6:15 am
♪ welcome back. time is 6:15. hopefully people living in north san jose and downtown will be able to sleep more restfully. the city has established a partial quiet zone along the train tracks. [ train whistle ] yeah, you're not going to hear that. gone are the loud train horn blasts in the overnight hours as trains pass through 14 intersections. they could be heard at between deerdon station and north san jose, including japajapan town. friday, the city celebrated the quiet zone, banning from 10:00 at night to 7:00 in the morning. >> every time the train comes, that has been a lot nicer. we definitely get better sleep.
6:16 am
>> i think it is particularly important as we see a lot more housing coming into this area, right? >> yeah, those horns can be deafening. the horn blasts at crossings are required under federal safety guidelines. the city was able to establish the quiet zones through changes approved by congress and local leaders. let's turn to bay area weather with first alert meteor meteorologist. >> we are going to be officially in cruise control for the weekend. that's the headline in the first alert forecast for saturday and sunday. it is different next week. there is a warmup coming, and we have to go back up into the low to mid 90s again for some of our warmest inland spots. even at that, the warmup coming our way for next week is not going to impact us equally across the bay area. there will be big differences. since that's next week, and we have the weekend in front of us first, let's start there. that's the view from the top of salesforce tower. sunrise came up at 5:57 this morning. you can tell that's the vantage
6:17 am
from the salesforce tower top. this is from the top of mount a diablo, looking over the strait. we're looking into the north bay there, where we are noticeably warmer. look at the temperatures for the inland valleys, particularly up through vilsla solano. napa, noticeably cooler right now, with temperatures that have dipped down about nine degrees or so from where they were yesterday. we turn the wind off. we brought in some cooler air. now to start the morning, look at the coast for half-moon base, 11 degrees warmer. majority of us, there's not a lot of change in terms of how it feels from yesterday to tomorrow. if you're an early morning riser on friday about this same time, it is going to feel almost identical to the way it did when you stepped outside. for daytime highs today, we climb into the mid 80s. if you are inland valleys, mid 70s, through the heart of the east bay shoreline, and we've turned the wind off. that was really the focus of the forecast over the last few days.
6:18 am
thankfully, we're putting that behind us. we're not looking at any of the red flag warnings or the wind advisories in the mountains. that's all been allowed to expire. now, we turn our attention to other things, like the marine layer. we'll probably see that build in tomorrow morning, but shouldn't be too widespread. here comes the warmup. if we take a look at today, saturday afternoon, the colors on the map show where temperatures are above or below average. i'll let that play ahead to tuesday. as we go past tuesday and into wednesday, you saw the screen light up in orange and deep red for us, showing us quite the warmup. what would average be anyway? 79. if we look at the inland valleys, already in the mid 80s today, the numbers are going to climb to 94 by the time we get to tuesday. but if we do the comparison, and instead of looking at the inland valleys, let's come back over the hills and use the bay sh shor shoreline. oakland. watch the average lie drop. oakland, daytime high, 60s for this time of year anyway. while we warm up on tuesday,
6:19 am
instead of mid 90s, it is low 80s. that's a good example of how we're all going to experience this differently. let's see how it plays out in the seven-day forecast. san jose, you'll be 90 by tuesday. you're staying low 80s and sunny for the rest of this weekend. if we look at the microclimates, we see the number jump. mid 90s by tuesday. inland east bay and north bay valleys, mid 90s. about ten degrees warmer by the time we get to tuesday than we will be today. in other words, going to be a nice weekend. then a bit warmer for much of next week, devin. >> whenever i see a 90 in the forecast, i kind of cringe. it's a little too hot for me. i kind of like, you know, upper 70s. >> yes. >> low 80s. >> i know you're a south bay guy, too. when san jose does it, i could understand. i could understand the cringe on that one. won't last long, but tuesday you'll be there, unfortunately. >> sweating it out. >> yeah. all right. my favorite story of the
6:20 am
morning, a lot of drivers are going electric. it is good for the environment and, frankly, cheaper than gas at the moment. harley-davidson is jumping into the electric market but with a change to the iconic engine rumble. kpix took a test ride on one of the new electric bikes in sacramento. >> oh, my god, this is happening. >> reporter: when is the last time you did something for the first time? >> i have been waiting almost a decade for this moment. >> reporter: it took a while, but harley-davidson finally brought their electric motorcycles to market, called live wire. >> wow. >> reporter: even in the slowest beginner mode, the bike can make your heart pound. >> oh wow. >> reporter: 100 horsepower, 84-foot pounds of torque, 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds. >> see what this baby has got. here we go.
6:21 am
wow. oh yeah. >> reporter: top speed is capped at 110 miles per hour. there is no reason to doubt that. harley-davidson has been developing live wire for the better part of a decade. in 2014, we tested a prototype that actually had the sound of a jet engine added to the motorcycle. for harley-davidson, sound is a part of the brand and culture. so this bike doesn't have the artificial sound added. one of the main criticisms of electric bikes is that they feel dead. this one has what they call a pulse, haptic feedback. it has a slight vibration and makes it feel alive. responsiveness of an electric vehicle is just intoxicating. >> i am so excited you had an opportunity to get in one of the vehicles. >> reporter: professor billy riggs at the university of san francisco is an expert on smart transportation. says harley-davidson's entry
6:22 am
into the electric motorcycle market will have a ripple effect. >> i think it means, you know, electric motorcycles are here to stay, like evs are here to stay. personal electric vehicle can be astronomical. it means we'll see more of these products coming to market. >> reporter: live wire retails for $23,000. range is 140 miles. quiet, smooth, blazingly fast, and not cheap. this is not your dad's chopper. >> particularly young segment that may not be interested in the noise and kind of the m tradition that harley has gone after. there is a huge market opportunity. no shame in enjoying what you drive. >> reporter: kiet do, kpix 5. good morning from the j center floor. here's what's ahead in sports. bay area baseball teams in action last night.

the rim, so i was talking to myself. i don't know who heard it, but it's a good way to finish the game. we got to take that to game three. >> dallas came out and just punched us, you know. you kind of know it's coming. we needed to get poised and get the game under control. we felt confident that if we did that, they wouldn't make 15 threes in the second half. >> half mile away at oracle, giants went to extras against the padres. here's how it happened. two outs, bottom of the ninth. wi will -- wilmer flores. manny machado at the plate. rips a double into left field. that sent in the first of two runs in the extras for the padres. the giants, they could not counter. san diego wins, 8-7. giants, 22-16 on the season. over to anaheim, where the
