the parking lot there. long-term parking lot. they are not sure if it's accidental or intentional. >> okay, you know, riders don't want discounted fares because they figure, well, they figure how long is it going to last? >> go back up? so today the bart board votes on whether to temporarily roll back fares. it's one of the ideas as a way to use some surplus money that they have. >> and who loves you, mr. kessler? after a long dry spell, we have not one but two. >> two "blowed ups"! >> would not believe the number of e-mails coming in. >> 5, 6? [ laughter ] >> 7 this morning. >> well, for the last hour or so actually we have been following a water main break reported in contra costa county near richmond. they were able to contain the water main break but for a while they were doing traffic
5:01 am
control in the area. there were reports it was flooding homes. we have a crew on scene and traffic is open in the area. water main break is fine. it was around francisco and hazel. you can see from the green on our freeways, traffic is fine. westbound 80 is fine. good to go on the toll plaza, good on the nimitz freeway through oakland. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. >> it's been so cold. >> yes. >> ugh. >> i was having a debate from someone yesterday, is it cold or cool? they said it's just -- i said calm down! it's definitely been a little chilly across san francisco. low clouds and fog, areas of drizzle this morning for the coast. cloudy start around the bay. and mostly cloudy with low clouds inland. what about later on today? well, a slight warmup.
5:02 am
upper 80s inland, mid-60s around the bay, lower 60s for the coast, cool at the coast but mild inland. similar conditions friday and saturday and then below average temperatures back in the forecast for much of next week. so if you think it's chilly, it is. >> it is. i know. all right. thanks, tracy. back to you guys. >> our delicate little flowers. >> short sleeves. [ laughter ] >> thank you very much. an arson team still at sfo right now trying to figure out what started a fire that destroyed at least a half dozen cars overnight. our anne makovec is at the long- term parking lot with more on what happened. good morning. >> reporter: check this out, sydnie. six cars significantly damage. what an unwelcome surprise as you return from vacation. their hoods up and their engine compartments completely burned- out. arson investigators trying to figure out exactly what happened here. they know a fire started in one
5:03 am
of these cars just after midnight. and that burned under the hood and really the entire interior of the car, the air bags were even deployed. and that fire then spread down the line. a parking attendant saw the fire and called firefighter. now arson investigators are surveying the scene because it appears suspicious. it really isn't common for cars to suddenly start on fire in the middle of a parking lot on a cool night. so airport officials are now going through dmv records trying to inform the affected vehicles' owners before they get to the lot for a very sad surprise. and back out here live now, in the long-term parking lot of sfo, i'm in section s as in sam 10. you can see we have a tow truck starting to take away the six affected vehicles most heavily damaged but several other vehicles around the area have
5:04 am
some cosmetic damage. one of the turn signals that was melted and some of them have just some of the paint melted. but it was only these six because the fire did appear to spread very quickly. as far as surveillance cameras in the area, there were none at this time at this particular section. there were some cameras in the covered parking lot area and in the entrance and exits. but at this point, they are still trying to figure out what happened here. sydnie. >> anne, i wonder if there is any way that they can contact those vehicle owners before they get out of the bus and look around for their car and not find it? >> reporter: exactly. that's what they are trying to do, as i mentioned. they are right now going through dmv records trying to contact the owners so don't have that horrible surprise. i mean, a, at this point, their car would probably be gone which would be disturbing enough but then to find out what happened... >> i don't know. >> reporter: yikes. >> it would be just as bad having to set on the plane for six or seven hours thinking about it. >> reporter: sure. at least you could make plain to have somebody pick you up at
5:05 am
that point. >> wow. okay, anne, thank you very much. anne makovec at sfo. the california state fair is out $100,000 stolen by two armed men. the heist happened at about 10:00 last night at cal expo. this is in sacramento. the two thugs stole the money from an office near the grandstand. that office was being used by ovation, a company that provides catering for cal expo. police say the robbers were wearing ovation uniforms. no one was injured during the heist. oakland police hope surveillance video can help them track down two people who could be connected to a downtown murder. >> two individuals were seen moments before the crime was committed. >> the video shows a block of webster street sunday night just moments before someone robbed and shot jinghong kang of virginia. the man and woman in the video match witness descriptions of the killers. kang was scheduled for a john
5:06 am
interview at google in mountain view the next day. bart's board of directors scheduled to decide today what to do with its budget surplus. bart has $4.5 million extra from the state. directors voted last month to use half of that money to give riders a temporary fare cut. and today they will decide whether to go ahead with that and will also consider using the money to clean stations and pad their fund. those ideas got the most support on public comments on how to use the extra money. the bart board also talks this morning about the proposed connectser between the coliseum station and oakland international airport. the project has a $484 million price tag. the federal government withdrew $70 million for the project back in february. that was because of questions about the connector's impact on minority and low income communities. bart's staff has found a way to replace the lost federal funds and that is what the board will
5:07 am

5:36 am

you the area. this was northbound highway 99 at mckinley avenue. those northbound lanes are closed. so what we're hearing this happened around 2:30 this morning so overnight it was a greyhound bus that crashed, it was driving up from los angeles and heading to sacramento when it rolled over. we are hearing as many as 35 people were on the bus. chp confirms that six people died in the crash, 20 people injured, many critically. we don't have sensors in the area but again, the northbound lanes of highway 99 are completely closed. southbound traffic remains open heading into fresno. so again, terrible situation there. we are hoping for some live pictures in a little while. we also have another breaking situation, in san francisco, fortunately sounds like things are better here. now just one lane blocked eastbound lombard at buchanan. city streets in san francisco. but if that lane remains blocked it could affect commuters off the golden gate bridge from marin county. for a while two lanes were blocked and they were telling us no estimated time when they
5:45 am
were going to get those lanes re-opened but for right now no delay. marina boulevard is a good alternate. we have a second camera today, they are standing at 8 80 and 92 where traffic is picking up towards the san mateo bridge exit. so far, so good. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. lots going on in the weather department. grumbling over here, what happened to summer? well, it is cooler than average. we'll take a look at your temperatures and see if we can warm you up, some of you. out the door, low clouds and fog areas of drizzle for the coastline. cloudy start around the bay mostly cloudy with low clouds inland. for this afternoon your highs in the mid-70s to the upper 80s. that will be inland. sun and low clouds around the bay up to the mid-70s and still cool along the coastline with drizzle possible throughout the day. here's a look at our high
