6:37 am
pilots getting the drone for the first time, learn about the drone and learn about responsible flying before you put the drone in the air. >> so, while the new rules require more of hobby pilots, commercial operators like farmers are relieved. they can skip the process of learning an airplane pilot's license. they say the technology is crucial for detecting leaks in irrigation systems and keeping tabs on acres of crops. operating without a license means fines of $1,100 per violation. anne makovec, kpix 5. a rough start to the week in parts of western pennsylvania after a big rainstorm brought flooding and power outages. several cars were submerged by flash flooding in pittsburgh after floodgates failed to work properly. police and emergency workers had to use tow ropes to rescue people from the vehicles. parts of florida are bracing for a potential

6:44 am
company will face challenges. the economy is showing growth. in july spending was up .3 of a percent, a little slower than the prior month but continued a positive trend. incomes were actually a little bit bigger in july than the prior month and growing at a faster rate, too. that is a big key. we see strong hiring but wage growth is sluggish. that weighed on inflation, a key thing for the federal reserve as they consider the next rate increase. stock market off to a positive start. the big board, how we are doing. the dow gaining over 70 points in the early going nasdaq up 15 and the s&p is higher by eight points. michelle and kenny, back to you. >> jason brooks, thank you. time is 6:44. a check on the roads with roqui. it has been a tough morning. >> it has been. the fire you were talking about, sixth street is closed.

it was sixth and minna. take 5th street. it goes in both directions as an alternate. the altamont pass out of tracy, westbound about 45 minutes through there on to the dublin interchange and the sunol grade heading west there is a lot of heavy track here. southbound 680 near androtti road there were three crashes before but this is the only one that hasn't been cleared. five car crash. cars driving 19 miles per hour and traffic is backed up past the dublin interchange. here is a live look at that as well. altamont pass to 680 westbound about 20 minutes. peninsula southbound 101 at highway 92 a crash on the shoulder there. not causing too many delays. but here is the slow moving san motorcyclist bridge 880 to 101 westbound about 20 minutes. roberta, it's looking hazy. >> it is. everybody in the east bay
6:46 am
should stay home. snuggle in bed and throw the blanket back over your head. that's what it looks like outside. gray conditions. particular starting the last week of august. low clouds, areas of fog. sfo delays one hour on some arriving flights. currently it's mild out the door. 55 for the cool spot in santa rosa. 60 san jose. winds are picking up slightly. 111 san francisco. 1 -- 11 san francisco. 12 sfo. westerly in pleasanton at 8. up to the fairfield area, 12 miles per hour. these winds will be westerly 10 to 20 during the afternoon. then it will clear out the atmosphere. good air quality. you will be able to see the diablo mountain range. pristine conditions. smoke and haze at the moneterey bay area. we have the low clouds and fogs at the coast penetrating the bay past the tri-valley.
6:47 am
concord overcast. morgan hill you see the gray skies. santa rosa a little clearing there and rockaway beach a hint of sunshine. this is what is interesting. look at this. what i will do is call in the other satellite and radar so you can get a look at this plume of moisture. we have a glitch, a hiccup in the radar about there. otherwise this is all blowoff from a top call storm -- tropical storm named madeline. it will nick the north bay producing a slight chance of dry lightning. no rain showers, just dry lightning. we will keep a watchful eye on that. computer models are just alluding to that slight chance. low 80s in the high sierra. 84 ukiah. 6:38 is the sunrise. by the time it sets 60s beaches. of the 70s peninsula. into the 80s inland area.
6:48 am
livermore you should be around 91, 92 today. instead only low 0s. look at -- low 80s. look at that, a benign weather pattern each day as we slide into the holiday weekend. >> roberta, thank you. talking politics, the presidential campaign returning to the bay area with donald trump arriving for a pair of pricing fundraisers. >> with more we are joined by melissa cane. good morning. >> great to be here in the bay area. last week hillary clinton held two fundraisers and today donald trump will be here for his first bay area fundraiser. reportedly he will be on the peninsula for an event during the day we don't know the exact locations but often democrats and rens don't want the address known ahead of time. we know generally where he will
6:49 am
be, not specifically yet. the last few times trump was in the bay area things did not go smoothly. in april he came to burlingame for the california state republican convention. you may call there were so many protestors at the front door that he had to go through a backdoor and walk across a service door to get in. in june he held a rally in san jose and afterwards protestors attacked trump supporters. it's fair to say that trump does not have the fondest memories of his recent trips to the bay area. perhaps that will change today with things that are more low key. >> fancy and pricey fundraisers. >> what are we talking about in terms of costs and attending the fundraisers. >> like ten hamilton tickets. >> that's a lot. >> expensive. >> ticket for lunch $25,000. dinner, anywhere from 5,000 to
6:50 am
a quarter million dollars. we hear big numbers like this. trump and clinton can only accept from each person 5,400. all the rest, the other hundreds of thousands of dollars go to other funds. generally speaking, the extra money goes into two buckets. one is the national party. the other is a collection of state parties. so, for example the california republican party could get money. that's why these numbers are so big but they are not necessarily going into the trump bank account when we hear that and get jealous. >> okay. well, does he have any rallies planned for the trip. >> not so far. he doesn't have any on his schedule for california that we can see. in june he claimed that he could win california and vowed to work hard but we haven't seen that much of him. the sunlight collects information about individual fund-raising events. he had three other fundraisers in california before today.
6:51 am
to put that in context, in 201 at this point in the campaign, mitt romney hosted 21 fund- raising events in california. for a starker contrast, hillary clinton has hosted 96 events in california since april of last year when she announced her candidacy. 40% of those events were in the bay area. last week she was in california for three days and raised an estimated $19 million. of so, the bar is set high. we know there are trump supporters in the bay area. whether or not they will come with their checkbooks is a different question. >> we will see. melissa, thanks so much. a major milestone today in the efforts to bring a huge central california wildfire under control. >> people are still talking about what colin kaepernick did or didn't do on friday night. now we hear from him.
