4:34 am
a major upset over front-runner hillary clinton despite winning with 52%, he still faces an uphill battle. >> i think that while the path is narrow and i do not deny that for a moment, i think we can pull off one of the great political upsets in the history of the united states. >> sanders is challenging clinton to a debate right here in california later this month. no word on whether she is going to take him up on it. but she will be back in the bay area on friday for a fundraiser. at san francisco city hall, 5 hunger strikers, hundreds of protestors and no mayor in sight. kpix 5's joe vazquez shows us the rowdiest showdown yet as demonstrators tried to talked police shootings with ed lee. >> reporter: a community meeting about police accountability was supposed to feature both the public defender and the police chief. but the chief was a no show. we're told there were security concerns. this was the scene a few hours after the mayor decided not to

4:49 am
clutter as our radar is so sensitive it's picking that up. the clouds at sfo, we'll keep an eye on the -- on the airports for the possibility of airport delays. 57 degrees in san jose. well, okay, let's look at our wind speeds right now. northwest winds at 6 miles per hour in the hayward area. 7 in redwood city. 13 in oakland. southwest winds at 17. that southwest breeze is what's making it feel so muggy outside. we'll feel a little steamy during the afternoon hours with this right here. we a cutoff low that will continue to enhance our marine layer so we have that fog. we'll have some partly cloudy skies well inland, just some sunny breaks and then we continue to see more clouds from today all the way through saturday. this is the area of low pressure right here. it is cut off from the jet stream itself, which is bringing in that southerly flow and the precipitation from the south. any kind of rain showers we see from the system because it's so disorganized will be very minimal at best.
4:50 am

4:52 am
like this. really nice. we're not seeing any delays across the san mateo bridge. right now, if you are traveling out of hayward towards foster city, it will only take you 13 minutes for your drive time. once you get towards 101, traffic is pretty light in both directions. taking a look at the golden gate bridge, i just watched the zipper truck do the lane changes a couple of minutes ago. right now you can see traffic is moving pretty nicely on that southbound side as you head out of marin into san francisco. if you plan on traveling from 580 down to the golden gate bridge toll plaza, a 14-minute drive time there. extra volume westbound 580 out of tracy. looks pretty good from the altamont pass to 680. that's a look at your morning driving every drive. back to you. move over big wheels, kid driving toys are getting an upgrade. radio flyer will begin shipping these mini tesla model s cars for kids. it's the first ride-on car that uses lithium ion battery technology. how fancy. and it comes with the same high- end features as the real teslas including working headlines,
