good tuesday morning. right now at 5:43, we're planning our day around the temperatures. in brentwood the best time to go for a walk is right around sunrise. after that, it heats up so quickly we'll already be in the triple digits by noon. i'm tracking this heat for you and when we may find relief. that's coming up in a few minutes. looking at the bay bridge toll plaza. traffic streaming through the area. the metering lights have been activated about 2.5 minutes ago according to chp. they're slowing on the incline.
5:44 am
at the toll plaza, we're not feeling the wait. that's good news. a lighter fuel, but the commute is on -- a lighter trip, but the commute is on. today is an emotional day in uvalde. today is the day children return to the classroom more than three months after the deadly school shooting rampage. today we have more on the look at changes on tap for families. >> reporter: good morning. as you can understand, a lot of mixed emotions here in uvalde today. with robb elementary school being torn down, never to be used again, former students are now going to existing school campuses, and it will be a much different experience this year. a high fence now surrounds the entire school ground. on the inside, there will be extra counselors and comfort dogs on hand in the days and weeks ahead. this has been a community very much finding its way forward from this unspeakable tragedy. we do know that many of the students who did attend robb
5:45 am
elementary last year are choosing to remain in online learning. some tell us that they're now enrolled in private schools nearby. parents i spoke to say that while they believe the district here is making improvements, some don't feel it is fast enough. but everyone here is hopeful that this return to class can hopefully bring about some real healing. back to you. >> thanks. 5:45. president biden stumping for local candidates in pennsylvania and wisconsin. >> reminding americans that the democrats are getting things done. >> so say the democrats. yeah. good morning. today we are going to hear more about the bipartisan chip bill, playing up student loan help, calling out the more than ten million jobs created during his administration so far. unemployment near 50-year lows. >> more americans are working than any time in all of american
5:46 am
history. last year more people applied to start small businesses than any year in history. it didn't just happen. we never gave up. we never gave in. and we are delivering for working and middle-class americans now, now! >> in florida, a federal judge unexpectedly announced her decision on the special master in the mar-a-lago case, unexpected because it was labor day. it was a federal holiday. the special master will sort the documents that were found at trump's home into evidence that belongs to the taxpayer and trump's personal items which belong to him. something the doj says it's already done. this was a double win for former president trump. he'll get a special master, and the judge ordered the justice department to stop its criminal investigation while the special master does its work. a separate investigation led by the head of america's director of national intelligence will be allowed to move forward. looking into how much if any
5:47 am
damage was done to america's secrets. this decision to allow a special master startled many legal experts. the decision to allow that special master to consider executive privilege, as well, really surprised them. executive privilege protects the president's privacy in the white house, but trump is not president. this came up three years after nixon left the white house. he wasn't mt. but wanted to claim -- president, but wanted to claim executive privilege for the watergate tapes and the courts said no for two reasons. the tapes were part of a criminal investigation, much like the papers are now, and two, nixon wasn't president anymore. the judge in the trump case saw differently. the judge writing the high court "did not rule out the possibility of a former president overcoming an incumbent president on executive privilege matters." obviously this needs to winds through the courts which we know is often a deliberate strategy for the trump team. but we can boil it down to one
5:48 am
simple idea, and that is the trump team's saying that the 11,000 documents are protected from screening by outside eyes. the justice department says it doesn't matter what those documents are or who looks at them, under american law they don't belong to you. we'll be tacking all of this. we don't expect any progress today, but we got surprised yesterday. we'll talk about it on twitter, where you'll find me @scottmcgrew. >> thank you. do you know when you or the man in your life should start screening for prostate cancer? in the u.s., one in nine men will get a prostate cancer diagnosis sometime in their lifetime. for black men it's one in six. for men with the family history of prostate cancer, it's one in five men. for men at average risk, you should begin screening at age 50. because of the higher risk factor, african american men should start at age 45, and men with a first-degree family history, that is a brother or a father with prostate cancer, those screenings should begin at
5:49 am
age 40. with nuclear medicine, there are more focused treatments, too. >> the men need to man up and go talk about this and get checked. and it's -- the earlier you check it, the better it is. >> someone who's diagnosed at any stage of the disease, the prognosis is much better than it was five or ten years ago. in fact, i lost my own father two years ago, and the treatments and these -- coming up in the pipeline. >> you don't want to put it off because the five-year survival rate for men whose cancer is caught before it spreads is greater than 99%. trending morning, a look at how life starts after winning 23 grand -- >> clearly for one, you'll need one of these. the blanket. ur probably earned rest there. this is how serena williams started her retirement from the game of tennis. she posted this on social media

5:51 am
in the valleys, we're starting out in the upper 60s and low 70s. we know it only goes up from here. the seven-day forecast is coming up at the bottom of the screen. i don't want to see you out there running after 8:00, 9:00 in the morning. look at antioch and our temperature trend. we're in the mid 70s for your workout in the morning. head to the gym. air continuing. all that stuff. don't go out for a run after 9:00 to 10:00. look at these temperatures -- we're reaching into the triple digits by noon. and we'll compare what we're expecting today, compared to our records and even all-time high temperatures, liverpool expected to reach 118 degrees today. that would blow that old record from 2020 out of the water. we're going to see more extreme temperatures today. even as we look up and down the peninsula from 90 in san francisco, 99 in san mateo. and 114 in dublin. santa rosa reaching 111. tomorrow we see some of these temperatures coming down just a

little bit, but then it's right back up on thursday. we are not done with this heat wave yet. we're looking at our thursday temperatures, still in the 90s for oakland. and 106 for los gatos. the effects of this heat on your body can definitely really take its toll especially going deeper into day after day of these hot temperatures. watch out for any signs of heat exhaustion or heatstroke. definitely possible, especially with temperatures like this. if you're going to the beach to cool off, it's still going to be hot at stinson beach, reaching 93. then some better weather coming over the next few days where our valleys are still looking at our highs over 100 degrees through friday. we may trade the heat for humidity this weekend. and even watch out for a chance of thunderstorms, especially on saturday with highs in the mid 90s. some weird weather. we're going to see that continue into the weekend. mike, you're see something slowdowns in spots. >> yeah. a few spots kind of cropping up. we talked about san jose here.
5:53 am
