12:18 pm
the islands, but still we're seeing a line right here and that could often change as the forecast -- as we head into thursday and friday. so we will have to keep an eye on this. if it does change and does head to the south, that could mean a completely different forecast for the hawaiian islands. thankfully, the main energy forecasted to be just to the north. outside right now back here in the bay area no storms out there. we just have some scattered low clouds hanging out near the coast and parts of the bay. here is the latest on the satellite. you can see still some patchy overcast near the shoreline. we have had some systems move in from the north and they have mixed out the marine layer. so the system should cool us off. it warmed us up as the fog went away. current numbers out there, san francisco 60. san jose 72. livermore mid 70s. fairfield in the upper 70s. 77. there is santa rosa checking in at 76 degrees. here is the plan for today. still some patchy overcast near parts of the shoreline.

12:20 pm
how it works. >> reporter: the goal for bart is to let people know about the bart perks program. so people can get rewarded and perhaps it will ease some of the overcrowding, especially during the very busy early morning rush hour. the bart perks pilot program kicked off on tuesday and it's slated to last six months. it offers points to passengers who can rearrange their schedule away from the peak morning hours. you earn one point for each mile you travel on the system, but you earn more points when you travel during bonus hours. these are the times between 6:30 to 7:30 in the morning and 8:30 and 9:30 in the morning. the bulk of the congestion on bart happens between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. the thinking is that if you offer cash incentives for people to slightly tweak their riding schedule it's going to ease the overcrowding. but will the program work? that is what we asked the bart passengers? >> it would be better. in the morning less more seats.
12:21 pm
more people left in the morning. frees up the commute for the rush hour. i see how it could work. >> for the money that was given to us, i think it could have been used inside a better way. >> reporter: how so? >> now we are going to set up another bureaucracy. i don't think it helps that much. i think we just need more trains and more cars. >> reporter: what are some of the incentives or perks? for every thousand points you earn, that equals a dollar. or you can play a spin to win game where you can win various cash prizes. you need to be 18 years old. you need to have a clipper card and paypal account. each month reward balances are transferred into a user's account. if 1200 people got to work a little earlier or later, it would equate to a 10-car bart train. earlier this morning i spoke with a spokesperson who says so far 4,000 people have signed up. if you are interested sign up
