turn or recession. right now, everyone knows san francisco is humming along with venture capital money. can it require businesses to be generous when the money runs out? that's the bottom line. just encrypting its entire system end to end, means nobody not the fbi not the cia can read your messages, this as the fbi becomes more aggressive trying to read messages. the founder have whatapp says it's personal. i grew up in the ussr and the fact that people couldn't speak freely is one of the reasons my family moved to the united states. twitter, you see re-tweet and favorites and direct mess e messages to encourage people to use twitter more as a chat app. stock to watch for, the polycome phone systems, talk is

all those potter books is going up for auction. >> painted on that chair, i wrote harry potter while sitting on this chair. she got that chair for free while living in government subsidized housing in 1995, perhaps an inspiration for her. the chair was already auctioned for 29,0$29,000 back in 2009. for this current action the bidding starts at 65,0$65,000. do we have any bidders? >> i think i'll sit where i am. a little pricey for me. >> collectors of harry potter. the numbers we're looking at are actually pushing 90 today, anthony. >> we're talking record heat for most of the bay area. if you're just waking up with us we are expecting the hottest day of the bay for today. if you have to work outside, take frequent breaks and drink water. the sun coming up and by 7:00 in 15 minutes we'll be at 60 then
and you notice by lunchtime temperatures in the mid-70s in san francisco. we won't stop there. 3:00, 86 degrees and in the mid-70s. across the rest of the bay area, it's hot. if you know it's hot in san francisco better believe it's hot in the inland valleys. >> degrees for the south bay and north bay and 90 expected for the peninsula. what we're experiencing today is because of a high pressure extending to northern california towards socal. for us, it's driving in very warm air from the desert southwest and 90 for inland location and 80s for coastal. look what happens tomorrow. we go all the way back to 70s and 80s are out of here and we will have 60s tomorrow with the coastline. we don't stop there. by friday, we replace our 90s with 60s for most of the bay area. that comes with showers as well. big drop in temperatures

behind me plenty of traffic to consider. the standard flow right there at university. look at your map. slow from the racetrack to university. on the approach, richmond not looking so bad and the berkeley curve, recovery, things looking better as well. you can do that on spring break weeks rotating as we have right now. the next one is a big one. in the north bay nevada towards san rafael, nothing surprising there or across the bay except for peninsula south bay, 280 at woodside, report of a tour bus or shuttle bus on the side of the road and smoke and maybe flame from underneath it. folks on the shoulder, a little distraction. southbound from university to embark der re. you have that lane shift and not a lot of slowing. back to you. now to a story you will see only on nbc bay area. state regulators asking lawmakers for millions of dollars to pay for their legal
fees. this stems from the corruption investigation into the public utilities commission and pg&e after the san bruno pipeline explosion. they say they need another 6 million dollars to pay two law firms. san bruno's state senator, jerry hill, says he will try to block this request again. when he i tried to do that last year they threatened to cut programs and state lawmakers ended up caving. >> this is ridiculous, crazy, an outrage and slap in the face of taxpayers in the state of california. we have reached out to the puc for comments and they have not returned our request. another fight at santa clara county's main jail. we have this picture showing the aftermath of the inmates. it was on lock-down about an hour before returning to normal. the jail has been making a lot of headlines recently, last month, newly installed cameras
