6:14 am
have problems for the east bay as well as new crash in the south bay we'll talk about. >> thank you very much. coming up on kf 14 on your tuesday. look at today's top stories. convicted boston marathon bomber enters a sentencing phase now of his trial today. the jury that convicted dzhokhar tsarnaev of murder will decide whether he should receive the death penalty or life in prison. a woman in redwood city was able to fight off a kidnapping. police are looking for two suspects. san jose city council will discuss drought measures. the city wants to declare 25% water reduction and limit outdoor watering. 6:14. big news if the fight against breast cancer this morning. a new test will find genetic markers and do it cheaper than ever before. >> scott mcgrew, those markers are not new but the price is. >> sure is. $250. not affordable for everyone. but we are getting there, sam. $250 is amazing considering tests can run into the thousand
6:15 am
of dollars. you just spit into a test trub at home. send it to help in burlingame and they tell you whether you carry the markers which are associated with a significantly higher risk of breast cancer. the brca markers became relatively household words when angelina jolie found she carried them. again, you've been able to test for these for some time. until now, you needed a hollywood budget to do it. this is the test that you get in the mail. you can buy them now from color genomics. this is a big disappointment for other google funded companies. they've been work og the same thing but the fda told them to stop because they essentially turned themselves into a medical device company. color learned from that and was able to get approval. the pressure is on for meyer this morning. she's been able to keep margins high by losing employees and

cutting costs but that's not what she wants to do and it's not why yahoo! hired her. but it is what investors seem to want. google will make changes to its mobile search today promoting websites that are easy to use on phones and tablets. lowering the search ranks of those sites that aren't. when you -- where you hit in the google rankings is really important. being number two gets you a fraction of numbers of visitors that number one does. so guys are calling today's move mobi mobilegeddon. >> that's right. where people try to keep up as well. thanks. >> sounds dramatic. thank you. what a roar of the crowd. 2-0 oracle arena rocking last night as warriors beat the pelicans 97-87. they now take a commanding two-games lead in the first round of the playoffs. >> the birds took a dive.

6:18 am
for today, weather story. temperatures mostly in the 50s to start. very mild out there this morning as we get into your afternoon. at lunchtime, low 60s just about everywhere. that's where you're going to stay for today. in san francisco, overcast skies. 70 degrees. meanwhi meanwhile, for you in the tri-valley, just about 70 degrees in the south bay. we're looking good to hit the 70s up in beautiful wine country. let's talk about our best chance for showers. i stopped that clock for you. today at 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. area, that's where we're going to see a little bit of active 2i rolling down the peninsula on the east shore, nothing heavy. watch what happens as i take you into late wednesday into thursday. and really i want to draw your attention to what we're expecting in tahoe. we could actually see some very strong thunderstorms fire off along the sierra nevada. keep that in mind if you're trying to get over to tahoe. this is a component of two different systems working together. this is what we're expecting. two competing systems. high pressure pulling up subtropical moisture from the
6:19 am
south. that's going to be working against an area of low pressure that's cold and dry. two competing air masses, equate to thunderstorms. and so look at all of this moisture. we need the rain. more importantly, we need the snowpack. not expecting a lot. it is mild out there. look at this. flash flooding. definitely a possibility along the spine of the sierra nevada. let me bring you back home here to the bay area and show you when we might get thunderstorms. we have a chance for today. a better chance for tomorrow. and then by thursday, we're actually expecting that activity. we could be tracking it for you right here on "today in the bay." i stopped that clock at 3:00 a.m. it does look like we're going to see some mountain thunderstorms at that point. so just want to keep you privied to everything that we could occur around here. by friday, 3:00 a.m., showers continue across the bay area. we take you to your sunday and monday and we keep that chance going. so we need the rain very much so at this point. our rainy season coming to a quick close. hey, this is what we are really
6:20 am
excited about. you want to look directly overhead through your wednesday and thursday. we're talking about the meteor shower. you're going to see lots of shooting stars if you head out there in the predawn hours. best location to view this is in the east shore. we are expecting marine layer out there as we head through the next couple of days. inland and east bay hills. best viewing. look to the hills. look to the east. here's where we're headed in thursday and friday. temperatures will stay steady. cooler for friday. and then by saturday into sunday, a mix of sun and clouds. showers returning. by sunday, monday, and tuesday of next week. we're going to keep that chance going. right now he's a big warriors fan. i know you've been keeping up to date what's going on when it comes to the warriors, mike i bet your excited right about now. >> i am. i'm tired because i was falling asleep despite the excitement of the last couple of seconds but i made it. so did the warriors. looking over here. we have the camera, see a lot brighter now. the car fire reported.
6:21 am
my buddy tim at the desk passed by when we talked about it. it is, again, not an issue as far as the last camera goes. swept the area. this smoke, don't worry. that's from a business. this is not anything on fire that shouldn't be on fire the rest of the roadway moves smoothly. look at the maps and we'll show you. in fact, south bay, 101 past that crash at mckee. slowing at the scene over on the shoulder. now, move you out because there's a big deal going southbound 880. union city jammed past dakota. dumbarton bridge. the first crash happened at mallory. both scenes are now fully off the right-hand shoulder. i should push it that way. traffic flows a little bit better now but there's already a big slowdown. that is a focus point for your morning commute. on the other side of the bay, san mateo bring and dumbarton bridge to the peninsula. 101 not yet seeing any slowing. 280 as normal moves nicely through that stretch. anywhere north of 92 moves well,
6:22 am
pretty predictably. highway 4, extra flow. couple of earlier crashes. upper east shore. there's your north bay, 101 smooth. down in toward the golden gate bridge. i will give you a look at the foster city side of the san mateo bridge. we talked about a lot more cars heading over there. we are getting a lot of volume. no problems on the span. the san mateo bridge of course a little slower than the dumbarton right now. back to you, guys. >> mike, thank you very much. 6:22. still ahead on "today in the bay," taking matters into his own hands. san jose top cop jumping into action to take down a suspect who is getting away.

6:31 am
so we're getting an update on what exactly is going to happen today. opening statements from the government, we don't know if the defense will do theirs now or they have the option to delay and we're hearing there will be witnesses and probably photos and video entered into evidence on this first day as the jury decides whether or not -- or whether he gets life or death. the jury that found dzhokhar tsarnaev guilty must now decide whether he lives or dies. >> i want the death penalty. he stootd there five minutes. he saw so many people. he could have walk away but he chose not to. >> not everyone in boston agrees. >> it doesn't seem to deter anybody from doing what they're going to do. >> the parents of 8-year-old martin richard are asking federal prosecutors to spare tsarnaev's life. in a statement they said, the continued pursuit of that punishment, the death penalty, could bring years of appeals and prolong reliving the most painful day of our lives. >> i do believe he should be held accountable. so whatever they is, i believe
6:32 am
that the true judgment comes after he dies anyways. >> many survivors could be dad to testify. >> i think their point of view and their perspective should be taken into account by the jury and by the feds. >> polls show a slight majority here against the death penalty. prosecutors balancing the community's opinions with the mandate to punish terror are unlikely to take the death penalty off the table. now it's tough to get the death penalty in a federal case like this. one juror could make the difference. they've been death penalty crawl qualified but if one decides it's not warranted in this case then he gets life in prison behind bars without parole. >> wow, so much emotion behind it as well for the victim's families. thank you very much, tracie. >> sure. ride now authorities have arrested the captain and a crew member aboard a boat that capsized in the mediterranean killing as many as 900 people. this happened just off the coast of tripoli on sunday. that boat was carrying migrants

6:34 am
we have two competing air masses right now and so it's actually very unstable out there in terms of our atmosphere. as we get into the next couple of days we're going to track this for you. let me show you the weather headlines and give you an idea of what to expect. cloudy with pockets of drizzle for today. getting into tomorrow. touch warmer. more sunshine. plans and then as we head throughout your all important weekend, unsettled weather will continue. so i'm going to show you your weekend forecast coming up in my next report. right now though you've got to work for the weekend and can help get you there on time. >> a lot of people going to work. this is oakland by the coliseum. a lot of folks worked it out last night. warriors, i mean. working over here northbound. tail lights move smoothly. southbound. that's where you have a problem. not at the coliseum. not until you get to 238 where you have your traditional slowing through hayward. look, speed sensors turn from orange to red south of whipple and down toward union city. jammed solid to thornton for the
6:35 am
second of two crashes occurred. first one one farther south that set things off. very slow drive for the nimitz down toward the dumbarton bridge. both of these crash rest now over on the right shoulder. still a distraction. you see thornton was the latest to cause that backup. south of fremont, you're fine into the south bay or northbound routes are your slower drive. look at san jose, 101 from capital expressway and the earlier crash at mckee out of the roadway. 87. slows a bit. volume just playing a factor. it's tuesday. we expect a good volume of traffic through the area. not for another few minutes kicking into san jose. let me give you a look at the other rest of the bay as we zoom up north to -- north of the san mateo bridge and you have a slower drive now to the upper east shore but nothing dramatic. highway four had a sticky point through bay point but things are clear now heading over towards concord. novato in towards san rafael. at speed down toward the golden gate bridge and 101 this time
6:36 am
from the peninsula. we kipd over that with the map because it's moving very smoothly. i want to report you're getting more traffic off of 92 so san mateo will see slowing at 101. >> you make it sound positive. >> it is positive because i made it to work already. >> i cannot believe you watched the warriors game last night. >> i did. >> what time did it end? >> i don't know. i couldn't see the clock clearly. >> they won. >> luke my dad, i was watching with my eyes closed. >> you still delivers a mean traffic report. thank you. >> thank you. markets have been open for a few minutes. >> let's check the numbers with scott mccrew. >> i watched about the first four minutes and went to bed. let's check the markets out in the nyse. dow industrials up 46 points. 1879. building on a rally we saw yesterday that brought us back over 18k and making up to a lot of friday's losses. yahoo! reports its profits today on monday the company said i'd renegotiated that famous contract with microsoft that allowed microsoft to provide
