5:45 pm

when you're will -- do you feel when you're there you can go anywhere? and what is the prices like when you buy the crafts? >> the prices are inexpensive and you can pretty much go anywhere you want. when i went out to this place called cardennis. there was no restriction. you hired a guy to took me out there. they don't have much to hide. you can't go on military cases -- bases. but you can fly down to guantanamo, beside it. it's not all that large. but it's remarkable how really kind of backwards it is more so than most places in the caribbean. >> you said crime is low, you felt safe? >> i think crime is the least of their problems. it's not something fear. they're on the mall la con -- mala correctionon.
5:47 pm
they have lots of fun. if you get in trouble, there's a cuban national, you're in serious trouble. that's not the thing you worry about. the thing you worry about is making sure you have a room and know what you're doing. it helps to know spanish. but it's not necessary especially in places like havana where people clearly speak english. plus, the educational level of these people is high. the problem is the economy doesn't support their education. many people like a master in business administration i met, he gets to be a waiter at a tourist hotel because there's no master's jobs. >> a lot of things to think about and check the running water before you go. thank you. it sound like an interesting vacation, tom. do you see any of those old cars? >> they're everywhere. >> i heard stories you probably seen pictures to. that's exciting. for us around here, we've got weather patterns that -- it's
5:48 pm
not that exciting. it's exciting, it's just not that exciting. because this pattern persisted for three and a half to four weeks. it's beautiful, really nice. quality is good. but it's not -- the changes have been very subtle. for instance, today's high is 90. the hot spot, 85 in fatherfield. 82 in -- 85 in fairfield. along the coast, patchy fog, i think you'll see the sunset tonight. some areas by the clip house starting to see a breakthrough. fog will keep playing tag at the coast. water temperatures are starting to warm up. as we move towards the fall season. when it's warmer, it's harder for the going to form. we should see temperatures and fog clearing from the coast. 83 in fairfield. a little cooler today than yesterday as we head into your bay area forecast. the low clouds come back
5:49 pm
tonight, burn off tomorrow morning. and this low pressure is sort of the culprit. if it wasn't there, temperatures this time of year with the sun angle and length of the day in the inland spots would be 100 degrees. it's not happening. the low want to persist. that squelches the fire danger and makes the air quality nicer. here come the forecast highs. looks a lot like yesterday, the day before, which is fine. 83 in napa. so the real story now in the weather world, as you look at your perfect weather forecast, will be the tropical storm hermine and down in the gulf of mexico. and then the two big hurricanes working their way north and south of the hawaiian island change. that's big time weather. for us it's a mild weather pattern. the tropics, look at the amount of activity in the tropics this
5:50 pm
year, right now you take a snapshot, it's off the charts. there are so many trom disturbances that -- tropical disturbances that become storms to hurricane level. the gulf of mexico water is 90 degrees. so the tropical storm there now moving into the panhandle of florida, some guys are saying this thing might pop into a cat one before it makes landfall. >> and they all kind of started. >> they did. >> will any of this effect louisiana? we just had flooding there. you have hundreds of people that lost everything. >> there's a slight effect now as this one moves through. but that's what everyone is thinking. as more tropical depressions move in, the warm water area out of louisiana could be a good spawning ground. so yes, that's one of the big childrens is already standing water and already flooding. >> for the folks in hawaii, they
5:51 pm
won't get hit. and madeline has been downgraded to a tropical storm. >> yes >> they're going to get a lot of drawn? >> they'll get a lot of rain, swell as well and a lot of wind. the hawaiian islands are getting a lot of rain. they'll have problems from madeline as it goes to the south tonight and tomorrow morning. a new high-tech enterprise made its debut today. >> one, two, three. [ applause ] >> they joined san jose leaders in celebrating the official opening of next flex. it mission to create bendable, flexible and wearable electronics for a range of centuries. things that can be used in the military to healthcare. >> it's not, add as i said -- as i said, putting electronics into a box. it's sticking on things like your body. >> the high level of skills that
5:52 pm
will be necessary, folks can learn those skills through our community colleges. they don't have to have a phd. you have to earn a good living and be able to afford to stay, live at my house, apartment, and live in the valley in which they work. >> the department of defense provided $100 million to get this high-tech company from the drawing board to the ribbon cutting. still to come, most bart riders know it can get loud on the trains. what you might not realize is the loudness is actually at a level that can potentially be dangerous to your hearing. so what is being done to quiet things down? we'll look at that after the break.
