5:34 am
talking about that humidity in the air, sticky, icky, a little bit. >> just call me swampy. 59 degrees in concord, good morning oakland and 52 in sunnyvale. we have a good looking day shaping up. it isn't going to be quite as sticky out there. you'll notice a little moisture. but the good news is we got those showers yesterday. now our atmosphere has been cleansed. 88 degrees. 75 bay side at the coast today. right around 64 degrees. lots of sunshine for the second half of the day. but let me just tell you, as we head through the next 20 minutes, we are going to see a phenomenal sun rise, beautiful colors in the sky. 5:34, here's mike, you get to drive to work under a nice sun ride. >> we talk about those low clouds and here you can't see the sun or the roadway. here you can see the roadway.
5:35 am
here's that low that christina is talking about, the moisture, the humidity in the air. look at the north freeway past university avenue. those are the headlights down toward the bay bridges. a smooth flow but you can't see much farther. the maps also show a similar situation with the mass transit system. a smooth flow except for one spot in the eastbound direction. from lafayette over towards pittsburgh. we have delays 15 to 20 minutes because of a problem with an overnight maintenance vehicle that's heading east, or counter commute, heading out of lafayette and north and east out of pittsburgh. caltrans not reporting any delays. this is the same stretch i'm going to report to you light here on the map. the commute from highway 4 down 680 and over 424 that's moving equally as smooth. and we'll look at the palo alto,
5:36 am
a live look here, the peninsula having an easy drive. southbound with those taillights, 101 and 280 between palo alto and the city. >> you know the roads well, mike. the chp teaming up with law enforcement nation wise for a special crackdown on interstate 80. from san francisco all the way to new jersey, officers will be on i-80 for the start of the i-80 charge. it's a week-long effort for zero fatalities on the roadway across the u.s. when we think of i-80 we usually think of the bay bridge on the way to taho, but that interstate runs through all 11 states. officers in all 11 interstates will team up trying to slow down drivers. it's the second largest interstate only after i-90 running from seattle to boston.
5:37 am
speeding is blamed for most of the fatalities during the year, with most happening the last week in july. 5:37 right now, i think we call this the royal baby extravagan extravaganza. we just heard that queen elizabeth has just arrived at kensington palace to see her new great grandson, the two-day old prince, spending his very first night at home with parents william and kate. live in london where we're waiting for the name now of the new prince, good morning. >> good morning, and this little prince has had quite the busy life, he's met his grandmother the queen, he's met his uncle prince harry. and we hear the couple is on their way to an undecembisclose location. we're trying to confirm that
5:38 am
they're headed to buckle bury. kate would likely like to have some time and support from her own mother. one of the things they still need to do over the next couple of days is pick the young prince's name. they did say they're working from a short list, although they want to take some time to get to know him. and of course this is going to be historic, whatever they choose in terms of his name, so they want to make sure it's a name that really fits before they go ahead and choose one for the rest of his little life, they are enjoying parenthood, they made that very clear yesterday when we saw them emerge from that hospital for the first time with their baby and now the world is just celebrating and continuing to enjoy this new little life. people here in london, though, i have to tell you, you can dea definitely sense they're getting back to normal as the reality has begun settling in. >> a new routine for them. thank you very much. >> diapers and feeding. 5:38 right now, back here at home, americans not happy with
5:39 am
lawmakers. we'll tell you about the new numbers out this morning to prove it. >> plus why we could soon learn the names of all the officers involved in that infamous pepper pr spray incident at uc davis two years ago.
5:40 am
5:41 am
this is really a shocker. live in washington, d.c. right now with the latest poll indicating tracy that the majority of americans definitely want change. >> we're also seeing that the majority of americans are getting more and more frustrated. we're taking a look at these numbers that came out overnight from the nbc "wall street journal" poll. taking a look at congress, 12%. that's their approval rating, barely one in ten, 83% is their disapproval rating.
5:42 am
six out of ten people who were polled said if they could they would get rid of every single member of congress, including their own and start all over. the president's numbers also not looking that great. he's got a 45% approval rating which is really only one point away from his lowest ever in this survey. and while there ee's partisansh and gridlock on capitol hill, republicans say they blame the gridlock on the republicans, the democrats and most independents blaming it on both parties here in congress. so all of this is a backdrop to those budget discussions that are set to begin very soon. they don't have a lot of time before october 1, which is the beginning of the next fiscal year. >> we're waiting to hear what kind of reception the president gets and also what he has to say. a state court has now ruled newspapers can publish the names of the campus police officers
5:43 am
involved in that infamous pepper spraying scene at uc davis. the state appellate court says all of the names of the officers involved may be printed. but it told the sacramento times and sacramento bee that they cannot immedtely obtained the names. this all happened back in 2011 when a group of protesters were pepper sprayed during a peaceful protest. a new lawsuit -- africans maritime sailing team claims the golden gate yault club did not act in food faith. the nonprofit group trains young african-americans to be competitive sailors. this group is now seeking an inswrungation to delay the events scheduled to start in september. the golden gate yacht club says it is confident the cup will go
5:44 am
on as planned. the two sides expected to meet with a new york judge today to determine if in fact there will be a hearing. in the meantime, you can still head out to the bay this morning. want to check the forecast from christina loren. >> it's really hard to predict conditions in the bay. which is why it makes for such dangerous conditions out there. some people actually say they shouldn't even have that race in the san francisco bay because it is so dangerous. yeah, a lot of debate happening around that one. 5: 44 now, no debate about this being a beautiful sun rise. isn't that nice? we're getting the peeks of the oranges. a good way to start the day, with good air quality, you'll notice that difference right wh when you walk out that front door. starting out the day in the 50s and 60s. not much fog in san jose, between 8:00 and 9:00, it's all going to start to burn off.
5:45 am
between 10:00 and 11:00, all the skies are going to clear. things are going to start to get a little bit back to normal, more so as we head throughout the next couple of days, we're going to lose that humidity. more of a dry heat. temperatures feeling 91 degrees in livermore today. 67, if you want to hit the beach today, we won't see as much fog as we did yesterday, that's the good news. a great beach city is going to be santa cruz, maybe you want to go camping or do a little fishing in big sur, it's going to be in the 70s all weekend long. 50s to start the stay, but 75 degrees both saturday and sunday out there. and they still have campsites available. so you should check into that if that's something you're interested in doing. 87 degrees in san jose, you don't want to kick yourself come winter time when it's too cold and foggy to get out there. although i'll let you know when you can get some breaks from
5:46 am
that fog and cold, we're with you year round. 91 sunday, monday, tuesday, 90 degrees. some kids do have year round school, but we have had a lighter than normal drive this summer but it really depends on what's happening out there and what day it is. >> look at the bay bridge toll plaza, they are backing up, nothing unusual. and the commute is compressed to a shorter duration, but it duds hit pretty hard when it does hit the east bay and especiallily the south bay over the summer months. the east shore freeway as christina was talking about, from south to north, we see clouds hovering just above the roadway. we'll look at oakland, 880 coming up past the coliseum. a good volume of traffic north and south, now you're still at the limit through this area, but a good number of cars, again,
5:47 am
watching for potential issues. the map a little farther south of here, not a problem as you're heading through 238. it's eastbound 92 just before you get to 880, we don't see any real slowing, but we'll track that anyway. meanwhile farther east, the build in volume coming into livermore and also west 84 down through livermore, it's nod too bad, but you're building up and you got a lot more company now. north of there, we did have a stall in lanes as well as -- you might see a little bit of slowing heading there. the south bay by comparison moving very well. controversial bar is about to open in downtown san jose, it's a bikini bar, called the gold club. it's opening next month at the corner of west santa clara and
5:48 am
market street, just a few blocks from city hall. it's a bikini bar meaning no knew newtity and no topless dancing. i'm not expecting much because this is a part-time job and i'm trying to break into the industry as a bar tender, so you know like i'll take what i get. it's not so much about the money, it's really about the experience. >> the bar is located in a historic location, it's the old san jose building and loan association building. the building housed a nightclub before is zoned for entertainment and has a permit for serving alcohol. a public high school holding a community meeting tonight to talk to parents about the recent invalidation of advanced students placement test scores. the santa clara school board deciding to pursue legal action against the testing service and the college board.
