9:11 am

also happening today, the oakland city council is expected to authorize and schedule a recall election for mayor sheng thao. it looks like it's going to be in november. it's not the only concern for mayor thao, however, because as you know, the fbi recently raided her home and collected evidence. we're still waiting to hear from the agency about what exactly they're investigating. so stay tuned. also happening today, the local police union is set to make an announcement on the proposed budget cuts by mayor thao and the city council cuts they say will impact the city's fire and police departments. we're going to tell you what they have to say. if that announcement state tuned 9.11, vice president kamala harris is going to be in san francisco today. she is going to arrive at sfo around 10 o'clock. so. >> within the hour, we'll see her arrive. and then she will be delivering remarks at a rip a day. a special political event at 2 o'clock this afternoon. then she will head back to washington, d.c.. it is 9.11, right now. and still ahead on the kron, 4 morning

9:13 am

9:14 am

>> 9.14, is the time. and the weather is the big story today. real close to july 4th in not real. close to 100 way over 100 towns. yeah. >> john, good morning. yeah. if you thought 100 was bad, wait for 100. ted, what is she

9:15 am

yeah. again, this is going to be dangerously hot, honestly for so many inland areas. and that's why we're all stressing finding a cool spot this afternoon. staying hydrated trying to avoid overly exerting yourself really anytime of day these next few days. >> use it as an excuse does take it easy. >> we're looking outside at the embarcadero right here. take a look at how calm both the flag in those palm trees are. there is her o breeze pushing in from the coastline right now. that means 0 access to the ocean. cool there. that can be mother nature is a c for the bay area. and that is when temperatures really start to spike this high-pressure ridge immediately to our west is really only resulting in a northerly dry when it mostly for upper elevations, completely creating a barrier from cool coastal air. and that's areas from aside from the immediate coastline are going to be in this excessive heat warning in pink and heat advisory. impeach starting at 11:00am and look the time length of this all the way through 08:00pm on saturday.

9:16 am

those areas in pink, especially prone to heat related illness. if you spend too much time during the afternoon outside, that's why we're talking getting inside. the dec cooling centers are open. maybe a a or the shopping mall. any of those spots just giving yourself your body a chance to regulate for a couple of hours can really help you with this extended heat. we have around the corner kuz. it does put a lot of stress on you being out there even just being in a hot house. if you don't have air conditioning now, fire weather with these red flag warnings in upper elevations. this is due to that dry north wind dropping humidity to 10% as well as the pairing of that with these excessively hot temperatures, any fire start can result in the rapidly spreading fire through the 4th of july into the weekend. so fire safety heat safety. these are the things we need to think about. first and foremost, as we do plan out this holiday week, 70's to 80's and san francisco today, golden gate park is a good option at 73, coolest spot being montero at 69 does not sound bad compared to the 90's and triple digits that much of

9:17 am

the rest of us are going to be going through. so trip to the coast. i know that's not an option for everyone, but if you can, it's great. a nice escape. san jose cooling centers open escape from 100 degrees. fremont at 98 pleasanton and livermore. that's not ok, find a cool spot to get to danville on the creek. conquered in antioch are very hottest at one 10. anything with ac is going to be rescued this afternoon. pittsburgh, fairfield and vacaville at 109, th in triple digits continue for much of the rest of the north bay tomorrow. just as hot if not hotter than today and not a lot of relief after that, either 4th of july, still scorcher as will be the weekend. it does look like that. we at least back up the triple digits by monday of next week. >> rain. all right, john, thanks for that. if you're hitting the roads right now, things are looking great in the 9 o'clock hour. 42 minute ride. 85 to menlo park to 82 even to 37. we're not seeing any major issues there. 13 minutes traveling into the city this morning. meter lights are off san mateo

9:18 am

bridge around 18. still no accidents or hazards. there. travel along 80 crockett out towards the main start to build just past richmond. 19 minute ride and sadly angled to 37 around 40 minutes. all right. james, back to you. >> time now to talk winners and losers on wall street with financial expert rob black. rob, good morning. i'm gazing across the markets are a bit mixed summer up. some are down but not by a whole lot. what are you seeing? >> when she's tomorrow, segment on air conditions. just less than a at the weather report. yeah. erica. mission stocks been really good investments last 5, 10, 15 years. but more on that right now the markets are searching for direction. it's july second, we just started a new quarter. were half lead and the s p 500 up 15% of the year. i think it goes higher from here. driven by tech stocks as their fundamentals look great with i think coming together. so maybe another 10% higher by the end of the year.

9:19 am

jay powell is out there talking day in east saying things like progress, united states on inflation that i still want you know, not quite it's coming. that'll be another catalyst for more of a market rally. not just a tech rally. i like what i'm seeing. we've had a great year so far. if we're side ways for 6 months, i'm happy. but i do see some snares for don't okay. good enough. we've got 4th of july this week, obviously. so we'll see. >> what happens on that front? let's talk about summer travel. i just got back from a week of a vacationing flights were fine, but i understand they're going to go up as we get deeper into the summer and that could spell delays. i don't know what you think. >> yeah. when we had best travel day of the year on may 24th and we had our flights delayed. 24 6,000 flights. so now we just set another record on june 20rd of 2.9 9 million travelers through tsa. well, tonight we have traveling through july 8th that's up

9:20 am

5.4% year-over-year. and that tells me expect some delays. ultimately there's a lot of challenges creating these delays boeing has some safety issues and that's delaying delivery its to late inspection of their planes. air traffic controllers. we don't have enough of them and they're fatigued with where we need about another 3,000. if i were 20 and didn't have a direction, i consider becoming an air traffic controller. that's good pay. and he retire early and on top of there's one more thing. extreme weather sticks. all this extreme heat creates heat waves and extreme heat waves create hot air hot air makes thin air thin air equals turbulence. turbulence. eagles, weather delays. so as we're combining the heat with the record travel, expect delays this summer. no doubt. >> and next week we've got what amazon's prime day and looks like. we've got others jumping in on the 2. also in the same week, are we going like head to head?

9:21 am
