5:06 am
to live and get a job. but some say an interview or book deal could fetch a half million dollars or more. >> this story has demonstrated its ability to capture national attention. and she has a very real chance to bankroll herself for the rest of her life. >> reporter: but whether that life will include anthony's family remains to be seen. her father george became the defense team's main target during the trial and a lawyer for anthony's parents says they haven't spoken to their daughter since 2008. >> at some point i imagine there will be some sort of family meeting. >> reporter: a family meeting that will be missing little caylee anthony. karen brown, cbs news, orlando, florida. time now 7 minutes after 5:00. a quick check on traffic and weather. here's lawrence. >> and we got that weather looking a little cooler around the bay area today. some patchy fog developing, some of that sneaking inside the bay right now. you can see extensive all along the california coastline here. it is going to move further onshore in the coming days to cool you down right into the

5:33 am
nation's largest air tanker. these dc-10 planes are used to drop fire retar can't over retardant. they carry 12,000 gallons. why is this important? these are the first line of defense against major state fires. they are also 10 times bigger than the next largest plane that cal fire has at its disposal. cal fire says they will use the planes on what's known as a call when needed basis in case of a major fire. >> tough budget times we have to make decisions. that's one of them. >> it's expensive but cost- effective and what is saved is of course if you're talking lives, you can't put a price on it. >> reporter: this isn't the first time cal fire has done this. they did it in 2009. consider that it takes 24 hours to staff these planes when
5:34 am
using them on this on call basis and it can cost up to 10 times more than the normal contract should be so in case of a large fire, california while they are trying to save money may spend up to 10 times more if there is a large fire that breaks out. >> thank you, anser hassan in morgan hill. time now 5:34. weather and traffic now. here's lawrence. >> like a breath of fresh air that fog is moving onshore right now. that's a sign of cooler temperatures in the works. it's extensive along the california coastline. the temperatures going to be coming down. yesterday 98 in livermore. today down 7 degrees still hot at 91. but cooler in concord. 96 yesterday, about 88 degrees today. that's 8 degrees cooler in concord. san jose also going to cool off. you get the idea the temperatures coming down across the board. we are hoping that will continue to cool down as we head in toward the weekend. looks like temperatures much
5:35 am
more comfortable around the bay area. a lot of 80s in the warmest spots. fog at the coast. may need a jacket there. those temperatures expected to be in the 50s and 60s. all right. it is traffic time with elizabeth. >> thank you, lawrence. we'll go out to antioch. a new accident now westbound highway had approaching a street so maybe blocking lanes. there is some slowing across that stretch so our sensors are already picking up some yellow meaning speeds under who -- speeds under who miles an hour. dennisdense fog advisory around daly city. check the golden gate bridge camera. our meteorologist lawrence confirms -- >> that is fog! >> that is fog, yeah. you can see it right there approaching the toll plaza. so visibility once again an issue this morning. hey, better news now this earlier traffic alert up in santa rosa. it is now clear all lanes once again re-opened on that ramp from southbound 101 to westbound 12. there a big old tree a downed
5:36 am
tree completely blocking that ramp for a while so crews picked it up and traffic alerts gone. that is your traffic. back to you. >> thank you. one of the nation's most high-profile murder cases is about to end a short time from now. >> but the drama is sure not about to end. casey anthony was of course acquitted this week on charges that she murdered her 2-year- old daughter but she was convicted of the lesser charges in the case and should be sentenced for those within the hour. and those charges just include lying. karen brown joins us with an update from orlando, florida. karen, what is the atmosphere there is this we know so many people across the country are upset about the verdict. >> reporter: you know, anne and frank, definitely the anticipation is growing outside the courthouse. security is intense. people who stood in line for hours yesterday are showing up so they can get into the courtroom they can take their seats. we know the defense is already here and it was a strange scene as the public noticed that they
5:37 am
were walking up, they raced over to them, of course, there's a lot of security here so everybody was fine. so a lot of anticipation because there are three basic choices this judge can make. one, he can give casey anthony more jail time. two, he can release her on parole. or three, he could set her free for time already served. >> because the maximum is one year for each count and that's four years and she already served almost three. >> reporter: that's absolutely correct, anne. so based on the fact that she has apparently been a model prisoner, this judge could say, look, you know, in a case like this, these are misdemeanor charges, you have already been in jail for nearly three years. i'm going to let you out. and there is a plan in place for her release. the orange county sheriff's department is concerned about her safety. so they have a plan in place already if she is processed out of that jail, they are going to take her in an unmarked vehicle
5:38 am
to an undisclosed location of her choice and they are going to release her into the public if that is the judge's decision. >> we hear her parents have been getting death threats. how about the jurors? because a lot of people as we all know were upset about the verdict. some of them are speaking now. it took them a day. are they starting to surface or are they still laying low? >> reporter: well, frank, only two of the jurors so far have come forward. and one has done it anonymously. he wouldn't give the local paper his name. but one thing that they do seem to have a consensus on these two jurors who came forward is the fact that emotionally they wanted to convict casey anthony of murdering her daughter but they just did not feel like there was the evidence. they did not feel that the prosecution proved what crime took place, how it too many and that information casey anthony was guilty. >> what a coincidence. the prosecutor is retiring now, the d.a. >> that's absolutely right. there's been a little bit about
5:39 am
that. but apparently that's been in the works for some time. he has been a prosecutor for 30 years and he has decided that he was going to be retiring when he has been asked about, you know, is this the way you want to go out he said, look, i've lost bigger case than this, apparently bigger cases in his own heart. so yeah, he is retiring his last day friday. >> all right. karen brown live in orlando, good job, thanks, karen. we appreciate it. 5:39 now. and job hunters know about the black hole. it's the place where their resumes go after they are submitted. just after the break, some tips to make sure yours gets read. >> we have all been there before. plus worries in the wine region. how warmer weather could reach some havoc on california vineyards all coming up. ,,,,,,
