dave knows that too. good morning, everyone. let's take a look at the commute on westbound 92. okay out to to the high rise. of course today is memorial day. we will not have a lot of traffic, but unfortunately, in my experience what i tend to see is when the roads are wide open sometimes we have collisions that are more serious because people are going faster. so take it easy out there and if someone is driving not that great you know just try to plan for that, stay away from that person. westbound by bridge looks good into san francisco, northbound 101 looks good. 6:09, let's go to steve. >> good morning, partly sunny, closer to the coast clouds but overall just 60s and 70s. tough to warm up in this pattern. another low is dropping in, that will be with us on tuesday and wednesday. and starting to push in clouds, that has made it in. you get that write with a sea

6:35 am
launch about 6:00, they still have one of the hot air balloons in that trailer, they're just getting ready to unpack it, but it's probably not going to be flying. they're supposed to fly from here, in san ramon, over the altamont pass, one of the pilots says things will have to be scaled back. >> the challenge today is weather. that's the issue. we have to have a ceiling of at least a thousand feet. it looks now, like it's about 4 or 500 feet, if you look over the hills over there. >> reporter: as you heard, the fog is the problem, but this is part of the city's festival in san ramon. a free event, it's going to take place whether or not there is fog today. it features professional kite fliers and kite making activities for kids, but it's not the only memorial day celebration appearing here in the bay area. there are dozens of events, including one at the presidio

6:38 am
>> there's no indication, she has any kind of psychiatric or medical issues that would explain why she isn't responding to any calls, or isn't reaching out to anybody. so those things make it suspicious. >> hayward police are trying to get a search warrant for le's suv that was found, hopefully to find more information. pg and e crews are getting ready for testing. the crews have to vent all the gas out of those lines, that's going to happen tomorrow in newark, and on wednesday in san jose. the actual testing should be done later this week. the customers probably won't notice any interruptions in their service. gasoline prices keep dropping this holiday weekend. this morning, we've checked around the bay area, drivers are paying a little more than $4 for a gallon of regular gas. in san francisco, drivers are
6:39 am
spending and average of $4.15 for regular. those prices are down more than 7 cents from last week. however, one of the few drivers we could find this early hour says it hasn't fallen far enough. >> normally, we go out to the sierras for memorial weekend, but not this weekend with the way gas prices are. >> prices here remain about 25 cents a gallon higher than the national average. 6:39 is the time right now, let's go back over to sal so check in on traffic, if there is any. >> reporter: the roads are doing okay right now, because it is memorial day. i want to remind you that a stream is not running today because of memorial day. they'll be back tomorrow. amend right now traffic on highway 4 is light. it has been light even in antioch, which really shows you it is a holiday. showing the bay bridge, traffic is not expected to become heavy
6:40 am
at all. even later when people start coming back from their memorial day. they usually do it dispursed, or in a wide pattern, so they don't all come back at once. traffic on 680 looks good, heading to the south bay. that barbeque weather forecast, let's go to steve. >> might want to stand next to it sal, because it's not going to be warm. >> low clouds, kind of hit and miss. right back in on the san mateo coast. there are some breaks in the clouds, a few high clouds up above, but i just tweeted sp weather. sfo has gusts up to 35 miles per hour, and it's 51 degrees. that's cold. that's cold. we do have some mostly sunny, partly sunny skies today. as weak high pressure comes in, very weak. not much to it. 50s, 60s, and lower 70s. here we go with another system
6:41 am
dropping down, as it does, that just reinforces the fog bank. the fog is forming like that. we haven't had heat. our last 80s were around may 5. if anything, we had a lot of really cool readings on sunday, and will continue to have some today. normal is 66, it will be 60 today. there's the gust at 35 at sfo. everything is in place for that sea breeze. here comes that low right off portland. it doesn't have a lot to work with, but it does have cold air, and it will keep the theme of us staying partly cloudy, to mostly cloudy. occasionally, light rain moves in. not a big deal for tuesday and wednesday. there are hints for a system at the end of the week. more clouds, cooler, some light rains as we go into midweek. today will be cooler as well. some of the low clouds favoring
6:42 am
the san mateo cost. 50s, 60s, or even low 70s, they'll be a breeze. temperatures staying far below average. clouds roll in on tuesday, and wednesday. partly sunny, mostly cloudy. a few off and on showers. thursday and friday look all right. cloud it up again on the weekend. the city of capitola is still waiting to see if the federal government will come through with disaster relief. capitola was hit by two flash floods in late march and there's still damage. but california chose not to invoke the disaster assistance act following the flooding. people are now waiting to see if fema will provide aid. the city has already spent close to $1 million to fix city property and expecting to spend another 500,000 to complete that work. time now, 6:42, it is memorial day, and troops pause to remember their conrads who died. honoring more than 1500 servicemen killed in that
6:43 am
country. endeavour is heading home, and into its next mission here on the ground. good morning, traffic is moving well on northbound 101 approaching 80, the interchange. we'll tell you more about the morning commute, and the bay area.
6:44 am
6:45 am
welcome back, time now 6:45. these are live pictures we're
6:46 am
showing you, this is the presidio in san francisco. you can see the tombstones lined as far as you can see, and the flags. people are preparing at the presidio now. obviously, this will be a major focus for memorial day, observances throughout the day area. again, a live picture. very special events taking place here throughout the bay area for memorial day, beginning in just a couple of hours. welcome back, good morning to you. here's a quick look at some of the other top stories we're following for you. oakland police are searching for the gunman responsible for a triple shooting that left two people dead. another one in critical condition. this happened last night on 88th avenue, near international. it happened during a memorial day weekend barbeque and side show in the streets. the police investigation continues. the chp is investigating two separate crashes last night on westbound 580. they say one reckless driver is
6:47 am
responsible for collisions that sent three people to the hospitals. cities all over the bay area, as we said, are getting ready to celebrate, and honor this memorial day. several parades and events are planned, remembering the men and women who served this country. in afghanistan, u.s. troops are remembering their fallen comrades this memorial day. members of the army stationed in kabul held a candlelight vigil to recognize the nearly 1500 u.s. service members killed in afghanistan since that war began in 2001. over in iraq, more than 4400 american service members have died since 2003. 39 people are still unaccounted for in joplin, missouri, one week after a tornado tore through their town. more than 130 people died. this morning, joining us from
6:48 am
joplin, where president obama toured the damage a day ago. >> reporter: he note only met with survivers, but also spoke at a memorial service health here at joplin -- held here at joplin yesterday. one of the more poignant statements was at a time like this, people find themselves asking the question why. why our town? why is my son missing? he says that is something we obviously to not have control over. noting we do have control over is how we move forward from here in helping thy neighbor. that's what we've seen on day 8, after this ef5 twister tore through here. this back here behind me was one the greenbriar nursing home. the only way you know that it was a medical facility is you see twisted wheelchairs and
6:49 am
medical equipment scattered throughout this debris field. three residents are still unaccounted for. four were found alive in the last week, and four died. the grim reality is that we have seen these numbers continuing to rise in terms of the death toll, while the number of missing and unaccounted for has gone down, but some 8,000 buildings in this small community of only about 49,000 people were destroyed. and on this memorial day when a lot of people are out on their boats, when they're out barbequing sh and enjoying time with friends and family, the people of job lynn here are sorting through the trouble, trying to find what they can salvage of their lives. it is just heartbreaking, and we really need to keep these people in our thoughts and prayers today. >> absolutely, because the scene behind you is just unbelievable. thank you for that update. endeavour is heading home one last tight, the shuttle
6:50 am
