yesterday it was way up there. it's coming down today. temperatures will start to warm up inland. they were so far down yesterday, they will get down near average today. some areas will probably take no time at all to warm up. still plenty of low clouds. but the fog bank made a strong push, a little thinner today. a sign of high pressure building in as the weak low we had yesterday has moved all the way up near seattle. another low is dropping down. as that drops down, that sends this high up here, starting to head back up. >> it's blazing hot back east. i mean, just amazingly hot and humid back in the northeast. so for us, we'll get the heat but not the humidity. 50s and 60s. we'll ease into this. 12 miles an hour. yesterday at travis, 35. there's still a westerly breeze. 57, ukiah and also sacramento, fog a lot of it up and down the coast. some of that low cloud deck down towards southern california.

and ben bernanke said there was no timetable for cutting down on the bond purchases. in his remarks, ben bernanke said the labor market is improving gradually with employers creating an average of 200,000 jobs a month. but he said unemployment is still too high. >> despite these gains, the job situation is far from satisfactory. as the unemployment rate remains well above its level, unemployment is still much too high. >> jamie dupree joins us via skype with more on bernanke's comments. he broke some precedent and released his statements earlier. any reason for that. >> reporter: i think they were trying not to spook the markets, tori. in fact, i couldn't believe it when i was driving into work this morning and heard they released it early, they never
do that. there's a big thing we have called a lockup in which reporters, economic reporters, go into a room in the congress and you are given the testimony an hour beforehand but you are not allowed to report on it until the magic hour arrives. today they let it out early not to spook the markets. last month when bernanke spoke about when the fed would stop buying mortgage-backed securities and other bonds to help keep interest lows, when word got out they might be changing, the stock market lost a lot of ground. they have since gained it back and bernanke says there's no set date. it will have to be an array of factors about how the market is doing. >> what does that mean to the investor, if you are not an investor? what's the bottom line?
>> reporter: the economic growth being moderate. the housing market is getting even. in the bay area. it's still not even in the country. even though there's economic job gains over 200,000 jobs each month over the half of year this year, there's still a high unemployment rate. that's why bernanke doesn't see a firm date when they will ease off their help for the u.s. economy. if the economy grows more, more people might come back into the job market and that may keep the jobless rate elevated even though a lot more people are working. >> i have to ask, there's always some skeptics. any political motivation in any of this statement? >> reporter: no. i think bernanke was trying today with the early release of his system and the way he framed it in this hearing to try to get the message out to stock exchanges and the stock market, they are not gonna do
anything immediate. they are not gonna pull the plug on this easing. one funny note as the hearing got underway, bernanke's microphone didn't work. they were scrambling under his feet trying to get things in order. even though his printed orders were in order, everyone had a problem hearing him. >> have to love those technical difficulties. thank you, jamie. you can find a link to jamie dupree's washington insider blog at ktvu.com. pull down the news menu bar and go to tower politics -- go to our politics page. the aclu is in the front lines in another legal battle over privacy. how that battle is tied to license plates and one city in marin county. >> reporter: a police investigation ends with a dog being shot and killed and an officer in the hospital. i will have the latest just ahead.
