4:30 am
california, or shasta, truckee, don't get surprised by pretty windy and cool, maybe cold conditions. fog has been chewed up. there's patchy low clouds right now, and it is a little bit on the cooler side since most locations are clear, but i'm sure there will be a little bit of fog before everything is said and done. tropical storm hermine 70 miles per hour, moving through southern georgia on its way to the carolinas, the track takes it right over them and out to the atlantic. we'll see if that trend continues. we do get some patchy low clouds, mainly thicker south. there's not much of a breeze. it is cooler for many, except concord, buchanan. novato 51. santa rosa, 53. that's it. we're looking pretty good. this system, though, is digging in right there, and that's going to give us a taste or a touch of fall as we go into the weekend. 60s, 70s and 80s. normal inland, a little bit below. sal i would think things would be quiet but you never know.
4:31 am
>> one of my favorite things that you do, steve, is when you put nice on there. it's so subjective, but you and i feel the same thing is nice, right. >> it's nice out. >> some people might think an ice storm is nice. >> maybe if you're making ice wine. >> all right. thank you very much. >> you're welcome. thank you, steve. happy friday. >> you too. we are looking at a commute that is in very good shape. we're going to start with the solano county commute with people who drive a far distance to get to work. some people drive as far as sacramento, they drive through solano county. looking good through vacaville and fairfield heading down to the cordelia junction. some go on 680, others on 80 and it's looking good. at the bay bridge toll plaza, you will see that traffic is light still. we're hoping for a lighter commute day on this friday before labor day. we'll see what happens. on highway 280, interstate 280 in san jose, northbound 280

bring down to the booking area, return all this property, and then finger print him out, and he'll walk out the door, walk through the lobby and walk down here. >> we're not happy about the sentences right now. >> i'm not. i think anybody charged with, convicted of rape should do time in state prison. i'm supporting the assembly bill, 2888 on the governor's desk right now.
4:50 am
it makes mandatory prison sentences for anyone convicted of raping an intoxicated and unconscious person. >> was he a good inmate, a bad inmate? >> i don't know how he was as an inmate. he was in protective custody because of the risk to him. >> reporter: what kind of message does it send to the public that brock turner is being released after just 90 days. >> you know, that's the court decision. it's a decision i'm not happy with. i think it should have been a state prison sentence but that's why we're moving so quickly on getting the law changed and urging governor brown to sign the legislation that's on his desk now. >> reporter: we understand he's also getting a lot of hate mail; is that correct. >> i'm not sure about that. we don't read the inmate's mail. i have been told that is true. he was in protective custody. >> reporter: why is that? >> for the protection of him. a lot of people who are charged with crimes, homicide, and
4:51 am
things like that, very often they're in protective custody, if they're a risk of other inmates. >> reporter: given the volume of hate mail, has he received any death threats. >> we have an ops plan. we're not going to talk about the operations plan. we are well prepared for him walking out. i don't think there's a definable threat but there's a lot of hate. we're not sure of the level. >> reporter: we have a classification system in the jail, and all inmates are interviewed and we determine the level of risk. because of the sensational nature of the crime and also the nature of the crime, he was placed in protective custody from the beginning. >> reporter: has he been here or at elmwood. i'm told he was in a dorm like setting. >> he's always in protective custody but i think he was at the elmwood facility at one point. that is not as secure or as many protective custody people. he was moved here.

4:53 am
else. >> reporter: is the sheriff's office going to accompany him to the destination. >> no, no. >> thank you, sheriff. >> thank you very much. >> reporter: that's sheriff laurie smith coming out. >> we have been listening in live to sheriff laurie smith. very adamant, she said she does not agree with the sentence of brock turner, working on legislation, hopefully the governor she says to sign that will require mandatory prison sentence for a convicted sex offender, particularly if the victim is unconscious, which is the case here, and of course you can see video from earlier, and outside the courthouse, a huge media presence. a lot of people are unhappy with the sentence for brock turner. >> he'll walk through the door, expected to be released in the next couple of hours. we'll check back there. let's check traffic now, get
4:54 am
you out the door. >> if we go to the tracy commute, which we follow every day. usually by now, we have stop- and-go traffic. this morning we don't, just as we expected this friday before the labor day weekend i think things are going to be lighter, we're going to see a different traffic pattern in the morning, anyway, this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. that traffic looks good. usually at about 5:30 is when we'll see the crowd. we'll see what happens then. if you're driving this morning in san francisco along northbound 101, it looks good approaching the 80 split. >> if you say it's quieter in tracy, that's a sure sign. >> let's get to our weather, it's quiet. patchy fog out there.
4:55 am
a couple hurricanes. honestly, i feel great. >> poor steve. >> unbelievable. if i didn't have to talk, everything would be great. >> all right. madeline did what we thought, a glance, the big island has moved out of the picture. we have one more. this one is taking a different path. madeline only 35 miles per hour is long out of the picture. it's moving well away. but lester continues a track now that's more north. and we'll see if that stays in its path, and i think it will. hermine, though, right through georgia, heading into the carolinas, 70 miles per hour wind, and it looks like it will head out into the atlantic, might brush the northeast. right now it does not look like it's going to happen. patchy fog for us. a little bit of a breeze. not that strong. a lot of low 50s, come on.
4:56 am
come on. 52 half-moon bay. 51 novato. there are a little south wind. i believe antioch, brentwood 57. another observation in concord is 53. there's a big difference there. 36 up in truckee. be advised, there will be in northeast california, maybe a few little pop up showers. if you're heading to shasta, tahoe t truckee, windy -- tahoe, truckee, windy and cooler. as a system drops from the gulf of alaska, there it is. tail end of that just clipped the northern part of the state. it's going to cool us down as well. 60s, 70s and some 80s. looks like fog will regroup tomorrow as the system approaches. straight through saturday night into sunday morning, very cool then. and it looks like we see a slow rebound monday into tuesday. time is 4:56. all eyes on the south bay including us. coming up at five, we'll continue to follow release from
4:57 am
jail of sanford swimmer brock turner, the security measures outside the main jail. we'll tell you about it. we continue to follow the colin kaepernick protest, what he said after last night's game, and the reason he chose to kneel instead of sit during the national anthem. the roast looks good dad. how good? 162 likes. did i get any retweets on those green beans? yep! and they're blowing up on instagram. honey, your rump roast just broke the internet!!!! as it should. life is family mealtime and everything you need to make it picture perfect. now be sure to tag your mother because she needs more followers. ok.
