thundershowers along with the low pressure system moving away. high temperatures, it will feel nice, a nice spring day but cooler than what we're used to. so 70 degrees in fairfield, pretty good there, upper 60s in places like concord, livermore, and along the coast. pacifica, a high of 59. that's your latest kpix weather and let's get a check of your traffic with george. i gotta get that right [laughter] thanks, elizabeth. a quiet start to your monday morning. so if you're heading out the door, no incidents to be concerned about. i mentioned an accident in the hills above woodside occurring on highway 84 at woodside near skyline boulevard, highway 35. last week, we had a similar problem in a similar location. i don't think we'll see lanes obstructed here. no reports of injuries in this accident. and tracking a delay already for interstate 580, westbound. look at the ride. it used to be highway 4, the first commute that badly backed
up 580 every day. look at the slow going from 205 out of tracy with speeds down to 20 miles per hour. the drive time, 18 minutes over the hill from the altamont pass. even with construction here through fremont on the nimitz freeway, limit speeds both directions 880 northbound and 880 southbound from milpitas to highway 237. guys? president obama continues his 3-day visit to vietnam. today, he lifted a half century old ban on selling arms to vietnam in an effort to help vietnam in the territorial dispute with china. >> with all our defense partners, sales will still need to meet strict requirements including those related to human rights. but this change will ensure that vietnam has access to the

beating trump by 9 points helped by young voters and independents. and bernie sanders supporters are showing up in big numbers as his campaign crisscrosss southern california. >> i think the objective evidence is very clear that in virtually every national poll and every state poll, we defeat trump by larger numbers than does secretary clinton. >> sanders will make stops in los angeles and santa monica today. in the mediterranean, rescue crews are doing everything they can to find the black boxes from egypt flight 804. >> reporter: an egyptian submarine is on the way to scour the sea bed looking for the data recorders belonging to

will recoil in the other direction. >> reporter: but you don't set off nuclear twices at asteriods without knowing the response. these layers are powerful enough to create a high- temperature plasma and annihilate the rock. >> the results will work into the giant cluster of computers here at livermore to inform how an asteriod would respond to the explosion. >> reporter: now, we to have more elegant options for redirecting an asteriod. the so-called gravity tracker that uses just that, gravity and maybe a piece of the asteriod itself to pull the thing into orbit but that would take perhaps several years of planning and execution. so time is short? then going nuclear would be the option in what would be a grim situation. >> we want to be prepared in the event of an emergency and
act quickly and advise decision makers to the best of our ability. >> reporter: wilson walker, kpix 5 through and the meteorites were donated specifically for this research. >> and we think of things falling from the sky, we have rain as a possibility. i like that. you're right. a chance of showers in parts of the bay and other places will see sunshine. let's show you what's going to out the door. chifly --chilly in napa and 49 in redwood city and 51 out the door in san jose. jackets are necessary if you are with to head outside right now. this is the rain shower chance that anne was mentioning. right now, it's off the coast and low pressure could move
farther this afternoon with a chance of pop-up showers later this afternoon and it will mainly stay in the north bay if we see it at all and even a chance of thundershowers even though that chance is low. noticed over the weekend, saturday, the showers? it's because of the low pressure, and it's still not budging today or tomorrow. here's a summary of what to expect, a partly cloudy start, coastal fog and afternoon clouds and partly cloudy fog for everyone and north bay showers and high temperatures, cool to mild for this time of year. we are used to seeing 80s inland but not the case today. here's a look at high temperatures for today, 67 would be the high in mountain view, and then in the north bay, 70 in napa, and 68 in novato and a high in the mid-
60s in san rafael. so grab the umbrellas or a hood. it won't be a huge wash out but the a -- chance of showers in the north bay and then a slight warming trend for the second half of the week with more sunshine and temperatures reaching into the upper 70 inland by friday. and that's your latest weather and get the updated traffic. i have to get that right. here's george. a pretty good ride around the bay area. let's start with a look at the by bridge ride westbound. there is a stall on the old upper deck, the west span of the bridge. it's near the fremont street off ramp but there is no impact and the metering lights have not been activated here. it's a 20-minute trip from the carquinas bridge. a 13-minute drive across the
san mateo bridge from hayward to foster city, a light and an easy ride, and we continue to monitor this accident in the hills above woodside where we do now have word that one of the eastbound lanes of woodside road has been closed as it approaches skyline -- excuse me, that's one of the lanes on skyline has been closed on woodside at the scene of the accident. and tracking your drive, look at the speeds, 65 miles per hour here for the ride westbound on interstate 80 all the way down from highway 4 in willow, problem free there, and we continue to look at good conditions here for the ride on the nimitz even with the construction. public transit, a quick mention, all on time, no delays. anne? kenny? >> thank you, george. plenty of young stars were on hand for the billboard music
