>> maybe end by the weekend. still about five days off. there is a lot of energy coming across the pacific. that throws a wrench into the work. today it's starting off the usual high temps. it looks like decent news for the peterson fire here. the humidity is up 50-60%. there is a component of a little bit of a south,set west. it will warm up today. we're looking for a high around 90 degrees. over all mostly sunny and still 26 gusts to 32. it's tough to warm up inland when you are getting a delta breeze. 60s on many of these temps or a few upper 50s. not much change. low clouds sunny, breezy. a little bit warmer inland. by that i mean only a couple
degrees at best. sal, we had an issue and now like that it's gone. correct? >> yeah things are better now. you know what happens is when we have a crash that is really early in the morning. sometimes we get lucky and we did get lucky because no one was seriously injured and two they got it it of the way rather quickly. let's go out and take a look at the commute now and talk about some of these commutes. we don't want to start with the word hassle. i'm going to take that back. we are looking at the nimitz freeway and traffic is moving along pretty well. as you drive south you can see this is the east shore freeway. now then we can go to the bay bridge toll plaza and see traffic is going to be business sigh as you drive through there are no major problems heading out to a couple of the cash lanes have a little bit of slow traffic but that is about all. and 80 westbound between hercules and richmond. again the earlier crash didn't

30s. witnesses tell officers that two suspects were seen running away and one of them was holding a handgun. >> there is a youth community center, a creek, and a middle school. that area was buttoned down immediately because we received reports from witnesses that the suspects fled into that area. so we created a perimeter for those three specific areas and then awaited our helicopter. we brought the helicopter out to search those areas. >> reporter: police did not locate those suspects but the search by air made it safer for officers to do a canvas on neighborhoods. they are going door to door. they are talking to neighbors to see if they heard or saw anything. police think there may have been a party going on but it is still early on in the investigation. neighbors that we spoke to this
morning say this area is prone to shootings and crime in general -- there seems to be an uptake in violence. but this marx the city's 20 -- but this marks the city's 20th homicide. brian. >> all right. janine de la vega reporting live from san jose, thank you. today marks one year since the 6.0 magnitude quake hit sonoma. despite all the patrol guess the city has made, repairs are still under way. coming up at 5:30 alex savidge will be in napa. he'll have the very latest on the cleanup efforts. three americans and a british man has received france's top honor for taking down an armed man on a train traveling from amsterdam to paris. allie rasmus is in the studio. >> reporter: french president thanked the three americans and called their acts of bravery an

>> reporter: french authorities have identified the gunman as a 25-year-old moroccan national. the man's attorney says he is simply a homeless man who was trying to rob the train. two of the three americans who were honored were off duty military but they said once they took action, they relied on their gut instinct not their military training to respond. >> it's just an incredible story. >> reporter: definite nilly. >> many people might not have done the same. a wine country outing turned into charges of discrimination when a book club was booted off the train for being too loud. the women say race played a role. >> we are ready to get on the wine train. >> reporter: excitement as 11 friends prepare to ride the rail. >> this is the car that we were
