president biden to discuss gun violence in the wake of the vta rail yard shooting. >> tracie, who else is talking and taking part in this? >> reporter: so today's meeting at the white house is going to include local leaders, local elected officials, law enforcement, and the attorney general, merrick garland. the idea here is to get them onboard with the president's plan to deal with gun violence. that's the strategy that the white house unveiled a few weeks ago where they were talking about not only investing in communities, helping people who are formerly incarcerated, providing more jobs but getting more guns off the street and stemming the flow of weapons. we do know that this is a big priority for the administration.
5:02 am
>> and, tracie, the government is limited in terms of what they can do with gun control. what is the biden administration doing to help cities like san jose? >> reporter: so one of the things the administration wants to do is to give support to local law enforcement. so part of the president's plan was to roll out new tools, and they haven't specified what that would be but new tools to help law enforcement trying to deal with criminals and trying to get these guns off the stres. a big focus is how to step the flow of weapons and that will have to involve local law enforcement. really trying to flesh out this plan that the white house released. >> interesting what will come of it. thank you, tracie. san francisco's mayor and police chief set to unveil the city's crime stats for the fir

change is allowing more microbes to thrive. it is lower, that is certainly the case with all the boats out there on the water. let's talk about the cars out there on the road for this monday morning, mike. it will be interesting to see if traffic will pick up even more as more people are heading back into the actual work place. >> especially in the south bay. i think so. kari what do we have in store as far as temperatures go as well? >> yeah, we've seen in some spots some fog and mist and drizzle and it is mostly clear as the sunrise in walnut creek. a much cooler day as our temperatures go from the mid to upper 50s to the low 80s in some spots reaching up to 78 degrees in san jose. 87 in martinez but look at the difference we'll have in spots like farther to the north. ukiah will reach 101.
5:09 am
we'll talk about this spread in temperatures coming up. >> we see more slowing than i expected to see on a monday at this time. there may be early traffic. the google plex in mountain view and expansion throughout san jose. there may be more traffic building over the week in toward august as we look at some folks returning to work. closures for north 242 up until possibly 10:00 a.m. the counter commute comes this way out of concord. your alternate would be north 680 to westbound highway 4. it's not that much longer and it's clear. that closure will the bay bridge toll plaza without any slowings. richard branson is back and

5:13 am
right now 5:12. as you're stepping out the door this morning in the east bay let's check out martinez. we're at 56 degrees. a chance to cool off and get a fresh start to the week. and we're going to see our temperatures cooler today even with all of the sunshine we will see this afternoon heading to the mid-80s. a look at our microclimates coming up. and looking at the nimitz where traffic flows nicely. well populated and also well populated vasco road. the reminder that is reopening after the weekend fire, vasco at byron and 580 open for business this morning. well, good morning. very happy monday to you as well. elon musk will be in court this week testifying as early as today about tesla's purchase of solar city back in 2016.
5:14 am
it was seen at the time as a bad idea by many. solar city was running out of money. tesla was not in that great shape at the time either. musk pushed the purchase through and tesla shareholders sued. that's why we're dealing with a court case this morning. an important detail, the people who ran solar city are family members and the accusation is musk forced tesla to buy solar city to enrich family members even at a cost of tesla to take on too much of solar city's liability. whether or not that's true, that's up to a court. here is the important point. it might not have been a good idea to buy solar city but it did not hurt tesla. stock is up solidly, it's on the s&p 500. speaking of the stock market, it will start this fine monday morning at new records. stocks shrugged off thursday's drubbing. various companies will open their books.
5:15 am
we also get very important inflation data this week. inflation is a real risk. you've already seen it at the grocery store. it would be a good time to ask for a raise. a lot of companies are paying more not because of inflation but having so much trouble finding workers and sign-on bonuses as well. papa john's is paying out bonuses. mcdonald's raising workers 10%. this is not franchises. they can't control those. chipotle says it will pay $15 an hour across the board. higher where legally mandated. when i say ask for a raise i'm not saying it's a raise. if there's inflation you're asking your boss could you please pay me the same amount next year as this year by paying me 3% more. >> right, exactly. >> otherwise you're paying me less. >> with inflation everything is going up. very tough times. talking about the big launch over the week. scott went to see the historic
5:16 am
first launch a few years back. now historic moments in new mexico. >> this is so cool. richard branson flew to the edge of space yesterday. virgin galactic's first full crew flight there and this is the same ship he hopes to ferry passengers as soon as next year. if you can afford a quarter million price tag, which i can't, the trip is definitely what it lived up to. >> i've dreamt what it would be like to be in space looking back at this incredible earth. it's impossible to describe just how magnificent it is. >> that's at 7:00 a.m. >> he dreamed about it when he was a kid. can you imagine completing that. >> all coming true.
5:17 am
>> after a record breaking weekend scarlett johansson said she will not return to her role as black widow. >> don't cry, though. it scored $80 million, the most for any movie during the pandemic and earned an additional $60 million in streaming from disney plus. johansson says she is satisfied with the ending. she added she would like to collaborate with future marvel projects. >> yeah, me, too. >> we're all available. >> doesn't have the same weight as scarlett johansson. >> the weight of what we're experiencing weatherwise, probably a sigh of relief because we're seeing the temperatures still high but lower than we experienced this weekend. >> yeah, it was so hot over the weekend but the coastline was
5:18 am
nice and cool. a few clouds in san jose, we're going to see the cooling clouds and let's take a look at those temperatures and where we're headed for today. how about 78 degrees. so much more comfortable than the 90s over the south bay but it's still going to be hot in morgan hill. and not too bad there, mid-80s. to the east bay where we will see a spread in temperatures. you head down to walnut creek, check out oakland. 68 degrees and hayward reaching 70. near the coast, upper 50s this afternoon and it's going to be hard to shake those clouds. over to redwood city clear. reaching 76 degrees. mostly 60s in san francisco. breezy fog and drizzle to start out the morning. for the north bay look at a high of 103 in clear lake.
5:19 am
santa rosa reaching 80. so what's happening here? the high pressure that caused that intense heat is easing up. we'll see the return of a strong ocean breeze. it's going to bring in some of that cool air off the ocean as well as the deemer layer of fog as we go into the rest of the week. spots like livermore will be cooling off and our temperatures coming up a few more degrees going into the rest of the week. mostly 80s here and i think the coolest day will be thursday as we get some deeper fog near the coast and also some of that cooler air stretching inland. san francisco staying in the 60s throughout the whole workweek. a pleasant start to the week. no major issues. i'll let you know if that's a problem. so far it's just a report coming if.
5:20 am
84, a little slowing. i was worried. it's down to its normal but the note is coming down vasco road. there was a closure over the weekend because of that fire. it has reopened. this morning's drive was just fine. keep that in mind as we look at the drive times. still 19 minutes. there is slowing that just popped up. i will see if it continues or was a blip there. everything else looks great for highway 4 over in towards 242 and concord. northbound 242 still closed overnight. construction going on all mornings northbound from 680 up to concord avenue. an easy drive across the bay bridge. back to you. >> thanks, mike. up next nbc bay area responds. tutoring might help your kids ace their schoolwork. we'll show you where you can sign up for free. i'm investigator chris chmura.

5:31 am
not really the reason we're being asked to conserve energy. yes, we do have a lot of changes here. we're starting out with a clear view. we did have some problems with fires over the weekend. and so now as temperatures cool off, our fire danger will be going down and hopefully we don't see any new starts as we see a westerly wind bringing in higher humidity and some higher humidity does slow the spread of fires. temperatures reaching into the mid-80s. with the fires burning across the region we could see more of that near surface smoke coming in especially by tomorrow. air quality does look good but the smoke could get trained in the marine layer and pushed into the bay area, we could see smoke moving in. let me show you the fires over the past couple of days, the big complex of fires farther to the north but we have the beckwourth complex mostly pushing off to

5:33 am
on our grid which is why california's independent system operator has declared a flex alert for later today. the iso is asking that you conserve energy between 4:00 this afternoon and 9:00 tonight. if you can set your thermostat to 78 degrees or higher if your health permits. avoid using major appliances like your washing machine or dishwasher and turn off unnecessary lights. back here behind me in contra costa county the delta fire that was burning here yesterday is out. that fire burned near vasco just south of byron. vasco was shut down because of the heavy smoke. you can hear behind me people are honking their horns heading in for the commute. vasco road is back open. firefighters responded with crews on the ground and an air attack from above. there are several wildfires burning throughout the state right now. there's one burning northeast of

5:51 am
