credit cards.com says only 39% of card holders know their interest rates. the average credit card interest rate is around 17%. here's a useful tip for you, it really doesn't hurt to call the credit card company and ask them to lower your rate. it doesn't hurt and doesn't affect anything. they say often times this works. >> there you go. >> it is 4:42. we're going to check in with kari hall with a look at our forecast for the week. >> looks pretty good. in fact today starts out cooler than the weather we had over the weekend. taking a live look outside in fremont and temperature trend, mid-50s through 8:00, a lot of sunshine and comfortable highs in the upper 60s there. we'll talk about the rest of the week coming up next. a live look at dublin, 580 moves very smoothly towards the interchange. sti till tracking an incident to 84. more coming up. live pictures of,

clouds through about 9:00 then skies will clear out by late morning, early afternoon, lunch outside today as highs head up to the low 70s for south bay. 74 in gilroy and 72 in san jose. low 70s for much of the east bay, anty of course, 74 degrees and oakland expect a high of 65. upper 50s for half moon bay and upper 60s for palo alto. san francisco low 60s for this afternoon and it's still going to be windy, those winds rushing in from the west at 16 miles per hour. more of the same from the north bay. highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s, you start out with a jacket then you may need a light long sleeve and pants today to keep comfortable as we get a lot of sunshine. if you're heading to the sierra over the next couple of days, head's up we've seen these storms firing up over the past 12 hours and there will be the chance that we could still see this disturbance spinning just to the east of us and that will
bring in some elevated areas of some thunderstorms for parts of the sierra. while we will continue on with dry weather, only seeing an increase in cloud cover on wednesday. maybe a couple of spotty showers for some of our higher elevations and then warming up as we go through the week inland. san francisco keeps the upper 50s to low 60s through the week. mike, now you're checking out two reports from chp? >> two reports and no major issues from the initial report but the one in oakland may be an issue. i'll get out of your way. you see the sensors around the bay, almost all of them showing green. we were hearing about this report of highway 84 and there's a little slowing that develops right there and that's early for this slowdown to occur. i'm going to say it's at least a distraction, sounds like a fendsfends fender bender. dublin interchange is okay. a bigger concern, we see slowing southbound 880 approaching 16th where i just heard about a crash there in the area as well.
chp should arrive zoon and give me detail. it did sound there may be one vehicle that may have trouble getting removed there. we'll track that. over here at contra costa county, marin county, all moving smoothly aside from the one crash in oakland. a live look shows san rafael, southbound 101 light flow of traffic down to the golden gate bridge. and across the san mateo bridge west 92 shows an easy dry towards foster city and the peninsula. back to you. >> thanks, mike. >> legalizing marijuana in california was supposed to help the black market pot business go legit but weed is still -- and most banks won't touch the money. >> which makes it by and large cash only. as liz wagner found, all of that cash is causing problems. >> reporter: people in the industry carrying cash are vulnerable to violent attacks that can also endanger the public. many are turning to security companies to lockup their cash in cars like this one to keep it
safe on the roads. we hitched a ride with hard car. we drove to a dispensary when armed agents picked up the taxes, $1 billion in tax revenue alone. there's a lot of cash floating around the stay. pot growers say not having a bank is dangerous and bad for business. >> what does that do to you and burden you? >> raising money and going to institutional investors and stuff like that and saying we don't have a bank account or it is all operating cash, it's hard without a relationship with an investor to build that trust. >> what are the work arounds? lying to banks about how they make their money? turning cash into cryptocurrency. >> reporter: coming up we investigate the creative way pot businesses are protecting and even hiding their cash. that's tonight at 11:00. see you then. >> if you want to get a hold of
