sfo. today in the bay continues right now. >> and a good monday morning. we hope you had a great weekend and we're glad you're with us here on this monday. i'm sam brock. >> i'm kris sanchez in for laura garcia-cannon. today, we were all in different spots around the bay area this weekend. some of us were much cooler than others. you were in santa cruz, you were cool. >> it barely made it to 60 yesterday. >> lucky. >> it was so cool, as the fog rolled by all day long. so it's been all about where you are, and then look at these temperatures today. 95 in livermore. 62 in half moon bay. we will see more of this wide range in temperatures as we go into the next couple days, and i'll talk about that coming up. mike says there's delays in the tri-valley. >> of course, a backup at the bay bridge toll plaza. that's where the metering lights are on, and light down the east shore freeway, but building. a crash between sunol boulevard, i would say closer to cougman by
the speed sensors. chp says it may take a half hour to clear that and that would be bad for the ln interchange. back to you. >> mike, thank you very much. >> breaking news to get to. police in san francisco right now still investigating a home invasion that led to a police shooting. >> this happened in the city's bay view neighborhood, and within the last two hours, police called off the search for suspects. >> pete suratos has been following all the developments for us since we came on the air at 4:30. he joins us to bring us up to speed on the investigation. what's the latest? >> good morning to you, sam and kris. we moved to the location where the home invasion took place on the 2100 block of quesada avenue. we're going to show you, this is the home we believe the home invasion took place because we have seen police moving in and out of it in the past half hour since we have been. we can report according to san francisco police, they detained at least one suspect, but they
called off the ground search for the others. we'll show you video from the scene from overnight, and according to police, this home invasion took place roughly around 11:00 p.m. and when they showed up, they perimetered off the area where we're standing and several suspects tried to get away through the back of the home, jumping over fences and into backyards. it's at this point one of the suspects shoots at officers and an officer returns fire. there are no injuries to report to either party, but police tell us it was a very close call. >> no suspects were shot. sorry if i didn't make that clear. at this time, there are no known injuries, luckily, as a result of the exchange of gunfire. from what i hear, though, it was very harrowing. very, very close call for the officers that were in the backyard. >> police say this appears to be a targeted home invasion, and the reason they called off the search is they're pretty sure the suspects were able to get out of the area, but there's still a search for suspects on the ground. if you have any information to
help out with this case, contact police. we're live in san francisco, pete suratos, for today in the bay. >> all right, pete, thank you very much. that's what's happening here at home. we go abroad now. a live look from israel where president trump is continuing his first overseas tour since taking office. >> he traveled from saudi arabia to israel where he's mixing diplomacy with tourism. jay gray is live with what we can expect throughout the course of day. >> good morning. yeah, this is the second stop president trump's nine-day overseas tour. right now, he's behind these walls here around jerusalem's old city touring some of the historic holy sights there. he will meet with both israeli and palestinian leaders in his two days here. air force one on the ground in tel aviv. president trump greeted by benjamin netanyahu before making a brief chopper ride to jerusalem. 10,000 israeli officers will be
a part of the security detail as the president begins the second leg of his trip later this morning in jerusalem. the normally crowded old city will be locked down as mr. trump and first lady melania tour the church of the holy septalker. it will come between meetings between benjamin netanyahu and the president ritalin. president trump's first overseas trip began in saudi arabia. draped in modern ceremonies and traditional celebration, but defined by his sunday address to the leaders of more than 50 muslim nations across the region, urging them to unite in the global fight against terror. >> drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this earth. >> the president stepping back from the rhetoric of his campaign where he lashed out against islam. instead offering to be a partner in what he calls not a fight between religions but a battle between good and evil. >> and that visit, we reached
historic agreements to pursue greater and greater cooperation in the fight against terrorism and its evil ideology. >> the fight against terror, one of the issues that president trump is expected to discuss during his time in israel. >> president trump will close out his stay here tomorrow. he'll visit the west bank and bethlehem he'll see holy sites there and spend time with mahmoud abbas. that's the latest here live in jerusalem. back to you. >> all right, jay. thank you very much for that report. and stay with nbc bay area for continuing coverage of the president's first foreign trip. lester holt will anchor live from jerusalem tonight, that's at 5:30. >> an unruly passenger forcing a united flight from shanghai to newark to make an unexpected pitd stop at sfo this weekend. >> lock him up!
>> united says the man tried to take another passenger's seat as they were still boarding in shanghai. that's what started all of this. he allegedly refused to move and grew, according to people there, increasingly disruptive. everybody had to deplane while local law enforcement dealt with that matter. the flight had to stop over in san francisco as a result to change out the crews. as you can see, the man is wearing a bright red make america great again hat, hence the shouts as he was getting off the plane, lock him up. >> bay area leaders are getting public input on the region's long range transportation plan. the ntc and association of bay area governments will host two meetings today. one in santa rosa, one in san jose. each meeting is designed to generate feedback on the draft plan called plan bay area 2040. a long term integrated transportation and land use plan that brings in all nine bay area counties. >> with the win tonight in san antonio, the warriors can once again punch their ticket to the
fin finals. >> that didn't take long, because they haven't lost a single game yet. the scenario looking very good for the ws and kevin durant. they have a commanding 3-0 lead over the spurs. they have not lost wurns in the latest playoff run. should fans worry about them getting complacent with an embarrassment of winning. klay thompson said they won't be caught off guard looking ahead. >> right now, we're worried about a really good spurs team. they won 60 games in the regular season. been great this playoffs. we're not looking to the finals just yet. >> they're focused. they have king james awaiting them. the ws on a collision course, it looks like, with cleveland, although the celtics put a road bump in that. avery bradley sinking a three pointer, giving the celts a surprising win over the cavaliers. the cavs now lead the finals two games to one. >> we're coming up on 6:08 on this monday morning. and it's a mild start on what will be another hot day.
we're at 57 degrees right now in the peninsula. 49 degrees, and you can see that fog as we look at san francisco this morning. also low clouds over the north bay. it's 49 degrees there as you get ready to head out. then look at these highs, again today, very hot inland. up to 95 in the tri-valley. the peninsula, 85. and 88 in the south bay. we'll also see 90s in the north bay. san francisco will be much cooler. and nice 75 degrees. we'll take a look at the temperature trend for evergreen in about four. mike has a new crash in san jose. >> unfortunately, because we have so many traffic cameras, we're able to find the effects. north 101 right here, it was south 101 onto north 680 where seconds ago we had traffic backed up. there was a quick traffic break. a car hit one of the side walls there. fortunately did not go off the edge. looks like it might have cleared. we'll show you where that was in the south bay. counter commute down here, so no problem for south 101 or 680.
we're tracking the ripple throughout the area in the next few minutes. we have this which will continue for a few minutes, at least. a tad bit heading down through the tri-valley. highway 84 also possible. i'll be tracking this crash here, upper east shore freeway, we just got word of a crash which may be in lanes and cause more slowing between the carquinez bridge and richmond. back to you. >> thank you very much. >> hey, now. coming up next on today in the bay, the reason gas prices are expected to jump as we head into the memorial day weekend. >> plus, stepping into the future, the upgrades to one of san francisco's iconic painted ladies. [ whistles ]
internet speeds 20x faster. at&t fiber sounds amazing. wait a sec, i'm not done yet. less than 12% of at&t homes actually qualify. huh... hold on. everyone else gets our other, slower internet speeds. but no one reads this stuff anyway. except for the old guy with the binoculars. huh... we got ourselves a reader.
it is 6:12 as the sun rises over the south bay, this is a live look at san jose. and you see nothing but sun out there. the temperature trend for evergreen is going to start out nice and then at how hot it will be by 2:00 this afternoon. another sizzling day, but we are going to catch a break. i'll talk more about that coming up in five minutes. >> and this is a tough drive. look at that, though, you saw it go from 49 to 45 minutes. improvement. hopefully quickly.
south 6 through pleasanton. the earlier crash has cleared near sunol. we'll track the ripple effect. >> thank you very much. >> 6:13 on your monday, just in time for memorial day weekend coming up this weekend, the chp launching its click it or ticket campaign, reminding drivers and passengers to buckle up. the national campaign runs through june 4th and the chp will be out in full force cracking down on violators. just a reminder, it doesn't take much time to buckle up, but it could save your life. more than 97% of californians do buckle up. >> as we do barrel toward the memorial day weekend, you can expect gas prices to continue to climb. prices at the pump recentlyrosis about a half cent for a gallon of regular, but they're expected to go much higher as the cost of crude oil jumps. a look at where things stand. local prices in the bay area. san jose, the average price of gas is $3.16 a gallon. in oakland, $3.14.
in san francisco, no surprise, the highest of the group, the average price of a gallon of regular gas will set you back $3.23 a gallon. >> for years, tesla offered owners a nice perk. they could charge their cars for free at any of their super charger stations. in january, the company said it was going to phase the program out. tesla says now new users can take advantage if they get a driver to give them a reffral code existing owners can give free unlimited charging up to five friends. current owners can still get free charging if they decide to buy another tesla model. if somebody is friendly, you know why. >> you have to make those friends. >> a new look for some very old and storied ladies here in san francisco. on wednesday, san francisco's famous alamo square opening up to the public again after a $5 million makeover. >> the park is not the only thing that looks different. the neighborhood also makings. one of the iconic painted ladies across the street from alamo
square has taken a big step into the future. the original painted lady built in 1892 now supplies her own power. solar panels were added to the roof, allowing the historic home to generate 90% of its own electricity. the homeowner tells us he's hoping the fact he was able to do it will inspire other people to also go green. >> despite a very well known historical home, it's still possible to go with a clean energy solution. and it's something that everybody can do. it's not difficult. we have probably had one of the most difficult houses to get solar onto, and we did it. >> solar company sunrun had that daunting task of installing the solar panels on top of the steep roof of the house. >> the was good p for sunrun. however, the company also has a daunting task ahead explaining itself to investors. >> there are accusations this morning about the accuracy of its numbers. >> yeah, and that's one of the
toughest accusations you can face on wall street. the "wall street journal" says this morning it talks with former managers of the solar start-up who tell reporters they manipulated sales numbers ahead of the company's ipo in 2015. the managers claim they were told not to report customer cancellations which had the effect of boosting sales numbers. the journal says the ce oh declined to be interviews for the article but in a written statement, she said the company turned up no evidence of wrongdoing. a monday morning surprise out of detroit. the ceo of ford is out. mark fields who helped lead ford into new industries like ride share and automated cars will step down. ford just confirmed that just a couple minutes ago. ford haa notable presence in the bay area as it works to compete with google and tesla. it has an advanced research lab in palo alto where they're working on cars of the future. including a self-driving ford fusion, and it purchased chariot, the small private bus
system that runs routes in san francisco. we expect those efforts will grow bigger because the person in charge of the efforts, the new ceo, is jim hackett, who used to run the palo alto effort. so more automated cars, more electric cars, more in palo alto. and it sounds as if uber is staying in pittsburgh, pennsylvania, not going very well. uber, you remember, moved its automated cars out of san francisco after it was discovered uber never got permission from the state of california to drive them, so they did allow their testing in pittsburgh. the mayor of pittsburgh says uber has backed out of promises to provide free rides and backed out of help with a $50 million grant application. pittsburgh is kind of finding out what it's like to do business with uber. >> you know the tory about the frog and the scorpion? >> yes, tell us. >> i don't have time to tell you. you have to google it. basically, frog and scorpion. >> yeah. thank you very much, scott. and pore flooding is
expected in alabama today after report-breaking rain led to flooding over the weekend. montgomery was hit with more than eight inches of rain. saturday into sunday. no injuries reported, no road closures reported, but a lot of folks say their homes were damaged. this weekend rainfall broke a 37-record. >> those streets aren't supposed to look like rivers but they do right now. we have not seen much rain in our forecast recently, but that has not prevented rivers from getting more swollens, as we see. >> that's because of the snow melt in the sierra. that's over toward truckee river and the merced river. those are the areas we're watching for flooding. here in the bay area, let's look at the anderson reservoir, which was overflowing throughout the winter. and now it looks nice and calm. as the sun rises this morning with some sunshine, looking at pleasanton, a beautiful start to this monday morning. and we've also had some clear visibility inland. as you go along the coast, we have seen some fog rolling by.
and visibility down to about three quarters of a mile in half moon bay. a half of a mile in santa rosa, and napa also seeing light patchy fog this morning. this will also keep some areas cool along the coast. as we start out in the upper 40s to low 50s right now, we'll see the high temperatures for the south bay and los gatos up to 90 degrees. 87 in gilroy. and 93 in danville today. fremont, 85 degrees for the high temperature. san mateo, 77 degrees. and 67 in ingleside, and 86en santa rosa, while point reyes will be at 67 degrees. you see the span of the temperatures. in san francisco, as we go through the day, this is how it breaks down. 58 degrees at 8:00, then up to 70 degrees by lunchtime. another day to take the lunch outside and enjoy the nice weather. if you're planning to head the short week over towards the sierra, we talked about the snow melt. here's a look at heavenly. still a lot of snow on the
ground and our temperatures in the 70s over the next couple days. so more of that snow melting. you better get there and enjoy it. san francisco, we're going to see the temperatures dropping back into the low 60s. thursday will be the coolest day of the week, but it's still going to be very warm inland for the next couple days, reaching into the low 90s. then we catch a break the air conditioner up on full blast, more sunshine the rest of the week. as we head over to mike, you're tracking what's happening on the roads and also using waze to help us out. >> that's right. betters on the roads, and we have early reports of a crash in pleasanton from our waze system. that's great. wazers out there helping us out get the information, even though chp is working hard, they can't do everything. we're looking at the south bay, a crash cleared and no delays for the peninsula. recovery now, 680 as we had sued, is clear. i saw a change in the sensors. some improvement now already because of a lighter springtime traffic flow heading into the summer for schools.
84 still seeing more traffic. let's check with waze and they'll show you if you do use that blue route, that's a slower drive. you cut across through stanley, that might help you out more than 680. that will continue to change. make sure you're joining our team. one of the wazers in the east bay told us about the crash on willow that did clear from the upper east shore freeway. if you join our team, nbc bay area wazers, you help us out and we'll help you. >> thanks. preventing obesity and health issues at a young age. >> after the break in two minutes, the new dietary guidelines from doctors that impact anyone with young children. the big, bulky part of a furniture delivery arrives on time, but the accessories don't. i'm chris chmura, nbc bay area responds, next. president trump is at the

deviates from past guidelines which had advised against juice for baby under 6 months old. but doctors are concerned about childhood obesity and dental health. fruit juice is full of calories and sugar is is not a good substitute for fresh fruit. they recommend only four ounces of juice a day for toddlers and six ounces for preschoolers. ♪ >> that is the final curtain call for america's longest running circus, perhaps better known as the greatest show on earth. ringling brothers last night performed its last ever show, pulling up the tenlt for good after a performance in new york. ringling cited a decline in attendance for demise, which became more pronounced when it ended its controversial elfephat act. >> nbc bay area responds to a
san jose woman who paid for home accessories she said she never got. >> our consumer team stepped in and helped her out. chris chmura is here with her story. >> margaret bought some new furnitures and accessories from ashley furniture in milpitas. everything was delivered just fine, except for a $75 accessory set. margaret says she asked the store to either deliver the accessories or give her a refund. neither happened. after five months of trying to get this resolved, she reached out to us for help. we contacted ashley, and it issues margaret a refund for $75. in a statement, it said we take these matters seriously. we do apologize for any inconvenience this may have cause. if you have a consumer complaint, call us. 888-996-tips. or logon to nbcbayarea.com/responds. >> thank you, chris. coming up next, a video we have been talking about that is all over social media. a sea lion snatching a young girl from a dock. all of this caught on camera.

as students walked out on vice president mike pence some boos greeted the vice president as he took the podium. but as he started to speak, dozens of graduates just left their own commencement ceremony. hundreds of students signed a petition asking the university not to invite president trump. the school then instead invited vice president pence. one graduate from san francisco said he will never regret his decision to walk. >> so my mom last night was asking me, you only have this once, aren't you going to regret this? and to all the people that are booing us and so on, yeah, i only do have this once. how do i want to look back on this? for me, i want to look back on it a moment where i was able to stand up for what i believe in. >> protesting graduates cited the trump administration's stances on immigration and lgbt rights. >> a court hearing in washington that could impact the future of the affordable care act. usa today reports that federal judges will hear an argument
from the trump administration attorneys on whether or not to delay an appeal filed against a recent ruling over the payment of health care subsidies. attorneys may argue to delay that case until august after insurers have filed proposed premiums for 2018. today's hearing is tied to a larger lawsuit filed by house republicans seeking to eliminate those subsidies all together. >> the administration also plans big cuts ahead for the poor and for the elderly. billions of dollars that could come out of medicare and food stamps. >> scott mcgrew, the white house releases the president's proposed budget today. >> "the washington post" got a sneak peek at that budget due out today. the post says that budget includes $800 billion in cuts to medicaid over the next ten years. we knew that was coming because that was part of the republicans' major cut to health care, and an enormous cut to food stamps as welt. we saw the discretionary budget
a few weeks ago. republicans both want to balance the budget and give people tax cuts, but there's just not enough room in the discretionary spending area to do that. particularly if you're trying to grow the military. you can find money in the biggest part of the pie, right? where you're to find things like medicaid. here's candidate trump, though, telling a reporter he would never do such a thing. >> and i'm not going to cut social security like every other republican or medicare or medica medicaid. >> while washington looks over the budget, president trump is in israel right now as part of the big overseas trip. video from a short time ago, as the president and first lady visited a holy church, an important spot in the christian religion. the church built on top of the police it's believed jesus was crucified and the location of his tomb. then he walked to the western wall, at the foot of the temple mountain.
planning for this part of the trip did cause controversy when the american delegation ahead of the president said benjamin netanyahu could not accompany the president because the area was not part of israel. it's part of the west bank, according to those planners. president trump will spend two days in israel and the west bank. he was in saudi arabia over the weekend, then he'll go to rome to meet with the pope. brussels, and then back to sicily. we'll cover it all. we examine the president's tweets and executive orders and speeches every morning on today in the bay. we would love to hear from you. you can share thoughts with me on twitter. i'm @scottmcgrew. >> 6:49. we have been seeing local water levels rise as the temperatures heat up. now, just ahead of the memorial day weekend, the coast guard trying to get out the word about boating safety. this week marks national safe boating week. the coast guard wants to remind boaters to wear life jackets at all times, to have a working radio onboard and monitor conditions before you head out
and create a plan with family and friends. >> and those rivers and waterways are kind of high right now, kari, because the heat is melting the snow pack. >> that's been the issue, especially as we go into the next couple days. going to see more of that snow melt happening in the sierra. and for the bay area, we're going to have some cooler temperatures here. it's been so hot. but at least it's mild as you get ready to head out the door. 50s, upper 50 for the south bay. bay at 55 degrees, and 49 in san francisco and the north bay. you see all the low clouds and the fog? that is going to help us out as we go into the afternoon, keeping the coastal areas cool. the valleys, no help at all. up to 95 degrees today. we're taking a live look outside in pleasanton, up to 81 in the east bay. nice in san francisco, as you get a little more sun, but the north bay valleys will still make it up to 90 degrees. as you get a look out the window this morning and looking alt the
closet getting ready for the day, don't forget those sunglasses. we needed them every day. also, short sleeves as our temperatures will be very warm heading into this afternoon. as you get the kids ready for school, it feels nice this morning. at recess, so keep in mind as the temperatures quickly warming up, the kids outside most likely peeling off some layers, and you probably don't even need to bother with the jacket today. it will be another hot day, looking at the high temperatures, especially inland, reaching into the 80s 90s. if you have today off, heading somewhere nice and cool, enjoy some time at santa cruz where the temperatures will only be in the mid 60s today. i was just south of santa cruz yesterday and saw the fog rolling by pretty much all day long. as we look at san francisco's forecast, it will also be foggy during the morning. high temperatures cooling off and only reaching 62 degrees on thursday. the coolest day of the week. still hot, though, inland, reaching into the low 90s today and tomorrow. then it looks very nice as we head into the long holiday
