bay you'll have a little bit of fog. perhaps on highway 1. and over the north bay from highway 1, stretches all the way to the napa valley. and visibility from quarter mile to half mile. santa rosa reporting a little bit more than a mile. but the darker shade of gray indicates where it's really thick. you'll find it on highway 101, petaluma to novato. it could be really thick as well. be careful. it definitely could impact the drive. highway12, highway 37. and over to areas of vallejo. temperature-wise, 33 degrees in santa rosa and 36 in napa. and 43 in redwood city. into the afternoon, partly cloudy and relatively mild, upper 50s to low 60s. i'll check in on the afternoon highs and take a look at the extended forecast including the

gunpoint and shot a man. all of this happening at 5:30 on friday afternoon. police are not releasing a lot of details about the incident. a group of men were held up at gunpoint inside the pawnshop. and one of them -- a 77-year- old man -- was shot. the robbers shot the victim multiple times in the hands, feet, and backside. and they say that the robbers demanded the men in the store open up a jewelry display case and began fires. >> down on the floor because he tried to take out the rings, something he tried to show them but didn't get a chance. >> reporter: the 77-year-old man was taken to an area hospital with what we're hearing are life-threatening conditions. the two other men in the pawnshop were not injured. no word on what the robbers
managed to get away with. all four of them ran from the scene and one ducked into a nearby clothing store, changing his clothes to alter his appearance. and police found the weapon and at this point they are looking for the robbers. back to you. >> thank you, christian, for the update. tougher gun restrictions are coming to california to more than 6 million gun owners. new gun regulations begin january 1st and range from updated travel restrictions to new registration rules. it will be illegal to import a firearm purchased from another state and bring it to california. also, any ammunition that was purchased online will have to be shipped to a licensed vendor. this will likely mean more fees for gun owners. >> it's going to significantly increase the cost of ammunition for folks here in the state of
california. in particular when you're -- it's already more difficult to get access to ammunition because of the requirements that we're placing on nonlead ammo and things along those lines. >> assault rifles can no longer be purchased after the new year. owners will be required to register with the state by july of next year. the state and national gun lobby are challenging several of the new laws in court. time is 5:35 and in less than a week if you're age 21 or older, you'll be able to legally buy recreational marijuana in california. cities are scrambling to put rules in place. tara moriarty has the story. >> reporter: san francisco cannabis clubs were hoping to ring in the new year with legal

act quickly with a set of laws. would there be a green rush? would dispensaries start cropping up everywhere? >> there's not a free for all. basically, the way that the law works, 600 feet from schools, 600 feet from one another so there isn't clustering. >> reporter: state law established the 600-foot for daycares and youth centers too. >> there are so many ways to skin this cat. what you really need is a map of san francisco. and say okay, what does 600 feet look like? >> that translated to two city blocks. discussions about a thousand feet were quashed. the biggest stall on how to nail down the laws came when the idea of an equity program
was introduced. it was quickly aprogress battlinged but the details needed to be ironed out. >> we want people to hire folks locally, people who live in san francisco. we want to make sure that based on our equity guidelines that they have access to this new industry in a productive way. >> reporter: that includes those prosecuted on marijuana offenses in the past. >> how are you? >> looking for make a gram. >> the only supervisor to vote against the city regulations -- who oversees district 11. >> we wanted the appropriate number for the district and i think sunset wanted the same thing and twin peaks wanted the same thing. and ultimately, that didn't happen. >> reporter: the late mayor ed lee signed the legislation into law december 6th and it becomes effective 30 days later.
meanwhile-- >> no marijuana, no marijuana! >> some members of the asian community continue to fight to keep marijuana out of their neighborhoods. >> that one is $28, a little less expensive. >> one thing that is unclear is how much it will cost. >> excise tax, cultivation tax, sales tax. >> that's a minimum of 23% plus an additional tax being ironed out. dispensary owners say it will trickle down to the consumer, forcing the cost of marijuana up. >> they will go down over time. >> legal cannabis consumption could triple with annual sales at $240 million. it will be a green 2018. union city police are asking for help in finding a missing man. police say 35-year-old eric akin walked away from a house
on smith street early yesterday morning. this was after getting into an argument. and according to police, he does not live at the home. and is not familiar with union city. he has difficulty thinking and is clinically depressed. there's a photo of him. he's a white male, 6 feet tall, short, wavy, dark brown hair, and last seen wearing a gray hoodie with paint on it. if you see him you are asked to call authorities. >> the president of bishop -- the private catholic school called phelps a friend, a colleague, a mentor and leader. he had two heart attacks during bypass surgery. he also worked at saint

our time is 5:43. and getting a parking placard may get harder as a new state law takes effect. it's part of the crackdown on the abuse of disabled parking placards. as many as 35,000 placards being used by drivers were issued to people who are now dead. under the new law. applicants have to provide proof of name and date of birth. the number of replacement placards will go down to just four, not unlimited as it has been. the placard holders will have to renew every six years under the new law. now that all the holiday gifts have been unwrapped a lot of people are taking them back to stores. ann reuben tells us while some people drop off returns at the mall, many others will return
them by mail. >> the season of giving has ended and the time to return has gun. and that no longer has to mean long lines at the mall. he used to dread the day after christmas. >> you'd have the line going out the door. and nowadays. half the amount of people and you take a box and drop it off at the post office and you're done. just go back home. >> things have changed. thousands of ill chosen gifts or ill fitting themes are being shipped back. >> this is one dose of convenience that a lot of people can't do without. >> reporter: it means a boost in business for places like the ups store. all the returns will keep them busy through january. >> the number of dropoffs has gone up through the roof. if the recipient doesn't like the items, we ship it back for
them. >> reporter: the u.s. postal service handles 37% of the e- commerce market, accounting for 850 million packages this holiday season. >> the internet has changed everything. and we've seen a significant double digit increase for the last three or four years. >> reporter: in fact, they say they are already making adjustments to help them handle more packages like bigger trucks down the road. they want to make it as easy as possible to return an ugly sweater. all the extra boxes mean extra recycling too. and some places like the ups store will take them back and repurpose them for you. ann reuben. >> flattening boxes at my house. 5:46 is the time for you. if you ever to head out and about. some people are heading back to work. and we're covering traffic for

napa valley. highway37 towards vallejo. highway1, 29. we're watching it and will continue to watch it in the coming hours. probably not going away completely. at least not for now. here's a look at the ridge of high pressure. we remain high and dry. and you can see the clockwise motor vehicles and how it pushes the storm track to the north of us. we are looking at the first chance of rain coming on new year's eve. and boy, do we need it. santa rosa is 51% of average. and san francisco is 41%. and oakland is 48%. and san jose just 34% of average for this time of year. temperatures outside right now. a cold start for the inner east bay. 34 in livermore. and 34 for santa rosa. some areas just above freeze, and then you have the fog in and around the bay. and in the south bay, 39 san
