the parade of champions covered from every angle! jaclyn dunn and rocky theus have everything you need to know before you head out today but first less check in with jackie ward along the parade route where more fans are starting to arrive. >> reporter: people are lining up five hours before the celebration gets going but five hours is nothing compared to the dedicated fans who actually camped out overnight. we spoke to someone yesterday to planned to hang out on a patch of grass on lake merritt until noon today. >> i might get some mosquito bites or other few rodents but, um, i'm a little scared but i got these guys here to, you know, to help me and encourage me to be here for the nba champions. >> reporter: last night and early this morning city workers

5:02 am
here as well for the lines for check-in. now, we do want to remind you that there are some things security wants to you make sure you bring today if you are coming out. first, sunscreen, hats, water, of course, to stay hydrated and then of course you want to bring a backpack or purse. but there are regulations. you don't want to bring any duffel bag or suitcases. make sure your backpack and purses are relatively small or medium sized. and make sure you remember all bags including those backpacks and purses will be subject to be searched at the entrance of the rally. and signs and banners are permitted under the following guidelines. they don't want to have any signs or banners obstructing sight lines at the parade or rally. also, make sure they don't say any bad words or things of that nature. oakland police department will patrol all around downtown oakland. they will have all hands on deck. i spoke with oakland police department and there are no days off for any officers. all the deputies will be on
5:03 am
duty today securing the area. so if you are out here today, i hope you will be out here, make sure you're keeping a lookout and watching your back and the people around you, as well. make sure you're able to report any suspicious activity or items that you see throughout downtown oakland. make sure you report that to the oakland police department. back to you. >> thank you. jaclyn, you have some advice for people heading out there today. >> yes. good luck.

5:04 am
difficult. street closures are in effect. 880 through oakland, right now, not too bad. this is about the time to hit the roads and head over there. it's going to be jam-packed hour by hour as we get closer to the parade. some street closures to tell you about right now, the parade route is along broadway. it begins at broadway and 11th. it goes down to grand avenue to harrison to 19th and then right on lakeside drive and then it ends over at oak street but many surrounding streets will be closed or are already closed. they went into closures last night. so do expect delays and even when the parade wraps up and the rally is finished, there will still be those street closures many of them in effect until at least 6 p.m. tonight. so plan accordingly. that is a check of your traffic. i'll send it over to roberta gonzales for a check on the forecast. the parade steps off officially at 10:00 this morning. good morning, everyone. so we thought we would go ahead and provide you with what to anticipate. 10 a.m. low 70s so we warm up very
5:05 am
rapidly by the end of the parade as we enter the rally, 76 degrees. that's our forecast high for the oakland area under mostly sunny skies. hydrate, don't forget that hat as well or your sunglasses. good morning, we're taking a look out from the embarcadero in an easterly direction towards the bright lights of oakland and the port of oakland this morning where currently we're off to a mild start. this is another view from the transamerica pyramid. oakland sporting 57 degrees. it is 58 now in redwood city. in the low 50s in santa rosa. later today we're talking about numbers unseasonably warm away from the bay. 76 oakland, berkeley, emeryville, back through richmond. high 70s in fremont, union city and milpitas. but notice the numbers jump to the east and to the north. high 80s and low 90s. 70s and 80s across the peninsula. 84 degrees in san jose when your average high is 79. so again we're talking about the parade of champions today

5:08 am
killed three coworkers then turned the gun on himself. it triggered a "shelter in place" for the potrero hill neighborhood and hundreds of u.p.s. employees fled as panic spread. sfpd says the gunman shot himself in the head as soon as they made contact. this morning, we're learning more about the victims who died. if you see on your screen, pictured here are 50-year-old san francisco resident benson louie and 46-year-old hercules resident michael lefiti. 56-year-old wayne chan also died in the shooting. two other victims were taken to the hospital and police say several people were hurt trying to escape. >> i started screaming get out, get out, gunshots, gunshots, gunfire, go, go, go, everybody started running. >> reporter: police say it's unclear if the shooter knew his victims but what we have learned in the past day is that he filed a grievance with his company. he felt like he was being overworked but, of course, police are still working to determine the motive.
5:09 am
many workers showing up here today. there's a u.p.s. truck crossing me as i'm speaking so people are coming to work. obviously, it's a very difficult time for them as police still on scene here investigating. reporting live i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. the man accused of shooting an east bay church statue will formally be charged today. police arrested 34-year-old eric mullen of san leandro after reports of shots fired at [name] church on saturday. officers found evidence that a statue on the property had been damaged by gunfire. he faces multiple charges including vandalizing religious property and resisting arrest. time now is 5:09. the u.s. military is poised to join the fight against wildfires in california this season. >> and after years of contentious debate, the uncertainty surrounding the delta tunnel project may soon come to an end. >> here we go!

who made sure that they got up here bright and early. they are so ready to go. the city of oakland is ready to host what's presumably going to be its biggest parade ever with an estimated 1.5 million people trying to find a place along the route to catch a glimpse of their champs. one family caught up with yesterday says he was the warriors' towel boy for the we believe team. he wanted to be the very first one in line for today's rally. a few minutes ago we spoke to someone on the first bart train out of fremont this morning and for him, the party has already started. >> we forgot to bring chairs and we have as you said a couple of hours to go. trying not to think about that. so finding the best spot right now. >> reporter: go find a bar or cafe, whatever suits you. >> if a bar is open -- if you can point me in the direction of a bar right now, i'm more than happy to head that way. [ laughter ] >> reporter: so as we have been telling you get here early because a lot of the barricades will prevent from you going on streets that usually have
5:35 am
access to. and my photographer pointed out concrete barriers as we drove over here, probably for security after new york and london. roqui theus has a list of things of what not to bring to the parade. right? >> reporter: i hope you're staying warm over there. it is a little cold out here. but that's not stopped security from coming out here overnight. they started at 9:30 p.m. last night. so they are out here already. we have crews for check-in. this is the line as floats and people participating in the parade will come and get themselves credentials and checked in for the event. now, today, security and oakland pd have warned us that this will be a huge event up to 2 million people will be in attendance so of course that means a lot of fun and people to enjoy the parade with but, of course, also some concerns, as well. so what not to bring to the
5:36 am
event. the warriors have provided some guidelines for that. let's start with thermoses and coolers. this is not a picnic. this is a parade. so be careful with that. you will be turned away. glass containers or cans, lawn furniture or umbrellas, no folding chairs, of course, no alcoholic beverages or weapons of any kind. no polls, sticks or brooms, including yourselfie stick so be aware of that. i know you want to take selfies but you have to get creative. no selfie sticks. laser pointers, scooters, bicycles, fireworks of course and this one is interesting. no drones. and, in fact, security will have rogue drone detection systems in place so they are getting creative with their security today. so make sure that if you see any suspicious activity or items around downtown oakland as you come out here to enjoy the parade, you report it to oakland pd. oakland pd says it will be all hands on deck. this is not a day off for any
5:37 am
deputy. they will all be here patrolling the area. all right. i'm live in downtown oakland. i'm roqui theus. back to you guys. >> thank you. we are expecting 500,000 more people than 2015. >> crazy! >> it's going to be jam-packed. >> 15 people deep all along the parade route. >> mass transit may not be much fun? >> definitely the best way to get there because of traffic and parking. 880 is starting to get crowded this morning. more than typical along the nimitz freeway but we're still in good shape there.
5:38 am
use bart. that's what they are recommending. they have added additional trains. for those heading out of fremont and warm springs, they have every other train is dedicated solely to going to the parade and then it turns right back around and goes down and picks up more. so that's what many stations are doing. also, avoid using the small lake merritt station. use 12th and 19th street stations. if you buy your tickets in advance you can avoid the long lines and parking again, very limited. if you can get a ride to bart and get dropped off that's going to be your best bet. and also, just hope the crowds get through the area when you board that train. move and remove. mean moves to the center of the train and remove all backpacks so they can get as many people in the trains and off to the parade as possible. for the train schedules, they're not going to be operating on the normal schedules. they don't even have them
5:39 am
posted. you're going to have to be alert and listen for announcements because if certain stations get crowded they are not going to stop at that station. they are going to take you to the next station. so definitely pay attention. that's a check of your mass transit. i'm going to send it over to roberta gonzales. >> thank you. the golden state warriors are the 2017 nba champions! so they will have a victory parade throughout oakland today and your forecast calls for low 70s at 10 a.m. when the parade steps off. and by the rally time, at high noon, mid-70s. it's a long time to be standing out in the sun with not much of a breeze and no shade so please be prepared. hydrate, wear a hat, sunglasses. and have a terrific time! the weather is going to be fantastic! there's the view from san francisco looking past yerba buena island towards the east bay. speaking of the east bay, one of our weather watchers from discovery bay sent in this photograph. that's gorgeous. not a cloud in the sky. this time around looking north.
5:40 am
north bay gorgeous. we have some of the coolest temperatures right now in the north bay. santa rosa at 51. certainly not as cool as 24 hours ago. it's in the 50s in redwood city. same oakland livermore san francisco and san jose. morning to you at 56. going up to a high there today of 84. unseasonably warm north and east today. northwest winds 10 to 20. coast in the 60s. full forecast at 48 after the hour. but right now, let's send it back to you. the parade of champions is just a few hours away. you can watch it live right here on kpix 5 starting at 9:30 this morning. we are in the heart of wedding season but some happy couples are giving a little thought to a breakup scenario. cbs news business handle list jill schlesinger is here to tell us why prenups are unromantic and important. this is a little tricky.
5:41 am
so what is a prenup and who should consider using one? >> reporter: i have to be considered the biggest buzz kill in june i have to admit that now. a prenup is a legal contract that outlines how couples would split up their financial lives in the event that the relationship doesn't work out. it usually outlines what each brings to the marriage, how they would manage future family gifts or inheritances. now, you might think of a prenup as something for the super rich. but that's really not the case. they are quite popular with those who have been married previously or had children from a prior relationship. with small business owners, and for those who are actually not legally married but clues to live together. now, in that last case, a lawyer can draft something called a no-nup and it can be good for real estate transactions and estate planning. >> my husband and i didn't have much when we married. so it worked.
5:42 am
any more tips? >> reporter: you have to approach the topic without sounding like a jerk. and having the conversation at the right time is key. you don't want to blurt it out in the middle of a fight or night or days leading up to the wedding. so attorneys advise that the earlier the conversation occurs, the better. open up the dialogue by saying, hey, i'd like to discuss how i and you can both feel protected in the event that the relationship doesn't last. now, if you get any resistance, don't push the conversation. back off. make a plan to revisit it. i know it's really not romantic but it can really save a ton of time in the future and a lot of heartache. so to learn about more about prenups go to don't leave me a comment that i'm unromantic. i know i am. >> no, but you're very -- it's functional information. we need it. >> that's right. [ laughter ] >> all right. jill schlesinger thank you. it is 5:42.
