holding some of these temps up, up, up. san jose, 67 degrees. and everything is turning. the cloud cover is streaming up from the south and a series of lows will be working in. and could give us rain but more likely on friday. san jose, gusts to 22. that's much stronger than anybody else. that's an indication of what is coming up from the south. that's low there. this one there and the next one will drop into the picture. turning cloudy. and it's mild and much cooler than yesterday. higher humidity. with the cloud cover coming in you might notice it. and patchy fog will play into the picture. we're looking for 70s for most. 70s now. not the 90s, sal, or the 80s. >> that's more like it. >> good morning, everyone. right now we're off to a nice start as we are on this morning
commute. looks good at the bay bridge toll plaza. today is the giants' home opener and that means a lot more traffic in south of market in the city. looking at interstate 880 north and southbound, the traffic is is off to a good start. and northbound 280 in san jose looks good through downtown san jose. it's 4:02, back to the desk. a police task force is hitting the east bay. the goal is to get guns off the streets. but they are looking into the string of shootings. the task force is made of federal, state, and local law enforcement. officers arrested suspects at two different locations. one of the men is wanted on attempted murder charges. however, none of the people arrested are connected to the nine shootings between hercules
and berkeley which primarily involved gangs. >> when the gangs are feuding and they recognize somebody on the street and they happen to drive up on the freeway, some of them in recent past have engaged on the freeway as far as shooting. >> reporter: since january, the task force has made 69 felony arrests and recovered 29 guns. >> the chp is looking for driver of a brown van involved in a hit-and-run in redwood city south of woodside road 1:00 yesterday afternoon. the van clipped a silver scion and it spun out and turned over several times. >> the driver may have known there was a collision. they were driving recklessly and at a high rate of speed. >> the driver was a 58-year-old man from new hampshire and he
died a short time later at stanford medical center. the van may have been a 2000 brown toyota see yen ya. a truck was full of hot asphalt when it crashed into a house on lower crescent avenue. that was 2:30 yesterday afternoon. the driver jumped backwards and suffered a broken arm. >> we were sitting quietly reading good books and i heard this very loud sound which could only be a truck rolling backwards down the hill with a tremendous crash. i said a truck has rolled down the hill and smacked into our garage. >> the garage was knocked off the foundation and fire the li quarters appear to be
undamaged. a recent increase in graffiti is prompts security at city hall. they'll pay for private security to patrol the outside of the building. this was 4th incident in a month. >> this is not my city hall or your city hall. it's our city hall. and to see graffiti here is something we want to combat. >> if the extra security carries over to the next fiscal year, the cost to taxpayers would reach $140,000. the mayor objected but diverting officers could make residents vulnerable to more serious crimes. a judge in brussels is expected to rule to hold the terror suspect.
the isis terror suspect was arrested last month after four months on the run. he's accused in the paris attacks on november 13th. 130 people were killed. are u.s. airports secure? that's the question the tsa is trying to answer. and many members of congress are not happy with what they are hearing. >> reporter: the most visible thing the tsa does, passenger screenings, but there is an increasing awareness of another potential threat coming from the people who work here. washington's dulles airport with great fanfare welcoming the first direct flight from brussels since the terror attacks. and beyond the flags and banners, there are lingering questions. u.s. transportation officials know they are still dealing with a jittery traveling public
at home. >> people can attack us anywhere no matter how many we can try to protect ourselves. >> reporter: the head of the tsa was grilled by members of a senate committee looking specifically at transportation security. the basic questions not just about passenger screening methods and effectiveness, but airport perimeter security. and airport employee vetting. and that is increasingly seen as a weak spot. >> the best practices are obvious. you have to check the airport employees. so is it your testimony that nothing has been done. >> we've done quite a bit. the tsa itself has increased the inspections of employees by five fold. >> and one of the challenges for the tsa, to address the latest threats and it's grown into an enormous bureaucracy

and if you're going to the game or any game. you'll notice some changes at at&t park. that's one of them. a higher and wider safety net. >> we also took measures to try to increase the traps parentcy of it. the net is thinner and we reduced a lot of the vertical posts that supported the old net. and good news for golferrery riders. service has been reinstated. maintenance issues have been resolved and the boat will depart from larkspur at 11:50 this morning. and the giants dropped yesterday.

there are no major problems on interstate 880. it's light and the roadwork is not there either. and we're looking at the bay bridge toll plaza. i want to remind you at the bay bridge we'll have a crowded day. right now light but later it's crowded with the giants home opener. 1:35 start and everyone will be on the way back out of the city -- not everyone but a lot of people -- later. let's move to 280 and the traffic is looking good on 280, 101, and 85. we're off to a very good start in the south bay commute. steve, today at the stadium, can i get away with a light jacket. >> sal, why couldn't it have been yesterday? sunny and warm. no, we have to make it tough. it will be cooler but i think it will be okay. for your seats, it will be fine.
>> thank you, steve. yesterday it was all about sunshine and warm. a lot of cloud cover coming in and a little bit more of a west or southwest breeze. not the easterly breeze. it was roaring off the caldicott. this is a brutal forecast because everything is changing rapidly. there'll be low clouds in the mix. 68 southwest. and 15 to 20 miles per hour. 67 in san jose. 50s for some. we're already seeing a dramatic drop and temperatures are warmer. this can be a little deceiving, but it's a sign of a pattern that's warmer in the morning and cooler in the afternoon. look at the cloud cover moving up. most of this is high base, and i'm sure low clouds will be developing as well. i felt the cooler breeze and you can almost get the sea breeze. mostly cloudy and a mix of high
and low clouds. and eventually, rain from the south. the wind is all over the place but it should turn southerly. and we have a delta breeze at fairfield. this low will play into our weather tomorrow. and the next one drops in to open this one up and take its place. most of this looks to be central california. increasing clouds turning cloudy. on the mild side and more of a west, southwest breeze. the humidity is up there. if you're not by the bay i think you'll notice the higher humidity. and rain developed friday to saturday. a break sunday and monday and the rest of the week looks unsettled. >> just one day of really hot temperatures. >> it wasn't that bad yesterday. >> it was gorgeous. >> as long -- >> if you're in the city, you know -- >> and you're not used to that. and my friend texted me and said the air conditioner just went out.

up in both parties ahead of the next primary in new york. a new poll shows bernie sanders and hillary clinton virtually tied. sanders is leading 49% to 47%. the clinton campaign has released new ads questioning sanders' preparedness to be president. sanders says he doesn't believe clinton is qualified. and ted cruz is campaigning in new york. and trump is reminding new yorkers of cruz's comments where he spoke critically of new york values. the way the delegate math is working out. none of the delegates will be able to clinch before california's primary on june 7th. that means the candidates are scheduling appearances here in our state instead of fundraisers. donald trump plans an patterns in socal.
