7:19 am
lingering. current temperatures in the 50s throughout. pretty comfortable to start. here is a look at satellite radar. you can see the cloud cover over san francisco and zooming us out. the reason i'm showing you this, these are the two systems that have been interacting to bring us cooler weather. down in southern california, they got a little bit of shower activity. if you notice towards portland, seattle area, some showers mainly for the bay. but first your highs for today. 60s and 70s, mostly sunny, especially for interior areas like san jose, concord, antioch. but it will be windy. we have already seen gusty conditions. so expect on and off again wind gusts through the entire afternoon as this cold front continues to make its pass. tomorrow is expected to be our coolest day of the week. with that in mind, if you have to travel for an essential reason to lake tahoe or anything of that nature, there is a lake
7:20 am
wind advisory in place. they are talking about this possibility of seeing some rain and shower, even know activity. let's look at the hour by hour activity. if you notice, the time bar is right at the top. saturday 12:00, so noon today. stays pretty clear. and then notice that sort of activity popping up primarily to the north. but if you look where the sierra is, you can see that rain and also the pink and purple blue yellow hues are showers. so we'll transform from rain to snow showers in the sierra. 7:00 p.m. a little instability pushing through, which means the possibility of seeing some showers, maybe along the coast. . it is a very small chance, so not expecting a widespread rainy sunday, just a little instability early on. looking out ahead into monday and tuesday, notice how the color is orange and red now. that means high pressure rebuilds. guess what happens to those temperatures? they start to warm up again.
7:21 am
we go from comfortable 70s in through tomorrow again, in through breezy conditions. monday it starts to warm up into the upper 70s. by tuesday, wednesday and thursday, upper 80s, low 90s. check out san francisco. windy to breezy tomorrow and the 70s make their return heading into tuesday. coming up next, i will talk about how california is look in. >> look forward to those numbers. thanks so much. it is 7:21. still ahead, taking money away from police. where san francisco's mayor now says she wants to send that money instead. ing all of us. and it's testing the people on the front lines of this fight most of all. so abbott is getting new tests into their hands, delivering the critical results they need. and until this fight is over,

welcome back. there is a new proposal in san francisco that may be creating some new divisions between the mayor and the city's police force. the mayor announced plans to divert funds from san francisco's police department
7:24 am
and into the african-american community. today in the bay explores what that will mean both for the community the money would go to and the department the money would extinct species. >> reporter: for james who feels the pride in the neighborhood he grew up, he never knew it as a place to necessarily be proud of. >> you had to jump up over a stair to get to the next stair. >> reporter: he watched painful redevelopment. >> the african-americans have been displaced. >> reporter: these days as director of the community center, he is constantly on the hunt for funds to support the struggling african-american community he grew up in. in response to the nationwide outcry for police reform, the mayor and supervisor announced plans to redirect funding from the city's police department to groups in the black community.
7:25 am
he says his center could use the money. >> if you ask me do we need some funding? do we need some help in this community, i'm going to tell you yes. >> reporter: the proposal didn't say much money they will take from the budget. even though his department is already short 100 officers, he understands the mayor's intent. >> as painful as any cuts will be, we are committed to doing what we have to do to change the narrative on policing in this country and in this city. >> reporter: but the police officers union is critical of the plan saying the mayor can still support the african-american community without cutting badly needed police funds. >> you don't have to take that from the police budget. we're a city that had a $12.3 billion even before all the other stuff happens. >> reporter: the mayor will include the police department cuts when she submits her budget in august. he hopes some of that money will trickle back to a community trying to hang on to its pride.

good saturday morning. i hope you are having a pretty good start to your morning. take this weekend to self-reflect, give yourself a little self-love. call up your friends. do what you need to do and head outside and enjoy because it is going to be a fantastic afternoon. as a matter of fact, let's get my graphics going because we do have a live look over some of the beautiful shots of the bay area.
7:43 am
and if you want to go ahead and take my graphic, 5 5 degrees in san francisco. it will remain windy for the rest of the afternoon. you can see we have that cloud cover sweeping over san francisco. i'm going to zoom this out so you can get a better idea of the two systems we have been tracking that brought on this colder weather. we have a system to our south. through portland and see yattle that will drop through tomorrow. first let's take a look at your micro climate highs. 71 for san jose. 69 in pal low alto. what a nice relief compared to the triple digit heat and the 90s. here is a look at the on and off winds. check out san francisco, 22 plus miles an hour. in through san jose, it will start to kick up when it comes
7:44 am
to those gusts. i want to show you this gorgeous shot of south lake tahoe because there is a lake wind advisory in effect through this evening for lake tahoe because of this system. by 12:30, most of the bay area is pretty clear. look at what starts to pop up. instability where you see the green peak and blue hues. a mix of rain and snow showers. if you do have to travel up there for an essential condition, it will be get gusty at times. looking ahead, nstem, about 30% chance of seeing some rain. there goes that lake wind advisory through this evening. now, this is released this week. about 56% of california, mainly northern california, is in some sort of draught. 17% right now is definitely looking more like a, i would
7:45 am
say, moderate draught, about 40%. so we definitely need any rain that we can get. but we are officially wild fire season. if you would like to know more about how this impacts california, i did post this on my series. it is about 4% statewide, so we're definitely low on that. provides one-third of the water supply. we will head up monday and tuesday as well. enjoy the 70s before the 80s and 90s make their comeback. let's take a look at the dog walking forecast. she watches bicnks all the time. let's see if we can find binks. binks! he's not even awake for his shift this afternoon. >> he's literally in bed. >> binks, what's up, dude? >> you're showing him in bed right now.
7:46 am
>> mommy bear, this is her baby. >> thanks so much. just shy of 7:46. still ahead, minimizing use of force by police. we investigate the critical data that could bring real change to departments across the country.
7:47 am
7:48 am
according to the u.s. department of justice, nearly 54 million people every year have some sort of interaction with police officers from traffic stops to shootings. in a small percentage of those,
7:49 am
police use physical force. but unless a person is killed, there is no central clearinghouse to keep up with all of those other use of force incidents. experts tell senior investigator steven stock that's a big problem and can lead to instances like the one in minneapolis. >> reporter: this video shows officers using force to control a person deemed a threat to those around him. both police officials and an independent expert all agree this was appropriate given the situation. experts also say police can learn from these incidents by precisely tracking them. >> it's one of the most critical pieces of information we can collect about the police. >> reporter: this doctor chairs the department of criminal justice at seattle university. >> we really do need systemic data collection to help establish the reality of police use of force. >> five years ago, he teamed
7:50 am
with a private company called police strategies, also based in seattle to begin tracking data to show how, when and where police use force. >> with each data, we can start to understand how use of force incidents evolve and hopefully lead to better policies and training so we can try to minimize injury. >> so you can't have an evidence-based policy or evidence-based training if you have no data to back it up. >> reporter: bob is a former prosecutor and assistant director for c safety department. >> without the data to back it up and see a before and after of the training, we don't know if the training has had any impact on how officers behave and how they use force. >> for example, separate research conducted by the use of force project shows that police departments that ban choke holds can significantly reduce the number of incidents that end in death. >> we ban the choke hold. >> reporter: eddy garcia says
7:51 am
his department began giving their use of force data five years ago. san jose is one of only 88 agencies nationwide participating along with daily city and just recently vallejo pd. >> to see a transparent view of this is what your officers are doing, this is when they had to use force and who they are using force on. >> reporter: by using this, the chief has actually changed policy. he now asks his officer to use tasers to subdue unruly subjects than batons and night sticks. critics say officers tend to deploy them too quickly. sometimes with deadly results. but the data in san jose shows actual injuries are down. >> so we were seeing fewer fractures and serious bodily injuries because they were using the taser rather than the baton. >> reporter: the pd saw use of force incidents drop from 2015 to 2019, the time that tracking
7:52 am
has been taking place. and some racial disparities are disappearing. five years ago when san jose arrested a disphispanic man, th was a bigger chance they would use force against them. >> we have a lot more work to do, but i think the expectation is that we are moving that needle in that this tool absolutely helps us do that. >> reporter: the use of force project agrees with those numbers but still gives san jose an f grade, noting that in 2018, hispanics were 3.4 times more likely to have deadly force used against them than white people. >> is that the biggest problem right now, is police just don't know and there is not enough data analytics to say what works? >> you shouldn't implement any reforms if you are unable to measure the impacts. it may be good training or bad
7:53 am
training or maybe a waste of money. >> reporter: there are about 18,000 different law enforcement departments across the u.s. bob scales and others say only if all of them are required to turnover data showing how their officers use force will real reform and change take place. i'm steven stock, nbc bay area news. if you have a story for our investigative unit, give us a call at 888-996-tips or go to our website, we still have a few things ahead, including a look into short term loans. >> perhaps a small loan could help you make ends meet during the pandemic, but there are big red flags. nbc bay area responds next.
7:54 am
7:55 am
for so many bay area
7:56 am
families, making ends meet is more challenging than ever. bills are piling up with little to no money coming in. a sherort-term loan may seem li a great solution. >> the consumer protection bureau has logged complaints. many involve payday loan stores which are easier than ever to get online. california public interest research group is warning that a short-perm payday loan store can have long term consequences. >> these loans have sky high interest rates, often 400% or more. that adds up really quickly and can force borrowers to take up new loans again and loan. >> watch out for lenders who might try to entice you with quick case. 11 payday loan store websites were accused of pulling money out of people's bank accounts
7:57 am
