correlated. northbound 101 as you approach the 80 split. this traffic here is moderately avenue. we've had a lot of fender- benders. b.a.r.t. is doing well. caltrain and muni have minor delays. not enough to take them. let's go to steve. mostly sunny. but that breeze is really picking up here. it's going to be a cooler, breezy day. a lot more 70s than 80s. that will be soft 80s. patchy low clouds, sunny, breezy, a cool morning tomorrow morning but it will be warmer. we'll take that into thursday and then clouds increase friday. looks like rain on saturday. patrick in redwood shores said how much rain and how far. no pressure at all. i don't think it will be that much rain. i think the north bay will get the most. we have a couple of days to
work our way into that forecast. system rotating up to the pacific northwest, actually northern california is what's causing some of this little ramp up in the breeze. a little bit of rain to the north. moving farther south and 50s on the temperatures or 60s. the breeze was really cranked up at sfo. the low clouds are already beginning to dissipate. the system responsible will eject out here probably later this afternoon or tonight. not before it sets the stage for cooler. a little rain in northeast
california or northern california. then we'll focus on this system for the north bay. cooler, windy in spots. i think the stage is set for what's now going to be cooler mornings over the next couple of days. 60s, 70s and 80s. oakland, 72. alamo, la fayette, walnut creek in there. pleasant hill, 70s. very slow 80s -- very low 80s. santa clara, sunnyvale, 75. same for menlo park, mountain view. san mateo, 73. pacifica, daly city. warmer wednesday/thursday. could be drizzle late friday. more likely the drizzle will move in. it will be a cool, breezy pattern on sunday. let's bring you up to date on some of the other top stories we're following for
you. we're finding out more about aaron alexis. new reports say he was being treated for mental illness, including hearing noises, paranoia and a sleep disorder. 13 people were killed including the gunman. a hayward police officer suffered a minor illness after being hurt in a scuffle. two suspects were arrested after leading police on a chase in a stolen car then ramming a police car. two other cars in the neighborhood were hit by the suspect's getaway car. the investigation goes on into a big fire in west oakland early today that damaged two homes. this started early this morning on 24th street near market m alex savidge has been out there since 4:30. he's back now to tell us how the fire victims got away from
those fast-moving flames. >> reporter: people woke up to a frightening scene. you can imagine there are units filling up with flames and smik smoke. the good news, everybody managed to make it out safely. let me show you the damage. you can see restoration crews are out here boarding up the windows. all of the people who live in these two homes will have to find another place to stay. this fire started in the back of one of the homes inside the first floor laundry room. here's a look at the area. investigators suspect this fire was caused by some sort of problem with the electrical system. the 911 calls started to come in at 3:30 a.m. these homes are on 24th street right off market. because they are older victorians. firefighters say the flames spread quickly from the ground floor up to the second floor and into the attic. a total of 12 people were inside the two homes and everyone made it out safely. although i was just told one cat was killed in this fire and two others are now policing. one neighbor this morning told me he actually kicked down a door to help save a woman
inside one of those burning homes. >> i just needed to handle business. i haven't had time to process any fear. it's making sure humans are alive and not dying. >> reporter: firefighters found three rifles inside one of the homes burning. those weapons were turned over to police. all of the people inside the homes are being helped out by the red cross. they will be set up with another place to stay. obviously, these homes cannot be lived in. the battalion chief said this fire between the two homes probably did about $500,000 in damage. they do believe faulty wiring could be to blame. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. 8:53. a new proposal from the creator of star wars. how those plans could directly affect one of the bare's best-

center. all right. sal, i'm seeing on twitter and facebook a lot of complaints about traffic this morning. >> you know, people get on there and they say gosh, this is terrible and sometimes they hear about it. i will tell you why. there was an earlier stalled bus on the upper deck of the bay bridge. usually after something like that happens, we have big, big backups. now it's way back to normal, which is good. it's kind of surprising but in a good way. let's move along and take a look at northbound 880 that traffic is moving nicely until you reach the coliseum and slows down at 23rd. caltrain had a breakdown and there were minor delays there. the system seems to be better now. muni had minor delays now. all in all they are doing we. let's go to steve. a little cooler and breezy today or windy for some. we have a few low clouds around. i think it will be sunny here. temperatures will start to warm
