5:14 am
look at your bridges and of course the rest of your drive times coming up but first, let's check in with scott. good morning, everyone, happy friday. 1 july means we are halfway through the year. the stock market had its worst performance since 1970 ronald reagan in 1970 was the governor of california. i remember none of this. the dow is down 15% and the nasdaq which was since so many companies in the bay area down 30%. as for the dollar, the dollar is strengthening. that is both good and bad news. a strong dollar means it is easier to buy things from overseas. it also means the products we
5:15 am
do make in the usa are more expensive for foreigners to buy and bitcoin has been an embarrassment. not only is the value of bitcoin syncing, in many cases the businesses buying, selling, and storing bitcoin are not letting customers get their money out. >> mortgage rates are dropping from 5.8% to 5.7%. they started the year in the low threes. >> netflix went off-line. outage came as the company released the second half of the fourth season of stranger things almost exactly at midnight according to the website. i watched the first two seasons

the word abortion spikes in the days ahead with overturning of roe v. wade. us how the search really is. >> it is synonymous across the country. we can zoom in on certain cities and states, but i am unable to see specifically what you might be searching for. >> the number of searches for hot dogs is exploding. i like them on the grill but a microwaved hotdog is not bad. >> probably you are about eight or something. >> it has been about that long. [ laughter ] >> this morning, your favorite yellow cartoon.

5:19 am
weekend, and we are getting ready for some cooler weather that continues for the bay area as we see the cooler weather over the past couple of days. it is foggy, and it is going to start misting and drizzling once again. it is mostly clear, but we will see more sunshine heading into late morning into the afternoon as our temperatures very slowly warm-up fremont will see a higher 71 degrees pretty much all across the bay area as we now enter into our first date of july. you can leave the air conditioning off. in fact, livermore reaches 73 degrees. oakland, up to 66 degrees. during those jackets, because temperatures will be changing. if you are driving from
5:20 am
concorde over to half moon bay, there will be a big drop in temperatures, only 60 degrees there. a strong area of high pressure rebuilds, and that is basically what causes the hot weather that we had last week. we do have a lot of people traveling weather coming into the bay area or heading out. i want to show you trouble spots where you may see travel delays apart of the upper planes as well as travel moisture. as of right now, we are not seeing any travel delays. we will keep an eye on those flights for the morning but really a nice cool weekend ahead with highs in the mid 70s. we are headed back to the 90s. our inland areas will have a nice break from that heat. going into the fourth of july holiday. it seems like it is and light
5:21 am
commute. >> that is exactly right. so far, we've been doing pretty good. notice we do have a couple of cars out on the road but as far as accidents go i am noticing a couple of overnight crashes. you can see the commute starting to build with this stretch. i'm going to zoom in a little bit in the south bay because i did notice this crash pop up and it could start to crash and start some slowing. >> it sounds good. we will check back in with you. >> if you're flying this summer, there is a really good chance your flight is going to be delayed or canceled but there are some things you can do right now to prepare yourself. i will show you how next. >> we are also showing you that we are still in awe.

i hope you need none of this advice but there is a good chance that your flight is going to be delayed or canceled. the good news is you don't have to be a travel probe. >> there are tools you can use even as an entry-level traveler. >> first, sign up for notifications from your airline. get a leg up, start tracking your plane, not your flight, your actual plane yourself. free apps will let you track your plane before you get on it. keep tabs on that jet. it starts running behind schedule and it looks like your trip is going to go sideways, you can take action earlier. you will have an advantage to try to rebook. while you are in line, get on the phone and get on social media. don't be afraid to ask the same question in three or four different places. i have had a terrible run lately. almost all delayed or canceled

5:31 am
you plan to review those fireworks over the bay. life here in the nbc bay area studios. >> i am marcus washington. let's get you started. we have been tracking what we can expect. it is going to be a nice one for us. >> it is going to be a nice day. we are waking up to a cloudy sky, and it is basically going to be a repeat of yesterday. it is a very cloudy start to this morning but as we head towards 10 or 11:00 even at noon, we will see much more sunshine as our temperatures reach into the low 70s in dublin and 70s for nevada san francisco will be in the mid 60s. >> you know, we've been doing okay but now we have a bit of an issue popping up. looks like we have a little bit
5:32 am
of a fender bender that could be causing some delays along the northbound side of 101 right off the offramp. you can see a little bit of yellow on the screen there which shows slowdown. so far, i have not seen any complete lane closures but i will have an update coming up. >> well, the next time you fill up, he better brace for the new gas tax that takes effect state wide this morning just in time for the holiday weekend. across the bay area , they are getting ready to fill up right now , because so many people are hitting the road. >> reporter: that's right, i'm one of those people actually getting ready to hit the road, and i might take advantage of what we are seeing this morning, because we do see some good news. we were looking to see if it
5:33 am
was going to change today but that doesn't necessarily mean the increase will happen later on in the day. it is definitely not the type of fireworks people want to see this weekend. the state gas tax was approved five years ago, and it goes into effect today. state lawmakers can reach an agreement. instead, this year's budget allows for inflation relief payments. $1050 can be expected around october to the beginning of next year. yesterday it was $.51 a gallon and yesterday it grows. it funds a highway and road projects. supporters of this tax say it is needed to continue those projects, but people at the pump say otherwise. >> i commute each way, not each
5:34 am
way but two hours total every day, so i feel all of the increases. >> reporter: now, we also took a quick look and personally, i get a little relief from gas prices outside of the city. daly city is just over six dollars at $6.05. along san bruno avenue, $6.09. this was the clos at was closer to san fransisco. now, good news to take note of is gas prices on the state average have gone down seven since the past week. if you do have time, get to the gas stations now, prices still haven't changed. >> thank you so much and safe travels to you as well, this
5:35 am
weekend. >> and state law takes effect today meaning most schools will have to follow healthy school start times letting the kids sleep in a little bit. in high school, most teenagers sleep in even more. it moves to 8:30 am or later. it will impact some 3 million students statewide. >> san jose is issuing a new flavored tobacco band. supporters say flavors including vanilla, cinnamon, and menthol are targeted primarily to minors and young adults. the new law allows for violators to be fined up to $2500 per day. there are some things that you should be doing to protect
5:36 am
your money. i spoke with a retirement expert with security and financial we talked about moving us all forward. first, i asked him to talk to us about how closely we all should be watching our 401(k). >> it is not a bad thing to look at your balance and understand where you are at. something that is not as productive is when you take action on that that is more emotional. i certainly look at my balance but you have to understand that markets go up and they go down frequently. we have fair markets and if you're looking at your balance and it is causing you to take action that is not your best long-term interest, it is probably not a great idea to focus on it as much. >> people in their early 30s may not be too worried about that but if you are in your 60s nearing retirement, you probably should look closer.
5:37 am
>> what you put your finger on is something that is really important no matter where you are in your retirement journey. that is what is your time horizon? >> if you are in your 50s or 60s or closer to retirement, that is going to affect how you diversify your retirement and what your risk appetite is definitely a different position versus somebody in their 20s or 30s. they will have decades on their side and really the most powerful attribute any of us will ever get, and that is time. if you are investing in your 20s or 30s, it is put in, those will be the most impactful dollars you will ever invest because in some cases we will be getting a really egg. so, the important thing is to
5:38 am
understand your time horizon. when am i going to need this money? in understanding the diversification that you have got within your account. >> that is what i want to talk about. let's talk about people who are a little bit younger now. should they have that money in their 401(k)? should they be more conservative with those investments and let it sit or is it a little time to get risky? >> when you've got that time on your side, most experts i think would agree, you can afford to be in assets that are riskier. let's just say that. the important thing to take note of again is when you're going to use this money. they've got the ability to ride out these types of bear markets. >> 5:38 right now. developing now, residents are being allowed to return to
5:39 am
their homes as firefighters get a handle on the fire. it did destroy structure near grass valley. more than 900 acres burned, but it is about 20% contained. you know what, there is so much going on, i wanted to go through the events. temperatures will be in the mid 60s but really nice in the middle of the afternoon with sunshine. don't forget that sunscreen. you will be able to enjoy the temperatures that are getting into the low 60s with sunshine. notice those icons, that means it is going to be windy. the breezes will be kicking up at times. and then on monday, we have the parade happening in san jose.
5:40 am
we are going to start out along the parade route with temperatures in the low 60s. it is also going to be very comfortable on the fourth of july. that is actually a live camera. it is just beautiful. temperatures will get a little bit cooler by the weekend, especially on sunday. i'm also checking for any travel delays. as of right now, there are none. of course the earlier you travel, the better. >> i do want to show you they tend to come on right around this time. now, let's get right to the crash i was talking about earlier in the capital expressway off ramp.
5:41 am
they are going to be running a traffic break you see them weave into traffic to slow it down. we are going to see a couple of delays at capital. thank you so much. >> coming up growing questions about how the don't say law will be in the reason insiders say education will suffer. >> and with the fourth of july nearing, we are asking what you call the party when you are grilling? is it a barbecue, a cookout, or maybe something different? we have the google results. when we come back, we are going to tell you what people are
5:42 am
saying. >> on our latest episode, we are talking about california's over middle and high school students. they are now going to be up they are now going to be up sleep in a every search you make, every click you take, every move you make, every step you take, i'll be watching you. the internet doesn't have to be duckduckgo is a free

is confusion over how the new law should be interpreted. you can watch it later today on the today show. 5:46 right now, president biden have returned from the g7 and nato summit. >> good morning to you. it goes against the principle candidate biden set out on the campaign trail. the crown prince ordered the brutal murder of an american who was cut apart with the bone saw at the saudi consulate in turkey. biden said the saudi government had little redeeming value. president biden was asked to
5:48 am
explain during a press conference at the site nato summit where he says he wasn't going to saudi arabia to meet with the prince, he was going to saudi arabia and the prince would be there. >> it is in saudi arabia it is not about saudi arabia and so there is no commitment being made and i'm not even sure. i guess i will see the king and the crown prince, but that is not the meeting i am going to. there will be a part of a much larger meeting. >> the supreme court and its term yesterday. get ready for the next term. the court has accepted a case examining whether the state court can rule on election laws created by state legislature. that is huge because the state legislature ruled by one party can create new rules we were favor in the state presidential election and then the state court would not be able to stop
