welcome back. it is 5:43. yesterday morning officers saw a duck frantically quacking at a
5:44 am
storm drain near oracle park. they took a closer look and found baby ducklings stuck down the drain. the officers removed the grate and carefully pulled them out, reuniting the fluffy ducklings -- oh, they're so cute -- with their mother, who led her children back to the san francisco bay. so ghlad they're okay. now to the famous falcon family perched high above the uc berkeley campus. >> we've followed the story of annie the falcon and new partner alden for weeks now. you have a chance to help name her growing chicks. check out the video from the cal falcon cam in their nest, alden a surrogate father stepping up to feed annie's two chicks, one male and one female. they've grown a lot since they hatched at the beginning of the month. the chicks had a rare visit from humans friday for their banding and they weren't very happy. lots of expletives there i
5:45 am
think. the falcons looked very upset when the humans plucked them from their nest, but they were quickly banded and measured and their genders were confirmed. the little guys don't have a name yet so they're holding an online contest for to you help name them. you could send your ideas on their social media pages, the winners will be announced next friday. >> i was thinking they looked a lot bigger. they're almost as big as their mom from that perspective. >> they've grown pretty fast, they're talking pretty fast running away from mom, right? many celebrate memorial day, surveys continue to show a lot of people don't really like the season. >> i don't understand this.29% americans say summer is their favorite season, this is only a slight drop compared to previous years, in 2013 the same poll had summer and spring tied at 33%. okay. >> it depends where you live, too. >> true. >> if you're in a hot place like florida, summers are pretty intense.

a live look at chase center where the warriors will face jayson tatum and the boston celtics in the nba finals on thursday. the celtics advanced to the finals after winning game seven against the miami heat last night. >> it was a battle from the jump as jimmy butler and the heat would not go quietly, but they're played every minute of game seven after scoring 47 points two days earlier and he showed little signs of slowing up. he finished with a team high of 35 points. tatum responded with 26 of his own and the celtics needed each one. it came down to the wire, but with the chance to take the lead, miami fell short, sending boston to the finals. >> it feels amazing. finally got over the hump. but we can't be too happy, we have the golden state warriors waiting for us. >> we played against them a ton of times over the years. we're going to have our work cut out for us. we're a confident group as well that's battled everybody, all the big boys this year but going to be a good challenge that we're up for.>>t is going to be
5:47 am
finals series. the celtics will visit san francisco for game one t thursday at 6:00 bp.m. i am ready for it. >> the green coming to town but it's all good. it's all good. we're ready to show 'em up. >> yep. let's check on your forecast and traffic on this monday. >> we begin with first alert meteorologist jessica burch. a lot of people getting out for the memorial day holiday. how is it going to look? >> yes, they should. it is beautiful out there right now, as we extend into this afternoon, it's a stunning day for us no matter where you live. temperatures ranging a little bit above average. the winds will kick up as we head into the afternoon but it's memorial day. get out there, enjoy the beautiful conditions. take a live look from the salesforce tower cam, the sun is starting to rise, 5:50 a.m. is our official sunrise. as we extend into the afternoon, daytime highs upper 70s, 60s along the bay, 50s at the coast. the winds will kick up pretty quickly, i cannot stress that enough, as we head into this afternoon. daytime highs throughout the
5:48 am
rest of our local areas, napa getting up to 78 degrees. 75 down in san jose. livermore 76. this is what i mean when we're talking about the onshore flow. they'll continue to push in from the west as we head into the afternoon hours, anywhere from 20 to 30 miles per hour just around 2:00. it stays consistent as we head into the evening though so keep that in mind. that's the big reason why solano county is under a red flag warning starting at 11:00 a.m. extending throughout this afternoon and ending tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. it's a big reason why i wanted to highlight the winds. we're warming up as we head into the next couple days. the huge ridge will start weakening as we head into monday, tuesday, even wednesday but pushes its way into our coastline giving us above-average temperatures for the next couple days. behind that is an area of low pressure, you could see that right there. hooer is another depiction of that. you could see it spiraling right now, that will continue to develop as we head into the late portions of our week, bringing us cooler temperatures to wrap up this work week. here is that in full force. we warm up by tuesday, wednesday, average out as we
5:49 am
wrap up the week, partly cloudy skies returning to the forecast no matter whether you live in san francisco, oakland, even up in our northern areas, too, the north bay seeing a chance of rain as we extend all the way into the weekend, partly cloudy skies really sticking around for us as we wrap up this week but it is beautiful nonetheless, and we are going to keep you updated in the weather center. for now, back over to you. let's look at the roadways if you are getting ready to get out and about this morning, so is our photojournalist brian kiley, up early on this memorial day and so far so good on our freeways, this is 238 heading toward 808 through castro valley. things are moving at the limit with no delays or issues, and even with the stalled big rig off to the side we're not seeing any brake lights or a backup here. it's a pretty light commute this morning if you're getting up early, getting on the freeways, right now is a good time to be out there, really no major issues. the only thing we're tracking is a minor trouble spot along the peninsula, as we jump to our maps now, a heads up if you're headed along 101, we have reports of a trouble spot there, we'll show you that in a second,
5:50 am
101 in san mateo westbound 92 right at that hills ddale exit there is a trouble spot with a lane blocked, a couple lanes due to a deer in the roadway, apparently the crash was involving that deer so unfortunately there is some activity there as they clear this out of the roadway. 92 definitely a little sluggish because of the 101, taking a look at that quiet there as well for the most part once you're past this area. taking a look at traffic elsewhere, if you are headed toward any bay area bridges this morning, a live look at the bay bridge not bad at all. very quiet and hopefully it stays that way for most of the day, of course, later on this afternoon after 1:00 this will likely look different as folks head home for the holiday weekend, if you're coming from the maze into the city, under ten minutes for your travel time. pretty easy breezy there, easy breezy on the golden gate as well, quiet conditions out here, not a lot of cars out there. it's nice everyone is sleeping in. southbound 101 from 37 down into the city, only about 19 minutes right now, and look at the travel times, everything in the green so no major delays or
