7:01 am
it is warm but temperatures are coming down a little bit. open up the house to cool things down after that ac kicked on. we will be above average but we peaked a couple of days ago. today should be the day where we fall short. 70s and 80s but still warm. a little bit cooler for some in san jose 87 for the high. the record is 89 but the average is 71. 16 above the highside. fog toward eureka with resistance as we have this slight offshore wind. i think it is about 80% offshore with a couple showing the west wind. 40s and 50s. santa rosa 47, fairfield 48 and mid-50s with 60s across the area. some 50 degree readings in san
7:02 am
ramon and walnut creek. 60 in antioch, 62 in martinez and berkeley at 56. low clouds will show tomorrow night with this weak system undercutting the ridge but that will take a while. every day we will bring down temperatures a few degrees. sunny and warm today with some lighter wind but it is offshore so the temperatures will be warming up to the 80s. we have been all over the map.>> we are starting at the macarthur maze because it is a mess. westbound 80, look at this. it is slow because of this earlier crash on the bay bridge. it lasted long enough to create this. it is taking one hour to get from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze and then you start the stopwatch for another 30 minutes of waiting before getting to the span.
7:03 am
highway 24 i wanted to show you this next but let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza. there it is and highway 24 was also slow. you might want to think about using the san mateo bridge on southbound 880 looking slow. the dumbarton bridge is not bad yet. 680 is slow coming out of pleasanton. to the south some of the freeways went from not a lot of traffic to a lot. 85 northbound and here is a look at 280 out of san jose. all of a sudden we have a lot of slowing. let's get back to the desk. anyone taking commercial flights into the united states will be subject to strict security measures. >> homeland security has ordered the changes. alex savidge has been out at sfo for a while.>> reporter: good morning.
7:04 am
this could cause delays for international travelers. starting today they will be facing security interviews and enhanced screenings. these rules will impact 2100 flights every single day from around the world bound for us airports including sfo. starting today all travelers including us citizens may be questioned by employees as they check in or even at the gate before boarding their flight. the tsa says that electronic devices could be more thoroughly inspected before any flight headed to the us. these screenings will vary from airline to airline. some passengers say that questioning international travelers bound for the us could help prevent terrorist attacks. >> it depends on the questions they are asking. also, what kind of checking are they doing? i am all for the security.
7:05 am
>> reporter: these new security measures are taking the place of a previous ban on laptops onboard us bound flights from eight predominantly muslim countries. that was rolled out by the trump administration several months ago but a lot of airlines are concerned these security interviews prior to the flights could delay the boarding process or some international carriers that are urging travelers bound for the us to arrive three hours ahead of time.>> alex savidge, thank you. cal fire crews have 92% containment on all the north bay wildfires. the atlas fire near the lake is the closest at 97%. the pocket fire near geyserville has the smallest containment. if weather conditions don't change much all of the big fires could be encircled as early as tomorrow.
7:06 am
these numbers are from very late last night. we do expect to get an update in the next 30 minutes. the bear fire in boulder creek is 95% contained. it will be completely controlled by tonight. the santa cruz sheriff has not ruled out arson. the sheriff's office wants to question several people about the fire. people who live in the burn zone have been posting theories on how the fire started on facebook. one theory focuses on a woman who lives near the area where the fire started. the sheriff's office has not commented on those postings. the san francisco trial of josi zarate the man charged with murder will continue today. the most riveting moment in court yesterday was when the prosecution played a digitally enhanced security video of the moment that kate steinle was
7:07 am
killed. the video also shows zarate walking away after throwing a gun into the water. police officers took the stand including a member of the dive team who found the weapon. another officer testified that jose garcia zarate appeared to be a deer in the headlights when he was tracked down one hour after the shooting. >> evidence comes in with every witness and everything is going as expected. these witnesses paint a picture of the evidence in the case.>> we think fundamentally the physical evidence favors our position no matter what these witnesses say. at the end of the day this is a ricochet and that bullet hit a place where it was pointed. >> the defense lawyer argues
7:08 am
the shooting was an accident and the bullet that killed kate steinle first hit the ground and then ricocheted. drinking fountains have been shut down at three public schools after tests showed high levels of lead. the schools are west portal and malcolm x. tests show that water samples from one faucet show that each site contain too much lead. the problem is in the plumbing according to the schools. they are working to fix the problem, in the meantime they will provide bottled water for students. today could be a make or break day for the republican tax reform effort. the house will vote on a budget deal and it is expected to be close. doug luzader with the story. >> this is a day when vote wranglers earn their keep. the president will tell you he is confident. >> they are passing along the bill very rapidly.
7:09 am
it will have been hopefully today. i said fellas please, no changes. >> just pass it along, but it is not that simple. the house will vote today on the budget bill passed by the senate. if it passes tax reform can move forward but that is far from certain. some won't like the impact the tax cut deal will have on the budget deficit and gop members from high tax states don't like the idea of shelving a deduction for state and local taxes to fund the cuts. >> i will have to vote no. it is the budget that will bring about this tax reform and it will be devastating. >> the president is looking for a win. his job approval numbers are slipping now at 38%. something not lost on democrats as they work to nix the deal. >> this proposal raises taxes
7:10 am
on the middle class. it borrows trillions from the future to give tax cuts to the wealthy. today the vote is expected to be very close. republicans can only lose two votes to pass the plan. deadline day for president trump spore wall. coming up, what the president has to say about the work being done. kellogg's is changing the look of its cereal boxes. why some people claim the cartoon on it was racist. we have a lot of slow traffic in several areas. the south bay and the north bay. we will tell you all about it coming up in a few moments. another warm day although the temperatures are coming down a few degrees. we will see what is in store for the weekend, coming up.
7:11 am
he's brought us to the brink of nuclear war. obstructed justice at the fbi. and in direct violation of the constitution, he's taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer and, like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. a republican congress once impeached
7:12 am
a president for far less. yet, today, people in congress and his own administration know this president is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. and they do nothing. join us and tell your member of congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what's political and start doing what's right. our country depends on it.
7:13 am
developing news from indonesia where a fireworks factory exploded today. this is video from indonesia television. 47 people have died many others are injured and the death toll will likely rise. some survivors have life- threatening burns. the roof of the building collapsed following the explosion. local officials say the factory opened a couple of months ago but it was illegally built too close to a residential area. police in finland say that for -- for my people were killed in a collision. three soldiers died, the fourth person killed was a passenger on the train. 11 others were taken to the hospital. the crash occurred at a railroad crossing that does not have track safety features and visibility may have been limited.
7:14 am
it was snowing at the time of the collision. today is the deadline for companies that want to build president trump's boulder wall. the companies have built eight prototypes near the mexican border south of san diego. four are made of concrete the others are made of steel. they are between 18 and 30 feet high. president trump says he is pleased with what he has seen so far. >> we have six prototypes that are top-of-the-line. we have some incredible people if you look at the border patrol. i have had the people at that level. they do this and they know more than anybody. they also know the systems. we will look at the wall and we will get it built. it is going to be quite the wall.>> now that the prototypes are complete testing begins to determine which wall would be the most effective. the trump administration has
7:15 am
asked congress for $1.6 billion in financing to start the project. president trump is expected to declare that opioid abuse is a national emergency. the decoration will likely waive restrictions sending medical personnel to the areas hardest hit by the epidemic. opioid abuse kills tens of thousands of americans every year. president trump pledged to make fighting addiction a top priority. let's get you out the door by saying good morning to sal castaneda. >> we have a lot of slow traffic everywhere in the east bay. the south bay is not getting the way with a light commute though. let's look at the east shore freeway and the macarthur maze. we have a lot of slow traffic and part of the reason was because of this earlier accident that was not serious in the way of injuries, but it slow traffic on the bridge. they had to slow the metering
7:16 am
lights and then we had a backup for about one hour to drive from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. westbound 24 is also slow getting to the bay bridge toll plaza. the commute this morning has also been slow driving on 880 south from 238 down into stephenson and fremont. there is slow traffic on 580 and 680 but the south bay commute is beginning to fill in with 85 slowing just after one- on-one. that is kind of new and it is thing like that all the way into cupertino. at 7:16 let's bring in steve paulson with your forecast. we have clear skies although there was fog to the north trying to make its way down here. probably not until tomorrow night. there's too much of an offshore breeze and that breeze
7:17 am
yesterday with dominant high- pressure gave us some records. two locally and two down south. 94 degrees tied the record. los angeles was 100 again with the old record at 96. san diego was 98 degrees, that was also the old record in 1983. there is hot weather here so there must be cold weather somewhere else. you can see we are looking at snow in north dakota and minnesota maybe even into iowa talking about snowflakes making it that far south. the system is turning very cool throughout the great lakes. 89 yesterday in santa rosa. 87 today, 86 in concord, 89 in san jose. san francisco 80. 12 degrees
7:18 am
above average for the high and 10 above the average low. we have some fog up to the north that is trying but it needs help with some kind of front but that is not here yet. 50 at half moon bay, 48 in fairfield, 52 sunnyvale and palo alto. a little bit cooler at stanford 51. over on the coast pacifica is 59 but lower 50s at half moon bay and montero. some of the fog is trying but tomorrow will be a better opportunity. 50s for many except for the mountains. 60s and 70s into southern california. around lake tahoe 67. this system in the hawaiian islands is beginning to kick out a little bit looking much better than it was. we have a weak low eventually undercutting the ridge increasing the fog and the
7:19 am
onshore breeze. the tide is turning but high- pressure is still keeping us well above average with sunny and warm temps. eventually we will start to cool going into the weekend. sunny and warm for one more day with a little bit cooler conditions. there is a little bit of a breeze in the higher elevations but 70s, 80s with a couple of 90s. mostly in the 80s for everybody. anywhere from about 15 degrees above average for many including the santa clara valley. each day we are cooling off a little bit but we will really kick it in starting this weekend. are you contributing to your 401(k)? congress is considering drastic changes to the popular investment plan. also, are you looking for a new place to live? the bay area cities that have seen the highest rent increases
