temperatures in the upper 70s and then it comes back down going into the evening. so a few spots will reach the low 80s. we're all spending more time outside, and if you're allergic to grass, pollen, it's moderate right now. we also have a moderate amount of tree pollen, with mostly juniper and pine as well. so we're going to have some nice and comfortable weather to start out this week, but then as we head toward the middle of the week, some changes ahead, even as that storm system clips f northern california and the pacific northwest, we'll start to see some high pressure building across the desert southwest, and that's going to cause some warmer air here in the bay area, so the winds shift direction, so we go from an onshore wind flow and cooler air to the winds blowing offshore and temperatures heating up into the mid to upper 80s by the week's end. headed into saturday and sunday, we're in the mid 80s, while san francisco will have a slight warmup. we'll just see more sunshine, and mike, you're seeing that early backup at the bay bridge. >> yes, you know, but i think
kari it's because a lot of folks after a holiday try to get in for the early commute and it will ease off a little bit, that's what i'm hoping today because we had this backup forming just before 5:10 this morning. it's 5:19 now. the metering lights should be turned on and the fastrak lanes are moving well. a lot of folks maybe skipped work last week or took vacation days, whatever they want to call t maybe early burst to check the email the big backup of email. no problems through most of contra costa county. the crash up at west 80 shows no problem, it'sen othe shoulder now. there was some debris in lanes should be clearing as well. some debris headed toward the dumbarton bridge toll plaza from 880, so we'll see how that fares out for fremont and newark and the south bay shows no delay. here is that drive coming in out of the altamont, there's slowing but by the time you get toward north flynn road you're at speed. good volume here. we expect slowing through the dublin interchange of course with 680, west 580.
across the san mateo wrinbridge steady volume of traffic, no problems. the peninsula cleared but a lot of folks getting back to work compared to last week. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. 5:20 for you right now. world famous singer stevie wonder is dealing with health issues this morning. the upcoming procedure that's forcing him to take a break from the stage. there's no such thing as a born winner. so start driving and don't stop. because no one takes off at the finish line. and the only way to get that trophy, is to take it. net generation. official youth tennis of the usta. ♪

today in southern california a major ruling is expected in representative duncan hunter's trial. the san diego lawmaker and his wife were indicted on charges that they used more than $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses. he is asking for a venue change for the trial, which is set to start in september. hunter's team also wants the charges dismissed. margaret hunter pleaded guilty last month and agreed to testify against her husband. 5:45, and iran says that it will step up its production of nuclear materiel today. >> no reaction from u.s. president trump. >> the u.s. will have trouble responding to this. while iran's actions today violate the nuclear deal, we are the ones who pulled out of the nuclear deal, not iran. iran says it will increase the quality of the uranium it's processing, enriching it above 4%. to be absolutely clear, they can't use that for a bomb. you need enrichment in the high 90s to make a bomb, but it is a
deliberate provocation, aimed at pushing allies back to the negotiating table. secretary of state mike pompeo will be addressing the press in less than hour. we expect he will address the iran issue. the main plan though is to talk about aligning america's foreign policy with a new human rights policy. what exactly that means? we don't know. we'll find out more shortly. we do know the white house is very friendly towards people with incredibly poor human rights records. several accused of ordering murders. we'll know more come 6:45. the usual shakeup in the justice department. the government lawyers defending president trump's push to put a citizenship question on the census will no longer be a part of that team pushing for the change. a different group of lawyers at justice are going to take over for those lawyers, but it's not clear what they can do. the supreme court's already said they can't add the questions to the census. it was the government in fact
that pushed for a speedy decision, saying it had to be made before july 1st or it would be too late. now the government, which lost the case says well maybe it's not too late. the trump administration also pushing the courts to strike down obamacare. that case could be decided tomorrow in federal court. this has a potential to really shake up the presidential elections. if obamacare were struck down, millions of americans would lose their health care potentially driving them away from the very republicans who were pushing for that change. we're watching everything that's happening in washington, as again mike pompeo due to speak in beabout an hour. follow me on twitter, i' i'm @scottmcgrew. squaw valley final ski day was yesterday and video from the resort shows people skiing in jeans and t-shirts. some of them. the tahoe ski resort opened in november with almost entirely
manmade snow but then the weather took a quick turn in the winter and snowstorms made for the third largest snow season in the resort's history. a total 719 inches, which of course led to this post fourth of july skiing. what's funny is that we're looking at this video about skiing and talking about allergy forecasts at the same time. >> hey, that's bay area for you. we're going to also see a wide range in temperatures, not only from here to tahoe, but also just within the ar, as we are starting out with some low clouds and fog over oakland right now, that marine layer extending for the morning hours from the coast into the valleys, and so we are starting out with your morning commute in brentwood, with a lot of clouds and some upper 50s, but there will be some clearing heading through late morning, and we're up to about 68 degrees at 10:00, and 74 degrees at noon, and we see our warmup happening fairly slowly because our high temperatures will be a little bit cooler than where we should be for early july, reaching 75
degrees in san jose and in livermore, 80 in antioch and 74 degrees in napa today, with oakland reaching 66, san francisco stays in the lower 60s. and we are seeing some mostly cloudy skies over the south bay right now. as you're getting dressed, grab a jacket. it is a little cool out there. maybe some long sleeves but the rest of the day you'll be comfortable with short sleeves or a t-shirt and as we go rough the rest of the week, we do have some changes ahead. even though it's cool today and tomorrow, by the middle of the week, we will watch a storm system farther to the north moving into the pacific northwest, while high pressure builds across the desert southwest, and that's going to change our wind direction. so we start out with an onshore cool wind flow, but by the end of the week, that desert southwest high pressure makes it hotter here in the bay area. so we're going from the mid-70s today for the inland areas to the mid 80s by the weekend, and a lot more sunshine in that forecast. mike, you've put up the.
choer, how is it looking at the dumbarton bridge? >> sky ranger is just getting up there. i'll get out of your way. you see that we have one lane with the flares off and looks like we have two lane getting by. chp still says innier report they only have one lane getting by but sky ranger shows two lanes of traffic. it is jammed up. as they panned back toward the fremont and newark side it was jammed across the span from the high-ri high-rise. the maps focus on the activity there, i'll review that video and let you know if there's anything else of note. traffic westbound at least one lane is blocked from fremont and newark in toward the menlo park/east palo alto side. use the san mateo bridge because the traffic is moving smoothly. we are picking up the volume. as we track that dumbarton bridge, the san mateo bridge may become a factor and that may tend to clog up counter commute headed northbound 880. right now, we don't see a problem. also 237, let me show you what waze timed out.
our partners at waze timed out the routes across the dumbarton bridge from fremont, union city, over in toward san carlos, the commute for a lot of folks there and across that green section, that will be 48 minutes. we'll save you 15 minutes by going the longer route down toward 237. nbc bay area wazers is the name of the team you should join to get that constant update on the information. back out to the maps, we're showing a smooth flow of traffic at the bay bridge as well. we have the backup at the toll plaza, but i want to show you the live look. the fastrak lanes are moving relatively smoothly, that's better news from the earlier backup. those flashing lights, do not be alarmed. it's a larger vehicle, it will make its way through the toll plaza and across the bridge just fine. the flashing lights to give it more profile so folks know it's wider in the lanes so just be careful. back to you. >> good advice there, mike. happening now for you, a georgia sheriff's deputy is dead and a manhunt is under way for the suspects. hall county sheriff's deputy was shot and killed last night following a stolen car chase.
sheriff officials say the deputies were attempting to stop a stolen car they believe was involved in several weekend burglaries. when that car they were chasing crashed, police continued the chase on foot. police say there was exchange of gunfire, and that deputy was shot. next and all new this hour, more frustration this morning for movie pass subscribers. they can't see any movies. the reason the troubled service is shutting down for now. but first an ancient world wonder needs some repair work. the new method china is using to keep the great wall great. you're watching "today in the bay."

>> just lit up when she saw your face. >> she won't forget you. >> and you won't forget her. >> that's ahead at 7:00 this morning on the "today" show. it's a sure thing in the summer, longer days, hotter days and also an increase in bugs. as always doctors emphasize bug bite prevention especially when it comes to ticks, mosquitos and bees. experts say load up on insect repellant, which means applying it on top of the sunscreen. >> you want to apply a thin layer to all of your exposed skin. you can also apply it on the outside of your clothes as well. the repellants that do well against mosquitos tend to do well against ticks. >> i did not know you put it on after you sunscreen. good to know. other tips, don't keep open containers of water in the yard, don't leave sitting water around. keep the grass and the weeds cut back to keep the tick population
down. so new for you today the great wall of china is being repaired and initial attempt using concrete to fix an area of uneven pavement covered up the original wall. so the government is using more traditional techniques. they now use hoists to put replacement stones in place using bricks that were originally in the collapsed sections of the ancient wall. the section outside of beijing is the most popular section, attracting more than 10 million visitors last year alone. [ horn sounding ]. you see right here it happened again, a horn blaring during another close call involving a huge cruise ship, this time in venice, italy. you can see right here that ship nearly collided with an outdoor cafe along the lagoon. rain, wind and hail were coming down when witnesses captured this video. the apparent close call comes just weeks after another cruise ship rammed a much smaller boat
along the venice canal. >> yikes. we can't tell how tall that ship is from this vantage point but it had to be scary. looks luke a movie almost. voters in maryland will no longer be required to identify themselves as male or female. "the baltimore sun" reports the maryland state board of elections will allow voters to choose x or unspecified as gender. existing paper forms that only offered the option of male and female will be used until they run out but then those new forms will have that third option. the state elections board voted unanimously in favor of that change last week. another setback for movie pass, the subscription service is shutting down temporarily. the struggling company says it will work to improve subscriber experience. according to "variety" movie pass is working on a new version of its app and fixing technical issues. during the process, movie pass says it will not accept new subscrib subscribers. current subscribers won't be charged during that shutdown so that's good news and will get credit back for days impacted.
the company says the process will take several weeks. in the middle of summer movie season. that stinks. spider-man is at the top of the weekend box office. >> the latest film earned more than $93 million from friday to sunday. it actually debuted on tuesday and made more than $185 million since then. "toy story 4" was in second. >> the one guy who is the only one who remembered the beatles? >> who would have thought? right now at 6:00 the breaking in us to tell you about, a busy night for police in san francisco, investigating an overnight homicide. we don't know much yet, but we are live in the city asking the questions for you. social network summit, at 6:15, president trump's last big tech but the bay area companies not yet invited that are confusing some people. and racing and racket.
a continued fight in contra costa county. the fight some neighbors are putting up, and the new comments the owners are making. "today in the bay" continues right now. good monday morning to you, starting the week off right with "today in the bay," i'm marcus washington. >> i'm kris sanchez in for laura garcia. you can see the cloud cover at the golden gate bridge and also over san jose and it is cooling things off nicely i think. >> i think it will be mostly cloudy for several hours this morning and we're also seeing the drizzle right now in san francisco and along the coast and as we get that live look outside in san jose, of course the clouds are a little bit higher there, and our temperatures in sunnyvale will be in the upper 50s, headed into the low 70s. we see our normal high temperatures about 82 degrees, we're not going to make it there today, but it is in the forecast. we'll talk more about that in a few minutes and mike, that alert continues for the dumbarton bridge. >> it does, and so sky ranr
