5:13 pm
with no limit is not always what it is cracked up to be. -- has the story. >> reporter: summertime. warm weather, slower pace, and of course, vacation season. workers, that means clocking out and taking their time off. but budgeting those vacation days can be kind of tricky. this is why one workplace benefit team tried unlimited vacation. it is a perk more and more young workers are looking for during the pandemic. in a 2022 harris poll for fortune, over 70% of jen z and millennial workers said unlimited pto was a benefit that would be important to them, with some going as far as saying they would even sacrifice a higher salary for unlimited time off. what does unlimited pto actually look like for folks who have it? let's start with the positives. it is a way to address a major issue many workers have struggled with over the past two years: burnout. >> i did a lot of studies about how much time people are taking off. they were only taking off, on
5:14 pm
average, 7 to 8 days. that is not very much. >> reporter: dean of local talent at linkedin. she helped usher in unlimited pto at the company seven years ago. >> in the old model, you have to earn your vacation a little bit at a time in order to be able to take it. with unlimited pto, there are no waiting periods like that. the reception has been great. i think if we tried to take it out there would be -- >> it all sounds simple enough, right? but there is another piece of the equation. do folks who have unlimited vacation actually use it? >> admittedly, i do not take a ton of days off in the first place. >> reporter: david vetter works at a fortune 500 company that offers unlimited pto. he says when it comes to actually taking advantage of that benefit, it all depends on the attitude of the workplace. >> my manager is actually pretty up front with us saying, hey, you have this time. please use it. >> if people do not see the
5:15 pm
manager taking time off, or they feel there is a frown when they asked for time off, that makes them not want to do it. >> it is not lost on me, i do not think it is lost on anyone else. i do think about, like, you say it is unlimited, but if i really take advantage of that, other going to be repercussions on the back end? >> i have got to tell you, on a day like this, unlimited time off, give me several of these in a row i will take them all. a great summer day. >> san jose was beautiful today. a good day to be down there, we had 80s. >> five will make a bit of a comeback, and we are starting to cool down a little. if you do not want to leave the valley, we will certainly see cooler conditions tomorrow right now, 84 degrees in san jose, northwood at 21 miles per hour, also breezy out to dublin, where it is 88, currently. we were near 100 degrees this
5:16 pm
time yesterday, now seeing more fog. that is a sign of the cooling from the ocean ac, making a bit of a comeback. 67 degrees in san francisco, westwind at 14 miles per hour. most of the map is now in the 80s, a few 90s in land, most locations 5 to 10 degrees cooler than the same time yesterday. this pattern will continue tomorrow, as our in land highs will be mostly 70s and 80s. though with increasing humidity, which is the reason why, for the first half of the day, morning and mid-day, there could be a chance of a few showers. morning temperature starts off in the 60s. around lunchtime, muddy conditions outside, 70s around san jose. from center to go to oakland, 60 to low 70s. as the wind picks up around 4:00 sunday, in land highs, now 70s and low 80s. the temperature was, things are coming down, but the humidity is about to come up. we will look at that again in about 30 seconds. right now, wind speed is something also to watch tomorrow, they will be stronger than we have seen today.
5:17 pm
by 5:00 tomorrow evening, 25 to 30-mile-per-hour winds, that will push the humidity out, but it will be dusty and cooler for sunday. you sought clouds around the golden gate bridge. not much there yet. santa cruz, still in the sunshine. pacifica and half moon bay into foggy conditions. here is an interesting view. this does not look like june, when you consider we have a weather system here that is approaching the coast, bringing a good chance of showers, and yes, boosted by the atmospheric river component. it is going to make the airfield moist outside. we had that last weekend, had pretty good rain in the north bay. we had half an inch to one inch of rain. this time around, it will not do that, but it could be enough to measure at least for a few parts of the north bay, around santa rosa and down toward kaplan bay. it is the coastal mountains and the north bay mountains, in that subtropical muggy air that potentially could ring out some extra raindrops. we will watch that around midday on sunday, then skies should start to clear.
5:18 pm
so, the best window of opportunity for finding showers will be sunday morning, around 10:00. you can see around sonoma county, and then by 2:00, passing through the central bay, then the skies start to clear, and winds pick up heading into sunday evening. and that system moves out, the other half of the weather whiplash is a warming trend for tuesday and wednesday. right now, looks like for today, we can see highs. similar to what we had today, i noticed fort fairfield, but then by wednesday, the 90s come back just like that. the seven-day forecast, once again, going from cooling and muggy tomorrow to some warming we will have to watch. notice today, we put the dry hills as a notice, because we could see northwind in the interior of northern california. we have to watch that for fire danger as temperatures start to climate. then cooling, should be windy and much cooler again toward the end of next week. so, june is really not behaving much like june, with shower chances and cooling as opposed to long, prolonged heat. that is good news. we could certainly use the
5:19 pm
extra shower. >> you mentioned last weekend, june has more rain for the bay area then february did, which is bizarre. >> looking ahead a little bit, we keep doing this 100 degrees, 75, rain here, rain there. >> what is interesting about the end of the week, thursday and friday, you see the cooling as we head toward next weekend. there is a chance there might be more showers across northern california again. with respect to tomorrow's weather systems, the bay area will not see much, just half an inch to one inch of rain in the northern sierra. for parts of the state, that is a short-term good news for fire danger to get that much range. >> buys a little time, right? thank you. >> a few days ago, a gas station went up in flames in the north bay. today, firefighters are giving us an update on the case. they are saying it was no accident. story when we come back.
