from robberies. this comes after a mob of teenagers hopped the fares, jumped on the station and robs passengers. >> a b.a.r.t. santa clara expansion is ahead of schedule because of the drought. california was dry for five straight years, construction crews took advantage of the extra sunshine. they were able to work longer and more consistently. on the new b.a.r.t. stations in san jose and milpitas without getting delays by wet weather. because of this, they may be able to open those stations six month early, but then the train tracks still need to be tested. any issues could delay the opening curlily slated for december. >> if there's one tiny detail that can't be verified, we need to stop, figure out what the problem is, fix it, go back, and test the whole system genl. >> the milpitas station will have 1200 parking stations and potentially 120 charging stations for electric vehicles. >> the 49ers and raiders are looking to the future. the nfl draft will continue with round two of picks.

the energy conscious people among us say small actions can add up to something... humongous. a little thing here. a little thing there. starts to feel like a badge maybe millions can wear. who are all these caretakers, advocates too? turns out, it's californians it's me and it's you. don't stop now, it's easy to add to the routine. join energy upgrade california and do your thing.
good friday morning. i'm landon dowdy at cnbc headquarters. here's today's top business headlines. wall street could be followed by earnings reports today. stocks ending mostly flat yesterday. the nasdaq closed at a record high. the dow is set for its best record of the year. you want to look for the first
report that may show that the economy slowed this winter. the dow rising six points to 20,981. the nasdaq up 23. also watch shares of amazon and alphabet, the parent company of google, today. they both reported much better than expected earnings last night. amazon was boosted by its cloud and retail business as well as amazon prime members. the stock hit an all-time high in extended trading. alp alphabet showing a surge in earnings as its business continues to grow at an extraordinary rate, and problems such as the advertiser boycott of youtube had little effect. >> and starbucks says stay tuned. the unicorn frappuccino drove significant customer traffic to its stores. in fact, starbucks ceo saying the company will launch at least one new drink into happy hour this year that is going to be as good as the unicorn or even

like the other. one of these things doesn't have kid. >> exactly. that's the reason why. we had take your kids to work yesterday. i have so much respect for what you all go through every day. it's fun to play with them, but you have to take them home and take care of them. >> and feed them. >> college down the road, all sorts of things to worry about. >> stressing me out now. >> it's friday. let's ease into this weekend and hopefully we'll be able to get a little sleep here. we are going to have some great weather, and we're starting out with some clear skies with a live view of san francisco right now. and it's been a cool start. it's 51 degrees now in morgan hill. 50 degrees in palo alto and san francisco. and 46 degrees again this morning in napa with highs today reaching into the mid to upper 70s. it's going to be even warmer than yesterday. but once that onshore flow kicks in, it's going to start to cool down quite quickly as we go into this evening. we're up to 75 degrees in palo
alto. oakland, 74. 79 in napa and santa rosa, and san francisco looking at a high today of skathd degrees. it will also be fairly windy. we start out with those breezes coming in from the north. at about 10 to 15 miles per hour. but it does get stronger as we go through the day. especially right there along the coastline. san francisco, sustained winds at 23 miles per hour as we head through the evening commute. and then for the inland areas, wind speeds at 15 to 20 miles per hour. this is as we transition from cooler to warmer weather. and it will be a warm afternoon, so as we get a look at how to dress for today, bringing it into the closet, definitely have a hat to keep the hair all together with those breezy winds. and some short sleeves for the cooler temperatures -- for the warmer temperatures we will feel today. if you're heading to russian river valley for the weekend, it's going to be a nice one. up to 79 degrees tomorrow. 78 degrees on sunday. and then as we get ready to head back to work on monday, seeing high temperatures in the lower 80s.
in san francisco, we're looking at upper 60s today, up to 68 degrees. then 70s by the end of next week. we have mid 70s in san francisco, the inlnchd areas will be much warmer. almost 90 degrees by the middle of next week. get ready, summer is coming in a snap. and as you head out the door, you're avoiding what's happening now in the south bay. >> i hope you avoid it. good morning, folks. speed senseers around the bay look great. we take you to the south bay, and again, yes, still tracking that crash affecting only the hillsdale off-ramp from northbound 101. here's southbound 17. the transition onto 85, there's a ladder reported in the lane. chp warned us about it. folks can avoid that one portion of one lane here in the south bay. i want to show you our waze system and show you something cool. even though traffic is light, let's say you're going from castro valley over toward palo alto. some folks might want to immediately gets across the san mateo bridge.
but let me give good pr to dumbarton because it's the quicker route and it helps you about a 10 or 11 minutes right now. that's an amazing difference from what is seemingly a very similar route. you can choose waze to help you make your decisions before you leave and help choose your route. you go to your profile, make sure you select your team, nbc bay area wazers. that way, you can share with the entire community watching the same show you are right now. back to you. >> there you go. thanks so much. at 4:50 right now, equal pay has no say. why san francisco federal court rules employers can legally pay women less than men for the same work. what it's based on coming up. first, though, happening now. later today, president trump is expected to sign an executive order that would eventually open up millions of coastal acres to off shore oil and gas drilling. that order is one more step in the president's step to
with. a bay area woman turned to our investigative unit after discoveri imagine being secretly recorded by someone you work with. a bay area woman turned to our investigative unit after discovering a hidden camera in the restroom. >> there's a growing number of women being victimized by these video voyeurs, sometimes with little recourse afterwards. here's vicky nguyen. >> while these crimes are on the rise, we found peeping toms only served six months to a year for secretly recording lewd video with a hidden camera.
it's considered a misdemeanor unless the pervert is a repeat offender. our investigation after a woman and at least one other worker were recorded in the ladies room. she was surprised and disappointed by the fremont police response. they only interviewed the vic m victims. they said they're watching the restrooms for suspicious activity. we learned last year, prosecutors charged peeping toms in 29 cases, cases that were practically nonexistent before these cameras got so good, small, and cheap. investigators have seen cameras hidden in restroom trash cans, even people recording their room mates. you can watch our fool report and hear fremont police explain whey they didn't investigate further today at 6:00 p.m. or go to nbcbayarea.com/weinvestigate. >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit, you see the
number, 888-996-tips. you can also sent an e-mail. >> looking ahead on your schedule, this monday is may day, and it's a day where people across the globe march for workers lights. >> it's a pretty big deal here in the bay area as well. this year, no exception. in san francisco, may day organizers are saying google and other companies will not punish workers who want to join the rally. they're held to show support for labor rights, but this year, demonstrators will also protest president trump's policies. >> they have been affecting a variety of us, and the people that are affected comet from different backgrounds. whether you're a top engineer or a subcontracted worker, you're still affected by the policies coming. >> san jose's march will begin at the mexican heritage plaza near king road. >> california says its sea levels may not just be rising. they're rising higher than we thought. on wednesday, the ocean
protection council revised the projections to help them prepare for climate change. by 2100, the ocean may rise at least a foot, but the number could go up to ten feet depending on how fast the ice caps melt. rising sea could threaten low lying communities. >> a setback for equal pay advocates on the ninth circuit court of appeals. the court ruled employers can legally pay women less than men for the same work. the new decision cited a 1982 ruling saying it is allowed so long as it's applied reasonably and was justified by business poli policy. >> seems crazy for 2017. >> there's always so many fun things to do in the bay yare a. a robot contest we heard about yesterday, but also a good opportunity to get outside. >> especially for the giants game this evening at at&t park.
our temperatures will be in the lower 60s. a lot of sunshine, and we'll dip back into the upper 50. make sure you're dressed with layers. it will be windy too. we'll look at the rest of the bay area forecast for the weekend on the other side of the break. and a steady drive right here past the camera near the oakland coliseum and the arena. we're looking at the b.a.r.t. line. a delay developing. not just flashing lights. we'll check on that as well. up next, a live report from martinez where a standoff between this shooting suspect and police continues at this hour. the entire ordeal began yesterday afternoon. you're watching today in the bay. trt=3
