7:02 am
busy towards the pay gates and westbound 80 just jammed upcoming out of richmond and in towards the maze. the good news is that once you're up on the bay bridge, it's a pretty good looking ride after an earlier stall that slowed things down. across the golden gate bridge from marin county to san francisco looking nice on highway 101. and let me show you what the maps look like over for the folks who are heading over from tracy. you are still going to encounter some slowing westbound 580 into the livermore valley. that not as bad as it could be. we will slide just south here real quick and give you an overall view of the south bay commute. still not reporting any crashes down in the san jose area. good news for our friends over there. we will send it back over to you, gasia, at 7:02. new this morning thousands of dollars of antiques stolen from a store in san francisco.
7:03 am
police are searching for whoever took them. ktvu's paul chambers live in the city with what you have been able to learn so far, paul. >> reporter: good morning, gasia. it appears that it may have been a smash-and-grab. there is still a little bit of glass fragments on the ground here in the area, especially right down in here. but this boarded up window right here, that was where the criminals went in. on the other side there is a cabinet where the items they stole came from, and we are told it's an estimate of $35,000 worth of items. now, this all happened in the 400 block of jackson street here in san francisco. the criminals made their way into the store by breaking one of the three front windows. now, the store owner says they are still discover items that are missing. if you look at these photos, so far these are the items they say were stolen. one picture shows a candlestick from 1771. also a sterling silver set and a picture. the items are extremely heavy and may be the reason the
7:04 am
burglars made out with a few but very expensive items. at this time there is no information about a suspect. if you know anything about this case, you are told to call police. i will tell you what. it appears that the criminals left a flashlight. i guess that items were so heavy they dropped a flashlight and left it behind. of course, that will be one of the things police will be focusing on. maybe their fingerprints on there. not sure. >> and i'm wondering, paul, i am sure the police will tell you what was taken is probably so rare and so valuable, whoever tries to sell it might run into trouble. it's not an iphone you can sell on the street? i. >> reporter: exactly. these are items dating back to 17th, 18th century. as i said earlier, they are extremely heavy. that's another thing that you might want to be looking out for. those are not like an iphone or silverware that people have in their kitchen. >> all right. we will see you again this morning. now to the south bay where also new this morning fire crews in san jose responded to
7:05 am
an early morning fire in a shopping center. you see the damage left behind by flames that started before 3:30 in a living area behind a liquor store and flower shop. a man was sleeping inside. firefighters were able to get him out safely. they were able to put out the flames in about 15 minutes. the cause of this fire is under investigation. happening today the case against the man accused of kidnapping and killing morgan hill teenager sierra lamar is back in court. the trial for antolin garcia- torres which has been delayed for months is scheduled to start today. it may be delayed again. sierra lamar disappeared in march of 2012 on the way it school. prosecutors say there is dna evidence linking her to garcia torres. time is 7:05. controversy continues this morning over donald trump's response to the father of a fallen muslim-american soldier who spoke at the democratic convention. >> if you look at his wife, she was standing there. she had nothing to say. she probably -- maybe she
7:06 am
wasn't allowed to have anything to say. you tell me. plenty of people have written that. >> and donald trump is also not happy with the schedule of the upcoming presidential debates. christian fisher has the latest from washington, d.c. >> reporter: so we're nowlis than a hundred days way from election day, which means from here on out it is all about the battleground states. right now the latest polls show trump and clinton deadlocked in states like ohio and pennsylvania. donald trump is kicking up bipartisan backlash on the first full week of the general election campaign. his comments about khzir khan who spoke at the dnc, his wife and their army captain muslim son killed in iraq are being criticized by everyone from the republican leaders of the house and senate to hillary clinton, who was asked about this controversy repeatedly yesterday on the campaign trail. >> and then to launch an attack as he did on captain khan's mother, a gold star mother, i
7:07 am
don't know where the bounds are. i don't know where the bottom is. >> reporter: as clinton wraps up her two-day bus tour in two key battleground states, ohio and pennsylvania, trump is preparing to hit the same states today. his campaign is planning to meet with the president on presidential debates after trump claimed two of the debates are at the same time as nfl games. >> hillary clinton wants to be against the nfl. like she did with bernie sanders, where they were on saturday nights when nobody is home. >> reporter: but the bipartisan debate commission is pushing back. they claim the schedule has been set since september, and so was the nfl, who trump claimed sent him a letter. over the weekend a spokesman tweeted out, quote, while we wish the debate commission could find another night, we did not send a letter mr. trump. something it's to watch out for. a possible october surprise from wikileaks. the founder said it will release more documents about clinton sometime between now and november. in washington, kristin fisher,
7:08 am
fox news. >> with the controversy over the date of the two of the debates being at the same time as an nfl game our question of the day is this. would you watch the nfl game or the presidential debate? let us know what you think. post a comment on our ktvu facebook page. wikileaks founder julian assange will not reveal how or from whom it received internal democratic party emails. the emails indicated that the dnc, which is supposed to be impartial during its own party's primary race, favored hillary clinton and possibly undermine bernie sanders. those nearly 20,000 emails led to the ouster of dnc chair congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz. u.s. officials say the russians were behind the hack attack. hillary clinton says that would amount to russian interference in our elections. >> we would not tolerate that
7:09 am
from any other country, particularly one with whom we have adversarial positions. and for trump to both encourage that and to praise putin despite what appears to be a deliberate effort to try to affect the election, i think raises national security issues. >> now, julian assange responded to hillary clinton's statement saying, she is trying to undermine our publication, trying to draw attention away from the fact that she confider with debbie wasserman schultz to subvert an election in the united states. time is 7:09. happening today a big announcement is expected about the future of the track and field program at san jose state university. the school's once renowned men's track and field program was discontinued in 1988 because it of reallocation in university funding. john carlos and tommy smith will be there when the announcement is made today. you may remember they made

a police chase went through three counties in southern california has ended peacefully. it started after 4:00 this morning in los angeles and it continued into orange county. you can see the car driving there. a woman behind the wheel got onto the freeway, led police to long beach. at one point she got off the freeway, drove erratically. you see what appears to be almost the end of the bumper of that car hanging off. it ended in a neighborhood in san diego county. it's about to end here. police are able to corner the woman. they arrested her. it's not clear exactly what led up to this chase. time is 7:13. this morning hundreds of employees who work for the santa clara court system are protesting and say they are fed up with low pay. this is not a strike. the workers are telling janine de la vega who is there in san
7:14 am

7:15 am
an agreement, these folks have authorized a full strike, which would shut down the entire court system in santa clara county. >> reporter: tell me about what they are so upset about. >> they have gone eight years without a pay increase. as anybody that lives in this area knows, this is one of the most expensive places to live. they have folks that are literally couch surfing with co- workers. have lost their homes. are really having a hard time making ends meet. and eight years without a pay increase is unacceptable. >> reporter: these are court clerks. what do they do? >> they are the folks that work inside of each courtroom. they gather up all the paperwork. they make the filings. they process the judgments, the court orders. we are finding the staff has been cut so dramatically. eight years without a raise, they have lost a lot of workers. piles and piles of documents are going unprocessed. >> reporter: thank you very much. coming up in the next hour you
7:16 am
will hear from somebody else from the union. we are also going to see if they do run into the chief justice while they are out here this morning to see if there is any sort of interaction, if there could be any stop to this because, as they're saying, they are prepared to strike. back to you. >> janine de la vega. thank you. we will check back. 7:16. sal castaneda enjoying a day off. we turn to alex savidge for a look at the morning roads. >> good morning everyone. our slowest spot is in the east bay. if you are driving along interstate 80, it's been bogged down much of the morning. i want to show you, this a live look. to give you a sense of what your drive is like, if you are coming in from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze, that drive right now 42 minutes. you can see right there it's backed up to the maze. the toll plaza is slow. the good news is that once you get on to the bay bridge and the span, the ride is actually okay getting into san francisco. let me -- speaking of san francisco, let me show you the

7:18 am
they have been lacking on that as well. tahoe and truckee got close a couple of days, but it's over now. smoke statewide from the fires. monterey county, 18% contain. 1,500 firefighting personnel on that fire. that smoke continues to work up towards the bay area, parts east as well, and that's why we have a lot of air quality issues. it's worst in southern california from the santa clarita fire. it is amazingly smoky and visibility is awful. so it's statewide. but that is where some of ours is coming from. air quality will be improving by the end of the week as temperatures cool off. warm inland. not as hot as last week. very, very foggy in san francisco last week. that fog bank has lifted. frederick and a couple other people said, wow, it's not as
7:19 am
foggy in the city. out here in the sunset district, it's a surprise. high pressure was just squashing it. now that that's weakened, it's allowing that fog bank to lift. it's now more of a cloyd deck. not just fog. low clouds a decent push inland for some. water temps pretty warm. they came up. san francisco buoy is down one. but then overnight lows are running on the warmer side. 20. gusts to 28-29. that's not bad. vacaville west wind. there is a delta breeze or an onshore breeze. 50s, 60s, a little bit of a southeast breeze in some of the warmer bay temps, contributing to the warmer lows. menlo park 62. stanford 63. 59 belmont. san mateo 58. palo alto 63. warmer than a week ago. that's for sure. 20. gusts to 30 west. west. west, west, concord pleasant hill on the clear category.

7:33 am
bit of slowing. can you see it's backed up pretty good over into concord. now i will show you the bay bridge toll plaza, and it is backed up solid through the maze. it is slow as you approach the pay gates, obviously. once you get up onto the incline section, traffic is moving along pretty nicely here according to my maps. a little slow up the incline, but not too bad making your way across the entirety of the span into san francisco, and also here as you take a look at the maps, you can see that westbound 80 pretty slow heading out of richmond towards the maze. and i will slide you down south here and show you on the maps, we are not reporting any crashes of any kind in the south bay, but you can see things beginning to slow down especially on highway 101 up into downtown san jose. 7:33 is the time. dave, over to you. >> alex, thank you. police patrols are increasing along a marin county trail where mountain bikers have found what looks like a homemade spike strip on the

7:35 am
hikers and bikers have been feuding about the use of the trails for several years. there have been other reported obstructions through the trail in the past few months. we have reached out to several groups. also the sheriff's department. we have not heard back. we understand they are increasing patrols because of the spike strip found on the trail. 7:35. police in austin, texas say a woman killed in a shooting was from the bay area. teqnika moultrie lived in san carlos and worked as a school bus driver in redwood city. she and her wife were visiting family members in austin. her brother-in-law says he and the two women had just walked out of a doughnut shop when someone started shooting a gun. >> there was a lot of parents in the ground screaming. sabrina was obviously beside herself. her and i tried to run to her. >> police say there had been some kind of argument before

7:37 am
calfire has contained a fire that broke out in santa clara county. calfire says the flames were probably started when a lawn mower blade hit a rock. the fire was pushed through dry grass burning 114 acres in all. that's not too big of an area, but firefighters say this is a good example of how a lot of small fires can keep their crews very busy during hot weather. >> statistically this year, we are higher as far as the fire count than we were last year. we did get some rain. so with the rain we got a little bit of grass crop. that's really carrying the fire. >> calfire says the fire moved slowly, so it was easier to contain than others. fire crews say it also made it easier for wildlife to get away from the flames. 7:37. we are learning more about the two emeryville police officers who were almost hit by gunfire. they were on foot patrol friday night in the area near pixar studios when they saw a bullet ricochet off the ground near

7:47 am
kind of took sides. chose lyft over uber. but it's interesting. a lot of companies are just kind of giving up because the chinese government and operations, they want to run things over there. >> interesting. all right, pam, thank you. time is 7:47. despite weeks of announcements and we announced, too, on tv, some bart riders were caught off guard, surprised over the weekend to find bart service shut down between two stations. that meant getting to sfo using bart took longer than usual. delays of up to an hour. there are six more weekends of these bart shutdowns planned. bart is replacing worn stretches of the track. san trans is running free bus shuttles while the work is taking place. 7:47. sal is off today, but we have alex. he is right over there. how does it look out there? >> for the most part, pretty good. we have our usual slow spots. before we get to our live cameras, i want to show you a piece of video. this is from our live report
7:48 am
about an hour ago. this was brought to our attention here. it's a crash captured on camera. while we were on the air, you see boom, boom, four cars slam into each other right there. this was at the toll plaza. you see it looks like that driver in the front at the last minute decided they didn't want to be in the carpool lane, and the folks behind them crashed into each other. nobody hurt in that accident, but that's some of what happens when things are real busy at the toll plaza as they usually are. now, we'll take you to our live picture here from the emeryville camera. by the way, thank you to twitter user steveo for pointing that out. here's what things look like through berkeley westbound on interstate 80. slow all the way out of richmond and all the way up to the maze. we'll go down here and show you, boy, things are nearly at a standstill headed westbound on highway 92 across the san mateo bridge. look at that. very slow traffic. it frees up part way across the span. that is a very slow ride. i am going to check and make
7:49 am
sure there is not some sort of crash on that span that might be slowing things down. as we go to the maps, a slow ride of course westbound highway 4 out of antioch and through the baypointe area. also some slowing 680 southbound coming into walnut creek. 7:49 is the time. steve. send it over to you, sir. thank you very much. we do have a little bit of info on the fire first towards big sur, monterey county. some of that smoke has been drifting northward towards us. it looks better towards the end of the week. i think we will get some better air quality and cooler temps to help the firefighters. very steep rugged terrain. 18% contained. humidity's up. that's good. i mean, there is a lot of low clouds they can deal with there. this is an inaccessible area. some of the smoke has been drifting northward. there is also a fire towards southern california. the santa clarita fire. the smoke and haze is all over
7:50 am
southern california. a cooler pattern. mainly 80s. some 90s. 60s, 70s. i think by thursday some of these areas such as livermore, which was toasty, toasty last week. this week upper 80s maybe to near 90 tuesday, wednesday. after that 80 degrees or upper 70s if everything continues to march in as advertised. san francisco 65/58. what's average? 67/55. the record 98 in 1993. we have to go back to 1893 to find a record low of 48 degrees. low clouds. water temps came up a little bit, although bodega bay and san francisco buoy have dropped in the last three hours. west, west-southwest, oakland, hayward. an onshore breeze. more pronounced in the delta. cool air will make it for some of the inland areas. 60s for some temps. water temps came up. that allows for warmer lows.
7:51 am
but west, west, west, so looks like an onshore breeze is here for probably most of the week. some of the low clouds which are now not as -- being held in check, not as restricted. that's allowed it to lift a little bit. does not look like that monsoon moisture will make it up to tahoe or truckee. it looks like it's going to put on the brakes in southern california. plenty in arizona. got within, i think, just outside knocking on the door. now it's going to be pushed off towards the east. so 60s, 70s, 80s. inland you can find only 90s. most locations, the trend is to bring it down. might be a bump up, subtle changes next couple of days for inland temps. i think the coast and bay are going to be stuck in the 60s and 70s. inland will take a tumble towards the middle end of the week, dave. thursday, friday look cooler. >> can you find any rain anywhere? >> not yet. soon. but once you get to august, maybe start looking into early

8:01 am
towards midweek. today a pretty good fog bank out there. 60s, 70s, 80s. low 90s far enough way from any fog influence, if you will. the trend here is to bring temperatures down. low clouds and it looks like they have lifted up. no problem clearing these coastal hills. this should cool off, i think, the ocean temps and there is a rather fresh delta breeze. that was not the case last week. 50s, 60s on the temps. mid 60s for a few on the mild side. the water temps inside the bay came up. 40s, 50s. napa 49 to 58. tahoe and truckee got close to some of that afternoon thunderstorm activity. this system is going to give us a cooler pattern and send a lot of that moisture eastward. morning fog. close to warm. temperatures 60s, 70s, and mainly 80s. alex, 8:01. something going on at the bay bridge? at the toll plaza? >> there was a crash that happened earlier. it happened right there at the
8:02 am
toll plaza. but that has been cleared out of the way. but as we take you here to a live picture of the toll plaza, it is still backed up solid all the way through the maze and pretty slow westbound 80 as well. now, once you get past the toll plaza, the bridge itself, it's a pretty good ride heading into san francisco. it's slow. not as bad as it could be. 101 in san jose, we aren't reporting any crashes but there will be slow traffic heading up into the downtown area. and speaking of the south bay, here you go on the maps. we will show you what the scene looks like. 101 has pockets of slowing. 237 westbound over in the milpitas area, that's going to be very heavy at this time for you. you're going to find some other pockets. no major issues in the south bay. it's certainly not as bad as it could be at this hour. 8:02. dave, back to you. >> thank you. well, new this morning, san francisco police want your help
8:03 am
right now. they are searching for thieves who stole thousands of dollars in antiques early this morning. ktvu fox 2's paul chambers is live in san francisco's financial district. what do you know? we may have a technical glitch right there with paul's microphone. we see him there. we will get it worked out. take your time. we will get back to paul in just a couple of moments. time is 8:03. meantime -- all right. that's okay, paul. all right. also now this morning, san jose fire crews responded to an early morning fire in a shopping center. it started just before 3:30 in a living area behind a liquor store and a flower shop. one man was asleep inside, but firefighters got him out safely. they were also able to put out the fire in about 15 minutes. the cause of the fire is under investigation. time is 8:03. happening today the case against the man accused of kidnapping and killing morgan hill teenager sierra lamar is back in court.
8:04 am
the trial for antolin garcia- torres, which has been delayed for months, is set to begin today, but it may be delayed again. he appeared in march of 2012 -- sierra lamar's body has never been found. the prosecutors say there is dna evidence linking sierra lamar to antolin garcia-torres. time is now 8:04. let's go back to paul chambers in san francisco. you have got some more information about an antique robbery in san francisco. so, paul, give us the latest from san francisco. >> reporter: dave, i tell you what. it appears it was a smash-and- grab situation. right here you can see that window. it's boarded up at this time, but that is where it appears the criminals went in. we are told the store owners says an estimate at $35,000 worth of items were stolen. this all happened in the 400 block of jackson street here in san francisco. the criminals made their way into the store by breaking one of the three front windows. the store owner says they are still discovering items that are missing. we need you to take a look at these photos.
8:05 am
so far these are some of the items they say were stolen. one picture shows a georgian sterling candlestick dated to 1771. also a silver serving set. they are very expensive items. now, at this time there is no information about a subject. i will tell you this right now. police are asking if you know anything about this case to give them a call. dave, i will also say that it appears that the criminals left a flashlight behind. that's one thing that the officers are looking at this morning. >> all right. paul chambers in san francisco. thank you. we will talk to you later. time is now -- your time is now 8:05. santa clara county court clerks are upset this morning and they say they are protesting and they are out protesting this morning. hundreds of them were on picket lines. ktvu's janine de la vega live from san jose to explain what effect this will have on the
8:06 am
courts today and maybe even longer. good morning, janine. >> reporter: good morning, dave. well, these protesters have gotten loudner the last hour. you can see there is more than 130 of them standing out here in front of the heys mansion holding their picket signs. they called in saying they are going to be late to work. court hearings that are happening this morning may be starting late. they have already voted to strike. they have made that vote last week. it was a unanimous vote. there is about 350 of these workers. these are court clerks and janitors and legal researchers. i am joined now by -- with ingrid stewart. you represent the union. how soon will a strike actually happen? >> well, basically, we have a strike vote that we can go out at anytime between now and the 15th of august. we have a rolling strike. so it can happen tomorrow. it can happen in a matter of a
8:07 am
couple weeks. but we have authorization to strike by our members. >> reporter: this would paralyze the court system. could is? >> yes, it would. all our courts would be shut down from civil to criminal. juvenile dependency. family court. all of those courts would be affected by our strike. >> reporter: i know this has to do with pay. there hasn't been a raise, you said, in eight years. tell me a little bit about why you wanted to do it here, and that's the main sticking point? >> well, we know that there is a conference here of judges. it's called the california council of judicial. and so we want to make sure that the judges and the chief justice know that we are hurting. our members are hurting. especially not having a raise in eight years. and we are just frustrated with the way negotiations have been going on with our courts. so we find that maybe the best way to handle this would be to
8:08 am
let the judicial council know how frustrated we are. >> reporter: thank you very much. ingrid stewart with the union. they are waiting for the chief justice to show up in this next hour. they want to hand her a letter, hoping she is going to intervene to prevent some sort of strike from happening. but as you heard from her, a strike is imminent, and she says it would definitely have an affect on the court system. we haven't heard from the courts this morning. we know last week when we contacted them they said that they did not, you know, really want to comment as far as something like this in the media. thee -- they would rather do it through negotiations. no new negotiations are slated at this point. >> janine, before you go, it's noisy, but it appears to be peaceful right now. are the police keeping an eye on this? >> reporter: you know, there was a police car here earlier. it looks like it has left. but everything's been pretty
8:09 am
peaceful. when this first started at 7 in the morning, they were actually a lot quieter and they were doing that because this is actually a hotel as well. so they were doing that out of respect for the guests. but they said at 8:00 they were ready. they were going to be loud. they want to get their point across. >> all right. janine de la vega in san jose. thank you. time is now 8:09. the florida site of the worst mass shooting in u.s. history, the pulse nightclub in orlando, florida, will reopen, but it won't be a nightclub any more. the owners say the pulse will become a permanent memorial for the 49 people killed in that shooting rampage on june 12. a charity group called one pulse foundation has been set up now to raise money for the memorial. we don't know if they will remodel the existing building or put up a new building. there is no word yet on when it will reopen. time is 8:09. two teenage boys are in custody this morning accused of going on a crime spree in vacaville. the suspects are 16 and 14 years old. police say they robbed several
8:10 am
fast food restaurants and gas stations armed with guns and knives. all the businesses were located along the same street in vacaville. the armed robberies took place during the past week. >> as far as vacaville, we haven't seen this type of violent type takeover style robbery at this age. >> no one was hurt during the armed robberies. police arrested the two young suspects over the weekend after talking with several witnesses. all right. time is 8:10. a bay area woman shot and killed in texas. a shocking story at 8:30. what happened before someone starting shooting on a crowded street in austin and the search for that shooter this morning. more controversial comments from donald trump. this time drawing criticism from both parties. and we're keeping an eye on the roadways this morning. we will show you coming up here your commute in the east bay and we will show you about some slow spots we are tracking still at this hour. and it looks like a cooler week this week compared to last. no doubt about it. in fact, maybe big-time cooling
8:11 am
by the end of the week. more on that coming up.
8:12 am
8:13 am
controversy continues this morning over donald trump's response to the father of a fallen muslim-american soldier who spoke at the democratic national convention. >> if you look at his wife, she was standing there. she had nothing to say. she probably -- maybe she
8:14 am
wasn't allowed to have anything to say. you tell me. plenty of people have written that. >> his comments are being criticized by the republican leaders of the house and senate and hillary clinton to who was asked repeatedly about it on the campaign trail. >> to launch an attack as he did on captain khan's mother, a gold star mother, i don't know where the bounds are. i don't know where the bottom is. >> trump is also upset about the date for two of the upcoming presidential debates. they are scheduled at the same time as nfl games. trump claimed the nfl sent him a letter expressing their displeasure. during the weekend, the nfl said they did not send a letter to donald trump. with the controversy over these dates, our question of the day is, would you watch the nfl game or the presidential debate? let us know what you think. post a comment on our ktvu facebook page or tweet us using the hashtag #ktvu.
8:15 am
meanwhile, wikileaks founder julian assange says his organization will protect its sources and won't reveal how or from whom it received internal democratic party emails. the emails indicated that the dnc, which is supposed to be impartial during its own party's primary race, favored hillary clinton and possibly undermine bernie sanders. those nearly 20,000 emails led to the ouster of debbie wasserman schultz. u.s. officials say the russians were behind the hack attack. clinton says that would amount to russian interference in our elections. >> we would not tolerate that from any other country, particularly one with whom we have adversarial positions. and for trump to both encourage that and to praise putin despite what appears to be a deliberate effort to try to affect the election i think raises national security issues. >> julian assange responded to what hillary clinton said saying, she, quote, is trying
8:16 am
to undermine our publication, trying to draw attention away from the fact that she conspired with debbie wasserman schultz, her former campaign manager who was head of the democratic party, to divert an election in the united states. flash flooding in maryland killed two people over the weekend. the video shows the scene in ellicott city. the fast moving water turning a street into a dangerous river. nearly 7 inches of rain fell in a couple of hours. cars and debris were swept up in the rushing water. four homes were destroyed and many businesses have substantial damage. the governor declared a state of emergency that will send money to help with clean-up and rebuilding efforts. 8:16. let's go to alex savidge. what's happening on highway 24 and everything else? >> 24 still slow, dave. good morning to you. we are tracking still some slow spots in the east bay. i will show you first of all
8:17 am
the situation if you are going to be traveling out of the walnut creek area. you are not alone. there is a live look at the 680/24 interchange. the folks on the right-hand side are trying to head westbound, but it's quite slow through lafayette, and then slow again through lorinda. that is going to take you a little while still. i will show you what the san mateo bridge looks like. there was an earlier accident on the span. cleared out of the way. you see some residual slowing as folks head westbound towards the peninsula. not too bad of a ride for the 8:00 hour. now as we go to the maps, i'll show you in the east bay, i would say that the ride on 80 westbound is improving based on what we saw earlier in the morning. it was quite slow coming out of richmond, but things seem to be improving ever so slightly as you head towards the maze and the backup at the maze not as bad as we saw it even earlier in the morning and the bay bridge itself pretty easy ride here at 8:17. once you get onto the bridge, that is.
8:18 am
of course you got to -- >> once you get there. >> yes. it's decent. >> okay. >> but getting there. >> but getting there. therein lies the rub. >> thank you. we do have -- therein lies the rub of a cooler pattern this week. much cooler than last week. in fact, i don't think we will see any 100s to the interior unless you are in the valley. maybe for a while around the bay area. by that i mean seven, ten days, or maybe 14. hints of low pressure digging in on the west coast and that high moving to to middle of the countries. the week for livermore it looking different than last week. that's for sure. sill still some 80s. maybe upper 80s to near ninely monday tuesday. a big drop. if it doesn't happen wednesday, for sure thursday and friday. could get upper 70s, low 80s as we head into the end of the week. so we might see our warmest temps today or tomorrow and then it's going to be downhill. there is plenty of low clouds in place. northwest, northwest, and then more of a west-southwest out to
8:19 am
the delta. 17 coming down a little bit, but still it's an onshore breeze. gusts over 30 earlier this morning. 60s for some. 70s for others. 63, 65, 62. hayward a southeast breeze ander bay temps mean warmer lows for the peninsula and parts of areas around oakland down to hayward and also fremont. but 59 san ramon. 58 black lives matter. 58 pittsburg. antioch, brentwood is close. pleasanton 57. not much of a change. northwest, west, west- southwest, west. it's a component of a westerly breeze. 86 las vegas. 81 phoenix. 86 palm springs. that monsoon moisture made it into the desert. it looks like it's put on the air brakes. just didn't make it to tahoe and truckee. this time of year they have pretty good boomers. not the case. that system right there, there will be two, one digging in. that's going to lower heights, as we say. that will keep the cooling
8:20 am
trend going and a stronger trend will carve itself out by the end of the week. morning low clouds, fog, nice to mild to warm, unless you get anything over 75. then hot. it's going to take a couple of days to clear down the ukiahs and clear lakes. most locations dropping. a few low, low 90s. i mean, this time of year that's not too hard do for some. much cooler than last week. that's for sure. temperatures near average for many to maybe even slightly to well below by the time we get towards the end of the week. so dave and gasia, by thursday and friday i think you will see a huge drop on a lot of those temps. >> steve, thank you. >> you bet. a massive fire in monterey county has destroyed 50 homes. how long it could take to control this fire. more trouble for draymond green of the warriors. the statement he had to issue after a photo that he says was meant to be private became very public on snapchat.

life's sharing a meal. and a kitchen with room for everyone. spend $4000 or more on a new kitchen and get 15% back at the ikea kitchen event. welcome back to "mornings on 2". we are learning more now about the people who were killed on friday when a medical transport plane heading for oakland crashed near the oregon border. the four people on board were killed when that plane went down in humboldt county early friday morning. the pilot, larry mills, had been a volunteer first responder for 12 years. nurse debora kuhn was a native of new zealand and was a nurse in the u.s. for 25 years.
8:24 am
paramedic michelle tarwater also died. we don't yet know the name of the patient. today activists upset over the sentence imposed in the brook turner sexual assault case will take new action in hopes of removing the judge who handed down that sentence. judge persky sentenced him to six months in jail rather than two years in prison. at noon supporters of turner's victim plan to submit a change.org petition demanding persky be removed from the court. they gathered nearly one million signatures. law professors say it could make judges make legal decisions based on public opinions. draymond green and the warriors are getting ready to head to rio for the olympics, but draymond is in hot water again. he posted an explicit photo of himself on snapchat. at first he said he had been hacked. then he admitted the picture
8:25 am
was meant to be sent in a private message. not to all of his followers. it was up there for ten minutes before he deleted it. this is the second apology draymond green has issued in the past month. you remember three weeks ago he was arrested on assault charges in michigan. the charges were dropped when he agreed to pay a fine for a noise violation. the 49ers held their first practice of training camp over the weekend. the big story this year is the battle for starting quarterback. lane gabbers took over the job for colin kaepernick last season. >> i think first and foremost is just who can move the team the best. that's what you are looking for. which quarterback can handle what they're doing and get the team in the end zone. the great thing about it is we are confident in both those guys. >> the 49ers first pre-season game is in two weeks against houston. golfer jimmy walker is celebrating his first major
8:26 am
title. he pulled off a one stroke victory over defending champ jason day in the pga championship yesterday in new jersey. walker had three birdies on the back nine. he sealed the win with a three foot putt for par on the 18th hole. 8:26. don't put your head underwater. do not open your mouth if you do. a new study warning of the serious health risk in the waterways of rio days ahead of the summer olympics. and we're live in the north bay where a homemade spike strip is having some mountain bikers on edge. we will show you what it looks like and why some say it was a message directly intended for them. some slow spots still on the bay area roadways this morning. we are keeping an eye on some of those trouble areas, including highway 4 westbound coming from the pittsburg baypointe area. we will tell you about that commute coming up. well, the fog bank has decided to come roaring back and it's back for many. not for all. cooler even if you don't have the fog. we will talk about a cooler week. nothing compared to last week.

8:31 am
they will settle in right here. mainly 60s, 70s, and 80s. alex, 8:30. >> always good of you, steve, to take those weather requests. >> happy to do it. >> very generous of you. >> my pleasure. >> the forecast looking good this week. nice and comfortable compared to last week. the roadways, we have some slow spots around the bay area. one of them is highway 4. i will show you here westbound right there on the left-hand side of your screen, those folks are coming over from baypointe and pittsburg and still a slow ride after an earlier crash at port chicago highway. got cleared out of the way. residual slowing there. at the toll plaza this is what you are going to find. it is still stacked up well through the maze. you're going to find once you get past the pay gates, the ride up the incline portion of the bay bridge, it's a bit slow. after that it frees up heading into san francisco. i will show you on the maps here what it likes on westbound 80. we have had problems all morning. it's been improving. now we have another crash
8:32 am
westbound 80 at san pablo dam road that has just come in. now we may have some slowing in that area westbound 80, san pablo dam in the richmond san pablo area. 8:32 is the time. gasia, back over to you. police in marin county are stepping up patrols after a dangerous discovery made along a trail. bikers found what looked like a homemade spike strip on the mound near wood acre. ktvu's brian flores live there now with how this may be connected to a long running dispute. >> reporter: yeah, that's what we're hearing, gasia. the person who found it told a local newspaper that this homemade spike strip was a message directly intended for mountain bikers in the area. now, take a look now at what this looks like. this was posted on facebook. according to reports it was found last tuesday by two bikers riding off a trail again in the whites hill open space preserve. it's been described as four feet long with more than 30 rusty screws sticking out of it. it's also been reported at least in "the chronicle" that
8:33 am
the people who found it say it was fastened to the ground with 7-inch spikes. now, the rider apparently took it home so other mountain bikers would not get hurt. it's unclear who left it or how long it's been there. some say it's about sharing the trails between mountain bikers, hikers and horse riders. quite frankly, it is getting crowded. >> we have a beautiful, fabulous area, but we are not good at sharing it. at least not yet. not all of it. so i think there is bad actors in all of the different camps and there is great people in all the camps as well. >> reporter: in the meantime, mountain bike groups and hiking groups have come out denouncing the spike strip that was found. there has been other reported obstructions on the trail in the past few months over the years, including inauthorized signs. logs on the trail. even reports of rebar on the trail as well. by the way, marin county sheriff's deputies say they are increasing patrols in the area

well, in other news, calfire says the soberanes fire is still growing in monterey county, but it's not expanding as fast. more than 40,000 acres have burned. that's could take at least this month before it's completely controlled. about 300 firefighters have been taken off the fire lines since yesterday. 57 homes are burned. as many as 2,000 more are threatened. we have new information from calfire about the wildfire that started yesterday in fresno county. it's called the goose fire. fire crews are making progress against it. 1800 acres have burned south of the town of prather 25 miles northeast of fresno. it is now 15% contained. that's the same acreage but more controlled as last night. so the fire is not expanding, but 200 homes have been evacuated. 400 more are in danger. calfire has contained a fire that broke out in santa
8:36 am
clara county. the sierra fire started saturday night. they say the flames were probably started when a lawn mower blade hit a rock. then the fire was pushed by light winds through the dry glass and 114 acres burned. that's not much, but firefighters say it's a good example of how a lot of small fires can keep fire crews very busy during very hot weather. >> statistically this year we are higher as far as fire count than last year. we got some rain. with the rain we get a little bit of grass crop. your grass crop is what's really carrying the fire. >> calfire also says the fire moved slowly, so it was easier to contain. two young men are facing trespassing charges after police say they climbed the 525- foot tower of the bay bridge. this happened yesterday afternoon. the chp says the two men, 18 and 23 years old, walked down the bike path, climbed over a railing and managed to climb a large suspension cable to the top of the tower.

8:43 am
a building. so they went over. they retrieved a 9-millimeter bullet. while i don't think that the officers were the target of this shooting, it does illustrate that officer safety is always on our minds, thatter we a out there -- that we are out there at night when everybody is sleeping protecting the neighborhoods, walking around. it just illustrates that, you know, we have to be vigilant. we have to protect our officers. make sure that they have the training and the equipment to protect themselves. we are operating in a climate where they feel like there is a target on their back. so even though this was what i believe not targeted at them, it's just a reminder of the dangers of this profession. >> are your officers doing anything differently now in the wake of a in am of police shootings around the country? >> absolutely. we are highlighting officer safety tactics. we have put them in paired patrols. i have personally sat down with the squads and shared with them, you know, my pride in
8:44 am
what they do. my concern about their safety and that going home at the end of their shift is the most important thing to me as their chief, and i think many chiefs share that sentiment. all chiefs, probably. and we just have to be always mindful about training., training and equipment to do their job. >> you are heading to the white house on wednesday. you're going to be gathering with other police chiefs from around the country. what is this white house gathering for? >> it's one of many. the president, back in december of 2014, called a task force together, and the task force was charged with developing some strategies around 21st century policing. and in three months they came out with this report. the 21st century policing
8:45 am
strategies report. and we have been reading this document. it's quite an extensive document. but the foundation of this report is six pillars of what is considered the sign posts to how we get to where we need to be. what we ought to be doing in policing to serve our communities in a way that meets their expectations and standards that creates trust in policing, legitimacy in what we do, community policing at the heart of what we do, officer safety and wellness, looking at technology and strategies to make sure we are benefiting from technology, as well as learning how to address crime that involves technology. social media. how do we use social media to create that transparency and that relationship with our communities? so it's all of those things that are so important that i think all of us have been doing all along. we just didn't formalize it in
8:46 am
a guide to take us and continue to keep us on this path of good solid policing strategies. >> you're coming up on one year as police chief in emeryville. before that you were in sausalito. two relatively small cities in the middle of big urban areas. what specifically from your experience would you like to take to the white house? >> well, i want to take that, you know, leadership? in policing today is really common sense. i have learned now -- you know, my fifth year as a chief. it's common sense around what we all know what do. we know we should be treating everybody with respect. as i grew up professionally in policing, that was my guiding principle. and being a part of the fabric of the communities that we serve is hugely important to being successful in policing. my former chief, brian brady,
8:47 am
retired from novato, really taught knee the concepts of community-oriented policing. inviting the community into our department. partnering with them. identifying the problems. partnering with the solutions. implementing those strategies together. it's really the foundation of how we move forward in a way that brings the community and the police together, and not divisive like what we're seeing now. >> can i ask you real quick before we have to go, do you expect to have a face-to-face with the president himself? >> i would leave to. >> i want to know what happened at the conference at the white house. we will talk to you afterwards. >> thank you so much. >> chief jennifer tejada of emeryville. thank you for coming in. police reform will be the topic of a panel discussion at san francisco's commonwealth club. the panel includes san francisco district attorney george gascon, will focus on

8:49 am
in the richmond area. so that is certainly good news as you head out the door here. and i'll show you the maps, and you can see what i'm talking about there. we had heavy slowing on westbound 80 for much of the morning heading up to the toll plaza, but things beginning to free up just a bit. some slowing on the incline portion of the bay bridge once you get past those pay gates. but then into san francisco not too bad of a ride at 8:49. steve, good morning to you. >> thank you, sir. good morning to you. all right. we have a cooler pattern in place. a lot of low clouds and fog and temperatures coming down. last week was a hot one for those away from the coast. some closer to the coast actually did not participate in any warm-ups. when it was warm, it was really warm. a little haze in there. some smoke from big sur vita force. jimbo says good morning, mr. p. three loves. mike, cat whisk. the whiskers love it, too.
8:50 am
find a cat, speaking of, since you are taking weather requests, can we have a calm day on the wind front this friday? i am getting my hair done. no. looks breezy to windy to me. do it in the morning when there is low clouds in place. all right. a cooler pattern. 60s, 70s and 80s on your temps. there will be some 90s, but well inland. livermore last week had a toasty week. this week forecast highs 87, 89, 88. 79-81. how about that? a far cry from last week when there was a lot of 102s. low clouds and fog not going anywhere. mild temps. southeast breeze santa clara valley and warmer bay temps and ocean temps have brought some of these lows up. 59 santa cruz. low 60s santa clara. cupertino in there. 60, 61, 62. there is your southeast san jose. west-southwest. northwest. west. i know it's not much. it's a little westerly component. once that low clouds burn off,
8:51 am
sunny to nice to mild to warm. 52 truckee. 57 ukiah. monterey warmer. 86. palm springs, las vegas, phoenix a cool 81. lots of monsoon cloud cover there. some that have made it into southern california. the southern sierra. it just didn't quite make it up to tahoe and truckee. got close, but it looks like that's it. that system right there dropping down here. it will brush a lot of that moisture away. looks good in the mountains and a much cooler pattern for us. morning fog. nice to mild to warm. that breeze picks up once that low cloud deck cools off. 60s to 90s. haze. smoke in the air with that big sur fire and also in southern california. very, very smoky and hazy down there. 60s, 70s to a few low 90s. i think after, if not today or tomorrow, we can say good-bye symptom of the 90s well inland as it looks like a significant cooldown, which takes us to the end of the week and the weekend. a picture that's getting a lot of love on our instagram
