6:47 am
we get to see all the people watching us -- >> reporter: gathering around there just all kinds of crowds probably following you throughout the day. >> yeah. we walk out, we show them the product. they really like that when we do it. >> reporter: you have another job that works out well with what you do stayed. >> i'm a tired fire sprinkler installer. i -- i'm a retired fire sprinkler installer. >> we have a metal roof today. >> reporter: so that should be okay. heading out to the gilroy garlic festival or around the bay area today we are going to see cooler weather. we are seeing more low clouds and fog sweeping in onshore today. so it's a little bit cooler if you are headed out the door. we have even seen drizzle at the coastline. then as we head in toward the afternoon, we'll see a lot of sunshine. these temperatures warming up into the 80s in the interior valleys so cooler than yesterday, and then looks like the next couple of days, we are going to see that area of low pressure approaching the coastline and that means the temperatures are going to be staying down. now, so as we head throughout
6:48 am
the afternoon hours today, we'll see a lot of sun in the valleys. the temperatures up in the 80s inland and then 60s at the coastline with the beaches being socked in with some low clouds and fog. throughout the weekend though, looking like a nice weekend. it will be just a little below average as high pressure gives way to the area of low pressure off the coastline and looks like some cooler temperatures. but all told, it is going to be a great weekend. if you want to come out here to the gilroy garlic festival, there are a gazillion things made with all this beautiful lovely garlic. i'd recommend that you come down here with some sunscreen. it will be bright and sunny too and don't forget this. you have to have this if you are going to come down. if you want to have any friends left over, i recommend that, elizabeth. you better bring that one, too. you're going to need that, okay? >> i know. i can smell it through the tv screen. thank you. thank you, lawrence. all right. you saw the flames in lawrence's live shot? unfortunately, we have flames in traffic in terms of a hotspot. it is definitely the bay bridge. huge delays east of the maze may see. and it's all because of that
6:49 am
earlier traffic alert that at one point had three lanes blocked on the incline. everything is now cleared. unfortunately these delays are going to take a while to completely resolve. down the eastshore freeway it's backing up, as well. let's get a check of our maps. we'll show you where our sensors -- it looks like from gilman down towards the macarthur maze your seeing the biggest backups right now. and it looks like westbound 24 looks okay until once again you reach that 580 interchange. so alternates, head farther south until the residual delays clear up. you can get to the san mateo bridge. not too bad right now out of hayward. so that's how hotspot for now but we are expecting an even bigger possible traffic mess this evening. there's a ton of stuff going on. we have critical mass, a giants game at at&t, justin timberlake performing at 7:00 over by candlestick. we have a john mayer concert at shoreline. out in the east bay we have also have an as game at oakland
6:50 am
coliseum and we have the gilroy garlic festival happening all weekend long. you can expect delays on 101. that is traffic. back to you guys. >> guess who got caught up in the big bay bridge traffic mess. >> phil matier and willie brown were supposed to come in this morning but we're still talking about the two new political scandals grabbing headlines. >> the sexual harassment allegations against san diego's mayor and the anthony weiner "sexting" scandal. san francisco representative nancy pelosi has a message for both men. >> the conduct of some of these people that we're talking about here is reprehensible. it's so disrespectful of women and what's really stunning were it is they don't even realize it. they don't have a clue. and it is really -- if they're clueless, get a clue. and if they need therapy, do it in private. >> weiner says despite all the revelations he is not dropping out of the new york mayors race. the big question now, what was
6:51 am
he thinking? >> maybe melissa griffin knows. were you inside his mind? >> sounds like a very frightening place. >> we are so glad you're here this morning believe me in more ways than one. do you think that anthony weiner can still win the mayor's race? >> actually probably not. he really -- he is a democrat in a field of other worthy democrats in a new york mayor's primary. it's a low turnout rate. it's a rate that requires backing of lots of money and institutional backing as well by groups like public employee unions, et cetera, which weiner doesn't have and really never did have. so it's hard to believe that he would have necessarily won even without the scandal but this certainly doesn't help. in addition, again, because of low turnout you have to get people fired up about your candidacy not just people recognizing your name so polls would indicate that people either have heard of weiner or maybe would consider voting for him aren't necessarily helpive of the kind of people who would turn out in a mayoral primary in new york city. >> what would be the motivation of staying in the race then? >> well, you know, it's funny,
6:52 am
john i will oliver, he says people like eliot spitzer and anthony weiner they have an addiction and it's for running for office not necessarily anything else so these are people, this is their life's blood and they insist on staying in these things. >> there's been a lot of criticism for his wife along this process because she has been standing by him and a lot of people cannot believe that she is doing this after he has been "sexting" and caught time after time after time. does that help him at all? >> what is the female perspective on this? >> i speak for all women in the entire universe. [ laughter ] >> look, here's the thing. the people that are still backing him are very clear that they are backing him basically because of her. remember, hillary clinton who certainly is no stranger to having this kind of issue before her still hasn't come out and endorsed anthony weiner. she has been silent about anthony weiner's candidacy even though she is very close to weiner's wife. so i think that's very telling about some of the perceptions of her at least with the
6:53 am
clintons. i want to point out as well today's "new york post" reports that eliot spitzer's wife is going to divorce him so the stand by your man routine might not be continuing in the future and who knows what's going to happen after he loses the race. he probably won't drop out. you don't know what would happen with the marriage after the race. >> wouldn't be surprised if she divorced him. >> speaking of stand by your marin, you know in the mid-'90s when clinton was going through all this, the tammy wynette was outraged that hillary clinton said, you know, i'm not a stand by your man tammy wynette kind of person. tammy wynette took it personally. >> oh, really? >> something we didn't know. [ laughter ] >> thank you, melissa griffin for joining us this morning. britain's prince harry says he already knows his place in royal baby george's life. >> and like all good uncles, harry says he will be the fun one. harry said yesterday that the new prince was crying his eyes out when they first met.
6:54 am
