improved. >> 5:02. san jose's medical marijuana collectives may have to funnel more money to the city. today, city leaders will consider raising taxes for the controversial business. marla tellez joins us with how much more collectives could have to pony up. good morning. >> reporter: laura, good morning. we're talking a 3% tax increase for these pot clubs, san jose mayor chuck reed wants the council to raise the tax on medical marijuana collectives from 7% to 10%, but there is a reason for it. he says the tax would pay for a citywide election on whether to repeal those newly enacted pot regulations. perhaps you'll recall in september the city council approved new rules that it would force most pot clubs to close. those limit the number of clubs in the city to ten. currently there are more than 100 and pot advocates gathered signatures to get a referendum
5:04 am
to repeal the rules. the mayor says if you want an election you have to pay for it, that's why he wants this tax. most people we spoke to agree with the mayor. >> i think it would be all right. i agree with the state of our economy and our debt, we would need something like that to get us through. >> if they did raise the tax it's better than getting rid of the pot clubs. right? so that's one way to look at it. i'm not into raising taxes on anything. >> mayor reed estimates an election would cost about $1 million. he points out that the tax increase would be a temporary one. the city council is going to consider this issue at a 1:30 meeting here at city hall. >> thanks, marla. >> the state auditors are digging through records in alameda county is not faring too

5:06 am
rain if any today in the north bay. but hey, any promise of precipitation because it's been so dry is something that we're monitoring closely. this morning i do think we're going to get a little shower activity. what i'm waiting for is this cute off low to break off. right now it's still pretty much out here in the pacific. i think it's going to move to the east. it depends where the center ends up. how much rain we get and whether the showers slide to the golden gate bridge. it does not look very promising for the showers to drift to the south. i think sonoma county will get a little and maybe marin. you can see the showers coming down now north of eureka are light, breaking apart as they move on shore. we don't have a great rain chance. what will happen is on shore snow will strengthen. we expect thick fog to develop. through probably 6:00 to 8:00 this morning, 44 in hayward. it's cold out there.
5:07 am

5:13 am
and as high pressure moves in it will compress whatever moisture we pick up. i'm expecting thick fog. by thursday, though, a crisp clear start with offshore flow back in effect. that means we'll see a warming trend again. as you can see here, area of low pressure is just about to break off here from the jet stream. this is going to continue to move to the south as we head throughout day. and we don't know whether or not this core of low pressure is going to make its way on shore. it doesn't look likely for that. i think the core is going to stay offshore, sidle down the coast and maybe some of the outer bands of rain will push into places like marin and sonoma at the coast. what will happen is on shore flow will increase. we expect more fog. more after sea breeze today. 62 degrees in los gatos. 62 in redwood city. that tends to clean out the air mass. 59 in san francisco, 63 in gilroy, and about 61 degrees in livermore. good morning to you out there in the tri-valley. throughout the week really not much changes until we head

5:36 am
two. nothing heavy. i don't think we're going to measure anything. enough moisture will come through to purify our air quality. today, cool start, tomorrow, a cloudy start with that additional moisture making way to a crisp and clear afternoon. we're going to get that flow back in effect. and that means we could be breaking temperature records again so there is more of a warm-up on the way. then maybe a little more shower activity. first, mike, any improve snmt >> you know, at least we have more information regarding this head-on collision on 92 west of 280 as you head over to half moon bay. both directions of 92 are -- sorry, both lanes of westbound 92 are currently closed. but the chp has arrived. the update, we'll sort it out. they hope to have the cars moved off of the roadways shortly which to me mean there is are no life threatening injuries, at least no one in the cars so they can move those. we have more crews heading to

5:43 am
250,000, that includes mostly registered republicans. but they have a huge amount of registered voters here who are undeclared, independent, who can vote in either primary. you can sign up in this state on the spot on election day, so that's a bit of a wild card. but they expect 250,000. if that's the case, it would be bigger than the last two presidential elections here. >> interesting to see. thank you very much, tracie, for the latest. >> guess you can say bravery comes in all shapes and ages. a 3-year-old from new zealand went eye to eye with the king of the jungles. take a look at this home video shot by her parents, the girl up against the glass checking out the lion. the only thing separating them is the glass. all of a sudden the lion decides get out of my face. she's like hey, no sweat. i'm in fort the long haul. the lion has a history of mood swings. the little girl who turns 4 next month says guess what, i want to
