6:00 am
san francisco in the 50s, expect a high there of 66 degrees while the north bay tops out. 66 degrees in the east bay. also 70 degrees in the tri-valley. very comfortable, a lot of sunshine and breezy winds. not much of a change until weekend. i'll detail that coming up in a few minutes. let's see what's happening in the bay bridge with mike. >> we have a disabled vehicle, it's out of the tunnel. we see the incline moving slowly for the last few minutes recovering for the speeds getting into towards san francisco. we still have the backup at the bay bridge toll plaza. we're showing you the speed sensors on the approach, slowing on the maze. the rest of the bay looking really good. the upper eastshore freeway and highway 4 for the concord area. that's on this map. let me move out and show you the rest of the bachlt a nice easy flow especially for fremont. southbound 880, a dog that was running around.
6:01 am
they tried to help it. it's hiding under the truck. folks are slowing down to see what's going on. there's a truck on the shoulder. all lanes are cleared but the slow drive from dumbarton bridge toward milpitas. thank you very much. an update to breaking news. a soviet era plane crashed in south sudan killing at least 25 people. that plane went down shortly after takeoff about a mile from the juba airport. it crashed on the banks of the nile river leaving wreckage strewn across the water's edge. the plane had at least 20 people on board, including up to 15 passengers. it was a cargo plane. an unknown number of people were also killed on the ground. a man who saw the plane come down said it seemed as though initially the plane might crash into a populated market area before the pilot diverted the aircraft. russian tv reporting the plane, made in 1971, appears to have
6:02 am
been overloaded. investigators are looking into the cause. now to decision 2016. the ballots are in, the votes tallied. this morning several high profile bay area races are decided. >> we have team coverage of all things election. steph chuang is live in our san francisco newsroom with a decision over short-term rentals. we start with nbc bay area's kris sanchez. one of the bay area's most controversial politicians is out of office. >> you might be talking about this one even if you don't live in san francisco today. it was a tumultuous four years for the san francisco sheriff's department. voters overwhelmingly said enough to ross mirkarimi. take a look at the numbers. a former interim sheriff got nearly double digit votes. vicki hennessy got 61% of the vote over ross mirkarimi's 32%. hennessy is a san francisco native who joined the sheriff's department back in 1975, and in 1983 was the youngest captain in california law enforcement. she says she is a career
6:03 am
practitioner, not a career politician. in 2012 mayor ed lee tapped her to be the interim sheriff with the department when ross mirkarimi was suspended for official misconduct. >> i never thought in my entire career that i would ever run for sheriff. but i found i felt compelled to do so. as a san francisco native, somebody who worked hard to make this department professional, wants to keep the department professional and responsive and as somebody who is pretty much -- i'm a pretty steady person. i'm not somebody that has a lot of drama. >> sheriff ross mirkarimi was elected back in 2011 and then soon convicted of domestic violence against his wife, and that is a conviction that stripped him of the ability to carry a gun. he was also widely criticized for his support of the sanctuary policies blamed in the shooting death of a woman on pier 14 this summer. you might recall here, the
6:04 am
accused killer had several deportations on his record. the incoming sheriff, hennessy, says there is room to interpret that sanctuary policy to allow some notification, though perhaps not detention. that's one of the issues she will take on when she is sworn in in january. she says she has a lot of professional development and education opportunities for the department which she says she wants to return to its professional status. >> kris, thank you very much. not as much fanfare in this race. the bay area's highest profile mayor -- i should say the high profile mayor won in a landslide race. ed lee has been guiding the city through a tech boom and a housing crisis. this was essentially a formality. he was elected to a second term getting 57% of the vote. he originally took over for gavin newsom in 2011. aaron peskin won the board of
6:05 am
supervisor supervisors election. a high profile housing fight took center stage. proposition f limits the number of days a private housing unit can be represented out. stephanie chuang live in our san francisco newsroom. this proposition really gapd national attention. >> it really did. airbnb is more popular, makes more money in places like new york city. san francisco is home to the company, so it would be a symbolic sort of blow. moreover, it could set sort of precedent should this arise in other cities. the final ballot count on prop f, 55% no to the 45% yes of the more than 133,000 votes. that 55% no vote is what an airbnb funded poll conducted last week had predicted. supporters of f say short-term rentals are taking away housing in a city where there's already a shortage of options.
6:06 am
opponents say they were to spy on one another and took away the opportunity for people to pay their mortgages. it would have limited short-term representless in san francisco to 75 days a year instead of the existing 90-day cap if hosts aren't home, unlimited number of days if hosts are home. it would have completely banned rentals of inlaw units and meant a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail. the yes on f campaign including hotels, hotel workers union and housing activists spent about a few hundred thousand dollars. meantime, airbnb raised more than $8 million to fight this. it was successful. airbnb took center stage on this issue, set to hear from executives later this morning at the headquarters of the city. live in our san francisco newsroom, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay."
6:07 am
meantime another housing proposition, proposition i, did not pass. this was another closely watched housing prop. a yes vote would have stopped development, at least for 18 months, on luxury housing and what they call market rate housing in the mission. that's not going to happen after all which is concerning for people who think the mission is becoming too jent fied. prop a did pass with 73% of the vote. it needed two-thirds to get approval. prop a is a $810 million bond for affordable housing. also passing is proposition d allowing mixed use right near at&t park. peninsula voters shot down a plan to require open space. measure v lost in san carlos. it would have allowed the city to purchase 25 acres on black mountain to convert it into a park. only 38% approved. san mateo's measure f would extend the city's quarter cent

6:09 am
away from a crash that hit a fifth grader. it happened yesterday morning in the crosswalk on carter avenue near san jose's lietz elementary school. right away the principal sent out an e-mail describing the vehicle. the community is relieved but concerned about cars speeding up and down the street. >> we're talking about getting a petition or doing something about this street, especially at nighttime. i hear people all the time going through this road like it's a freeway. >> you've got to slow down out there. the boy is now recovering with a broken ankle. kari hall is here to get us started on a positive note this morning. we see the glow of the sunrise behind you from tiburon. it's going to be a cool day. >> cool to start, warming up into the afternoon, turning very

6:11 am
there was a motorcycle out of the fast lane. the traffic break caused temporary slowing. we see the build because of the volume for the tri-valley, nothing unexpected for the dublin interchange. here it's slow through hayward. until we get the bog down in union city, we talked about that on the shoulder. traffic slowing across the san mateo bridge into the peninsula which is clear right now. here at the bay bridge, the metering lights are on. there was a disabled vehicle which has cleared from treasure island. in the north bay, no drama. a live look shows in san rafael, a build in the traffic flow. so far, no major crashes there. a lot of these people heading to work. coming up, planning for retirement. the new program aimed at helping you save for your future. have you seen those youtube videos of people driving their teslas like this. tesla says knock it off. we'll tell you what they're going to do to stop it coming up in business and tech.
6:12 am
our cosmetics line was a hit. the orders were rushing in. i could feel our deadlines racing towards us. we didn't need a loan. we needed short-term funding fast. building 18 homes in 4 ½ months? that was a leap. but i knew i could rely on american express to help me buy those building materials. amex helped me buy the inventory i needed.
6:13 am
our amex helped us fill the orders. just like that. another step on the journey. will you be ready when growth presents itself? realize your buying power at open.com

6:16 am
that can be a little dangerous. >> you ever get the impression we're too smart for our own good. your e-mail is smart, your phone is smart. people's cars are now smart. >> they can drive themselves. scott mcgrew, tesla is watching some of those drivers on youtube and say knock it off. >> you've seen it. the software more or less allows the car to drive itself. this video all the rage when the software was pushed out. tesla says it is going to update the software in its cars to discourage this. exactly how, we don't know. but presumably something to help you keep at least one finger on the steering wheel. elon musk talked to reporters and analysts on tuesday afternoon says tesla isn't backing away from autonomous cars. he says in the very near future owning a non-autonomous car would be like owning a horse. you don't really keep it down
6:17 am
for transportation reasons, but more for sentimental reasons. it would appear not a day goes by without an update to the voeks wlkswagen scandal. not what any company wants. yesterday we heard porsches and audis may be affected. vw owns that brand. volkswagen issued a statement to the bbc where the company said the problem with the cheating software would be in diesel engines. up until now we thought it was only with diesel engines. what is this word? this is huge. this adds nearly a million cars to the scandal. speaking of announcing terrible news, china issued a new report about its coal burning power plants. stuck in the middle of it was a number showing china is burning 17% more coal than it said previously, about a billion tons of co2 a year. this blows off a lot of the math

6:19 am
a clean zone program. community members will spend saturday picking up trash and painting over graffiti. the first cleanup is on this saturday. >> it's great to see that transformation continue in east palo alto. if you are park-bound today, accessorize, scarves, gloves, hats, whatever it takes. >> that time of year finally. it finally feels like it should as we take a live look at san francisco from san bruno mountain. you see the skies are all clear. get ready for a beautiful sunrise. we've got this for a little while longer before it gets dark later and later each morning. we are looking now at the wind forecast. it starts out breezy. you can feel the breeze as you step out the door. look at what happens as we go through the day. at 2:00, we still have the sustained winds at about 20 miles an hour. later this evening it starts to relax a bit and our temperatures will be still very cool.
6:20 am
it feels chilly throughout the day with the winds at about 20 miles an hour in san francisco. going hour by hour at 9:00, it's 59 degrees. a slow rise into the low to mid 60s in the city. mostly clear skies as we drop back into the mid 50s. we'll have more of this weather over the next couple days. no major changes until the weekend when we start to see the cold front moving in. as it approaches, our winds pick up on saturday, more clouds by sunday. we could be tracking showers, especially for the north bay. the rain spreads all across the bay area late sunday night into monday, and we may have another good soaking to start out the week. pretty much like what we had to start this week. so the estimated rain at this point, of course, this could change, right now bringing us about a quarter inch all across the bay area. and a look at the temperature trend in livermore. it will be 70 degrees today. 71 degrees tomorrow and just rising a degree or two each day. the warmest day on saturday. more clouds moving in.
6:21 am
that will bring our temperatures back down a couple more degrees. feeling nice across the bay area. the east bay 71 degrees on friday, saturday 69 degrees. you make plans to get outdoors, but watch it on sunday. we'll start in san jose. we're looking at nothing dramatic. we should see this commute start to kick in over the next 10 to 15 minutes. right here 101 at 680, your map is relatively calm. that's why we haven't been focusing here. this has been a steady easy build through 101 and 87. this is fremont, recovery for southbound 680, that crash cleared at mission boulevard. it's slow to recover because of the build off sunol. 880 building in out of hayward, union city and towards fremont. the rig over on the shoulder that was blocking the slow lane, all that activity is cleared between stephenson and auto mall parkway. that dog reportedly had a broken
