6:16 am
you see their live futures on the big board there. worth remembering, money doesn't go away, it just moves. you might lose money individually but as a unit it sometimes leaves equities, stocks, and moves to safety, bonds, and that's happens from time to time especially when investors feels there are risks, and there are risks, as investors are wondering if we are as far out of the pandemic as we first thought. the delta variant moving through the united states, and there's another variant on the radar. president trump is suing facebook, google and twitter. his legal team is made up of lawyers from big tobacco, because, quote, tobacco has the best lawyers. he calls facebook's actions unconstitutional. as you well know, the first amendment prevents government from denying you the right of
6:17 am
free speech. facebook is a private company. no matter how many times it sensors you it is not a government and is not covered under the first amendment. remember, congress shall make no law, and he claims in the lawsuit, defendant facebook status rises beyond that of a private company to that of a state actor. as such the defendant is constrainted by the first amendment. the whole lawsuit depends, it hangs on, this idea that facebook is part of the u.s. government the way that nasa or the fbi are, but it's not. going up against big tech, though, is popular and perhaps profitable. trump's lawsuit sent out an
6:18 am
appeal for fundraising, and it's not a political donation, and it seems to be, laura and marcus, an unwinnable suit, but doesn't mean he's not taking donations for it. >> no kidding. thanks, scott. and then bracing for the biggest back-to-school shopping season in at least five years. a new report out today, spending will surpass $32 billion. that's up 15% compared to some rules. there are still challenges like shipping. ? >> in the meantime, kids are like, don't talk about school just yet but vacation. like this. tightrope walkers breaking the world record for the longest

6:20 am
big number of lanes, and that's good stuff. a little slowing still. this is a gradual build as we are going westbound. this is not a problem. yesterday the metering lights were turned on a little earlier and disrupted the pattern and that was the only thing causing the backup early at the toll plaza. right now it's an easy drive. highway 4 showing a bit of slowing now. we added these numbers up a little more. highway 4, wasco, a smooth drive. it's a pleasant drive right now, kari. what do you have for us? >> yeah, we're starting out foggy with a live look outside in san francisco. you see mist and drizzle here and will get clearing this afternoon. temperatures slightly warmer. it's also cooling off the immediate areas near the coastline, the inland valleys. it's going to be hotter. look at santa clara valley,

mid-90s in morgan hill. we will see highs in san jose warmer, reaching mid-80s today. we could see highs up to 101 in antioch. livermore will be in the mid-90s, and we will see upper 70s for a high today in hayward. keeping it cool in half moon bay, 64 there. 80 in redwood city. more sunshine on the other side of the hills there. for san francisco reaching 70 downtown, and our north bay high reaching 90 in novato, but ukiah reaching 104 today and that's where the excessive heat warnings will be going up tomorrow. the high pressure will continue to get pressure and will be slow to move, so it will feel more like the central valley and parts of the bay area as the heat ramps up. look at the wind direction around the high pressure, like a southerly wind. the ocean breeze will be so weak, it doesn't help us outgoing across the peninsula and parts of the bay.
6:22 am
take a look at your forecast. we're going to reach possibly up to 111 degrees on saturday. be prepared for that. this is dangerous heat we will see as we go into the weekend. it does back off by early next week. we will see the temperatures cooling down while san francisco stays in the 70s. joining us now, vianey arana highlighting spots of climate change. >> before heading to italy, or snowpack has been depleted since may. this only adds to california's drought and fire concerns. to put that in perspective, 30% of california -- or 30% of california's water supply comes from that sierra snowpack. when we see the lack of water supply, well, that only makes our drought conditions worse. you saw the drought monitor released as of this morning, and
