fires. you can see grass there browning already because of the heat we have seen. the nearby cities such as walnut creek and concord are also expected to hit the 90s as well, so the grass in those areas could be turning brown in no time, making it a big-time fireered. i did get a chance to speak with contra costa county fire, and they provided me with tips for the public as far as being safe around these types of areas. >> we always encourage people to be careful with smoking materials, parking vehicles on unabated grass and weeds like this. mowers that aren't designed for weed whacking because they can actually strike a rock and cause a spark and igniteñiñi a fire. >> reporter: we're only a few days into may, but contra costa county is already sending weed abatement notices to homes and you can see the weeds that are pretty tall at this point already. you're getting a live look. turning brown a little bit. clearly an issue thatú% ut

quickly warming up again today. and it's going to be up to 93 degrees. hot day, peninsula up to 88 degrees. and 78 degrees in san francisco. so you do catch a little bit of a break right there along the coastline. and in the city, we're up to 83 degrees. so in the east bay. looking at some light northerly winds coming in. and this will not help us out at all. gives us that hot, dry air, but there will be just enough of an onshore flow by this afternoon into the evening to help cool off san francisco. just a few degrees below yesterday. but the inland areas won't get much help, but then the wind shifts tomorrow onshore and also with coastal fog, our temperatures will be much xd cooler, especially along the coastline where we'll see the temperatures dropping back xdin the 60s after several days in the 80s. here's a look at the fog as it develops tomorrow. once again, right there along the coastline, over the golden gate bridge, and we'll see an increase in cloud cover on friday, and we'll all be really
cool and heading into the weekend, there will be a few weak weather systems passing by the region that could bring us a slight chance of rain starting out on sunday afternoon and into monday as our temperatures will go from well above average to much cooler than average as we get a look at the seven-day forecast. san francisco, 78 degrees today. then some lower 60s for the weekend. more clouds, a chance of showers late sunday. slight chance. today. then look at the weekend, it's going to be a nice one, but don't expect it to be bright and sunny. we'll see a lot more clouds rolling in. as we head to mike, the crash is clearing quickly. >> pretty quickly. i think it's because of the great work by chp and also because of the lighter volume of traffic all around the bay. we see this from the spring break all the way into the end of the school year and to the summer as well. 580, the crash at the shoulder. 880 southbound, that one nearly clear from the roadway. we'll take you down to the south bay where just a minute ago, a couple minutes ago, we got word

happened on mt. frasier. bob redell joins us at the scene. what have you learned since we last checked in with you about 30 minutes ago. >> good morning to you. it looks like the san jose police department, at least their crime investigator unit, they're getting ready to wrap up their part of the investigation. this is the 1500 block of mt. frasier drive. it was around 11:30 last night that the officers of the san jose police department responding to a homoon the left side of the screen to a report of a family disturbance. the police department has not given out too much in the way of details, but they did say that one of their officers ended up shooting an adult man who they describe as a suspect. this man was hit at least once. was taken to the hospital for treatment. no one else was hurt. we did speak off camera with a neighbor. he said that he heard that this man had a knife. but that is not information we have been able to confirm yet with the san jose police
department. the officer will be placed on routine paid administrative leave which is normal in a situation like this. also, normal is the fact that the santa clara county district attorney's office and the san jose police department homicide unit are conducting a joint criminal investigation. that's routine when you have an officer involved shooting. the san jose police department indicated its police chief eddy garcia is expected to make a statement about this officer-involved shooting some time later today. reporting live here in san jose, ñ today in the bay. >> thank you for the latest there, bob. it's 6:33. one of the largest school districts in the country soon split into two districts. a public meeting scheduled for today to talk about the plan. >> on top of the one yesterday, we talk to kris sanchez live for us in walnut creek this morning to4f,zlwñ explain why this idea causing quite a bit of controversy. >> reporter: hi, there. well, this is one of five walnut creek schools that are part of the new proposed school district, all five are
predominantly affluent, predominantly high performing and predominantly white. that's why a lot of opponents of the school breakup say that this smacks of segregation of years gone by. safe to say we expect the same kind offence at today's meeting as we saw yesterday. it was packed, it was passionate. the mt. diablo district has 32,000 students. the proposed north gate would take less than $5,000. opponents say because they're among mt.t( diablo unified most affluent schools, the secession takes resources away from the less advantaged students. however, parents say breaking away from mt. diablo means more local control and more local accountability. >> preparing yourself to pass under performance is not the way the world works. >> we tracked that we'll have many students who will no longer have access to programs that their families rely on. >> all right, if you are a mt.
diabloxd unified school distric parent or youtylive in walnut creek, here's where you can find tonight's meeting. it's 6:00 at the gardens of heather farms in walnut creek. the proposed new district has to make it past county hurdles, also hurdles toward the state, in the state, but we did -- we do know that the city of walnut creek has weighed in on the issue and they say it really should be up to voters to decide. in walnut creek, kris sanchez, today in the bay. >> thank you for following that for us. >> 6:35 right now. happening now, live pictures at uc santa cruz as we move in, pish in on the glass doors there. you see students inside of the building. they have taken over the main administrative building on campus. these are live pictures you're looking at. students lying there, and occupying that building. we have been watching the pictures of students sleeping on the floors. there are nearly 200 inside. this isinized by the african black student alliance and it was a demonstration that started yesterday afternoon. students are asking the
university to provide housing for african and black students at the rosa parks house. that protest started yesterday. the chancellors on meeting with the group tomorrow. >> it's 6:36. now to a story you'll only see on nbc bay area. the former supervisor of an oakland animal care center is under questioning for mistreating animals in her care. this is after sources say they were starving and some left living in small cages in their own feces. they include seven reptiles, two guinea bigs, a bird and a mouse. the woman is the former center supervisor. we spoke to her and she says authorities have it all wrong. she says she would never mistreat animals. >> i love my animals. and my animals are taken care q of. i put my life on that. >> she is homeless and says she first came to the city's attention for living in a city
van without permission. an oakland city spokesman confirmed the investigation. >> a disturbing crime in pleasant hill. police releasing this sketch of a man who they say walked up to a teenage girl, lifted her skirt and took off running. it happen yesterday afternoon while she was walking near mo l morello avenue. if you recognize this man, call pleasant hill police. >> anyone who happens to be passing through sfo today might notice pilots on a picket line. this is not part of a strike. instead,ts from alaska airlines are holding a protest at three different west coast airports and that includes sfo. of course, alaska air recently swallowed up virgin america airlines and so far the pilots union and the new airline have yet to sit down for new contract talks. welcome back. we're looking over here towards traffic flow. westbound 92 shows the slowest drive. we also have a crash in the south bay. we'll focus on both of those for this report. west 92 at the high rise,
reports that one lane is blocked. haven't heard about any injuries. that's the news. the bad news is the bridge is going to have a tougher time getting there because things are starting to back up on the flat section. hopefully they can use the service lane. that's why it was augments a few years ago. over here, a second crash of the morning or it sounds like a second crash at the same spot, west 237. this crash involves a. checking on injuries, but we see a slower drive developing here. we have this report and some details from wazer mini cooper 007. that's a cool name, isn't it? bet i know what kind of car that person is driving. join our waze team. >> the mini cooper or an aston martin. we're halfway through the week now. it's wednesday. just zipping on by, right? >> yeah, whatever it is. i think you're going to need a convertible and lots of sunscreen. >> for today, yes. absolutely, this weekend, you'll be closing the convertible because the temperatures will be dropping. it will still be nice on saturday. we'll have a cloudy start at

responsibility for that loss for a moment, and then blamed other factors like fbi director jim comey, who had a bizarre last-minute announcement he was reopening the investigation into her e-mails. that set off president trump, who said on twitter, fbi director comey was best thing that ever happened to hillary clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds. it's extremely unusual for a president to publicly criticize his own fbi director. more pucukeural still because comey is investigating the white house and its investigations to the kremlin, and he will be testifying today in front of congress. this is one those cases, sam and laura, where maybe the president shouldn't poke the fbi director, not today. >> yeah. timing is not the best. thank you very much, scott mcgrew. scott, of course, examines our president's tweets, executive orders and speeches each and every morning. and he says it's a two-way street. you can reach scott easily
