9:03 am
precursor yesterday and they went ahead and did it last night and they're still learning curve saw some people this morning without their masks on and no, they were not approached the city of benicia. they won't take it. you they will try to educate the public on why they believe this is important and they're pointing out to the numbers that the covid-19 cases are going up now. the solano county health director. he was at last night's meeting. he doesn't believe the mask will make a significant difference, which is why he's not ordering a county wide mask mandate. but the city of benicia, they have the power to go ahead and do this. got reaction from many people. it seems like a lot of people are on board. >> i think is unhurt. and it was taking precautionary measures until you know, it's like we're in the clear a little more so. think it's okay. >> what do you say to people who say it's tyranny its oppression that don't tell me what to do. >> everyone's got got we have.

9:13 am
9:14 am
9:15 am
>> 9.14 right now. before head out the door. what because you're crazy about the krispy kreme deal with the vaccinations. remember, did you ever get the donuts. the free one i ended up for a couple couple trips. got. my for what the team does. here's the deal. they're doubling it now. what? did you just starting on monday for a whole week. now you get to a day. week, though. yeah. starts next monday. and it goes for like a week ago that was inserted you're going to started okay. right weeks this for haha. well, it is going to be a good day today to pay for some donuts and celebrate what will be our last day of good weather. >> because after today we're working our way back to some heat and some haze looking likely along with this building. he later in the
9:16 am
week. now, this morning, what we do have out there is some low gray. what you're not looking at the smoke that's marine layer much as we've been seeing so far this week. we've had the great mornings, but as you know, has cleared up towards our afternoon hours and offered us some really comfortable days. air quality remains really good across the bay area we saw lake tahoe with the worst air quality in north america as we see so much for a smoke being put up by fires across the state. but especially that fire burning along highway 50 air quality map showing you green that indicates good this morning. something that we can expect this afternoon are a couple of moderate pockets but really not all that bad. high pressure is about to scoot on overhead replacing this dip in the jet stream that is spared us. the haze and also spared us the heat lately. it will also replace this cool onshore breeze with some more stagnant and sinking air. that's going to allow smoke to gradually work its way back into the picture. now, as for today, daytime highs, staying comfortable for another one. it 60's for most of our
9:17 am
coastal spots 70's for most of our bayshore areas. burlingame at 73 san carlos in redwood city each at 76 south bay temperatures also mostly in the 70's spread of 60's 70's 80's across the east bay, pleasanton and livermore 82 with cocker to 83 oakland, a nice and cool 68 degrees while vacaville are very warm. a spy 87 santa rosa through nevado in the 70's. here's your look ahead at our next 7 days. so tomorrow already warming things up, likely to see some haze on the horizon friday saturday and sunday are going to be our hottest days of the forecast. and i know that smack dab in the middle of the weekend. i want to plan your weekend around our inland heat and also the haze that's likely to return coastal areas will likely have some better air quality comparatively at least. and certainly some nicer temperatures with highs. only in the 60's to 70's reyna john of some accidents and some slower spots to tell you about out there driving in concord southbound to 42. >> south of salon away. now lanes are still open, but you're just seeing that
9:18 am
delayed slow down because of that accident looks like we have some improvement along highway 4, westbound east of palo verde road in hayworth that accident there. another one southbound 8.80, and will pull road in hayward, not seeing much of a delay along to 38 as you're traveling there heading into the city a little under 60 minutes for your drive time. 5, 1880, starting to see a slight improvement of what we were if you're traveling crockett down to the maze will take you a little under 17 minutes to make that drive headed across towards the peninsula back down under 13. so things look great. there. and a hot spot down here in gilroy westbound highway one 52 west of one. oh, one northbound all lanes still currently closed highway. 25 is a good option around that daryn. james, back to you. >> time to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black joining us live is always to make sense of what we're seeing. and rob, as i glance at the major indices. anyway, we're green not by a whole lot positive. what are you seeing?
9:19 am
yesterday. all-time highs on the s and p 500 this morning. we're at all-time highs again. it's more of the getting a little tiring were looking for a little cooling off period, but it's just not comment. the house is getting ready to pass a 2.5 trillion dollar budget. any one 0.2 trillion dollar infrastructure. the senate has already done their job on some of those bills. there will be reconciliation issues going forward. but we've got a lot of stimulus coming over the next 5 to 10 years. these direct payments. so not quite as do see the system you know, last year, stimulus delta get this, james. they're raising health insurance for anyone who does not have the covid shot. a $200 a month. and dustin johnson said that their booster shot doesn't he give you more immunities covid delta, but you have to wait until after 8 months that first one shot vaccination get a second one. we're talking about that delta story earlier this morning. i think that probably more and more airlines are going to get on board. >> as we're now getting full
9:20 am
approval by the fda for some of these vaccines. let's talk about wildfires as we were chatting about that this morning to there every summer they continue to get, you know, bigger and bigger, it seems and that's got to come in a financial cost for california. what are you seeing in some of the numbers. well, first and foremost, tahoe is getting help with their tourist economy. but let's talk about california wildfire budget. they went 1.2 billion into the emergency fund last year year just ended june 30th. >> they have the day today. budget of about 3 billion dollars per year. that's going higher every single year. that's just day to day. and they had that 1.2 billion to was about 4.2 billion last year. the emergency find covers things like over time, the big planes that carry water, water tenders. extra equipment, anything that basically last over day or is it contained in the first effort becomes emergency fund usage. so it's it's it's bad.
9:21 am
last time we had a year under a 100 million in the emergency fund was 2000, 10 and a little history research back to 2000, 10, 2000, 11 was that was a wet rainy season. so pray for rain. if you pray r a hope for a hope, i guess. >> yeah. i don't dance well, stuff try mustered up our rain chance at some point. see, that doesn't help. and lastly, you're saying you're seeing some signs not maybe not for the bay area but some signs nationally of this out of control housing market may be getting back to normal. what do you think? >> well, that this is the first signs and existing inventory for existing home up 7% month over month. inventory good sales increased 2%. so inventory build faster than sales and existing in new home sales inventory was up 5% want to brand new spanking home. if sales were up only one percent. so that means more options for people. that's good. not a sign that is, you know, completely go away. we've got about 2.6 months of
9:22 am
existing inventory. that means higher prices. but with new homes about 6.2 months inventory. so it takes 6.2 months from today, 6 months from now, it would be out of inventory. so if i think the home prices on the new it should start to sideways in theory. if trends continue last year we saw a 2% rise in july year over year in home prices and incomes are that much so you can see the problem here. all right. well, sideways is good for people saving up to buy that house, gives them a little bit a chance to catch up. >> with those rising prices. but in any event. thank you so much, rob, for tracking that for us. and we'll chat again tomorrow. let rob know what you want to talk about. there's a topic that interests you reach out to him. facebook, twitter, e-mail of directly be happy to answer your question and maybe even address it here live on our air. rob, thank you. we'll see it.

9:31 am
the days of 80's as our warmest of daytime highs and a switch in wind direction. does open the door for some poor air quality to gradually move our direction. and it looks like that could be the case tomorrow for sure. >> looking outside this morning. we do have the low gray something we've got used to so far this week. but as we've known after the low gray so far this week we've seen nice and sunny afternoons and really comfortable temperatures. that's what we're going to hold on to today. visibility is not an issue right now. we have a couple of lower visibility spots this morning in the north bay that have since cleared out 50's and 60's for our current temps light jacket kind of stuff as you venture out there before really comfortable day. only one more of these comfortable ones before heat and haze builds back in reyna jumping so that we have another hot spot this time. it is 92 that westbound. >> connector ramp to one oh, one south. all lanes are closed. they're currently after that traffic collision. if this was earlier, we would see a delay along 90 to the
