thursday, july 30th. i'm michelle griego. >> and i'm len kiese. we are standing by for a special report with those new numbers but first, mary lee, has her eyes on some numbers of her own. the temperatures as we go through this thursday. good morning. all right. yeah, good morning to you len and michelle. well, watching those temperatures climb especially inland this afternoon. so a big temperature spread from the coast to our inland spots about a 30-degree temperature difference and we're looking at temperatures heating up inland and mild around bay. and cooler at the coast. so as we go through our day, clearing for most of us except for the coast. 91 in concord this afternoon and 82 saseand 71 for oakland and now let's go to a special report in progress. by the pandemic. we're expecting an historic drop in america's gross domestic product gdp. that's the broadest measure of the country's economic strength. analysts say the economy is in serious trouble right now and we're also going to be getting
5:31 am
numbers on how the pandemic is affecting the job market. the labor department just reported another 1.4 million americans filed for unemployment last week. this comes as congress s ed ove stimulus package to boost the economy and to help people who have lost their jobs. let's bring in cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger. start with the gdp report. what does that tell us? >> reporter: first of all, gdp, that's the total measure of the u.s. economy. goods and services. and we saw a historic contraction in the second quarter. down by just under 33% on an annualized basis. now just to remind everyone, because you don't study econ 101 every day, 33% doesn't mean we dropped by a third over one quarter from another. it means if we were going to push this through for the next four quarters it would be a 33% drop. this amounts to about a 10%
5:32 am
drop from the previous quarter. it is awful still. just remember, the worst performance that we have seen since records have been kept back in 1947 and anthony, this does sort of approach the great depression era. we didn't have numbers at that time. but it's clear it was a devastating contraction in the u.s. economy and that's what occurred in the second quarter of the year. >> yeah and that affected that had of course our job losses jill. what do you think of the unemployment number for the quarter? >> reporter: well, this is clearly just like jay powell said yesterday. the chairman of the fed. the pace of the economic recovery is following the virus. cause we ve seen e viru the south and west, we sort of stopped short on the progress we were making the weekly claims. so to have here in the 19th, 20th weeks since this all began, to have another 1.4
5:33 am
million people apply for unployment it's staggering. more than 53 million people have applied for benefits since the pandemic reared its ugly head. >> how critical does that make another stimulus package, jill? >> reporter: when i talk to economists they believe that extra money that is going to people who are sidelined in the economy right now, that that's imperative. in fact, we do expect the economy will bounce back in the second half of the year. . estimates for you know 13% to 18% increase in the quarter we're? right now but they are predicated to more help to americans and small businesses, without that help the economy could really see its -- fortunes sort of slide a little bit in the second half of the year, again, we've already started to recover. it like the worst quarter is behind us. but people will need the help? so will the economy. >> all right, jill schlesinger,
