the stinging sunshine, those rays are stronger than you think. there are experts casting doubt on a phrase made in the shade. >> reporter: on a hot, summer day, you might be tempted to skip the sunscreen and head for the shade instead. >> if you had to guess, where would you get more protection, the shade or sunscreen? >> the shade. i'm guessing. >> probably sunscreen. that's just a wild guess. >> reporter: cancer researchers in australia compared the spf protection from sunscreen to the spf protection you get in shady spots under trees and umbrellas. the average umbrella provided an spf of 3 to 10. doctors recommend sunscreen with an spf of at least 15. >> it's a good idea to stay under the canopy, stay in the shade. but sunscreen would be highly recommended. >> what about wearing a hat? >> i guess it would depend on the type of hat and what it's made out of.
4:47 am
>> is it okay to cover your head instead of putting sunscreen on your face? >> definitely not. it's not a substitute for sunscreen. >> even a wide-brimmed hat gets spf protection of only about 5 on your nose. >> i'm surprised. >> reporter: how do the sun rays get around the brim of that hat or a big umbrella? it turns out, even undercover you are getting indirect light. that indirect light is worse if you're sitting on concrete or even in a swimming pool. those reflective surfaces cut down on the effectiveness of a hat or anything that is shading you from above. even sitting in your car. the reflected light can get you. doctors often see patients with sun damage that is worse on the left side of their face because it's closest to the driver's side of the window. >> somebody who drive force a living is definitely more likely to get a lot of sun exposure, and probably should be wearing sunscreen even though they're riding in the car all day.
4:48 am
>> while the shade may cool you down, the coolest thing for skin is the protection, the cover has comes in a bottle. cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. dermatologists say if you're going to be out in the sun all day, where an spf of 30 or higher and be sure to reapply every few hours. news for your bottom line. the dow will open below the 10,000 mark in a few hours. mary thompson is live at cnbc's headquarters. could we end the week on an up note? >> dell offered $1.8 billion for 3par. this suggests big tech firms are willing to be aggressive to get a foothold in new businesses. if the economy is weak t is not impacting tiffany's. they had a 19% jump in second

quarter profits. ahead of the open on wall street, futures are pointing to a higher open following yesterday's decline. yesterday, of course, stocks dropping below the 10,000 mark led by tech shares. concerns about the economy have been keeping pressure on the dow. today investors are likely to get confirmation that it is slowing. economists forecasting second quarter growth will be revised downward to a pace of 1.4% from the first estimate of 2.4% growth. in a little over two hours, ben bernanke delivers a major speech on the economy where he is expected to acknowledge it is struggling. investors will be listening in for plans on a change in direction. >> thank you very much. gruber will now be on a new anything. ♪ mcgruber >> the saturday night live cast
4:50 am
member and lafayette native says he won't return for season 36. instead he's on to new opportunities. he worked on snl for eight seasons, turning his role into mcgruber into a feature film this past may. he said he is grateful for lauren michaels fob having the chance to be on snl. >> you will get more than reviews on yelp. daily deals will be on there. yelp rolled out its first deal in san diego yesterday for a yoga class bundle. daily deals for san francisco and new york will be coming in the next few weeks. it's 4:50 now. a lot of people like that hot yoga. let's see if maybe you can just go outside. >> we had that tuesday and wednesday. yesterday and today the trend will be the cooling temperatures. maybe there will be a yelp deal on some ski tickets coming up. wait until you see the forecast coming up this weekend. san francisco, 58. patchy low clouds. not quite as much in the way of
4:51 am
low clouds on the coast like we had yesterday morning. 59 in san jose. oakland, 61, southwest wind at 9 miles per hour. some of our weather headlines today, we have the patchy low clouds, mild temperatures. i want to focus in on the weekend. we will see continued cooling. increasing clouds during the day on saturday. not only a chance of rain in the sierra but snow perhaps above 8,000 feet saturday night into sunday. for the bay area, there's a chance of showers across the north bay hill tops. air quality just fine today. should be just fine for the weekend as well. it's a system here dropping out of the gulf of alaska, which is a fall-like system for us. i know it's august. going through the next 24 hours, the cool conditions today again with highs inland. mainly 70s to maybe low 80s inland. 60s out on the coast. for the weekend, as this system drops in, we'll have a good bit of rain and showers. for the north bay, especially north of sonoma county, we may see a few scattered showers.
4:52 am
if you're traveling to the high country, be prepared for big changes. showers saturday afternoon. sunday, rain, thunder and some high elevation snow for the sierra to wrap up the weekend. around the bay area, today's highs inline. mainly 70s for the inner bay. 60s for san francisco. east bay looking at temperatures in the 80s around concord. areas north of sonoma, keep a close eye on the radar and this weekend for saturday night into sunday, you may see summer showers for the far north bay. then temperatures more like summer early next week after a cool and breezy weekend. back to you. >> thank you very much. we want to check the morning commute. >> two sig-alerts on highway 101, the first on the peninsula, v viewers going north through palo alto the fast lane should be

cleared in the next five minutes. that's what we are hearing from chp. meanwhile, there's no major slowing through the area because there's a light volume of traffic being just before 5:00 a.m. and friday where we see a later shift to the commute as more folks head to the office later and leave earlier. no slowing here or for 280. we did see the slowing show up on 237 westbound, that should clear up. i'll follow that for the next ten minutes. the rest of the south bay moving smoothly. way further south, for folks coming into the area, this is the concern. if you are expecting anybody coming up through aromas, san juan batista, they will have an issue because northbound 101 has been closed since midnight. a deadly accident there involving a big rig into the center divide. folks are being rerouted from 156 to highway 25, about a 20-mile reroute. you from expecting someone coming up through the area, we don't know when highway 101 will reopen in the northbound
4:54 am
direction. if you are heading south out of the area, you are clear throughout that portion. 101 south you are okay heading out of this area. i will look at the bay bridge. we are often talking about friday light. that's what we are seeing again. it's early in the commute. we expect a later build. about 10:30, 11:00 is when we will see this build. we have seen heavier volume throughout the east bay as folks have returned from summer vacation and gotten back to school. back to you. >> hawe have a huge medical discovery in the fight against hiv to tell you about. after 20 years of researching hiv, scientists found drugs to treat one deadly disease may fight off another. those drugs are currently used to treat cancer. when combined in lab experiments, researchers say they force the virus to mutate at a much higher rate and kill
