>> another big fog bank out there and it's giving us also some drizzle so we have to deal with that. today will be very similar to what we had over the weekend. breezy to windy at times, already gusts to 30. about the same tomorrow, by the end of the week looks like that fog will be getting a little shallower, it does look warmer 80s and 90s coming back for us in the sacramento san joaquin valley. we keep dealing with a low coming in from the pacific west, that ramps up the fog. then high pressure in the middle of country tries to head back west but it's been trying to do that for the last two months. we have some fog in the coast, but it has no problem getting back out. everybody coast and inland 80 degrees. west south wind or a west wind when it's 27 at travis and southwest at vacaville. any time they get a south wind
in this kind of a pattern that's a cool breeze. once the low kicks out, temperatures will gradually start to come up. it's a gradual the warm warm up. breezy to windy and that will be out of the west. drizzle will give way to sunshine. for some inland it'll be sunny and breezy. 50, 60, 70s and a few 80s. livermore, fairfield, antioch and points inland but everybody else 60s and 70s. you might notice it but thursday, friday, we get up into some 80s. fog stays at the coast. 5:10 is the time this morning. this morning the suspect in the attack in norway appears in court. what the suspect asked for this morning that the judge denies. plus relief from the heat. when the folks in the east
our washington, d.c. newsroom and this is a critical week, allison. >> reporter: pam that's right, eight days until the debt limit deadline and instead of moving closer together, democrats and republicans here on capitol hill seem to be moving in their own directions. after a weekend of roller coaster talks continued, at one point house speaker boehner said he wanted a deal before asian markets opened today but that did not happen. now worries of defaults, hillary clinton spoke today. >> i'm confident that congress will do the right thing and secure a deal on the debt ceiling. >> reporter: the u.s. stock market of course opens in a little more than an hour, and pressure is certainly building on democrats and republicans here on capitol hill to raise
the u.s. borrowing limit. more on the potential path to compromise in my next update in about an hour. for now we're live, allison burns. a court hearing started in norway just a couple of minutes ago for a man who confessed to those attacks that killed 93 people. the lawyer for anders breivik asked for an open hearing to explain what happened, but the judge said, no, it would be a closed hearing. he's accused of a bomb attack and a shooting massacre at a youth camp. today search and rescue crews in boats, they are still looking for possibly even more victims in the waters off the island where that youth camp was located. at least four people have not been accounted for yet.

temperatures into the low to mid-80s. and that's a big difference from the triple digit temperatures in much of the country the past couple of days 138,000 people were under a heat alert. the heat was blamed for over 34 deaths. our time is 5:15, let's go sal and see if the commute is starting to wake up. it is are a little bit dave, the traffic is moving a little bit well if you're driving in many areas. the godden gate bridge traffic looking pretty good heading down to the toll plaza. if you are driving to oakland: north and southbound i80s, that's where most of the traffic is right now but . the northbound drive coming up through bay point still looks good. it's probably going to get busy later on. then west of contra costa county, still on the good side.
5:17 let's go to steve. >> walnut creek, where is that. out there. okay. low cloud deck, we get a strong surge from our west wind and help by another low in the pacific northwest after just incredible heat in the east. boston by the way hit 103 last night. what was it thursday or friday. one degree shy of an all time record high. there's been records shattered. while we're sitting here very cool. i know see seattle is talking about the coolest summer. you get a lot of lee time leeway. south wind up in santa rosa, this time it's a cool breeze with all that fog in place.
weak system, but that's all it takes to send that fog up and over. we might have to keep an eye on the tropical moisture that would be in the sierra nevada before we see any of it. for the morning here, monday morning, fog, clouds, some drizzle. it might be a slow process for some in the coast, but breezy and windy. windy out to the delta, san pablo bay, nothing new there. when you get to travis everything is in place. temperatures again below average here. as we talked about gradual warming expected later in the week but probably not until wednesday then things should start to kick in and we just go a little warmer. inland temps will get into the 80s and 90s. european markets are down. but coming down from opening numbers, investors around the world are focusing on the lack
of progress raising the debt limit. all the asian marks closed down due to those concerns. the shanghai market dropped the most. the nikkei was down 1% each. crude oil prices dropped, some credit rating agencies are warning that they would decrease the u.s. rating down to a double a. gold at a record high, it does look like a lower opening. our futures point the to a lower opening, but not as bad when i checked the numbers an hour ago. we'll see what happens once we get to the opening bell. lots of wedding bells ringing in new york suggest
today for hundreds of same-sex couples. and look right there, he's the mayor, michael bloomberg was at one ceremony but not everyone is celebrating. and several fires setting off in the bay, the one thing they all have in common. and looking at the commute, it still looks good. we'll tell you more about the commute straight ahead.

law allowing same-sex marriages declared unconstitutional. now for people here in the bay area the same-sex marriages in new york were a bittersweet moment. >> this is supposed to be a liberal state and you know some place like new york can fasten everything. so it makes me really angry. in 2008 of course, california state supreme court declared same-sex marriages legal. but just a few months later, voters approved proposition eight ending those marriages, some same-sex couples we spoke to say they are planning trips to new york in order to get married and they say they are hopeful that california isn't far behind in allowing the same rights to people here. time now 5:26, the very latest on an 11-year-old girl hit by a stray bullet in san francisco. how she's doing this morning and the new details that may come out today. for the second time in the last month, a northern california teenager hospitalized after getting trapped in a sand tunnel. how that teenager is doing
