5:41 am
the warmest day on saturday, with sunshine reaching 92 degrees, but we'll have some cool air in carmel valley and carmel by the sea will be nice with upper 70s in the valley, and mostly sunny skies. if you want to see my pictures that i posted in yosemite for the weekend i posted it to facebook, i posted it yesterday to instagram. i'm @karihallweather. let me know where you're headed this weekend. we'll talk about today coming up in three minutes. >> looking forward to that. 5:41, coming up new details about a contra costa father, contra costa county father and son accused of sexual abuse. and the most powerful person in the senate very angry this morning that he's being accused of helping the russians. and a moose on the loose. new video of a close call between an alaskan state trooper and a moose and her calf. did the pair make it across the highway? that's ahead for you coming up on "today in the bay." 5:41.

right now at 5:44, as we get a live look outside in fremont this morning, we have clear skies overhead, and a clear commute for you on 880, and as you look at our temperatures for today, it's going to be a cool start, upper 50s headed out the door and 68 degrees at 11:00. we'll be at 71 degrees at noon today, and as we get a live look outside in palo alto, we are seeing a smooth flow of traffic
5:45 am
of highly 101, if you're headed northbound and we were just seeing a backup at the bay bridge. we've got a couple of issues out there for the bay bridge as well as the tri-valley. so more on that in less than five minutes. >> thank you so much, kari. it's 5:45. continuing our team coverage of the mass shooting in gilroy, three people killed, a dozen injured. here say live look at valley medical center in san jose, where several are still recovering. the gunman santino william legan was shot and killed by police. it's possible authorities will hold another news conference later today but that is still not certain. we'll of course follow it and have much more coming up on this developing story as well at 6:00. the man authorities say targeted family members in southern california shooting rampage last friday has pleaded not guilty. authorities say that suspect shot and killed his father and brother, along with injuring his mother before moving on to his ex-girlfriend. he then allegedly killed someone he didn't know on a bus.
5:46 am
family friends now say that the suspect had a big drug problem. if convicted, he could face the death penalty. an antioch man who cared for children for 18 years anow is ccused of sexual abuse. the contra costa dmplt a.'s office accused simon chavez and his 31-year-old son also named simon. both pleaded not guilty in the case. prosecutors are not yet saying how many children were abused. california will receive $70 million in a so-called pay for delay drug settlement, deva pharmaceutical also pay nearly the entire amount along with three other companies. the state accused each of delaying drugs to keep prices artificially high. deva is accused of keeping a necropsy drug off the market for six years. one of the president's closest allies is defending his honor this morning. >> this after "washington post" columnist accused mitch mcconnell of doing the russians'
5:47 am
bidding. >> senate majority leader himself, laura, who is angry about that accusation and tth the #moscowmitch. here is the most powerful manfu accused of helping the russians. >> over the last several days i was called unpatriotic, un-american, and essentially treasonous by a couple of left wing pundits on the basis of bold-faced lies. i was accused of aiding and abetting the very man i've singled out as an adversary and opposed for nearly 20 years, vladimir putin. >> the accusations come after mcconnell prevented the senate from even thinking about two bills, one that would require campaigns to alert the fbi if they're offered help from russian countries, for instance, the russians. no vote on that, he said, and then another would have required paper receipts on electronic voting. no vote on that, he said.
5:48 am
mcconnell's blocking of the bills that can't even be debated comes as a bipartisan report from the very same senate says we're facing serious attacks on our voting system. in fact, the blocking and the report came on the same day. another person who has been warning us about the russians is the director of national intelligence, dan coats. he leads 17 intelligence agencies ringing the alarm bell, but coats is stepping down. the president wants to replace coats with this man, john ratcliffe, who called the russian investigation a hoax. it's quite possible the nomination won't get past the senate. president trump's gone back and forth on whether he believes the fbi, the nsa, the cia, the senate intelligence committee that russians violated our elections. he famously told a reporter who asked him that question at a summit in helsinki he asked putin if he interfered and putin told him no. tonight marks the start of another democratic debate. video from the previous debate that stretches over two nights
5:49 am
featured nearly two dozen candidates. there are two more, one tonight, one tomorrow. tonight's debate ten candidates, you notice i got four on the board. we in the media guilty of looking for winners early, but it's just a matter of trying to manage size and time. so the four to watch, buttigieg, sanders and warren. i include o'rourke as well. he's not doing well but i think he's worth watching because he's got to figure out how to differentiate himself from buttigieg. we'll be covering the debates and will have more and highlights tomorrow in case you missed them. i'm on twitter @scottmcgrew. new video shows not one but two moose on the loose, in anchorage officer's dashboard camera caught the close calls oh my goodnesse s as a mother and calf were trying to cross a busy highway. thankfully all the drivers stopped in time and let those two animals cross safely last
5:50 am
week. the police department posted this video with an important reminder saying "we share this beautiful place with all kinds of wildlife. keep an eye out and be safe." oh my goodness. close call for everybody there. >> always scary when you run into wildlife, not literally run into but come across wildlife. that happened to me one time working a morning show many, many years ago and lived in a woody area and going around and the deer, boom. and it scared me, but the deer made it. >> yes, in mara ga tons of deer there. >> in sunol you see them standing on the road early in the morning. reminder slow down, look out for everybody out there. as we start out a live look outside at the golden gate bridge, now covered in fog. at least your drive coming across the golden gate bridge is all clear, and the seven-day forecast is coming up at the bottom of the screen. come over and look at that as you make plans for the rest of the week, getting you out the door in brentwood, we'll see temperatures starting out nice
5:51 am
and cool. low 60s, i think for the most part you can leave the air conditioning off for most of the day. we're reaching into the mid-70s at lunch time, and checking out all of our high temperatures, this will be one of the coolest days of the week. take a look at this. it's going to be refreshing, breezy, mostly sunny, concord reaching 82. 81 in napa. oakland staying in the 60s, and san jose up to 79 degrees. this is actually a little bit cooler than normal. the morgan hill today reaching 84 degrees and such a beautiful sunrise. that's a live look outside in san jose. so if you get that view out your window, getting dressed, grab a jacket for the early hours and the rest of the day you'll be comfortable with some shorts on. so looking at what's happening here, so the cooldown is on now, and we do see that high pressure that gave us that hot weather now moving away. as the storm system approaches the pacific northwest, all throughout the week we'll have a strong ocean breeze, and coastal fog, but that heat does start to build, getting closer to the weekend as the high pressure starts to come back, and then
5:52 am
also checking out the pacific, there's two tropical systems out there, flossie and erick. if you have plans to go to hawaii, flossie may be a problem throughout the week. i'll keep an eye on that. we have some mid 80s in the forecast inland. it will be a slightly warmer weekend but we are staying cool on the coast with some upper 60s and as we get a look at the bay bridge toll plaza, the metering lights were turned on early this morning. there's already a big backup, allow extra time to get through there. looking at the roads on our maps, we do see a fairly good drive across much of the bay area, just starting to slow down in a few spots like once again the bay bridge, as we've seen major delays there. so if you're approaching or seeing a lot of red sensors, we also have a crash on westbound 580, coming through the altamont pass near grant line road that may slow down the commuters coming into the bay area within the next few minutes. i'll keep an eye on that as well. another look at weather and traffic coming up in a few
5:53 am
minutes. >> thanks, kari. happening now, a crash involving two buses in hong kong, leaving 77 people hurt. two people suffered serious injuries. one of the bus drivers became trapped after that crash but was eventually rescued by firefighters. it's not yet clear what caused that crash. next and new this hour, another food recall to warn you about. taco tuesday might be ruined. plus brand new video this morning showing the border wall with mexico as a playground. someone actually did this. look at the teeter totters. the designer's message of unity this morning. you're watching "today in the bay." you know when you're at ross

day of his own. ♪ i want to take my horse to the hoe old town road ♪ ♪ and ride 'til i can't no more ♪ >> "old town road" lil nas and billy ray cyrus hit number one on the billboard hot 100 for the 17th straight week, that passes the 16-week record held by mariah care ye and boyz ii men for "one sweet day." d despacito" tied the record in 2018. >> 5:57. pop star katy perry found guilty of plagiarizing. a jury fines "dark horse" copied a 2009 christian rap song. >> jurors heard both songs played back to back in their entirety. at the end of closing arguments last week, they found the beat and instrumental line featured through nearly half of katy perry's song are substantially
5:58 am
similar to those of the song "joyful noise" but the artist playing. now the jury will decide how much perry and her producers owe for copyright infringement. california architects art installation is turning the u.s./mexico border wall into a playground. look at this. portion of the wall in new mexico is being called the teeter totter wall. you can see it there, the wall was turned into a playground in a sense for a handful of see-saws. the artist hopes it reminds people that children and adults on both sides are connected in meaningful ways and that actions on one side of the border have a direct consequence on the other side. >> 5:58. happening today trial starts in sweden. he's facing assault charges accused of pushing a man to the ground and hitting him with a bottle. rocky says that it was self-defense. president trump demanded the rapper be freed, even offering
5:59 am
to pay his bail, but sweden doesn't have a bail system. >> 5:58. new today, exclusive findings from a congressional report on the abuse of gymnasts. this morning, the "today" show and nbc news are preparing a report on the first findings of an 18-month congressional investigation into the scandal that rocked usa gymnastics. you'll recall former national gymnastics team doctor was accused of molesting more than 150 young women. the congressional investigation's findings reveal failures by the fbi, usa gymnastics, the u.s. olympic committee and michigan state university, where the doctor worked. here's one senator. >> there are also profiles in cowa cowardice and concealment because people looked the other way and they put medals and money above morals. >> at 7:30 a.m. on the "today" show, an exclusive first look at the results of that 18-month investigation. you can also look for the story
