better. today definitely the dumbarton bridge is better than the san mateo bridge because it is light on the dumbarton bridge. you see the san mateo bridge is crowded. let's talk about the south bay. we do have slowing now on northbound 101. there was an accident right near 880. and, again, you have pretty decent alternates here. 85 and 280. even 87. when is the last time that you used 87 as an alternate? today it is actually light. you can avoid 101. plenty of options for you. it looks good through downtown. back to the desk. the u.s. military announced two troops killed in a roadside bomb in an attack in syria was american. >> the military says five troops wounded in the attack were being evacuated for medical treatment. the military hasn't said where the incident occurred but it came hours after a roadside box in a tune near turkey.

is communicating with iso officials. it prohibits local agencies from sharing inmate release dates with ice unless they already had such a policy in place. according to a new report from the east bay times, the sheriff's office began publishing release dates for inmates because they say this is public information that can in many cases be helpful to organization that's help inmates reenter into society. now, the sheriff's office we should point out has a contract with ice to how's undocumented immigrants here at the west county detention facility. i have reached out to the sheriff's office and working to get more information about this newly enacted policy. we are still waiting to hear back. gasia. >> alex, thank you. breaking news here. jurors in oregon have returned a verdict in the trial of the

but the san mateo bridge itself, very slow traffic because of a crash westbound on the decline section that. is coming down from the highrise. it was there for a little bit. and traffic is very slow. now, today you do have options. so you see the san mateo bridge is slow. but the dumbarton bridge is not too bad. there is a little bit of slowing now on the east palo alto side because i think some people are hearing about this crash here. but i would say that the dumbarton bridge is your friend. or as you just saw, the bay bridge is looking good. today it will be easier, even with that crash. as you look at the san jose commute, northbound 101 has been slowed slow because of a couple of problems there. good alternates equal 280, 17, so you can go around this morning. 7:16. let's bring steve in. >> green is good. we see a lot of it. >> a lot of it. >> thank you, sir. >> we will get to it, sir. yes, it has been sunny and warm but we're getting that bloom now. some of you are thinking my

fairfield at 43. mill valley is 48. rohnert park, 45. so it is a little cooler. there's a little battle going on here between an on shore breeze, even though it is hardly there, but it is a sign of things to come. and then a little north/northeast for some. that is holding up some of the temps in the hills. very warm air aloft. but a lot of clouds are moving in. as they do, it will drop the temps a little bit. a system will move in over the weekend. that will open the door to a sea breeze. slightly cooler today. gasia, you noticed it. you told me. yes. and temperatures still way above average. over the next couple of days, they will start to come down. and the fog will return on sunday. it will be dry. we will take that into monday as well. >> thank you, steve. the time is 7:18. new information on irs audits. up next, the new data that shows how likely you could get audited after filing your tax return. kevin durant's return to the court is short lived.

to submit false tax returns. the ir says the hackers then use bank routing numbers to make electronic deposits. >> what we're seeing is an erroneous refund showing up in the real bank account of the taxpayer, and then the criminal calling, threatening arrest saying they're from the irs or criminal and we want the refund back. >> the irs says many tax preparers know about the hacking. they are trying to stay ahead of the hackers. this year the deadline to file taxes by the way is april 17th. the odds of getting audited by the irs are the lowest since 2002. just one in 160 tax returns were audited in the fiscal year ending september 30th. that compared 1 in 90 at the peak in 2010 and 2011. with households above a million dollar, 4% faced audits there. they are definitely a target of
audits. the main reason, the reduction in staff at the irs. we were talking about tax software. a lot of people use the software, turbo tax, they flag anything that might cause an audit. >> they tell you before you hit send. >> yes. >> i see. >> take a look at this. i know there is one thing here in the bay area, it will say you pay an awful high amount of mortgage interest compared to the rest of the country. >> yes. >> yes, i know. >> stay off of the irs' radar. to sports here. kevin durant's return to the court for the warriors did not last long. >> no. last name kevin durant and draymond green returned to play the milwaukee bucks but the warriors lost. the game turned in the final seconds of the first half. kevin durant was yelling at the ref about a missed call and was

the temperature in the 60s and 70s, some 80s towards the east and the south. but san francisco, 76. way above average. 62. the record though is 82. i don't think so even though they set a record of 81 yesterday. mild conditions but a lot of high clouds are beginning to move in. that will play into a warm day just not as warm as yesterday. 70s and 80s. here he is. doesn't have much to do, i don't think, unless something new is on your screen. >> just a little bit, steve. >> okay. >> i will tell you that we will go to mostly good traffic pictures here because of it being good friday. the financial markets are closed and also a lot of schools are on spring break. ousd is on spring break today and next week. this is a look at the bay bridge. things are very light driving into san francisco. however, we had a crash on the san mateo bridge that caused traffic to slow on westbound 92. it has now been removed to the solder and things are moving better. i suspect because it's such a
light day, things are going to start getting quickly better on the san mateo bridge. this is already better than it was last tight. there is a short slowdown here. it had been slow all the way across the bridge. that is now gone. dumbarton bridge traffic is a decent alternative for you. the southbound 101, i would avoid 101 at this point. we had an accident approaching 880. 280 and 85 are better bets and so is highway 87 into downtown san jose. there is the airport and levi's stadium in the back. i like that shot. straight to breaking news. jurors in orlando have returned a not guilty verdict in the trial of the widow of the orlando nightclub shooter. >> nora salmon was accused of helping her husband plan the attack in 2016 where 49 people were killed. prosecutors said she went with her husband as he bought ammunition and guns and rhoda long on late-night scouting trips looking for locations for

should point out, does have a contract with ice to how's immigrant inmates here at the west county detention facility in the city of richmond. we have reached out this morning to a representative from the sheriff's office to get more information on why this new practice was put into place, the practice of publishing all inmate release dates. we are waiting to hear back from the spokesperson. >> alex savidge, live in contra costa county. thanks. to the far north bay where investigators are searching for the cause of a deadly crash off of highway 1. the family plunged off of a cliff on to the rocks boo he low. two women and six children are confirmed dead. the three other children are missing and presumed dead. the family's suv was found monday off of highway 1. there were no skid marks or any sign that the driver hit the brakes but also no evidence that the crash was deliberate. just days before the crash, child protective services was investigating allegations of
