6:45 pm
the corporations' own promotional costs, like free bets, taken from the homeless funds. and they'd get a refund on their $100 million license fee, taken from homeless funds, too. these guys didn't write a plan for the homeless. they wrote it for themselves. set to vote tonight on a
6:46 pm
proposal to open a large homeless shelter on an old army base. the city council meeting is underway at this hour. the proposal would provide housing for up to 1000 people at the 22 acre property. if it is approved , it would almost double the number of shelter beds in the city. as of 2019, there was an estimated 4000 people living on oakland streets, and officials say that number likely went up during the pandemic. oakland city leaders met with executives from the oakland a's today in their latest discussions on the plans for a new waterfront ballpark at howard terminal. a report was released just yesterday by the staff of the san francisco bay conservation and development commission had found the ballpark would provide an economic boost for oakland and would not have a negative effect on business. at the ports . he's president dave saville says the report is a good step forward. i think we're on track with the c d. c. we're kind of off track before when you had the advice committee. um, you know, saying no. and so i think
6:47 pm
that puts us in a great position for the june 2nd hearing. where there'll be a lot of public comment, additional dialogue and debate. following the june 2nd hearing. there will be a vote on june 30th by the bay conservation and development commission on whether to remove howard terminal from its seaport plan. an affirmative vote will allow the a's in the city to move forward with the project. already noticed. the warm up today is a good 10 to 15 degrees warmer today was the big jump temperatures into the eighties. tomorrow it'll jump further temperatures in the low nineties at the coast. we've got some waves to talk about some pretty good size swell. it's not a high surf warning or advisory. it's just a beach hazard alert. but you go to the coast. i think you should be thinking about the beach hazard because it's pretty pretty sketchy, especially ocean beach. the way the tides are there in the currents, but you're going to add another 8 to 12 ft. of surf on top of that, and now it's not about the big waves knocking around. it's about the rip currents to get generated because of the big
6:48 pm
waves, right flush water in the water has to go somewhere. so be careful tomorrow if you're out of the coast, mostly on thursday and into friday, thursday and friday will be the biggest days. there's the forecast for tomorrow. temperatures come up, but again, it's not that aggressive jump like we saw today. i mean, today is significant warmup. there's weather system to the north. that system is going to be responsible for our significant cool down. after our significant warmup of tomorrow today and tomorrow and by thursday, this area just sweeps in brings a little shower activity in northern california. be nice if we saw something, but it's not like doesn't like it's in the cards for us, but it will provide massive rapid cooling. there's the high pressure that sets you up for tomorrow. tomorrow is the warmest day of the week. former state we'll see you in a little while and then this system drops in, does what it does be nice, i think, like, don't know art and cape mendocino. you guys will get some rain up around point arena. but for the rest of us just a few clouds and significantly cooler, the wind kind of northerly. that's we consider
6:49 pm
that an offshore high pressure direction typically when you get a north northwest wind, or even just north wind, they're sinking in that high, and that's what we're seeing, and we're seeing warming, increasing temperatures. the winds i keep pointing out 30 miles an hour. sfo is kind of funneling, so it's going blowing west there, but the winds are going to come really unsure aggressively on thursday that marks the significant cooling right now. temperatures are running way ahead of where they were last night at this time, and then the system as it says to the north of us will get ready to swoop in on thursday. in the meantime, fog tries to come back to the coast. in temperatures. read or nineties? that's tomorrow warmest day of the week before i get the coast so be careful out there with the surf would have you and then the forecast highs. i think these are conservative, too. i think napa could easily make 88 fairfield could easily make 93 just mean noticeably warmer and especially along the coast and in the peninsula, not on the coast party along the peninsula and in san francisco and oakland. places like that. there's the five day forecast
6:50 pm

6:57 pm
hopefully, we're there to hold and pick them up, hold their hand and say, hey, it's going to be okay. and if that's not enough star power behind a cause, not many of these tournaments feature guys who have been fitted for the green jacket. you know, i have two daughters that have kind of struggled with mental health themselves. so anytime you get a chance to support what a great cause this is, we all rally behind it. the group has to be the favorite, though. well we might be i gotta i gotta sharpen up my game here to help out the child mind institute as a relatively short history in the bay area. but with the need for its services increasing you couldn't ask for a better group to improve awareness and contribute to its healthy growth. one member of the champions league finals has been determined in european soccer liverpool at vila real in the second leg of the semi final series, 22 in the 74th minute, not a good decision by the villarreal goalie geronimo ruling who come out of net sorry. oh my neck gets past him has an easy goal for the game winner. liverpool wins this game also wins the aggregate score
