that will bring the return of the rain and cooler temps this week, but in the meantime, enjoy today. this is just a gorgeous start with our mount vaca cam of the sun starting to rise this morning, a pretty sight. temps running in the 40s and in the 50s, so a cool start to the day. your micro climate forecast and what you can expect, along the coast breezy and cool, in the upper 50s. for the bay, mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid-60s, and warming up inland into the upper 70s. some of our warmest locations topping out at 80 degrees. so enjoy the sunshine while it lasts because we are talking about big changes. we will time out the return of the rain on futurecast coming up. emily. we are tracking several hot spots this morning, one of them is the bay bridge. obviously the metering lights are on. but in the meantime things are backed up. also let's check in here. we have a new crash, this one northbound 680 at 242, basically this is causing quite
a delay. not only right in the northbound direction, but mostly in the southbound direction as a result of an accident that occurred right further south of here that has now been cleared at olympic. that is causing quite a delay this morning. again, so this is the accident northbound 680 at monument, that has been moved on the right shoulder. finally once you get closer to 24 on 680 southbound, you are back up to a normal speed but it is slow going through there. also slow going as you're coming through the altamont pass, 7 miles an hour on 205, speeding up a little bit once you get through the pass and back up to a regular running speed at 52 miles an hour, once you make it towards the 580, 680 interchange. >> thank you. developing news out of contra costa county. richmond police are investigating multiple shootings that happened overnight. let's get right to kpix5's jackie ward who is live in richmond this morning with more details. jackie. >> reporter: minutes ago we just spoke to a police lieutenant here from richmond police headquarters who confirmed there were three shootings that happened within the span of just a couple of
hours last night from 10:00 to midnight on mother's day night and four people got shot so take you to the first scene that happened on esmonde avenue. this is near wendell playground. that's a popular park there. as many as two people may have been shot here. the second location where someone was potentially shot in the head, the lieutenant described it as serious injury in the upper extremity. this was on potrero avenue near 47th. you can see dozens of bullet cases littering the ground. he wouldn't call it a gun battle, though. buildings, cars, they all got in the crossfire and then another shooting reportedly happened near first street. weed ask the police lieutenant if it was gang related, if these were specific targets. this is way too early in the investigation to figure out that out right now. they are trying to piece together whether these shootings are related or just happened to occur within this short amount of time last night. jackie ward, kpix5. a key vote is scheduled for today on the as' plans for a
new waterfront plan for a ballpark. four commissioners will vote on a term sheet with the team. that's a framework toward negotiations over the property the as want to lease at howard terminal. the plan includes a 35,000 seat ballpark plus housing and retail space at the 50-acre site. the as would have four years to complete environment studies and traffic mitigation plans and to work through city land use and permit processes. among the objections to the deal, opponents say that type of development can't coexist with a working port. the team disagrees. >> the idea of putting 4000 expensive housing units right next to a theavy industry, tho two don't go together. there's going to be a conflict. one of them is going to have to leave down the road if they are built. that's not good for the job base of oakland. >> we think there can be an amazing ballpark on the waterfront as well as a thriving port in oakland at the same time. we don't think they are mutually exclusive. >> the as are hoping to play ball in the new park by 2023.

prison for her. meanwhile, fellow actress lori loughlin has already pleaded not guilty to paying $500,000 to get her two daughters into usc. meanwhile a hillsborough couple was the first to plead guilty earlier this month. real estate developer bruce isaacson and his wife devina were charged with fraud, conspiracy and money laundering. the couple paid to help their daughters get into ucla and usc. they could dodge jail time, however, for cooperating with investigators. a san francisco police raid in connection with the death of public defender jeff adachi has alarmed first amendment advocates. adachi collapsed and died inside an apartment in february. the medical examiner's report blamed a combination of drugs, alcohol and heart problems. freelance journalist brian carmageddony said he sold information to several media outlets. on friday pd raided his house trying to find out how he got the documents. he says police and fbi agents
used a sledgehammer to break down his gate and entered his home with the guns drawn. they cuffed him while they searched the house from the attic to the garage. officers confiscated cell phones, computers and a copy of the police report from the safe in his office. the northern california chapter of the society of professional journalists has now condemned the raid saying, quote, while there may be legitimate questions on the circumstances surrounding the reporting of adachi's death, the seizure of any journalist notes or other reporting materials sets a dangerous precedent that this search was carried out weeks after carmageddony declined a request from san francisco police to divulge his sources shows an alarming disregard for the right to gather and report on information. happening today a free street rally for all die hard san jose sharks fans happening outside the s.a.p. center. ahead of game two tonight against the st. louis blues. the gates open at 3:30, puck drops at 6:00. there will be face painters, a
photo booth and a beer booth as well. right now san jose leads that series one game to nothing. when it comes to the san jose sharks here's your chance to wear your heart on your sleeve. >> you can make it sharks for life. the team is offering free tattoos. the sharks are taking over a local tattoo shop for every road game of this playoff series. the first 40 fans in line can score one of these six designs. the shops will also be showing the games while you wait. >> player's inning is up first this wednesday. followed by black lagoon on east santa clara street on friday. if the blues are still in it by game six of the series, it will be state of grace on jackson street. >> and the tattoos will be first come, first serve, one per fan and you need to be 18 or older. so be sure to bring an i.d. there you go. tattoos. why not? >> free tattoos. >> to show your commitment. >> yeah, it does. that's for life. >> the real sharks fans are the ones who keep the tattoos even if they don't make it to the
playoffs. >> well, yeah, of course. you're stuck with it anyway. >> yeah. everyone on the roadways is losing, not everybody but a lot of people are losing this morning, especially if you're coming into san francisco via the bay bridge. first let's start off with mobile 5 who is on the ground getting a firsthand account of your traffic this morning headed southbound on the nimitz. look at that, everything looks good to go. this is one of the few places where we are not seeing an issue this morning. the bay bridge is backed up all the way into the maze. in fact, there is a trouble spot in the maze i'll get to in just a moment but once you make it out of here, there's another trouble spot in san francisco this morning. san mateo bridge starting to back up now, lots and lots of brake lights as well as heavier volume in the westbound direction. if you're in the eastbound direction you are looking good. this is the 880 and 80 accident i was telling you about as you're trying to come into the maze. look at all of the orange and the yellow and even the red as you are trying to make it onto the bay bridge. that stall at treasure island, that is luckily in the
eastbound direction slowing things down a little butt through treasure island if you are -- bit through treasure island if you are leaving the city. someone had a flat tire. they have moved that car off of the roadway but it is still slowing things down as you're coming into san francisco this morning, so, unfortunately, i think this is just going to start to compound over the morning commute as that starts to pick up. a new crash northbound 680 at 242, that is slow and go pretty much all the way through there. southbound 80 residual delays cleared down to 20 miles per hour making your way to walnut creek. if 680 is a part of your commute this morning, you will need extra time there as well especially as things start to ramp up. that accident right there, northbound 680 you can see is on the right shoulder but up to highway 4 where things are slowing down through bay point as you're making your way to 680, the east bay a busy commute this morning. speaking of our san jose sharks, taking you out to the south bay and san jose, a
beautiful start to the day, downtown san jose looking at 54 degrees, 44, one of the chillier spots in santa rosa this morning, looking at 50 in livermore, 55 in concord, 54 in oakland, as well as for san jose and 53 for downtown san francisco. we have a big game today, game two of the western conference finals. the stanley cup playoffs at the s.a.p. center at 6:00 p.m. today when that puck drops looking at mostly sunny skies, 70 degrees. of course cheering on our sharks and hoping for another big win today. here's what you can expect. we are looking at low clouds in spots, especially along the coast and parts of the bay this morning. we will see clearing with plenty of sunshine and mild daytime highs. today will be the best day out of the week and the warmest day out of the week because big changes are coming. a cooldown this week with rain chances beginning midweek through the end of the week and here's the reason why. this ridge of high pressure will push to the east and that will make way for this low pressure system to drop down
from the gulf of alaska and that means our temps will be dropping as well as rain chances back in the forecast. so timing it out for you on futurecast, we will have that clearing, enjoy the sunshine. check out tomorrow. we will see increasing clouds that will be cooler starting tomorrow with the big cooldown by the end of the workweek. on futurecast starting on wednesday, you start to have that chance of rain in the forecast and this is a powerful storm system, especially for may. so really watching that closely for you. our pollen report, medium for today, it increases for tuesday and wednesday, back down a little bit for your thursday. our sunrise at 6:01 and our sunset at 8:10 tonight. daytime highs looking at 62 in san francisco, 66 in oakland, 72 in fremont, 77 in san jose, 77 in fairfield, looking at 76 for santa rosa. so there we go, tomorrow with that cooldown and more clouds in the sky, rain chances beginning wednesday through the workweek into the weekend.
