sending it like a highway in the atmosphere and tracking it into the bay area in the jet stream. you saw it or smelled it this morning. [ signal breakup ] the winds are coming up from the south and it's taking the smoke to the fires burning as close as monterey county as far away as southern california and taking that smoke and transporting it right into the bay area. so lots of smoke and haze in the bay area today. as for why it's happening, well, we can see this right here. you can see the highest concentration of the smoke in the south bay and east bay. we're standing right under one of the spots in the tri-valley. that red that you see to our south and to our east, if your perspective is san francisco, that's where the highest concentration of smoke and haze is right now throughout the bay area. i want to show you something though as we look off in the distance here. you can see that the lower level mountains are clearing out. but the higher level mountains are not. there's a reason for that. the marine layer is only about 2,000 feet thick. that's a strong west wind right now sending the smoke away. but get above that marine layer, we're still stuck with

professional. this evening we're asking what's driving your vote in the upcoming presidential election. its part of our new snapshot instant survey. go to what's your top issue? the economy, national security, or immigration? you can vote using your smartphone, tablet, laptop, we are going to put the results up on the screen for you starting now. and we'll leave them up so you can monitor the numbers as they come in this evening. final results later. kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen joins us now with trump. he is hitting on the issue of of immigration in the first tv ad in the general election. he spent nearly $5 million on this 30-second spot. let's look at it. >> in hillary clinton's america the system stays rigged against americans. syrian refugees flood in. illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay collecting social security benefits, skinning the line. our border open, it's more of the same but worse. donald trump's america is secure, terrorists and
6:31 pm
dangerous criminals kept out, the borders secured, our families safe. change that makes america safe again. donald trump for president. >> i'm donald trump and i approve this message. >> very ominous music, very serious, very -- the tone. >> and yet, um, some people were thinking, you know, maybe he is going to pivot to be more presidential try to sort of bring more people over to, um, to join his campaign to vote for him. this does not to be a video aimed at swing voters. you can look at the little voting results. you can see the economy is by far the number one issue for some people followed by the national security with immigration, um, third place and so i know some people are very disappointed that trump took the opportunity right after the reset when everybody is paying attention to lead with the immigration, um, commercial instead of something about the economy or about national security [ sic ] so i think some level of disappointment there among republicans who are again still waiting, um, for that big
6:32 pm
pivot. um, some people have also noted that the ad sort of resembles an ad that ran when governor pete wilson was touting proposition 107 that people credit with the decline of the republican party in california in the deck said since then being anti-immigration. so i think generally certainly trump supporters will enjoy this. but -- but if you are not a trump supporter it's unclear if he is going to pull new with this. >> his targeted marketing, the ad is not running everywhere. the ads are targeting those key battleground states where trump has ground to make up. polls out the last week show hillary clinton is up 11 points in pennsylvania and 9 in florida, north carolina 5 points in ohio. clinton's campaign spent $60 million on ads and she has a lot more money to spend than that too. >> that is true and she is actually pulled back on some of the ads because she is ahead so far in some states. she is already reshuffling
6:33 pm
resources and say we don't need to continue to do ads in state like colorado for example. >> also we are seeing the softer side of trump. for the first time yesterday, i heard that he admitted to actually regretting some of his comments? >> he has already though clarified that [chuckling] >> let's listen to what he had to say and jump in and -- >> sometimes in the heat of debate, and speaking on a multitude of issues, you, you don't choose the right words or you say the wrong things. i have done that. and believe it or not, i regret it. >> okay. that is kind of unusual. is this a sign of a new shifted? >> well -- >> in his tone maybe in the tone of the campaign? >> that speech certainly got a lot of people excited that maybe we are going to see the more presidential donald trump. i'll tell you he has already walked back the regret comment when asked whether he had -- when asked about his apology he made very clear that that was not an apology it was an
6:34 pm
express of regret that people could sort of take however they need to and already today, he has made some statements about black voters and their support for him that, um, has offended a number of people so, uhm, it's not clear how long that trump we saw give the speech that you just showed is going to be able to continue out there, already, um, showing some, um, some signs of -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> you heard people cheer. they liked that side of him. >> certainly. people in that room are very excited. but he needs voters outside his base right now. >> thank you. ryan lockerty is apologizing today after the surveillance video raised questions about ryan lochte's story of being robbed in rio. in a statement on instagram, he said:
6:35 pm
>> gas station surveillance video allegedly shows lochte and three other swimmers the night of the incident. you can see them each enter the bathroom and then begin trashing the place. outside security guards confronted the group after seeing the damage. one had a gun. it's not clear anyone is robbed. either of way this will likely cost him sponsors likely. >> there is a very short shelf life for olympic athletes. he just fell off that shelf. do i want to give my money to katie ledecky, lochte, that's no longer a choice. >> he apparently hired a pr firm to deal with the fallout of this embarrassing international event. coming up a bay area icon older than the golden gate bridge. how it's keeping things fresh with the debut of a new treat. >> you still very april conflict minutes. weigh in on our senate shop survey. >> what issue are you

6:48 pm
temperature spread simply by having proximity to the water and that ocean breeze. san jose 73. and santa rosa currently 71 degrees. so everybody is cooling off and thankfully the air quality is improving because that marine air is cutting off the tap of low level haze and smoke. overnight tonight 50s fremont, 57 napa, 52. san francisco 55. pacific 51. sunrise 6:30 in the morning. so what's going on in the atmosphere tomorrow? we are looking at a continuation of mainly moderate air quality. it looks and sometimes smells a lot works than it was today. only the east bay had an unhealthy air quality. tomorrow, no "spare the air" day. moderate air quality top to bottom. that said, there will be some haze and smoke in the sky once again tomorrow. low pressure stays to our south. what that will do keep that tap flowing from the ocean that chilly ocean air above that chilly ocean water will continue to filter into the bay area keeping temperatures very close to average. so we'll be hazy with coast and bay fog once again tonight.
