san jose in and it's packed throughout the south bay. bay bridge ride to san francisco looks normal. no unusual crashes or stalls and you are backed up into the maze but it's a decent ride and just under 15 minutes and that sun is beaming down over the traffic and hello, sunshine. >> i love that and it will heat things up as we get into the afternoon hours and another sunny shot here in the east bay and the camera on top of the berkeley hills showing great visibility and sunshine and temperatures on the chilly side. 40s and 50s and it heats up well into the afternoon and 70s and maybe upper 70s and some of our warmest spots and 80s as we get through the wreck -- rest of the week and i have more of those details coming up and now back to the news. breaking news we are following out of concord where

anything in the maze holding folks back? so far, it looks good. a minor wait at the toll plaza, 14 minutes. it is a little crowded at the upper deck but it's nice to see early clearing in san francisco. sometimes we don't get that until friday or a holiday. take a look at 101, the the south bay commute is tough. we had problems on 280, minor problems on 101 so it is a whopping 83 minutes to make it north from san jose. you definitely need to leave early if that's your commute. checking on 880, it's okay, slowing stretches for the south ride. 43 minutes from 238 to 237. things continue to get brighter and brighter outside. sunshine and the temperatures are starting to move now. we are looking at conditions at the san francisco international airport. it's nice and sunny.
we are seeing no delays for inbound flights at sfo, oakland, or san jose so far. looking ahead we will see temperatures warmer today than yesterday. the warming trend does continue into tomorrow. that's really going to shape up for the entire week. through friday, we will see dry conditions and warm temperatures, especially as we get into wednesday and thursday. then we are going to have a little bit of a cool down over the weekend, but not bad. temperatures are really moving. we are seeing 50s and 60s on the board. definitely different than we saw yesterday at this time. it's already 61 in downtown san francisco, 56 in downtown oak land. san jose is coming in at 55. high pressure will be sticking with us throughout the entire week and into the weekend bringing us the dry conditions and the spring to even summer- like weather that we will be seeing over the next days. the temperatures are not too bad. we have upper 70s for concord maybe today and liver more
coming in at 77. upper 60s along east bay shoreline, 69 hayward. we are pushing the 70-degree mark. low 70s for the south bay today and then mid to upper 70s it looks like for much of our north bay zone. tomorrow will be beautiful, very similar to today. then it looks like thursday might be the warmest day of the week pushing near 80 in some spots that we could be seeing around the bay area. i will let you know what friday and your weekend holds. all of that is coming up in just a bit. time for winners on losers on wall street. rob black is walking us through some of the big newsmakers. we want to talk about home prices as we look at 2018. it looks like we are off to a fast start with home prices, faster than economic growth. are they out pacing people's ability to afford homes? >> that's why i call it a loser for sure. it's been a great nine years on the stock market and housing
recovery but we start beating economic growth as we are and it's a flag. when it's a bad year, it will happen. across the nation it's a 6.2% rise. out of the cities surveyed, these are all big cities, most of them were up pretty significantly. home prices are rising twice as fast as economic growth. that's a problem. top three markets, seattle, does that not have amazon stink, everyone is moving to seattle. las vegas is a big winner, up 11.1%. san francisco up 10.2%. vegas is interesting. it's telling you it's noncalifornia let's get out but not too far away. you can commute from vegas and fly into san francisco every day and fly home and live way
better you could in the bay area, peninsula. >> twice the home for half the price. >> it's not going to be better any time soon. any time inventory is under six months, prices go higher. it's a sellers' market. >> doesn't look like any light at the end of the tunnel on that either. b of a apparently cutting facebook's stock forecast. is this all still more dominoes falling from the cambridge analytica. >> yeah. i am doing this story for the third time in the last three appearances and it feels repetitive. bank of america is saying not only do they have the data leak to 50 million people but they have a credibility leak because zuckerburg and sand berg didn't come out guns blazing, "we will fix this." they said we're sorry. it's crazy. you see significant risk of
civil penalties, data privacy violations. is facebook a media company with 2 billion eyeballs or 4 billion since it's 2 billion people. or is it a media company? they're regulated on alcohol ads, cigarette ads, on fake news. what are they? social media? they can get away with anything? i like the stock for the longterm patient investor but ftc investigation means 12 months before you get out of jail at facebook. >> it looks like zuckerberg is set to testify before congress. we'll see what happens. >> he did say no to english parliament. college students, applicants, this are parents -- their parents, getting nervous about how they're going to pay for college tuition. it seems to go up every year. >> i saw a report where they
talked about students stressed and the level of stresses rising. there are also other costs of college that are crazy expensive, just getting in. at private public schools tuition is 54 to 71% in the last ten years. that's bigger than the economy. the total college debt now stands about 1.4 trillion. 75% of students and parents starting college say they're stressed about financial obligations coming out with a minimum of $35,000 of credit card debt on average. some students pay $700 just to give applications every year. when they're seniors in high schools they apply and it's $700 in fees. stanford has the the most expensive application in the united states at over $100 per application. they make over $2 million saying no to people. not too shabby.
small colleges like vassar, maybe $400. housing deposits are 100 to 500. tuition 50 to 500. sat tutoring, $125 an hour, college admission counseling, 95 to $300 an hour. the cost around college loan makes my stomach stressed so i can see why the parents are stressed. >> interesting. we'll end on a viewer question. this is coming to us from rich. i didn't know you could do this. can i trust costco to buy a new car? >> i saw the coolest things cost cosells. you can get a custom painted pet portrait. your dog looks glamorous. you can get $1500 of rib eye. you can get a custom wine cellar, $5000. two gallons of massage oil, for
the guy who likes to oil up before the olympics. caskets are a good deal. the cars i like too because if they get you 10% off at a local dealer. you still work with the local dealer. costco just introduce you to the local dealer if you want a red pinto four wheel drive whatever. that's a classic for me. also if you don't want to buy a car from them and save 15%, consider a vacation. i use their vacation packages. you have to go somewhere like disney, hawaii, mexico, caribbean, but there are amazing discounts. they even send you a guide every couple months of great packages. they have a lot of good stuff. their gas is the secret weapon. there is a company now in the bay area that will come to your
welcome back. heineken is facing accusations of racism for this ad. it had the tag line sometimes lighter is better. >> right. on the surface it doesn't seem racist but as you watch the ad you will see it features a bar tender sliding the heineken to a light skinned woman and it passes by several black people before arriving at the woman's hand. so there is kind of that impression. >> that's the impression hip hop star chance the rapper got. he talked about it on twitter and called it racist. others started agreeing. heineken ended up pulling the ad last night. we are seeing a lot of
sunshine outside. this is san francisco. our camera is just south of market. you can see how nice it is. the temperatures will start warming up now as we get closer to the afternoon hours. i have 70s that i am tracking. >> gas prices are on the rise across the bay area. we'll tell you how much more they'll likely go up as the summer gets here.
9:28. we are checking out weather and traffic on a late tuesday morning. >> it's looking a lot better compared to the last hour. i will check the bridges. >> let's talk about this summer weather on tap for the week ahead. >> flip-flops, t-shirts and shorts is what you will be able to bust out now. a lot of water and of course sunscreen always helps. we are going to be seeing some areas pushing near 80 as we get through the rest of the week. this is what you are going to see right outside of your home.
we are going to be seeing a lot of sunshine and crystal clear skies. it's nice and blue out there. this is our north bay camera over looking tim ron. a perfect shot of the golden gate bridge towers up there on your screen. we are seeing 70s for the afternoon, could see upper 70s in warmest spots. it's going to be a little bit toasty around the bay area and that's going to get more and more so over the next days. i will have all the details in my seven-day forecast coming up in just a bit. the roads are looking not so bad. >> a very nice improvement. here is a live look, a minor delay in some of the cash lanes down the middle. a decent ride across the upper deck. your average drive times looks great. we don't see this very often, early clearing, unless it's a friday or a holiday.
leaving san francisco, 280 at ocean heading to daily city, an accident is still working. it looks like they have two lanes blocked, two left lanes. one of the cars involved may have overturned. south 280 at ocean, two left lanes blocked by a fresh crash. the 280 extension is jammed from the beginning to the end from the 80 split all the way to city street. it is slow with a lot of folks heading to work. it's still packed trying to get into san francisco. >> thanks. president trump is staying relatively silent on the stormy daniels scandal. >> trump is talking to his aides about the controversy behind closed doors. >> reporter: president trump, a self declared counter puncher, remaining uncharacteristically quiet about alleged affair with stormy daniels and purported effort to cover the story. >> you had sex? >> yes. >> you were 27 and he was 60.
were you physically attracted to him? >> no. >> behind the scenes, washington post reports that the president attacked daniels asking confidants if the episode is hurting his poll numbers and even griping daniels is not the type of woman he finds attractive. the post is also reporting that the president watched daniels' 60 minutes interview and didn't think she appeared credible and has been asking aides what they thought. >> i am not going to get into what he saw. there are clips in the morning news shows. >> reporter: sources say mr. trump knows the stakes and is resisting commenting and making this worse. >> the president has consistently denied the claims and the only person inconsistent is the person making the claims. the president doesn't believe that any of the claims are accurate. >> he doesn't believe she was threatened? >> he does not.
>> reporter: white house continuing to insist that the president was unaware of the $130,000 paid by michael cohen. >> false charges are settled out of court all the time and this is not out of the ordinary. >> daniels lawyer filing suit against cohen. >> he made statements whereby he basically said that the affair never happened, in not so many words, and made my client out to be a liar. >> the president has kept in touch with a different controversy, rob porter. he resigned amid allegations that he physically abused both of his ex wives. new york times reports that the president has told some of his advisors he hopes porter returns to work in the west wing though he acknowledges he probably can't bring him back. >> the friend of stormy daniels claims that daniels saved a
dress from her date with donald trump. gas prices are expected to climb. >> the summer blend. the bay area is already paying more than they pay in the state. here is more from walnut creek. >> these numbers will seem like a bargain in a week or so as gas prices are expected to continue to rise. i see three gas stations. behind me is $3.67, $3.69 and across the street $3.69. we are paying $.32 more this year than at the same time last year with a $.07 increase over the past weeks. it's headed in the wrong direction. in san francisco we are paying the highest price in the continental 48 states. so right now the average price in san francisco you are looking at $3.64. in oakland, $3.48. san jose, $3.48. the prices obviously will change. a lot of the cashiers are
running in and out with the new plastic cards to keep the numbers going up and up and up. when it will end, nobody knows. but we know that the cost for a barrel of oil continues to rise. according to industry experts that's the reason why we continue to pay more. not to mention living in california with all the famous california summer blend. 9:35. new, heavenly ski resort announces they're going to extend ski season. they already know they're going through april. >> how about that? it looks like people are already on the slopes enjoying the snow out there now. we are joined live via skype. coop has more on what's going on? >> reporter: hi. it's a beautiful day. spring time is what it feels like. the sun is up here heavenly to
extend the season to the 22nd of april. great skiing and riding conditions. it looks like there might be another storm system or two maybe into april. great conditions right now on the mountain. >> i am going wait, april 22. does that take us through spring break? >> it does. i was going to ask that. do you think the snow will hang around? >> reporter: you know, it depends on how warm it gets. today we are supposed to see 60. that 22-foot bay, there were a lot of layers that came in with the last storm. so there is some warm heavy pack and that takes a lot of sunshine. our mountain operations team will do the best that they can to keep this ready to go and keep it going. we have pond skimming, live music, it's going to be a good time. >> i am going to be a mom. two things mom says for spring skiing. you have to wear sunscreen.
number two, i hate seeing people that shed all the layers and the helmet. you have to keep the helmet on even though it's hot out there. >> reporter: helmets definitely are key. you will go into a freeze thaw cycle. the snow in the morning can be hard. never shed the helmet. >> thanks a lot. you can't beat those conditions. thanks, coop. i love fresh powder but when it's warm out, it's very enjoyable. >> to hear him talking about the music. there is a lot more up there than just skiing. still ahead on kron4 morning buzz, at least one piece of the missing puzzle for the warriors could be back tonight. >> adventures in traveling and why i may not fly cheap-o air
welcome back. it's time to check on traffic. it's easing up, not a bad ride across the san mateo bridge. it's crowded but the drive time is going down, only 21 minutes from 880 to 101. we have the bay bridge with early clearing, minor delays in the lanes down the middle. 14 minutes to make it to fremont street. 101 across the building gate was never a problem. it's looking smooth, 26 minutes
to the toll plaza. richmond bridge is still crowded but at least we don't have any major issues. we'll check on 580 in my next report. we quickly want to go live to sacramento where we have california's attorney general joining the police chief, mayor, and other officials concerning the investigation into the shooting death of stephon clark. >> extremely high emotions, anger, hurt in our city, i felt it was the best interest of our entire community including the members of our police department to ask the attorney general to be independent part of the investigation and he agreed to be that independent body. our city is at a critical point right now and i believe this
will build faith and confidence. there will be full access for the department of justice investigators during the entire investigation. they will also provide independent review of our policies and our training as it relates to use of force. i again would like to thank our attorney general for dedication to the sacramento community through willingness to be an independent part of the investigation. i would like to speak to recent events in our city. protests have a rich, positive place in our nation's history and definitely in our state and city's history. as the capital of california we often see rights of protesters exercised in our city. as a community, we exercise calm and don't have more tragedies, injuries, property damage as that does not help us move forward and improve the city for all. with this in mind i thank the
leaders in the community that are here with us supporting our city and being safe. fraternities, sororities, pastors here today. i thank all of them for being engaged in ensuring everyone in our city is safe and has the opportunity to thrive. the police department will continue to be transparent and continue with the information that we can with the investigation. we provided updates on some of the evidence in the case as we obtained it and we will continue to do so. we want to be a leader not only in our state, but our nation, in regards to what partnerships with our community look like and what transparency looks like because that's what's best for our sacramento community. i would like to thank men and
women of the police department who have been working many long hours over the last week. they have shown tremendous professionalism, patience, dedication to our city. they have truly provided a tremendous service to our city during this very trying time. with that, i would like to turn it back to the attorney general. >> i think and respect the chief and i thank and respect everyone in the community who made this possible to come together this way. they'll now provide independent oversight of the investigation into the shooting of stephon clark. my team and i at the california department of justice will do everything in our power to ensure that the investigation
is fair, thorough, and impartial. i want to thank and respect the chief for agreeing that the involvement in the matter will extend to include a review of the policing policies, procedures, and practices at the sacramento police department. although we will continue to coordinate with the sacramento police department, we will retain our independence as we conduct this review. our independent over sight and separate review of the department will be based on the facts and law, nothing more, nothing less. at this time it's hard to say more about either assignment because one involves ongoing investigation and the other has
yet to commence. we take this with the full recognition of the importance of getting it right because it is about respect and trust. it is about identifying ways to achieve public safety and safer outcomes in the future. the california department of justice is here to live up to its name. we work with law enforcement and communities across california every day. and we work to uphold justice every day. today we take another important step to strengthening respect and trust that we need to keep california safe. let me turn the microphone over to our mayor of sacramento now. >> good morning everyone. i want to begin by thanking my colleagues for being here, the
fraternity members, the pastors. i want to acknowledge all those in the community who have kept the peace on the community side and the men and women of sacramento's police department who helped keep the peace in real ways over the past week. i want to thank the chief for consistent outstanding steady leadership. thank you to our district attorney who you will hear from in a moment for not making this about turf when so much is at stake. a big thank you to our attorney general for stepping up big time and providing our community and all communities in california that extra assurance that the stephon clark investigation will be fair and impartial. you did not have to say yes. you did so.
that is leadership. i am appreciative of the fact that attorney general will help us review policies, protocols and training -- arise from the public's view of the stephon clark video. we appreciate this help. the city working with police chief and police department is on a parallel track to begin a look at the policies, protocols, training practices. as mayor of the proud city of sacramento, i recognize that we have difficult days ahead as we grieve and confront the death of stephon clark. for all that's in our control, these days, weeks, months can also become the moment when our city and country asked and answered the most important question. isn't there a better way?
that question resounds not only in the interactions between law enforcement in our communities but in every aspect of civic life, how we treat one another, and how we go about creating genuine opportunity for all people in sacramento. how we answer this question together around stephon clark's death will determine whether we divide and despair or whether we heal and hail justice and change. today's announcement makes me even more confident that we will in fact achieve the latter. like the chief, i call for peace and nonviolence everywhere, every day in our community. violence must not be get violence. the country is watching us. let us show how a city in pain together with all of our partners in fact achieved
better way. thank you. i you saw live comments from the mayor of sacramento. we also saw the state attorney general talking as well. it looks like police are going to ask the state attorney general to conduct a separate independent investigation into the police shooting death of the victim here. >> stephon clark. >> that's the very latest. >> we'll be back with more in just a few minutes. don't go away. ♪ seresto, seresto, seresto
