good saturday morning to you. it is 7:00 on the dot. here's a live look outside. wow, fog over the bay. and you can see downtown san francisco just peeking up in there along with the bay bridge. it looks really beautiful. a city in the clouds. good morning to you. thanks so much for joining us. i'm kira klapper. meteorologist kari hall is in for vianey with a look at our microclimate forecast. we have easter, passover, a lot going on. >> a lot going on. >> finally a little bit of a cooldown for those of us who don't have air conditioning. >> right. so warm. and it takes so long for the
7:01 am
house to cool down. even at this time in the morning, you're still trying to cool down from yesterday when we got into the 80s. >> oh, my gosh. >> in san jose. so we are starting out with a beautiful sunrise this morning. even as you step out, it feels very mild. it's in the mid 50s. only for the inland areas. and as we go throughout the day, we're going to see this fog help cool the coast, and it's a very shallow layer of fog. so it's going to help us out just a bit. but also reducing visibility in half moon bay and parts of san francisco. and then as we go into this morning, we walk out the door to some mid 50s and then seeing those highs still very warm for the inland areas. but i don't think we'll set any records today like we have been the past couple of days. we're still going to reach 80 degrees today in antioch, livermore and morgan hill. we continue on to make some near-normal temperatures heading in that direction over the next few days.
7:02 am

since 2002 to celebrate the program and make sure that seniors are not forgotten. what a great way to lead into kari hall. i love smiling about a good story and now we can smile about the weather, because it was a beautiful week, but -- too warm. >> yeah. and considering this is our first full week of spring, we didn't want to just skip over spring and go to summer, right? >> right, exactly. so now we're going back to spring. >> we're going to go back to spring in time for easter. >> thank goodness. >> here is a live look out there. we're going to take a look at some of our cameras. i just love sunrise and the first part of the day. we get to see what it looks like out there. you can see some fog rolling across the interstate right there at emeryville, and, of course, people are already up, out and about. before the inland areas, it's all clear. as we look outside, in dublin right now, it's also a fairly mild start. if you want to get your day started right going for a jog in san jose, we'll see a few clouds mixing in. and by 8:00, we're at 54 degrees. it does warm up quickly, and by
7:19 am
noon we're at 70 degrees. but i think that's still pretty perfect, and reaching into the upper 70s as the day goes along. as you check out that seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen, you see he that we will have a cooling trend on the way for the next several days. but we're heading up to 82 degrees in gilroy today. so some of our inland valleys will still be really warm. we should be in the upper 60s, near record highs in some spots. but i don't think we'll see a lot more records set. 83 will be the high in pleasanton and hayward looking at a high of 74 degrees. 76 degrees in palo alto. and 65 degrees in daly city. 65 also in ingleside and embarcadero at 68 degrees. a light southwesterly wind coming in through the north bay, and our high in novato up to 78 degrees. here is another look at that view as you can see. that shallow layer of fog moving
7:20 am
across san francisco at 2 to 500 feet at the surface. and then above that, it's all clear. so as we get dressed this morning, it's a day that you do still need a jacket to start, but short sleeves and shorts also good options as the day goes along. especially for those inland areas where it will still be very warm and sunglasses a necessity today. once that fog clears along the coast, it will be sunny there, as well. let's check out some events and some places you may be heading around the bay area. santa cruz will be perfect today. reaching the low 70s. a few clouds in the mix. and we'll hit that high temperature at about 4:00 this afternoon. there's also the easter egg hunt and parade going on today in sausalito. you may be getting up and getting the kids ready for that. make sure they have on a jacket because it will be in the low to mid 50s at the time the parade starts. low 60s for early afternoon. and tomorrow we've got union street spring celebration and the parade. that will kick off at 2:00 in
7:21 am
the afternoon. it will be at about 60 degrees, but nothing but sunshine there. and i wanted to show you what else is down the line. as we open up the picture and show you the satellite imagery, shows a few clouds moving in now. another storm system developing in the pacific. it will take a while before it gets here, but i think by thursday into friday, we'll start to see some changes in our weather. more clouds and a potential of some rain moving into the bay area. so i'll be tracking that. we'll talk about how much rain it could bring. it's coming up in the next microclimate forecast. kira? >> i'll stay tuned for that, especially if you just tell me what i need to wear. i love that, kari hall. thanks. it is 7:21. still ahead on "today in the bay," a group of local students prove why they are some of the brightest minds in the nation. they even have a trophy to prove it. a story that will make you bay area proud.
7:22 am
7:23 am
i'm april kennedy and i'm an arborist with pg&e in the sierras. since the onset of the drought, more than 129 million trees have died in california. pg&e prunes and removes over a million trees every year to ensure that hazardous trees can't impact power lines. and since the onset of the drought we've doubled our efforts. i grew up in the forests out in this area and honestly it's heartbreaking to see all these trees dying. what guides me is ensuring that the public is going to be safer and that these forests can be sustained and enjoyed by the community in the future. welcome back. many bay area universities are stocked with some of the brightest minds in our country.
7:24 am
we don't really need to prove it, but that's exactly what a group of local college students recently did. "today in the bay's" garvin thomas shares their triumph in this morning's "bay area proud." >> the school you have heard of, santa clara university. the competition you may not have. it is one that takes quick-thinking, insightful analysis and not only coming up with the right solution, but a good one. in a month, when the mind of many a sports fan is firmly fixed on a certain sport, in a place where they have had their share of success playing it, there is actually a new champion on campus. >> we think this is ultimately a social issue. >> reporter: one whose playing field is a bit smaller. and where the mental part of the game is the entire game. meet your santa clara university ethics bowl team. newly crowned national champions. >> the four of us are sitting
7:25 am
there looking at each other, having won, and all of us have tears in our eyes and are choked up and are just like what -- like, this is outstanding. >> reporter: even during such a heady time, connor, daisy, jeff and miles these days are just as likely to get questions as congratulations. like, what makes an ethics bowl? where teams argue cases in front of judges, different than traditional debates. >> not presenting arguments about things in the bay, it's applying them in ethical frameworks so it can be anything from nuclear warfare to solar flares. >> it's really more about what ought to be rather than exactly what is. >> reporter: and over the course of regional and national competitions, the santa clara team did that better than more than 200 other schools. >> there was just such a palpable feeling of camaraderie and expect among our team that i think you could never take away from us at that point. >> reporter: and while these
7:26 am
four students are very good at discussing theoretical issues, well, the one thing they have learned from all of this is something very concrete and something any of us can apply. even those playing on a basketball court this month. >> the biggest lesson i've learned is teamwork. honestly. is how to come together with a group of people and put your mind, put your effort towards something bigger than yourselves. >> reporter: the ethics bowl has been held for the past 22 years. but this santa clara team, the first team ever from california to win it. garvin thomas, nbc bay area news. >> wow, incredible. thanks, garvin. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay" coming up. major facebook fallout. why a company vp is now backtracking. also, it's become a serious national issue. sexual harassment in our schools. coming up, we'll tell you about a class some local students will soon be required to take.
