7:01 am
yesterday. upper 80s inland. a few still near 90 degrees. san jose, 89. after yesterday's 94. that was a record. redwood city, 98 down to 88. napa down five 93 to 88 degrees. we're slowly cooling off. 58 half moon bay compared to 80 at this time yesterday. berkeley is down considerably. other locations are down one to ten. there is an easterly or northeasterly breeze. east at half moon bay. northeast at sfo. east at oakland. even though it is less than 5 miles per hour, it is still there. on the peninsula, low 50s. half moon bay, monetra and moss beach are upper 50s to low 60s. we have high pressure losing its grip slightly. but it will give us warm temps into friday and cooling over the weekend. temperatures should be 68 to 74. they are way above that for everybody. 70s and 80sand near 90s
7:02 am
degrees. sal, anything new on the screens. >> just a lot of slow traffic, steve. >> okay. >> this is the heart of the commute. i would say between 6:00 and 8:00 or so. not that the other parts aren't bad or aren't slow. but this is really the slowest part. on the golden gate bridge, it is a beautiful shot we have of the golden gate bridge. and the traffic looks good from the robin williams tunnel down to the toll plaza in san francisco as you drive into the marina district. also looking at the bay bridge. and traffic will be okay. but at the toll plaza, there's a wait of about 20 minutes. if you're driving through. now, the traffic on the east shore freeway is going to be taking about 45 minutes to drive from the carquinez bridge down to this point. we're also looking at interstate 880 north and southbound. you can see northbound traffic here in front of oracle looks good. southbound slows at 238. really a lot of it is under the speed limit or less than 25 miles per hour in many areas all the way down to fremont.
7:03 am
at 7:02, back to the desk. >> be ready for another unseasonably warm day around the bay area. we had record breaking temperatures yesterday. >> as steve told you, it will be hotter than normal all week. alex savidge is in san francisco. talk about how people there are handling the heat. >> reporter: well, you know, it gets warm in october. we know that here in the bay area. but never usually gets this hot, this late in the month. we are out here at crissy field in san francisco. pretty nice morning. people walking or jogging. and it is not too warm just yet. but of course the sun is rising. so it's going to start warming up in a hurry here. the bay area headed into day two of a late season heat wave. a lot of records shattered yesterday. all across the region. in oakland, mountain view, and san jose. just to name a few. also it was 91 degrees in -- at sfo. that was the temperature at sfo
7:04 am
yesterday. across the board, temperatures anywhere between 10 and 20 degrees above normal for this time of year. of course the real concern is these hot, dry conditions are leading to increased fire danger, especially worrisome for people up in the north bay. even with all of the rain we got last week, a decent amount of rain, the threat of wildfires remains. >> with the couple days of heat that we've had and the wind, you know, it's -- it's gone now. it's not doing us any good. >> our concern is this is our dryest time of the year. the fuels are dried out. they're ready to burn. >> reporter: now, the real good news in all of this is especially compared to what we saw yesterday morning, it was -- it was very breezy yesterday morning. the winds this morning are very calm. no red flag warnings in place. but still firefighters on alert nonetheless because you do have dry conditions and you have very warm conditions. and so that obviously makes it easier for a fire to take off.
7:05 am
if a fire were to start. bringing you back out here to the live picture here. nice shot of the golden gate bridge as the sun begins to come up here. it's going to be slightly cooler today, as steve told you, compared to yesterday. but it will be warm all week long. and then finally we get the cooldown coming up this weekend. relief in sight. >> yes. >> alex, thank you. >> thank you, alex. the time is 7:05. today is day three of the san francisco trial of jose ynez garcia zarate, the undocumented immigrant charged with shooting and killing kate steinle at a san francisco pier. allie rasmus is live in san francisco at the hall of justice in san francisco with the details of the emotional testimony yesterday and what we can expect today. good morning, allie. >> reporter: good morning, dave. jurors are expecting to hear from crime scene investigators who went to the scene after kate steinle was killed.
7:06 am
this happened two years ago on pier 14. they heard from witnesses yesterday who were on pier 14 at the scene. jose ynez garcia zarate has admitted that he was handling the gun that was used in the shooting but his attorneys argued that the gun accidentally went off. it was reported stolen from a ranger the week before. steinle's family has been in the courtroom all week. her mother went yesterday when prosecutors showed the jury a photograph of her daughter on the pier taken moments before she was shot. it showed steinle in the foreground and you could see jose ynez garcia zarate in the background sitting in a chair on the embarcadero. >> so it's effective. i mean, it is really effective. i doubt that the d.a. showed the parents that photograph and let them to react in the courtroom to it. jurors watch that. that's the emotional part of a trial. i mean, that cuts right to your heart. when you see that, it really brings home, there's a beautiful young woman whose life was taken because of this
7:07 am
man. >> reporter: now, yesterday, two witnesses testified that through their hotel window, they saw jose ynez garcia zarate leave the pier after a single gunshot rang out. another witness says before the shooting he was sitting at the pier and people laughing and he thought that was odd. an analyst described what they described as odd behavior from zarate in court. he was staring at people and grinning repeatedly at inappropriate times. reporters later asked his attorney about his client's mental stability. his attorney says they don't plan to make any sort of argument that jose ynez garcia zarate is mentally incompetent to stand trial. they say that is not at play at this point in the trial. but jose ynez garcia zarate faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted on that second degree murder trial. back to you guys. >> allie rasmus in san francisco, thank you. the time is now 7:07. a teenager from santa cruz accused of killing an 8-year- old girl two years ago will be
7:08 am
tried as an adult. adrian gonzales was 15 years old when he was arrested for the killing of madison middleton. he is accused of luring her into her mother's apartment and raping and stabbing her to death. her body was later found in a recycling bin. police seguin gone confessed during taped interviews. if he is convicted, gonzales could get life in prison. we have new information in connection to an overnight shooting that left two people dead at grambling state university in louisiana. today's classes are going on as scheduled at grambling state. a predominantly african- american college in louisiana about 250 miles northwest of new orleans. around midnight there was a fight in a dorm room that spilled out to a courtyard. a 23-year-old student and his friend were shot to death. that friend was not a student. police say the shooter was able to escape. police in pleasanton say a high school student has been arrested for having a loaded
7:09 am
handgun on campus. the police were called 1:15 monday morning. the student was arrested and taken to juvenile hall. they do not know why he had the weapon. a 13-year-old student was arrested in menlo park on monday when he brought a gun to school. police say the 8th grade male student left school without permission after the principal asked to search his backpack. the student was stopped while walking from the school and during a search police say they found an unloaded hand gun as well as marijuana. there is a warning for students at stanford. campus police there are investigating reports of a sexual assault. it happened on the east side of campus just after midnight on monday. police say the victim and suspect were known to one another. a warning was sent out to students last night. the investigation continues this morning. our time is now 7:09. cleaning up in the north bay after those destructive wildfires. coming up at 7:30, what the epa plans to do today.
7:10 am
also the warning for people who are going back to their homes. also, we're hearing from some of the democratic candidates in the race for governor next year. what they say are some of the biggest issues facing our state. state. and we do see traffic that is going to be busy now on the san mateo bridge. it is a little slower than it was even a half hour ago, heading over to san mateo. lots of sunshine. it will still be warm today. probably not record setting 92 degrees like it was in half moon bay yesterday. but it will be nice on the coast. more on that coming up.
7:11 am
7:12 am
>> arizona senator jeff flake announced he will not run for a second term during a fiery speech on the senate floor, one that targeted president trump. >> reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior has become excused as telling it like it is. when it is actually just
7:13 am
reckless, outrageous undignified. senator flake becomes the second republican senator to lash out at president trump. corker who is also restoring has been involved in an ongoing twitter feud with the president. he isn't concerned about the loss of these two senators. >> he wants people to be in the senate that are committed to actually moving the ball down the field. i don't think these two individuals necessarily have been as focused on that. the president wants to get things done. >> president trump had lunch with senate republicans yesterday on capitol hill where he continued to push his tax reform proposal. the presidential campaign of hillary clinton and the democratic national committee helped to pay for research that was included in a dosier about president trump. at first a gop donor paid for the research on president trump during the primary. when the primaries were over

7:15 am
big issues. >> reporter: it may be the early days of the governor race with the election more than a year away. but the candidates know the importance of momentum and money. lieutenant governor newsome leads in both. >> why do i support single payor? it is the most comprehensive way to give health care to all of the uninsured and in an affordable manner. >> reporter: delaine easton. >> pennywise and pound foolish not to approach it with a full heart and eye like an eagle. we do have to figure out additional resources to do that. >> reporter: former vilaraigosa dismissed a bill saying it did not provide enough details how the state would pay for it. >> pie in the sky doesn't put it on the table. we have to make the tough choices and put a plan together so we can transition. >> reporter: john chiang also called for a more measured
7:16 am
approach. >> i support single payor but i would look at what services we provide and scale up and see what revenues we have. we can't cover everything. >> reporter: the candidates agreed on many issues including education and immigration and that the state needs to do more to address the housing criess that leads to so many people living on the streets. vilaraigosa and newsome say it is wrong to offer exceptions to billionaires to build stadiums and not cities that want to build supportive housing for the homeless. heather holmes, ktvu fox 2 news. >> thank you, heather. he will join us live on the 9 this morning. the time is 7:16. we had an active traffic report, starting from the wee hours of the morning, sal. >> yeah. we had the tree fire that everyone in our news room smelled. not far from where we are.
7:17 am
we also had other things. let's look at some of the commutes. i want to mention if you are going to the bay bridge, traffic will be moderate on the span. there will be slowing at the toll plaza, which is, you know, not unusual. this is about a 20-minute delay. we have a lot of the usual suspects when it comes to slow traffic. this morning we mentioned the san mateo bridge has become a lot slower in the last half hour. southbound 880 and a lot of people do this, go all the way across. and most of that is slow. likewise for the dumbarton bridge getting over to the peninsula. 580 is still slow on the altamont pass. but it has cleared up through livermore and dublin. but slow on 680 as you head south. again, all very typical. let's dive into the south bay, shall we? 85 is slow from 101. check this out. all the way up. this didn't used to be this way. it is becoming normal for 85 to be one of the busiest freeways. i think people have grown tired of 101. it is still slow. but 85 is now becoming a second
7:18 am
101, if you will. 7:17. let's bring steve in. eve in. >> probably heading over to mountain view, if you know what i mean. >> cupertino. >> cupertino, mountain view. >> exactly. >> today might be a record day for a few, but not as many as yesterday. it will be close for mountain view, speaking of, and san jose. temperatures will be warm, but not as warm as yesterday. we maxed out yesterday on the temps. way above average here. these are the records to beat, if you will. the forecast highs are in the red there. oakland airport forecast high is 86. sfo, 85. those would fall short. mountain view, 89. the record is 90 from 2003. very close. i don't think the northerly breeze will kick in. san francisco, missed by one yesterday. the high was 89. the record was 90. the record between now and
7:19 am
friday were all set in 2003. high today, 84 degrees. much above average but not in record-setting territory. 50s on the temps. 57 now half moon bay. that's half moon bay. versus 80 at this time yesterday. same for the observation in berkeley, which is also 78, 79 at this time yesterday. some are down 20 degrees. even though there is a easterly or northeasterly component coming in off of the hills. this observation in oakland is up about a thousand feet. you get closer to town and you can find 60s there. still warm in the city. now at 65 degrees. a lot of mid-60s in san francisco. and there is still a slight easterly breeze. 61, san rafael. 50 in petaluma. bodega bay, 53. that is down 17 from yesterday at this time. windsor in there as well. but temperatures today will rebound. high pressure not going anywhere. it is slowly starting to back off a little bit here.
7:20 am
27 up in truckee. and 50s throughout much of the val i42 heavenly. 45 incline. and tahoe city at 41 degrees. south lake tahoe at 29. deep system out over the hawaiian islands. that low has tapped into moisture coming up from the south and giving them heavy rain. coming up from florida, going straight into new york and much of the northeast. so somewhere we have to find high pressure. guess what, it is right over the west. it took the storm track and sent it well to the north. inching back into the pacific northwest which will lead to a breaking down of the ridge. it will take until the weekend before it let's go. cooler coast and bay even though temps above average here. daytime highs, 70s, 80s, and a few 90s holding on for a day. if the change doesn't start tomorrow it will kick in friday for sure. temperatures should be 68 to 74 average this time of year. everybody is way above on that. we will continue to do so until
7:21 am
probably sunday, gasia. >> steve, thank you. 7:21 now. a complaint against uber. next, what two former engineers have to say about how women are seen by that company.

picture. this is an ordinary slowdown getting out to the richmond bridge. don't worry about anything unusual. if you're driving to the macarthur maze, also it has become typical for the drive to take about an hour between the carquinez bridge and the macarthur maze. when you get to the bay bridge toll plaza it's about 15 to 20- minute delay before you make it on to the span. not a bat commute. southbound 101 traffic is a little slow. by the way if you're heading down the peninsula, trying to choose either 280 or 101, they're both about the same, which is to say it is slow down to san bruno. here is a look at 880 northbound. also slowing down from about 238 on the way to downtown oakland. pardon me. i had to sneeze there. 8:03, back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. ktvu's alex savidge is joining us live from san francisco with more on how people are cope withing the warm weather. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning to both of you. we are heading into day two of

8:07 am
testimony from numerous firearms experts over the course of the trial. >> the real question here is did he pull the trigger of that gun intentionally or did it accidentally fire? experts will get on and talk about that gun and say the trigger pull is ten pounds. ten pounds. so it is not going to fire very easily. if it wasn't in aed position. if it was in a position when mr. zarate picked it up, it is more likely to have misfired. >> reporter: now, yesterday in court, two witnesses testified that through their hotel window they saw zarate leave the pier after a single gunshot. before the shooting he was sitting at the pier people watching and laughing. and the behavior made a witness uncomfortable. they described as odd behavior from jose ynez garcia zarate. he was staring at people and
8:08 am
grinning repeatedly at inappropriate times. reporters later asked jose ynez garcia zarate's attorney about his client's mental state. the attorney says they don't at this point plan to make any sort of argument about jose ynez garcia zarate being mentally incompetent to stand trial. we will see if that changes as the trial and as the course -- the course of the trial goes on. but jose ynez garcia zarate faced up to 15 years in prison if convicted of the second degree murder charge he is facingment back to you, mike and gasia. >> allie rasmus live in san francisco. thank you. a teenager accused of santa cruz accused of killing an 8- year-old girl two years ago will be tried as an adult. he was 15 when he killed madison. he lured her into his mother's apartment and raping her and stabbed her to death. her body was found in a nearby recycling bin. he confessed during taped interviews. if convicted he could get life in prison. american airlines plans to meet with the naacp after the group issued a travel warning
