redell is live in mountain view where the world's first long distance solar airplane is just now getting warmed up. bob, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jon and laura. right now, we are waiting to be escorted past security here at nasa ames. we have taken to the runway where a crew is readying solar impulse for its takeoff at 7:00 a.m. if you are going to be going up and down 101 this morning, you might want to take a look at moffett field. you might see this beautiful aircraft taking off. what's remarkable is that once it takes off, it will stay aloft until 11:00 tonight nonstop without burning one drop of fuel. it's going to be up for 16 hours, no landing in between. 16 hours, nonstop. instead, it will get its power from its solar panel that cover the very long wings. you have 12,000 solar cells on a wingspan wider than a 747. the plane weighing about as much as a small car and is powered by four motors that in all produce

less horsepower than a vespa scooter. test flight is in preparation for next month's first cross country trip by a solar-powered plane. it will be done in five legs of 24 hour nonstop legs. powered by the sun during the day, solar charged batteries during the night. the plane itself could fly nonstop between here and new york but at 40 miles an hour, no pilot can stay awake that long. there is no backup pilot since there is only room for one. the cockpit space is so tight that the pilot toilet is actually located in the seat itself. so if you are out and about today, you can see this plane. it will be flying throughout the bay area. a couple of milestones around 3:00. they are going to try to fly over the golden gate bridge. sometime between 6:00 and 8:00 tonight, during the commute home, they will be over the bay bridge. at 11:00, the plan is to land back here at moffett field. 7:00 takeoff from moffett field.
5:16 am

5:17 am
this afternoon. it is taking place as we get air moved down towards sea level. it will start off in the 50s and 60s. as the air drops in elevation, it continues to warm up and the air continues to dry out. by the time you get down into livermore, numbers in the upper 60s and humidity levels down to 17%. not too far away where you don't have the wind. san jose and oakland seeing much higher levels and patchy fog along the coast. dry and breezy in the hills, foggy on the coastline. the winds in the hills firing up that pollen, which is still very high for mold, spores, ash, oak, and mulberry in the high range. air quality moderate for most locations except the east bay. around the bay, 70s and 80s for highs. mostly mid-80s inland. we are watching that fog creeping up the coast. those north winds we are seeing in the hills will slowly back off this afternoon. that will open the door for more
5:18 am
fog and cooling come tomorrow and thursday. close to 80 in san jose. mid-80s towards the tri-valley. 72, san francisco. 80s into the north bay. the sea breeze will eventually win out in this forecast as we go through the week. cooling a little bit more tomorrow. the low clouds thickening up by thursday morning. you may need some windshield wipers and drizzle. thursday, things rebound temperaturewise just in time for the weekend. >> we are looking out here, folks. one of your first thoughts for slowdowns, highway 4 westbound coming off of the antioch bridge. the earlier stall eastbound has long since cleared. your commute starts to clear up. typical pattern over there. by the time you get over here towards vasco, things were starting to clear out. slow towards livermore. it will cut off there first and into the city itself. there is slowing itself. heading down towards the area.

this traffic tuesday. back to you. teenage drivers here in california could soon face some new restrictions. a state assembly transportation committee approving bills requiring a driver's education course for those 18 and 19 years of age. teens would also need 50 hours of supervised, behind-the-while training. a provisional license valid for one year would be issued. it restricts passengers under 21 and limits driving until 11:00 p.m. supporters of the measures hoping to reduce teen driving accidents and deaths. that bill heads to the assembly appropriation committee. asking in theory to send your messages doesn't seem to be any safer. hands-free texting just as dangerous as regular texting. usa "today" reporting the study finds drivers took twice as long to react to a hazard compared to when they were not texting,

5:29 am
the idea this controversial practice of curb sitting could be making a comeback is upsetting in such groups like the ncaa. they think it is a form of humiliation that unfairly targets minorities. they have to target all stops they make, taking notes of the person's race and whether they were told to sit on a curb. we spoke to the local naacp press that sits on a board. he wants escovel to rethink his move. we have expectations of him and the department as a whole to come around while we do not have a chief and put the plan back in its proper place. >> just as this is making waves arks bit of good news for the san jose's police department. the city's independent police auditor released her annual findings. she says complaints were down 7% from the previous year and that
