6:15 am
good wednesday morning. right now at 6:14 let's check out our temperature trend in danville. we'll start out with some 70s at 10:00, and it's going to warm up fast today. we're looking at some upper 80s in some spots. we'll reach the low 90s. get out there early. we'll talk about what's ahead and the smoke you're seeing to the south bay coming up in a few minutes. we're at the toll plaza, to the north, the bay bridge, the backup. brakes tapping, folks a little bit of a wait. how things are developing coming up. good morning and very happy wednesday to you. facebook is not going to have a very good day today. not only did its meeting with civil rights activists not work out early word of a report that it economies ecommissioned on i. a preliminary draft obtained by "the new york times," nbc has not seen it.
6:16 am
"the times" says the civil rights repor approach to civil rights remains too reactive and piecemeal and says when ceo mark zuckerberg allows people like donald trump to make threats through his posts, the company is elevating the president's speech while kre censoring others. it says facebook risks an echo chamber of extremism. facebook's mark zuckerberg and sheryl sandberg met with civil rights activists yesterday to discuss that advertising boycott. it's been very effective. activists say they were disappointed in the meeting. in a conference call after the meeting rashad robinson, head of color of change, said, quote, facebook showed up to the meeting expecting an "a" for attendance. attendance alone is not enough. robinson will also speak on the "today" show coming up at 7:00.
6:17 am
>> what's going to continue to happen unless facebook fixes things is corporations are going to put up ads and they're going to show up next to white nationalists and white supremacist organizations and groups that are calling for a second civil war, who are saying some of their most hateful and egregious things. >> you can see more on the "today" show coming up at 7:00. a quick check of the markets, mildly higher. the futures call the best that investors place after a pretty solid drubbing yesterday as we were talking about earlier. one day the markets think the economy is reopening so up they go. the next day they realize that, wow, you were reporting the new case numbers. the economy is suffering and down the markets go. >> i think we've gotten used to a little whiplash. >> roller coaster. >> indeed. thank you very much, scott. entertainment, the largest movie chain is nearing a restructuring deal to avoid a bankruptcy filing.
6:18 am
amc has seen profits crash because it had to shut down more than 1,000 theaters worldwide because of the pandemic. the movie chain warned last month that it could report a quarterly loss of nearly $2.5 billion. amc's u.s. theaters are scheduled to reopen july 30th depending on local ordinances, of course. also, trending this morning vanessa bryant is reminiscing on a sweet gift from her late husband kobe bryant. on monday she posted a picture of a green dress. the iconic dress was worn by sarah jessica parker's character in "sex and the city." she was taken back by emotion and kobe is still showing his love from heaven. that dress is gorgeous. such a thoughtful move. >> a really sweet thing that she came across it probably when she needed it. these things happen. kari, we are looking at the gorgeous sunrise behind you, i
6:19 am
would say even prettier than bradshaw's dress. >> how about the tulle fog. >> ooh! here we are seeing it rolling over the hills as we look at sausalito this morning. it is a beautiful sunrise. this is helping keep some of our coastal areas a lot cooler. then you head down to the south bay. it's going to be warmer this afternoon. let's check out our temperature trend. we'll see our temperatures in the low 60s here at 8:00, and then as we go through the day we'll warm up into the upper 80s. normal is about 81 degrees. we're going a little bit above that today. you'll notice it will be hotter today compared to yesterday but we're looking at the wind direction and wind speed. that has a huge difference in our air quality because we do still have the crews fire smoldering down there to the east of gilroy. and if the wind shifts, brings
6:20 am
it in from the south, it could push some of the smoke into the south bay as well as the south county. right now we're locking at a northwesterly wind which tends to be drier and as it picks up later today our wind speeds will be at about 15 to 20 miles per hour in some areas. and then that will also help push that smoke off towards the south and east. so we're looking at temperatures today that will reach into the upper 80s for the inland east bay and a few low 90s as well with some upper 80s in parts of the north bay while the coastal areas stay cool. we are going to stay in this weather pattern but a little bit closer as we go into the rest of today. i did not say siri. let's check out what's going on with our forecast. our temperatures in the low 90s, and up to the mid-90s by the end of the weekend. early next week our temperatures in the upper 80s. and then for san francisco, it stays cool here. our natural air conditioning
