6:02 am
>> good morning, marlin ark. now that it's turning to daylight you can see exactly where the boat capsized. the rear of it is still sticking out there this morning. that's where three fishermen were tossed into the ocean overnight. coast guard telling me the water was about 55 degrees. they are safe now but what a night. their commercial fishing boat collapsed near the cliff house. they sent out a mayday call at 12:30 a.m. they were clinging to the side of the boat. they were able to deploy a life raft and take some measures to make sure the boat would not sink by sealing up part of it so it wouldn't take honor what. by 1:a.m. the coast guard says they had them all out of the water. now there's concern about 00 gallons of diesel fuel the boat was carrying and getting the boat out of the water. >> we can only eliminate the substantial threat of discharge by safest means possible. if that includes towing the vessel inshore and then doing
6:03 am
it, that's what we will do. if we can assess it out here, we'll remove the pollution out here. >> the coast guard says this was a crab boat that had 27 though crabs on it. 80 of them were full and the weight shifted. they think that's what may have caused it to tip oemplt two of the men still resting this morning. one tape to the hospital for observation and treated for possible hypothermia. when it gets a little lighter out the coast guard going to be doing a flyover looking for a possible sheen on the water. coming up in about 30 minutes, you'll hear from one of the men who was on board when the boat went down. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> scary night. thank you, christie. coast guard pulled another man near the bay from the san mateo bridge. take a look. this happened yesterday morning around 7:15. a 21-year-old man ended up in the water. the coast guard said he jumped
6:04 am
from the bridge. someone driving on the san mateo bridge saw him and called 911. it took crews about 45 minutes to get to him but they were able to get him out of the water. a market owner in fairfield is dead this morning after he was robbed last night. fairfield police say they received a call from the market owner asking for help. emergency crews responded and they found a man on the ground. the victim told officers three suspects had taking back our neighborhoods him inside his store. he was taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries. witnesses reported seeing three black men in their late teens enter the store at the time of the robbery. this morning police are looking into a spree of robberies in san jose. there were four robberies all over the south bay and less than 16 hours. they happened in all parts of san jose from valley fair mall to little saigon. officers say the robberies range from gunshot to grab and go. one man robbed at knifepoint on blossom hill road feet away from
6:05 am
the reese family's doorstep. >> even on a busy street, kind of scary something like that would happen. a side street or alley, you might expect that but not on blossom hill road. >> san jose have not made arrests in any of these robberies. they don't think the robberies are connected. 6:05. we're a step closer to getting a state budget. governor jerry brown is expected to sign the budget plan today, just a few days before it's supposed to go into effect. both houses approved the plan last night with little debate. the budget was worked out between governor brown and democratic lawmakers who have enough votes to pass the budget without republican support. the new budget eliminates a $26 billion deficit through deep cuts but no tax increases. however, students at uc and cal state schools will likely see more tuition increases because of the plan. the budget slices mean a total loss of $650 million for each school system. more delays on a vote to
6:06 am
upgrade san francisco's communications network. for a third time the board of sups have voted to delay a plan on at&t's plan to install hundreds of network boxes. it wants a hearing on how the devices fit within city construction guidelines. each 4 foot tall box includes technology which would improve internet, cable, land line within the city. opponents of the plan say boxes would obstruct pedestrian traffic, inconvenience property owners and visually they are an eyesore. a new vote is scheduled for next month. 6:06. if you want to set off legal fireworks in the bay area this fourth of july, you only have a few options where you can do so. just a dozen cities in the bay area in santa cruz county will let you buy and use fireworks that don't explode or leave the ground. can you buy and use fireworks in these following cities. san bruno, parveg, a, union city, newark, dublin, gilroy,
6:07 am
seaside, watsonville pet lumm, sebbas poll, rhonert park and cloverdale. any not bought at a licensed vendor are illegal. we'll check the forecast. we had rain, get ready for a heat wave. >> yes, indeed. i love the fourth of july when they try to emphasize safety and they blow up the watermelon. you know they will do that this year like they do every year. in concord, a chilly day, 53 santa rosa, 51 san mateo. temperatures today struggling to climb an additional 10 degrees in most cities. going to end up in the upper 60s, low 70s as the system continues to pull out, it's kicking up windy conditions as well. so there is a bit of a windchill factor. you don't want to get caught off-guard by deceptive sunshine. later on still coolish outside. low pressure taking a ride on the jet stream. can you see that front bringing significant rainfall to the sierra nevada. even snowfall to the highest
6:08 am
elevations. it's going to continue to move out of here. as it does so, high pressure moving in fast. temperatures today on the cool side, in fact, below our seasonal averages, will climb into the 80s and 90s as of tomorrow. so cool today, much warmer tomorrow. i think for the first part of the day, next couple of hours before noon we'll see residual shower activity. highs in the 60s and 70s. as we head through tomorrow and especially friday, saturday, sunday, our temperatures climb. by friday we're also expecting triple digits in the east bay, 90s in the south bay. san francisco a hot one for you frei, saturday, and sunday. 80 degree weather we could hit 90 in the city of san francisco on sunday. very unusual to have these big-time changes coming into play so fast. 72 degrees today, up to 98 degrees on sunday. what a difference a few days will make around here and always what a difference a few minutes make on the road. let's check that with mike right now.
6:09 am

6:14 am
alameda cannot fair in full swing and families are enjoying rides, music and food. bob redell is live with an attempt to make a very big burger. >> good morning, marla. i'm on board the world's largest barbecue. when you've got a setup this large, why not try to attempt to cook the world's largest hamburger. the two gentlemen leading that effort are brett and nick. you're trying this saturday. i see you have this rig here. how are you going to pull this off? do you think it will work? >> you obviously start with the world's largest barbecue. we've developed this here and on saturday we're going to attempt to pack 600 pounds of fresh ground meat and make the world's largest hamburger. >> that's at 7:00 a.m. it's on top of the grill. you've got this so you can flip it. how do you keep it from falling out, all that meat.
6:15 am
>> first of all, we've got a few secret ingredients we'll reveal on saturday that will help be the glue for the meat in there. it helps when you have the 22 foot long hydraulically controlled grill which will raise and lower it on the charcoal pit. >> you've been in touch with guinness, what are their requirements. >> guinness is restrictive. we have to make sure we have qualified witnesses that witness the process start to finish. >> forklift it off. >> we have to make the hamburger off the scale, put the whole hamburger together with the bun. >> do you have a bun? >> we have a bun. >> special bakery. >> athens bakery out of oakland, they have been there 100 years. they are the greatest bakery. a great guy, david. >> you're thinking of that post cook weight of the meat is 480 pounds. >> we think about 480 pounds. >> the bun will handle the weight. >> they have made it with a

6:20 am
skies out there along the peninsula in san francisco going to clear to a beautiful, sunny day. as i said before, deceptive sunshine, only the mid-60s in the city today. low pressure taking a ride on the jet stream. it's going to take this cold front with it. we're not expecting any more showers, even though you do see showers coming down over the sierra nevada, even snowfall. yes, mammoth still open all the way through the fourth of july, which is right around the corner now. as you can see here a little bit of lightning, unstable air mass. we had numerous reports of lightning throughout the east bay, flooding up in the north bay. this morning we're drying out. watch out, we have slick spots. up to 98 on sunday, marla. >> thanks christina. 6:20, a fuel spill puts a sheen on top of the lake. we'll show you coming up. >> all that excitement on wall street turns out to be a benefit for sacramento. talk about it in tech today. >> southbound 880 under cloudy

6:27 am
it's not because people are going back to work necessarily, or getting raises because nobody is get a raise, it's because so many people are making money on the stock market and that's where a lot of that money will come from. >> and the state capital benefits. >> yes, hopefully. >> thanks, scott. 6:26. as scott mentioned the budget, we'll continue coverage with a live report from sacramento. the coast guard pulls a man from the sea overnight. scue coming up.

6:32 am
in fact, we might see more cuts to spending in california if these increased tax revenues that lawmakers are depending on don't materialize. they were here until late last night, after 9:00 p.m., still deliberating, still trying to keep redevelopment agencies from being eliminated. the budget passed by democrats and lacked republican support only needed a majority vote to pass. does away with a $10 billion deficit but also hinges on $4 billion in revenue from what lawmakers say will be strong tax receipts in the coming months. we just heard about that a minute ago. people doing better in the stock market. if their gamble doesn't pay off, there will be more automatic cuts particularly to education. perhaps even a shorter school year, shorter by seven days for school children across the state. back out here already governor brown talking about ways to raise revenues in the future. you remember he was not successful in persuading

"today in the bay's" tracie potts is live in washington. tracie at issue is whether the drug works for breast cancer patients. >> absolutely. the answer seems to be it works very well for some and there are big concerns for a lot of others. there are a number of women the industry calls super responders. they respond well when they have breast cancer. the studies found for a lot of women it doesn't prolong life and can cause internal bleeding. it's been linked to
6:44 am
