each school had too much lead in them. the taps were immediately shut down. the san francisco public utilities commission says the water flowing into the school is safe and that the lead is most likely coming from the plumbing fixtures and pipes. the "chronicle" says these three schools are on a growing list of schools all over the state that are also seeing high levels of lead. the superintendent told the "chronicle": we are letting people know as much information as quickly as possible. just a couple of months ago mcclymonds high school in oakland had lead problems. the toxic metal was coming from the faucets in the cafeteria, the water fountain at the football field and the showerheads in the locker rooms. they were quickly shut down. temporarily water filters have been installed and water dispensers are now scattered around the school. the longer term solution here is to replace the entire school's piping system but that could take longer than a year and possibly cost up to $2.5 million. so we don't know what san francisco usd's solution for this school and the other schools in san francisco are but we hope to learn later on. in san francisco, jackie ward,

i said it before but definitely another reminder to parents, don't send your kids with long pants to school. that's what my wife did yesterday. my wife sent my daughter yesterday to preschool with long pants. she was sweating profusely when i picked her up! >> shorts a good thing today. it's going to be hot. that video of that rain got me thinking about rain. that would be nice, wouldn't it? we have that in our long-range forecast. also want to show you the airport, nice and clear conditions. calm winds yesterday, all airports reporting no weather problems. that's going to be the same today. here's the deal. 15 degrees above average expected again today. so that hot and dry air is back. same with the offshore winds. 6:17 today. satellite-radar, no cloud cover, just a little spot here and there. we are going to see more blue skies today once the sun comes up so it makes for pretty views out there. winds are calm, which means we
are not going to see a significant increase in our temperatures. but we are going to see still that hot air because of the direction of the winds. so it's not the extreme winds. our futurecast showing probably 4 to 5-mile-per-hour breezes today but that's about it. but again it's all about the direction and we are going to get that shift to rise though. humidity levels are going to be around 50, 70% here this morning. but dropping off a little bit later on today seeing them in the probably 40 to 50% range because the winds aren't so strong. high temperatures 70s to 90s. above average temperatures up to 19 degrees above average for some areas. now, we're watching this low as it makes its way towards california. that's going to help drop our temperatures down. this is by saturday and sunday. and then here's another low. out there in the pacific, once that works its way towards california, that's when we may see that chance of rain. but it's not for a while.
8 to 10 days out. so we still have a while. but for your halloween at least, conditions will be clear skies and cool out there. 60s and 70s expected once we get through the weekend. so even the inland areas will be cooling off significantly next week. kenny. bart's introduction of new cars for its trains will be a gradual process. the transit agency told the "san francisco chronicle" that the new cars are not compatible with the older ones. so bart will run two types of trains for a while. ones with all old cars and ones with all new cars. they will be alternated on different routes and schedules. so let's take a look at transit this morning with jaclyn. how are things looking? >> well, we'll start with bart, where they have 59 trains in service all running on time. so that's good news there. you may want to consider using mass transit today because the roads, they are slow! this is a live look over at the bay bridge toll plaza -- excuse me, the richmond/san rafael bridge toll plaza. and it's about a 23-minute commute from marina bay
parkway, 580 definitely stacking up as you head across over to sir francis drake. eastshore freeway not looking good. it's just under a 45-minute ride as you make your way from highway 4 on down towards the maze. then we continue to see about 40 minutes as you are heading into san francisco. that earlier accident that had a lane blocked right near the fremont street exit that's cleared. your approach to the maze is stacked up beyond highway 24. so major slowdowns trying to over to the bay bridge toll plaza. slow ride into hayward. we have a new crash on the san mateo bridge and that's keeping your ride heavy into foster city about 31 minutes. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. jaclyn, thank you. time now 6:52. after more than 50 years today a moment many have been waiting for! next, what we could learn from thousands of pages of documents that are expected to be released on jfk's

it's 6--- time for your final five... i'm anne makovec live at sfo with new security measures for all people coming into america from foreign countries. there are 2100 flights arriving daily from around the country from outside the united states and it could include interviews on check-in or at the gated as well as enhanced passenger screening and heightened screening of electronics. it's going to depend on the airline. this does apply to u.s. citizens and foreigners. this is in lieu of that laptop ban that was temporarily in effect this summer banning small electronics in cabins.
