causing slow downs. not much fog inland, just a little bit, but some of it there is rather shallow, reducing visibility. lows in the upper 40s to the 50s, the fog will burn off sooner. if you're above it, it is very nice. we've got warm temperatures above the fog bank up at the kings mountain at 65 degrees. if you're below that, it could be a little above the cool side, but we're already seeing some sun. the fog though will start to lift as we get towards the weekend. more emphasis on fog than low clouds. otherwise it's clear, sunny. and more of the same tomorrow. mild to warm, but it's looking cooler, yes, much cooler as we head towards sunday and monday. giants, if you're heading out for the game, 12:45. pirates, 68 degrees today. it should be beautiful. there might be some fox around the area, but it look -- fog around the area, but it looks like a nice day. 67, 68 degrees in san francisco. low clouds and fog. high pressure came in
yesterday, putting it right to the ground and burned it off sooner. but 50 degrees, they had a couple upper 40s towards the north bay and 50s, mid to upper. fairfield at 58. but about three to four miles stronger yesterday. not a big deal, but any time they increase or decrease, you know, we don't think that they will be warming up more than what you had yesterday. there is a system moving in to seattle, but an even stronger one that will start to develop by the weekend. that will give us a big cooldown. but today, any fog and low clouds, they are clearing around rapidly. it's solid up and down the coast. and so for most it will be sunny and nice and mild to warm. and maybe hot. the fog, sun, warm, sunny, for most it is shallow. it's not getting blown out to sea or anything. still hugging the coast. so 90s for some. 80s for a lot. and 678 is the coast and the bay -- 67 is the coast and the bay. we'll go 70 at berkeley, 78 here at caster valley.

say that he should do that and that the president and congress are to blame for america's first-ever credit downgrade and with so much volatility on wall street, it's critical for congress to start solving some other problem. now, i talked to one of the president's former top economic advisers who agree that congress should end their break early. >> their work is not done as long as america's work is not done. i mean when you look at 9.1% unemployment and probably even more importantly, the absence of the real concrete plan to get america back to work. >> as for president obama's schedule, he meets with the secretary. and reporting live from washington, d.c., allison burns, ktvu channel 2 news. we have continuing coverage of the wild ride on wall street on our website at ktvu.com. you can find complete coverage and also the dow is down currently 378. we also have a timeline of the

protest all the partisan fighting in congress who lead to the downgrade, but she was told that is a no fly zone. >> i bet that's something that i could do that probably, you know, wouldn't cost $1 million and maybe somebody would listen to me. >> the company called fly sign liked what she was doing so much they gave her a discount. she is now hoping that lawmakers will cut short of their summer breaks and get back to work on fixing the economy. and it is 7:18, supporters of republican candidate michele bachmann are outraged about a photo from the candidate. they show the congresswoman looking directly into the camera with a wide eyed expression. the queen of rage. and offensive supporters accuse the magazine of trying to make the candidate look crazy. the daily beats posted outtakes of the news week photo shoots with alternative photos that they could have chosen to use.

south bay, we have slow traffic where else, 101 from about out here all the way up to 880 and pocket about 280, which is slow from 17 up to lawrence express way. and they are slowing down. now, let's go to steve, it's 7:40. >> all right, good morning everybody. well if you like warm to hot weather head east. if you like the fog and the cool stay to the west because that's what we're going to have today. the fog burns off sooner. now, some of it is rather thick, but yesterday was the thickest towards nevada to santa rosa. today seems to be more napa county, but it will burn off soon. by the coast it will hang out there for most of the day. temperatures are a little cool for some of the numbers coming up for august. upper 40s, but 58 to 78. we'll have 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s by later on this afternoon. it's the giants and the pirates today. mostly breezy, 68 degrees today. some fog near or around the area, but that looks good to me. the low cloud deck is really going. there's a lot of fog all the way down to southern
california. for a while we were getting the fog and it was sunny and warm and hot down there, but that's not the case if you have travel plans for l.a. or san diego. they are socked in. and the fog needs something to lift it, which will occur over the weekend, when a strong system begins to develop there. but until then, away from the coast, we have lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. these are actually near average for this time of the year. but 50 to 59, mountain view always runs warm. now, calm out there, but west southwest, 15 out here. not a big deal, but a little stronger than yesterday west of 5. nothing for us. and so that is not really there. it is still rather light. and the system moves in to seattle. they are keeping them really cool. and up there, the pacific northwest has been cool and the fog was held in check by the high pressure which is there, but it's not over us. the western edge of it, it is clearing up, depending on how you look at it. as the system develops, what's going to happen is that the remains of the typhoon are coming across the pacific, which is just another name for the hurricane. that's a lot of energy that comes across. now, once that moves in, you
won't be bringing us any rain, but it will be interesting to see how it develops. it will enhance the cool, which is what i'm trying to say here. and that will be kicked along and they are moving locally inland. and today, the fog burned off soon and sunny for most. and they are still by the coast, anywhere from the 60s to the 90s. and 64 to clear lake. and napa, santa rosa, nevada, all around the low 80s. fairfield at 90. now, if you want pittsburgh, the in concord. and the same for them down here. 60s, 70s, mainly some low 70s. and the 80s, low to mid-80s. and 77 out here, redwood city, 78. just a lot of fog though. sot 60s here, daily city, west lake, san bruno, maybe close to 70. but the city, it's 68 degrees. cooler weather on tap for the weekend. >> all right, thank you, steve. now, it's 7:43, is london still burning? we'll find out as thousands of police kept the city quiet
374. they are down about 71 and s&p down about 38. now, that was the most valued company in our country for a few hours yesterday. they gained nearly 6%, making the company worth about $347 billion. and they dipped during the day, but finished with a value of $348 billion. and apple is likely to take the top spot away from them permanently, probably before the end of next year. and now time is 7:47, now we're learning that only half of the new airline passenger protection rules will be kicking in as scheduled on august 23. and our reporter is live for us at washington, d.c. to explain the delay, diana? >> good morning. i'm afraid that these rules were suppose to make traveling a little more pleasurable for you and for a passenger everywhere, but now, you know, they will need to wait to see at least half of them kick in.

surveillance footage. the video shows two white males in their 40s, heavy set, one wearing a stocking over his head. no word yet on how much it will cost to fix, but the directors, when they do rebuild, they most certainly will not be made of glass. and now we did find some youtube video of the blue devils drum and other cords. now, they actually, well, won the open class world championship last night and this video is actually not from that event. but just to give you an idea of how important the money is for these children, and they take their music very seriously. we're here live in concord, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right, thank you. and it is 8:02, an elementary school is burglarized just weeks before classes begin. now, they have been hit three times in the past month. they are out here to show us how the thieves broke in this time. good morning. >> good morning. now, three times in four weeks,
