much above average rainfall is forecast for the majority of state of california including the entire bay area. look for a lot of rainfall and hopefully a lot of mountain snowfall january february and march. this is video from the last time we had a very strong el nino. if you lived near 1997, how can you forget? it's been nearly 20 years. we had a tremendous amount of rainfall then. some problems to go with the rainfall. now we are sitting at a four- year drought. we want the rain. we don't want the flooding. but all signs point toward very wet weather coming up this winter because of a very strong el nino. back to you. >> thank you. wires standing in the way of super bowl city. tonight the million-dollar face- lift before the festivities can start and how it could mess with your commute. >> pilots blinded by bees. a laser strike spree around the country. 20 planes hit in one night. the extreme measures some pilots are taking. >> it's a war to get rid of your wallet and apple is jumping in. how it wants to make it easier

>> reporter: it may be the question who has the power to take down muni's power. again, nothing set in stone. we should know more in the first week in december when this issue comes up in a city hall committee. mike sugerman, kpix 5. there are already plans to reroute some muni bus lines an historic streetcars away from super bowl city. and that plan would be in place for more than a week during the festivities. oakland's mayor is getting some high marks for her presentation to nfl owners aimed at keeping the raiders in town. her 23-page slide show featured the city's finest points from its booming business climate and plans for a massive coliseum complex to its die- hard fan base. owners were impressed. but it may be no match for disney's ceo bob iger hired by the raiders and the san diego chargers to help them build a stadium near l.a. we'll hear what the mayor has

system. it may reportedly be available next year. several banks are also developing peer-to-peer payments. and ready or not, retailers are announcing significant holiday changes this year. black friday will look different at walmart. it's doing away with doorbusters hoping to avoid crazy scenes like this. instead, it's sparking a mad rush by slashing prices on a limited number of big ticket items, but it will make the special deals available for anyone to lines up between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. on thanksgiving. more civilized. meanwhile, we could see a lot of sales and discounts this holiday season thanks in large part to sluggish fall sales at macy's. the retailer announced it will mark down inventory to make room for the new stuff. that's bad news for retailers but good for consumers. competitors will probably match the deep discounts. analysts expect this holiday season will be highly discount driven because americans just aren't shopping
like they used to. instead, they are spending more on eating out, on phones and entertainment services like netflix. >> that's interesting. rei said we are not going to be open on black friday. >> i wouldn't be surprised if somebody else jumped on that bandwagon, as well. >> in the meantime there's a guy who is going for the record. he has already started camping out. 33 days before black friday. >> what's he camping out for? i bet he is sponsored by the store -- >> i think he is trying to raise awareness for a cause. talk about good. how about spectacular? the weather today? spectacular. really nice. >> it was a nice day. a little rainfall is coming. the timing is impeccable. we have lost the sunlight so we are going to start getting
cooler and we have already cooled to the 50s in oakland, livermore and san francisco. san jose currently 60. santa rosa 63 degrees. where do we go tonight? napa, santa rosa no frost advisory but it will be chilly. cold in fairfield and vacaville. 30s for you. livermore, concord, alamo 30s. san jose 41. kind of a trend so far this morning. san jose especially is 4.5 degrees colder than you typically are in november. contrast that with san francisco which is barely below average so it depends where you are but everybody running colder than average so far this month of there's a big developing weather story to our north. we are talking about flooding rainfall which likely will last three days in the pacific northwest. some parts of the cascades and olympics may receive 10 feet of snow! 120 inches of snow over the next couple of days above 6,000 feet in elevation. notice all of that is being steered by this ridge of high pressure to our south. that's the reason why we will stay dry despite the fact they are going to get a ton of rain. flooding is likely.
perhaps too much of a good thing. as that ridge moves out, the front that's up there will sweep very quickly through the bay area. we are going to get a nice little burst of rainfall up to half inch of rain and here's the best part. the timing, the rain is going to likely begin after you go to bed saturday night and be finished before you get up on sunday morning. so most of the weekend when you're out and about will be rain-free but we'll get the much-needed rainfall coming in saturday night and sunday morning. look at the rainfall totals. 5 or more inches of rain for almost the almost entire half of western washington state. the one inch line been over mendocino county. south of there including the bay area a quarter to half inch of rainfall saturday night and sunday morning. we are chilly again tonight, dry and mild for the next two days through saturday with that rain arriving late saturday night. highs tomorrow a little milder closer to average. concord up to 66. san jose a very comfortable sunny 68. san mateo 66 degrees tomorrow. you will hit 70 in dublin. get close to it in fairfield.
vallejo 66 with sunshine tomorrow. cold start mild in san francisco. mill valley 66. novato 68. low 70s for lake county, mendocino county and north sonoma county. a little cloudier by saturday afternoon. that rain races through saturday night. it will be heavy at times. but it will be gone well before lunchtime and next week mainly drive with 60s and 70s. eventually we'll need more than one day of rain per week. but for now, it's a good start. camera loves riley. now the adorable daughter of steph curry has found a new way to steal the spotlight as a model. ,,
>> the company's founder says the 3-year-old is a natural in front of the camera. tell us something we didn't know, right? >> yeah. >> she is cute. well, tonight jill schlesinger has some surprising tips from recruiters that can help you in your job hunt. reporter: when you send a resume' off to a potential employer, have you ever wondered how many other people have applied for the same job? it may be fewer than you think. recruiters report that almost half of the positions they post attract 50 applicants or less. the jobs that attract a lot of attention 250 applications or more are typically in marketing, finance, government and hospitality. a survey turned up other interesting tidbits. for instance, when on the hunt for job candidates, 92% of recruiters use social media at some point while linkedin is the most popular resource, facebook is a solid second. 55% of recruiters report using it. the top thing they are hoping to learn from your social media feeds? how long you typically stay at
a job. and once you get in the door for an interview, several surprising factors are likely to leave a lasting impression and they have very little to do with your job qualifications. instead, recruiters are impressed with a candidate's enthusiasm, industry knowledge and conversation skills. i'm jill schlesinger for kpix 5. ,,,,,,,,,,
