6:04 am

6:19 am
move by, dropping maybe as much as a half inch in parts of the north bay, lesser amounts further to the south. nonetheless, very impressive to get rain at this time year. so carry that umbrella with you today as this cold front moves on through. things staying unsettled and wet today and possibly into tomorrow morning. and then it looks like it's going to move out of town. here's some timing on one of our computer models showing the moisture makes its way slowly through the bay area through the middle of the bay as we head through about the noontime hour. this afternoon, sagging south. so you get the idea, slow mover, temperatures well below average. 60s and 70s outside for highs and that's it. but this is all going to change in the not too distant future as high pressure will start to sneak in here by late tomorrow afternoon. and that means some warmer temperatures expected into thursday. much warmer, hot, toward the holiday weekend. some temperatures near triple digits into sunday and monday. that's a look at weather. let's check on traffic with elizabeth. >> thank you, lawrence. and unfortunately, we got a lot

6:32 am
house? maybe not that far, even. >> reporter: you guys are safe and sound? >> we are, yes. >> reporter: great, thank you very much. that was the case for the rest of the residents in the area as well. no injuries in this fire. wind was a factor, though. the fire department had to send out backup extra trucks because the wind picked up and that can cause a fire to spread, as we know. no injuries in this fire. no buildings were damaged. but it is a strong reminder that we are in fire season and certainly, as you make your way into the 4th of july holiday, make sure to keep that dry shrubbery trimmed around your house. and if you're in a place that allows fireworks, set those off far away from where any fires can start. >> thank you, kristy seifkin in concord. police have arrested two men after a triple stabbing in walnut creek. officers responded to a fight last night at a car wash near geary and north main street. they found two victims who are now listed in stable condition. they say a third person was injured but refused treatment. bail for the two suspects from

walnut creek set at $50,000. los angeles police have some new evidence in the bryan stow beating case. it is video apparently taken shortly before the attack outside dodger stadium. anser hassan is in san francisco with how this could impact the case. >> reporter: good morning. bryan stow is in a coma still at san francisco general. the police are reviewing the latest video released by tmz. the video shows bryan stow in his giants jersey inside dodger stadium allegedly on the night of his beating. the 12-second video was released on monday. tmz is not saying when or where they got it. now, stow appears to be avoiding a confrontation with an angry dodger fan who looks to be yelling and screaming at stow before return to his seat. the man is wearing a ban da 23 jersey, he is unidentified. the stow family watched the video.
6:34 am
his sister erin said "it was heartbreaking to watch and see the shock and scared look on his face." what does this mean for the investigation? it's more evidence but it also shows that the man confronting stow is not giovanni ramirez. ramirez is the lead suspect in the case. that means there could be other suspects to consider. >> the implication is that if bryan stow was being wowed about his disdain for the dodgers, that there are multiple possible suspects here. >> a tape like this can be misleading to either side. >> as long as it doesn't show the actual incident occurring, it only opens the door speculation. >> reporter: giovanni ramirez is currently serving a 10-month jail sentence for violating parole. he is the lead suspect in this case and he was arrested in may in connection with the beating. lapd has gone through hundreds of pieces of video and surveillance video, as well.

cold front moving in right now. cloudy skies in the bay area and the rain has started to fall to our north. you can see it up towards santa rosa some moderate amounts of rainfall in this direction but it's sagging further and further south. likely to move through the rest of the bay area throughout the day today. so bring that umbrella if you are heading out the door. we are going to see some rain outside today. temperatures going to be way down, highs only expected in the 60s and 70s. hey this is one beautiful cold front working its way on through. these numbers well below average. we could very well head well above the average the latter part of the week. we'll talk more about that in a moment. let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> thank you. and we will go right out towards the bay bridge toll plaza. we got a good sized backup already this morning. it extends -- did you say whoa? whoa, yeah. >> glad i'm not there. >> yeah, i know, a lot of people have to deal with this every morning. stacked up beyond the overpass. 10 or 15 minutes to get on the bridge and then still slow up the incline all the way towards

6:38 am
conditions. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yeah. falcon fans here in san jose have been outraged at the shooting of these two peregrine falcons in oakland earlier this month especially since one of them is mate of a baby chick born on top of san jose city hall back in 2008. we'll have more on that in just a sec but first, as you mention. , it was earlier this month that these two falcons were found in oakland with pellet wounds in their bodies and wings. they were rushed immediately to the lindsey wildlife museum where susan heckly says they underwent immediate surgery. >> it's guarded prognosis because we don't know how everything is going to happen. we don't know if the bones will knit together properly. we don't know if the birds will be able to fly once everything is healed inside. >> reporter: she says the birds are now eating on their own so that's good news. now, the mother falcon is nicknamed hia. she is the mate of hico who was born on top of san jose city hall 18 stories up back in 2008. and that's one of the reasons that falcon fans here in san
6:39 am
jose who have been watching these chicks being born on the popular falcon webcam are now donating to the reward fund that's set up to catch the guy that shot hico's mate in oakland. as you mentioned it's now up to $1,000. that money will be given to the person who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever shodded shot the birds. shooting a falcon is the violation of federal and state laws under the migratory bird treaty act. i'm matt bigler live in san jose for cbs 5. >> matt, i guess the birds weren't shot on the same day, they were shot like a week and a half apart. so they really think someone is out stalking these birds? >> reporter: it's possible. that's one of the reasons that the game wardens are looking for whoever the gunman is. they think someone may be hunting the birds and if it's pellet wounds it could be a shotgun of some kind and they are definitely interested in getting some information to track that person or persons down. >> okay, matt bigler live at

[ laughter ] >> all right. thank you, let's take you out live to show you what it looks like out there. here's a live look through pleasanton. as you approach the dublin interchange, this is westbound 580. there was an accident actually earlier in the morning right there as you approach the dublin interchange. it is long since cleared. so right now we're dealing with about 25-minute drive time from the altamont pass towards this area right here towards pleasanton. elsewhere slow traffic and misty conditions which lawrence was just telling us about the in north bay. you can see it from the view of our golden gate bridge shot. this camera is positioned just before the toll plaza. so far, southbound looks great coming into the city not much slowing traffic there. where it is slowing here, the bay bridge. metering lights have been on since about 6:11 this morning, so stacking up towards the 880 overcrossing and it is a slow ride. we're seeing brake lights all across the upper deck heading into the city. so just your usual stuff through here. also, pretty sluggish through antioch. westbound highway 4, once you reach a street, that's when we
6:46 am
start to see these speeds under 10 miles per hour now. and it remains that way all the way towards hillcrest. speeds do improve into pittsburg into concord. then things turn green. so green is good. we like to see green out there. and we are seeing some green in silicon valley for the silicon valley commute westbound 237 as you leave milpitas. so far, so good, typically closer to about 7:00. that's when we start to see some delays coming off of 880 towards zanker road. right now, you are good to go. and up and down 101, we should have a live camera. well, this is the central freeway. into and out of san francisco, looks pretty good. if anything changes when you hit the roads, remember kcbs, our radio partners, at 740-am and 106.9-fm. we share all our information with them. that is your traffic and weather. back to you. >> thank you. san francisco helps lead the way as home prices are on the rise actually across the country. >> here's jason brooks with kcbs and jason, this is actually a good sign, right? the market may be recovering?
6:47 am
>> a little sign. >> oh. >> reporter: basically the hope here according to the kay schiller report is maybe we have seen the second bottom reached in home prices since the bubble burst. we saw losing streak of eight months end in april with a slight gain in the top 20 market. about a .4% gain from the month of march. although it was still a decline year-over-year. san francisco area saw a 1.7% gain but still prices were down 5.5% from the year before. only one city, washington, d.c., actually had a year-over- year gain of about 4%. housing prices the -- housing market still really stinks. and spring is the real prime time buying season. we haven't seen it materialize. the only thing to hope for is perhaps we are once again seeing the bottom and maybe start to gradually come back a little bit higher. greece is another factor. we have seen violent protests taking place as people are upset about another round of austerity cuts that are going
6:48 am
to be voted on tomorrow by the greek parliament. that austerity measure must be passed in order to get a second bailout in order to avoid defaulting on greek debt. stock market reacting to that, hoping we'll see something. like to see positive housing news. the dow up 71 right now. nasdaq up 17. s&p is up by 7. also getting word that consumer confidence fell in june. still in positive territory, but the fall there isn't going to help things out today, grace and frank. >> you know what? we have had so much bad news, any kind of glimmer of hope we'll take it. >> reporter: yeah on the housing market no doubt. >> i sold mine, believe it or not. i took a bath but finally unloaded it. >> reporter: that's the problem. you lose money in the process. >> he said this before. they asked for the refrigerator, the big-screen tv, they wanted the lawnmower. >> reporter: they wanted your 401(k) account in the process. >> i said you want the bed spread in the master bedroom, too? come on. it is what it is right now. >> reporter: certainly is. >> at least we sold it. thank you, jason brooks with
6:49 am
kcbs and well, everyone is waiting for the new iphone to finally come out. >> but apple could actually shake up the tech world by releasing two of them this year. cnet editor at large brian cooley joins us today. is this true? >> this is the new rumor. >> my fossil. >> i have frank's here. normandy mali we have one iphone on the market -- normally, we have one iphone on the market at the same time. what could happen for the first time is apple may release two iphones at once this fall and here's the reason. look at this graphic on the screen. the red bars you see there is the market for expensive smart phone. the blue bars are the market for more affordable smart phones. notice that's growing starting this year rather remarkably after 2015 until they get to more people wanting affordable smart phones than expensive ones. it's roughly at parity but it's a growing curve. a lot of people don't want a two-year commitment. that's about a $2,200 experience when you count it all n that's a lot of money.
6:50 am
>> it is. >> plus the cost of the phone plus the activation fee. >> and if you want to change carriers, you're stuck for two years or pay a big disconnection fee. so apple may have a new version of the iphone 4 for the prepaid market, boost, virgin, cricket, those kind of guys to give them a bump in the specs and they may give the 5 to verizon and at&t with all the bells and whistles like an 8 megapixel camera and a dual core processor which is in the new ipad 2. so they might vary the market. they want to hit like a $300 to $500 for the lower cost market. isn't clean. but realize that that's with no commitment so you're not tying into a $2,000 marriage on top of that. the iphone today if you buy the iphone 4 or 5, this is a $650, $700 device with the memory. so they are talking about bringing the price down by half
6:51 am
for the prepaid market. >> if you are looking for two years and you prepay before, right now, when you post pay it's $2,200. what is it when you pry pay? >> it can be a better deal on data plans, significantly cheaper. you have no commitment. you can buy the minutes as you go. and the other thing is a lot of those guys still offer unlimited data. at&t and verizon and the big boys are getting away from that. they are giving you plans with limited data amounts. still a big amount but it's a limit. the unlimited data tracts a lot of people so that's the market apple wants to play stronger. >> when is it coming out? >> this is rumor, in the fall, perhaps august for september availability, put that as a rough idea. >> it's late for at&t to be joining the prepaid market, isn't it? >> well, the whole idea of getting prepaid is to go after boost, cricket, metro pcs, virgin mobile, the guys that are getting a lot o market. theyit's month by month and
6:52 am
prepaid. >> no commitment. >> thank you, cnet editor-at- large brian cooley. >> thank you. time now 6:52. crucial piece of evidence in the bryan stow beating case on video. we are going to share it with you coming up. >> and a confrontation caught on tape. there it is right there at the dodger game. that's bryan stow and and angry dodger fan. that's coming up. and if you have a story idea or comment to share with us, email ,, i tell ya, i work a long day, every day. i hang my head out the window. oh man, we're delivering everything you can think of: plywood, cement. i, i enjoy the breeze on my tongue. well uh, and every weekend, seems like we're headin' down to the lake. we're pullin' a boat or somethin'.

6:56 am
stow appears to indicate he wants no part of the confrontation. the stow family watched the video of. stow's sister erin told cbs 5, it was "heartbreaking to watch and see the shock and scared look on his face." giovanni ramirez remains the lead suspect in the case. his attorneys admit this new video doesn't prove ramirez is innocent. lapd says this new video is new evidence that they need more information about what happened the night of the attack outside dodger stadium. reporting live, anser hassan, cbs 5. >> thank you. 6:56. two men are in jail this morning for a triple stabbing that happened in walnut creek. it happened around 9:30 last night at a car wash on north main street. police say an argument turned violent and three people were stabbed. two of the victims are in stable condition following surgery. the third victim, though, wants bad his hurt. the state legislature -- >> the third victim though was
6:57 am
not badly hurt. the state legislature is going to propose a new budget saying it will close a $9.6 budget deficit. they will do it with more cuts and newly projected revenue. the governor has abandoned his push to extend tax increases. it's wet and drizzly. from fizzle to drizzle? >> i thought you put your doppler to bed. >> we'll be working it hard as we have the rain showing up around the bay area. clouds now making their way in toward the east bay no rain just yet. but that's about to change. and here it is. you can see more of that rain located in the north bay right now. but this whole cold front that's sliding to the south, so we are going to see rain picking up, becoming moderate and heavier amounts at times, maybe even the possibility of a couple of isolated thunderstorms. so a very interesting day weather-wise here in the bay
6:58 am
area especially for late in june. a chance of a couple of lingering showers as we head in toward tomorrow. but then i think we start to dry things out and as we do, a strong ridge of high pressure likely to build in by friday. we're talking about some of those temperatures up into the 90s in the warmest spots inland. as we head in toward the holiday weekend, near triple digits just the way elizabeth likes it. >> a smorgasbord of weather, huh? the low pressure for you, the high pressure for me. >> i'm happy all around. >> yes. it is really gray out there. look at this, here's a live camera across the san mateo bridge. the right side of the screen a little difficult to see this morning but that's the commute direction and despite the kind of misty conditions out there, your drive time still holding steady at 13 minutes out of hayward toward foster city and the peninsula. bay bridge unfortunately has had a big backup since 6:15 this morning. continues to grow. right now it is jammed solid to the macarthur maze. no incidents, just all those commuters heading into the city this morning. so it's sluggish all across the upper deck. south bay 280 doesn't look too bad out of downtown san jose.
6:59 am
easy ride towards cupertino. and a little sluggish right now just like we usually see it around this time of the morning as you leave 880 on westbound 237. so a few brake lights there. and mass transit, everything is now on time. we were dealing with some earlier ace train delays but everything is now good to go. and bart also no delay there, as well. >> hard to see it in some of those cameras. you have to rub your eyes. >> it's the weather. >> well, we have a warning. you won't see this on your morning commute. watch out for zombies. this was in newfoundland, canada. >> commuters are looking up at "expect apocalyptic doom." pranksters reprogrammed the sign. city crews took it down after a while. >> that happened in boston and they said road closed ahead,
