good morning. i'm frank holland at cnbc headquarters. here are today's top business headlines. wall street is set to open up lower this morning. stocks gave up strong gains yesterday to close off the highs of the session. although the s&p 500 still ended at a record high. optimism over the u.s. and china trade talks of the g20, pausing a new round of tariffs. now it seems to be digested by the market and new worries about the prospects of a final trade deal. investors will get a pulse check on the state of manufacturing and the consumer today when automakers report their june sales. they're expected to have slowed last month after a strong increase in may. higher prices are keeping some buyers away, offsetting the stronger economy and record high consumer sentiment that would otherwise boost sales. about one-third of americans say they cut their spending in the last year, according to a new investing survey by cnbc, financial planning site acorns
and survey monkey. the reasons for spending less range from worries about a loss of household income and new debt to fears of recession, job loss or large medical bills from unexpected illness or injury. the survey finds twice as many democrats as republicans say they'd cut their spending due to anxiety over the economy. those are your cnbc business head you. >> some people call me frugal. >> really? >> i like to use that word, instead of cheap. i'm frugal. >> sounds richer. ironically. thanks. coming up here on "today in the bay," kari is going to have a look at that rich forecast for us. >> looks pretty good out there, as we start out with some mostly clear skies. this is a live look outside in fremont, and a lot of people heading out on 880 this morning, and we're going to see mostly clear skies. temperatures warming up and basically watching yesterday. we'll talk more about that, coming up next. the nimitz in oakland, a

sun icons as we go throughout the rest of the morning, and we start out in the upper 50s and we'll be in the upper 60s at 11:00. check out the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen showing some warmer temperatures in the forecast for the weekend, but we're enjoying the cooler weather now in brentwood as you get ready to head out the door. also some low 60s there, and mostly clear skies. let's get a look at our highs for today, for the south bay, we're up to 80 in east san jose and cupertino reaching 77 ees. we will still have that breezy wind and making you feel a little bit more comfortable with oakland today reaching 69 degrees, and 74 in hayward and for the coast, we're still seeing the clouds and the cooler temperatures there, half moon bay 61 and 77 in palo alto. mostly 60s in san francisco but look at the wind speeds, 23-mile-per-hour winds and we could even see some higher gusts. we're going to see the highs in the north bay in the upper 70s and low 80s, very seasonable
weather. the onshore flow continues but it will be gusty for half moon bay and along the coast for today, even heading into this evening, as we haven't seen any movement in our weather pattern, still high pressure bringing us still that onshore wind flow, and a couple of storm systems moving well to the north of the bay area. so as we go into the weekend, that high pressure starts to intensify a little bit, and brings us some warmer temperatures, so our temperatures go fromweekend. nothing too crazy here but a htor saturday and sunday. mike, you're taking us back to the view in palo alto. >> that's right, i zoomed in a little bit to show you that stream of lights you saw traffic crawling was because again, about this time, there's one piece of equipment here, one crew for caltrans moving back and you see the cones are there. you're down to one lane as is building traffic coming up through palo alto out of mountain view, san jose, sunnyvale, and you see it right here, right where our camera is. that's the only issue there, just construction crews and
you'll find those around the area, a reminder why you need to slow for the cones. you saw the truck and the person walking there right on the roadway as well. we're looking at folks driving carefully as well through contra costa county toward the bay bridge. no real problems. there's cash lanes, a little backup for cash lanes at the toll plaza. we don't have all lanes openffi across the span smoothly. yesterday about this time we had a crash but no problems to and from san francisco. no delays for b.a.r.t.reminder further notice there's no wifi service so if you' planning on taking that train and doing work on the way into the bay area or through the bay area, no wifi. hope you have a hot spot. back to you. >> thanks so much. a live look at sfo, where police are investigating a deadly crash. this one involving a vehicle that struck a passenger outside the international terminal. one person died. two others suffered life-threatening injuries, happened yesterday afternoon when police say the driver of an suv struck two men and a woman
