Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today:
Temperatures rising: Post-earthquake weather this week goes like this: cool on Monday, hot on Wednesday, moderate in between on Tuesday. The National Weather Service is predicting the temperatures will jump 9 degrees by mid-week, going from 84 today to 93 on Wednesday. The warmest day looks like Thursday when the temperature could reach 94 degrees.
Shaker aftermath: Schools in the Napa area are closed today, and residents and business owners are mopping up after a magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook the region early Sunday morning. More than 200 people were injured in the earthquake, which also damaged water and gas lines and caused power outages. Napa Valley police warned tourists to confirm reservations and check in with wineries before continuing with travel plans. People also have been warned to stay away from downtown Napa and areas where there is broken glass, brick and mortar on the ground.
Davis double homicide trial: Jury selection is expected to begin today in the murder trial of Daniel William Marsh, 17, who is accused of fatally stabbing an elderly Davis couple more than a year ago. Oliver Northup, 87, and Claudia Maupin, 76, were stabbed to death in the bedroom of their south Davis condominium in April of 2013. Marsh remains in Yolo County juvenile custody. He is ineligible for the death penalty because of his age, but faces a life sentence if convicted.
Old Clarion proposal: A proposal to build 132 senior apartment, 28 assisted-living units and retail at the site of the Clarion Hotel - closed in 2012 - will go before the Planning and Design Commission on Thursday for comment and review. The Alkali and Mansion Flats Historic Neighborhood Association supports the project because it would bring more market-rate housing to the neighborhood. City staff have suggested some changes, such as adding more retail or other active uses on a stretch of H Street now designated for assisted-living units.
