i know where steve paulson is. he knows about the weather. >> the fog is back. it will be cooler, you two. for sure. some of the most inland locations may have to wait. it may come down a few degrees for some there. watch the fog bank start to move in in marin county and down towards santa cruz. there is plenty to go around. low clouds, cool to mild. temperatures, 50s. we will end up with 60s, 70s and a few towards clearlake and brentwood. mostly sunny. most locations are coming down from 83 to 73 in santa rosa. down 5 in san francisco. livermore only down two. and east san jose down three degrees. low clouds and fog an on shore breeze from this system. moving towards the northeast. some of the cloud cover can drag across sacramento valley and northern california for build-ups there. i think we're just too far to the south. 40s for some. 50s for many. and temperatures are running a little cooler this morning.
7:01 am
46 woodside. same for atherton. there's more of an on shore breeze, not so much of a wind but a breeze that is allowing the fog to come in. the system will brush by us today and tomorrow. and then warmer weather later in the week. 60s, 70s and low 80s for those away from the coast. you've had plenty on your plate. what is going on. >> we have a lot of slow traffic out there. i'm going to start in the east bay and look at highway 4 which is slow. highway 4 might be a little extra slow this morning as people are trying to avoid 242. pardon me. i had to cough there. westbound highway 4 is slow. 242 had an earlier accident near 680 at 24. i'm sorry. near 242 at 680. that's gone. but traffic is still slow. slow from 242 to 24 and then down into alamo. as we look at the east shore freeway, it is a 38-minute
7:02 am
drive from the carquinez bridge to the macarthur maze. your average speed, 31 miles per hour. when you get to the bay bring, you start the timer all over again. 25-minute delay from the time you get there to when you make it on to the span. 880 northbound is recovering from earlier issues. if you're driving across the san mateo bridge, traffic here looks pretty good. we had an earlier accident. for the most part the traffic is okay for the morning commute. likewise for the dumbarton bridge. south bay commute is beginning to fill in. there is 280 in san jose on the right northbound. you can see it is slowing from downtown up into the valley. 7:02. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. thousands of striking ucf service workers are going back to the picket lines. day two of the three-day statewide strike. >> alex savidge is at the campus to bring us more on the striking workers and what is happening today. >> reporter: these striking uc service workers are getting a lot of support today from uc nurses and medical technicians who have joined them on the
7:03 am
picket lines today here at the ucsf campus as well as other uc facilities across the state. this is part of a sympathy strike. the union wants to draw attention to what they say is the university of california's unfair treatment of its low wage workforce. yesterday about 25,000 service workers walked off the job at uc facilities across california, including medical technicians, custodians, food service workers and shuttle drivers. they're represented by the american federation of state, county and municipal employees, local 3299. now, the union says the average striking worker makes about $40,000 a year. this is a planned three-day strike that was called after negotiations broke down. of the big sticking point during those negotiations, job security for these workers, wages, and retirement benefits. >> this is a moral issue. this isn't just about dollars and cents.
7:04 am
it is a moral issue. does the university of california stand for social mobility or stand for a monument for inequality? that is the core question. it is a question that the workers are asking and the public will be asking in the coming weeks. again, uc made the choice to walk away from the table. they need to make the choice to come back. >> reporter: administrators issued a statement saying the union is demanding a 20% raise over three years and the university says it cannot justify such a raise. the university has hired replacement workers but the impact of this strike still is being felt across the state, with hundreds of canceled appointments at the various medical centers part of the uc system. this is a three-day strike. after tomorrow, the workers will be back on the job. the union says if the university doesn't return to the bargaining table, it is always possible, the service workers could return to the picket lines. alex savidge, ktvu fox 2 news. >> and because of the uc

7:09 am
years ago. she says very little has changed since then and now she wants an update on any hiring changes. the time is 7:09. another rape kit backlog. this time in marin county. in a moment, just how long some of the kits have been waiting to be tested. >> reporter: will he stay in or get out? president trump with a big announcement on the iran nuclear deal today. i'm doug luzader in washington. we will have more on that coming up. the commute in the east bay is pretty slow. a lot of the freeways are jammed this morning. this is a live look at highway 4. you can tell it is moving along slowly into concord. he's been called a rockstar lawyer. he tops the charts on progressive causes...

winning pro bono battles for immigrants and the homeless. defending gay rights and gun control. democrat jeff bleich. after columbine, bleich led president clinton's youth violence initiative. with joe biden, bleich took on domestic violence. served president obama as special counsel and ambassador. maybe bleich can't pull off the rockstar look... but his progressive record is solid gold.
7:11 am
>> welcome back to mornings on 2. our time is 7:11. president trump says later today he will announce a decision. in fact later this morning, he will announce a decision whether he will pull the united states out of the iran nuclear
7:12 am
deal. the president has repeatedly threatened to do it. doug luzader is joining us live from washington. doug, with a lot more on what we can expect. good morning, doug. >> reporter: dave, good morning. a lot of build-up for this. about four hours away from the president's decision. we knew this was coming. he has a decision to make on one specific aspect of the agreement. there has long been a question about whether the president would abandon the entire agreement with iran. something that he talked about on the campaign trail. he is dealing with a lot of different pressures. there are a number of u.s. allies urging the u.s. to remain part of this deal. on the other hand you have another u.s. ally, israel, who has long been skeptical of this deal. and even among the president's advisers, there is not one consistent point of view. so he is hearing a lot of different things about this. his inclination seems to be to get out at least some of the
7:13 am
aspects of this. not scrapping the entire deal, not keeping the whole thing, but refusing to wave off the -- the reimposition of sanctions on iran's central bank, for instance. so that may be the most likely scenario as we try to kind of guess what the president is going to do today. >> talk about the addition to his national security staff, john bolton and others impacting this decision. >> reporter: yeah. the national security staff, john bolton is the newest addition there as the national security adviser. he has been a critic of the iran deal. even outside of the national security council staff, you also have mike pompeo, the new secretary of state has long been critical of the iran deal. the president also has advisers like general mattis, for instance, who has been generally supportive of it. he is hearing varied opinions on this. those may come into play or he may go his own direction. >> we will wait and see.
7:14 am
doug luzader live from washington. thank you for that update. we appreciate it. coming up at 11:00 this morning, we will carry and bring it to you live, president trump and his announcement on whether the united states will leave the iran nuclear deal. now, our question of the day is this: what should the united states do about the iran nuclear deal? remain in the deal? leave the deal? or you don't know? let us know what you think by voting on the ktvu twitter page. you can also comment on our facebook page as well. here is a look at the results so far. 58% say stay in the deal. 28% say leave the deal. 17% say you just don't know. continue to voice your feelings on this and let us know. the time now is 7:14. new this morning, president trump says he is talking with the president of china this morning. our president tweeted i'll be speaking to my friend of china
7:15 am
this morning. the primary topics will be trade where good things will happen and north korea where relationships and trust are building. it comes as china's president met with kim jong-un over the past two days. it is the second meeting between the two leaders in less than two months after a secret meeting in beijing last march. this video is from the march leading. this leads up to the anticipated talks between kim and donald trump which are expected to take place in the next month. the time is 7:15. sal is right there watching our commute. everybody behaving for you? >> yeah. i would say so, dave. >> okay. >> and gasia. right now we have traffic that is more normalized. i think earlier in the morning we had more crashes because the roads were wide open. once it gets slow, people are driving too slow to get into serious wrecks. we do have a lot of slow traffic building up, getting on to the bay bridge, which is typical. driving into san francisco. 880 has become a little slower. of earlier this morning, we had
7:16 am
a problem on 880 near marina where there was a bunch of debris and they opened the lanes back up an hour later but the damage was done with slow traffic. we have traffic that will be slow on the approach to the san mateo bridge all the way across. no major issues they're but the traffic continues to be slow. the south bay commute, we've had a couple of things. again, northbound 101 taking it on the chin here with some issues with slow traffic getting up into sunnyvale. at the very least though what we don't have is any problems in the santa cruz mountains. that has kind of a sore spot lately. there is 280. it will be a little slow from downtown san jose up to the west valley. but as we transition into weather, steve, it looks like it is sunny in san jose. >> san jose is. others have the low clouds. it will be cooler for everybody today. came in this morning and there really wasn't that much over

conference semifinals at oracle. >> they lead the pelicans in the best of 7 series 3-1. the warriors came back for a dominating win in game 4 in new orleans. tonight's game tips off at 7:30. >> we will be watching. i'm watching sal right now because he is watching our commute. how does it look? >> you know, it will be slow. and we do see slow traffic on the east shore freeway, dave and gasia. this morning's commute will be slow. not only there but also highway 4. and 680 looks like we might have something new. 680 at 242. so all of a sudden, the commute that had been a little rough is getting rougher. as you can see, 40-minute drive to the macarthur maze. it is a little longer than usual on this cloudy day at the bay bridge. you can see 880 northbound as you pass the coliseum is getting slow as well. some of the commute on the peninsula is also now beginning to slow down on 101 in
7:46 am
burlingame and san mateo. 280 is the better bet driving up and down the peninsula. 7:46. let's bring in steve with today's weather. >> darn, sal. it is almost 7:47. >> here we go. >> i hate that sound. >> see, i wake up to soft music. this morning, we have a lot of low clouds and fog. woke up to dino again this morning, dave. alexa, wake me up to dean martin. >> way to go. >> big fog bank compared to yesterday when there was nothing out there, except the coast was clear, sunshine. morning fog. mostly sunny. a few clouds to the north. system rotates through to the north. we will see more sunshine thursday and more so friday and saturday. saturday could be windy and warm. we get an off shore breeze. once we get closer to friday, we will tackle that. it is pretty good on most of the coast. not all of the coast. but low clouds, cool to mild.
7:47 am
60, 70s, 80s. maybe a few upper 50s san mateo coast if you can't break through the fog bank. what is average 73/51. 98 in 2001. the record low, 1897, 38 degrees. it won't do much with the cloud cover. had a little going for it. i would think northern mendocino county, northward up to the oregon border, sacramento valley could be in line for a few showers. not for us here. we get the effects of the system coming in by giving us a bigger fog bank. there's a lot going on with the system. by the way, next week, it looks like another one maybe a little stronger might sneak in around next wednesday or thursday. if that's the case, probably not big rain producers. i buy it because we're seeing this pattern. we have a ridge that builds up for a day or two and then the
7:48 am
low knocks it down. 50s on most of the temps. a lot of 50s there. woodside made it to 43 this morning. now 48. low 50s for everyone including los altos and menlo park. mid-50s over to union city. upper 40s, low 50s monster a, moss beach. belmont is already 56. san carlos and foster sit needling other the mid-50s. a westerly breeze out to the delta which was at this time yesterday collapsing which allowed temperatures to warm up. you can see that there that is the dip in the jetstream. that has to swing by today and tomorrow. that will cool us down. we will go cooler the next few days. wednesday will be the coolest day. a transition on thursday. friday and saturday warmer. saturday could be windy. there are hints of that. 60s to 70s to low 80s for some today and overall the warmest temps to the north and east. temperatures there will probably cool off tomorrow. but for most, i would say 90% today will be a cooler day.
7:49 am
certainly over by the coast as well. 50s and 60s there. they get the sunshine and then 24 hours later, they're socked in most locations. warmer weather is on the way into the weekend. >> and the weather is perfect. ♪ hold me close ♪ >> there you go. dino. >> dean martin. perfect. >> yeah. dean and steve. >> i don't know about that. dean and frank. >> i love that. the time is 7:49. improving safety in berkeley. coming up at 8:00, the event happening right now and the project that makes both pedestrians and cyclists safer. and how about this, are you addict today social media? up next a look at the signs that you need to take a break from your favorite social media apps and websites. every fire department every police department
7:50 am
is part of a bigger picture. that bigger picture is statewide mutual aid. california years ago realized the need to work together. teamwork is important to protect the community, but we have to do it the right way. we have a working knowledge and we can reduce the impacts of a small disaster, but we need the help of experts. pg&e is an integral part of our emergency response team. they are the industry expert with utilities. whether it is a gas leak or a wire down,
7:51 am
just having someone there that deals with this every day is pretty comforting. we each bring something to the table that is unique and that is a specialty. with all of us working together we can keep all these emergencies small. and the fact that we can bring it together and effectively work together is pretty special. they bring their knowledge, their tools and equipment and the proficiency to get the job done. and the whole time i have been in the fire service, pg&e's been there, too. whatever we need whenever we need it. i do count on pg&e to keep our firefighters safe. that's why we ask for their help.
7:52 am
>> the time is 7:52. so many of us rely on social media to keep up to date with friends and family and the news. some feel it is taking over and cutting into real life interactions. there are concerns how social media impacts our mental as well as physical well being. you might be considering taking a break from social media. let's help you do that or at least consider it. happy to welcome fox medical team here with answers. dr. mike, let's talk about the physical negative effect that's can come from too much social media. >> well, gasia, this is almost
7:53 am
an epidemic in our country. people are on social media so much. and so late into the evening that it is leading to sleep deprivation. and that has been shown to be negative in terms of your physical health. people are gaining weight, they're not sleeping. they're falling asleep at the wheel and their performance at the job the next day is suffering because of all of that. now, there was a study, gasia, that just came out four days ago calling it the social media paradigm where you have so many friends on your phone. yet you're isolated and lonely which can also increase risk of depression and anxiety. there are a lot of negatives if you are addicted to that cell phone. >> how do we know if we're truly addicted or just really like to be on it? >> well, like anything else, gasia, if it is affecting your
7:54 am
life negatively, then you're doing too much. in my practice, if i talk to people about alcohol and alcohol use, if someone is saying you drink too much or you're on that phone constantly or you're -- you're at dinner and you never look at me, all of those things are signs. your job performance is going down. your physical health is not what it should be. all of those things. one other thing, your relationships can suffer also because perhaps you put something on social media that is taken the wrong way and that can lead to a disharmony, if you will, with your friends and family. >> some people have taken the extreme measure of going cold turkey. my concern would be how do you use it sensibly because you know we're not just going to throw our phones into the ocean. >> well, gasia, like anything else, there are some people that can do that. and some can't do that. just like other addictions. so if you can use it sensibly
7:55 am
and use it responsibly and it is not affecting your life., go for it. it connects you with the world and many, many friends. the problem is if it is affecting your life and you can't stop, you might need to put it away. i like the idea of taking a holiday. take a break for a month. just see what it is like to actually interact with friends and family without a phone. if i wasn't a doctor, gasia, if i didn't have to answer patients calls with chest pain, i would put it away and i would interact with my son, my daughter and my wife and i would be a better father and a better parent and a better husband. that's what a lot of people need to do. get rid of it. >> yep. >> take a break. >> good advice from dr. mike. thanks for joining us this morning. >> gasia, thank you. >> my pleasure, gasia. >> thank you, dr. mike. the time is 7:55. there is a new tactic for losing weight fast that could
7:56 am
help you lose 14 pounds in a month. and to do it, you have to get an injection. scientists at imperial college in london developed a hormone injudge e that may help you lose 14 pounds in just four weeks. they say patients naturally ate 30% less food after getting the injection and it even helps diabetic patients come off of their medication after they lost the weight. some more details about this treatment is expected to be in a medical journal at a later date. and there's a new study that says fasting for just 24 hours will boost the regeneration of stem cells and speed up your metabolism. the study by mit looked at the effects of fasting in mice and found that just 24 hours of calorie restriction flicked a metabolic switch in the gut area. as we get older, our intestinal stem cells fail to regenerate as fast. to kick start them could help
7:57 am
improve several issues like infections and even cancer. 7:57. new information to bring new the golden state killer case. the connection the dna has to a long-distant relative in i'd and a new report that says the golden state killer may not have acted alone. will he stay in or get out? president trump with a big announcement on the iran nuclear deal today. i'm doug luzader in washington. we will have more on that coming up. the ride on highway 4 is going to be slow this morning still as you come up to concord. but it is improving quite a bit. we will tell you more about the improving conditions. improving conditions for cooler air. if you thought yesterday was too warm, you will like today. even though there is sunshine inland, temperatures will come down. look at the extended outlook coming up.
7:58 am

8:01 am
>> mike, you probably saw it on your way in. >> fog. >> fog city. >> good morning. >> nice sliver. >> a few inland may have high clouds. decent system coming in for may. that will give us a cooldown. higher clouds. no big deal inland. the big news, the fog coast and bay has come roaring back for some. inland mostly sunny. 52, 51, 54. san jose rocking it up to 58. there is a south breeze under sunny skies. plenty of low cloud as long the coast. city down five. wo. and saa rosa from 83 to 78 toy. look at that. right off of the mendocino coast. more in humboldt county. it will drag across as it goes northward. then it will dive into nevada by friday which will pick up the winds. something to watch the next three to four days. today it will be cooler. 50s on a lot of the temps.
8:02 am
52 to 58, 60, book an an always runs warm -- buchanan always runs warm. it will be cooler for many as this system moves across. clouds to the north. low clouds even though it will be sunny, it will be cooler. 60s to 70s and low 80s. 8:02. new or the old. >> we have the old. one thing just popped up at todd road in santa rosa. there is an injury accident on the shoulder on to the way to santa rosa. coming on the east shore freeway, driving in from hercules and out to the macarthur maze, a string of minor accidents, closer to the carquinez bridge. also slowing in richmond driving to the richmond toll plaza. and coming this way towards the bay bridge toll plaza, it is backed up for a 25-minute delay, which is not unusual. 880 has certainly filled in. it is slow from near 238 all the way up to downtown oakland.
8:03 am
and the san mateo bridge traffic is slow pretty much all the way across. this is a look at the dumbarton bridge. the road sensors are slow as well. back to the desk. president trump will make an announcement on the iran nuclear deal. >> expected to be announced at 11:00 and could have an impact on our economy, especially gas prices. doug luzader has more on the story from washington. >> reporter: good morning. could have an impact on any number of aspects of the economy. we will see what the president decides. the president has to decide whether to stay in the eye lan nuclear deal, get rid of it or something in between. a modification in the deal is always a possibility as well. >> and doug, would you say that, you know, there's been some polls suggesting the majority of americans are against pulling out of the deal. what about world leaders in
8:04 am
china, russia, england? have they chimed in and given any advice to president trump. >> reporter: well, primarily the closest u.s. allies and you look at germany, france, the u.k., all the of them have really been lobbying pretty furiously in recent days to get the president to stay in the deal or just seek modifications instead of scrapping the whole thing. that seems to be the most likely path. you have israel, a staunch u.s. ally who has been suspicious of the deal from the get-go, keeping in line with president trump's thinking, especially on the campaign trail, it was a center piece of the obama administration. and the other aspect of this has to do with the president's base. after talking so much about this deal and getting rid of it, will the president kind of do a 180 on that and decide to do something else, like modify the existing deal? it certainly is a possibility. but he will have to put that in
8:05 am
terms that his base will accept. >> what is the result, doug, if the president decides to pull out completely? >> reporter: well, the real wild card there is what would iran do? now there is certainly a possibility that iran would try to salvage aspects of this deal with europe. trade is important to iran. more important than trade with the united states even. it is possible that the united states could get out of the deal and it would survive in some fashion. on the other hand, iran has hinted at the fact that they may simply start nuclear enrichment again. that is problematic. so there may be no easy answers to this. but we may see from the president an effort to simply strengthen the deal that is already there. perhaps allow some sanctions to go back into place in terms of iran's central bank. perhaps to stop there for now to see if he can cut a better deal. >> all right. doug luzader live from washington, d.c. thank you.
8:06 am
ktvu fox 2 will bring you the announcement on the iran nuclear deal on ktvu at 11:00 this morning. our ktvu question of the day is, what should the u.s. do about the iran nuclear deal? 54% say the u.s. should remain. 31% say it should leave. 15% say you don't know. let us know what you think by voting on thtwitter page and leaving us coms on twitter subpoena facebook. here at home, happening now, thousands of ucsf service workers are back on the picket lines for day two of a three- day strike, hoping to call attention to stalled contract talks. today thousands of nurses and technical employees are joining them to draw attention to the unfair treatment of low wage service workers. 30,000 walked off the job across california yesterday. the union says the average striking worker makes about $40,000 a year. the university has hired replacement workers but the impact is being felt. hundreds of appointments have been canceled at various
8:07 am
medical centers across the state. we will hear from santa clara county judge aaron persky. the judge in the case involving brock turner. he sentenced turner to six months in a jail. a ruling that sparked angry across the country. he is the subject of a recall effort on the upcoming ballot in santa clara county. if successful, he will be the first california judge recalled from office in 86 years. he is expected to speak and answer questions between 1030 and 11:00 this morning. we're finding out how investigators looking for the golden state killer got the big break in the 40-year-old case. they had identified a rare genetic marker in the suspected killer joseph deangelo. a woman was searching for family and uploaded her father's dna into the data base. it had a rare marker. her father was not a suspect but gave the fbi permission to dig more into the family's
8:08 am
history. that led agents to deangelo who is expected in at least 12 homicides and more than 50 rapes. the is detective that came up with finding deangelo through family tree searches said it is possible that he had an accomplice during the early crimes but that investigator says he believes the homicides were committed by deangelo alone. this morning a group of bicycle safety advocates are calling attention to what they say is an unsafe intersection in berkeley. >> alex savidge is live in berkeley with what the group wants to see changed. alex. >> reporter: good morning to you, mike and gasia. we're along busy san pablo avenue at virginia street which is a bicycle boulevard in city. they say this is a particularly dangerous intersection for cyclists and pedestrians to try to cross. that's why this morning you can see you have a number of volunteers out here holding up large signs urging drivers to make sure they stop for people trying to cross the street here. this can be a stressful intersection, especially for kids to try to cross and a lot
8:09 am
of schools in this area and kids try to make their way to and from the schools here. it can be difficult to cross the intersections. and that is why this group of frustrated parents and bike safety advocates are calling for safety improvements here at this intersection. i want to bring in ben stein, one of the organizers of the event. good morning to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> reporter: tell mehat you would like changed at this intersection and other dangerous e ins here in berkeley. >> first off, we're really pleased that the state of california will install a traffic signal, a light here, a beacon. that will make it ease whyer for pedestrians to get across the street. we want to see that improvement benefits both cyclists and pedestrians, making it easier to use the street it you're walking or biking on the street. >> reporter: and you were saying there is -- there is a plan in place for a caltrans safety improvement project. this is a state highway we're on. san pablo is highway 123. there is a caltrans pro edge in the works and you want improvements to make sure that
8:10 am
cyclists have the ability to activate the beacon and alert drivers that they're going to cross. >> yes. it has been 20 years since it was planned and we still have frustrated that we cannot get across busy streets. >> reporter: how tough is it to cross the intersection as a cyclist? >> when i try to cross this intersection with my two young children, it is one of the most stressful moments of my day. i can't tell you how many times i've had to yell at my kids and pull them out of the traffic way while we're trying to get across. and there are easy fix that's we can put in place? thank you. a number of local bike safety advocates are out here making a point about just how dangerous it is to try to cross this particular intersection. they have the large signs. they're getting a lot of cars to stop. likely drivers that may not be stopping otherwise if this event was not taking place.
8:11 am
they will be out here until 9:00 this morning. >> a visible group. thank you, alex. another high profile politician is resigning. we will have the latest on the sexual misconduct allegations against new york attorney general eric sneiderman. the google develops conference is about to get started. the new features that the tech giant is expected to unveil on the topibs of artificial intelligence and battling phone addiction. good morning. you can see that traffic is going to be busy if you are driving on highway 4 still coming up and over the willow pass grade.

8:16 am
to help people, and especially families with kids to manage the time they spend on devices. artificial intelligence will be a key highlight here. it could include updates on google assistant. the voice activated digital helper. and an explanation of how ai, artificial intelligence, is being used to develop other products. also google photos is supposed to get a boost from that artificial intelligence technology. outside of the conference later this morning, separate from all of this, there are two group that's plan on having a poe test here. there are group that's describe themselves as progressive women advocacy organizations. they plan to deliver a petition to google with more than 100,000 signatures. they're criticizing google for fake anti-abortion ad that's pop up whenever someone does a google search on abortion services. the groups want google to change the way it displays the ads because the groups say the
8:17 am
ads that come up on those searches are misleading and they want google to do something about that. so they're turning in that petition about an hour from now. later on they will have a protest at google headquarters. the developers conference is a three-day event. more than 5,000 developers come to attend to hear the latest updates on google's technology. and so that gets started with that key note address from the ceo at 10:00 this morning. back to you guys. >> big week for the bay area company. allie rasmus live in mountain view. thank you. 8:17. let's see if the morning commute is winding down. >> unfortunately, gasia, it was winding down. then we got a whole spade of new things going on. gasia and mike, we are going to start -- if i can say that again. we're going to start in the east bay. i'm going to show you the east shore freeway that had a couple of crashes. now there is an injury accident there. and traffic is slow. as you approach the richmond bridge, you need to give
8:18 am
yourself he can interest time. if you're driving between the cara liu and the macarthur maze, a 41-minute drive. at the bay bridge toll plaza, it is 20 minutes to wait here before you make it on to the span. a lot of congestion on 880 northbound passing the coliseum up to downtown oakland. the peninsula is slow which had been fine but now we have a lot of slow traffic in san mateo and burlingame. all of the south bay commutes are filled in. northbound 280, north of saratoga, getting up to cupertino, slow traffic there. 280 is slow through downtown. again, it will be slow in many areas the last part of the commute. it is 8:18. let's bring in steve with the weather. >> thank you kindly, sir. >> sure. >> yesterday i couldn't find any fog. it was clear. temperatures warmed up. overnight, the fog machine decided to kick in big time. morning fog. mostly sunny. a system dragging across to the
8:19 am
north that will give us a few high clouds. it will be warmer. tricky tricky forecast going into friday and saturday. the wind will pick up. the question, will it be a northwest wind or north or northeast. too soon to say. i would bank on more wind friday and saturday. if it is a northeast, we will get very warm on saturday. a low cloud deck for most of the coast but not all of it. it is getting helped out by this system. this is going parallel, even northward heading towards humboldt county and of course over towards the oregon border. that will drag across northern california though. it being this low. the low will go up to the north and then go up and then on friday start digging into nevada. the question, will it dig more towards salt lake city or more towards the sierra. if it is more towards the sierra, we will be windy and cooler not windy and warmer. because you get the off shore breeze. a couple thing to keep in mind heading towards friday and
8:20 am
saturday. not today. today we get the temperatures mainly in the 40s. some 60s. certainly it will be warm out to eastern contra costa county and lake county. but 58 campbell. 59 san jose. santa cruz mountains, still 40s there. santa clara is 49. campbell is 58. this was about 8 miles per hour yesterday. this being fairfield. that's a big difference. the delta breeze is alive and well. the low clouds and fog are being helped out by this system right here that will usher in a cooler pattern today and tomorrow. then we will rebound friday and saturday. the key though, the breeze will be there. the question, what direction. it looks like it will be warmer saturday. then cooler sunday. so up and down we go. 60s and 70s coast and bay. upper 70s, low 80s, clearlake and vacaville. still dealing with mid-80s there. might cool off one or two degrees for the inland areas compared to yesterday when we had wall-to-wall sunshine. temperatures 70s to 80s. temperatures on the coast, 50s
8:21 am
and 60s. after yesterday's beautiful day. today they're dealing with a lot of low clouds. 70s on the peninsula. cooler today and tomorrow and warmer into the end the of the week. >> saturday, close to 90. >> yes. new questions surrounding the oakland police department. what is being said about the diversity of recruits and the changes that one city council member would like to see.
