6:25 am
day. the countdown is on for that historic solar eclipse next week. but we can all learn come monday morning. bart is considering a plan that could delay thousands of passengers. and the early commute is slow at the bay bridge this morning. you can see for yourself, the traffic coming around the corner there. it's been charging inland for most of the night, but the inland does look a little bit warmer.
6:26 am
6:27 am
6:28 am
welcome back. it is wednesday, august 16. dave is enjoying a a day off. >> i'm hancock, face for joining us. >> according to the san francisco chronicle, that's why the bart board of directors talked about starting trains an hour later each day systemwide, sometimes in the next year. ellie joins us live at the orinda station. >> there are about 2400 people
6:29 am
who ride bart during its first hour of operations, between 4 and 5 am. pushing the start time systemwide back in our would definitely put a a lot of pressure on people who rely on bart during the early morning hours. now, bart does need to do some maintenance work. it's a 45-year-old system, and when trains run before -- between 4 am and midnight, it doesn't leave much time in the overnight hours to get that business done. and that is in order to do more upgrades and maintenance work. having trains in operation during the first hour would mean more people either have to hit the road, drive their car, take over or take buses. passengers this morning say all of those options come with convenience and a price. i guess for all those people who go to work early, it will be pretty bad for them and they will have to find a different way. they would have to drive, it's just lot more expensive.
6:30 am
>>at this time of the morning they only start at like 420 4:20 am, and i'm already standing. so, that's really going to mess up the commute. no final decision has been made on whether bart will officially do this, and if they do, when they will start it. but according to the san francisco chronicle, court officials are talking about this happening systemwide. so there was some discussion, why not start that for a later start time. there is a possibility that the schedule change could go into effect sometime next year. i want to bring in our resident traffic expert, south castaneda,
6:31 am
because that is going to have a big impact on the morning commute. >> i think what we are seeing is the bay bridge, because many people that would ordinarily be on the bay bridge are on bart. and if that early hour is taken away, we will see more. let's take a look at these commutes that are already very busy. 680, 24, and highway 4 is pretty slow right now through all of pittsburgh. the traffic isn't too slow yet from the concorde area to walnut creek, and then over to hercules and elsa pandey, the traffic isn't too bad. we do see some slowing as a get down to the macarthur maze, about a 23 minute drive, and most of that traffic again is between el cerrito and the bay
6:32 am
bridge. on top of that, another 20 minute delay getting into san francisco. today's weather is very similar to the last couple of days and that has been a big fog bank, with temperatures running below average. inland temps have been a good 10 or 150, yesterday was about 10%. a little bit warmer, but there is a still a robust fog bank. each day is warmer and i don't think we are getting rid of all that fog. the fog bank continues, and the low, it was 15 i know. so if it feels warmer to you, it is. there's a southerly breeze, and you are about by two on the low, and the high. 92 years ago, the record high.
6:33 am
low clouds making a strong push northward and they have already extended well to the east for some. also southward and out into the pacific so we have plenty to work with. and onshore breeze, although near the coast there is a southerly breeze. 57 palo alto, and cooler in glen allen, and 52. mid-50s in cloverdale, kelsey bill, they are all within a couple of degrees of each other cousin the low clouds. a spin coming into the atmosphere and that keeps our fog bank rolling right along. but it will gradually decrease, and you will see some slightly warmer temps inland. overall, this pattern is just a little bit warmer over the next couple of days. pam and frank.
6:34 am
6:33 am, and we are following the developing story of another freeway shooting in the bay area. >>second shooting and hayward in that area. alex savidge joins us live in hayward, and here's what we have learned about the police investigation. >>good morning to you guys. very few details are coming to life this morning about the shooting but, the chp says it does not appear that anyone was hit by the gunfire. this overnight shooting happened on the northbound lane of 880, just north of jackson street here on hayward. as you can see what this live picture, chp officers are responding overnight and repeatedly shut down all the northbound lanes together. i want to mention that this is the second time we've seen this happen. there was another freeway shooting, about 5 miles up the road and san leandro. that was on monday morning when
6:35 am
a driver was shot in the head and critically injured. experts believe it was road rage . once again, another report of shots being fired out here along interstate 880 and east bay. this early morning shooting happened here in hayward, along the northbound lanes of the freeway. we are working to get more information on this investigation. very scary. thank you, alex, for the update. san jose fire investigators are looking for the cause of a fire that claimed the lives of a man and two children. fire crews are arriving within just 10 minutes of the first call, but the front of the home had already collapsed.
6:36 am
you can see it is engulfed. an older man and the children were found right away but it took hours to find the second child. >> i came out my front door and i looked in the back, the flames were coming out all the windows and of course i panicked. i went back there and, like i said, other neighbors were trying to bust in the door. >> we don't know if there was accidental accelerants such as cooking gas or something of that nature that accelerated the fire, but it didn't burn very quick. >> the victims names have not been released but they say the family that lived in the mobile home are the enemies and included three generations. a miscalculation may have led to the release of a man who later killed and robbed a man. a lamonte a man is accused of shooting and killing at a french and stealing his camera
6:37 am
exactly one month ago. nims was released five days earlier on a gun charge. the judge released him by using a system called psa, or public safety assessment. it's a sport tabulated by pretrial diversion, assigning points based on an inmate's prior criminal history. ktvu has learned that nims should not have been eligible for release, because a prayer incarceration in san mateo was factored in. >> i know the idea is to keep poor people out of jail but i think these people should be treated fairly. >>probation is not factored into an inmate's score. misdemeanors are assigned the same point value as felonies, and the scores of convicted felons are not defected if they
6:38 am
carry a gun, only if they use it. san francisco sheriff is calling a meeting next week with local courts and law enforcement representatives to discuss what improvements can be made to the -- to the system. novato police are asking for help identifying three men who may have installed a suspicious device on an atm in- state -- inside of a gas station. two of the suspects are described as men in their 20s, and one has a small mustache and a limp. >> we are just five short days away from the solar eclipse of the path of totality makes its way from the west coast to the east coast. a total eclipse will be visible exclusively in the united states , since 1776. we show you why this is a big deal for local astronomers and scientists. >> it has happened before but a
6:39 am
total solar eclipse over the united states, that doesn't happen very often. 1918 was actually the last time we had any clips that was taught all in the us, where the path of totality went from the west coast the way to the east coast. that has been 99 years. >> the last total eclipse to touch any part of the mainland us was 1979. the last total eclipse visible in northern california was in 1889. the astronomical society of the pacific where we are filming this was actually founded as a result of that eclipse in 1889, because it was such a big deal. >> it's a big deal because you have to wait for the sun, the moon and the earth to all get in line. a total eclipse of the sun happens when the sun and the moon all line up perfectly. there's about a 70 mile wide strip across the entire united states that starts in portland,
6:40 am
oregon. you are going to see something called a partial eclipse and that has people talking to totality. >> it's a mostly rural and small town eclipse. a total eclipse path which is only 60-70 miles wide goes across the country, but mostly it doesn't go across any major metropolitan areas. and, for the most part, country locations, small towns national parks and, that means that the eclipse, even to go into that eclipse zone, you need to
6:41 am
televise it from there. hundreds of thousands of people are planning to go into that eclipse zone. >> when it comes to the west coast versus east coast, we went on this one. >> there have been studies made of the entire total eclipse path around the country and whether chances. for example, on the east coast, on a typical early afternoon in august, there is a big chance of thunderstorms and clouds. for most people, the best locations turn out to be central oregon, and idaho, that's where the cloud cover is likely to be released. >> it is a teachable moment. >> this is a scale model and, many people think the moon is right here, but the moon is actually 30 earth diameters away. >> and, it's a chance for everyone to look up and see something we rarely get to see. >> i think it's a very big deal and anyone who has seen a total solar eclipse from the path of
6:42 am
totality has said the same thing. don't forget, we will have complete coverage come monday morning. our special extended coverage begins at 9 o'clock in the morning. and i will be watching it firsthand on a plane as it comes in. many kids will be allowed to go outside to watch the solar eclipse, they been back in school. those in alabama in central florida will not be letting students out to recess during the eclipse because of the potential risk to kids who look at the sun. one district sent a letter to convincing the decision was made after consulting the districts position. experts recommend viewing the eclipse through specially made glasses to prevent eye damage. they do have to be certified glasses.
6:43 am
i have a feeling many people keep their kids home then because they want to see that. >> well and it hasn't happened since 1776. >>we will be watching that. coming up on a serious side, the memorial service being held for heather higher this morning and how the president is describing those clashes between the white nationalists and the counter protesters. >> also coming up next, in his largest donation in 10 years, how bill gates we use more than $4 billion. and a new study questions the benefits of medical marijuana. why the drug might not deliver on earlier claims.

what do they need to know? >> today is kind of a normal day when it comes to, if you're getting ready to leave the bay bridge, you will have a normal slow down. but what people hate surprises. >> we have a few, at least at the bay bridge. it's pretty normal, which is to say it's backed up here, heading out to about a 25 minute delay. so that's nothing that you haven't seen as we look at the bay area bridges. we are also looking at a live look at the san mateo bridges, and that is before we actually make it onto the span. this is an approach of the richmond bridge and you see traffic here is going to be a little bit slow. i do want to mention that traffic in the south bay, and we don't have any bridges here right now but -- let me say that again. we don't have any unusual slow traffic but we do have traffic on the dumbarton bridge which is getting slow as we approach the toll plaza.
6:50 am
we have a lot of low clouds and fog and that's what weather is like to start off. since about the weekend, a temperature trend has gone way down, and it's been a slow climb up. we continue that today but, still running below average for most locations. the european forecast model from car cover from weather decisions technology, the vdt, or monday, three for some eclipse. we are here, what do you see there? i see fog. so, go inland or to higher ground. some higher clouds and fog on parts of the oregon coast, but it looks okay in eastern oregon, and also parts of idaho. there are more high clouds starting to come in. it looks like a mix of some clearing and also some clouds. that could change in five days,
6:51 am
but for us locally, it looks like the fog may be the main issue. if this is the case next monday, that will be tough for the coast and they residents to see the eclipse. today they will come but 74, livermore 75 and that is very cool. 130 below average for this time of year, 282 today. there is just a big fog bank continuing, and it keeps marching north. it fills in rapidly on most of the coast and extends well down. westwind, northerly wind at tampa, but there is something went on parts of the coast. also east at san jose and that southerly breeze has sent some temperatures up to the 50s. half-moon day is 59, and livermore is 59.

so you get the idea, everyone is put a close. 50 and melinda, 56 in vallejo, 59 in bookends and 60 in dublin. low clouds and fog will burn off sooner but, there are still little spends in the atmosphere which come back and kind of enhance that fog bank. so we are not chewing it up yet. some son in the afternoon but it's a slow process to get that fog and get clearing on the coast. the breeze will pick up a little warmer inland, but you have to go pretty far north to find those. these are still below average. you should be seeing 87 and concorde, and they are running below 60s and 70s. 79 and san jose, 79 and senate health, and 68 in san bruno, and that is 30 below average this time of year. it does look warmer away from
