morning, but they actually showed up at around 5.30, or so because many of them came from great distances and also because of parking problems, they actually had to be bussed into this area. there dozens of family and friends and of course, colleagues that showed up to the rail yard. here's video of that ceremony. this took place deep inside. the railyard took place at 06:30am, in the morning. not an accident. james. that's the time when the gunman came into the rail yard burst into a union meeting and started opening fire on his fellow co-workers, ultimately killing 9 people before the santa clara county sheriff's deputies, which is literally about 100 yards away. they sprinted to the scene. they got into the area surrounding them or at least got close enough to him where he felt cornered. and then ultimately he took his own life. a lot of people still obviously remembering what happened. their family and friends and colleagues of theirs got a
chance to talk to them on their way out. very kind of them to stop and talk to me. here's what they had to say about one year later. can you believe it's been a year? i mean, so much has happened. you know, i can't its own. it's just >> and i really fast but then in other ways, the healing part of it, it's it's not been really fast. so it's just a lot to take. it's going to take a very long and we just wanted to be here for each other and show our love and support. >> ok, james, and our viewers, i want to show you close the deputies were. you're seeing a live shot. you see that gray building right there. that is the santa clara county sheriff's department. those officers were there. many of them were on patrol, will move at 6.30, in the morning. they sprinted down to this location
here. in fact, i see a lot of them pulling into their own parking lot for the deputy's office. that's the real your look at how close it is to this particular scene here. obviously the shooting so traumatic that it took a long time and many of them will admit things are still not back to normal. 3 months. it was so traumatic 3 months. that's how long the rail system, the real service was offline. and then there was a building. and we did this story a couple of weeks ago. james, you might recall that there was a building where a lot of the shots ring out so traumatic for the co-workers to come back there. that vta ultimately decided let's demolished a building. let's start you too many bad memories of that particular may be able said this was a good ceremony. obviously it's a good chance for them to cry to hug. >> and obviously, to remember those no longer with. and hopefully >> to even if just a little bit. thank you very much. well, at 9, 0, 4, let's also

because we need a little discussion on this. our defense needs some work. i was just watching the tv like screaming at it because our defense was allowing luka doncic's to continue with his 3 pointers. one after the other. after the other. and was like you guys, let's get this to stop. and they kept going. i mean, it was 23 pointers for the mass and that's how they did it. that was their strategy. but now we know what their game plan is and we're going to stop them from doing it again. steph and klay are going to get back in it. i mean, they do so well at home. they are going to kill it. now tipoff is at 6 o'clock 8 tonight. so keep that in mind. if you want to be out here, thrive city, the doors open at 4.30. so you've got to get out here early because the lines get long in this game. as i said, last game is critical. but again, we let them have one. we're not going to let them have another. this for the first time since 2019. so we needed james. we've got

>> welcome back. 9.15, on this thursday morning. big changes from yesterday in your forecast and some big changes from yesterday in your drought monitor to this is a reminder of where we were at to start the season. we had exceptional drought. that's the worst category of drought all across the bay area. we'vee
helped out temporarily by at least some early seasons as of this past week, most of the bay area was still in severe to extreme drought and only one percent of the state was in exceptional drought. unfortunately, the latest update, your drought monitor is showing the return of exceptional drought to much of the central valley and hoping that this isn't a sign of more and more that deeper red returning to our neck of the woods. like we did see last summer. now, as far as we go right now, at least we're not holding on to the extreme heat that we had been seeing nor the critical fire danger. fire danger does remain a big coecern and your memorial day weekend. but we're not going to be spending it in the triple digits nor even the 90's. temperatures today already around 20 degrees cooler than we had them yesterday. winds from the coast pushing on into the bay will help in putting that ocean cool. there are right there into our a neighbor's towards the central valley areas like brent would vacaville livermore. that's a
triple digits yesterday will fall into the upper 70's today. high pressure ridge outs cold front moving in. this is also going to keep a steadily cold as we move through the holiday weekend. so all this is making free, really nice set up for getting out and about enjoying some 70's all the way through the weekend today, partly cloudy, you will see is plenty of brightness between those clouds tomorrow. skies grow a little bit clear. temperatures stay around the same as they will be today. and then saturday and sunday. get here with even cooler temperatures yet. and the potential of some light snow flurries above 9,000 feet in the sierra. some light showers up there mixed in with those flurries higher up. as far as the bay goes will remain dry. but we are going to remain cool. so that is a plus as far as fire danger and just our own personal enjoyment of the forecast coast, 60's and 70's along the bay shore today saying carlos, a beautiful 75 palo alto at 76 south bay. temperatures staying below 80 degrees as we will for most of the east bay, too. we've only got one spot on the map that
will hit 80 today and that will be antioch right at 80 degrees. 70 at really nice, 70 up in santa rosa tomorrow, right around the same as today. cooling even further into saturday and sunday. james. time now to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black. joining us on a morning robbery or the dow's up like up 500 points. i'm feeling good feeling. we've got weeks and weeks of bad news. >> should i be feeling i getting ahead of the getting ahead of my skis. >> you're a little heavier. so summer is right around the corner. according memorial and and people in the financial institutions tend to go on vacation. there's less volume. we still have a little above 100 that's going to be problematic until it gets below 100. it is a little bit of a dead cat bounces little bit of a bear market rally. whatever you want to call a little bit of a reprieve retailers did well macy's dollar general and dollar store dollar general. probably tony, people are going a
little bit frugal with their spending. hurricane season starts now as well. and john will tell you this would be the 7th above average hurricane season. we don't want hurricanes hit. the gulf are kind of want them to hit miami. the atlantic side versus the gulf side again because of oil and good news out of southwest and jetblue. they both raise revenue guidance for the 2nd quarter games which implies we're. we're out there spending rather shopping around the fly and we're doing business. it's good. >> ok, well, what's not good is fact, as of as of the grocery store the other day and picking up some hot dogs and gearing up for this there quite a bit more expensive than i remembered at a feeling that's going to be across the board for the rest of the stuff i need to get. >> yeah. you're picking up a hot dog, my spouse picks up not dogs. they're not side. they're half a foot foamy. so the memorial day and picnics, barbecues. you're right. 75%

see 100,000 new cops. >> on capitol hill, it appears very unlikely that any piece of police reform legislation can get the 60 votes. it needs to clear the u.s. senate in washington. alexandra limon. >> thank you, alex. it is 9.38. still ahead on the kron 4 morning news. gas prices continue to climb as we get closer to the memorial day weekend. we do have a few tips on how you might save a dollar or 2. we'll have more on that coming up.
