current temperatures, mid-60s near concord, and as we extend into this afternoon, yes, we get back up into the 90s once more and inland areas, we broke records yesterday, kentfield got up to 97, livermore 102. the last time we saw these warm temperatures was 1982. as we look at our weather headlines for this afternoon, we are still under a red flag warning and heat advisory for solano county. that will expire today and then we're left with a lot cooler of a setup as we wrap up this week and to add to that, oh my goodness gracious, the winds are starting to shift. we're starting off calm no matter where you live but that onshore flow is starting to change in direction and that changes our weather for a multitude of reasons. the onshore flow just this evening alone around 24 miles per hour at times near san francisco, gusty conditions actually also up near fairfield and concord where with that onshore flow we're seeing relative humid increase for the overnight recovery process but the clouds are starting to roll back in. this is what we're dealing with this morning, high clouds
pushing its way in but the coastal fog will start to trickle its way into as we extend into evening hours just in time for the rest of this week. so with that in mind, daytime highs ranging above average. the santa clara valley alone low 90s/upper 80s. as we extend into the east it's similar to yesterday, just a smidge cooler, just a hair cooler especially up in our hills from fairfield down into pittsburg, where we're just dealing with upper 90s at this point. san francisco starting to cool down a lot today, too, getting down to 73 degrees. 90s still up in petaluma. more north it's the case we're above average. let's take a quick look at what we can expect for the next seven days. we do cool down as we head into the weekend. no rain in sight but clouds will roll in for thursday and friday, tricking us into thinking we could see something changing into the weekend but that's not necessarily the case. it's a three-day weekend around the corner, cooling down into the 60s for san francisco, we're actually getting down into the 70s for our inland areas, too, so we are going to keep you updated for your long weekend forecast but for now, gianna,
how are things going out there? >> we're looking forward to the weekend and we are busy this morning. this backup already at the bay bridge toll plaza. metering lights were turned on just about 5:45 this morning, and we did have reports of a broken down vehicle on the upper deck being cleared but it's slow and go out of emeryville, oakland, over into san francisco, so pack your patience, travel times a little closer to 15, 17 minutes from the maze to the city. 880 a live look taking 880 northbound into the maze if you're headed into oakland through there, it is a little sluggish as you approach the area. there is a trouble spot south of here as well, south of the coliseum, we're seeing some brake lights on 880 near paseo grande. a crash tennyson south 880, causing a backup. slow and go out of san lorenzo. plan for that once you're on the san mateo bridge if that's where
your commute takes you over onto the peninsula side 101 seeing that extra volume but not bad. we're not seeing a ton of brake lights just yet. this will get busier more into that 7:00 hour. still seeing some brake lights westbound 580 connecting onto 680, especially in the right lanes, backed up through there and still slow as you head into the altamont pass this morning. we have a few slow spots there. not bad through the south bay, here is one of our maps looking at conditions out of san jose and 101 to 280, 87 looking good. we'll let you know if anything changes. the commute out of the south bay not a bad one. if you're headed out of town for memorial day you're not alone. according to aaa, more than 39 million americans are traveling for the unofficial start of summer, that's up about 8% from last year. and for the airline industry, travel will be up by around 25% from last year. still ahead, house speaker nancy pelosi firing back after she's denied communion for her

. welcome back. the forecast into the afternoon another daytime high set up a little above average, we're deal with mid-90s in our inland areas. partly cloudy skies returning to the forecast for the coast as well as the bay as we extend into this afternoon hour by hour, look at your local area, we warm up a lot near santa rosa, just by noon hit the 90s as well as concord area.
we warm upe as w into the 2:00 hour and havee whyoming up in your full forecast in a bit. for now, right back over to you. >> time for our new segment of the morning, "morning mix." >> yes. time to check out the breakfast buzz online right now. gianna franco has you covered with all of this this morning. good morning again. >> what are people talking about? >> a lot of stuff and a couple stories that got our attention. first off, house speaker nancy pelosi is pushing back on a recent decision by san francisco's catholic archbishop to deny her communion over her support for abortion rights. msnbc's "morning joe" she respects imposing views but not when they impose on others. >> we have to be respectful. i come from a largely pro-life italian american catholic family. i respect people's views about that but i don't respect us
forcing it onto others. >> lots to think about there. definitely a very -- >> it's complicated. >> divided for sure. sf >> it's a complicated one, the archbishop saying this specifically to her and the pope said he's never denied the eucharist to anyone. it's a tough one to weigh and it's just a complicated one and definitely a talker. >> i think people have a lot of opinions about that, not just about what's happening with what the archbishop said but with abortion rights and so forth. we'll see how that plays out. this is interesting, a new bill coming down the pipe in the california state legislature. it could be a huge swing in precedent for parents' ability to sue companies for what some doctor addictive online content. the social media platform duty to children act passed the state assembly on monday and now goes to the state senate. it would allow parents to sue platforms like instagram and tiktok for up to $25,000 per
violation. the bill defines addiction as kids under 18 who are both harmed either physically, mentally, emotionally, developmentally or materially and want to stop or reduce how much time they spend on social media. they can't, because they are preoccupied or obsessed with it. as a parent, this is something i think about often, we do our best to kind of regulate how much time our kids spend online. during the pandemic it was difficult obviously, school was online, a lot of their activities because just interactions with kids, so interesting that this is now something people are concerned about. >> and even -- go ahead. >> thank you. the bill is interesting because it's just, it opens up the door to so many lawsuits as well. there are so many things listed on there, i mean, a lot of us, you just start scrolling. >> even as a grown man, i find myself scrolling for hours and hours and hours, so that's a good thing to bring up, just how
addictive can this be for children at such a young age. >> how difficult it will be to decide what lawsuits really would make sense and which ones are just being thrown out there. so yeah, lots to talk about today, lots to think about. >> gianna, thank you so much. in our next half hour, authorities just releasing the identities of some of the youngest victims in the deadly school shooting in texas, the new details just in. and we are monitoring social media as many are tweeting
two out of state corporations making big promises to californians. what's the real math behind their ballot measure for online sports betting? 90% of profits go to the out of state corporations permanently. only eight and a half cents is left for the homeless. and in virginia, arizona, and other states, fanduel and draftkings use loopholes to pay far less than was promised. sound familiar? it should. it's another bad scheme for california. another crazy day? of course—you're a cio in 2022. but you're ready. because you've got the next generation in global secure networking from comcast business. with fully integrated security solutions all in one place. so you're covered. on-premise and in the cloud. you can run things the way you want —your team, ours or a mix of both. with the nation's largest ip network. from the most innovative company. bring on today with comcast business. powering possibilities.™

school senior from uvalde is also dead. here in the bay area, law enforcement agencies are stepping up school security out of an abundance of caution. school districts are not aware of any known threats, police are set to patrol around bay area schools through the end of the school year. and warriors coach steve kerr refused to talk about basketball ahead of last night's big game, where the dubs lost to the moves. he instead took a moment to express his frustration with these mass shootings. gun violence is personal to kerr, who remains an outspoken advocate for social issues. thanks for joining us this wednesday, may 25th bye i'm amanda starrantino. >> and i'm len kiese. a live look at the white house this morning where flags are flying at half staff to remember the 21 people killed at a texas elementary school. >> it is the deadliest violence at a u.s. school since 2012 when a gunman killed 26 people at sandy hook elementary in newtown, connecticut. >> my heart is broken for the parents here in uvalde.
it's, never thought something like this would happen in a small town, and friendly as uvalde. >> cbs reporter danya bacchus is in uvalde with the latest. so many people just don't even have the words to describe what they're feeling right now. >> you're right. i think that's exactly what it is. there are no words to truly describe the emotion running through this community, the emotions all of us feel when it comes to processing what happened here at robb elementary school behind me. investigators have been on the scene throughout the evening and throughout this morning, and we're hoping to learn more about what happened here, a time line and more about the victims. this is a very small, tight-knit community and it's hard to find someone here who has not been impacted by this tragedy. heartbreak for another american town, this time it's uvalde, texas, where a gunman killed at
least 19 children and two adults. hearses arrived at robb elementary school tuesday evening to take the bodies away. >> i'm looking for my daughter. >> reporter: jesse rodriguez waited hours to find out if his 10-year-old daughter was one of the victims. some parents gave dna samples to help investigators identify the bodies. law enforcement sources tell cbs news the 18-year-old shooter drove up to the school with a handgun, an ar-15 assault weapon, and high-capacity magazines. >> as soon as he made entry to the school, he started shooting children, teachers, whoever was in his way he was shooting everybody. >> reporter: the gunman was shot and killed by a responding officer. >> at this point in the investigation is leading to tell us the suspect did act alone during this heinous crime. >> reporter: the school shooting comes two days before the kids were set to start their summer break. >> innocent second, third and fourth graders. >> reporter: mourning those who
lost their life, president biden called on lawmakers to take action to prevent future shootings. >> when in god's name we do what we all know in our gut needs to be done? >> reporter: the attack comes just ten days after a racially-motivated mass shooting at a buffalo supermarket and nearly a decade after the shooting at sandy hook elementary in newtown, connecticut. of course the heartbreak here is going to continue to grow as we learn more about the victims. i'm sure you guys have seen on social media and through our reports that we are learning more about the victims. we're seeing more pictures of the young 10-year-olds who lost their lives, and the teachers who were trying to protect their students and that's definitely going to impact i think everyone who has been following this story closely. >> and danya, we're seeing pictures, they're just babies and your heart, there's so much grief this morning. you're there at the school. are people still showing up there this morning to pay their
respects or are families keeping clear? what's it looking like? >> reporter: you know, families where we are, families are keeping clear from this area, but there is the civic center where a lot of families were going to get information about what happened, that's where families were being sent right after the shooting here, so i'm sure once we leave here, and if we're able to get over to the civic center, it will be a completely different scene and i'll have to be honest, i don't know if it's one that i would be able to process this morning. >> there is a lot to process, and i think it's going to be difficult for a lot of people. danya, thank you for your reporting and keeping strong as you can out there. all this just in, a san antonio area hospital has released an update on the condition of some survivors of that shooting. the hospital said they have four patients, a 66-year-old woman in serious condition, a 10-year-old girl also in serious condition,

now. thanks for joining us this morning. hey, steve, nice to see you. >> reporter: good to see you, too. >> for those who haven't heard about this before, what is "taps" across america and what are you asking people to do here? >> reporter: "taps" across america is a way to commemorate memorial day. we're asking musicians, preferably buglers and trumpet players but we don't care what instrument you play, asking you to go out on your porch, front step, backyard and play "taps" 3:00 local time, the national moment of remembrance and help us to together as a whole nation commemorate the holiday. >> you're in your third year and tens of thousands of people participated by sounding the call across the country. what is your ultimate goal for

you so much. 6:50 the time now. many people waking up about to head out the door. you going to help them out with traffic in a second. >> i am. there is some stuff going on. >> it's warm out there. i walked out of my house this morning and hoping after yesterday, i was out gardening and we live out in contra costa county, oh, i needed to go visit gianna in pacifica. it was rough. >> i know. >> gianna was spoiled yesterday, 70s, summer-like day. we have to bring some light to this, we're under a weather advisory in solano county today. on the bright side, it expires this afternoon. let's dive straight into that, looking at current temperatures in our inland areas the heat advisory is expiring tonight at 11:00 p.m. i wouldn't be shocked if it expires earlier due to how afternoon setups work. as we look at our bay temperatures it's a little cooler than yesterday, 73 for
our setup and 60s along the coast. if you're cure ys why we dealt with a strong heatup yesterday we broke certain temperatures. livermore broke a record getting up into the triple digits, just a 40-year record right there but as we look at what's to come headed into this weekend a trough of low pressure is diving down just enough to cool us off and change the d winds, too. that's actually very big for us because it's also bringing in some clouds as we extend into our afternoon forecast, gusty conditions just around 2:30 in the san francisco area. it stays strong as we head into the evening hours, even up into our higher elevations, closer to concord and fairfield. so fog futurecast showing us this right now, high clouds as we extend into the afternoon hours, as well as that coastal fog starting to bleed its way into the bay as we head into the evening, and with that in mind it's going to stick around for the next couple days. so here's our higher temperatures as we extend into this afternoon, low 90s, upper 80s in the santa clara valley, as we extend off to the east it's more upper 90s but no more
triple digits for now. we cool off a lot into the weekend, just in time for carnevale, as well as memorial day weekend. so let's take a look at that. partly cloudy skies returning to the forecast for us for thursday and friday. sunny skies as we head into next week, in time for memorial day but it's beautiful nonetheless, and we'll keep you updated in the weather center. gianna, how are things going out there, a little more hectic? >> it is more hectic as we get closer to the 7:00 hour. a live look at the golden gate bridge and right now traffic is moving pretty smoothly here, no major brake lights or issues. it's actually on a couple other bridges where we're seeing a few hot spots this morning. like the san mateo bridge, we've got a backup there, if you're working westbound over towards the foster city side, there is a stalled vehicle just past the toll plaza, so that's adding to an already busy ride for commuters, heading over towards 101 across the bay. keep that in mind, busier than usual there if you are headed between 80 and 101.
speaking of 880, a live look at the nimitz northbound starting to get a little bit busy through oakland as you get closer to the bay bridge, southbound you're going to see brake lights as well as you work your way san lar lorenzo and hayward and reports of a trouble spot westbound 580 at 80, as you head into the maze towards the bay bridge. there is a hot spot on 80 near berkeley, slowing things down a bit and busy east shore freeway westbound headed to the toll plaza and bumper-to-bumper traffic from emeryville over into san francisco. so definitely think about leaving a few minutes early. up next the day after the deadly school shooting in texas, bay area school districts are beefing up patrols at home. we're live with the measures taken this morning. and join us after this newscast on our streaming service "cbs news bay area." we're live at 7:00 a.m. with the la

abundance of caution. in san francisco, i'm jocelyn moran, kpix 5. >> if you are getting up early ready to head out the door we have a couple hot spots this morning, westbound 580 as you approach the maze, there are reports of a crash blocking at least one lane. traffic backed up anyway, a live look at the bay bridge it's bumper to bumper already for that ride into san francisco. broken down vehicle causing a bit of an issue over towards the san mateo bridge, it's just past the toll plaza for that ride over onto the peninsula side. you'll see some brake lights there and it is getting busy as you head towards 101 and we do have some sluggish conditions northbound 880 near the coliseum, south of there that's where we see the brake lights out of san lorenzo into hayward. jessica? let's get a final look at daytime highs today. yesterday was warm, today is going to be another warm even hot day for us, but at least not as bad as yesterday, where yes, we did break temperature records just in the livermore area actually as well as fairfield. as we extend into the next couple days, we are cooling down
a lot, we're cooling off into the 60s as early as tomorrow for san francisco, 80s for san jose. 60s also for oakland, so over a ten-degree jump right there and only getting more mild as we head into that beautiful holiday weekend. so if you're planning to head out for carnevale for memorial day weekend alone we'll keep you updated in the weather center with nice temperatures. a million-dollar mystery in sacramento. >> the clock is ticking for one lucky lotto player to claim a massive prize, talking a ticket worth more than $1.6 million. it was sold at this liquor store back in november, but if the prize isn't claimed by the end of tomorrow, it will expire and that money will be given to public schools instead. >> i guess it's a win/win. >> yes. goes to the schools. >> unless you're holding the ticket. >> very true. >> it was me guys, just kidding. >> you were in sacramento recently. you need to check? check and see. don't forget the news continues all day on "cbs news bay area."
