their surroundings and that means staying off your smartphone. in union square in san francisco, jackie ward, kpix 5. a record number of people will be traveling this holiday weekend. bay area airports have been packed. things were busy at the oakland airport with long lines to check your bags but security lines not too bad. travelers at l.a.x. kept an eye on flight boards after storms delayed more than 130 flights there this morning. that caused a ripple effect of problems across the country. the weather has caused some problems all around the bay area. just look at where this car landed. the driver hydroplaned on interstate 680 in fremont. then he says he rolled over four or five times nearly landing in somebody's backyard. he is okay, but his dog ran away after the crash. >> that's my girl right there

6:07 pm
of possibility with first things first. we had good rain and showers around the bay area and this kind of sets the tone for the rest of the night. scattered showers in the south bay heading out of the area. a little bit off the north coast, and so from time to time tonight we could get a shower heavy at times but the rain is all turning into snow in the mountains. if you are heading for the hills, give yourself extra time. the gusty winds and delays likely with as much as three feet of snow at 7,000 feet and above. but the headline with this is the low snow levels that could affect us in the bay area. so to sum it all up, we have some showers tonight. and then the snow level over the weekend with the cold air coming in lowers the snow level to about 2,000 feet clearing, cold, dry for christmas. but a 2,000-foot snow level means it's possible we get a dusting of snow up in the mountains of the bay area. so stay tuned on that. and speaking of white christmas, veronica? >> yeah. brian, thank you for that. it's going to be a white christmas in the mountains. there's an avalanche warning in some parts of the sierra

6:09 pm
crews are making sure driving conditions are clear as the snow picks up. >> people need to know what they are getting into. these aren't some little mountains in the middle of nowhere. these are the sierras and we get a lot of snow and traffic. >> reporter: caltrans stopped someone going over 75 miles an hour in a chain area recently which leads to impound, fine and time in jail. in miac, kelly ryan, kpix 5. with the cold weather, there is a bigger need for homeless shelters. you can imagine san jose shelters are offering more beds this week after temperatures dropped. that as the santa clara county medical examiner says the number of homeless deaths has doubled from just last year. >> when people are chronically homeless they generally have compromised health and they are certainly not taking care of themselves so when you add on that extra trauma of weather, often times their systems are just not built up enough to resist and so people will die because of exposure. >> well, starting tonight, san

6:16 pm
registrar declared sylvia arenas the winner by 87 votes. these are the actual 200-plus ballots that have been invalidated because the signature on the envelope does not match the signature on the voter registration card. nguyen wants them counted. what has this done to your faith in the system. i still have faith in the system. i hope our elected officials hear your news report and then figure out what we can do to help these voters. >> the law doesn't allow knee do what jimmy is asking. >> reporter: the registrar says the signature comparison process is rigorous but flexible. for example, these three signatures would not be considered a match because of the different style. but take a look at the second and fourth ones. even though it's not exact, there are similarities and so it will be accepted. those 200 invalidated ballots did not pass muster and by law they can't even be opened let alone counted. as for accusations that they are disenfranchising voters -- > we are open to any changes that the legislature makes to the
6:17 pm
elections code and we'll follow whatever law is decided and given to us. >> reporter: david nguyen casted one of those invalidated ballots. he and jimmy have known each other for years. he learned the signature didn't match the one on final only after a jimmy nguyen volunteer came to his house and told him. >> had the volunteer not come i would have gone on the rest of my life filling out this ballot by mail and just assuming my votes were going to counted. >> reporter: sylvia arenas' spokesman patrick mcgarrity didn't mince words. >> these are desperate theatrics of a campaign that's loves twice. >> reporter: if jimmy wants a second recount, he will have to pay for it. it will cost about $1,600 a day. he says that campaign donations are coming in to help cover some of that cost. and he says he is considering legal action. in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. a huge victory for arizona's governor. today in phoenix he welcomed uber's fleet of self-driving cars. uber rolled out the fleet in san francisco last week but it

6:19 pm
potential of drivers losing their jobs to automation but ducey who campaigned on creating jobs says technology is nothing to fear. >> it's the same mentality of the buggy whip manufacturers. the automotive technology has employed -- the industry -- i think the world's changing. i think there will be jobs available. we're always going to have the service economy with us and thank goodness we are. >> reporter: little comfort for this uber driver who worries technology will leave him behind. >> how's that going to help me this week, next month, when these cars are pouring in? brian hackney in for chief meteorologist paul deanno. it woke me up last night middle of the night raining hard at my place. first thing i thought of was, damn, that hackney was right again. >> brian's always right. >> damn it!

6:27 pm
soybean. i don't so you crack one open you would find much milk or any liquid there. all we want is for the government to enforce the regulations on the books that says you don't got milk if it comes from a nut or seed. >> reporter: historically the fda kept out of this battle. but this time, it says it will respond directly to the congressman who wrote to them. now, we heard back from the almond industry and they tell us their product is fortified with vitamins and calcium and it's you want to consumer to decide. cbs news, washington.
