6:04 am
woman who was with the grandmother at the time the grandmother was watching brand and she was off loading groceries with brandon inside the unit. that woman was with the grandmother. they interviewed her and that woman's story kept changing, according to investigators. so she was also arrested. there was a 3rd person. they're not going into details about that particular person, including not even the gender that person to 3 people arrested altogether. they say that they're still working on the case. but if you're wondering this morning and you're drinking your coffee, what was the motive? well, we have the same question so far. the san jose police department and the fbi, they brought in the fbi to help. they had the news conference and both agencies did not go into the details on why anybody would go into an apartment unit and kidnapped a 3 month-old baby boy. but the bottom line is that boy is safe this morning. >> all right. happy to have a happy ending to that. at least. thank you. will.

allowed to build more housing. >> interesting. all right. 6.38 is the time. let's talk about the california drought. it's actually forcing. >> bay area cities to make some big changes now, this is a look at the most recent map and you can see all of the bay area is in. >> a severe drought level and now east bay mud. they voted to put new limits into place. yeah. and there will be tougher penalties to for households that go over those limits with crawford's theresa to explain. >> we're going into a stage 2 drought. that 'eans that customers are going to be required, not asked to conserve water effective immediately. east bay municipal utility district customers must. >> start conserving water or else face penalties. the board approved the move into stage 2 drought at its tuesday meeting. district spokesperson andrea polk breaks down. what happens next? >> we're asking them to conserve water at a level of temper and that is district-wide not individually. some people can
6:40 am
save more. and some people have already taken, you know, significant measures. polk says that the board stopped short of putting in a drought surcharge or rate hike to help pay for extra water supplies due to the drought. tabling that tell a meeting in may. but the board will start an excessive water use. panel. the ordinance that puts a limit of slightly more than 1600 gallons per household. and if you go over that daily rate is $2 per unit. it's definitely time to take that route seriously. so it was tempting back in october and december to think that we were out of the are dry january march. certainly polk says all of this is not to punish households, but face a reality. 3 year statewide drought, i would say the most important thing for is that what they do really matters what they do counts collectively. we really can make a difference. and we must

6:46 am
midst of this dip in the jet stream that's bringing us this cool down today is going to be a brisk feel through the day with breezy conditions and highs in the 60's to low 70's. a few passing clouds here in the middle of the day. but for the most part, today is going to be mostly sunny one tomorrow. skies clear out a little bit more, but just as cool, just as brisk as today. so today, tomorrow, your light jacket kind of days before a weekend warm-up. that takes us right back into the 70's. even close to the 80's by saturday of this weekend. as for today, definitely nothing close to 80's out. there will be in the 50's and 60's for sf in 50's right along the coastline. temperatures for bayshore cities mostly in the 60's foster city saying carlos down through palo alto, each at 64 south bay, temperatures close to 70's but hanging out in the 60's. fremont union city's snow at 64 pleasanton oakland at 65 well. conquered over to get up into solano and much of napa counties in the midst of some 70's again today, some of our warmest spots this

6:48 am
things are moving at the limit in the south bay one-on-one. 85 traveling into menlo park. 33 minutes to 18. 82 moving along pretty nicely. and to 37 17, no accidents. there. the golden gate bridge. 37 to the totals about a 20 minute drive darya. james, back to you. thanks a lot. at and the giants host the a's in the bay bridge series. yes. and the warriors are coerced, prepared for game 5 against the nuggets tonight. >> where you are going? oh, yeah. warriors blue plan that jason this with with more. what we can >> game one at oracle park and check it out. an aids fan in enemy territory, enjoying those not shows. >> let's go to the top of the first no score. it carlos read on he was dealing high heat right there. he says down stephen piscotty to end the ending. bottom of the second, wilmer flores at the plate.
6:49 am
looking like it's out of there. but you know, that wind in oracle park. hit the warning track and brandon crawford comes into score is a one. nothing game. bottom of the 3rd giants up 2 to one to offer. flores now. the winning goal. keep this one down. that is long gone. three-run home run that extends the lead to for his 4th rbi of the game. of the 5th 5, 1, done. he is still doing it. look at him. just freeze. tony kemp. get out ending right there. he went 6 innings of one-run ball. he struck out 9 and this was the kill shot. austin slater high and deep to right. it goes off the top of the fence. the look at it in. they called it a home run as they should. the giants. they go on to win 8 to 2 set. the tone came out, throwing strikes >> even when the a's which
6:50 am
they did all the way through the game, put really good high quality about on took good swings, fouled off some pitches and ran pitch count up. he continued to attack the strike zone. so he set the tone from a crisp standpoint. it was it was crisp right out the gates. and we had some big bats. and think we played good all around baseball game. we're 4 games into golden state's post season run and steph has not started a game. >> the reason for that was because staff was coming off of that foot injury and was on a minute restriction. so staff didn't want to come off the bench to ensure that he could and quarters on the floor. i should say he wanted to come off the bench so he can ensure he ended quarters on the floor. >> but stay, steve kerr said that minute restriction. well, it's over. that mean staff will in all likelihood, bree enter the starting 5. so someone is going to be odd man out either jordan poole or combine looney that we're relegated to a bench role. not always the easiest thing to do, especially when you have ego of a pro athlete. and i don't say that as a slight,
6:51 am
you need somewhat of an ego to make it to the top one percent of your craft, which is every nba basketball player. but will that be an issue will step have to say something to the guy who ends up booted from that starting lineup. steph does not think so. >> no, but it. its essence of who we are says sense of how we >> do things and understand every season, every situation you find yourself and you had to just make the right call in terms of what's in the spirit of winning and getting yourself and your team, the best shot at winning. that's should be able to handle whatever decisions or whatever role you have to kind of assume based on what the answer that question us. >> very exciting tonight 07:00pm tipoff time again. so it's going to be a late win was for us anyway. >> we'll be watching ball, but don't know. goes to bed was set at 7 o'clock.
