>> reporter: there is something of a peace treaty to report tonight. san francisco police saying they're going to back off on the crackdown on bicyclists, though they reserve the right to bring it back at any time. bicyclists say if you want to go after the problem, go after the people driving those four-wheeled vehicles. bicyclists were putting their foot down today, literally. this demonstration was meant to show the traffic jam that ensues if every bicyclist makes a complete stop at every stop sign. >> i don't think that anybody should be running stop signs. they're there for a reason. >> this is about pedestrians that don't stop. every morning i get almost hit at least once or twice. >> reporter: the two sides came together at their neighborhood meeting at the park place station. police pointing out that more than 200 citations were given out last week, most through
bicyclists. >> we're trying to encourage the cyclists to share the road and do it in a very safe way, abide by the rules of the road. >> reporter: a spokesman for the san francisco bicycle coalition says if cops are -- the police department says the answer to the problem is for both sides to come together with open minds and stop shouting at each other. san francisco has a plan called vision zero, designed to put an end to bicycle deaths by 2024. score one for the little guy, at least for now. tonight, a temporary victory for people living in san jose's mobile home parks. it's a common fight. they're trying to fend off those high-priced developers. this is a big issue in san jose, which has 59 mobile home parks,
more than any other city in the state. developers have been snatching up parks, putting 35,000 people at risk of losing their homes in san jose. they're mostly seniors and lower wage workers. city leaders approved a six-month moratorium on any park closures. >> we cannot force these owners to stay in business. i want to make sure that we have a team approach, where the owners are listening to the residents and the residents are listening to the owners. >> here's the plan. the city wants to revise a 1986 ordinance that deals with mobile home park closures. another key move tonight in san jose. a green light for sjpd to use drones. but there's a catch. the drones can only be used during hostage or search and rescue operations. the bomb squad can also use them. but they cannot be used for surveillance. the faa has to approve the pilot

this is really anything other than window dressing and kind of a political move. >> reporter: a move that comes after secret grand juries in ferguson, missouri and staten island, new york, made decisions not to bring charges against officers who killed unarmed black men. protesters demanding transparency and the lack of charges against those officers sparked riots in ferguson and other cities. >> the passage of this bill is a game changer. >> reporter: former judge ladoris kordell says the law is long overdue. swhaz they have done by passing this bill is doing something concrete and saying secrecy has no place in the criminal justice system. >> reporter: she says especially when it comes to officer involved shootings resulting in the death of someone. oscar grant was shot and killed by a former b.a.r.t. police officer in 2009. prosecutors charged the officer with murder, but was convicted
of involuntary manslaughter instead. he says this legislation doesn't go far enough. >> it would be tremendous had it been on a national, a federal more than a state issue. so because of that, i don't see it as a real step towards transparency. >> reporter: the new legislation will go into effect on january 1st. live in san jose, i'm cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. the governor signed a bill making it clear that taking pictures of police or videoing officers is okay. you may remember this video of a police officer recording police activity in her neighborhood. but there are limits to recording officers. it's illegal to obstruct an arrest or film on private property where you don't have the right to be. no official word on who he

sacramento valley, lake tahoe and reno, in the exceptional category. we're going to see some hotter temperatures through this upcoming weekend as you'll see in the forecast. of course, that is not going to be good news for the drought. we still have a westerly wind in place, a little cloud cover filtering in, putting us at 66 in the south bay. east bay at 65. the coldest weather at 57. humidity at 79%, so we are beginning to see some recovery in the overnight hours from that fire danger. let's go into the morning forecast. what you'll find here wednesday morning is not a completely cloudy picture here from the north bay to the south bay. areas of sun with 58 degrees. 59 in san francisco and that typical fog and chilly in the north bay with 54. what i'm going to show you next is extremely frustrating. let's get to it. we have this storm system sitting offshore, and the counterclockwise circulation is
helping to spin up some moisture, extremely close to california. this is just so hard to look at, because we want that rainfall here in california. as you see, as we advance this graphic, no way it's going to happen. the storm system is stationary at this point. the way the forecast models play it, this south-to-north motion push thing rainfall away from the bay area will stay in place as we head throughout the next two days, the entire duration of this storm system. so no way we'll get rainfall out of that. where do we go from here? storm system basically helps to enhance the fog pattern throughout the next 48 hours. that is the biggest impact throughout wednesday and thursday. but eventually by friday, we'll get warmer temperatures. by saturday and sunday, that hot weather comes in with low 100s expected for the interior valleys. talking high uv index, poor air quality. let's get you into the microclimate forecast. in san francisco, beautiful weather tomorrow.
68 in the financial district. 70 in the mission for the peninsula. palo alto, 81. pacifica, cooler of course. and for the south bay, a beautiful day in morgan hill with 87 and 87 in san jose. napa coming in with 86 degrees for tomorrow. and yes, it's going to be hotter in the tri-valley, but we'll stay out of the 90s for one more day. friday, heat begins to arrive. trivalley up to 93 degrees. saturday and sunday, you'll hit 101. i may have to increase temperatures more, so wait till tomorrow and i'll make that decision. >> thanks, jeff. still ahead, your next pair of jeans could charge your phone. we'll show you the new idea. and we have jimmy. >> thanks, guys. kristen stewart is my guest
