5:16 pm
that's up 57 million, or 12%, over last year. and the tsa is doing it with 5800 fewer screeners than in 2011. but congressman buddy carter says outsourcing would solve the problem. >> i'm convinced that the private industry can do this just as well with oversight with tsa and save money and improve customer service. >> reporter: 22 airports across the nation have privatized the screening process including san francisco international airport. mark albert for cbs news, arlington, virginia. if you are heading to the beach this memorial day weekend you may want to steer clear of one bay area beach that was just deemed the dirtiest in california. cowell beach in santa cruz is on top of the heel the bay's beach bummer -- "heal the bay"'s beach bummer list which looks at water quality. they say it's so polluted that people shouldn't even touch it. other bay area beaches on the

5:18 pm
average. we'll be well above average the next 7 to 10 days. vallejo tonight 52. san jose 51. san francisco 53. plan on a little bit of cloud cover near the water but i think you stay clear inland and here's the summertime pattern. wind from the northwest, san mateo county, san francisco, the onshore flow stays there. so you will not have your temperatures move at all. you will stay in the low 60s. away from the water only 30 or 40 miles away, it's more of a north to northeast wind. an offshore wind or very limit onshore flow. and it will be much warmer. we certainly will see a scenario this weekend. we'll have a couple of up 50s at the beach but likely the low 90s toward antioch and napa. so sunny warm weekend for all. a ridge of high pressure is actually closer and stronger than we first thought. so rather than topping out at the mid-80s, some of you away from the water will hit the low 90s for all three of your holiday weekend days. so tonight, watch out for some fog and low cloud cover anywhere near the water.
5:19 pm
we'll all be warmer tomorrow compared to today except at the beach. temperatures above average for the entire weekend. >> we will see a few isolated 90s inland. most of the bay area is in the 80s or cooler but some spots between 90 and 92. warmest day memorial day. as we head towards middle of next week, a little bit of cooling but certainly mother nature is right on time. that summer feel and summertime temperature spread here just in time for the weekend. >> going to feel great. >> really nice. >> thanks, paul. it's do or die for the "dubs" tonight. we're live on the court at oracle arena as the warriors take on the thunder next. >> but first, stocks mixed today. warriors

5:24 pm
the home crowd is going to try to give it to them. >> get back to normal tonight. get our swag back. >> they know what they have to do. i don't think they will let us down. >> the crowd has to bring it tonight. none of this whine and cheese stuff. we have to to be saginaw type draymond green as fans tonight. we need to bring it early on. >> reporter: bring it early. that's what the fans hope to do here tonight. oracle has started to fill up. we saw the team warming up earlier. it is do or die so they get the win here tonight, and they continue on in the series. they don't get it and it's going to be the end. so really hoping they can pull it out. live at oracle arena, christin ayers, kpix 5. uncharted waters for bay area hockey fans. >> for the first time in history, the san jose sharks are headed to the stanley cup finals! >> the sharks beat st. louis 5-
