the new year is just a week away and with 2017 come as new parking crack down at bart stations and larger fines for illegal parking. pete shows us how much it will cost at bart parking lots next year. >> reporter: that fine could double for those who park illegally in the bart parking lot and that's going to start next week and it could nearly double if you park in a permit lot. and here are it changes we're going to see next week. if you're in a daily spot, that fine last year was 35 but now it's jumping to $55 and if you illegally parked in a fine previously was $40 but now it's goteeing double to $75. and an additional fine of 100 bucks and if you have 10 or more it's going to jump to $150.
bart's reasoning is to make it more costly for riders who deal with the fines instead of paying the tole at parking stations -- around parking lots in san francisco and bart stations specifically in san francisco. bart approved all this back in february. the new fines are going to kick in next week on february 2nd. january first will also bring a host of new state laws. 2017 redskins will be banned for the name of any school team or mascot. the minimum wage will increase for any business with 26 or more employees. climb to $15 an hour state wide in 2022. a tougher gun laws already illegal to sell any magazine more than 10 rounds. now it's illegal to own them as well. they will have to be stored in a trunk or lock box and terminally ill patients will be allowed to

it said our customers are important to us and we want them to have a positive experience. we're glad we were able to resolve the situation for rita. you can call us anytime. the number is 888-996-tips or nbcbayarea.com/responds. i just checked the data base. >> that is good. but the night is still young. $650. that's a lot of money. >> have a good night. >> if you are in a market for a new car, this is a good time to shop. dealers try to clear their show rooms and hit sales targets before the new year. this also means they're more likely to offer big rebaits on 2016 models. some of the best deals are found on vehicles with a lease and at
least a partial factory warranty. >> good insight, good information. >> and if it doesn't work out, chris is here. we'll get you covered weather wise too. all i can think about is -- >> higher up. we're watching that for you. 2017 we'll see cooler changes and believe it or not it's the new year as of sunday. it's in change of seven-day forecast. and speaking of temperatures, look at fairfax. now you're tracking dropping temperatures 39 degrees already in fairfax. cloud free skies. not even 7:00. palo alto 47 degrees.
the last few hours continue to drop in notice. the concrete, in the sun lithe hours of the day. you almost see 6 to 8 degrees cooler. you see those locations likely seeing a little bit of patchy frost tomorrow morning. copy and paste it into wednesday. not much changes midweek. they'll be warming up a little bit more towards wednesday with low 60s in reach. mid-40s in the forecast. it will be the north bay and tri-valley where the wind sheltered valley s were in the low 20s. 60s in san jose. upper 50s to mid-50s around walnut creek and for the peninsula towards san francisco
a very similar forecast. mid50s to upper 50s with high clouds at times for your tuesday. but change is starting to take shape in the extended forecast. we'll begin to take shape and lift in our direction, we think by thursday into friday. so this will bring in more clouds and here comes that chance of rain impacting more of the south bay. as we get to the start of the weekend. rain projections. we think the higher totals will be across southern california. late friday into saturday, maybe see rain south of san jose. block high in the gulf of alaska could set the stage for a plunge of arctic air which means for north bay county, notice how far out in advance we're moving here because january 3rd, towards the middle of next week, there's the
chance of lowering snow levels and lowering temperatures in your forecast. likely holding up to about friday afternoon. and we'll see the chance of showers from the south. and patchy frost possible. mid-week, a bit more mild but stayed tuned. 2017 could see highs in the 40s and lowering snow levels this time next week. thanks a lot. well are it refs to blame for the warriors' last minute loss. with the xfinity tv app, anything with a screen is a tv. stream 130 live channels. plus 40,000 on demand tv shows and movies, all on the go. you can even download from your x1 dvr and watch it offline.
the warriors and cavaliers renewed their rivalry on christmas and the game certainly lived up to all the hype. >> some questionable calls may have played a role in the outcome. >> reporter: well the golden state warriors and their fans waited a long time for the christmas day show down against the cavaliers. and surprisingly, steph curry continues to struggle against the cavaliers. >> part of it is that they're defending him really well. they use their better defenders. they usually go with a longer defender. j.r. smith was out but on sunday you saw a lot of iman and the youngster. and their job is basically to face guard steph. follow him wherever he goes and make sure he doesn't get loose. they know steph has the ball a lot. if you're the cap's coach,
you're thinking i got klay thompson and steph curry a lot. we'll put kyrie on klay at times and not give him that assignment. the last four times he's seen them, games five, six, and seven and here on sunday, he didn't look like steph curry. and he admitted it. he basically said i need to figure out a way to be more aggressive and get more shots at the rim. >> when the game is over the warriors don't want to cry foul but yesterday they had a right to call foul. in fact, the nba admitted they made a comal of mistakes. >> first of all, lebron james on this situation right here. there was no question whatsoever. i mean, he hung on the rim for about half an hour and there was no call. and you see draymond green saying wait a minute, what happened here? because he got called for a
technical foul when he didn't hang for a half as long in a dangerous situation. and you have richard jefferson obviously fouling kevin durant and getting no call. i know sometimes they let them play, let them play. but when you have a play like that when the foul is obvious and you don't call it, it's really -- people look at the refs and say they really aren't that good and they are but they don't see it and i don't know how you miss that. >> hypothetical, if that was played in oakland, would the warriors have gotten most of those calls? >> some come into the home town arena and if there's anything close they'll go against the home team. depends on who you have but in this instance, you're look athtwo plays where you say these directly influnlsenced the game. lebron's technical would have
given warriors a free throw. and then they didn't get a chance to get off the last shot with the kevin durant situation. you say these could have been difference makers. but you have a 14-point lead. you got to look at that. >> turnovers hurt the warriors. and that's going to do it for now. coming up tonight at 11:00, stories of how the late pop singer quietly helped charities and individuals in need without asking for credit. that and more tonight at 11:00. those people going out. >> nice thick coat. we're going to have temperatures dropping off. tonight temperatures in the single digits around lake tahoe. 20s and 30s to start out the north bay and the tri-valley. >> we'll see you back here tonight at 11:00. g new details on the
