5:09 am
but i do believe as we head through the next couple of hours we'll see mostly cloudy all the way to oakland. we have a pretty good formation of that marine layer. about 1,000 feet. however, we're starting out so mild this morning, forget about the jacket, even the sweater. go right to the short sleeved shirt in concord, 62, 56 in napa, and 53 right now in santa rosa. we are headed toward the 70s by lunch time 75 in concord, 78 degrees in livermore and 68 degrees in gilroy. rounding out the day in the 80s. not too bad. 80 in fremont, 73 in oakland and 82 up in santa rosa. we do have changes on the way toward the weekend. i'll let you know where and i think you might like the change. that's coming up. let's talk to mr. cool, mike inouye. >> hey. that was not cool. 580 we see slowing, north livermore over to airway. that's typical. that's construction.
5:10 am
we saw slowing all day yesterday on the sensors, for the roadways we're moving smoothly. 680 on eastbound 580, construction should be clearing as well as over the next few minutes. we have been tracking this. a tree that fell across highway 84. that's west of the freeway heading to the niles area or out of the niles area to 680. that tree as i understand has been cleared so highway 84 either out of pleasanton or niles is cleared. just in time for the volume to start bumping up through the area. south of there mo major issues, northbound with the sensors showing all over 60s and a little better than the speed limit in many places. expect closures tonight about noon today. travel times looking nice as well. 101 and 280, no delays and the live look at the golden gate bridge, a clear view. you can see the lights. you can almost see the marin
5:11 am
side. >> beautiful. 5:10 now. a local mayoral debate with a high tech twist. that next. plus t down side of buying a used car. we're going to talk about that and your other news before the bell. coming up in a live report. the new ridley scott movie is made up entirely of youtube clips. how the whole venture came about. coming up next. >> taking a live look outside. have you enjoyed the warm days we had? a little cooldown today.
5:12 am
5:13 am
>> look at that. that's really where it all happens. kind of like the land of oz behind the curtain. that's our director gabrielle, our producer is in there.
5:14 am
there you go. watch, they are going to get off the show. they don't like to be on. 5:15. technology will be the theme for the mayoral debate. the contenders will be talking about how we'll use technology to improve the city and increase civic participation. the public will have a chance to join in that debate by voting for their favorite questions to be asked. the nine major candidates including state senator leland gee and the board of supervisors president will attend. it starts at 6:00. it will be held at pier 38. >> california budget battle is over for now. lawmakers able to get things done before the midnight deadline. one of the most interesting parts of the budget, a new sales tax for online purchases. it means it will cost more to buy from amazon or overstock.com. we turn to nicole lapin. good morning to you. i knew those lawmakers would get it done. they were going to start getting
5:15 am
docked pay. interesting how that gets the job done. >> that's right. that definitely puts a fire in your belly. for as long as i can remember growing up in california there has been a budget issue in the state. so we're watching that very closely out of wall street as well, also what's going on in washington. futures are flirting around the flat line this morning after yesterday's massive sell-off. stocks dropped as the dollar fell against the euro amid worries that the greek debt crisis was expanding. workers there went on strike, rioted, then protested cuts as the government tries to avoid a debt default. the u.s. is impacted by a potential greek default because there are reports out that say banks have about $41 billion of exposure there. asian markets fell, europe sls in the red pretty much across the board. we get some of our stateside data out this morning on unemployment that we're watching. it is thursday, comes out every thursday. housing starts, building permits
5:16 am
we're also looking at and a report on regional economic conditions. to recap, the market action, the dow dropped 178, 11,897 is where we closed. below that 12,000 mark. the nasdaq also lost 47 to 2631. making headlines, a number of foreclosures that we're looking at fell last month. realty track which monitors this says filings dropped 2% in may to a 42-month low, mainly due to the continued backlog by banks in processing foreclosure documents. one in every 676 homes received a notice. nevada has the highest rate followed by arizona, then you guys in california, michigan and utah. if you bought a used car you may need to know if your vehicle had ever been recalled because they probably didn't tell you. the gao says that used car dealers may sell cars and trucks that have been recalled but never repaired and that's because automakers don't always
5:17 am
send them the same notices that go to the franchise dealers. there is no government requirement necessarily for dealers to tell buyers about recalls or repairs before they make this sale. so, i'm just saying you know, buyer beware, ask the right questions, you don't want a lemon. >> there should be a data base or something you could go to, punch in your car and see what needs to be fixed. >> groups are coming out in favor of something like that, laura. for right now, you got to go into the situation with your eyes open. >> that oil change button thing was on on my car. thank you. summer is known for multi-million-dollar block buster movies. one film trying to break the mold with the help of the internet. youtube's life in a day premiered last night in london. the premise is simple. it asks you to submit a video of one full day of their lives. the project was conceived by a
5:18 am
production country. more than 80,000 hours of video were submitted and the producers had to trim it down to a mere 90-minute film. >> normally you're a director and what you do you say at this particular time shoes to be green, not blue or a wider lens on that or more smoke. and this none of that control you have. it's the opposite of that. you have to sit back and wait and be patient and rely on good luck. >> and realize how boring some lives are. most of the footage came from public entries. 30% was shot by film crews traveling to developing countries. all of the videos were shot on june 24th last year so it's fascinating to see. have to think back what you were doing on june 24. i don't know if i want to be taped by anything other than this show. i want to check the forecast. >> good morning to you. you saw that clear picture of the golden gate bridge that mike showed you. we were talking about the marine push. and now i mean, minutes later
5:19 am
you can see that marine intrusion over the golden gate bridge. i'm expecting the marine layer to push all the way to oakland, maybe to livermore but i don't think so. right now we're watching onshore flow over the bay area. right to the satellite imagery. as you can see here, onshore flow is in control. a little dip here. it's not going to be able to but as we head throughout the day we'll see some of the clouds come in. and we're going to see the cool marine air push in as a result. as we head through the end of next week, take a look at this very strong ridge that's gaining energy out here in the eastern pacific. this is going to warm us back up so this short-lived cooling tend that we'll see starting today not going to last long. 56 in livermore, 56 in san jose. well on the way to the 70s, 68 for oakland at noon. 70 degrees at noon and 75 degrees at noon in los gatos. about 83 later today, 82 for concord and 82 in santa rosa. we've got a big weekend coming
5:20 am
up. i'll let you know which day is best for outdoor plans, and a giants game, really hot weather today. we'll talk about that. back to you. >> we're kind of talking about it down in arizona and funny against the d'backs. fans were doing a seat crawl. what they did is they moved seat by seat around the deck after every pitch. the group sat up, sat down. look at the two girls on the other side. they ended up going the other direction and avoided that. nobody knew where to go. you're messing up our seat crawl. a lot of other available rows there. they are not participating. don't even make me. >> they could have moved down to better seats at that point. 5:20 now. the controversial head of a bay area transit agency stepping down before getting quite a golden parachute. >> lawmakers pass an on line sales tax. will they collect?
5:21 am
we'll take a look. >> and we're heading down to the north bay where things are moving past highway 37, although as you hea closer t moh richmond/san rafael bridge, i'll show you where things are going to slow even as we speak. ri
5:22 am
5:23 am
>> this is a live look outside at the moon. if you may notice has a glow to it, a red glow, a strawberry glow. actually they call it the rose moon or the strawberry moon of june. it happened as an equiclipse happened. >> muni is looking for a leader after the head announced he would step down at the end of the month. nathanial ford led the agency for the last 5 1/2 years.
5:24 am
the past year has been bumpy. he's at odds with muni's board because they found out he was looking for a new job. there's also union tension. those wrapped up. ford will walk away with $384,000 severance package. let's collect the roads with mike. >> i'm fascinated with the strawberry moon and the severance package. look at this. very clear now. hayward approaching the construction. 92 and 880 clear. we'll get a live look out there. see how things are shaping up. a smooth flow with the taillights, a haze in the air but not an issue. there may be low clouds flew the area. we'll watch if it affects your drive i'll let you know. a smooth drive along the peninsula. 880 we saw for about four
5:25 am
minutes a truck with a flashing red arrow pointing to the left but then that truck moved so things are moving smoothly. a's play at 12:35 so count on slowing past that area. toll plaza, the maze, smooth so far, light volume of traffic. we'll see as things start to build but so far no major slowing off of the carquinez bridge. 680 and interstate 80, very smooth right now. >> thank you. we mentioned earlier that california lawmakers passed a budget. they did so by estimating the state will collect hundreds of millions in online sales tax. scott mcgrew says don't be so sure. >> that's right. states as a rule can't tax items that come from other states, amazon based in washington, so several states, texas, connecticut and now california, have tried to claim that because sites like amazon have affiliates in state, that's enough to trigger the tax. have you noticed when sometimes when you buy something from
5:26 am
amazon it doesn't come from amazon. that's an affiliate. as you mentioned california hopes to collect $200 million in new taxes that way. not just from amazon. amazon happens to be the biggest. but, amazon has bailed out of its affiliate agreement with small stores in the past. if you are a small toy company in california and sell through amazon what state lawmaker did is one of the worst things that happened to you if amazon bails on that agreement and you can't ship through amazon. the other thing is pandora. >> how did they do? >> they didn't exactly rock. the easy listening, the coit of ipos. >> where is dalila? >> slightly above the initial price after heavy trading. up about 9%. it was much more than pandora estimated a couple weeks ago they set up a price much lower
5:27 am
and kept bumping it up. you look at it broadly it turned out pretty well. a couple billion is okay. >> not bad. >> a billion here, a billion there. >> all 18 din a day's work. >> california home prices down in general. there is a bright spot. bob? >> reporter: yeah, that's right. if you live in palo alto or some of the towns here in silicon valley be surprised, you probablyealize eq iuityt equity is up or at least the price is. we'll tell you why coming up. s
5:28 am
5:29 am
>> a controversial arrest at sfo has a young man sitting in the san mateo county jail. it's all because of what he has on his body. coming up in a live report. >> plus, special olympics torch making its way through the south bay this morning. we're going to tell you where.
5:30 am
>> a live look outside, beautiful bay bridge this morning. nice temperatures for this june 16th, this is "today in the bay." >> good morning to you. thanks for joining us. it is 5:30 right now, getting so late in the day. i want to check the forecast. >> i'm ready for a nap right about now. we're looking pretty good. we're going to be cooler by 5 to 10 degrees but you saw that live picture. the fog is back. onshore flow. changing our weather pattern as we head throughout the day. i've got all of the details, what you can expect this weekend. let's get you to work with mike inouye. >> the onshore flow might affect visibility. the conditions for 4 changing. the 62 on the right, that's going to change because the speed indicators turn to yellow a couple seconds ago so that's
5:31 am
indicating speeds in the 50s. your 5:30 kickoff for the slow drive through antioch. the bay bridge toll plaza, no backup yet but we see the haze developing and more cars heading through as well so we'll watch it. it's a thursday, we should get good slowing about 6:00 or 6:15. >> thank you. 5:31 now. a new report suggests fewer homeowners are going through foreclosure. while that might sound like good news, experts suggest it may be due to banks temporarily putting foreclosure proceedings on hold. home prices dropped another 10% but there is kind of an amazing bright spot. bob redell joins us live from palo alto to tell us. very unique. good mornings, bob. >> reporter: good morning. silicon valley home to the giants of technology industry have bucked that trend, they have defied the economic gravity is pulling down home prices in other california towns.
5:32 am
here in places like palo alto, home prices are up significantly year over year. i want to throw numbers on the screen. the median price of a home in palo alto home to facebook of course is now more than $1.6 million. that's a jump of 20% from may of 2010 to may of this year. cupertino, home to apple up 12%. saratoga up almost 5%, mountain view up 3%. what gives? well, you hear me mention these tech companies. we're tualking about the surge n ipos and the people who work at the tech firms, live in these communities are now rich or at least richer and therefore able to afford more home and in turn pushing up the prices in these  communities. bloomberg news reports that it's even an apparent just looking at who is touring the homes, fewer
5:33 am
50-year-olds, more 30 something's, the type working at these ipos. ruin agency telling the "mercury news" that their thought is that there are people buying in palo alto in anticipation of the ipo of facebook anticipated next year so they are trying to get in early knowing a lot of those employees will be flush with cash and that it could again drive up the prices more here in palo alto. this good charm, this good vibe you're finding in these communities that are home to these tech giants is not necessarily flowing south into san jose. santa clara county overall, laura, the prices year after year are unchanged. san mateo county, a little further north where i'm at, home to menlo park, soon the headquarters to faceback, san mateo county is actually overall down 4%, the prices year after year. so you're seeing this pocket of
5:34 am
good vibe that is not necessarily spreading to the surrounding communities, not now. >> very interesting. so it doesn't spread bay area wide. a little pocket of nice. thank you very much. >> it is 5:33 now. the two men accused of taking part in a fatal street race will be in court. the two men are charged with vehicular manslaughter. they are expected to enter pleas. police say the men were racing down a street at almost double the speed limit in march, when they crashed into 23-year-old ashley krueger's car. she was in a coma for seven days before her parents decided to take her off of life support. if convicted both men face up to six years in prison. >> police need help identifying a cyclist who died on the alameda creek regional troyl. officers responded to an accident along the trail on tuesday. that's where they found the cyclist. he was pronounced dead at the hospital. he did not have identification
5:35 am
so they are trying to figure out who he is, described as asian, 55 to 60 years old, between 5'5" and 5'7". 180 pounds. call the east bay regional park district if you know who he is. >> this morning hayward police are looking for two robbers who shot a man near the b.a.r.t. station. the men robbed a couple tuesday night after they left the station, the couple handed over their belongings but then one of the robbers shot the man. he is in stable condition. >> officers say the men also robbed a pair of women a few minutes prior to that attack. they took the purses and one of the men shot his gun in the air. in both robberies the men used something to cover their faces. >> how low is too low? a young man will face a judge today for refusing to pull up his baggy pants before his flight took off from sfo. marla tellez is live at the airport with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. his baggy and his saggy as you
5:36 am
mentioned his low pants, it is getting busy outside this security checkpoint inside sfo. we've spoken to some passengers to get their feedback on this story since it's a talker of a story. so far most of these passengers all of them in fact, siding with the young man. he is 20-year-old deshon marman. he had boarded a u.s. airways flight bound for albuquerque when he was arrested for refusing to pull up his sagging pants. marman grew up in san francisco's bay view neighborhood but he currently plays football for the university of new mexico. his mother tells us a ticket taker and flight attendant asked him to pull up his pants before boarding. he said he would as soon as he had his hands free. he boarded, sat down and then pulled up his pants. the pilot had ordered everyone off and he was taken into
5:37 am
custo custody. passengers say u.s. airways acted inappropriately. >> he should be allowed to dress the way he wants to, fly the way he wants to. he paid his ticket. he has his seat on the flight. he should be like anybody else. >> i see people going with pajamas going in nightwear. why don't they deplain then. >> u.s. airways gave a statement saying the passenger refused to comply with instructions so the captain exercised his right to make a citizen's arrest after the passenger refused to deplane. the airline says it does not have a dress code but expects passengers to dress in an appropriate manner that does not offend passengers. deshon marman's mother lives in san francisco and tells us that she wants the airline to apologize to her son and wants his record cleared. he is currently in the san mateo jail. he will face those charges in a courtroom later this afternoon.
5:38 am
he tells us, though, if he could do it all over again he would pull up his pants immediately. >> interesting. but he says he had the bags in his hands. 5:37. that's one we'll follow. oakland police releasing new surveillance video of a suspected killer. this is video from a gas station in oakland. officers say the man to the right of the camera is the suspected of shooting and killing leo duncen on june fourth. the suspect is african-american, weighing 170 pounds. 30 to 35, he has long dread locks that have red tips. call oakland police if you happen to know who he is. >> will you please leave. how'd you get in here? >> remember this? oakland police have arrested this man, suspected of breaking into a woman's home last tuesday, raping her and robbing
5:39 am
her. the woman had the presence of mind to actually take this video. she got out her cell phone and shot video of the alleged attacker. police say they found 47-year-old dionne mcdaniel yesterday a short distance from where that woman lives. officers say the video was long enough for them to identify mcdaniel as the man in it. amazing there. >> it is 5:39 now. i want to check the forecast right now. check the temperatures for today with christina. >> changes temperatures, changing weather conditions, good morning to you, bay area. high pressure drifted off to the east, enough for us to see the on shore flow. you can see the clouds coming into the bay area. they were not able to do so because high pressure was so strong. now that it's weakened and headed to the east this is what's going to happen. we're going to see a few clouds come through, noticing that fog formation especially in the north bay and along some of the bridges. mike and i will watch that. i believe at one point this morning the golden gate bridge
5:40 am
will be socked in with fog. on shore flow shapes back up, really kicks in tomorrow. that's going to bring our temperatures down to the 70s, low 80s, 5 to 10 degrees cooler than where we ended up. if you're headed to the city today, it's going to be absolutely gorgeous yet again. another warm, clear day in the city of san francisco. 65 at noon. then by 4:00 p.m. mostly clear conditions, 70-degree weather. when you make your way home from the city, even the north bay, a little bit toasty. not bad especially considering we were in the 90s. no 90s on this map. 80 in fremont, 82 for santa rosa and 89 in san jose. i've got your full forecast coming up. let's check your drive with mike. >> we're looking at 580 coming through livermore and toward the 680 interchange. there is slowing. typical spot. we've seen the construction and overnight closure there and also the slowing in the 50s. stick around through much of the
5:41 am
morning commute. 680 northbound at 580 eastbound, that connector is closed, should be picked up in the next 20 minutes as well as the top of the screen northbound around rut ger road. over to hayward, the castro valley, smooth as well as 880 and 92 a. live look will end with this shot of the bay bridge toll plaza. there is haze. watch and see if fog develops. so far no problem for the drive. >> thank you. 5:41. california lawmakers nearly come to blows. a major milestone in an amang recove recory. we'll have a live update on congresswoman gabrielle giffords.
5:42 am
5:43 am
>> good morning. 5:43. congresswoman gabrielle giffords is finally at home after months in the hospital. today in the bay's tracie potts is live in washington where colleagues hope she will return to work one day. she's got a lot of therapy ahead
5:44 am
of her. good morning. >> a long road ahead but what a great part of this story that finally months after she was shot after four surgeries, after we finally saw her get out of the hospital she was able to see her husband blast off from the space shuttle, now she is home. she's actually not back in arizona, she is at her husband's home in texas. he of course works near the johnson space center. she'll go back and forth for intense therapy, months more, but it will be outpatient and the doctors say being home with her family is probably only going to help that process a. spokesperson said her mood and leaving the hospital was fantastic, that she was elated. president obama called it a miracle. >> it really, really is an amazing story. can't wait to see her again. >> they are pulling punches. new lows in sacramento as both sides really fought to reach a new budget deal. >> let's not buy the insurance
5:45 am
