6:02 am
right now we are waiting on the system. the front is still offshore. it has three or four hours to go. most of the morning commute looks good unless you are up north. for us it's jesus a lot of cloud cover. if there is any rain, it's very light. the front is holding together. enhancing on the backside. once it does arrive, it will give us pretty good ride. 50s and 60s. the breeze is picking up here. here it is east, southeast 12 and 10 at hayward. it will ramp up 20-25. we will have rain in the morning until 2:00 in the afternoon. and then tonight the cold pool swings in. i just want to show you on the timeline. here we go at 10:00 and then there you two at noon. that is heavy rain. that is heavy rain. we will see a little bit of a break after 4:00 until the next part of the system comes in. it looks like it wants to swing in toward santa cruz mown
6:03 am
tapes. cloudy and rain later. cooler for all today. winds out of the south and a lot of 60s. here is my good friend sal castaneda. >> reporter: you have been mentioning the rain. people here are aware of it and it seems for the most part committeely undaunted. they are all it's going to rain, so what. i've got my rain gear. we are here for the giants. that is pretty much from a man to a woman what we have been saying here. everybody is just ready for it. it's a celebration. people are already here. some people got here as early as midnight and walked up and got their spot. obviously here at civic center plaza is where they will do the culmination of the world series victory celebration. so we are going to talk about getting here and also some of the tips that we have for you if you want to come out. let's go out and take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. we will start off there. traffic is now already crowded coming into san francisco. it's not too bad. there will be a little bit of a
6:04 am
wait there at the toll plaza. once you get on to the bridge it does look good into the city. you heard steve say he's not expecting the weather to be a major factor for the morning commute. but later on, all bets are off. 237 westbound getting into the valley not too bad. the traffic looks pretty good as you drive through. and there have been no major delays on 237, 101 or 85. i want to go to a map of the north bay because southbound 101 at petaluma boulevard south you can see it's already getting slow. there was some sort of debris causing flat tires on southbound 101 right near petaluma boulevard south. watch out for police activity there. people are going to be slowing you down there. one of the things i want to mention also is that we encourage you if you are coming out to san francisco today to take public transportation. in fact, we have team coverage of all the aspects of today's plaid. tara will be talking about public transit and she has some things about bart. but first we will go to alex
6:05 am
savidge who is already on market street and alex, it's not surprising, there are people getting their spot for today's parade. >> sal, good morning to you. giants fans are veterans when it comes to these parades. i think people have learned a lot. there is a lot of experience coming into play. they have learned from years past, you have to show up early to get a good spot. they came in from sacramento. you can imagine how early they got up to get here. the chairs are out. folks are ready to go. the parade route will fill in fast. some giants fans got here around 4:00 this morning to set up chairs and take out a section of sidewalken even with rain in the forecast, a million or so people are expected to be on hand for the celebration today. and of course preparing for a parade is nothing new for this city. workers have been busy building floats and transforming civic center plaza. of course police they will also
6:06 am
be out in force along the route. the chief says there will be 20% more officers on patrol to make sure fans behave themselves. and this morning we caught up with a crew from south city decked out in giants gear. they are looking for a spot right next to the confetti machine. >> ain't to be confettid out. oh yes. i can't wait. it will be a wonderful party. >> that is something else we are running into this morning. giants fans tell me they need to remain anonymous. they called in sick to work today and they don't want to go on tv and get busted by the boss. but while of course we will likely see a lot of grown ups playing hook key today. the san francisco school district they are very serious about making sure that kids all show up to class today. they sent out a tweet urging students not to sky school and attend -- skip school and attend the parade. they have seen that in years
6:07 am

6:09 am
will be running until 2:00 this morning. bart police will have extra patrols and about 100 extra bart employees will be stationed throughout the system to help with crowd control. >> things like having tables set up at the end of the line stations to sell tickets. making sure we have enough staff in place to help get people through the turnstiles so there is not really long lines. make sure they get on escalators. those are the things we have learned. >> reporter: san francisco based area is expanding service from the vallejo alameda street to the jack london square terminal. they are encouraging everybody to take mass transit. it will be crazy down here if you ever came by for the last few parades. driving definitely not a good idea. live from san francisco i'm tara moriarty ktvu channel 2 news. >> okay tara, thank you. once again the parade starts at noon at stewart and market streets. and then it goes up market, takes the turn to city hall. ktvu cameras are all along the parade route. you can watch the parade right

6:12 am
6:13 am
6:14 am
three people are recovering from stab wounds in san jose. it happened late yesterday afternoon in the home whinney place way. police say one of the clients wept on a violent rampage and may have been under the influence of drugs. the three victims are expected to survive. after 48 days on the run one of america's most wanted fugitives is behind bars. survivalist eric frein surrendered inside an everyonety hanger in northeast pennsylvania. about 30 miles from where he was accused of ambushing two
6:15 am
state troopers. one trooper died, the other injured. his capture ends weeks of weeks -- >> i can't explain what i'm feeling. >> we were afraid to go outside. we were afraid to do anything. and so this is amazing. we are waiting for this day. >> free was take -- frein was taken into custody and held with handcuffs that belonged to the trooper he was accused of killing. prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty. time is 6:15. more arrests are possible in connection with that video we slowed you that shows dozens of motorcyclists performing stunts and taunting a chp officer on a bay area freeway. they say he's the one that filmed a group of about 50
6:16 am
motorcyclists here on interstate 680 near milpitas earlier this month. those cyclists are seen doing wheelies and other dangerous stunts. at one point a highway patrol officer here tried to pull them over but he was ignored. a daredevil is recovering after being rescued when a pair shoot attempt took a turn for the worse. the man climbed up the television tower to jump off but he got stuck. he was left hanging 125 feet in the air and it took firefighters about two hours to bring them down to safety. he was taken to the hospital where he was checked out. >> he was lucky. our time is 6:16. i don't know if we will be lucky with our weather today. steve has our forecast. it's already raining in some areas. >> to the north. we might see a little break for the early trick or treaters. it will be cooler, breezy. the front should have gone through by 3:00, 4:00. so by tonight, okay but then
6:17 am
more rain starts to move back in. i think after 9:00 and 10:00 cold pool of air moves in. so we have a rainy system. we also have a colder system. the first part is on the mild side. so i will pencil in santa cruz mown tapes. breeze is picking up. it's 18 miles an hour now. not that windy but it will be a little blustery at times. they will have to wait awhile to get the system up to the mountains. we have a front moving in and development taking place at the bottom of the system. that is the one that will really give us pretty good rain rates and possibility of thundershowers. kind of waiting. there is is rain that is off the coast. there is pretty good rain on the north coast. it looks like rain has started ukiah. fort bragg has had over .75 inches of rain. not much over us right now.
6:18 am
cloudy skies. the front continues to hold. it's slowing down slightly but it's still on its way. 50s and 60s very mild due to the cloud cover and that southerly breeze that is picking up. easterly at fairfield. it's turning south, to southeast for almost everybody. especially on the peninsula and the south bay. this holds a lot of rain. and it looks like a piece of that will break off and move in tonight. again it's kind of a broad brush once you get that cold in here. thundershowers could pop up. the storm prediction center has painted us all the way to saturday. rain moves in. it's cloudy for most. heaviest to the south. but thunderstorms friday afternoon into saturday. the timeline shows that 10:00 the rain has begun up in the north day. it's orange for the parade. >> yes, that is right. >> and it's orange because it's heavy. when you start to see orange and red that is moderate to heavy amounts. and then we will see a front go through. we will get a break 6:00, 8:00 there will be some rain in the
6:19 am
area. but then we will wait for the next piece to come in. that will have the cool air. a lot of that looks like it's heading toward the coastline. some of the heaviest rain usually to the north bay might be a little different this time. more toward the san francisco south. i think everybody is in on pretty decent totals here. the winter storm warning at 5:00 today. snowfall real tricky. i think above 7,000 feet there could be some pretty good totals here. by the time we get to saturday night. cloudy with rain. cloudy you. cool for all. 60s on your temps. we had 80s there for a couple of days. you will feel it saturday into sunday. set your clocks back. >> all right and just to reiterate, you say people have been saying it's okay, i can hand a little bit of rain. it will be a lot of rain. they will get pretty wet. >> i would think so.
6:20 am
it looks pretty good to me. >> heed the warning. bring the umbrella. we want to go back out to sal who is covering traffic. sal, i hope you have your rain gear ready. >> i do have it ready and i took extra care. i have rain gear that is blue but today i chose not to. i ended up finding a raincoat that is black. because you know. it seemed appropriate. there are a lot of security here. we were standing here from very early on and this place is just flooded with security people. already several hundred people have showed up here at civic center plaza. they are getting ready for celebration. there probably won't be until 2:00. because as you know the parade gets started down at justin hermanen plaza and makes its way here. some people will be here for a
6:21 am
long, long time. they will see people like us doing our thing but that is about all. i hope you are all entertaining -- i hope i'm entertaining enough for you all. bart is running extended service. let's go to highway 24 westbound, that traffic is moderately heavy. there are not any major problems here. chp is not reporting any issues throughout. when you go to the bay bridge toll plaza, you can see there is a crowd there. there is a little bit of waiting to do. just a little lighter than usual. as we go to the maps, i want to show you the livermore valley. it's slightly unusual that 580 is not jam packed. 580 is not all that bad. but 680 however you can see the road sensors are a little bit red heading down to the sunol grade and fremont. once again if you are coming to san francisco bart, muni, and

we are live in san francisco. there is city hall. we are getting ready for today's giant situation. we'll have live team coverage for you this morning. it is already busy out there buzzing at 6:31. we will check in with sal castaneda. he is doing traffic out there. alex savidge is out there as well talking to folks. they will be here in a couple minutes. friday, october 31st i'm dave clark. good morning, i'm pam cook. >> a couple reports of pouring. >> and it's going to pour in
6:32 am
san francisco. >> i think so at noon. we just need to know. >> i'm wearing blue for rain. i'm wearing blue for rain. >> i'm not giving you a hard time. >> i wore orange four times this week. i'm out of orange. speaking of orange we have an halloween forecast. it looks good for you for you late night trick or treaters. i think we will get a little bit of break around sunset. the system is on the way. it is holding together. there are two pieces here. some really good rain on the north coast. when things start to light up a little bit. ukiah right there. over to fort bragg. very heavy. just beginning to inch south. a little bit of rain toward santa rosa. the front is still there. it's slowing down ever so slowly. the rain is on its way. 50s and 60s on your temps. the mild breeze is beginning to creep up as well. i think about 20-25.
6:33 am
most of the morning commute will be all right but there will be rain. cooler for all. the breeze is picking up as well. all in advance of this front with a lot of 60s. he is dry out there right now, but he may not be at parade tile. sal, i heard you had the black rain jacket. >> i do. people are very sensitive. >> you're telling me. [ laughter ] >> you know how it is; right? very sensitive to color. that is why i've been wearing the same two ties for the last week. and it worked. you know. the tie that i wore on the day that they won the world series is going to be my go to for at least one more day. but i digress. i want to tell you something about bart. bart has a major delay out of daly city because of an equipment problem. even though there is a major delay, bart has extra trains today. just running in the system. just between trains. they have so many trains out there i don't think you will
6:34 am
notice major delays because they are trying to get everyone in and everyone out. they have done this a couple of times before and they are ready. some of the major stations have actually people selling tickets at the table so you don't have to go to the machines. but there is a major delay reported now out of daly city coming into san francisco on bart. we will keep an eye on it for you. let's go out and take a look at what we have now with the morning commute. you can see the traffic is finally getting slow. it took awhile but it is getting slow. if you are coming into san francisco, we do not recommend bringing the cars. simply no place to park. if you have to come in, just avoid the area of civic center and market street. that is where the activity is. san mateo bridge doesn't look that bad. it's about a 10-15 minute delay in the area. if we go to the south bay maps, the traffic has been okay but on northbound 17 it's slower than usual because of that earlier accident at redwood
6:35 am
estates. that crash is clear but there is still a lot of slow traffic coming down. the rest of the freeways are just moderate and again if you are getting here early, save your spot, it's not exactly an original idea. a lot of people are already here at civic center plaza and a lot of people are already lining up on market street. let's go to alex savidge who has been watching people show up in their giants gear. alex. >> reporter: sal, good morning to you. they are all here. the excitement is building. giants fans starting to fill in along the parade route. they are coming from all around the bay area. and you know what, all around northern california for that matter. this crew right here you came in from tulloch and this young man who are you waiting to see this morning? who is your favorite player? >> pablo sandoval. >> reporter: you've got it. panda. and you are not going to make it to school but you did all of your home work right? >> yes. >> reporter: giants fans coming in from all over the place. the barricades have gone up and
6:36 am
things will start filling up fast. if you want a spot along the parade route you have to get here soon. giants fans some got here at 4:00 this morning. that is how early we saw them getting here to set up chairs and steak out a section of sidewalk. even though there is rain in the forecast, a million or so people are expected to be on hand for this celebration and preparing for this parade is nothing new for the city, san francisco police they have a whole ran in place to monitor the crowd. the chief says they will have 20% more officers on hand to make sure fans behave themselves. and some of the folks that got here early say they just had to be here and wanted to make sure they had good view. >> it will be a title wave of people coming through the streets. it's going to be phenomenal. it will billion miraculous event. >> reporter: while most giants
6:37 am
fan did want to talk to us and be on camera, there are a few avoiding the camera. i think it may be a case of unites fever. a lot of folks told me they called in sick to work today. the bosses don't know and they don't want to get busted. a lot of people skipping out on work and some folks skipping out on school too. but like that young man he got all of his home work done. so he is good to go. things are filling in. we are less than six hours away from the start of the parade. you can see here along market, the chairs are all set up. the spots are limited at this point. if you want to get a good view, you will want to get here soon. we will keep an eye on things. for now we are live in san francisco alex savidge ktvu channel 2 news. >> we are waving at them too. you set the stage. thank you, alex. again the parade starts at noon at stewart and market streets. look at the route. it goes up market and takes a turn to city hall.

6:39 am
a group of young men were walking in fountain alley between first and second street and an argument broke out among them. one man took out a gun and started shooting be the victim was hit around four times. the victim returned fire at least once. the man hit, walked away injured with two other men and collapsed on second street. he was rushed to regional medical center family members arrived on scene in the last hour and they had just come from the hospital. >> we don't know the reason why. we do know that there was some friends with him. that apparently witnessed this. so i'm pretty sure we will get some answers. >> reporter: homicide detectives are interviewing witnesses back at the police department so they can get a good suspect description. at this point police to not know what this argument was about or if this was gang
