to let get past you. not too hot, no need for the ac, even out in livermore. we're only going to need 77 degrees and you probably had to run it at 85. 79 degrees in gilroy. you probably had to run it if you're kind of a weakling like myself. i don't like it too hot. he doesn't either. good morning to you, mike inouye. >> good morning. with all of the weather we always report around the country, always makes me realize i can complain but gosh, we got it really good here. looking toward the bay bridge. you've got it good there as well. because there is no backup and no metering lights. just getting started. start building out of the maze, the east shore freeway fine. even seeb 24 is moving smoothly so that single bore. coming off of the benicia bridge one hit-and-run crash. one left the scene, so if you saw anything over the last few minutes and you are home now, go ahead and give chp a call. we may still have paperwork as

meantime we're waiting for clarity out of washington as to whether there is going to be a shutdown one week from today. this morning we're going to get data on home prices, the index, and consumer confidence as well. we'll have the dow starting at 15,401, the nasdaq at 3765, after slipping 9. and burger king, well, they are trying to make you feel less guilty if you want to have some french fries. the fast food chain is launching crinkle cut fries that it says has 20% fewer calories than regular fries. a small order of its new satisfries 270 calories, the credit is is a new batter that doesn't absorb as much oil. a small $1.89 versus $1.59 for regular. if the math is correct that's almost 20% more to get 20% less. >> that's pretty good tag line. bertha coombs, thank you.
i just hope they taste good so we have satisfraction. >> making me hungry this morning. we've got a good looking day shaping up. 5:17. it's one of those days i'm going to point this out, we are going to see some cooler weather around the corner. looks like it's going to stick around for some time. enjoy the upper 70s, not too hot, not too cold later on. this morning especially getting the little ones ready for school packing up the lunch. maybe enjoying a cup of joe, all i can tell you is it's comfortable out there. but you probably need a sweater for now, something you can peel off later on as the temperatures are going to be really comfortable. we have to deal with wind. there will be a bit of a windchill factor and we've got this area of low pressure that's kicking up our first large swells of the season. surf's up in santa cruz, along
half moon bay, pacifica, ocean beach. just remember, along with that high surf comes very dangerous rip currents so you want to take it easy out there, swim with a buddy, swim at a guarded beach. a lot of us know that water is cold. we head throughout day, much cooler than yesterday. we're not going to see much action in terms of precipitation until we hit tomorrow. nice and clear all the way through about 10:00 p.m. then i stop the clock, into tomorrow afternoon, between about 3:00 and 4:00. we expect a little bit of light shower activity from concord up to fairfield. you have the chance in santa rosa, don't think we'll see much south of the golden gate bridge or the bay bridge. our chances slim. don't get caught under the drizzle or the rain and say she didn't tell me about it. 77 degrees in livermore. 75 in santa teresa. 79 in gilroy and 75 degrees in los gatos. these are the kind of numbers
that we yearn for when we do hit the winter months and of course as you know around here we're transitioning into fall. it starts to get cool pretty quickly so keep in mind it's going to be nice but our beautiful days, they are numbered at this point. temperatures look like this. the upper 70s for today, mid 70s tomorrow. thursday into friday, mike's favorite, the 80s come on back and then saturday into sunday a little warm but you can hit the beach. on saturday, 91 degrees looking good. also the swells decrease. >> we're working with the 65s. for the most part. we'll show you where they are coming down as far as the speeds right here as you might expect. westbound 580 out of the altamont pass, the merge off 205 and 580, that blends with traffic and causes our average speed to come down as you head into the tri-valley. averages at 45 for the bulk of the slowing through one construction zone that is westbound 580, the construction eastbound because we don't typically have a lot of traffic, that's what you see coming
toward us. the taillights i know it's black and white but still this is from our caltrans camera. a smooth flow. by the time you get to the dublin interchange, you hit here at 680 no problems down through pleasanton. 84 starting to show that slowdown around and a typical pattern for the tri-valley. we'll see how things are shaping up into the south bay for fremont. a nice smooth flow coming toward me. continuing down toward mission boulevard. the south bay itself on the maps shows you no problem. your typical build a little bit for 101 as you pass by 680 and will bog down the next 25 minutes, the commute about 6:20. construction remains but not a major concern. a live look outside we'll see how things are for the peninsula. the volume builds but you have to limit for 101 and 280.
back to you. >> thank you, mike. 5:20. a pg&e shareholder is suing rather suing pg&e management claiming the company put profit over safety. the woman has been a shareholder more than 20 years. the suit alleges that pg&e's corporate culture helped lead to the san bruno explosion. she says she's filing the suit on behalf of all shareholders. the suit alleges that management diverted money for pipe line safety and used it for things like corporate bonuses instead. a spokesperson says the utility is looking into these allegations. >> 5:21. fear can be a powerful motivator, maybe what helped president obama kick his smoking habit. cnn caught a conversation between the president and a u.n. official in new york city yesterday. president obama told the official he has not touched a cigarette in about six years, the president reportedly added that's because i'm scared of my wife. the president is in new york for

victims in all on university avenue between bell street and runnymeade. bob, investigators are now saying they have doubts about the victim's story? >> reporter: they believe that the victims were reluctant in telling them the truth so they are trying to figure out was this gang related, was this possibly road rage or was it something else. again, epa detectives trying to figure that out. this started before 1:30 this morning, marla, when police received a 911 call from three people 18 red subcompact driving down university. they were calling to say they were being followed closely by two to three people 18 white camry with tinted windows. the people are flashing the high beams at them. as police were heading out to respond they heard at least six gun shots. then the shot spotter indicated those happened on university of michigan about a quarter mile from the police station. police find this red car with the rear window shattered a few

future home of the 49ers. it was revealed the team is about 5,000 spots short and that led to speculation that the city will relocate some youth soccer fields and pave them over to make up the difference. local soccer leagues are unhappy and so are environmentalists. if the soccer fields are moved they will likely be placed in a nearby nature preserve which would require wiping out thousands of plants and trees. >> call them the comeback kid. team oracle to race again. race 17 and if needed, 18, are slated for today after oracle won its fifth consecutive race against team new zealand. both have eight wins. today's race would have been a winner take all finale but team usa was docked two points before the competition, that means the americans still need three more
