4:31 am
in southern california yesterday. >> i heard from my sister in southern california. >> it will be the hottest world series first pitch ever. >> what is it's up post to be? >> 96. >> the hottest was 91 when the diamondbacks played but that was inside. >> and that was in arizona. >> they will beat that by about 6. the hottest since 1975. today it would be about 96 for game 1. 90 in san francisco. that is my forecast high. the record is 90 from 1965. that is just one of many. there is one observation in berkeley with an east wind that shows 81 degrees. 75, san francisco. kensington, 75. there are some very robust winds coming off the oakland and berkeley hills.
4:32 am
also in san francisco, most are showing a north or easterly breeze. except for one observation. i'm concerned because gusts are at 43 above the caldecott and over 20 at the oakland zoo. the berkeley lab has an east wind and 75 degrees. there is some very warm air aloft and that offshore breeze equals 70s for many. oakland airport says 65. half moon bay, 77. but offshore breeze will continue. oakland is 11 degrees warmer at this time compared to yesterday. high pressure is a large and in charge. unseasonably strong. it will be slow to break down. this will be the hottest day and then we will see gradual cooling over the next 5-6 days. upper 80s to near 90 today. we are off to a decent start
4:33 am
. if you are driving out to solano county or from solano county into contra costa county, it looks good from vacaville, fairfield and vallejo. highway 37 remains open. traffic is good across the carquinez bridge. from that bridge to the macarthur maze, i-17 minute drive. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. a little bit of it slowing in the cash lanes. in oakland you may want to avoid the corner of eighth and harrison because of a vehicle accident. we're learning about another air canada jets having a problem while trying to land at sfo. this happened sunday night when the flight was setting up to land just before 9:30 pm. air traffic controllers told the captain to go around because they were not sure if another plane had left the runway.
4:34 am
the faa said the canadian crew did not respond so the tower flashed a red light at the cockpits warning the pilot not to land. but the jet landed anyway. the air canada crew later told officials the jet's radio was not working properly. last summer there was a near disaster when another air canada flight tried to land on the taxiway at sfo where several other planes filled with passengers were waiting to take off. that jets came within 60 feet of landing before another pilot radioed the tower and the flight was told to go round. no one was hurt in that incident. police arrested a man they say carjacked a truck in san leandro -- san lorenzo and ran over and killed the owner. victor martinez alvarez from oakland is in custody. he is accused of killing james figueroa junior. figueroa junior went out to warm his truck on thursday morning before going inside his home. when he returned police say alvarez was inside the truck. figueroa junior try to stop him

4:36 am
>> doctors say the little girl's condition is getting better but her younger brother is still in critical condition. police say it's possible the driver did not see the family because of the setting sun. it's not clear why the driver did not stay at the scene. police sent us these photos from a surveillance camera near the crash scene and say this is the car they are looking for. it's an older white acura. it does not have a license plate but does have damaged the front end. if you have any information about this car, call vallejo police. in lake county, two people were shot and killed in their home but a man who went to other locations and opened fire. the rampage began yesterday morning in lake oaks north of the city of clear lake. investigators say alan ashmore is the gunman who fired into homes. two men died at different locations. investigators say the suspect shot and hurt a woman on the

misconduct by officers there. a study of the effects of police body cameras had surprising conclusions. a study of police officers on the washington dc police force compared 1000 officers with body cameras to 1000 officers without cameras. during an 18 month period the study found little difference in police behavior when it came to use of force, civilian complaints or the number of charging decisions made by prosecutors. a professor at uc berkeley and the author of a book, when police kill. he disagrees with the results of this study. >> there are substantial indications that the presence or absence of a camera does make a difference. >> 95% of police departments nationwide now use body cameras including most departments in the bay area. police and fire officials in santa clara were called to a home after a small child was
4:39 am
locked inside a gun safe. the little girl was playing hide and seek with her three- year-old brother when she decided the gun safe was a place to hide. the safe was empty. it was open at the time. the small child locked herself in. fire crews were able to get the combination to the safe but it took a while to figure out how to open it. the little girl was freed 20 minutes after the firefighters arrived. she was shaken up but was not hurt. very scary. 4:39 am. preventing rent gouging after the fire disaster. the meetings planned for today to ensure that no one is taking advantage of as they look for new housing. barked has approval to roll out new trains. we will let you know when you can expect to see them. good morning. we do have a problem in oakland where there has been a severe
