> reporter: on the democratic side bernie sanders rode a wave of support from young people and independents to beat hillary clinton. >> what voters here in new hampshire confirm tonight is nothing short of the beginning of a political revolution. >> reporter: clinton's camp is banking on support among minorities to give her an edge. >> it's not whether you get knocked down that matters. it's whether you get back up. >> reporter: the two con tenners will take to the debate stage tomorrow night in wisconsin. and then the republican candidates will showdown on a debate stage in south carolina this saturday. in fact, you can watch it right here on cbs. chris christie did not qualify though. he placed sixth last night and he went back to new jersey saying he is going to take a, quote, deep breath before he
6:33 am
decides whether to drop out of the race. >> weijia, marco rubio had momentum coming out of iowa but didn't do so well in new hampshire. so what's he saying about his disainstallation 30ing showing? >> -- what's he saying about his disappointing showing? >> >> reporter: this is a big blow and missed opportunity because of the debate performance he had. it was christie who pointed out during that fight that he seemed to be regurgitating lines that is were memorized. at the time rubio denied that but last night he said the debate performance probably hurt him. and he pledged to voters that that poor performance would not happen again. >> okay. weijia jang, live in new hampshire, thank you. it is 6:33. happening today, a possible management shake-up that could change the look of california's coast. we have learned that the california coastal commission's executive director could be fired today and some commissioners say charles lester is an ineffective leader. for 40 years, the commission has tightly controlled development along the coast and
6:34 am
people have strong feelings about what a leadership change might bring. >> i'm afraid that what's happening right now is an assault on the integrity of the commission. >> they do have friends in the development business and i think they have the patience of job because it takes them forever to do their development projects. so next month the commission is set to vote on one of the largers projects ever, 1100 acres of development near newport beach. it's such a nice day julie watts is going to take to us lunch on the beach. >> a great day for it! temperatures once again above average for this time of the year. probably not quite as hot as yesterday but still, warm nonetheless. the temperatures yesterday, the records that we set and beat san francisco tied the previous record at 71. oakland beat the previous record at 70. san jose 76. santa cruz 85 degrees.
6:35 am
maybe we should head down to cruz today. really gorgeous weather out there. yes, we would like the rain, but in its absence at least we can enjoy the mild weather. you may run into a little patchy fog out there on the roads this morning. so be mindful of that. in fact, speaking of which, let's check in with the commute. >> it's busy. we have reports of a brand-new accident out of marin county southbound 101 right at novato. we have word of a vehicle stuck in the center divide. it is facing the wrong way so it's not blocking lanes but will probably cause a visual distraction through there. you can see in our sensors some yellow so speeds under 45 miles per hour on the southbound side of 101 and it gets better once you squeak by highway 37. down to the golden gate bridge not bad though from 580 down to san francisco. traffic is clear no delays there. we are still dealing with this accident 238 right at 880 motorcycle involved out of lanes on the shoulder still a
6:36 am
lot of activity on the scene traffic backed up out of castro valley five minutes there. southbound 880 slow through hayward. san mateo bridge looks like you're seeing backup there on the westbound side between 880 and 101. michelle. some rush hour relief is on the way for tri-valley drivers. new express lanes on interstate 580 open at the end of the month. they span 14 miles between dublin and livermore. you will need a special fastrak flex to use the lanes. the device can be set for a solo driver or carpool. carpoolers, van poolers and clean air vehicles get a free ride. but it will cost solo drivers as much as $13 to drive in the new lanes. using the lanes will save drivers an estimated 14 minutes during the morning commute. and 4 minutes during the afternoon rush. tragedy in the waters off san mateo county where rescuers were unable to save a man swept out to sea. it happened yesterday at sharp park beach in pacifica. kpix 5's keit do is there live
6:37 am
to explain what happened. >> reporter: good morning. you know, that high surf advisory that was in effect yesterday has expired but you couldn't tell by looking at the way that the waves are crashing here on the shoreline. nonetheless, the coroner has released the identity of the victim named larry moore and he was 60 years old. on an unusually warm february day at the beach, with no el nino storms in sight, people were in short sleeves and wandering near the pounding surf of the pacific. >> people go out there to see people surfing. >> they realize they are in trouble and don't realize it. >> reporter: around 2 p.m. the couple met the ocean's fury near the pacifica pier. >> the waves came in grabbed heard and so they were holding on to each other. took her out. the guy went in after her. >> reporter: the woman wearing a swimsuit correctly went against her natural human instincts and did not resist. >> she floated way out. i could see her head and feet.
6:38 am
>> reporter: she eventually made it back to shore. >> he, on the other hand, was trying to fight it and get back up and he actually got close to getting out like about 3 times but the wave would take him back in. >> reporter: using a long line, a coast guard rescue swimmer dropped from a helicopter into the ocean to pluck the man out and load him into an ambulance. hours later, surfers like greg enjoyed 7 to 8-foot waves hitting every ten seconds and said the beach here is not to be trifled with. >> it's 10 feet deep right there so the way it slams up on the beach the water drains off the beach and that water sucks underneath into that deep hole as the next wave comes. so it's just a cycle where people get hammered. >> reporter: and locals say if you are not an expert swimmer, probably a good idea to stay out of the waters. live at pacifica, kiet do, kpix 5. san francisco taxpayers could end up paying a million dollars in legal fees for the 10 police officers accused of sending racist and homophobic
6:39 am
text messages. in december, a judge ruled the officers could not be punished for the texts because the department waited too long. lawyers for the officers say they will file civil suits demanding the county pay their legal fees. developing news out of ferguson, missouri. the city council is pushing for several revisions to an agreement meant to revamp the city's police department and the court system. ferguson is in the spotlight since the police shooting the michael brown and because the justice department wants the agreement to stay in its original form is considering legal action against ferguson, missouri. time now 6:39. too much time staring at a screen may be bad for your eyes and sleep. how apple is hoping to reduce some of the effects. >> and the president will visit the bay area tomorrow. but this time the host city won't be quite as gracious. we'll tell you why.

6:45 am
threats are increasingly posing downside risk to the u.s. economy mainly referring to china and because of that, the pace of future rate hikes from the fed could slow down saying there is no preset policy for fed rate hikes. and there have been expectations we would see four interest rate hikes by the fed in 2016. the economists now think that will be scaled back to two at most. solarcity san mateo based sole land panel installer is having a horrible day today after reporting its earnings for the 4th quarter. its earnings in the 4th quarter were strong with revenue up 60% but current quarter installations will slow down significantly. two reasons it pulled business out of nevada after that state cut back on tax breaks and an increase on commercial projects which take longer to install. its shares are diving by 25%.
