the wave height's not very high, but a rip current can be deadly and pull you out in the water very quickly. you want to remember, if you do get pulled out by a rip current you're supposed to swim parallel to the shore and eventually you'll outrun the current which is the good news. we'll take you outside. and temperatures are all over the place. 70s in san francisco right now. it's going to be a mild game out at at&t park. 80s for first pitch for the coliseum in the east bay. the pollen's probably killing you outside, folks, right now. and in the south bay it's a dry heat with 89 degrees. as we get a look at tomorrow's forecast, yes, it is going to get hotter. check it out. 100 expected for your average for the east bay. also an average of 100 degrees right here in the south pay. we'll get closed to it in the peninsula. and you can see san francisco another day with low 90s. when it comes to the hot weather and you, we're expect egg the hottest weather on wednesday. here's a few things you want to

>> he is calling it the good news budget. he released a revised budget proposal. it's a record high spending plan because the state stumbled on more money. $2 billion more than expected. the governor wants to use the extra money to extend medi-ca n medi-cal and spend more money on drought relief. the governor says the state already funds k through 12, 15 years in all. >> somebody was saying the real challenge with these 15 years is we don't have a 16th year. if we got that 16th year everything would be hunky-dory, if that's true, some reallocation has to be made. >> some republicans are happen eat governor was more conservative with his budge e but other republicans say he could have been even more tight
with the money. state lawmakers have until june 15th to make any changes and pass the budget for the next fiscal year. the dark side of silicon valley. tonight our investigative unit uncovers hundreds of the toxic spill sites still lurking in our soil, and we map it all out so you can see if there's a toxic site near you. coming up. >> i don't agree with their decision for me. i wholly feel that i've done nothing wrong. she doesn't want to be judged. the wife of the embattled clippers owner explains why she feels she's being made the victim in the wake of her husband's racist comments. and the amgen tour just rolled through. i'll have a live report.

and what makes waiting in the sweltering heat welt worth it. >> it's nice to see them. >> it is extremely exciting. you watch these guys that have been training for like basically their whole life. and you get to watch them come up a mountain that i've been climbing since i was little. they're on my home turf. >> reporter: pro cyclists are monitored very carefully, especially this this heat. last year during the palm springs ride temperatures reached up to 110 degrees and some of the riders had to fall out because of heat exhaustion. it can be dangerous when it's that hot. let's take you to san francisco where the stubborn heat is still hanging on. you're looking at a live picture of ocean beach. let's turn things over to jeff ranieri. that beach looks cool, but probably not a good idea to go in the water right now. >> we have the rip currents making it very dangerous.
we have the dry winds coming out of the northwest at 17 miles per hour. humidity at 19%. some of the warmest weather continues to be across the south bay. you're currently at 89, but still in a zone of heat from saratoga to campbell with a pair of 96s. then over towards the tri valley, we're tracking mid-90s across dublin, livermore and danville. even though it's not 100, it is still dangerous. when you think about it, we've been this warm for several hours now. remember to drink plenty of water even after the sunsets. 91 in atherton, and in san francisco, so very rare upper 70s at 6:31. i'll have the full forecast coming up. we continue our weather coverage on our nbc weather page on facebook. you can post your own weather
pictures. not just innovation and ipos. there's another side to the silicon valley. you could be living on or near a toxic waste site. our investigative reporter has been digging in to the sites. a map you can use to find these toxic areas. >> we found hundreds of sites that contain toxic chemicals. much of it dumped in the early days of silicon valley. you've probably heard about some of the higher profile toxic dump sites. but for the first time we've added up all the little sites as well and put them all on an interactive map for you to uncover what could be lurking in the ground in your neighborhood. from the 1960s to today it's hard to imagine a down side to silicon valley. high tech contributes 1.5 million jobs and $500 billion a year to america's gdp. >> it's a legacy. >> reporter: these are just some of the pictures and press
clippings in mandy hall's collection after those early days after successfully representing workers in lawsuits she's come to realize that silicon valley's boom times also carries a less positive side. >> the dark side of the legacy is this stuff left behind. >> reporter: stuff as in hundreds of thousands of pounds of toxic chemicals. chemicals that her clients worked with every day in microchip clean rooms. chemicals her clients told her were often just dumped doubt drain or worse. >> early, early days, i think it wasn't unheard of for stuff to literally be poured out the back door. >> reporter: stephen hill is with california's water quality control board. >> these are unauthorized discharges from many years ago, people doing things at the time that were considered normal in industry practice but that we now know cause problems. >> reporter: while there are 23 official federal super fund
sites in silicon valley with these chemicals in them, state and federal officials tell us hundreds of other unofacial sites are also scattered all over silicon valley. >> materials can end up in the water and be a problem with water quality. some of them have the capacity to come back up. >> reporter: now for the first time, nbc bay area has pieced together the locations, 518 different chemical spill sites in santa clara county alone. >> it's part of our history that shouldn't be swept under the rug. >> reporter: the idea of a map showing all these toxic spill sites at once was the brainchild of entrepreneur bob winslaw, a stanford-trained civil engineer who formed his open company to educate companies, governments and citizens about contaminated sites. >> it is a bit of the dark side of silicon valley. i do believe that. but for me it's also an
opportunity to remind sill condition valley that even tough issues, they can make good. >> there's nobody who has responsibility for all of these sites. >> reporter: lenny siegel serves as executive director for center for public environmental oversight. >> what's important is the combination of the map, the fact that there are tens of thousands of people living and working above plumes or going to school above plumes. >> reporter: they shared their computer files with us using that along with government sources we mapped these toxic sites ourselves. take a look at what we found. when we put it all together, the purple plots all over silicon valley show the enormity of the problem. >> we can actually see how much of the valley has been impacted by these chemicals. >> reporter: on the map we also found more than a dozen day cares, elderly care homes and schools right on top of or very close to the sites where chemicals still lurk in the soil.
>> people should be asking questions. there are some people who say i don't want to know about it because it will lower my property values. and i'm sympathetic, but i don't want to be the person buying that property not knowing. >> i think people don't realize the sheer number of open cases out there. >> reporter: vanessa, with the santa clara water district says all these chemical plumes in the ground are separate from drinking water supplies. >> weigh want to see them clean the up and make sure the contamination is contained and stable so that it doesn't impact other properties or deeper drinking water aquifers. but you shouldn't be concerned about your drinking water quality. >> reporter: should residents be concerned? >> no. i think the regulatory agencies are doing their job. >> reporter: but it's a dark legacy they will be living with for a long time. >> the consequences of putting other people in harm's way, you
don't get a do over. >> reporter: here's how this map works. go to our website, nbcbayarea.com. click on the investigative page, find our story and this map. then you can maneuver, drag and click all around silicon valley. the purple shapes identify the sites. there's also a label that shows elderly care, day cares and old tech companies. you can zoom in or zoom out. find your neighborhood and find what spill sites are near you. raj, jessica? >> that's nbcbayarea.com for that map. if you have a tip for stephen stock or anyone else in our investigative unit give us a call or send us an e-mail directly to the uni unit @nbcbayarea.com. will, are squirrels ruining a south bay park? officials say yes and are taking some action. but the park goers want the squirrels left alone.
officials say there are too many squirrels. they say the squirrels are damaging the park and making it unsafe for visitors. the city says it's humanely getting rid of the squirrels without creating a hazard to people or other animals. but some visitors say they just don't agree. >> the only areas that they went into to kill squirrels were in the hills where people don't go. they did not, there's no danger anywhere else. in the park. and who goes to a park and thinks they won't see wildlife? thinks they won't see squirrels? >> now the squirrel supporters say the city should at least poll people at the park to see if the little creatures are actually a nuisance. a contagious disease on the move. and the rules of the road changing for the bay area's whackiest race. what you need to know.
