4:39 am
frankly. >> the numbers may be surprising to some. san francisco saw a drop in homelessness of 3.5% from 2019. >> i think it has a lot to do with the resources, the public/private partnership, all of the various things that we're doing in san francisco, but it's not easy. ittifork e going to keep it reporter: tit ofakla4% increas. contra costa county saw the highest increase in the bay area of 35% but experts say these numbers don't necessarily paint a complete picture. counties that take steps to address the crisis by adding shelter beds, for example, could see increases in numbers simply because individuals experiencing homelessness might be easier to count. >> we also saw that poverty is moving east. you know, the bay area is less and less affordable. when i was working at hamilton families, we were looking to sacramento in order to find affordable housing for families. >> reporter: advocates say
4:40 am

4:41 am
one is now a quadriplegic. so far, no bun has been charged and not everyone agrees with the recall effort. >> if they do want to recall her, and it happens, it's only going to bring up anger in the community, because she's done the work. she's been there. she's helped. she will continue to be there. >> the recall group needs more than 6,200 signatures to trigger a recall election in november. armendarez's term ends in 2024. coming up, more bay area school districts reporting significant covid outbreaks. experts explain why current safety measures likely won't stop the spread. >> here is a live look outside before we head to break, a shot from our roof looking at the moon.

4:48 am
still sitting in the 40s near santa rosa, 50s near concord. as we look at daytime highs today they're warming up into the mid 80s near the inland areas and we expect more upper 50s and fid 60s in the bay. with that in mind, the patchy fog will bleed off as we head into the afternoon hours, just around 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. it clears up in the valley areas and by the afternoon we're dealing with some sunny conditions. great opportunity to head outdoors. the winds aren't nearly as strong as yesterday by any means. as we extend into this week that gradual warming trend will continue to happen thanks to this huge ridge from the south bringing warm and dry air for us. as we extend into thursday, notice a little bit of a trough dipping down, cooling our temperatures down a smidge but we stay above average even as we head into the weekend. daytime highs today we're warming up more than yesterday. mid to low 70s in the forecast, anywhere from hayward down into redwood city, santa clara and a

4:50 am
commuter, brake lights westbound 580 toward the dublin interchange and busy out of tracy on 205, getting onto 580. the backup starting to mount to about north flynn on 580. no wind advisory for the altamont, not the case for the san mateo bridge. we're not seeing any brake lights or issues but that wind advisory is in effect for the san mateo bridge, again that was issued by caltrans overnight, so a little gusty as you work your way through there, keep that in mind if you're traveling in a larger more high-profile vehicle if you're taking 880 this morning, things are quiet, no issues th r dyward, or south 880 down into hayward to the san mateo bridge looking good with no major issues. wind advisory for the bay bridge so heads up there, if you're working across the span, light conditions, no major delays headed into the city and so far so good on the golden gate bridge. no wind advisory for the golden gate bridge but you'll have one for the benicia bridge and antioch. travel times looking good, everything is in the green with no major issues and i want to show you a map of the south bay,

face says it all. a's lost three in a row, their record on the season falls to 15-23. the warriors already punched their ticket to the western conference finals on friday. as for their opponent, we found that out sunday night and it was a bit of a surprise. we seem destined all season for a collision course with the top-seeded suns, but the mavericks had other ideas. luka doncic poured in 35 points a game seven beat-down in the desert, 123-90 in favor of mark cuban's team. game on, is this wednesday night in chase center, biggest question for the dubs, how are they going to slow down luka? >> he's a really unique player, and clearly one of the very best players in the league. the ability to shoot the step-back three, and also get to the rim, and pass the ball so well makes him a really
4:56 am
difficult cover. dallas is talented and they have a lot of guys but he's obviously, he's their guy. >> with the suns eliminated, the warriors are now the favorite to win the title. they were 6-1 in november. still plus odds 3:2 or plus 150 as some know it. the celtics are behind them at 2:1, followed by the heat at 17:4, and the mavericks round it out at 6:1. look, if someone's giving me the warriors or the field, i'm slapping a saddle on the dubs and riding them to the county fair. this corps has always made the finals. why fade that fact? that's it for me and sports. have a great morning. it is 4:56. coming up, the advice from a health expert this morning on how to change the course of the bay area's current covid surge. >> here is a live look from our exclusive mark
