there. lot of that monsoon moisture is just moving off to the east as that low comes in. it pushes it out of the area. the low clouds are there. there's enough kuehling aloft but there is plenty there this morning. pretty good lightning show in the sierra yesterday. mainly toward the reno side. carson city side. there is an on shore wind in place for some. water temperatures continue to be cold, 52 to 57 degrees. 50's, 60's on the temperatures. east bay temperatures, upper other's, low 60's. not a big difference here. 43 in truckee. they had a big thunderstorm in las vegas. again a lot of that is pushing out of the area. you don't have to worry about anything here in the sierra looks to be toward the east. the fog and low clouds, that system will impact us over the next couple days. a cooler pattern in place and look for a temperatures to be in the 60's, 70's and 80's. 4:31. sal is here and he will talk about -- i noticed -- one of the off ramps was a lot

with this. this won't clear any time soon. let's talk about the solano county commute. 80 westbound. you can see traffic moving along well. no problems in the east shore freeway and getting down to the mcarthur maze. it's still light though some of the outside lanes are getting full. the lobbying effort is heating up for new gun control laws. the president now said he is willing to consider expanded background checks for gun buyers. as doug reports, activists still face an uphill battle. >> reporter: the president said he is even willing to call congress back to town if both sides close in on a gun control deal. marine 1 with a late night landing at the white house. the president and the first lady returning to washington after a very long day. spending time in both dayton and el paso, meeting victims, first responders and hospital staff and the president apparently
earful on gun control. >> telling me let's see if we can get something done and republicans want to do it and democrats want to do it. >> reporter: how far is congress willing to go democrats have been wanting expanded background checks. he has received death threats. the president spent time with democratic senator brown who said he pressed him on it. >> the mayor and i asked the president to call the senator to bring the senate back in session to tell the senate that he wants the background checks. >> reporter: what may be more likely is an expanding red flag law that seek to identity individuals who may be a threat and take their guns and that has been proposed in ohio. >> we think it's well thought out. we think it respects the constitution and will save lives. >> reporter: none of this is going to be easy. these proposals raise second
amendment concerns. in washington. fox news. the white house is inviting internet and tech companies for a round table discussion on violence online. it's set for tomorrow but there'list of participants. the president isn't expected to attend. earlier this week he directed the justice department to develop tool that can detect mass shooters before they strike. the owner of the online message barred 8chan where the el paso shooter posted anti immigrant writings is traveling to the united states to testify before a committee. the site is owned by jim watkins, a veteran in the philippines. members of the house, homeland security said he needs to address efforts to battle extremist content. an east bay congressman hosted a town hall. he has been speaking out about the need for more gun
control. >> worked very hard in the midterms to change the constitution post parkland. we won 17 seats where an nra endorsed member of congress had held the seat. we passed background checks and now it's time for the senate to act. >> at last night's town hall there were a wide range of opinions on how to stop mass shootings. >> we don't want to take the gun away from home who hunt or the pistols from people who want to protect their home. assault weapons, most of the people weren't in the military who have them. >> the congress ma'am said he wants the senate majority leader to call a vote on the two bills passed by the house. one on background checks for private and online gun sales and another giving the fbi a longer period of time to investigate potential buyers. the congress ma'am said congressman said he wants to see the president support an assault weapons ban and a buy back program for the 15 million assault weapons on the streets.
the nra sent us this response to the congress ma'am's town hall saying in part the nra welcomes calls to address the root causes of horrible acts of violence that have happened in the country. unfortunately, anti gun politicians are focused on scoring political points by pushing legislation that only restricts the rights of law abiding americans. tonight we will take a look at mass shootings in america. we will look at current gun laws, mental health and what lawmakers doing to prevent more mass shootings. we hope you join us for a ktvu special report, gun guns in america. that's tonight at 10:30. more than 100 bay area women are flying out of oakland in two hours to kick off the civil rights tour. highlights include birmingham's 16th baptist church, a trip to group called

called off. organizers say that the straight pride rally is to celebrate traditional gender roles but critics say they spread a hateful anti gay message. >> when you invite terrorist hate groups to an event and then the city stamps that approval that's no longer protecting their first amendment. that's hate speech. >> everybody is trying to make it sensational and it'll be like a church service. >> the straight pride rally is scheduled for august 24th. it's another day of deliberations in the ghost ship warehouse trial fire. jurors asked for an i-pad to let them view 3d images of the ghost ship warehouse. the defense said that they are confident their clients will not be found guilty. >> this case is the second largest homicide case to go to trial in american history

northbound 101 before highway 85. between bailey road and 85. these are pictures tweeted by the san jose fire department and the pictures just say it all. look at all this. look at these cars on fire. we have confirmation from chp that there has been a death involved in this crash. this is northbound 101 just before 85 and the entire direction northbound 101 is closed. this is another picture, just -- i mean just a horrible looking scene. the fire department is out there with several units. we have a crew on the way. we will let you know more but this is going to have a major effect on your drive northbound 101. it is so early in the morning that we haven't seen it yet. this is going to be backing traffic up soon from morgan hill. it's not doing it yet but it'll do it at some point if they don't open those lanes and probably won't be able to because when there is a fatal accident it takes them a while to do the investigation as well. first of all they have to put the fire out and then they will do the investigation.
let's talk about some of these other commutes. westbound 580 at 205. slow traffic there and photograph take will be okay traffic that will be okay into dublin. no problems on interstate 880. the bay bridge toll plaza. traffic is getting busier. let's string steven. >> someone just said what did he say san jose again >> it's northbound 101 right before -- right between bailey and 85. there is a deadly crash. its going -- affecting 101 for a long time. >> thank you. we will get to it here. the cooling started yesterday it. will continue inland today. temperatures got out of the 90's. settled in to80's. no change there. 60's. inland temperatures, instead of the low to mid-90s. now mainly in the 08's.
probably bottom out on friday and then the system scoots through on saturday and then with a rebound on sunday. kempfield coming down. palo alto 80 and san jose from 78 to 75 and that's the source of our cooldown. there are two systems but that's the main one. the low dropping down. doesn't have a lot going for it but it's starting to tap in to the moisture. not much there but look at the bottom end of the system. see the moisture starting to move in possibility. maybe late friday, saturday could get rain out of that. advance of that there's plenty of low clouds. the sierra was on the lee side yesterday. reno, carson city, topaz lake. that is being pushed off more toward the east due to a west southwest flow. that will do it and there's no doubt about it a delta breeze. 50's on the water temperatures. bodega bay. that the cold. san francisco 57. what's the temperature in downtown 57. see how that works in berkeley
57 as well. mill valley 51. more 60's down toward santa clara. east bay temperatures. truckee at 45. the monsoon moisture which was all over las vegas, continues its trek toward the east. more so now that high is moving and the low is beginning to make its move inland. that push itself out of the way. look for temperatures to be on the cooler side here. below average for this time of year. it's a cooler pattern and will take news to saturday. low clouds, sunny and breezy and watch here to the north. just -- may fine tune this more on saturday morning. right there. maybe a little splash and dash early, early saturday. santa rosa, 60's, 70's to mainly low 80's and not much change into saturday, sunny and breezy. >> all right.
