6:05 am
bay. inland 10, san ramon 8, antioch 12. fairfield area, 7 around vallejo and calm winds now in santa rosa. these winds will rotate from the south to the southwest and increase 10 to 20 during the afternoon hours and look at the temperatures. close to average for this tenth day of the month. oakland just one degree shy off its mark. 60s with a hint of some clearing at the beaches today. 70s and 80s will be common around the peninsula. then we jump up from the low to mid-80s across the santa clara valley 81 in san jose. just about a degree off where it should be for this time of the year. east bay numbers stacking up to the low 90s in discovery bay and byron. mountain house and tracy, as well. 90 at the delta and fairfield. le 7 san ramon. -- 87 san ramon. american canyon 80. 50s, 60s 70s, 80s north of the golden gate bridge. we have a change just in time for your weekend and i have those details at 18 after the hour. today in san mateo a memorial for a young athlete killed while playing "pokemon

6:07 am
that the possible penalty is not enough. sandra osborne reports. the utility company could be fined $3 million. >> reporter: with what this neighborhood has been through, many are saying the penalties need to be higher for pg&e. a federal jury convicting the company on one count of obstruction of justice for interfering with the investigation into that explosion which killed 8 people and destroyed more than 30 homes. the other 5 felony convictions were knowingly failing to inspect and test its gas pipeline for any additional danger. but here's where things are getting controversial today. there's a maximum fine of $500,000 per count meaning that fines can only be $3 million. the number was reduced by federal prosecutors last week from $562 million. >> a fine this small is obviously completely insignificant to pg&e. pg&e is a corporation. there is only one language corporations understand and
6:08 am
that language is money. so this is the equivalent of a slap on the wrist for a murder charge. >> reporter: pg&e issued this statement after the verdict saying, while we are very much focused on the future, we will never forget the lessons of the past. we have made unprecedented progress in the nearly 6 years since the tragic san bruno accident and we are committed to maintaining our focus on safety. today we'll be hearing from city leaders here in san bruno. they are getting together for a news conference to give their reaction to the verdict and also answer any questions that people around here may have. however, we do know that the city attorney is hoping the judge will ask for more than just that fine. live in san bruno, sandra osborne, kpix 5. san jose voters will decide in november whether they will revive the city employee pension reforms that they approved in november. those pensions reforms prompted a lot of police officers and other city employees to retire early or find work elsewhere. yesterday, the city council approved an alternate version to be put on the november

6:19 am
over there to the south in monterey county, that's because our winds today will be more of a southerly and southwesterly flow 10 to 20. right now they are fluctuating all over the place west- southwest at 6 in san francisco. southeast at 7 in mountain view. san jose you have been breezy all morning. now winds up to 17. 12 in the fairfield area. napa clocking a wind speed at 16. right now the coast obviously socked in. we do have a little partial clearing around the san mateo coastline because of that wind fluctuation this morning. for the most part it's a thinner deck of low clouds and fog so we'll see some burnoff with a sliver of sunshine at the immediate seashore. sunny and seasonal bayside and inland temperatures downright summery. futurecast, i like this because you can play along were me. here you go. you take a look at your lunch hour commute and into the city you will see that you have lots of socked in conditions. we start to see a hind of that clearing around the -- hint of that clearing around the san mateo coastline. then that marine layer presses on into the bay during the overnight hours and will kick- start your thursday just the
6:20 am
same as we began today. and yesterday. and the day before that. it's been a benign weather pattern because of that right there. the area of low pressure not kicking out not going anywhere. that is responsible for enhancing our marine layer. however, computer models do suggest by the weekend, some changes right there. high pressure begins to build in from the west and as it slides closer to the coast, warming trends begin. until then, 95 at the state capital. 64 in eureka. unhealthy levels of particulate matter in the atmosphere smoky around the monterey bay county area. 75 high sierra. sun-up already happens 6:21. it's happening right now at 6:20. sunset at 8:08. and your temperatures today 60s, 70s, 80s, up to 90. about 91 degrees towards byron. here's your extended forecast. warmer, hot over the weekend. that's a look at your forecast. we still have sports coming up. i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up remember when clayton kershaw got hurt? everybody thought the dodgers'

6:36 am
apartment building in berkeley. the mothers of the two of those victims are among those scheduled to testify at today's hearings. under immense pressure of the chancellor of uc-davis is stepping down. linda katehi was accused of violating of the university's rules on nepotism. she also allegedly misused student fees and lied about her roles in social media contracts. but in her resignation letter she said investigators confirmed she did not violate any university policies or laws. well, a statement from the uc president tells a different story. quote, the investigation found numerous instances where chancellor katehi was not candid either with me, the press or the public, that she exercised poor judgment and violated multiple university policies." this all stems from that notorious pepper spraying incidents on campus. you may remember from 2011. katehi has been on paid leave since april when she was accused of hiring image consultants to counter bad publicity generated by that

6:38 am
but even if the penalty were $500 million, that's still just the cost of doing business. >> reporter: pg&e issued this statement after the verdict saying, while we are very much focused on the future, we will never forget the lessons of the past. we have made unprecedented progress in the nearly 6 years since the tragic san bruno accident. we are committed to maintaining our focus on safety. and since that verdict happened yesterday, city leaders here in san bruno are getting together at 10:00 this morning at city hall. in the neighborhood there are new homes built. we'll speak with some of the city officials who want to express their thoughts on the verdict. one person the city attorney already saying he hopes the judge puts on more than just that fine on pg&e. live in san bruno, sandra osborne kpix 5. developing now a bizarre twist in a search-and-rescue operation in nevada county. deputies say a volunteer was
