6:09 am
a little bit cooler tomorrow but at least we will continue with the sunshine. on mother's day, there will be a chance of showers especially in the north bay, and take a look at how cool it's going to be, only some low 60s with the gusty winds, i think saturday is going to be the best day of the weekend. we'll talk more about that coming up. mike, may want to get my mom a gas card. >> a great gift for mother's day, too, because prices are like diamonds. not so bad in spots like vallejo, we have it below $5 a gallon at royal gas on tennessee street, it's $4.97 a gallon. in san jose, it will be above $5, l&d on south king road is $5.19 a gallon. in morgan hill our southernmost of the three, $5.29 at the 76 on monterey road so some options, some variety depending on where you are. as we look at the roadways, we have mostly green, that's a great option. it's a friday. we typically see that. the slowing patterns showed up about 5:40 and eased off a little bit early. friday, a shorter-lived commute for the first burst.
6:10 am
second one should be a little shorter-lived clearing by about 8:00, but right now highway 4, 37 and the bay bridge showing slower drives, typical spots again, not as extensive as a monday through thursday. the fog that kari pointed out is an issue. chp gives the note just like the sign kari pointed out, slow down, wet road. it may be a little slick and there may be mist, enough to use the windshield wipers as it developed over the last few minutes here. back to you. >> thanks, mike. coming up for you, sharks by the dozens, but in florida. so coming up here on "today in the bay," these are cute, not dolphins there. a warning for the swimmers out there and the reason experts believe these sharks are getting so close to shore. and bears everywhere on wall street. plus the latest jobs numbers, those are good bye then there's those bears. plus -- ♪ you ain't nothing but a hound dog, crying all the time ♪ ♪ you ain't nothing but a hound

6:14 am
commute starts out with some low clouds. you ma i have to turn on the windshield wipers and our ten tours start out in the upper 50s. we'll see a mix of sun and clouds today, and really comfortable temperatures in spots. we'll talk about this and a look ahead to mother's day coming up. and the metering lights are on at the bay bridge, but it is friday, so your friday commute is in effect. that means lighter traffic so only slowing is on the incline. doing all right, here is fog on the golden gate bridge. we'll see how things are shaping up as you get ready to leave the house in the next few minutes. good morning, very happy friday to you. it is the first friday of the month. so we just got the latest jobs numbers, showing 428,000 jobs added to the american economy in april. that's a very strong number. it's the 12th month in a row we've been over 400,000. we were hoping to see the unemployment rate fall to 3.5%. we are still at 3.6 but that's a really good number.
6:15 am
let's look at the bad news. the dow fell more than a thousand points on thursday. the nasdaq even more, when you measure it as a percent, down 5% in a single day. so we were talking about this yesterday. the economy's doing well. we're near maximum employment. the stock market is not doing well. money is moving out of stocks into bonds as interest rates go up. the economy is not the stock market, and the stock market is not the economy. cnbc reports elon musk will take over as interim ceo at twitter, once he's completed that purchase. that's led a number of people to wonder if musk overextended himself. he already says he sleeps on the factory floor at tesla some nights. the business editor at "axios" tweeted i'm old enough to remember it was a problem twitter's ceo had only one other job, referring to when jack dorsey on the right was the ceo of twitter, also the ceo of
6:16 am
credit card processing company square at the same time and a lot of analysts said at the time that was too much to concentrate on. dorsey eventually stepped down as twitter's ceo. musk would be the interim ceo of twitter, the leader of tesla, chief engineer at spacex, as well as the company's neural link boring company and open ai. those are just the ones i can think of off the top of my head. i think he's probably got a couple more projects he's going to tell us about soon. >> is that a problem for investors, do you think, they say how can you spread yourself that thin and be successful? >> i think it's a legitimate concern especially looking at a guy with two companies, and as marcus was pointing out earlier, tesla is so behind in making cars, not the ceo's fault. it's just the demand but i can see as a tesla shareholder why you'd be concerned. we can make more money and more cars. >> the proof is in the pudding. he could run 17 companies.
6:17 am
>> we'll see. >> thanks, scott. 6:56 for you this morning. we've got some new video to show here. a warning for folks in florida, the beachgoers those are not dolphins or tadpoles. those are sharks swimming. authorities along the gulf coast released this video of what's believed to be dozens of black-tipped sharks which can grow up to six feet. so experts say the black-tipped sharks move towards the coast during the spring and summer months and typically do not pose a serious threat to humans but of course probably do not have the whole pack of sharks swimming together in mind when they say that. you get them all together you never know how they respond. >> it takes one bad an toll spoil the batch. >> i don't want to be the apple. trending this morning, doge cat is taking presley's "hound dog" to its blue roots. >> this is a track from an upcoming elvis biopic.
6:18 am
take a listen. ♪♪ >> i like that. is that big mama thornton, the original singer of "hound dog." >> i didn't know that. >> elvis is not the original. my producer put it there for me. elvis, memphis, so doja cat flair to the classic blue song, elvis covered "hound dog" and turned it into a huge hit. here is the original for you. ♪ you ain't nothing but a hound dog ♪ ♪ you ain't nothing but a hound dog ♪ >> the original version is the best version. >> big mama thornton, she's bad. >> you knew it. >> i did, i looked up, oh, the producer is putting it in there for me, thank you, producers.

6:20 am
a little cooler for parts of the inner bay where hayward reaches 69 degrees. antioch reaching 76 and some mid-60s up and down the peninsula, and when you head into san francisco, we're up to about 59 in the marina district and downtown 64 degrees. 64 also in mill valley and for napa, up to 71, really nice weather today, but don't be surprised if you see some spotty, light showers moving through, especially in the north bay. it clears out for the afternoon but here we are at 11:00, there could be light rain passing by if you'll be out late tonight you may want to make sure you have the umbrella just in case. tomorrow's all dry and then on sunday, yes, mother's day, we're going to have a chance of spotty showers. most of that rain stays to the north but especially if you're traveling across the region, maybe going to the sierra, there could be some rain and snow coming down, and we're still in an active weather pattern next week, where there will be some storm systems passing just to our north, and we're going to get the cooler air, so in all,
6:21 am
we're looking at maybe a tenth of an inch of rain over the next week from san francisco on southward. the highest rain chances and the more measurable rain will be farther to the north, ukiah on northward and for the sierra, another foot of snow, this would be great to see over the course of the next week, while it's mainly dry here, we could see some light showers off and on. that will definitely be the case on mother's day into monday. look at how cool it's going to be before it warms up for the middle of next week. mike, how is it looking on the roads this morning? >> kari looking like this, san jose easy short-lived first burst of traffic. the second one should be building about now. there you see traffic moving smoothly though and there is no slowing on our sensors northbound 101 just north of 680. friday shows a lighter build. i checked back to san martin, a little tiny bit of slowing but nothing major. folks are getting a little bit, maybe taking a break from commuting in on friday as

"today in the bay's" bob redell joining us live in outside of police headquarters. bob, how is the police union
6:32 am
responding? >> reporter: good morning to you, kris. the san jose police officers association, that's the union, they tell us that if these allegations are proven to be true, this person has no place in law enforcement. nbc bay area learned an officer who responded to a home recently with a mother and daughter inside is accused of performing a solo sex act in their kitchen. this is the third recent case of serious accusations of misbehavior by a san jose police officer. last week we learned that 24-year-old rookie officer de'jon packer died from a fentanyl overdose in march following a night of partying with other officers, another officer was placed on administrative leave for allegedly being intoxicated when he responded to the scene of a kidnapping of a baby boy, sources with knowledge of the case tell us the officer had a blood alcohol level of 0.139, nearly twice the legal limit. >> having these different incidents really led us to a place where we want to start taking a much harder look at our
6:33 am
hiring process, our backgrounding process and really see is there something that's being missed. >> even though this only involves a small number of officers, there's a spillover effect that people will start to wonder what is going on at the san jose police department when you think of this many incidents in a short period of time. >> reporter: that's nbc bay area's legal analyst steven clark, who said the d.a.'s office will likely review every case involving these officers because defense attorneys are sure to use the misconduct to poke holes in prosecutor's cases the alleged misconduct i should say, and in clark's opinion, that could lead to some cases being overturned. reporting live in san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> all right, thank you, bob. we'll see how it all kind of plays out. 6:33 for you this morning. new overnight, santa rosa police are investigating a shooting during a side show.
6:34 am
this happened at about 10:00 last night at sebastopol road and west avenue. one man was shot several times and is now in critical condition. he is expected to survive. despite hundreds of people being there, police have no suspects at this time. also overnight in oakland, police responded to several side shows, this video showing what's going on from the citizens app, showing the cars spinning out of control, the crowds gathering around and police tweeted they towed several of the cars out there. no word of any arrests or citations issued. an east bay trucker hopes his mounted camera tracks down what he says are two thieves caught in the act. it happened in his driveway at his home in concord and those burglaries stole expensive tools. so he's going public about this because he doesn't want the same thing to happen to someone else. the thieves got away with $2,000 worth of equipment.
6:35 am
>> i do feel violated. we're new here in town and we have been feeling that it's a nice neighborhood. >> no matter how safe you feel, it could happen to you. concord police say the city is not immune to escalating problems of brazen car break-ins, catalytic converter rip-offs and property crimes. >> you take somebody's tools, they can't go to work. that is rough. this morning berkeley leaders are reportedly giving the green light to a new community safety department that would work side by side with the police. the department would be staffed by social workers who would respond to conflicts and other non-emergency calls instead of police officers. as "the chronicle" reports last night councilmembers approved the plan but the city still has to find the funding. friday morning for you, at 6:35, taking a live look at the sunrise here, over san jose as we get started with the weekend. meteorologist kari hall has been tracking what we can expect from that forecast over the weekend. >> yes. >> you said some rain may be
6:36 am
headed our way. >> yes, it's going to be toward the end of the weekend. if you're planning to be at the giants game for tonight we're starting out at the upper 50s at oracle park and going to be breezy as well. we'll see the fog rolling in so be prepared for the cool temperatures, and also those gusty winds by the end of the game. mill valley music festival happening tomorrow, starting at 12:30. if you're going to be out there, light jacket but nice with the mix of sun and clouds and going into the afternoon and evening with the temperatures falling back to the mid-50s. if you're making mother's day plans, heads up we'll see some peeks of sunshine there and a couple of spotty showers. off and on wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour, windy if you're going to be out there, and the chilly temperatures will be with us with highs in the 50s and 60s, going to the sierra, we're looking at tricky road conditions about three to six inches of snow and farther to the north, there may be an
6:37 am
isolated thunderstorm. we most likely won't see that in napa valley but i think tomorrow is the best of the two days as our highs there reach into the low 70s and for santa cruz, it's going to be in the upper 60s today, mid-60s tomorrow, but only the upper 50s by sunday. as you're waking up and heading out this morning, it looks good, but mike, you've been watching the road conditions. how is it looking around the bay area? >> kari, you had the low clouds behind you. here fog touches the roadway, that's to or from the north bay. you mentioned the mill valley music festival as well, first ever, and the local police and the organizers say i'm supposed to remind you all. don't just park anywhere. look for the signs to tell you where you can park so you don't disturb businesses there. toward the north bay the golden gate bridge showed you fog but the speed sensors show you it's just fine, mind the speeds for safety conditions and mind the crowds over here after work, this evening like yesterday oracle and chase both have events, same events, giants game
6:38 am
and a concert. there shouldn't be overlap because the start time of the concert arena is after the start time for the game. however, there will be crowds in the area again and friday night combining with that. friday morning a lighter drive, slowing hay way 4 and 37 but the richmond toll plaza you have to pause in spots and slowing san jose north 101 around oakland road. back to you. >> thanks, mike. saying farewell to one of our favorite giants. coming up next how the team will honor buster posey this weekend. the dow industrials lost more than 1,000 points yesterday down another 350. as we wrap up teacher appreciation week we'll introduce to you a bay area teacher getting far more than an anal from her students today.
