pulled out a vest and what appeared to be numb chucks. ktvu spoke to the parents and they told us they are not sure if they can afford to bury their son at this point. ktvu, channel 2 news. it could now be months before gay and lesbian couples in california can marry. a federal appeals court put same sex weddings on hold indefinitely while it considers the constitutionality of proposition 8. arguments are now scheduled for the week of december 6. and a ruling in this case is unlikely before the end of this year. reaction to the ruling is mixed around the bay area. even though same sex weddings are now on hold, the plaintiffs in the case say they're pleased panel agreed to expedite the hearing for appeal. san francisco mayor newsome also says he's satisfied by the time line but calls the decision bittersweet. >> a lot of hearts are broken and a lot of families are
disappointed. certainly the city's family is disappointed because we were ready to go. >> those who oppose applaud the decision to grant an emergency stay. >> delighted that the appeals court has decided to uphold the votes of seven million californians and allow this to be argued at the appeals court in december. >> some attorneys argue allowing same sex weddings to take place during the appeals process would have created legal chaos if the ban is eventually upheld. and you can find more about the ruling on our channel 2 website. go to ktvu.com and click on the gay marriage tab on the front page. san francisco police are reviewing surveillance video this morning to try and identify the person who stabbed a passenger on a muni bus. it happened just before 8:00 last night at sunset boulevard on a number 29 bus. police stopped the bus at 25th and fullton but the suspect had already gotten off the bus and fled. the victim was taken to the

>> right. someone has to separate the wheat from the class so to speak. >> no ellen, no simon. >> good morning everybody. maybe it's the show producer. let's go outside and take a look at the commute highway 101 at 580 not a bad commute. no major problems here as you drive down to the middle of marin county. also this morning's commute is going to be okay if you are on the westbound bay bridge coming into the city. you can see traffic continues to move along very well. and if you're driving on the peninsula highway 101 and 280 traffic's looking good. as i check my twitter we have not had a lot of cal tran delays. we had a couple delays really bad two weeks ago and the first way i found out about it was from people on the train and they were angry and sending angry tweets. but nothing today. nothing for the last week or so. 6:05. here's steve. angry tweets? >> that's right. >> that's not nice. fog and mist this morning.
sunny today but cooler as temperatures come down with a pretty good sea breeze kicking in. looks like another cool weekend on tap as another system drops into the north. right now we have an area of low pressure right there weak as it may be shows up on the water vapor site. doesn't on the infrared. but as that moves in that is just taking the fog bank and kicking up the sea breeze as well. 54 san francisco right now. 58 at noon. yesterday's high was 62. temperatures coming down inland. can't really go too much farther down on the coast although santa cruz reported 77 degrees. that's the warmest i've seen in a long time. 74 today. there's the 61 at san francisco. walnut creek 85 yesterday. 79 today. oakland from 70 down to 66. and san jose 79 drop you five to 74 degrees. mt. tamalpais and some higher elevations still running on the warm side. low 70s. but i suspect as the low ushers
in from the north cooler temperatures. crockett, san carlos running the warmest at 57. stanford in there as well. 90 at this hour in las vegas. 86 palm springs and a cool day along the coast in southern california. 56 sacramento and the bell that breeze is up to 30 miles an hour at travis and vacaville has a sea breeze. that tells you that things are taking shape because that low right there weakens as it moves in but doesn't stop the fog from reinforcing itself from that low. and as that low begins to move in that picks up the sea breeze and it's going to be a sunny day inland after the fog burns off but cooler. four, eight, maybe ten degrees cooler. seeing wind right now with fog about 10 or 15 or 20 miles an hour. fog, drizzle, sunny, breezy, cooler away from the coast. 50s, 60s, drop santa cruz about ten. i think there's too much fog there today. 56 oakland. 80 concord. santa rosa, san jose, fairfield
81 after yesterday's 91. fog, sun, mild and warmer on thursday but then looks like a huge cool down as we get towards the weekend. thanks, steve. walnut creek searching for two thieves who have been targeting popular shopping areas in the early morning hours. car breakins all happened near businesss on oak grove roads. we're live with more about the suspect's description. tom. >> reporter: what police are looking for are two white males youngish white males. both have shaved heads. and a whole lot of daring do. >> they're associated with two separate vehicles. one was a dark colored vw pass at and the other a gray sedan with some sort of wave symbol in the back window. >> reporter: even before 7:00 a.m. this stretch near oak grove is busy. nonetheless, two criminals were able to smash windows in a half dozen cars in broad daylight
yesterday morning and take valuables left in glove boxes and under seats. unlike many car boosts where an obvious valuable piece of property such at gps, laptop was visible police say there was no such temptation in these cases. the warning it doesn't have to be in your car, don't keep it there. >> as opposed to seeing stuff lying in the vehicles, i think they're breaking in the vehicles and searching for items. >> reporter: look over here in the parking lot now the safeway just opened up. so a few cars have pulled in but when we pulled in here at about 5:00 this morning the fact of the matter was there were at least half a dozen cars, maybe ten, parked here completely unattended and the lot was pretty much dash. bottom line is this. if you don't have to have things in your car it pays not to have them. we have two problems going for us. we have a recession meaning more desperate people out there and more importantly we have a lot of folks saying it's not my
problem. when we hear an alarm go off or something like that we tend to ignore it. that may be the way things are but the reality is that only helps the people trying to steal. reporting live from walnut creek, consumer editor, ktvu, channel 2 news. time now is 6:09. up next, changes could be in store for public universities here in california. we'll tell you how the legislature is taking action following a controversy linked to sarah palin. and tapes of the interrogations of a 9/11 plotter once thought to be destroyed have been discovered. i'll show you what's on them coming up.

we see some of the preliminary on tv when they begin the idol. that's the third step when they have the judges. >> reporter: when they actually go in front of the judges at that point they've performed in front of producers and executive producers and then go before the judges. a lot of steps to get to that point in particular. they'll sing on thursday and sing again past that round and then again and then again before they finally -- >> i thought she was out though. >> reporter: well, that is -- well, talking to fox people this morning that is what everyone was talking about that that was the rumor going around that she was out. >> found out through a news report. >> reporter: well , and so the fox people said out here that's officially not the case yet. no. >> all right. thank you. getting to the bottom of all of this. >> reporter: no problem. >> and sharing talent. all right. she's going to be out there all morning. who's going to judge is definitely a big part of the
show. everybody's anxiously awaiting. >> i want to see it. i want to see who's going to do it. good morning everybody. let's go outside and take a look at what we have now with the morning commute out to the live pictures. we will look at traffic moving along okay. but it's getting more crowded at the bay bridge toll plaza. as a matter of fact you can see traffic is moving along okay once you get on to the bridge because we have cameras on it. but for the most part we haven't had a big delay at the toll plaza. if you look at northbound and southbound 880 also more people as this is now what we were thinking now that school is back in we would see more people on the roads. as a matter of fact no major problems on 880. in the south bay 280 northbound that traffic moves along pretty well getting up to highway 70. oh, and there goes cal train just for steve paulson. some of the best tweets i've ever had were from angry people on cal train. but today we don't see any of those and cal train is on time.
imagine that. now go to steve. >> they do that for us, sal. you and me. >> i read them any way. >> i know. we have low clouds and in the fog again. now yesterday the inland areas warmed up. today they'll cool right back down. and the reason being there's more fog. southwest 24 at travis they have been up to 33 miles an hour yesterday was about 14. they've doubled that. west-southwest 6 at vacaville. napa west at west-northwest calm. everything calm in santa rosa. west at sfo and west at oakland. there's your sea breeze even with the low clouds making it out to fairfield. they're done. they'll drop ten degrees today. by the coast wasn't much of a warm up though santa cruz warmed to 77 yesterday. it's been a long time since i've seen over a 75-degree reading in santa cruz. yesterday was one of those days. today they'll cool right back down. this low coming in right there looks weak. that's coming in and ushering in a picking up sea breeze.
61 for a high in san francisco. that's below average as you might imagine. temperatures which were near average yesterday come right back down. average 68 for the city. not close today. 66 oakland. should be 74. santa rosa 74. should be 82 on the high side. mountain view 7 below average and san jose 10. 74, average is 84. warmest temperatures 99 and 100 for 1999 for santa rosa and san jose. mt. tamalpais and other areas running warm 72 degrees. if you're taking a hike or bike ride and leave the valley where it's 53 start heading up you're going to run into warmer air aloft. i expect that to cool down rapidly though. mid-50s for everyone else. in the mountains seeing low 40s low right there means a cooling trend as that begins to punch in and that is right near the oregon border. as it does that sets the stage for more fog and a stronger sea breeze. we're seeing both of those and that spells cooler today. good form maybe ten degrees
cooler. sunny, breezy to windy. cooler the biggest drops in temps away from the coast. 50s, 60s around the beaches. low to mid-80s inland. and lake county low -9d 0s. everyone else cools down. slightly warmer thursday and a big drop in temps friday and saturday. all right. 6:41. up next we'll have new information from investigators about the officer-involved shooting in burling game. >> reporter: car burglaries with a twist in the east bay have lessons for all of us no matter where we are. that story coming up as the morning news continues.
