bay bridge toll plaza so near the metering lights westbound 80. you can see right here from these live pictures the toll plaza backups are now lengthy. it extends beyond the 880 overcrossing. it's going to be slow as well for the san mateo bridge this morning because of earlier accidents. that's "kcbs traffic." i'm looking at our live weather camera looking out towards sfo. i see some movement on the planes but those are ones that are going to be departing but on some arriving flights we have delays over 1 hour and 30 minutes on some arriving flights due to this slate of gray. low clouds and fog and drizzle at the coast into the bay and inland. temperatures into the 50s but when you factor in a wind that's been blowing easily up to 8 to 10 miles per hour, in throughout the tri-valley, 9 miles per hour in antioch, 15 in fairfield, it adds a bit of a chill. you will require a light jacket out the door. area of low pressure about
right here. you see the counterclockwise rotation around the core. that's been enhancing our marine layer plus tossing some other clouds into other forecast. bottom line is we have drizzle this morning. we have the mostly cloudy skies during the day with a few sunny breaks and then gradual warming after today. satellite and radar, there's an area of low pressure sagging to the south before it goes east allowing high pressure to build in from the west. we'll provide ample sunshine over the weekend because of this high and some warmer conditions. if you want to plan out your lunch hour today, you see the clouds linger along the san mateo bridge coast also the santa cruz beaches and then during the afternoon hours, we'll be watching this very carefully. a chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm at the delta or in the far reaches of the north bay from the instability associated with the area of low pressure dragging it south. 79 sacramento. 60 monterey bay. sun-up 5:52. by the time it sets, 50s beaches, 60s base, 60s peninsula, up to 77 in

an indian restaurant. no one was there. it probably smoldered for some time before raging out of control. santa clara called for mutual aid and the fire went to five alarms. seven businesses are destroyed although it's hard to say which ones since the signs are burned. the building was older with multiple additions and a facade that collapsed making it risky for firefighters to battle from the inside. we caught up with the owner of the ballet studio. she was anxiously watching the firefighters hold the line at her business. >> probably at least the most dang at this point, i'm not sure what else, i don't know if it's water. they are trying to hold the unit in front of me. so far they have been successful. but it will be several hours before we can go in and evaluate the building. >> reporter: we have had a couple of fires over the years here at channel 5 and i can tell you that the smell of the smoke is probably something like, um, um, plastic or some
kind of manmade materials. it's horrible. it tells you the sort of shifting nature of what's happening here as the smoke kind of drifts our way so they are going to be out here for hours. and if you are headed this way, stay away for some time because el camino real is closed in between nobili and flora vista. live in santa clara, kiet do, kpix 5. a desperate search in sacramento for a dad and his baby girl who have been missing since sunday. kyler jackson and his daughter were last seen in antioch. they took off for a drive to sacramento but never made it. the coast guard is now searching the sacramento river along the highway. jackson's cell phone has gone to voicemail since sunday. police believe that he is driving a silver sedan. it didn't take long. san francisco is reversing course on allowing visitors pay for a reserve spot at dolores park. the city parks and rec department had been charging up to $260 depending on the size of the group. that system generated a huge public outcry and the agency put it on hold so it can get
public input. time now 6:32. a little warmup, and the sharks are heating up. >> if you were going to say they would be in this position at the beginnin of the season, you might not believe it. there's not one person on the sharks team who has won a stanley cup including the coach except for the goalie martin jones who won it with the kings and he was backup goalie at that time. they're hungry! >> let's do it! >> they say win tonight, they advance to the finals. they have a big party at 3 p.m. people are all happy and excited for the game. the rally at 3:00, 70 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. puck drops at 6 p.m.
in the santa clara valley right now mostly cloudy skies. no delays at mineta. but here due to the low clouds, we have delays at sfo over 1 hour on some arriving flights. it's in the 50s and everybody is reporting overcast conditions. later today remaining mostly cloudy with a few sunny breaks. very similar to yesterday. 50s beaches, 60s at the points, 70s inland. 73 brentwood and discovery bay. 72 santa rosa. i'll have your full forecast coming up. it's been a crazy commute out there, roberta. we now have a new accident in san jose. it's on 880 northbound. we'll go to a map right now and i'll show you where this accident happened involving several vehicles. northbound 880 just before the alameda, at least two lanes of traffic are shut down. you can see it is at a crawl from at least stevens creek.
a new problem also cropped up. this time on 101 in san jose. northbound at story, an accident off to the right-hand shoulder. you can see it is causing a backup. right now we are looking at a two-mile backup approaching the accident scene and, of course, we continue to watch that fire burning at the strip mall in santa clara, el camino real shut down both ways between nobili and flora vista. this is also affecting vta service in the area. they are being forced to reroute and this is affecting bus lines 22 and 522. again, this is on vta. alternates: too avoidavoid the neighborhood entirely by taking homestead and central expressway. altamont pass is tough. two separate accidents, one at grant lines the other at flynn, 1 1/2 hour delays now leaving the 205 interchange. so if you normally take this stretch to leave tracy and get into the tri-valley, you may want to think about taking the ace train. so far the ace train has been on schedule. the bay bridge toll plaza is
doing okay. it's an average commute interest with the backup extending to the foot of the maze. there was an earlier accident reported near the toll plaza. that's just been cleared up from lanes. heading for the san mateo bridge, that crash we had on the nimitz that's just been cleared up. westbound 92 now heavy across the san mateo bridge. marin county will start charging to park at muir woods. county supervisors have given initial approval to a new parking reservation system. the number of spaces will be reduced from 400 to about 100 and parking along the roadside will be eliminated. the system will take about two years to put into place. muni is looking into reports of bus drivers taking excessive breaks. they are investigating a handful of abuses like drivers taking dinner breaks while passengers sit and wait. one man told us that a driver made him stand outside the bus in the rain until his break was over. muni says it's reviewing
whether some drivers are abusing the system. >> it's only done by a small amount of operators. so it's something we want to make sure we're looking at it as we improve the system. >> no comments from the drivers. in san francisco today a justice summit centered on officer shootings and use of force. kpix 5's anne makovec is live at police headquarters on the event that could bring reforms to sfpd. >> reporter: this comes at a critical time for the sfpd and it's a big shake-up here. of course, the old chief stepped down last week. there is a new interim chief in charge of implementing department wide reforms. the department's use of force policy is 20 years old right now and the city is in the process of updating it. but as things stand officers have no tasers, no shields, so in several recent confrontations which will be analyzed today, officers have resorted to using deadly force.
their guns as they did with mario woods last year, a suspect armed with a knife. our kpix 5 security analyst says that these kinds of situation can quickly turn deadly. >> could we do more training in deescalation? i'm sure we could. we could do more training with everything we do in life because, you know, we get better by doing training. you show up on scene with somebody who is going to try to kill you, it can turn ugly really quick. >> reporter: we have heard from a lot of protestors over the past few months calling for change in the department, the calls have been growing louder. they actually want criminal charges as well for the officers involved in at least four recent deadly shootings, which will be analyzed today. this use of force summit an annual event. anne makovec, kpix 5. alburqueque, new mexico, dealing with the aftermath of the latest political protests that some say has gone mad. protestors clashed with police
last night outside the rally for presumptive republican nominee donald trump. they threw rocks and bottles. police fired pepper spray and smoke grenades. there was also vandalism. hillary clinton will be in the bay area for two days today. she will join her husband former president bill clinton for a fundraiser in atherton. and tomorrow she will speak at a rally at parkside hall in downtown san jose. meanwhile her democratic opponent senator bernie sanders has released a television ad in california. >> california, it's a long way to washington. but you can send them a message they can't ignore. i'm bernie sanders. and i approve this message. >> what choice do californians have? >> the 30-second ads shows farm workers and college students in sharp contrast to images of wall street. the sanders campaign will spend $1.5 million airing the ad in
los angeles, fresno and sacramento markets. you will see you in labels on beef at your stores warning about the dangers of extra tender meat. the usda requires all sellers to label meat that's been mechanically tenderized. that's when blades or needles cut into meat to make it easier to chew. it may transfer bacteria to the inside of meats and make people sick. the usda also requires labels to include safe cooking instructions. the cdc has tracked 6 outbreaks of food-borne illnesses linked to mechanically tenderized beef since 2000. a bay area finance company has ruffled some feathers in the community. why some are calling their new ads insensitive. >> and hulk hogan is in the spotlight this time over reports of a secret alliance with one of the cofounders of paypal. ,,
