her gusts about 60 in the oakland hills. as we look at what's going to happen between now and midnight you can see that by then, forecast winds are still expected to be around 41 miles an hour in half moon bay, gusts up to 31 in san jose. so strong winds will continue for a while. peak wind gusts so far 43 miles an hour at livermore. napa at the airport had a wind gust of 52. oakland 62. those in the hills above downtown. and at reid-hillview in san jose they had a 40-mile-an-hour gust all being powered by high pressure battling a low that's now moved over the desert southwest so those strong winds will persist out of the north through tonight. we can expect 30 to 45-mile-an- hour wind gusts in the cities and at the coast and the hills, even stronger gusts. we'll have the complete forecast coming up. by the way it will go from windy to cold by tomorrow. that will be our story for new year's eve but in the meantime we have the winds to contend with and how. veronica? >> thank you. the high winds and fallen tree limbs caused chaos for bart. >> yeah. many of the trains had to be
6:01 pm
delayed, slowed down, and in some cases turned around. kpix 5's cate caugiran is live at 24th and mission with some pretty frustrated commuters. >> reporter: commuters are happier than when we first arrived at bart and 24th because things have cleared up. this came at the worst time. it came at the peak of the evening commute. people traveling for the new year's eve holidays several of them trying to get to sfo and for those few hours, they had to seek outside transportation. we're talking monis or rideshare options like uber or lyft that were certainly on surge prices as i checked and as you can imagine bart riders we spoke with were not happy. >> it's coming from work and it's cold, the weather, transportation, people all over you. and you want to get home. >> i'm cold right now so it's like last thing i want to do is sitting out in the wind and cold and not be able to go out tomorrow. >> reporter: all of this because of those high winds
6:02 pm
that caused a tree to fall on the tracks. there are still ongoing problems throughout the bay area. hayward fire department tweeted this photo of the tree on bart tracks near that area causing problems at hayward and south hayward on the fremont line in the fremont, richmond and daly city directions. there's also more problems. we're hearing that service between the coliseum and oakland airport is shut down so it's going to be a long night for commuters. back to you in the studio. >> thank you, cate. kpix 5's da lin is live along interstate 880 in vallejo where another toppled tree stopped traffic. >> reporter: we're on eastbound 580 now. that's a giant eucalyptus tree that fell on i-80. strong winds completely uprooted that tree. now, the size of this tree is the reason why it's taking workers so long to clear it. only one eastbound lane is reopened. the chp says the tree fell late
6:03 pm
this afternoon taking down power lines. and that forced this em to shut down both directions of i-80. officers reopened the westbound direction once they removed all the debris on that side. they say they are working as fast as they can to try to re- open all lanes in the eastbound direction. one witness say some of the branches fell on a car causing a minor accident on the freeway. the minivan swerved over got hit by tree. i was slamming my brakes sliding and actually slammed into them. >> you just hear a loud bang, the power was -- the power started flickering and it went off for a while and we just run outside and all you see is the trees fall. the car would try to swing and avoid it. >> they've team of about 15 people and some heavy equipment out here working to clear the tree. let's come back live now. you can see a cherrypicker a man working on the cherrypicker
6:04 pm
to try to cut some branches from the gigantic -- this giant eucalyptus tree. again, the size of that tree is the reason why it's going to take a while for them to clear this area. and also, i want to show you the freeway, over on the eastbound direction only one lane as i mentioned earlier has been reold. this direction, it's a three lane eastbound i-80, so when you shut down the other two lanes it's going to cause giant backups and that seems to be the case right now. if you don't have to get through this area, the advice is to avoid this area altogether. live here in vallejo, i'm da lin, kpix 5. another downed tree causing traffic trouble in the east bay. it blocked lanes on northbound 238 in hayward near 880. the southbound 880 connector to 238 also blocked. that has traffic backing up on 580. pg&e crews worked on power lines in mill valley earlier today. tonight, the utility is scrambling to keep up with all

6:06 pm
wind speeds. ann. >> reporter: we're on skyline boulevard. with mobile weather, it has been showing us that for the last several hours the wind speeds have stayed consistent. mobile weather now telling us that the wind speed is about 3 miles an hour. we are averaging about 4 to 2 miles an hour. with our peak gust of wind in the last hour at 20 miles an hour. as far as the temperature it says it's about 42 degrees and it feels like it. but as we have been hearing in this newscast, it's not the cold, it's the wind that's causing the problem. pier 39's christmas tree was being put to the test today with gusts to 45 miles an hour. we'll find out just how secure those ornaments are in the next several hours. drivers are being warned to be careful on bridges. but the wind is causing problems in areas you would think would be more protected. winds uprooted a huge tree in concord that came crashing down at concord avenue and diamond boulevard clipping a corvette on the way down.

afternoon commute. >> we are having trees that are toppled throughout contra costa county. >> reporter: roy carlisle's car was smashed by a tree in oakland. he says coming from up north he should have known better today. >> i'm from the northwest. we have this kind of winds all the time. and i'm just used to trees falling down. but i wasn't smart enough to not park by one. that's the moral of the story. >> reporter: construction workers in walnut creek were spraying down dust to keep it from blowing in the wind. other than that, it was business as usual. >> basically the work that we're doing here today we're low to the ground. there's no concern of essentially somebody getting blown off a floor or something like that. >> reporter: but we did spot workers for san francisco who were not on the ground floor. at the very least, you know it was cold. somebody was telling me that we have all this technology to show people how the weather is faring. maybe i should use something more basic like a plastic garbage bag to show how the wind is blowing. it's not as bad as expected in the berkeley hills.
6:08 pm

6:09 pm
back in september at this apartment complex parking lot after the off-duty officer chased down the car that allegedly rear-ended him. an internal investigation determined the officer's actions were justified. >> this officer was a legitimate dualy authorized police officer. our duty manual policy says if he chooses to go ahead and take an enforcement action he is covered by our duty policies an procedures. >> reporter: it found he showed his badge before the camera was rolling. at that point detaining the woman was fair game according to department policy. >> covers him and allows him the opportunity to go ahead and act as a normal police officer under normal circumstances situation. >> my view is that that view of how to analyze whether or not force is appropriate is too narrow. that it needs to be broader. >> reporter: judge ladoris cordell is the independent police auditor for san jose pd. she reviews the department's
6:10 pm
internal investigations if a public complaints on officer conduct is filed. no complaint was filed for this case. but she says current internal investigations at san jose pd and many other police departments don't put enough emphasis on what led to the use of force. >> the analysis should also consider the proportionality. was the use of force appropriate to whatever gave rise to the use of force.

6:15 pm
there was no need for my car or anything and it just makes me sad that there are people out there that would do this. >> reporter: this fire was the most concerning because it was very close to the apartment building. as you can see here the heat damaged the plastic shutters and put a lot of lives at risk. >> cover caught an apartment on fire put people's lives in danger. >> reporter: the red dots show the most recent suspicious fires. but the yellow dots show three arson fires that happened a week ago. investigators are not saying if they are all related. including this one in east san jose at a park near yerba buena and silver creek roads. whatever the case, that is six cars burned in the same half mile radius all overnight all within several hours of each other all unsolved. in san jose kiet do, kpix 5. >> cars were empty nobody was hurt in any of the fires. meanwhile, a pleasanton police officer arrested three identity thefts suspects.

6:17 pm
>> but what's causing this wind? because there was a very fast-moving cold front that came through overnight and a really tightly wrapped low pressure system that moved through now in the desert southwest. now the high pressure that's offshore is going to regain the atmosphere. it's almost like -- if you give it a liquid equivalent, it's almost like you open the floodgates on a dam and the water goes, yeah, now we got someplace to flow. it's the same thing with the air. the high pressure is going to build in. you had, you know, relative vacuum in the low pressure and that wind is just rushing in. especially down there at crissy field right now where there's a swell of five to seven feet. and we have also got gusts up to about 40 miles an hour. so there's rough waters out there and a five to seven foot swell. that's within the bay. that's like ocean going swells. there are gale warnings postedof shore. the numbers are in the lowest 50s. concord 48.
6:18 pm
oakland 50. livermore 50. winds right now in the reporting locations, the bright red shows the strongest gusts along the inner bay shoreline on the western edge and just touching sausalito and also parts of tiburon, but the strong winds are everywhere. 40-mile-an-hour winds at sfo. peak gust 50 miles an hour at mount hamilton. oakland hills 62 miles an hour atop oakland and at the airport we had a gust of 48 miles an hour. and at any will still be windy tonight. these are not going to be abating soon as we have temperatures forecast by 8:00 tonight to be in the mid-40s for much of the bay area. but you combine that with a 40- mile-an-hour wind and that drives the sensible temperature down into the upper 30s. so going to be cold tonight. it will be windy. there could easily be more problems with trees already weakened by the extensive rains that we had two weeks ago. out the door tomorrow morning plenty of sunshine, plenty of winds still through midday tomorrow. that's going to take a while again as that high pressure is
6:19 pm
slowly moving toward the west coast this. low pressure is heading out into the desert southwest and it's the battle between the the two that's creating the breeze. so windy and cold through midday tomorrow. winds abate tomorrow afternoon. we still have wind advisories for gusts up to 60 miles an hour for the north and east bay hills along the coast sow downed trees and power lines a distinct possibility. strong winds through 11:00. they ease midday tomorrow. tomorrow night, with the winds going away for the most part, not completely, but that's going to allow things to get very cold on new year's eve. so we'll have to bundle up if you are going out to watch fireworks or do things like that toward midnight. 33 overnight lows. colder wednesday night. 38 oakland, 41 in the city. forecast highs low 50s bay wide. in san francisco 54. 56 oakland. and 56 in santa rosa. 53 degrees at fairfield. the extended forecast is calling for things to begin to warm up as we head toward the
6:20 pm
weekend. but between now and then, it's going to be breezy. it's going to be cold. and as we get into monday and tuesday there's at least a sense that we might be able to, um, get maybe a little bit of a crack in the storm door opening by next week. we shall see. meantime, dry and cold. >> thank you. you can always get a heads up about the freeze warnings and other weather alerts like the winds, by downloading the kpix 5 weather app for iphone and android. a lot of investors are checking out the popular grocery delivery app instacart. according to a new regulatory filing it has raised $210 million and is now valued at nearly $2 billion. instacart dispatches workers to do your grocery shopping and deliver it to your door. the service is currently available in 15 u.s. cities including san francisco. stocks retreated from record highs ahead of the new year. the dow dropped 55 points to close below 18,000.
