5:18 pm
to allow for cooling around here. certainly tomorrow, we saw cooling today and fog at the coast. they tend to get fog at the coast. you know things will cool down we'll see clouds around tomorrow morning. there's the current temperatures. so eh, it's about the same as yesterday now when you look at the numbers. not much difference. so concord the same. fairfield a degree warmer. concord is 10 cooler or oakland is 10cooler and two cooler in livermore so you get the idea. sort of the significance here is, with the fog at the coast, these bay temperatures took a big drop. inland temperatures stayed about the same. so frank and julie were covered on our not getting it right this time. it depends where you were. some places were warmer or cooler. there's the wind going onshore. with that, you have the fog trying to work its way in. love that shot. pretty. beautiful. >> you see mount tam there in the distance. picking it out. what's fun we have never done this is go -- i know you have

5:21 pm
that they have done more often than we authorized. >> reporter: they wanted another 100,000 square feet of office space that would significantly change the north shore charleston east project. it's trying to fix the existing housing imbalance not add to it. google, the international online giant, is finding its own hometown that when it comes to development and housing, you can't always get what you want. >> the problem is when we told google that we were reluctant to build more offices above the ones that are already authorized, they said you know, no new extra offices, no housing. >> reporter: but the vice mayor and google both confirm it was not and our way or the highway take it or leave it threat. what google is saying, in order to create an economic cloudy vibrant and balanced community, we believe the plan has to include office, retail and community spaces alongside parks and residential units. so a new funding source has to
5:22 pm
be found. >> in the big scheme of things a narrow question i don't believe there's any difference of opinion on the overall mission between the two parties. >> reporter: the development area which includes a lot of google buildings is already under a strict traffic limit cap regardless of what google wants to build. >> unless the city council says otherwise, google needs to comply with that trip cap. >> i think we can definitely work it out. but it really does take a level of trust and being forthright and up front with what your real needs are. >> a final decision is still more than two weeks off. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. a major tv star announces she has breast cancer. her prognosis and message coming up. >> plus, sports illustrated jumps into the national debate over how athletes react to the national anthem. its latest cover is make headlines not just for what it shows but for what it doesn't show.
