5:04 am
the middle of last week, conceded. but in the basement of city e a working to count the remaining votes. the director of the department of elections says it is still mathematically possible for leno to come back but leno's campaign has been following the trends and says that is highly unlikely. so it appears as if london breed will eventually be sworn in. but no date or time is set for that. this morning's announcement is just more of a confirmation and speaking to the city that she presumes she will be mayor over. then she has to appoint somebody to her supervisor seat. so lots of action yet to happen here at san francisco city hall. back to you. >> thank you. protests are planned in several bay area cities as part of a national day of action against family border separations. back in may, attorney general jeff sessions announced that illegal immigrants would face criminal charges for trying to cross the border. children can't be held in adult detention centers, so they are being removed from

5:09 am
money to address such a large problem but schaaf says it will go a long way in prevention, intervention and long-term solutions for homelessness. she specifically mentioned using this money to possibly help people catch up on back rent or give medical intervention on the street level. by law, the legislature has to adopt a new budget by june 15th, then governor brown has 12 days after that to sign it. as ecigarettes grow in popularity, so does the controversy. makers of the products are accused of marketing it to teens. one such company, juul in san francisco, insists its products are made for adult smokers. >> it is devastating to us that kids are using this product. this is a product for adult smokers. we don't want any kids using the product. we have a number of efforts under way and we need to do more. >> educators in marin county are among the to warn parents of such products. more of the interview with the juul executive can be seen on

5:17 am
for an alternate. from 205 to 680, 32 minutes. along 680 we are tracking delays northbound. looks like caltrans has some lanes closed due to some overnight roadwork. we are seeing those slowdowns, speeds below the limit there. southbound direction in the green northbound no delays. over at the maze, looking fantastic. we don't see any backup just yet. definitely getting a little crowded but not too bad. and, in fact, the bay bridge toll plaza this has been fluctuating all morning long. now we are seeing just a bit of a backup in some of the cash lanes. >> it's a gray start to the day. this day usually over the bay we can see the start of daylight but that's not the
5:18 am
case this morning because of the clouds. yup, it's obstructing our view across the bay. and the bay bridge. visibility, half moon bay, it's down to three miles. oakland airport down to nine. so these numbers look to be doing just fine. they are not too bad. not noticing visibility impacting drivers. but what you will maybe have to do is use that windshield wipers. west winds are kicking in and pushing in the marine layer even as far as concord so it looks like you're slowly starting to see more cloud coverage out there this morning. moderate winds. but in the east, it's breezy. yellows and reds, a sign of gusty conditions. it's breezy through the delta.
5:19 am
so you can see the clouds right here over the bay and this view and temperature-wise in san francisco we are at 53 degrees. 55 in livermore. oakland 56. of course it feels a little damp out there if you are anywhere near the water. afternoon highs won't be as warm as yesterday because of that onshore breeze. that's what always brings us that cooler ocean air and that's what we'll feel today. inland areas you're still going to be in the 80s. should be in the upper 70s. concord just about 4 degrees above average where yesterday you hit 96. today 86. 82 for san jose. so 10-degree drop for inland locations. it should be comfortable today. upper 70s, low 80s, not bad. 78 in frt. 74oakld. 84 in vallejo. 89 in fairfield. out in the east bay, antioch, brentwood, that's where it will be in the upper 80s, maybe low 90s for some of you. so the farther away you are of course from the water, the warmer it feels. we are feeling slightly cooler today because of this low bringing in those west winds. you can see that here on those
5:20 am
wind streamlines. i want to talk about the tropical storm bud near baja bringing down rain up to 8 inches of rain for parts of mexico and look where it's going towards arizona, new mexico, colorado and utah. we may be impacted by it in the form of nudging the low that's to the north of us up further north. so we are not necessarily going to get rain from this system because of what bud is doing. so as that moisture moves north it's going to keep this north of us. we don't expect rain. you may see some showers to the north and east of us. that means possibly mendocino county on sunday, monday. and then maybe even the sierra. that's where we could get some rain. but what we'll feel is a drop in those temperatures. that's your forecast. good morning, everybody. uncle vern here. i am locked in. i got moving pictures. i got action. and i only have a minute.

5:34 am
clouds are working around, half moon bay 4-mile visibility. sfo fine. low cloud ceiling not impacting visibility but check your flights. across the north bay clear. doesn't look like that marine layer is working its way towards that location. but the overall picture here definitely shows it's getting thicker and thicker through the morning hours and as we get closer to sunrise it will start to reduce visibility a bit more. so of course we'll be on top of that. yes, keep that in mind if you are heading out on the roads. reduced visibility definitely can impact your commute. so beware of that. we are tracking some problems if you are making your way through san jose. 101 just getting slow in that northbound direction, which is on the left side of your screen. we are inenfaravemes going. a h alon87 at almaden expressway. and we don't have too many details just yet but we'll keep a close eye on that. in e antime, let's take it over to the maze where we have
5:35 am
been keeping an eye on the morning commute. the metering lights turn on at 5:21. and that backup has been not reached the maze yet so that's good news. your ride along the eastshore freeway still looking good. your 580 approach no problems. but you will be in for those delays until you get past those metering lights. then it's a smooth ride heading into san francisco. your approach to the lower deck of the bay bridge still in the green. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. a freak accident involving a tow truck killed a san francisco city worker. it happened at 28th near diamond street in the city's diamond heights neighborhood at around 2 p.m. yesterday. police say a black sedan somehow slid off of the back of this tow truck and careened towards three public utilities commission employees. two workers jumped out of the way in time. the third worker, 35-year-old liliana preciado, was struck and killed. she joined the sfpuc in 2012 as an apprentice plumber and rose to the ranks of utility

5:37 am
insubordinate for his actions during the lead-up to the presidential election. president trump fired comey in may of 2017. a new budget plan could be approved today in california's state legislature. >> here's jackie ward to explain how the spending plan could help efforts to reduce homelessness. reporter: it's not a done deal quite yet. mayors from some of the biggest cities across california like mayor libby schaaf are eager to get this money. mayor schaaf says the big 11 mayors, which includes san francisco and san jose, will each get a piece of $150 million that's specifically set aside for cities to address homelessness. this is all part of the nearly $140 billion general fund budget that the state legislature will vote on today. for the city of oakland, which has the biggest homeless population in all of alameda county, there are already plans in the works for this money. >> my immediate desire to take people off of the sidewalk and
5:38 am
into shelter, safety and with services. that's my most immediate need. but i'm always thinking about prevention and permanent solutions. >> reporter: oakland's "tuff shed" program may benefit from the money. it's been able to provide a solution for people to get off the streets but mayor schaaf recognizes that the sheds are a temporary fix. she called them a triage and an emergency intervention. in november, california voters will decide whether to approve a $4 billion-dollar housing bond. mayor schaaf hopes a lot of that funding could be spent on permanent supportive housing. michelle? >> jackie, thank you. interest rates are going up for the second time this year. the federal reserve lifted its benchmark rate by a quarter of a percent to between 1.75% and 2%. the higher rates could be a problem for people and companies with a lot of debt and that's because banks will likely raise interest rates on credit cards, auto loans, small business loans, and home mortgages. many retirees could benefit since returns on things like
5:39 am
bonds and savings accounts will rise. beyond the tough talk of trade between canada and the u.s., what's at stake for consumers? cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger joins us now with a breakdown of a trade deficit that could be looming. jill? >> reporter: here's the thing. a trade deficit occurs when a nation imports more than it exports. so let's look at last year. the u.s. imported $2.9 trillion worth of goods and services. it exported $2.3 trillion or so. it amounted to a total trade deficit of $566 billion. now, think of this. because we consume a lot more goods than we export services, that's why the u.s. will often carry a deficit. one note, i know we have been in a war of words with canada, but last year, we actually had a trade surplus with our neighbors to the north. >> so jill, how does that trade deficit affect the economy? not necessarily a bad thing. >> reporter: right. i mean, this is an interesting
5:40 am
comment that economists have said, you know, commerce secretary wilbur ross has said that trade deficits weaken our economy. but you know what? in general, deficits don't mean the u.s. loses. it does into the mean that a surplus means that we're a winner, either. think of it this way. imports basically don't have an effect on the broadest measure of the economy. gdp. in fact, most economists say trade boosts the overall economy by lowering prices and increasing productivity. now, you want to show off at your family's barbecue this weekend? i have a handy trade deficit q & a. just go to jillonmoney.com. >> thank you. good advice this morning. jill schlesinger from new york city. thank you. 5:40 right now. help is on the way for some california students defrauded by a for-profit college.
