san francisco. much of it caused by the tech explosion, it's the same now on the peninsula. tenants are told to leave and are facing higher rents. here's vic lee with the details. >> this family has lived in the park royal apartments six years. 73 units in this huge complex of six buildings are being renovated. tenants in phases have been given two months to leave. rents here are going up about $1,000. >> we cannot afford to go another place. this is getting too expensive for us. and over 70 families getting evicted this year. >> this is our home. we want to stay. this poster will hang on the balcony of the redwood city apartment his family is renting.
the owner is renovating and jacking up the rents. they have been given notice to leave their one bedroom, 2 bedroom apartment but they haven't found another one they can afford. >> we went to one place and $5,000 for the first month rent and deposit. >> can you afford that, your family? >> no, we cannot. >> the average rent in san mateo county, according to a recent survey, is about $2,700 a month and growing. housing activists said the skyrocketing rents are forcing people to move out of county. >> it isn't just affecting individual families, but also destabilizing the community. you think of an entire workforce going through this, what does that do to a community? >> a spokesman for the landlord. of the park royal apartment said they are helping tenants with their move and all have left on evictions. he said it's unfortunate, but not unfair. vic lee, abc7 news. >> lisa, how are the temperatures looking?
>> it has been cool. we will continue to stay strikes but it will be cooler than average for pretty much the entire week. we have that going for us with higher relative humidity. pretty good air quality and really minimal risk of high fire danger due to the weather that is pretty much green with us for this time of year. of course, we need more moisture out there. but we aren't looking at any offshore wind components or any high temperatures. so we are going to be on the cool side personal. a live doppler 7hd with the low clouds and fog. right now i want to take to you the atlantic where this is the first system of the season. it was a hurricane briefly and now it's tropical storm. it will bring one to two inches of rain to north and south carolina. the hurricane season starts june 1st. a little early. you see the rotation here but not causing much of a problem. isolated maybe three or four inches around north carolina
but otherwise it's quiet in the atlantic for now. we are looking at our coast. san carlos, good morning 54. low 50s in the city. 4 to 5-mile visibility at the coast. really no problems there. and it's cloudy into our east bay valleys. here's the golden gate bridge. you are looking at the low deck of clouds that will be with us throughout much of the day. temperatures only in the mid-50s at the coast. it will be a cool day here. and looking to low clouds and fog for much of next week, as well. really not going anywhere anytime soon. with the cloud cover it's milder this morning. anywhere from 6 degrees warmer in livermore to 11 degrees warmer, and that's despite some breezy winds at times up through the delta. marine layer made it over the east bay hills but not into the delta. it's clear there and we will have the mildest weather there. and still pretty pictures in the sierra nevada from thursday's system with the snow.
southwest winds blowing up to 15 by the delta. it will get breezier throughout the afternoon but right now it's quiet, flat on the bay. and emeryville look at the cloudy skies. cool to mild today. we will keep the forecast today into mother's day and a slight chance of rain coming our way by the end of the week. the atlanta and radar composite shows the area of low pressure that brought the snow well off into nevada. and for the bay area much of california quiet in its wake. high pressure sits well offshore. and the alignment. the high and the low allowing for the steady sea breeze for the weekend and into next week. there's a weak weather system that will enhance the cooler air, sliding down california today. so tomorrow may be just a few degrees cooler for mother's day. today look for 67 in fremont, 65 in oakland. 72 morgan hill. and you notice outside pretty breezy with temperatures in the afternoon. just in the upper 50s for the
6:00 game. here's a look at mother's day. quickly i want to show you how nice it will number the afternoon. sun comes up 6:05. mild for moms and 60s around the bay, 70s inland. you will notice the chance of rain next thursday and friday. but cool. >> if you are heading out for a mother's day brunch, grab the jacket? >> yeah. >> turning to sports, plenty of run support for simlins, who delivered six shutout innings for giants on orange night at&t park. plus can the warriors find their focus in memphis tonight. larry beil has those stories and more in our saturday morning sports report. good morning, everybody. the first month of casey mcgehee's giants career, not gone that well. he replaced the panda at third base and came in hitting .178. but a sign of hope when he faced his old team the mnarlins on orange friday. i can't wait to pick you have a suit like that. bottom of the second. mcgehee, we told you about the .178 average. but .313 with bases loaded.
that's his third career grand slam. that's 4-0 and plenty of run support for tim lincecum, who was dealing. swing and a miss by former giant mike morse. lincecum, six shutout innings. and the big boy, john carlos dancing. fans with the bases load today end the fifth and the giants win it 6-0. get your hot dogs here. a's ending their ten-game road trip in seattle. sunny gray came in 4-0 and struck out 9. on target to the 5-0. josh reddick is doing this. the guy with 32 homers back in 2012 and in the fifth a two-run blast. redick's fifth of the season a 3-1 game. what could go wrong? how about the bullpen? in the seventh, the double to robinson can no. brad miller scores and tied at three. they go to the 11th. dan otara on the mound and this is terrible. good night, game over, drive home safely. the m's win 4-3 in 11. >> the buzz word for the
warriors heading into game three in memphis is focus. it's all about focus. nothing like a sound beating on your home court to get your focus right. the warriors need draymond green to stay out of foul trouble and find their stroke. they need to calm down and play the way they did to get to 61 wins. >> you don't change who you are overnight. you have to do better what you already do. so that's the focus. and there's always a few things, maybe a play you add or maybe you change a defensive match-up or something. but that stuff is relatively minor. >> clippers and rockets, floyd mayweather, the $180 million man. i want my hundred back, floyd. cp3 came back to play but the coach's kid, 25 points in 23 minutes on 10 of 13 shooting. clips with the run to win 124-99 and take the two-one series lead. crazy finish bulls and calves.
tied at 96. derek rose, and the bank is open! rose goes for 30. he didn't call bank. he lucked out. chicago, 99-96 to take a 2-1 series lead and don't forget we have warriors and grizzlies 5:00 p.m. right here on abc7. hope to see you then. have a great weekend, everybody, and happy mother's day out there! i'm larry beil. >> with so many bay area sports franchises looking to move, one team said they are staying put. some great news for local hockey fans.
>> good news for sharks fans. team will remain at the shark tank for the next decade and possibly through 2014. any signed a lease extension at the sap center that will keep them playing home games there for 2025 and renewed annually for 15 years beyond that. it is called one of the loudest and most exciting arenas in professional hockey. and having been to a game, i can attest to that. >> sounds like fun. we are looking at low to mid-50s around the bay. a little drizzle at the coast. 55 cool in oakland, 67 in fremont and 70s we have to go way out to the east bay valleys. san jose barely there at 71. and for mother's day, a few degrees cooler with afternoon sun. mild inland cooler still for monday and tuesday. partly cloudy on wednesday.
a chance of showers again on thursday and friday. >> and the temperatures in the mid-60s down in santa cruz >> i know. it will be a cool one. >> lisa, thank you. thanks again for joining us on the abc7 is the day morning news. the news continues online, on twitter, face look and on all your mobile devices with our abc7 news app. as always, join the conversation at facebook.com/abc7news. abc7 news continues at 8:00 a.m. we will see you then.
