lawmakers are playing beat the clock again. now they're working on two budget versions, one which extends expiring taxes and one which does not. since not enough republicans have gone along with putting those tax extensions on the ballot, democrats will probably pass a budget relying on short-term spending cuts and budget shifts, creating a budget which would let california get through the first few months instead of next year. and with that said, we have
6:25 pm
a feeling they'll want to get paid and, therefore, will pass a budget pretty quickly. we're joined by our political analyst larry gerston now. any gimmicks here, any side carts? >> that's the unfortunate thing, especially for someone like jerry brown. it looks like we're going to see a budget once again full of these gimmicks. deferred maintenance, borrowing from special funds and the like, all these things. but here are a few changes that we need to see that will hone us in on what to expect. there's going to be a delay in repaying the school's $3 billion that the state had promised they had been owing to schools for years. $1 billion from the children's first five program but that's subject to court challenge. and perhaps $1.7 billion from drastically scaled-back redevelopment programs. you add all that up and it's $5.7 billion. the remainder, fees, borrowed funds from other agencies and some program reductions. but in short, dog gone it, it's the same thing we've seen again
6:26 pm
and again. >> flat tire, we're replacing it with the spare, so to speak? >> a spare that's half flat already. yeah, it's not good. the fact of the matter is that there are real serious issues here they're just not addressing. >> so where does governor brown stand with this, which is likely going to happen in the next 24 hours. >> that's very interesting because brown laid down the gauntlet. he's been doing this for months. he said give me one of those two things. give me the tax extensions i've been asking for, income, sales and automobiles, or you make all those cuts. $9.6 billion in cuts. don't give me this gimmicky stuff. what's happened is that in the end brown has had to back off. he's had to back off because he knows he's not getting what he wants. republicans have stayed true to their call here so it's forced the governor really to call his hand. >> yes or no answer. ineffective so far, jerry brown in his second term as governor? >> listen, enough blame to go around. jerry brown is going to get in trouble for not bringing the republicans along.
6:27 pm
the republicans are not looking good for being stubborn against these kinds of changes. and the schools are likely to l lose a lot of money they desperately need. >> thank you, larry. jessica, back to you. still ahead at 6:00, the sun is out and so are new guide lines involving sunscreen. changes to help you better understand what you're really buying and putting on your kids. also ahead, the moment maria shriver found out about arnold schwarzenegger's love child. what his former mistress is saying in her first interview. and top democratic leaders meet for the first time since the anthony weiner scandal broke. what they have decided to do now. and to recan you say or not wec ruling involving prop 8

6:31 pm
judges are entitled to the same notions of fairness and impartiality as all other federal judges. >> reporter: judge walker ruled last september that a ban against gay marriage was unconstitutional. months after making that decision, walker revealed in the media that he was openly gay and had been in a same-sex relationship for the last ten years. in a hearing yesterday, prop 8 supporters argued that walker should have disclosed that relationship and stood to benefit from a ruling in favor of gay marriage. they say he should have recused himself from the case from the start. chief federal judge james ware released an order that declared the fact that judge vaughn walker shared some of the personal circumstances and characteristics and could be affected by the outcome as the way other members of the general public could be affected but is not a basis for recusal or disqualification. whereas lawyers challenging walker's ruling yesterday whether he should not be allowed to preside over certain cases because he's african-american.

so about eight months here across portions of the east bay since we've had weather this widespread and this hot. okay. another thing that's warming us up is not only the warm air aloft but these dry, northwesterly winds, anywhere from 10 to 27 miles per hour just offshore. it's that northwesterly wind even tomorrow that will keep these temperatures hot yet again. so we do have still, yes, right now 90 in livermore, 80 in san jose, 79 in sunnyvale and temperatures in the upper 60s and low to mid-70s. so it's not record setting, it's not at extremely dangerous levels, but you still have to remember to hydrate yourself in heat like this so even tomorrow while we're not going to have widespread triple digits, we'll be in the 90s and definitely sdp you need to think about if you're doing a lot of workout side, take frequent breaks and drink lots of water. we'll see a cooling trend coming on back with some fog but mainly the next 48 hours we'll see high pressure offshore keeping it warm with more 90s coming back for wednesday's forecast. a look at the fog forecast and what you'll find is little to
6:46 pm
nothing. by tonight at 11:00 p.m., a little stratus tries to form offshore but doesn't really get anywhere. around 6:00 a.m. just spotty cloud cover and lots of sunshine for san jose, redwood city, san francisco and also novato looking fantastic. tonight this is how it looks. 58 in los gatos, 60 in santa cruise, 61 in oakland, 59 in redwood city and 63 in san francisco. and tomorrow not triple digits in the south bay but very, very close. near record-setting for some of you. 92 in los gatos, 90 in evergreen, 88 in san jose, 91 in dublin, 93 in livermore and low to mid-80s from san mateo to redwood city. you head into san francisco, we'll see 70s, but it will probably feel like the 80s if you're down in the financial district. 90 in conkoefrd, 89 in orinda and 89 in novato. morning time on the weather channel on cable, if you're doing any traveling, they have a great section there as well as we cool off friday, saturday and subbed. for father's day it looks about
6:47 pm
perfect with 83 and mostly sunny skies. so tomorrow the hottest day of the week, but i think, you know, everybody can handle it just fine. >> yes, i think it's going to be okay. >> it's going to be nice. >> thanks, jeff. let's get to sports now. okay, it's been buzzing around here in the newsroom this week. last night we debuted our new look sports department. we went from about eight people and expanded to about 80 people. we're joining forces with our friends over at comcast sportsnet. >> and tonight we introduce one of the faces we'll be seeing a lot of. henry joins us from the comcast sportsnet newsroom. hey, henry. >> hey. it feels real good, we're family now. we start with some good news for a change on the injury front for the giants. there's a panda sighting in arizona. for the first time since april 29th, pablo sandoval back in the lineup. the panda has been out with a
6:48 pm
broken hand. right now giants are leading in the top of the first 1-0. pablo sandoval 1 for 1 with an rbi. what about the green and gold? you know that saying there's no place like home for new a's manager, bob melvin. tonight marks his first chance to manage in the bay area for a team he grew up watching. our kate longworth is live at the coliseum with more on melvin's homecoming tonight against the royals. kate. >> reporter: well, henry, i can tell you there is a new energy here as bob melvin takes over the reins for the a's, and it's certainly the excitement we felt here back on opening night. and for the bay area native, he said tonight will fall nothing short of special, as he suits up for the green and gold for the very first time here in oakland. >> you know, driving up here was terrific. i've been in this complex many, many times, whether it's baseball, basketball. and starting at a very young age. so being able to put on a white
6:49 pm
uniform here instead of a gray uniform and i must admit when i walked out today, i veered to the right for a second and realized i was going to the left. it was a good feeling. so any time you're able to come home in this type of capacity, it doesn't happen very often, and i understand the significance. >> any win is big right now. you know, no better time than right now to get his first win here at home and start the home stand off right. >> reporter: now, though, the a's are a season high 11 games under .500. melvin said oakland is not in need of rebuilding. he said this team is playing hard. they have just fallen short in a couple of key situations, so we'll certainly see how this home stand plays out. reporting live at the coliseum, i'm kate longworth for nbc bay area. thanks, kate. from the pros to the college ball where cal was back on the field today for their first practice as they prepare to take on number one seed, virginia, in the college world series in

6:51 pm
that could give cal the edge they need is team chemistry. as we saw with the giants last season, it was a vital role in their championship run. so with everything that they have been through so far this season, this team is closer than ever. reporting live from berkeley, i'm jamie sire for nbc bay area. now back to henry. >> great job, jamie. that will wrap it up. giants and a's highlights tonight at 11:00, raj and jessica, this is an incredible story with this cal baseball team. earlier this year they were on life support where they were alive and healthy and they're about to turn off the lights on some other teams. we're down to eight teams in the college world series. while we still have you here henry, i've known you about ten years and now you're doing comcast and nbc. welcome to the family. do you get two paychecks, is that how it works? i'm your agent. >> i wish it works that way. if you're willing to be my agent, we can definitely talk about it. for right now, i'll settle what

i'm getting paid for, as you can say the same thing as me. i know it's great to be your teammate and now you're my teammate. it's all in the family. so give me a big hug. >> we'll wait until we see you in person. thanks, henry. >> thank you. henry from our comcast she notices when my skin's rough.
