10:37 pm
think tomorrow going to probably be the coolest day of the week. and then we'll watch temperatures begin to warm up a bit. but. san francisco. you see the clouds moving in overhead as we speak. the temperatures kind of reflecting all that marine air moving on shore. you see a lot of 50's out there right now. 60's in concord in morning antioch, but otherwise temperatures staying fairly cool. now laura is forecast gets very interesting. got the cloud deck out there now. i think we see a little less cloud cover as we get the weekend, although likely going to continue to see some fog along the coastline will be a right throughout the weekend. not really going to get an offshore wind. so a cool temperatures out toward the beaches start to warm up a little bit inland. then as we get to monday, lou, that's we're look lousy starts come up from the south. that's what happens as high pressure begins to build back of the desert southwest some of that monsoonal moisture kind of wraps around that ridge rolled back into california likely going to see more thunderstorms popping up over the sierra nevada. we'll have to watch for the chance of more wildfires getting started in the thunderstorms as well. and that's going to kind of play out. i think a lot of part of the week, too. so maybe it's a muggy conditions here in the bay area as we get in the beginning of this next
10:38 pm
week as we start to see that monsoon begin to kick in and going to be more common as we get toward lot apart of the summer months. temperatures around the bay area. for tomorrow. we're enjoying a lot of sunshine after some morning fog inside the bay. lot of 60's to mid 70's in the santa clara valley 50's with that fog along the coastline. i think we're looking very comfortable in many spots inland. some low 80's, i think of the warmer spots and it's pretty nice for this time of year. little bit below the average but not bad. we warm back up starting on friday, saturday and sunday. look. well, almost going to see a lot of sunshine coming our way. then we start to talk some muggy conditions on monday with some of that subtropical moisture coming in and that's always an issue at this time of year. you know, it's kind of strange. you think of low pressure bringing you the chance of rain and showers and thunderstorms. this is actually moisture. the gets caught up ridge of high pressure called monsoonal moisture coming up out of the deserts of arizona and sometimes that sparked those thunderstorms okay. we don't want all right. thank you. on and as the nation continues to
10:39 pm
reopen from the pandemic. you have likely notice the price of just about everything just keeps going up and it really is. yeah. kron. 4 grant lodes joins us now live in the studio to explain why all of this is happening and when hopefully sooner than later, things will finally level off. yeah. you notice it at the gas pump. certainly definitely. if you don't have one of those and if you look at used car prices recently there and say, yeah, if you think about selling a used car. now is the time because it boy, people are low pay. >> and nationwide. we're actually seeing the biggest jump in consumer prices right now. since 2008 and that is a result of several factors. it includes a population out there. people want to b%y things and go places after the the lockdown and people have their stimulus checks. there's also a supply chain issue the supply chain being handcuffs because of a struggle to hire workers and these high prices for raw good. its people are
10:40 pm
building overall goodes nationwide are almost 5 and a half percent more expensive these days and and some things like i said, are really crazy used car and truck prices have gone up by more than 45%. while new car prices are up. but about 5%. you see there's a shortage in computer chips. we've been reporting on it. new cars need those chips, which means car companies are just not able to produce an of vehicles these days to keep up with them. and so more people are turning to use vehicles including rental car companies are trying to buy up used cars to quickly replenish their fleets after they had to sell off a lot of their cars early in the pandemic to get that money to stay afloat. but even if you do find the you're able to afford and find a new car filling it up with gas. that will cost you 45% more. then in recent years, experts, though, are confident that prices will start to even out
10:41 pm
and even drop in coming months. prices are higher. now than they were last year because americans are finally able to travel. i just thought that context was important come this time next year. >> that will have dissipated back to the normal amount to some of them and that we're used to seeing. >> and here in the bay area. we have seen almost everything spike to, for example, over the last 2 months. the cost of meat poultry fish eggs has jumped more than 6%. the reason increased demand limited supply once again. but even if the demand is tempered and the supply catches up some economists believe the government must wind down its spending to help curb these higher prices. >> people were able to save quite a bit during the pandemic because they simply weren't able to spend the money out at restaurants and shops the way we normally do. however, if we allow inflation
