5:01 am
there. petaluma down to 7 miles. and still doing okay in santa rosa nine mile visibility in napa. stray shower here or there. once the marine layer lifts and retreats temperatures above average. should be at 66. concord at low 70s. beaches low to mid-60s. partly cloudy in the peninsula high 60s and 70s back in atherton and pescadero, low 70s common around the santa clara valley. we swing around to the eastern portion of our bay area around the rim of the bay into the high 60s but the further east you go into the low 70s. and ons good morning to you 72 degrees. north bay numbers 63 degrees. west winds at stinson beach. once the marine layer lifts after sunrise we'll see sunshine in cloverdale and saint helena winchesterer and rohnert park. high 60s and low 70s. the
5:02 am
forecast at 18 past the hour. here's roqui theus with the traffic report. the rush is at the bay bridge toll plaza. the cash lane cars have been backed up for a while. i'm not sure what's going on. maybe a personnel change in the toll but otherwise, i hope you have your fastrak heading into downtown san francisco. that's a quick 10 minutes if you do have your fastrak. moving over now to the caldecott tunnel, eastbound 24 inside the right bore there's a solo spinout blocking the left lane but not causing slowdowns yet. heading to the altamont pass that's not the altamont pass. okay we have new graphic. we're trying to work out some kinks here. here's a live look at the dublin interchange. slow also morning rush commute and if you are traveling on mass transit bart a's muni and caltrain are all on time. i'll send it to you guys. roqui, thank you. any minute now president trump is expected to announce his budget plan. it could give us an idea of how he wants to reshape the nation. anne makovec has what we can expect. >> reporter: this morning's
5:03 am
release is going to be a blueprint of what to expect from the next national budget. if congress approves it, agencies would see spending cut. it's expected to be a $1.15 trillion budget slashing spending at a dozen apartments to financing a significant increase in the military and a down payment on the wall. we are looking at a boost in defense spending by 10% for homeland security of 6% and as far as the cuts, dramatic slashes to both the state department and the environmental protection agency. now, this budget does not have the force of law it's only used as a guideline for congress which ultimately has the power of the purse. the trump administration expected to release its full budget in may and that's supposedly when the 10-year projection on the border wall will be outlined. >> so what kind of deadlines are we talking about in looking for the passage of this new
5:04 am
budget? >> reporter: you may remember last time we were talking about the federal budget we were talking about the buzz phrase the debt ceiling. congress would have to pass a new budget deal by late september because president obama raised spending caps through september. so congress would have to raise that ceiling again before the risk of default. michelle? >> thank you. just a short time ago a second federal ruling was issued against president trump's revised travel ban. version 2 of the order would have temporarily barred new visas from six muslim majority countries for 90 days. a judge in maryland just suspended the portion of the ban blocking the state department from issuing those visas. yesterday, a federal judge in hawaii ruled the executive order discriminates on the basis of nationality and would harm hawaii's tourism industry. >> the fact that there was such great pains to make the language more neutral shows that they were trying even harder to mask what was a
5:05 am
religious animus. >> the justice department quickly blasted the ruling and speaking in nashville president trump continued to push for the original more restrictive version of the ban. meanwhile, the president's immigration crackdown has i.c.e. agents targeting courthouses. the "l.a. times" reports then arresting illegal immigrants at courts in other parts of california and elsewhere. the san francisco d.a.'s office says that's not happening here but they worry about the potential consequences. >> public safety will be impacted for everybody if illegal immigrants are fearful to come forward and work with local law enforcement. >> federal officials say courthouse arrests are only used as a last resort. it's called the eraser challenge and school leaders across the country are warning parents to look out for signs their kids are doing it. kpix 5's maria medina reports from san jose. >> reporter: this is the latest nge. it's actually an old dare but it started hitting social media just a few months ago. now, this is what the eraser challenge s you take an eraser
5:06 am
and you rub it on your skin repeatedly and as fast as you can. now, kids are doing it across the country normally doing it while reciting the alphabet with another kid and comparing their burn marks and that's why school leaders are warning parents because it's leaving serious burns and open wounds on these kids. one school in north carolina posted on facebook a picture of the result of the challenge and advice on looking out for signs their kid is taking part in the eraser challenge. now, the goal for kids is to erase their skin as long as they can so they definitely leave burns and marks on their arms and on their hands is where they're doing it so those are the signs to look for if you are a parent. live in san jose, maria medina, kpix 5. the man who pleaded guilty to kidnapping charges is set to be sentenced today in sacramento. matthew muller could face up to 40 years behind bars for snatching denise huskins from her vallejo home and tying up

5:31 am
entirely. this budget plan will ultimately be in the hands of congress. secretary of state rex tillerson just spoke about the outline from japan. >> we are going to be undertaking a very comprehensive examination of how programs are executed, very comprehensive degrees of how we are structured, and i'm confident that with the input of the men and women. of the state department, that we are going to construct a way forward that allows us to be much more effective, much more efficient, and be able to do a lot with fewer dollars. >> reporter: it includes a down payment on the president's u.s./mexico wall. now, the former president of mexico tweeted about the budget saying that donald trump's budget for his [ censored ] wall will come from u.s. taxpayers. one more lie not only -- the only truth is that mexico is not paying!! we are watching for more reaction from u.s. politicians and international ones.
5:32 am
we'll keep you posted. >> you mentioned some programs that could be cut. what are some examples. >> reporter: some of them are the -- some of the departments that president trump has zeroed in in the past, the corporation for public broadcasting, the institute of museum and library services, the national endowment for the arts, and the united states institute of peace just to name a few. >> thank you. president trump is defending his wiretapping accusation against former president barack obama. yesterday he stood by his statement but still didn't give specific details. >> i will be perhaps speaking about this next week. i think you're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront. >> mr. trump says obama had wiretaps the phones at trump tower during the election. attorney general jeff sessions says he hasn't seen any proof.

5:34 am
won't be able to so you have to use the wipers because of the condensation. that's all associated with that very deep marine layer this morning along the coast and night bay and even extends inland 45 miles. you know, i keep going on the same live weather camera shot because this is the best to cite low clouds and fog. temperatures into the 50s. 54 in santa rosa to 58 in oakland. visibility restricted along the coastside because of that marine layer as it deepens. one mile visibility half moon bay, three miles at sfo. sure to have some delays on some arriving flights at sfo. we'll keep you posted on that. otherwise, visibility hampered a bit in petaluma at 6 miles, 7 in napa. weak disturbance blew through the bay area yesterday causing a stray shower no accumulation. meanwhile, as that pushes on out, it leaves a trail of some clouds today.
5:35 am
so we'll call it partly cloudy overall. or partly sunny. temperatures slightly above average. at the rose garden district, 70. let's swing around to the eastern portion of our bay area. good morning to you in discovery bay at 72. >> rain, rain and more rain, in the forecast. details at 48 after the hour. here's roqui. >> thank you. it is 5:35. we have a problem in the caldecott tunnel and also on highway 24 so let's take a look at that. right after we look at the bridges. a lot of fog headed into san francisco from marin county so keep that in mind heading that way and metering lights are on at the bay bridge toll plaza. so you have about a 10-minute to 15-minute drive from the

maze to downtown. now let's talk about highway 24. eastbound 24 inside the right bore there's a solo spinout involving a box truck. there's a tow truck on scene trying to clear it out but it's taking a while so keep that in mind. the other problem is on westbound 24 now that's a four- car crash heading into oakland from orinda before the fish ranch road exit so as you can see up there near orinda area, there's a lot of red arrows there so make sure you keep that in mind out the door. you will have some slowdowns. if you are going from hayward to foster city, across the span of the san mateo bridge that's a quick 15 minutes. altamont pass still slow 15 miles per hour coming off 205 and then if you are heading to the dublin interchange, here's a live look at that commute. i'll send it to you. >> thank you, roqui. the latest social media dare hitting schools is leaving some kids badly burned. kpix 5's maria medina is live in san jose with what's being called the eraser challenge. >> reporter: it is hard to watch these videos without cringing but this is the latest challenge and it started
5:37 am
hitting social media just a few months ago. >> did you see that little do it. there? this guy in my class, he has this big gash. you just get like blisters. this was a blister. so i have no idea. >> reporter: kids are doing it across the country. normally doing it while reciting the alphabet with another kid and comparing the burn marks. that's why school leaders are warning parents because it's leaving serious burns and open wounds on these kids. in fact, one school in north carolina posted a picture on facebook to show the results of the eraser challenge and for parents to look out for signs of children taking part in the challenge. the goal is to erase the skin as fast as you can and they are doing it mostly on the arms and hands so it's leaving serious burns and cuts and blisters so parents, if you are listening out there, that's what to look
5:38 am
for. live in san jose, maria medina, kpix 5. we have learned how a pregnant teenager's final moments unfolded after she was shot by bay area police while riding in an suv. 16-year-old ebbie mondragon was killed tuesday night in hayward when fremont police fired at a car allegedly linked to armed robberies. her cousin arianna cabrera was sitting next to her. she and other family members say the teen was in the wrong place at the wrong time. >> i didn't really think anybody, like, got hit in the car until he made that right and my cousin grabbed her left side and she started screaming, she says i can't take it and her head fell. >> loved ones held a vigil for mondragon last night. hayward police say this is a tragic incident and one of the risks of trying to arrest high risk suspect. a wild chase through east bay cities ends on the roof of an ice cream shop in berkeley. it all started when police tried to pull over a pickup truck at 14th and harrison near
5:39 am
lake merritt in oakland. it ended about five miles away at ashby and college in berkeley. officers were trying to stop the truck before 7 p.m. last night but the driver rammed into the patrol vehicle and took off. one officer had a broken wrist. he then headed to berkeley where he crashed his truck into several cars outside an ice cream shop at ashby and college avenues. all this before leaving his passenger and climbing on the roof of an ice cream store. he was eventually talked down off the roof. in addition to the driver, officers also arrested a female passenger in the truck. police say that they found a loaded stolen gun in the vehicle. millions of americans could see their credit scores go up due to a change at the three main credit reporting agencies. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to tell us how the development could affect you. jill, good morning. so credit reporting firms they collect data on how you repay your debts and report the results to the scoring companies. what thanks are they making?
5:40 am
>> reporter: well, this week, the three agencies equifax, experion and transunion announced that they will be removing most tax lien and civil judgment data from credit reports. they will start doing that around july 1. now, as a result, nearly 12 million people have these types of things on their records could see their credit scores increase by about 20 points. this is an independent move. it comes two years after the agencies agreed to a broad settlement with lots of different states and that settlement they said they have to remove errors from your report quickly, they have to wait about 6 months before adding medical debt information tower credit reports. now -- to your credit reports. taken altogether these actions are important. the reason is credit information is used for more than borrowing and lending. landlords use it for potential tenants and in some states it's still legal for prospective employers to check your credit. >> remind us what is behind our
5:41 am
credit scores. >> reporter: fico, those scores range from 300 to 850. and the company says the 3 most important factors are, payment history, that accounts for about 35% of your score, your total debt outstanding which takes into account how many accounts you have and how close you are to your credit limit, and that makes up about 30% of your scores, and then 10% of your score is the number of inquiries. they are broken into two types, soft like you going in checking your own credit score on maybe insurance firms purposes. that's soft. but a hard inquiry when you're shopping for a mortgage or car or student loan that can count against you. here's the bottom line. the ubiquitous use of credit makes their accuracy all the more important. that's why you need to go to, reviewed information if there are any errors, you have to notify these agencies. these records are incredibly
5:42 am
important for your entire financial life. >> that is good advice, jill. all right, jill schlesinger, thank you. a jury handed down a verdict in the trial of the former l.a. county sheriff accused of covering up horrific abuse. >> the man known as the "dine and dash" dater has found his latest victim. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
