looking out there. the bay bridge already backing up. you can see traffic slowing down as you work your way from the toll plaza parking lot into san francisco, getting crowded there. what a difference a day makes. yesterday we didn't see anything like this. it was very quiet due to the holiday but now everyone is back to work after the long holiday weekend. busy on the freeways, on 880 through hayward southbound. getting onto the san mateo bridge, wind advisory in effect for the san mateo bridge and getting crowded westbound 101. crews made quick work of a pair of small fires that broke out in sew know ma county and santa cruz mountains. and a fire that started over the weekend is expected to smolder another couple of days. as we mark the unofficial start of summer, fire crews are warning people to be careful with the outdoor cooking and
power tools and maintain cars that can throw sparks. the deadline for weed abatement is set today. >> this is to reduce and prevent the spread of wildfires. we were there as a tractor services company got to work. >> reporter: this is important work for pete, he's been doing this about three decades and knows the importance of minimizing fire hazards with 300 accounts yearly he knows through the abatement efforts property owners can have a safer fire season. for three months out of the year, that's the sound he's been hearing every single morning. pete ferrerra was the owner of triple-a tractor service in the east bay. >> 30 years. >> reporter: for that many years this has been one of his jobs. >> anything from the back yard to the back 40. >> reporter: this 40-acre property will take pete three days with his tractor. it's one of hundreds he's been
doing since mid april. >> this year was an odd year because january to march no rain at all, and april we got rain which is usually when we start working. >> reporter: property owners hire pete to manage weeds or wild plants that are flammable and could create a fire hazard. his job is to prevent or reduce the spread of fire from one property to another with fire breaks. >> we know it's loud and messy but better to have noise than fire and smoke. >> reporter: in contra costa county, the deadline is today. other areas have similar deadlines but they're all different. we caught pete at one of his accounts. sometimes the weed abatement is done by hand. >> you have to give yourself a safe zone, protect yourself, your neighbors. >> reporter: his advice, don't wait too long, if you do. >> if you wait two months past the deadline they're going to come after you. >> reporter: they will.
he's talking about the fire department there, get this done. we know fire departments don't want to come find you and i'm sure you don't want to pay either. again, each fire district is different with what their requirements are. this morning, santa clara county county investigators are looking into a hang gliding accident that left a man dead and a woman critically hurt. video from the scene shows damage to the hang glider's wing. it's unclear if that caused the crash or was the result of it. video shows flames erupting at a west oakland furniture store in a broad daylight arson attack. the family-run business is now struggling to rebuild during what would normally be a busy memorial day weekend. >> fire! >> reporter: it took seconds for flames to rip through couches
and smoke to fill the furniture store in oakland. moments earlier, video shows a man casually walking in around 2:00 p.m. on may 15th. he appears to pour accelerant on couches before setting them ablaze and running out the door. >> i started screaming fire, run out and warn my cousin in the warehouse and her partner. once i hit here i realized shoot i have to put out the fire. i called 911, put the phone in my pocket. looked for fire extinguishers, i used one and the fire was there still. >> reporter: he was able to figure out how to put out the flames to save his store. he said it took him about 10 minutes to reach a 911 dispatcher and firefighters arrived shortly after. while most of the furniture on the floor may look fine, virtually every piece has smoke damage.
he estimates damages total up to $200,000. >> we're getting back to pre-covid levels slowly and now nothing. >> reporter: david said he'll have to close his store for about two months to get things back in order. his family has owned the outlet furniture since 2006. >> right now it's a hard time to get furniture. we've worked hard to get -- we have to plan like five, six months in advance for furniture to come in because of supply chain issues. >> reporter: his workers will temporarily be out of a job. normally memorial day weekend is good for business. meanwhile, oakland police said it's investigating the arson and the motive is unknown. it's 6:07, still ahead on kpix 5 and streaming on cbs news bay area. >> the last holiday weekend travelers are returning home from road trips and it was no vacation for wallets. how gas prices hit new record

the meeting starts at 1:30 today. this morning as holiday weekend travelers are coming back home, experts are predicting the record prices are about to get worse. this was the scene yesterday at one of the busiest gas stations in marin county. the gas prices are well below the average of $6.15 but above the national average of $4.61 with the gloomy outlook on gas prices those we talked to said it's time to change. >> we had to cut back because of the gas. it's time to buy an electric car. >> i'm on the market for a new car. and i definitely will not buy a car that isn't a hybrid or an electric hybrid. >> gas buddy predicts a 50 cent increase to prices in the next few weeks. right now an outbreak of severe weather that hit the midwest on monday is causing major problems in south dakota. and a similar scene in minnesota

days. the most severe thing, the red flag warning in effect until 8:00 p.m. tonight. we are dealing with relative humidity. we'll touch on that in a second. but the winds aren't as bad as last time we had a red flag warning, in solano county alone the conditions are looking more favorable today than the past. it's still a dry set up so expecting 10% relative humidity in the evening hours. the recovery process in the overnight hours won't be too bad but why we've been dealing with the temperatures above average and the sunny skies, high pressure has been ridging its way in from the south, that's warming us up and changing the direction of the winds behind that is an area of low pressure developing diving into the pacific northwest which cools us off headed into the weekend. add clouds, and a chance of showers too. you can see it circulating in
the pacific pushing its way into the northwest as we speak. that's going to change the weather as we wrap up this week and head into next week. for now, sunny skies, 80s in the forecast for us, santa clara for us, more 80s, even 90s near fairfield and brentwood, into the bay, temperatures a hair above average. s a leto getting up to 68 degrees today. as we extend up north it's a similar trend. let's look at the next seven days. june gloom is around the corner, partly cloudy skies as we wrap up the week and head into the weekend. more rain on the way headed into sunday, just .01 for now on the models but we're keeping an eye on it. as for the north bay and east bay, starting with the 80s in the forecast, potentially 60s at times in the weekend so cooling

so far so good through this portion, headed north of here, it's going to get busier but not our slowest approach to the bridge. the slowest approach is off the freeway, westbound. you can see the bay bridge toll plaza, the sun is bright. it's backed up beyond the 880 overpass, slow and go here. 580 and 880 still looking pretty good as far as approaching the bay bridge. golden gate bridge, slow spot. things quiet out of petaluma, santa rosa. and we are still dealing with delays for our super commuter route, this is business as usual. the red there, that's for commuters out of tracie. slow and go conditions as well. northbound 101, there is a trouble spot as well. making it extra busy for that ride. out of the south bay gets better the rest of the way into san

covid cases are up in the bay area, forcing many to think about putting their masks back on. >> reporter: in the past few weeks you may have noticed more people around us have gotten covid but a specialist said cases are going up right now in the bay area but there are a couple of things to keep in mind. let's look at the curb of cases in san francisco. it's going up and the number of cases out in the community is probably way higher than what's being reported because of the amount of people taking those at-home covid tests. that's why the next graph is important. it's the number of people hospitalized with covid. you can see in that curve for san francisco, covid hospitalizations are rising. >> hospitalizations will definitely continue to go up, particularly after this memorial day weekend with lots of festivals and people moving around. graduations, et cetera. but i don't think that we'll ever get to that place where we started in january. >> reporter: the doctor said
there are reasons for that. he said people who got omicron in the previous surge are more protected from ending up in the hospital with severe disease. not to say that doesn't mean you can't get reinfected. because of new variants you can get reinfected but you likely won't get very sick. as cases go up, what can you do? what we have been doing, dr. chin-hong says keep the mask handy, use testing before events with multiple households gathering. i'm jocelyn moran, kpix 5. the world health organization said it's unlikely a recent monkeypox outbreak will lead to a global pandemic. but there is now a window to curb rising cases. it's not the same as covid-19 and the risk to the general public is low. alth experts have been puzzled by a surge of monkeypox.
