5:00 am
look at the conditions this tuesday morning. a live look at the bay bridge and 880 in oakland right now. we are going to get a check of the forecast and, of course, traffic. >> of course. >> of course. >> of course. it's jacqueline's favorite day of the week. >> it is. happy tuesday. >> okay. >> love the enthusiasm. >> it's my most productive day of the week. i get more done on tuesdays than any other day. >> and tuesdays i'm always dragging. >> i'm going to get all of you guys on board with the tuesday thing. >> no. i like friday. friday is still my favorite. >> you don't have to abandon friday. >> we don't have to sign up for tuesday either. i think we are pretty productive each and every day but i'm glad you like tuesday. and just because you like tuesday i have a special forecast for you. warmer day today than yesterday. visibility rye now is -- right now is unlimited. look at that view. wow, it is a terrific tuesday. looking out from sutro tower in an easterly direction towards the bright lights, look at the hills there, you can imagine them, the bright lights of the
5:01 am
berkeley hills, oakland as well. temperaturewise 47 degrees in santa rosa, 54 degrees now in oakland and in san jose. the coast is clear. a little stratus off the immediate seashore but that's going to stay there. today we will experience temperatures in the 60s at the beaches. the winds right now are on the light side, under 10 everywhere. pretty bearable. bearable winds late day today, 10 to 20 miles per hour, but our numbers stacking up warmer than yesterday, low 60s at rockaway beach, 60s and low 70s around the rim of the bay to nearly 80 in mountain view. it will be 80 today in san jose, 78 degrees on monday. how about mid and high 80s east bay, almost 90 towards the delta, 84 napa. full forecast featuring a cooling trend coming up 18 after the hour. right now let's send it over to jacqueline. >> a nice and easy ride for drivers heading through oakland. take a look at this. this is 880 and your way from 238 up towards the maze there
5:02 am
remains in the green. traffic on the ride, that is the northbound direction, 20 minutes up to the maze. no delays as you make your way out of livermore, but heading into livermore out of tracy, you will be tapping those brakes, speeds drop right around 37 miles per hour. that is your cruising speed. we are still in the green from 205 out towards 680, tracking our travel time, a little over 20 minutes so not too bad but if you want to avoid the roadways, you can use mass transit, b.a.r.t. running right on time. >> thank you. in just a few hours, we should learn the fate of the man accused of killing sierra lamar. the jury is expected to read the verdict in the case. kpix5's anne makovec has been following the trial and joins us live outside the courthouse. anne. >> reporter: the jury had so much circumstantial evidence to deal with in this case. the burden of proof of course is on the state and this verdict is going to be read here at 9:00 this morning. the defendant, antolin garcia torres, he is charged with
5:03 am
capital murder in the disappearance of sierra lamar who disappeared on her way to school in morgan hill in 2012 so that was five years ago. her body has never been found. the prosecution highlighted forensic evidence throughout this case, like sierra's clothing fibers in garcia torres' car, her hair in a rope on his -- in his trunk and his dna on her jeans. the challenge for the prosecution is that there is no body and no crime scene. garcia torres is also accused of trying to kidnap three other women in 2009. and at the end of closing arguments last thursday, we heard from sierra's father. >> it's been a long trial but it's just a blink of an eye compared to how much time we haven't had sierra with us, so it's not anything. now we wait and we pray and we hope for justice for sierra. >> reporter: throughout the three month trial the defense
5:04 am
tried to cast doubt on the dna evidence saying it may have been tampered with. the defense suggests that sierra lamar was unhappy at home and simply ran away. the defendant has never spoken in his own defense. again, we are expecting this verdict to be read this morning at 9:00 a.m. and antolin garcia torres is eligible for the death penalty should he be found guilty. live in san jose, anne makovec, kpix5. today san jose city council considers immediately enacting an ordinance that prevents landlords from evicting people without a reason. the council recently approved a policy putting a stop to no cause evictions. at least nine tenants claimed they have been handed evacuation notices since that ordinance was passed. now mayor sam ricardo joins the council members who says an urgency ordinance would -- emergency ordinance would prevent -- steering young people away from flavored tobacco products. kpix5's jessica flores is live
5:05 am
in oakland on the ban they are introducing this afternoon. jessica. >> reporter: michelle, oakland city council will consider banning all flavored tobacco products. now, their big motive here is to keep kids away from trying these products. federally there is no ban on candy or fruit flavored cigarettes but when it comes to cigars -- excuse me, there is a ban on those candy and fruit flavored cigarettes, but when it comes to cigars, tobacco and videotape oil -- vape oil, there is no federal regulation. oakland wants to keep shops from selling any of those flavored tobacco products. san francisco is also considering a ban, leaders from both cities say big tobacco uses flavored products to entice young people to try the product. >> big tobacco is a predator and they are guilty of profiling, always looking for new customers to backfill the ones that their product has killed. >> reporter: oakland wouldn't be the first east bay city to
5:06 am
take a stand against big tobacco. berkeley bans flavored tobacco products near schools. now, today city council members will be here at franco galo plaza on the steps, they will be announcing this piece of legislation at 4:00 p.m. reporting live in oakland, i'm jessica flores, kpix5. >> thank you. more questions this week about the u.s. role in afghanistan and the trump administration's connection to russia. >> and these concerns come just as a new and not so flattering biography of former president obama hits bookstores this morning. for more insight, we turn to our washington insider, mark sandalow. what's the buzz about this new biography? >> reporter: good morning. this is nine years in the making, 1500 pages. this is written by pulitzer prize historian david garyo. this is not the most flattering picture of barack -- barack obama. it makes him sound like a calculating man who early in his life in his 20s decided he
5:07 am
wanted to be president of the united states and in order to do that, he needed to embrace his african-americanism. he had a white girlfriend who he said, according to this book, that a white wife was not going to let him go too far in african-american politics. there's no law against calculating and ambition and in fact probably you need a huge degree of that to succeed at the level barack obama did. but now that he's left office, this book presents a picture of him which is probably not the way that a lot of his supporters would like to see him portrayed. >> let's shift gears a little bit. president trump, meanwhile, has some decisions to make this week on afghanistan. >> reporter: so the pentagon has presented a plan that's been circulated where about two or 3000 troops would be added to afghanistan and the pentagon would have new powers to on its own go after the taliban much more vigorously. what's interesting about this, if you go back it has been
5:08 am
since october of 2001, shortly after the terrorist attack that the united states has been at war with afghanistan. that not only makes it the longest war in american history, 16 years, it also makes the third president, president trump, bush, obama, trump who have all felt it necessary to continue a war there. it is something that is seen in that intelligence which still is not apparent, i don't think, to the american people that tells each of these presidents all of whom have said we need to get out of afghanistan, that it's critical to keep an american presence there. at some point some of that intelligence is probably going to have to be made more public. >> finally, what did we learn from yesterday's congressional hearing on the trump administration dealing -- administration's dealing with russia? >> sally yates, she talked about what had been wildly reported but she confirmed under oath that she, six days after donald trump was inaugurated, went to the white house and told them that michael flynn, their national
5:09 am
security advisor, was a security risk because they had evidence he was not being truthful when he said he hadn't spoken to the russians before he became national security advisor about sanctions being put on them. what's remarkable about this story is this, at the time nothing was done. trump did nothing. about two weeks later the "washington post," who trump berated as fake news, printed this story and trump said this is ridiculous, and then a week later flynn was fired. it makes it look very, very clearly as if the trump administration wasn't so much worried about flynn's russian connections as they were it becoming public and getting caught with it. that was what was disturbing out of yesterday's hearing. >> mark sandalow live in washington, d.c., thank you. two northern california men killed in a plane crash at lake berryessa. why coworkers say the men were always pushing the limits of what's possible. new parking restrictions in effect in one south bay city.

5:31 am
eligible for the death penalty if he is found guilty of capital murder. antolin garcia torres has pleaded not guilty in the case of the 15-year-old sierra lamar. she disappeared on her way to school in morgan hill in 2012. garcia was arrested after investigators found her dna on his -- his dna on her jeans in a field near her home. sierra's dna was then found on an interior back seat door handle and on the outside of a pair of work gloves in garcia torres' car. the defense suggests that sierra lamar was unhappy at home and just ran away. >> the defense did a good job of relating to the jury in what is a very difficult case when you talk about the kidnapping and murder of a teenager. >> reporter: garcia torres is also accused of trying to kidnap three other women in
5:32 am
2009. now, if he is found guilty, we will move to the second phase of this trial, the penalty phase, and the jurors will weigh if there are enough mitigating factors to give him the death penalty. he has never spoken out in his own defense. this verdict will be read at 9:00 this morning. live in san jose, anne makovec, kpix5. today we expect to hear more witness testimony in the trial of three santa clara county jail guards charged with murder. deputies jarre, rafael and matthew ferris are charged with the beating death of michael tie rein august 2015. text messages to and from fairer took center stage in court yesterday. in one exchange ferris wrote to another guard about a troublesome inmate saying, quote, we got him, bro. he was expletive ha ha, the guard texted back i want to hit him today. that guard took the stand and told jurors the texts were, quote, sarcasm and banter.

5:34 am
few high, thin cirrus clouds and, bam, what do you think? >> yes, pretty. >> we are looking out towards the island from the embarcadero past pier 9 and i used the flag to gauge the wind speed as well. winds have been under 5 miles per hour this morning in san francisco. otherwise it's 47 degrees now in santa rosa. we are in the 50s around the rim of the bay, 51 degrees in the trivalley. 53 redwood city. we have a couple of clouds off the coast, very shallow decks of low clouds developing right there behind me. we also have these clouds that have been developing around inverness through bodega bay. we will enjoy sunshine from the coast through the bay into our inland areas. now, our winds again are under 10 but they are variable. west-southwest fairfield we have a south-southeast in berkeley, winds later today, variable 10 to 20. here are three things you need to know about this forecast.
5:35 am
today pans out to be the warmest day of the workweek, significant cooling begins tomorrow and then all the way through the weekend pretty much below average temperatures, albeit on the mild side. pinpointing your forecast today, 60s, a string of 60s backing all the way to monterra beach. this does include ocean beach and the sunset district. 60s, 70s around the lip of the bay today to 78 degrees at mountain view. talking 80 in san jose which is well above average and up from yesterday's high of 78 degrees, low 80s around santa rosa back in through healdsburg into occidental. approaching nearly 90 from fairfield into vacaville and approaching the delta, brentwood, also discovery bay, byron and orwood and low 70s from berkeley to oakland to richmond. we will talk about the cooldown that will occur at 48 after the hour. right now send it over to jacqueline. right now we are tracking problems for drivers. if you're heading over towards the bay bridge toll plaza, metering lights are on, pretty typical for this time of morning. the backup stretches to the
5:36 am
maze and now we are getting reports of a big rig crash. two big rigs got into it. this is on the upper deck heading westbound right as you're heading into the tunnel. now, we will take a look just past those metering lights and it looks like traffic is still moving okay, but we will continue to keep a close eye on that. bridge crews trying to get that cleared off as quickly as possible. san mateo bridge in the green, 16 minutes from hayward over to foster city. getting a little crowded out there. so likely to jump into the yellow there any minute. that is a check of your traffic. i'll send it over to you, kenny. today a vote scheduled in oakland on a measure that would require the city council to approve any new police surveillance equipment. been under discussion since the battle over a centralized surveillance center was announced back in 2013. it would have allowed police to monitor feeds from city traffic cameras, license plate readers and cameras at public schools among other sources. concerns about the secrecy surrounding the project forced the city to scale it down
5:37 am
considerably. local congressman is making a big statement and an accusation about president trump and ties to russia but the trouble may be lack of proof. >> kpix5's sandra osborne is live in the studio with a look at democratic representative eric swalwell's claim. >> he represents california's 15th district which covers most of alameda county and if you have looked at his twitter account in the last year or his website you will see his thoughts posted about the president and russia. well, yesterday on cnn he says he has seen classified information convincing him of ties between donald trump and russia. >> there is a public information that we discussed, you assert that at points of collusion we were questioning if it does have you seeing things on the classified side that you cannot tell us about, though, that is even stronger evidence than what is out there publicly. >> yes. >> okay. so there are things that you cannot tell us that you think are more, you know, perhaps
5:38 am
more convincing than the public information? >> there's a pattern here, john, on the classified and unclassified side of deep personal, political and financial ties that donald trump and people in his family, in his businesses and on his campaign had with a foreign adversary in russia that converged at the same time that russia was interfering with our campaign. >> and swalwell was pressed for any further proof, he did not give that but he did go on to say that there was evidence of collusion. now, the president took to twitter yesterday on the topic tweeting these two statements back to back, first, quote, director clapper reiterated what everybody including the fake media already knows. there is no evidence of collusion with russia and trump. he also tweeted this, the russia-trump collusion story is a total hoax. when will this taxpayer funded sha charade end? former super bowl mvp joe

montana is suing the developers of san francisco's sinking tower, the lawsuit alleges the millennium tower has sunk a total of 16 inches since 2008. the developers knew about it and they failed to tell prospective owners like himself. the city of san francisco has launched an investigation to figure out what went wrong and determine if it's fixable. there's new information about rent control in mountain view. the california apartment association is dropping their lawsuit against the city. the group says that they will likely lose the case because of the judicial climate. they wanted to challenge the measure voters approved last year, calls for rent rollbacks to 2015 levels on apartments built before february 1st, 1995. last week the government reported that u.s. worker productivity has fallen to a near 35-year low. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger shares some practical tips on how we can use our time more efficiently. how can we better focus our attention during the workweek?
5:40 am
>> reporter: you start by establishing a routine and then, of course, challenge, you've got to stick to it. of course more work hours does not mean more productivity. and we tend to be more focused and efficient when we have a limited time horizon. so you want to schedule your day, group those meetings and communications into specific blocks, then a separate block can be really maintained for uninterrupted work, that's when you can complete those harder tasks that require deeper concentrated thought. always prioritize your days past. the one thing you really need to get done during the day and of course don't forget to schedule a few breaks in between. >> always comes down to discipline, jill. so the things that we are supposed -- were supposed to make us more efficient have become a distraction in many ways so what should we do? >> reporter: okay. let's admit it, we are dithering on our phones, surfing social media and it has been a -- has become a time suck. that's limiting our ability to
5:41 am
focus on more important and worthwhile activities. to help you out, schedule the periods of time when you're allowed to use the internet and engage on social. the rest of the day stay away. you know that even glancing briefly at your in box or looking at your friend's facebook page reduces your cognitive capacity to focus. it also takes a long time to get back to what you were doing. so consider using auto responders, letting people know you don't respond to e-mails during certain times of the day and, of course, limit the number of apps on your phone, turn off those push alerts and sounds for text messages to prevent interruptions. you will probably become more productive but even better, i think you're going to be a little happier. >> time to delete some certain apps that are distracting. jill schlesinger this morning from new york city, jill, thank you so much. >> like temple run. >> snapchat. >> yeah, exactly. 5:41. people on both sides of canada are dealing with historic floods this morning. we will have a closer look at all the damage.
