6:44 am
close to making public filing. if we see the market pull back, could force twitter to postpone plans. the dow dropping 132 points. nasdaq is down by 32. s&p lower by 12 points. back to you. >> not looking good. all right. thank you . >> let's kick it over to traffic now at 6:44 and see how the roads are going. >> roads are looking okay. we have drizzly condition s out there. no major traffic delays. i'll get to that in a few minutes. first, we'll show you live pictures of 280 in san francisco. so far there are no traffic delays for the northbound drive approaching the extension south of market area. the 101 drive in the silicon
6:45 am
valley. the 880/237 inter change is holding steady. haven't had any major problems so far this morning. the san mateo bridge looking good. a little sluggish now as you approach mid span. and over at the bay bridge toll plaza, the metering lights are on and traffic is backed up from the foot of the maze. it will be a slow commute. fortunately i-80 still doing okay. no delays for mass transit. bart's looking good. no problems either for the alameda oakland ferry. >> a lot of clouds out there right now. we have rain showing up. we've also seen some of that dragging to the south. things going to stay unsettled throughout the day. grab that umbrella if you are headed out the door. not going to be a major rain event. then by the afternoon, a mix of sun and clouds. still a chance of a few lingering showers to the north
6:46 am
and dry weather likely to make a return as early as tomorrow. much warmer temperatures toward the end of the week. strong cold front diving in to california. so we're left with just a few light showers. mild and humid conditions outside. a little bit unsettled around the state. the further north you go, better chance you are going to run into rain drops. 69 degrees. temperature wise, 60s and also some 70s and as we look out over the next couple days, return to dry weather tomorrow. warmer toward thursday and friday. and by next weekend, should be spectacular. it's time for our kpix 5 schoolcast. got a great one here. diannefienstien. cloudy and a chance of a few lingering showers. you do that heads up 7 up? >> no. just splash in the
6:47 am
puddles. >> i love that outside too. if you'd like to nominate your school do it at and we'll put that on the air. >> thank you, lawrence. the clock is ticking down on a government shut down. we're going to start feeling the impact right here. >> melissa griffin joins us now to talk about how the government shut down will affect us in california. first of all, what is going on in washington? >> if only. if there was anything i could say that was family friendly. essentially as you might have heard, republicans and the house of representatives have stated they are not going to pass appropriations bills unless those bills include obamacare. and the senate said they are not going to pass a bill that includes obamacare. this is going to be different from 1996. 7 of 12 appropriations bills had
6:48 am
already been passed including military spending. the pain that was felt in 1996 is going to be less than what we're going to see here if at midnight tonight. >> how about here in california? >> it's interesting. over the last couple days, hours and hours of floor testimony. we have 169,000 federal employees that are going to be subject to furloughs. in addition, we have 14,000 government contractors that are not going to get paid if the federal government shuts down. a very passionate speech. after that federal senator got up and said the army core engineers are going to have to stop work on the folsom dam. finally, nuclear upgrades are going to be halted. and i want to point out one thing that
6:49 am
happened in 1996, visas were bag logged and slow down. so places like california who rely on tourism will see the hit. the department of state is going to focus on emergency permits and visas. not going to be processing travel visas. >> oh, boy. so what's next? >> there are a couple options. one option is for both sides to agree to a 7 to 10 day continuation of funding of the government for a few more days while they continue to negotiate the terms. another option would be in the house of representatives, if enough people scream and yell in districts where republicans in congress are, they need 120 republicans to call for a vote on a no strings, no obamacare strings appropriation. and then they only need 18 republicans to sort of cross the isle. so
6:50 am
that's another option. becoming increasingly distant option. up over the last several days. those in addition to the shut down seem to be the only things that could change the course. >> has this led a fire under them? burning the midnight oil or? >> they did meet on saturday and sunday. actually, for them i want to point out, they actually continue to be paid. their staff don't get paid but congress and senators are considered essential to government funding. a lot of people disagree with that. one last night, i want to point out obamacare, that thing that everybody's fighting over, does not require an appropriation to continue. if neither side goes into agreement, obamacare will not be affected and become law and there will be nothing anyone in the senate or the house can do about that. >> welcome to america.
6:51 am
>> exactly. >> thanks so much. you can find more of melissa's segments on president obama meets with israeli prime minister today. when it comes to nuclear weapons. >> and the count down is on. the government could face a partial shut down if congress can't find a compromise. how the affects in washington trickle down here to the bay area. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:57 am
affect the tourism industry. all national parks would be closed. wouldn't see typical long lines and this means the thousands of tourists would need to make other arrangements. and tourists tell us this would be a shame if places like these had to shut down because the government couldn't come up with a compromise. >> shouldn't do it like this. close down some of the other stuff that's not important. >> other major attractions that would close would include john mir's old home and rosie riveter. if there is a shut down, social security payments will still go out and so will unemployment benefits. medicare will still pay claims but payments to doctors and hospitals could be delayed. you will still get your mail. other essential government services including airport security and
