like a hawk. >> this little guy, that is my 3-year-old, blake. so he is going to have to watch where he is roaming around, too. nevermind running on the field getting hit by a ball. just keeping him out of the street and away from rattlesnakes now. >> and as i said, now is the time. rattlesnake season generally runs between april and october. a hungry 400-pound bear will have a starring role in the rose played. the glendale city council just approved a float design inspired by a bear. he was caught snacking on frozen meatballs from a garage refrigerator. meatball lives in a wildlife sanctuary in san diego county and the float sunday construction. you can see meatball peering out of a trash can. >> it's great to see that they have something they can rally around and it's something the residents remember and obviously with the bear now out of the area, it's no longer hunting anybody in the area.

>> the project will cost $155,000. the city is lining up funding from private donations and corporate sponsorship. meatball. >> these are not manmade snow balls. these are baseball-sized hail stones. the product of updrafts that lawrence karnow will talk about in a moment. they happened in wichita, kansas yesterday. authorities in reno county say that the hail broke car windshields, damaged roofs. look at the size of those! man, it's no wonder they do damage to cars when those things fall. something we are unlikely to see in the bay area anytime soon. >> did you say [ indiscernible ] >> you know what that is? >> if you cut them in half you can see rings around there to see how many times they went inside the thunderstorm up and around. today is the big channel 5 barbecue. we have have some good weather. >> are you hungry? >> starving already! looks like it's going to be very nice weather for the barbecue. and pretty much anything else you want to do in the bay area. we have dense fog at the coastline early on but that is
6:50 am
going to start to break up. more seasonal weather around the bay area today. and really the good news is, only minor changes over the next five to seven days. monsoonal clouds moving out of town. that means we'll dry things out. of course we had a few showers yesterday. still the possibility of some thunderstorms up over the sierra nevada but for most of us, just a little warmer outside except at the coastline. going to have to deal with more low clouds and fog going to peel back towards the beaches as we head to the afternoon but i think it will hang out at the coast again for today. most of the bay and the valley looking clear and the temperatures going to be warmer. at sfo we have some possible delays due to low cloud cover early on but by the afternoon lots of sunshine. and around the country the possibility of some thunderstorms into denver at 84 degrees. 99 and hot in houston. around the bay today you will see temperatures in the 80s and low 90s well inland. a few 70s and 80s inside the bay and 60s at the coast. next couple of days steady as she goes. then we'll cool down slightly with a few more clouds throughout the weekend then slow warming toward the middle of next week. let's check the roads with
