the navy this morning. >> it is. a pucukeural situation. the white house and secretary of defense told us last week that the president had directed "uss carl vinson" and the rest of its battle group towards north korea. a real show of american firepower. this raised fears by north korea and china that the u.s. might launch a pre-emptive strike against northa. president trump said we're sending an armada to the sea of japan. the vinson task force left singapore, the white house said, headed for korea. in fact, the navy said it was actually headed south, which is the wrong direction if you're trying to get to korea, taking parts in a prescheduled training exercise with australia. where it gets sticky is the white house is pointing fingers at the navy saying the navy misinformed the white house. the vinson is now headed, we're told, towards north korea. you know what a rorschach test is? you look at an ink blot.
5:47 am
this is a plit rorschach test. it depends on what you see, what side of the political fence you're on. either there was a huge victory for democrats in the special election in georgia last night, or the republicans came out with a big win. 30-year-old john ossoff, a democrat, almost won that special election last night in a republican district. had he gotten 50% of the vote, he would be the next congressman from georgia. but he got 48%, which means he'll run again against the top republican vote getter who only got 20%. they're going to face each other in june. it's a win for democrats because of that big vote, but it's a win for republicans because he didn't get the seat. and republicans split their vote amongst 11 candidates. they're unlikely to split it in june. the seat is likely to stay in republican hands. >> president trump signed a symbolic order to hire and buy american in cinosia, wisconsin,
5:48 am
tuesday. shortly thereafter, cal train got snarky on twitter. the trump administration cut off funding for electrification of caltrains. they said we want to hire 9,000 americans for american infrastructure, but someone is holding up the jobs. someone. can't figure out who thadwit be. >> scott will be examining all of the president's tweet, executive orders and speeches every morning. he'd like to hear from you. you can share your thoughts with scott on twitter. @scottmcgrew. >> it is 5:48 now. and warriors are back in action tonight, looking live at oracle arena where it's all quiet now ahead of game two of the first round playoff series against the blazers. right now, the ws lead the series 1-0, but there's trouble on the horizon. this is the reason why. two key players could be watching from the sidelines. kevin durant hurt his calf last
5:49 am
game, and shaun livingston hurt his finger in the team's win on sunday. both players missed practice yesterday. they're now listed as questionable for tonight's game. tonight's tip-off, by the way, is at 7:30. >> took 19 games to get kd healthy, and now he could be injured again. that's definitely something to keep an eye on. >> in the meantime, happening today, earth getting a pretty close encounter. kari hall was talking about this a few minutes ago. an asteroid as big as the rock of gibraltar is going to be passing earth at a safe distance. emphasis on safe. nasa says there's no way it could actually hit earth, but it's till going to fly close for an asteroid that size. >> kari said we could see it with binoculars, so vianey is polishing hers up. >> it's been cloudy in parts of the bay area and may be cloudy as you try to get out there and
5:50 am
view, but you may have a couple days to view it zooming by. we're looking at mostly clear conditions right now in san francisco. and as you step out the door, also some chilly temperatures. as we go throughout the morning, we're going to go from the mid to upper 40s into the 60s today. looking at today's high temperatures. 66 degrees in santa rosa. 68 in san jose and morgan hill, and san francisco up to 64 degrees. as we get a live look outside in san jose, beautiful sunrise, and you can tell it's all clear. and trying to figure out how to dress for today, don't forget the sunglasses. you will get a lot of sunshine, but it's chilly, so heavier jacket or a coat needed for at least the start of the day. then as we go into this afternoon, going to see a storm system farther to the north moving into the north bay. and this will also bring in a few more of those showers. as you head out to the oakland coliseum today at noon time, it will still be bright and sunny. the clouds still well to the north of you.
5:51 am
at noon time, we're going to see the temperatures in the low 60s into the upper 60s later today. and then for the warriors game at oracle arena, it will be cooler as we head into the evening. we'll go from 61 degrees down into the upper 50s by the time you leave the game, and notice the clouds start to roll in. we'll also see that as we go into the hour-by-hour forecast for the morning into the afternoon. a few spotty showers picked up in the north bay. elsewhere, dry until this evening and later on tonight, we'll start to see the rain becoming very scattered. this will not be a very significant system. not all of us will see it. definitely for the south bay, a very slight chance of seeing the showers. i don't think we'll see much of that or measure any rain. as we go into the forecast for tonight in san francisco, or for today, rather, in san francisco, a high of 64. looking at some more 60s in the forecast as we return to some drive weather for the next
5:52 am
several days. and the inland areas, look at those temperatures, in the upper 70s by friday. it's about to feel more like late spring rather than early spring. vianey, how are the roads this early morning? >> so far, we're still off to a pretty good start. overall, a wide look shows a little yellowing, but it's a pretty typical, easy morning commute. still a lot of people doing the spring break light traffic, but we're still seeing the trouble spot, westbound 580. typical slowing for this hour. may be a fender bender, but a look at the north bay drive times will also see slowing along westbound 37 from sonoma boulevard to lakeville highway. and the metering lights at the bay bridge toll plaza, they are on. the peninsula drive time not looking too bad. taking a live look right now at the to plaza. you can see people up and at it. i'm very grateful i don't have to ever be on this early this morning. back to you.
5:53 am
>> you're up really, really early instead. >> that is true. it's 5:52, and breaking news we're following this morning. former nfl player and convicted murderer aaron hernandez now found dead overnight. the details on his death just weeks after he was acquitted of a double murder. first, happening right now, 44 people have died after a bus goes down a gorge in india. officials say that bus went off the road, straight down into the river. there are only two survivors. plus, it could be more difficult to discipline police officers accused of lying in california. a southern california lawmaker wants to raise the standard of proof in cases where officers were accused offing. assemblyman of los angeles says current rules allow agencies to unfairly target police officers who simply made mistakes. we'll be back in two minutes.
5:54 am

5:58 am
jordan. she said all of those families should be welcomed here, but her top concern now is north korea. >> an administration that wants to kind of outdo a dictator who we know is unpredictable by having some tweet storm going back and forth, that's irresponsible and potentially very dangerous. >> senator harris is hosting a town hall on friday in los angeles where she's going to be taking questions from facebook. >> you can already buy clothes on amazon, but now, amazon may be moving into the fast fashion world. the company won a patent to build a manufacturing warhouse for on demand clothing. that would include textile printers and cutters and cameras to provide instant feedback on alterations. amazon applied for the patent in 2015. there's no guarantee it will move forward on the plan though. >> amazon clothing, sounding like it could be amazing. we'll have to see. >> at 6 cloox:00, you nee drier

6:00 am
couple days. this morning, it does start out dry, and let me show you the hour-by-hour forecast because we'll start to see sprinkles in the north bay. an increase in cloud cover for the afternoon. especially for sonoma and marin counties as well as napa county. and look at overnight, we start to see a quick moving round of some scattered showers moving through. and then it kind of breaks up as it moves elsewhere across the bay area. there may be one last round of some wet weather overnight. we'll talk about that, how much rain it brings coming up as we head over to vianey, now tracking the road conditions and your morning commute. >> yeah, kari, it looks like right now the maps aric looking pretty good until ten minutes ago. unfortunately, chp is reporting a crash on northbound 101, and it looks like a lane may be blocked. it looks like this may be a vehicle involved with a motorcycle. it looks like the rider may be down. hopefully, everybody is okay. we will keep a close eye, but seeing some of the backup along that area out there. the drive times right now in the south bay,
