4:01 am
areas like richmond. that stretch down i-80. berkeley, emeryville. all starting out with cloudy conditions. and it will continue to move inland just a little bit as we roll through the first part of your morning. as we get into the winds. the onshore breezes with us, fairfield, reporting 20 miles per hour or so. concord. gusts to 23. napa sustained at 13. the onshore breeze is with us. and patchy fog, with only little change expected as we move through your afternoon today. we will remain a little bit cool for this time of year. 60s at the coast. a lot of 70s around the bay. mid- to upper 80s for our hottest spots, which for the afternoon. the partly cloudy skies. and the possibility of that fog moving back in in time for the fireworks, over areas like san francisco, berkeley have some to deal with. here's a look at temperatures now. low 50s in santa rosa. upper 50s in oakland. 54 in livermore. and low clouds will pull back.
4:02 am
expecting partly to mostly cloudy skies at the coast. our south-facing beaches. stinson beach. santa cruz should get some afternoon clearing. but again, look at the color coding here. temperatures are very mild. when i come back, i'll have a look at the numbers. we'll look at the weekend and what you can expect if you're headed to areas of tahoe. today is the 4th of july. hear the music? and the nice weather will probably mean big crowds at all of the bay area parades planned for this morning. and there are quite a few of them with two in contra costa county, starting very early. the danville parade. a big one, starts at 9:00 a.m. but this parade is so popular, people set out their folding chairs along the route, hours in advance. and the parade at pleasant hill will start at 9:30. many others will start at 10:00 a.m., including parades in redwood city. alameda, sausalito, fremont and san jose, the rose, white and blue parade. then at 11:00 a.m., there are
4:03 am
parades in vallejo and piedmont. most of them and several other cities also hold picnics and concerts after the parades. and throughout the day. and in san francisco, one of the bay area's most popular 4th of july traditions, is that big fireworks show. now, it starts at 9:30 tonight. but they have been getting ready for days. hundreds of thousands of people normally line up to watch this 25-minute show that we talked to people who are excited about tonight's fireworks show. and say celebrating america's birthday makes them proud. >> i'm a veteran. and i was in the army. and i'm patriotic. and i like to salute the flag and enjoy fireworks. >> it's just the freedom of the whole united states. you know. we get to do what we want to do. when we want to. how we want to. >> i heard this was going to be happening. so i'm looking forward to it. >> the fireworks are fired from barges out in the bay. and if there is not much fog, which we hope, you can see them from several places
4:04 am
around the city. and across the bay. two of the prime viewing locations are san francisco's aquatic park. and pier 39. now, treasure island is normally a great place to watch the fireworks. i go there normally. but this year, visitors are being told, stay away. that's because there's so much construction going on, on treasure island. many of the roads are closed. and there really isn't any parking at the normal viewing areas. well, the coast guard has a couple of reminders for boat owners who want to watch the fireworks out on the bay. boaters, you're being told, stay away from the barges that are used to launch fireworks. also, you're being told, don't launch or use fireworks aboard a ship or a boat. because it could be mistaken for a distress signal. and the coast guard warns, using flares as fireworks. saying mayday as a radio check. that's a federal felony, because it could distract from an actual emergency. and another big fireworks
4:05 am
show will be launched from san jose's discovery meadow. that will start at 10:00 tonight. you may remember last year, the faa shut down mineta, san jose airport during the show. because the fireworks were so close to the flight path out there. the faa hasn't said if it planned to take that action again this year. well, most public transporting a will operate on holiday or reduced schedules for today's holiday. san francisco's muni is running on a sunday schedule today. but it will run buses instead of cable cars, after 2:00 this afternoon. several lines are being rerouted near the best locations to see fireworks. also, they're offering extra service from cal train. the ferries, the muni metro subway and b.a.r.t. to go to the fireworks' viewing areas, beginning at 3:00 this afternoon. and b.a.r.t. is also using its sunday schedule. meaning service doesn't start
4:06 am
until this morning. but the regularly scheduled trains, they'll be longer. and some extra trains will also be added. the last northbound lanes from the san francisco embarcadero station will leave before 12:30 tomorrow morning. the final southbound train leaves at 1:00 tomorrow morning. and cal train will operate on a sunday schedule all day. but it's already adding extra service after the san francisco fireworks show ends. special southbound trains will operate from san francisco to san jose, making all of the usual weekend stops. the last train will leave the station just after midnight. or when it is full, whichever comes first. now, our website,, you can find a list of bay area 4th of july fireworks and festivities. we've posted a li in more than 20 local communities online. our time is now 4:06. this morning, police in san bruno, still out there. searching for whoever was responsible for the terrifying

4:08 am
other. to be clear, this does not appear to be a random incident. both shooters fled the area just prior to the responding officers arriving at the second floor location. >> now, police believe the shooters hopped onto b.a.r.t. and may have headed as far away as oakland. police found a pellet gun on a train but didn't find the real gun. some of the mall workers said the shooting shocked them and rattled them. but other says they still feel safe. and there was nothing police could do to prevent it. >> time is now 4:08. the two army staff sergeants who helped those wounded young people, they're being praised as heroes now, for their courage that they showed in the middle of all of the chaos. ktvu's south bay reporter ann rubin tells us, a young recruit is also being honored for her quick thinking and her actions. >> i couldn't be more proud of my soldiers. >> staff sergeant isaiah locklear and michael mall were working at the u.s. army
