mavericks. so if you add everything up, you want a strong low in the north pacific. you want that. you want it up to 2,000 miles away so you can get that long swell and you can also get a long westerly fetch. you want those winds to come in from the west. you want the waves to come in from the west. basically, everything is adding up for perfect conditions this friday at mavericks and game on, we are going to be surfing there coming up on friday. the weather should cooperate as well if you want to go out there close by and watch. we'll talk about any rain chances locally. there is some rain in the seven- day forecast now. we'll have that coming up. in about 20 minutes, the issue of san francisco police and officers' use of force is going to be put up for debate. here's a live look at city hall where the police commission is set to hold its meeting. the police officers association is going to ask to change the policy. it wants officers to be able to carry tasers. the recent deadly shooting of mario woods has ignited protests and calls for change. president obama is headed to the bay area tonight. he is coming to attend two

san francisco all staying in the 50s. maybe you're heading down to pebble beach. it will be beautiful weather to watch the tournament there. tomorrow and friday, highs around 70 degrees with a mixture of sun and clouds. so we did get some cloud cover once again today. because the ridge of high pressure is no longer directly over the bay area, it has slid to our south, it is allowing some of the cloud cover, the southern edge of a couple of fronts, to make it into the bay area. so we are getting cloud cover. but we're thumbs down on the rainfall. the rain is going to stay well to our north because that ridge will stay close enough to send all the rain into oregon and washington. this is futurecast. this is a wide version. next storm, there are storms out there. pacific northwest. friday, another front. more for the pacific northwest. zero for us. actually over the weekend high pressure will reestablish itself and notice all of northern california is completely dry. so there are some storms but
that ridge is now taking them and sending them well to our north. so we're partly cloudy again tonight, watch for some patchy valley fog. mild again tomorrow with a mixture of sun and clouds. and we'll stay dry right through the weekend. highs tomorrow around 70 degrees. it sounds like we are giving you an april forecast. it's cooler than the entire we are. we are still 10 degrees above average. fremont and napa 71. san francisco 67 degrees. if anything, we are going to get warmer on sunday and monday. valentine's day maybe outdoor brunch because we are going to be in the 70s again inland. but there it is. perhaps the pattern begins to shift to cooler cloudier weather. it's still a week away which is the not good part but the good part is, for the first time in about 10 days we have rain on the seven-day forecast. >> great news. good to see that again. >> take it when we can get it. >> absolutely, thanks, paul. everybody looks for a great deal when booking a hotel but consumerwatch reporter julie watts discovered some online booking sites can lead travelers in a bad place. >> reporter: now, we're not talking about orbitz, travelocity or those other big sites. rather, the travel industry says there are thousands of smaller third party booking sites that they say lead people to believe they are dealing
with the actual hotel. for example, this hampton inn and five results are actually ads from smaller third party booking companies. their web addresses are similar to the hotel's. kevin carroll of the san francisco hotel council says consumers who click on them often don't realize they are dealing with a middleman and that can be a problem. >> when they arrive it may not be the room they wanted. it may not be the type of room or the level of room or may not be -- have the accessibility needs they might need and it may not also include the loyalty programs of the hotel, as well. >> reporter: or you may have trouble changing or canceling a reservation. the american hotel and lodging association says some of these sites are simply out and out frauds that you will take customers' money or even steal their identities. it's estimated consumers lose more than $1.3 billion a year because of deceptive or fraudulent booking sites. so how can you tell if you're on a third party booking site? look for extra words in the web address like reservation or the name of the city or simply call
the hotel directly and ask. now, a bill introduced in washington today would require these third party travel sites to clearing identify on every page of their website that they are not affiliated with the hotel. in the newsroom, julie watts, kpix 5. fast food joints aren't exactly known for always getting your order correct. a man's apology after throwing an alligator into a wendy's drive through. here's the closing numbers from wall street. the market closed mixed today. he
