the reason the people are lining up is because there is so much interest. they are lining up because of rev pinckney and because president obama is delivering are eulogy. there's room inside, but the pinckney family is going to get priority seating then followed by member os f the emanuel ame church and then others. people have been lining up all morning long. we talked with people who said they planned on getting here around 6:30. obviously people were here much earlier than that to try to secure their seat inside the funeral. >> are they going to get up a large screen for people who can't get inside? >> reporter: yeah, the city has set up a few locations for overflow seating for those who
can't get inside the arena and the city of charleston has broadcast that. there have been people coming from all over the country hoping to be a part of this service and at least pay their respects to reverend pinckney, the largest of all of the funerals we are expecting. >> have you talked with anybody, as you said people coming from all over the country, people affected by this. have you talked with anyone asking why they made the trip to be there this morning for that? >> reporter: yeah, of course, we poke to one pastor yesterday who came from texas yesterday. he came from texas and he feels like these are his family members who were lost in the attack and we talk wed a woman who was here on vacation at hilton head, south carolina. she felt like she wanted to
come. she said she was so close that she felt she needed to come. she came to the viewing last night, but had to wallet hours in line to -- wait hour ins line to get inside. many people made the trip to be here. >> amazing, affecting people around the world. we will check back in with you in a little bit for the memorial today. all right, here in the bay area, one man has created a bit of an uproar when he flew a confederate flag. he was he is not a -- he said he is not a racist, but wanted to make a point. he has replaced the confederate flag with an american flag. we spoke with him and he asked that we not show his face. >> free democrat of speech is a
right in our country, but to do it when this tragedy has happened is to exploit the moment and to try to get attention. >> now, the man says he has no plans to display the confederate flag again, he said he has already made his point. well, apple has pulled games that display confederate flags. they are saying they pulled the flag that is used in "mean spirited ways." they are allowing it for those who display it in educational con content. they are following stores like wal-mart that displays them. >> i think people are surprised about how many places show it. 4:48. let's check in with sal.
sal, i have to say at 3:00 this morning there was traffic for me to come in. >> it's interesting. i got on the freeway myself and there was traffic out there. back years ago, allie alex savage, there was no traffic. [ laughter ] let's go outside and take a welcome at the commute. the traffic is actually doing okay. we are going to start at the bay bridge toll plaza. in a lot more seriousness, i think the commute is more spread out. that's because people don't want to be caught in the middle of the commute so they get on the roads a little bit earlier and those people get on the road a little bit earlier and
the curve starts to thin out. i sound like i'm in my statistic class. you can see the traffic is moving along well. we are looking at the livermore to dublin commute. 580 is doing well and on fridays sometimes we get lighter than normal traffic. we are hoping that happens on 580. let's go to steve. i did walk through snow to go to school. >> we know you did. >> it seemed like 10 miles at the time, but i was probably one mile. [ laughter ] the fog is flying up the coast. it does not look like it's turned past the ray yet, but it's close. it was down in moterey yesterday. on sam san san mateo.
cooler by the coast, they didn't cool up that much. inland sunny to warm and hot, but not the 100s. in the 80s and 90s. the clouds are streaming into the area. big cool down 70s and 80s. it's a very mild pattern, but this is a much stronger delta breeze than we had yesterday. water levels are dropping off. they moved up pretty fast in one day. 40s in the mountains. 70s and 80s for the valley, very hot. the higher clouds right there beginning to make sure move. so, it's going to be a changeable day. high cloud w's all of that humidity in the mix. here's saturday. we might get a little bit of a break on sunday, but it looks like they are posed to move in
next week. fog along the coast. it will make a little bit of a push later today along with the breeze as it picks up. cooler for most. in the extended forecast, it calls for a cool down, especially as we go into the weekend. >> the weekend was a little bit cooler. it was hot yesterday. >> it was toasty at antioch. >> we had to crank the air conditioner out there. >> i saw your twitter picture. >> that was uses sweat it out. all right, 4:52 is the time right now. making history at the ballpark. >> he is just another one of the guys. that's how we see him. >> we are going to introduce you to the first openly gay player in baseball.
