phil, thanks. hot weather and rotting garbage. it is never a good combination. thuy vu says that's exactly what people in san mateo are dealing with tonight. >> reporter: garbage, baking in sweltering heat. not something we want to see in front of our homes but that's exactly what folks are dealing with in at least 10 cities stretching from burlingame to east palo alto. >> i think it's a shame. i certainly want my garbage picked up in front of my home. >> reporter: more than 500 drivers, mechanics and clerical employees at the trash collection company allied waste are refusing to cross a picket line to show solidarity with their fellow union workers. those striking workers, 12 in automatic are employed at allied's ox mountain land full in half moon bay. they say the company is trying to force them to make co- payments for healthcare and limit their health benefits. >> since they tried to cap it, we are out here trying to see if they will leave it alone. >> allied waste also wants workers to contribute money to their pensions in the future.
6:04 pm

6:05 pm
table yesterday with another contract offer, but obviously it wasn't good enough. the striking workers at ox mountain landfill have now been working without a contract for eight months. so how long will this work stoppage last? well, it was supposed to last originally for 48 hours ending tomorrow. union officials say it could be longer. >> going in a long holiday weekend coming up, as well. we'll see how that goes. thuy vu, thank you. there is another case of vandalism of plants at golden gate park. this time somebody chopped down shrubs. rick villaroman reports. >> i can say this to the vandals getting braver, they should be careful because golden gate park is safe and we are going to keep it safe. >> reporter: that's captain rich correa with a stern warning to the vandals that some call jack the clipper. >> what a serial
6:06 pm
horticulturalist? >> we don't know. it's a serial more culturist, no. >> i believe that we have -- honestly i believe we have a couple of folks that are engaging in this conduct. >> reporter: since may, that conduct includes damage to 4 trees, three entire rose beds and what were thought to be the latest casualties, nine bushes along park presidio. but evidence suggests this assault actually happened six to eight weeks ago. the evidence is key in any police investigation. and this is no different. sometimes, the dead talk. >> we are following up on clues and we do have some clues here. >> i believe that we will be able to develop some information about why those particular roses were hit. >> reporter: as the investigation takes root, the snare tightens. police are beefing up the number of patrols and undercover officers. >> anybody with a cutting device in the park is going to be of great interest to us. >> come and enjoy but don't take and don't cut. it's for the public. it's for everybody to enjoy. >> reporter: and it would seem
6:07 pm
that public also has a message for the clipper, as evidenced by this sign. please, love your trees. on the brighter side, the comparison to the dead telling their story ends right there as these victims are coming back to life. witnessed here by this single rose where just last week, there were none. in san francisco, rick villaroman, cbs 5. >> before we show you this next piece of video, a disclaimer. we are offering no value judgment on what you're about to see because we're talking about that. the fog. now, we know some of you are really happy to see it returning. we know some of you have enjoyed the sun and the heat. we read your e-mails. i have read you e-mails. there are strong differing opinions on all of that and all that we're saying is that the marine layer is on the way back. let's check in with roberta and see what's up. >> i hear you loudly every time you make fun of me because of my social media but i got to tell you it was like a game for
6:08 pm
me today because i was looking at the computer models that i was on twitter with people in pacifica, in santa cruz, in ocean beach, and they were telling me when the winds were shifting and we were able to like clockwork forecast when that marine layer was going to penetrate the land mass and cool us down. so boy, twitter can be a very useful weather tool, as well. this is the scene in the city by the bay, san francisco you saw it just now where the high was 74. san jose at 100. today, yes, very dry conditions there, as well. and it looks like at this particular time, our current air temperature still at 100 in san jose, concord today with a high of 106 degrees, now at 99. mill valley at 65. and san francisco in the mid- 60s. again, we do have that marine layer in earnest right there stacked up next to the coast. it will continue to push into the bay in the overnight hours. by tomorrow morning sunrise it will be playing tag with the
6:09 pm
tri-valley and then treating rapidly towards the bay waters but hanging very tight to the coast all day, knocking back the temperatures. so what you can pretty much bank on this evening, clear skies inland, but the low clouds are marching in towards the bay. now, this up here, way up to the north of us, this is going to make a big dent in your weekend forecast. but tonight, rest more comfortably, in the 50s to the low 60s. mountain view at 62 degrees. all right. here's your temperature forecast range for tomorrow. taking a look at the coast, 60 in pacifica. outside number of inland will be 90 degrees. so we are going to see a good 16-degree drop in some neighborhoods, for example, like concord, livermore was at 105 today. forecasting 89 for thursday. a good peek at the forecast. there you have your friday dropping a good five more degrees. saturday this is a trough. it's coming out of the north and i was alluding to unseasonably cool -- in fact 71 the outside number so most
6:10 pm
inland areas in the 60s. there is a very slight chance of a sprinkle or two far, far, far north bay from the trough on sunday. otherwise, we will begin to rebound with the numbers on tuesday and wednesday. live cbs 5 weather camera aboard chopper 5, looking at the city of san francisco, where yesterday it was 98 degrees. today topping off at 74 degrees. tomorrow's high, 66 when typically this time of the year we should be at 69 degrees. and again, all this is gradually sliding in an easterly direction across the bay. it's going to deepen as well a good 1500 to 2,000 feet. so tomorrow morning for your morning commute, i wouldn't be too surprised if you have localized drizzle next to the coast and bay, as well. dana and allen, isn't it beautiful? it's gorgeous. embrace it okay? >> now what? forget miss congeniality. we are going to give you the award for miss social media 2010. >> it's robertacbs5, that's my twitter, okay? but it was a great weather tool today. >> hit her up, folks.
