5:00 am
tomorrow morning. we are talking about overnight lows so we have a possibility of frost tomorrow morning of the. already out there right now, temperatures are in the 30s in santa rosa. not the freezing mark just yet but it's probably going to feel chilly out the door this morning up north. santa rosa at 38 degrees right now. 47 livermore. we are in the low 40s over san jose, san francisco 55, oakland 52 in concord at this hour. satellite perspective showing some primary reasons why. first of all we had a cold front pass through so we have cold air in place. secondly we have clear skies. not a lot of wind. all that leads to cooler temperatures for most out the door this morning. we don't have a lot of fog developing but we have a couple of stray showers along the coast and we could see a couple of more as we make our way throughout the late morning, early afternoon hours. so cool to start mostly clear. a few showers possible. mainly for the north bay along the coast and parts of the peninsula. and then rain chances really increasing this weekend. in fact, i do think there's a very good chance of widespread rain for this weekend.
5:01 am
in the meantime here's futurecast for today. notice those scattered showers passing through from about late morning through early afternoon. chance of showers again from santa rosa right along the coast crossing through the peninsula and then ending near santa cruz, morgan hill and down farther south but notice we do dry out. we see plenty of sunshine for the second half of the day. clear skies overnight tonight. that will lead to even cooler temperatures. in fact, i think it's going to be cold temperatures for some tomorrow especially in those wind sheltered valleys inland areas expect a cold start tomorrow temperature-wise today we will be on the cool side. here's a look at the next couple of days for your fisherman's wharf microclimate forecast. breezy and cool today, 61 degrees, chance of showers late morning. tomorrow though dry near seasonal norms so everyone will warm back up. 60s at the coast and 70s inland tomorrow. but today, staying on the cool side everywhere and, in fact, topping out in the low to mid- 60s for the warmest spots inland. 63 san jose. livermore, fairfield.
5:02 am
we could see some east bay locations in the mid-60s but for the most part 60s is the story. 58 pacifica. 61 san francisco. , redwood city. 63 -- 61 redwood city, 63 napa. the extended forecast is coming up. here's roqui with the commute. >> i think it's time to bring out the ugg boots. i don't know but. heading to the altamont pass here if you are wondering why traffic off 205 is looking at 5:02 it's because there's a crash on highway 5 in lathrop blocking lanes causing delays on 20 and to the altamont pass. -- on 205 and the altamont pass. it's a good time to get across the altamont pass. into north flynn road at 30 minutes but north tracy boulevard along 580 westbound to the altamont pass will take 20 minutes. dublin interchange altamont pass 580 westbound to 680 will take 15 minutes. also the nimitz freeway in both directions looking good. 238 northbound to the maze will
5:03 am
take you about 16 to 20 minutes or so. and the san mateo bridge from hayward, 15 minutes. a handful of apps may be fueling the rise of fatal car accidents. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in berkeley on the snapchat feature linked to dangerous driving. anne reporter: yeah. we used to worry about texting and driving but there are so many opportunities right now to be distracted by your cell phone. the traffic app waze rewards drivers for reporting accidents and slowdowns and snapchat actually records the vehicle's speed in real time. this 10- second cell phone video shows a driver accelerating to 82 miles per hour then 115 miles per hour according to snapchat. police say nine minutes after this clip was posted, the
5:04 am
driver lost control, crossed the median of a highway and hit a minivan nearly head on. three people were killed, a mother and two children, and three other people were injured in tampa, florida. >> what has really made this app stand out from the rest is that visual in the moment right now what am i doing. >> reporter: in a statement to cbs news, snapchat says, we actively discourage our community from using this feed filter while driving. but still, the number of highway deaths this year looks to be having the largest increase that we've seen in 50 years. in fact, the first half of 2016 it's up 10% over the same period last year. live in berkeley, anne makevoc, kpix 5. firefighters are on the scene of a duplex fire in san jose. they battled massive flames earlier this morning. we are told it is under control but crews are keeping an eye on
5:05 am
any hot spots. it started at 1 a.m. this morning on cypress avenue. 40 firefighters took an hour to control it. three people were inside at the time. they were able to make it out safely. but one of their dogs is missing. the cause is under investigation. president-elect donald trump's immigration plans prompted a petition asking saint mary's college to be a sanctuary for its students. college officials are expected to meet this morning to discuss the letter which was signed by students, alumni and faculty members. the letter expresses concerns about the potential of federal agents or moraga police going on campus to arrest students. san francisco's board of supervisors has approved tighter controls on short term home and room rentals like those on airbnb. if the ordinance is approved on a second vote and is not vetoed by the mayor, most of those rentals would be limited to 60 days a year. it would not affect the 1700 hosts who have already registered with san francisco. those hosts would still be able
5:06 am
to rent up to 90 days a year. and the rental days would remain unlimited if they stay on the site. the battle between the san francisco 49ers and the city of santa clara is getting nastier. the team is now firing back at one city leader. kpix 5's maria medina is live at levi's stadium with the latest. maria reporter: good morning, michelle. yeah, it is the mayor against an nfl team. now the 49ers are making a play off the field. last night during a city council meeting, the mayor and the 49ers exchanged some words. now we are going to rewind another a second. if you remember -- for a second. if you remember mayor lisa gillmor is looking into whether taxpayer dollars are being spent on the stadium to help for games and other events, in violation of measure j a voter- approved measure that says no taxpayer money can be used at levi's. the reason why an audit shows taxpayer money is being used on the 49ers.
5:07 am
but a statement was released saying, until recently, we have remained largely silent hoping our performance we speak for itself. the mayor fails to recognize that her unfounded accusations are harmful to her city and constituents. now, the 49ers went on to say in their statement that they would actually lose a lot of money if event planners believed that there was some instability in management. they also say that a lot of people here are afraid of losing their jobs. the latest threat from the mayor is that she wants tyke away management from the 49ers. live at levi's stadium, maria medina, kpix 5. president-elect donald trump continues to put together his administration with inauguration day a little more than two months away. the transition appeared to be in disarray yesterday after former republican congressman mike rodgers announced that he was quitting the team. he spoke to cnn's anderson cooper. >> i think there is some confusion going on about a chain of command coming out of new york. hopefully, they will get that settled pretty soon. i think they are going to need
5:08 am
to do it because as this clock ticks, all of these decisions become more important. >> late yesterday trump took to social media to ensure that the public -- his transition process is organized. the mayor of san jose says his city is not going to follow some of the future president's new policies. in a letter to the city, sam liccardo told residents that he is, quote, has their back. he says the city's police department will not take part in immigration enforcement and he is prepared to go to court to block any federal action that he considers unconstitutional. >> there's a lot of fear right now, a lot of uncertainty about what might happen in washington, dc or what might not. and i don't pretend to know exactly what the next president might decide to implement. but based on the campaign statements, there's been a lot of fear. >> the mayor added that the city has zero tolerance for hate crimes. these wild mushrooms are thriving in bay area parks thanks to rainy weather but
5:09 am
signs are cropping up to warn people, don't let your pets near them. this 5-year-old dog named koa ate one at a lafayette park and a day later lost his appetite. the owner took him to the vet and he learned what the death cap mushroom does to pets who don't know any better. >> they told me that his liver was already destroyed and they can try and save him but it didn't look so good. >> doctors say dog owners should also look through their yards for the toxic mushroom and if a pet eats one it's key to collect samples for testing. time now 5:09. big news in the tech world. snapchat announces it might be going public. how much the company is worth, next. >> and the mannequin challenge. the rules are simple. get a group together, strike a pose and stay still. more on the failed attempt by these cuties when we come back. >> and we are off to a clear
5:10 am
cool start today. we do have some changes on the way. warming temperatures, rain, that's all in your forecast coming up. >> and coming up we'll have a look at your bay area morning commute but why is the altamont pass so light right now? we'll tell you coming up.

5:16 am
down along the peninsula, likely going to see some in santa cruz, monterey county and then they will pass on through so for the most part the rest of the day sunshine and folks inland south bay east bay you likely will stay dry and mostly clear for most of the day although off to a cool start in those areas. you will see rain in the extended forecast, though. a wet weekend is likely thanks to another area low pressure moving in this weekend. futurecast shows we stay dry thursday and friday. plenty of sunshine for you there. but i'm timing out the weekend forecast. now you can make plans. here we are early saturday morning when we see rain up north. then it spreads south throughout the day saturday kind of unsettled into sunday. and maybe even some lingering showers on into monday, as well. today, however, again just a couple of stray showers for the morning hours and then we will be dry and we'll start to warm temperatures up over the next couple of days leading into that weekend rain event. so here are our high temperatures today definitely on the cool side. in fact the weather headline for today cool temperatures.

[ pause ] we're having some audio difficulties out there. but we are going to talk about traffic now. let's get a check. >> yeah. let check with roqui. how's it looking? >> all right. let's head out to highway 4 here between the antioch and pittsburg area. traffic moving slowly but it's not the worst it could be. you're moving at 25 miles per hour through antioch and then once you hit pittsburg, you're at 40 miles per hour. hillcrest avenue to highway 242 will take you up to 20 minutes right now. let's head on down to the altamont pass. now coming off 205, you're moving at 57 miles per hour. basically 60 miles per hour and this again is due to the crash on highway 5 that's delaying traffic on to 205 thus lightening up traffic on the altamont pass. north tracy boulevard to the altamont pass will just take you a quick 16 minutes. moving to the dublin interchange, if you are heading from the pass to the
5:34 am
interchange, altamont pass to 680 will take you 15 minutes. the golden gate bridge from san rafael, marin county to san francisco, that will be a quick 14 minutes. julie, i'll send it to you. >> thank you, roqui. we are off to a clear and cool start this morning. in fact, temperatures now at 40 degrees in santa rosa. we did dip down into the 30s for a short time. outside 53 in san francisco. 52 san jose. 55 right now oakland. and 47 in livermore. we are definitely running cooler than this time yesterday. we are running even cooler this time tomorrow morning. here's a check of the satellite perspective showing you why we have clear skies and a cool air mass in place behind the cold front that passed through. also a couple of stray showers on the satellite and i can time out how it will affect you in futurecast coming up in just a bit. in the meantime though, your weather headlines, we are off to a cool start, mostly clear, a few showers possible although just for the first half of the day through late morning, early afternoon. and then we'll start to dry out. rain chances return though for this weekend and it does look like it will be a wet weekend
5:35 am
-- easy for me to say. showers start late morning and taper off by early afternoon. so we are looking at the north bay right through san francisco right along the peninsula and the coast. most folks inland and south bay will likely stay dry and again everyone looks to be drying out by late morning, early afternoon, plenty of sunshine wednesday. and then we have a weak ridge building thursday and friday so temperatures warm once again ahead of our next chance of showers for this weekend. here's the next couple of days. our microcast forecast, here's fisherman's wharf, breezy and cool. temperatures in the low 60s today, again a slight chance of showers along the coast and for the city. just for those morning hours and late morning hours and then drying out. tomorrow, temperatures warm back to near seasonal for everyone and that means, in the low to mid-60s in san francisco for your thursday. another beautiful day on tap for friday. in the meantime here are your high temperatures for today. 58 in pacifica. 61 san francisco. 61 redwood city. and 63 in san jose.
5:36 am
mid-60s for the warmest spots inland so certainly cool. we do anticipate warmer temperatures tomorrow afternoon, details on your extended forecast coming up. opposition to an oil pipeline project is now going coast to coast. protestors want construction on the pipeline stopped so it can be rerouted to bypass the standing rock indian restation in north dakota. in washington, dc last night, protestors were joined by u.s. senator bernie sanders of vermont. >> we are not going to allow a pipeline to endanger the clean water that millions of people depend upon. [ applause and cheers ] >> protests were held in other cities yesterday including san francisco, columbus and st. paul. well, energy transfer partners the company behind the project says its pipeline will create more jobs and make oil cheaper. kenny, donald trump once again breaking with tradition. he ditched his press pool last night leaving trump tower to have dinner with his family after telling the press he
5:37 am
planned to stay in all night. after dinner, he took to social media to address concerns about his transition team. he tweeted, quote, very organized process taking place as i decide on cabinet and many other positions. i am the only one who knows who the finalists are. we have learned about new allegations in a class action suit by donald trump supporters. they stem from a summer rally that turned violent. 20 supporters were injured in the streets after hear the president-elect speak. now their attorney says sjpd stood by as the violence happened even though they initially noted in a press release that violence would not be tolerated. >> there were dozens of people assaulted in full view of the police with police officers telling the victims that they were not allowed to intervene, not allowed to make arrests, not allowed to stop them from being assaulted or shrugging and walking away. >> in a statement, the city says san jose police officers
5:38 am
acted professionally under difficult circumstances. so far the judge has dismissed part of the case. coming back to this story a rise in fatal car crashes could be because of apps. kpix 5 reporter anne makovec is live in berkeley with the snapchat feature that could be playing a part. anne reporter: yeah, looks like our highways are getting more dangerous than ever. we just saw the highest percentage increase in highway fatalities that we've seen in 50 years. the worst numbers since 2009. and being blamed in part on apps like snapchat. snapchat can record your vehicle's speed in real time. this 10-second cell phone video shows a driver accelerating first tow what snapchat says is 82 miles per hour -- to what snapchat says is 82 miles per hour then to 115 miles per hour. nine minutes after this clip was posted the driver lost control of the car, crossed the median of the highway, struck a machine any van nearly head on, killing himself, his passenger, a mother and two of her children. now, this is just one example,
5:39 am
this is in tampa, florida. but other accidents are also being blamed on the ability to brag about your speed. >> i think the speed filter was just another alluring feature that a lot of people like. so i think that it's appealing as a user to have. but appealing in every wrong way. >> reporter: that is a consumer safety blogger. now, in a statement, snapchat says, we actively discourage our community from using the speed filter while driving it. it's not just snapchat. the navigation app waze, for example, rewards drivers with points for reporting accidents and slowdowns things that many drivers are tempted to do while they are driving. live in berkeley, anne makevoc, kpix 5. twitter users may have an easier time weeding out mean comments thanks to new changes from the company. ill wagner of cbsmoneywatch.com has that story and more. good morning, jill. >> reporter: good morning, kenny. the post-election rally is going strong here in wall

tight and it's hard to afford to live here. they just have to pay that to be able to get workers to come and work. >> supporters say the higher minimum wage is necessary because san jose is one of the nation's most expensive cities to live in. some businesses oppose it saying the extra cost could force cutbacks. across the university of california system a freeze on tuition is set to expire soon. right now uc students pay a little more than $12,000 a year in tuition. but the system is considering raising tuition for california students 2.5% or about $280 a year. out of state students could see a 5% hike. the california state university system is also proposing a tuition increase of $270 a year. in san francisco, a couple expecting a child decides to take some scenic photos at baker beach. but then something they never expected pops up in the background. a naked man soaking up the waves. but while the photo shoot became a little less -- [ laughter ]
