well as california. they're able to detect earthquakes as it's happening, not to predict them, but detect them, and a broadcast alert would go to the public. a new budget would only fund things currently in use by usgs, that includes the hazard maps and real time monitoring of earthquakes. i did get to speak with a scientist who said since the budget isn't finalized, we just have to wait and see what happened. >> the shake alert system is obviously very important. it can save lives, property. something that everyone wants to have for the western. but it is yet operational. the public emergency responders don't yet rely on shake alert. >> now, usgs received $10 million for the shake alert system last fiscal year. $2 million more than the previous fiscal year. for now, they're going to continue to work on the system until the president's budget is finalized. live in menlo park, pete suratos for today in the bay. >> thank you very much, pete.

hard to believe the race car driver involved in a crash yesterday walked away unharmed. >> it happened in the indianapolis 500. jay howard's car hits the wall, makes contact with scott dixon's car sending him airborne. it car breaks apart. amazingly, dixon climbed from the car uninjured. shocking. in a matter of days, the warriors will come back, competing for the nba title. the ws will take on the cavs for the third straight year. the series is already making nba history. the warriors and cavs are the first team to face off for the nba title three times in a row, and the warriors come in a perfect 12-0 in post season play. the first team to ever come into the finals with a perfect record. >> a team full of stars there. >> speaking of which, check this out. the northern lights dancing across the night sky above bismarck, north dakota this
weekend. spectators were greeted with this lovely vision, shades of blue and green early sunday morning. the photographer there captured 500 pictures and pulled them together to ultimately create this product, a ten-second time lapse video. that's just incredible to see. >> i don't think it's even possible for us to have the northern lights here, but we wouldn't see them if it happened now. >> it's all cloudy now. >> bridge lights. >> we can definitely settle for that because it is doing to be very nice. especially temperature wise. as we go through the day, so yeah, we're starting out with some clouds and fog, but we'll see it clearing out for most of the inland areas too. as we get a live look outside at san francisco, 53 degrees as you get ready to head out. a little cool and also seeing some drizzle there. looking live at sunol, also 53 degrees. but you can see that it's clear here, but the fog has settled into the tri-valley. and the low clouds. so that's what we're seeing, all of that moving outads we go through the day.
sunshine, here's a look at the high temperatures for the south bay. san jose up to 74 degrees. 73 in milpitas, and danville, up to 78. for the peninsula, upper 50s along the coast and in daly city, san mateo will be at 65 degrees. and ingleside today looking at a high of 59. mill valley, expect a high of 73 degrees, and upper 70s as you head farther to the north. those temperatures will be really heating up, even farther north from santa rosa. looking outside and you're getting ready for the day, we are going to have a day where you do need some long sleeves, especially starting out. and maybe a hat, too, to give you a little shade from the sun that will be breaking out later on today. we are in for some very nice weather. looking at san francisco over the next several days. ours will stay in the low to mid 60s and then into the upper 60s by the end of the week. look at this weekend's forecast. 72 degrees on saturday. it's going to be pretty warm.
and even hotter for the inland areas, up to 87 degrees by the weekend. so we do start out the week with some very nice, comfortable weather in the 70s. but you can see those temperatures going up a few degrees each day, and it peaks on saturday. as we head back over to vianey, what's happening on the roads? looks pretty quiet. >> thankfully, not much, and the speed sensors are definitely showing that. no major concerns out this hour. we are seeing a little bit of slowing along northbound 280. it appears to just have been a fender bender that might be causing people to kind of slow it down. so even though you have all of that space in between the cars with this light memorial day traffic, remember to slow down. northbound 101 to 87, about 13 minutes. northbound 87 to highway 101, 10 minutes, and if we take a live look right now at the south bay right where 280 and 80 meet, look at this. when has it ever been this light at 5:50 in the morning?

from it. >> the water is running twice as fast as last year. rafters need to remember that the river is an alcohol-free zone for the holiday weekend. >> scary moments on a break wall on the east coast as a high tide trapped dozens of people. coast guard rescued 44 people trapped by high tide on the break wall yesterday in massachusetts. two kids and their mother were knocked into the water during that incident. another family member jumped in to but they were all caught in a strong current. a former water polo player and his father then jumped into the water and then pulled that family to safety. >> we helped them get out and get to the shore, pulling them sideways so they weren't in the current anymore. >> the coast guard said a few people did suffer minor injuries but were very lucky. >> the uc board of regents facing more scrutiny after reports surfaced they spent 10s of thounls of dollars on parties. that included more than a $17,000 banquet the night before

the penny into the tread and making sure it goes over lincoln's head. now you know. >> u.s. airlinesing ready for a record breaking summer travel season. airlines expected to carry 234 million passengers from june 1st through august 31st. that is up from the record of 225 million a year ago. airline ticket prices are increasing, but they are still relatively affordable. it helps that major airlines like ued are also trying to lure customers back with lower fares after a video surfaced showing a passenger being dragged off a plane. all right, we were celebrating a birthday over the weekend, kris. a live look at the golden gate bridge which celebrated its 80th birthday over the weekend. visitors in town and you're planning on taking them to see the bridge today, make sure you plan ahead because you will not be able to park your car at the bridge's south welcome center parking lot or vista point on the north end of the bridge. this is a case every single holiday weekend since there's typically a huge surge of visitors. today is the last day of those
