5:06 am

5:08 am
association was the lead sponsor and commissioned a study that found californians could save millions under the system. in part because of lower drug prices and because they would no longer have to pay co-pays deductibles or premiums. this is as congress repealed the affordable care act. >> californians you get better quality care and the costs will come down for everybody and california will lead the way out of this. >> reporter: opponents of the bill say it could financially cripple the state! the bill moves on now to the assembly where it's expected to face a tough battle. the assembly would have to add amendments and come up with a way to pay for the $400 billion system. in san leandro, i'm flores florence, jessica flores, kpix 5. still ahead the big push in san francisco to repair potholes. >> that is correct. >> congratulations! you are the champion! >> there is a new national

5:13 am
beginning of repairs to potholes in the city. >> he already committed nearly $90 million tort street repaving and repairs. >> kpix 5's anne makovec is live in the city's richard district with the details. >> reporter: apparently, mayor ed lee is actually going to be out here in the richmond helping repair a pothole himself this morning. it is part of an effort to ease the bumpy ride we have all experienced driving not only here in san francisco but all around the bay area so the city is now committing that $90 million over two years to pothole repairs, repaving streets, striping and other safety improvements. it's all based on what is called the pavement condition index score. so san francisco's city streets have been rated as fair but distressed in that score. and they apparently need a combination of rehabilitation
5:14 am
and preventative maintenance. and that's really sort of key here because you see the city sort of doing a, you know, bit by bit repair short term repair but apparently they really need to get into the underground layers according to the city maintenance department. so! that is what they will be doing here in the richmond this morning. so if you want to see mayor ed lee get down and dirty, it is happening here along 27th street in the richmond. [ laughter ] live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. go ahead. [ laughter ] >> time now -- i'll take it. time now 5:14. let's check traffic with jaclyn. >> i'll take it from there. you know if you hit those potholes it can really damage your car. so take it easy on the roads. right now, we are tracking a pretty light ride along 580. the usual slowdowns. but we are getting first reports of a crash and this is westbound 580 as you approach 680. as you can see speeds drop a bit but really not too bad.
5:15 am
we are still in the green. improving speeds through the stretch 66 miles an hour. it could get slower depending on how severe this is. we'll wait until chp arrives and we'll have more details for you coming up in the next traffic report. for now let's take it to oakland where traffic is moving along much better than it was last night. i was on this stretch right before and after the game and it was slow and crowded. right now over at the bay bridge toll plaza, ten-minute ride from the maze into downtown san francisco. no metering lights and no backup on the eastshore freeway. so problem-free. take a look at this at 5:15. when was the last time we were able to see the tip-top of the transamerica pyramid so early? we were just socked in with areas of low clouds and fog yesterday. the visibility was limited. that's gorgeous. you can even see the top of the
5:16 am
crane of the "salesforce tower." this is lovely. there you see the "salesforce tower" on its rise towards the highest skyscraper in the bay area. there you see that finger of fog trying to work into the bay area. you can see a little sunrise towards the east. that's gorgeous. 50 in santa rosa to 57 in oakland. 52 in livermore. with the clear sky, we have a bit of a breeze this morning. southwest at 13 in oakland. this is an onshore push in san francisco. it's westerly at 9. we do currently have a south wind at 10 in consumer report and also 5 in livermore. 16 miles an hour in fairfield. john miller is our weather watcher in santa rosa this morning. 50 degrees there. clear skies. john you look like you're ready for the weekend. so let's get to it! we have your weekend forecast. first off satellite-radar suggests there's that swath of cloudiness trying to inch its way up the san mateo coast. you saw that little hint of
5:17 am
stratus into the bay this morning. we are under the influence of high pressure. it minimizes that onshore push but we still have a shallow deck stacked up next to the coast. so here's your futurecast at 1 p.m. you still have that swath playing tag with the immediate seashore. otherwise it kind of burns off and then we see it push back onshore in the overnight hours. we wake up with gray skies tomorrow morning and it backs off rapidly but hangs tight to right around the half moon bay, daly city and colma areas. and then overnight saturday night we begin to see it mix out due to a trough to the north of the bay area. the only thing that trough would do for us on sunday is bring our temperatures down ever so gently. but it will mix out that marine layer sooner. 83 state capital today. currently it's 59 degrees. we do currently have 32 degrees in truckee, 37 in tahoe going up to 72 degrees today. maintaining that temperature saturday going down on sunday due to that trough. 63 degrees in throughout monterey bay with the clearing
5:18 am
of the skies. our numbers stacking up from 60 at the immediate seashore, 60s and 70s bayside. approaching nearly 80 in redwood city backing through the south bay into san jose, santa clara, willow glen. mid-80s to the east, 86 degrees towards rio vista and fairfield. low 80s in napa, sonoma and glen ellen, as well. so our temperatures take a little hit away from the bay, otherwise 50s at the beaches approaching 70 bayside. warm on monday, like june summery conditions through thursday. i think the nationals are vacationing in california. they were playing the giants this week. now they are still in town playing the a's. 63 degrees clear skies. one of my favorite shows of the year, it's the good guys car show in pleasanton. boy! beautiful cars in the east bay, 80 degrees and lots of sunshine over the weekend for that show. make it a great weekend!

5:25 am
you shot a three kind of putting the dagger into them and you looked towards the crowd toward rhianna. was that on purpose or do you remember that or -- >> i don't even remember that. >> well, just let you know, social media is buzzing about it. >> really? >> yeah. >> don't get in that trap. >> yeah, don't get in that. >> i'm cool. >> reporter: now, kd knew. he knew. the warriors are just dominant in the post-season. i said they won 13 straight but they are winning these games by an average of over 16 points a game. so cleveland has a few days to try and figure out what went wrong. game 2 sunday here at oracle. reporting from oracle arena, i'm dennis o'donnell, have a great weekend. all right. the play of the day, can't get enough of the warriors game one win. check out steph curry with the handle. >> meanwhile, james has been to the free throw line eight times already in the first.
