how yosemite's drug stats compare to other national parks like yellow stone and the grand canyon. we brake down arrests and citations about i t citations by the number of visitors. elise kirschner, nbc bay area news. more and more short-term daycare centers popping up at business centers, shopping malls, grocery stores and other businesses. unlike full child care providers, they are not licensed or regulated by the state. leland yee of san francisco wants to change that. he plans to introduce a bill that would put basic standards in place. his bill would require workers at drop-off daycare centers to have criminal background checks and be at least 18 years old and it requires at least one adult for every ten children under six and one adult for every 15 children seven and up. today is officially earth day. over the weekend, a lot of green events popping up all over the bay area, including a cleanup effort in san francisco.

5:22 am
the cold can affect their durability. let's check the forecast right now. you are going to need something cool for today. >> it may actually be t-shirt weather by 9:00 this morning. you can see how quickly things will be warming up hour by hour. 1:00, mid-80s inland. i do think 90s are in reach for the north bay valley, east bay and san jose south. today, more like august instead of april. that's the story for today's temperatures. as you head toward the middle part of the week, sea breeze starts to kick in. two days that look and feel more like summer outside. mike? >> remind the kids, school still in session. 101 moves smoothly through palo alto. northbound head lights. 101 shopping center, a smooth drive, no problems there or at

5:32 am
whether the woman was a victim of the crime. >> the woman accused of stealing an suv with an 11-month-old girl from san jose inside is expected to make her first court appearance this morning. the stolen vehicle led to a bay area wide amber alert. she went back inside the house to grab something. when she got back, the child and the vehicle were gone. five hours later, they found that suv with 11-month-old gabrielle safe inside in a driveway across town. three weeks later, officers arrested 30-year-old carla hernandez for that crime. she is facing kidnapping, child endangerment and auto theft charges. we are looking at the end of april but rob says it is going to feel a little more like august. temperatures as warm as the low 90s in a few spots. we are starting to see some of the signs that we will be looking at a warmer day than
5:33 am
yesterday. san jose in oakland, comparing that to 24 hours ago, we are about 5-7 degrees warmer. we are off to a running start with the temperatures this morning. same amount of warming that we saw yesterday. the numbers will likely get into the low 90s. notice the wind direction, slightly offshore. high pressure reaches its maximum intensity today. look at how it has cleared out the entire northeastern pacific from british columbia down into san diego and northern baja, california. no signs of low clouds for now. once the low clouds return to the coast, that's when you know we are going to start to see the cooling trend take place. in the meantime, numbers close to 80 around san francisco and oakland. low 90s inland out toward the tri-valley and areas south of san jose. when you are talking about low 80s and upper 90s, tomorrow, not quite as warm. as the sea breeze comes back in full force, we will see those numbers cooling quickly toward
5:34 am
the middle part of the week. >> we are looking for that sea breeze right here. the ocean, golden gate bridge moving very smoothly. we will have construction blocking a couple of lanes on the north side. ov overnight, we did not have that. the cones were moved earlier. here you go into the golden gate bridge in the city. just north of north san pedro, southbound with these head lights. smooth drive. a crash on todd road farther north of santa rosa. might be an issue off of the shoulder. the road, itself, is open, watch for that coming off 101 from the west. we will get a look at the maps. we see the north bay coming over the richmond bridge. no problem either direction. the commute direction, a smooth drive to a little slowing around the s-curve.

5:36 am
yesterday, more than $600 million in automatic spending cuts went into effect or the faa which means travelers here at sfo could see delays up to 90 minutes. there was no real impact yesterday, because that was sunday. today is the real test, because air traffic is much heavier, a weekday. how are the automatic budget cuts expected to cause delay? they are expecting them to furlough one day every two weeks through september. as a result, airports will have to delay takeoffs so short staff control towers don't get overwhelmed trying to land the airplanes. the airport is feeling the brunt of these cuts shall those in new york, d.c. and chicago's o'hare, which might have to close one of its control towers. what happens there trickles down to here on the west coast. the airlines and pilots have gone to court to ask to block these cuts. they are arguing it is going to tremendously snarl air traffic. the earliest they could get a hearing would be sometime later

5:40 am
request of russian intelligence. they cleared him after he traveled to russia and came back with no travel restrictions. in light of what's happened, in light of remaining and lingering questions about whether he may have been radicalized there or whether he had any terrorist ties, now the fbi is facing heat for that. listen. >> i want to know how the fbi or the system dropped the ball when he was identified as the potential terrorist. it was a mistake. i don't know if our laws are insufficient or the fbi failed but we are at war with radical islamists and we need to up our game. >> at some point, they have nothing. you can't ask them to do something with nothing. >> in the meantime, the 19-year-old younger brother who survived is in a hospital in boston. he is being questioned by the high value detainee interrogation group. those questions and his answers for the first 48 hours without a miranda warning not admission i
