next week. summer is clearing its throat by then. here is a live look at the bay bridge. a touch of the fog has come across our region. click clearing on the fog yesterday. there comes the fog overnight and it will repeat that clearing process again fairly rapidly. as far as temperatures we are in the 50s about everywhere. santa rosa at 54, we can shave off a few degrees just before sunrise so this is not set in stone. oakland up to about 60 at 8 am and noon reaching around 70 and 73 by 2:00. here is the warm-up off to the central valley that is where the numbers will be baking. a little relief for the east bay shoreline and warming from yesterday.
4:02 am
the weekend looks like warming up a bit for saturday, a slight break on sunday before a big spike next week. here is the next eight hours. about 78 for the inland regions, further inland the temperatures will spike again. first look at traffic. let's head over to the bay bridge. the ride into san francisco is looking good. a live look at traffic on 580 w. approaching the toll plaza. still nice and quiet all the way into downtown san francisco. also a good ride 92 across the san mateo bridge. traffic is moving really good. no major trouble spots. tracking your ride on the 101 across the golden gate is a good ride and taking a look through the east bay if you need to get over the east shore
4:03 am
freeway is doing fine the yellow and orange is a false return. 580 macarthur also looking good and >> this is not a decision i have taken lightly, but i believe it is in the national interest out of fear and stability and the new leadership required. there is no need for a precise timetable today, but in my view we should aim to have a new prime minister in place by the start of the conservative party conference in october. delivering stability will be important and i will continue this post as prime minister with my cabinet for the next three months. >> with a little more of 51% the united kingdom has decided to leave the european union. it is the first country to vote to leave the union and as you just heard british prime minister has announced he will
4:04 am
resign as a result of the vote adding britain will have a new prime minister before october. the british pound has crash to its lowest level in 31 years. pre-vote surveys predicted 64% of voters supported staying in the european union. donald trump in scotland this morning he was there for the grand opening of a new golf course and tweeted this, "just arrived in scotland, place is going wild over the vote. they took their country back just like we will take america back. no games." and had this to say. >> i think it is a great thing. it is an amazing vote very historic. people are angry all over the world. they are angry over people
4:05 am
coming into the country and taking over. basically they took back their country. >> describing it as a great thing. now let's hear from the head of the uk independence party who was leading the campaign to withdraw from the european union. >> the biggest change is not what is happening in the united kingdom it is what's happening across the european union. we now see in denmark, the netherlands and even italy 50% of those populations want to leave the european union. >> those who wanted to stay are not going out without a fight. they have begun a petition to have a second referendum. more than 65,000 people have signed a petition calling for a second referendum. the markets this morning, the ripple affects our global. wall street reacting as well. let's give you a quick look at how the brexit is having an impact on the british pound.
4:06 am
it has dropped to a 31 year low the pound. at the time the markets closed the leading theory was that people in the uk would vote to stay in the eu and that is why we had the dow gaining 230 points yesterday. nasdaq was relatively flat. now fast forward to this morning and in the wake of the news to withdraw from the eu dow is down 590 points the nasdaq down hundred and 95 and the s&p down 87. we may be seeing some steep declines at opening this morning. the question now is what happens next. as we said there is no precedent for this. erin mclaughlin takes a look at the process. >> reporter: it is official the
4:07 am
uk will become the first country to leave the 28 country block and the separation could be messy and difficult taking at least two years probably more. first the uk invokes article 50 of the eu treaty which outlines the process for a country to leave. it is only five sections long but those hold the key to the uk's future and how it is interpreted by both sides will make a world of difference. once article 50 is invoked the negotiations began on treaties and trade deals, everything from fishing to financial markets and immigration. each member state will have their say on every single subject. it will be a complex negotiation. the uk has two years to negotiate its exit and after that it could be unceremoniously kicked out of the eu unless all remaining member states agreed to ekstrand that deadline --
4:08 am
extend that deadline. scotland has already hinted that it may call its own independent vote so that it can join the eu. the only certain thing about a brexit is that no one knows what will happen. >> you can expect president. obama will have some thoughts on this and he may very well share them today while he is in the bay area. he is at an entrepreneurial summit this morning and we will expect them to reflect on this latebreaking news. locally there will be implications for the present been in town. a lot of logistics around the motorcade. here's what you need to know. >> reporter: drivers have been sitting in bumper to bumper traffic for hours thursday night in san francisco's summit

4:10 am
hour. we will have more on that in a bit. other headlines, chaos in congress as the house and senate democrats battle to get a vote on gun control measures. after 24 hours the democrats ended their occupation of the senate floor and say the fight is not over. some movement in the senate, the bill would block people on the no-fly list from getting guns, but give them an appeals process to challenge the denial. many republicans say this does not guarantee due process rights and they are supporting a gop measure that would keep guns out of terrorist hands by requiring the justice department to go to court to do it. here in california an initiative to toughen control laws the proposal by the lieutenant governor will go to a vote in november and if approved it would make some big changes to the current gun laws and here are some of those changes. owners would be required to turn in magazines with a capacity of 11 rounds or more.
4:11 am
the measure dubbed safety for all would streamline a program to allow police to seize firearms from owners who brought them legally but are not allowed to own them. california would require background checks at the point- of-sale for ammunition. >> it is interesting to me that we talk about background check on guns, but not ammunition. let's remember the vast majority of homicides are committed with people that do not register their guns. they have them illegally, but they legally purchased ammunition. it is allowed us the opportunity to potentially capture those folks from purchasing that ammunition if they have felonies or they are dangerous. >> as we mentioned this is sponsored by gavin newsom. he is running for governor in 2018 and made gun control want of the centerpieces of his campaign. we will take a quick break. even on vacation work can come

5:02 am
>> the british people have made a choice. that not only needs to be respected, but those on the losing side of the argument, myself included, should help to make it work. >> so david cameron says he will stay on as prime minister over the next couple of months but expects that his successor will be chosen by october. at that point britain will start the messy process of detainingeling itself from the european union. officially in the meantime, though, the status quo will remain in effect. reporting live in washington, i'm scott mcclain. and we're of course watching the reaction on wall street. what you're looking at here are the numbers where the markets closed yesterday. and at the time, the leading thought was that britain would vote to stay within the european union. that's why we had the dow gaining. but this morning, the dow futures are down by more than 500. nasdaq down 165. s&p down 78 points. so that indicates to us we're looking at a very steep decline when the opening bell rings at

5:14 am
. we're back time now 5:13 as we take a look at some national weather headlines from around the country. severe thunderstorms led to some heavy rain and flash flooding in virginia. you can see here just how bad the situation was. authorities are desperately searching for a young boy who was swept away by the high waters yesterday. it's all happening about 80 miles north of roanoke and the worst isn't own. in fact, the national weather service there could be record flooding of the jackson river. it's expected to crest at 23.5 feet. emergency officials in this area are urging people who will live there to get to higher ground now before the -- the water runs over the banks. the last time the jackson river flooded this much was back in 1985 when the water level reached 23.3 feet. so again, the situation pretty bad out there with all that deep water. >> i leave the country and the world goes to pot. we've got eu stuff happening,
5:15 am
rain and crazy weather nationwide. >> welcome back. >> i'm sorry. >> what did you say to them over there? >> they were like, we're out of here. >> okay. so anyway, we talked about aul the rape, james was talking about in virginia. now you can see from this blob of clouds in southeastern tennessee a heavy squall line on. the general idea with when a drive home is basically outlining a front that's dropping over the east coast and it's somewhat typical. you have a trough in the east and i have a high in the west no kidding with all the heat we've been having. our temperatures 50 pretty much. half moon bay, you've got 54. 57 san jose. livermore at 55. we're looking still for temperatures in the far reaches of the far inland areas to still reach around 90 or so. but many locations in the east bay will probably stay in 80s territory for today. there's the big warm up you see. stockton and central valley. we're still kicking on that a
5:16 am
little bit of that on shore flow we've been talking b less of a factor tomorrow probably. 66 today. downtown san francisco, twin peaks you're looking at a pair of 67's. half moon bay coming in about a 61 pacifica at 64. still reflecting the onshore flow program. now we go to the southwest. here's the bubbling up of still the hot stuff. you can see a little bit more dented as you'll notice. that's because of that flow pattern we talked about this trough up in the northwest that's providing the onshore flow. enough to continue to shave off a few of those nasty degrees from our standpoint. but again, by saturday, because the positioning of all of that, we won't have that influence as much. and up go those temperatures ever so slightly for saturday. backing off a little bit or sunday before we start to respike again. let's go ahead with your planning forecast as it lines up hoar for us. we look for the really big spike happening here monday into tuesday. there is that outside chance, perhaps, in the far reaches of
5:17 am
the east bay. we may reach the sea note. meanwhile in the bay, look for temperatures to return to middle 70s to upper 70s in the coast. still hanging notice lower 60s. do we still hotspot talk? >> we have a back up. it's an injury accident westbound 80 at the 880 south. it's still block the right lane. chp issued a traffic alert for it. they hope to have it out of the way by 6:00. with that right lane blocked, it's backing up traffic. it's not a major delay so far. that could always change. but if you need to use westbound 880 you can always hop over to 980, the 980 connector instead of 880 south. that will help you get around that blocked ramp there. 580 looks good. no problems for 24 and coming from. just a small stretch. let's head over to seminole. look at that heavy traffic. approaching the truck scales an injury accident working one car,
5:18 am

5:45 am

5:46 am
tumbled. >> we're waiting to hear the president as comments. he's talking at stanford. so that is a breaking news and live developing story. we'll be following here on the news. we'll here what he -- hear what he has to say. >> we're following the very latest this morning with the fire that's burning right now in kern. you can see the pictures on your screen. again, we're looking for hopefully some better containment numbers on the part of firefighters. but this is a new wildfire. 60 homes from burned near bakersfield. it's called the ers kin fire. it started yesterday. and overnight, the fire crew to seven square miles. it's burning in the lake izz bell area. time now is 5:46. we want to check in with robin and get a look at the friday morning commute. >> it's looking better. the hotspot is gone. so that is great. >> it's friday and that helps. >> we're back to friday-like conditions. had this been a regular weekday it would have caused a little
5:47 am
bit of a back-up. here is a slow down at the toll plaza. it's backing up toward the end. it's not through the maze. it is a great ride roots upper deck into downtown san francisco. so if you need to get in this morning, yes, you'll have a little bit of cooper but it's not going to be a bad ride here for. in the maze, that was our earlier hotspot. westbound 80 to 880 south. it was an injury accident that had the right lane blocked. it's gone. just a little bit of slow traffic coming out of berkeley. the drive time not bad at all. looking at 18 minutes to get to the oakland maze. that's a great drive time. 680 is recovering from an earlier crash. this was southbound at the electric scales. traffic is backed up beyond 84. it's yellow and it's orange. so that means moderate traffic. only 24 minutes to get from dublin out to freement fremont. -- fremont. 205. merging on to 580 west. that's normal. no, contracts or stalls there. but after the -- coming through
5:48 am
livermore valley, it's smooth sailing. so only 25 minutes from 205 to the 680 split. a quick check of 92, maybe you need to get across the bridge this morning, it's a little crowded on the right. that's traffic coming out of hayward. no trouble spots heading into foster city and san mateo. good morning, good morning everybody. as you saw from the bridge cams that overcast sky, is low lying clouds from the fog that we have. that will be mixing out fairly quickly for today. probably giving us a little bit of relief as we start the day. 52 for half moon bay. 50 for nevada. we don't see any 40s on that map. so what helped out on the middle of the week here, we have that trough up in the northwest, cool weather. that provided an onshore flow from our vantage point. turned our hot to warm for many locations. 80s have been pretty much the trend for a lot of the inland spots until you get real far inland. that will be the trend again today. a couple 90s will pop here and
5:49 am
there. in central valley where the hotspot will be. then along the peninsula. we have at a lot of rather greens going on there. so we're still getting the influence of that onshore flow. that will weaken as that trough repositions. so actually a little warmer it looks like for tomorrow. east bay temperatures today 76 oakland, matching that for hayward. dan vill about 89 in livermore 89 as well. you can see these upper 80s kind of flirting with 90s degrees. again, expecting tomorrow to be a little hotter on that front. in the planning forecast, it does reveal that there's up to 93 or so, 91 will do it for sunday. but then the real warm-up happens early -- into next week. it looks like for a couple days as we gradually reduce temperatures next week, it looks kind of interesting as we finish off next week because we may be talking about already it's not even july 4th monsoon. we'll be having more details on that coming up. james. >> all right. good enough.

5:52 am
