everything is in the red and in the poor category. we have very poor around the central bay area right now. one of the reasons for this poor air quality is the light surface winds. you can see the wind is calm in most regions, so we need a stronger wind to blow that pollution out of here. air quality will remain poor, especially tomorrow. very unhelpful in most ridges of the bay area and poor through the weekend, as well. dan and ama? >> spencer, thank you so much. and this is not the worst air we've experienced, but it is very close. a bay area air quality management recorded the worst last year. october of 2017, the air meas e measured 246 in san francisco, today, 244. >> let's go live to laura anthony. she's in paradise once again, that community obliterated by this fire. laura?

smoky, hazy air through tuesday. only slight improvement is likely on saturday, and a chance of rain next thursday, thanksgiving day and that should bring us cleaner air and relief. but right now, looking at a forecast for unhelpful or poor air quality for most of the bay area tomorrow. and poor air quality on saturday and sunday. you know how bad things are when poor is an upgrade. that will be a modest improvement over tomorrow. overnight, look for low temperatures dropping into the mid 30s. upper 30s in the inland east bay. and tomorrow, another hazy day with very poor air quality. highs will range from low 60s at the coast to upper 60s around the bay, and most inland locations highs in the upper 60s, as well. a few locations top out at 70 or above. let's talk about that rain we expect next thursday. starting thursday morning, the first wave of rain moves through
thursday into friday, producing snow over the se yarera. and so we're hoping -- expecting maybe an inch of measurable rain from those two waves here in the bay area. here's the accuweather seven-day forecast. not much change in the temperature. relatively mild through sunday. and then it cools down a little early next week. still dry as of next wednesday. but hoping for rain and expecting it based on the current models of thursday next week. >> thank you, spencer. the recent wildfires may cause a financial meltdown for

this is over a 24-hour period. you can see the purple area there in the central valley, obviously the greatest concentration smoke is closest to the fire, which is the source of the smoke. but look at what happens over the next 24 hours, bringing us up to light now. see the darker colors that move into the bay area? that indicates the intensity of the smoke, increasing by the concentration, increasing here in the bay area, reducing our air quality, making it very poor. dan and ama? >> thank you, spencer. check air quality levels on our "abc7 news" app. it's how we'll let you know when they start to improve. >> "abc7 news" is committed to building a better bay area, which means we're spending more time looking at issues that affect our quality of life here and trying to find solutions. >> we know traffic congestion is a huge problem and one of the worst commutes is the bay bridge

were added in 1974 to keep the bay bridge from being gridlocked. since then, the bay area has added 2.3 million people but only one change to the lights. that was a software update in 1980. >> the metering lights are determined by the flow of traffic and the total number of crs on the highway accessing the highway. once that determination has been made, they turn the rights on. >> reporter: two years ago, we took you inside the management center in oakland where that happens. when traffic increases on the bay bridge, they turn on the light s manually. >> all we do is punch in the metering rate and hit the send button and the lights will start cycling. >> reporter: that's right. it's pretty low tech. the mtc was supposed to start work on a high tech metering system last year. >> we lost a year. >> reporter: the $7 million upgrade will take advantage of the latest smart metering technology and move traffic more
smoothly on the bay bridge. >> some of the technology is already in place. sensors embedded in on ramps talk to sensors on the highway and together, they keep traffic moving. signs above the highway turn on to warn drivers of hazards ahead and direct them around collisions. >> so far, we have activated it 712 times. >> reporter: those signs have been in place since 2016. >> caltrans is continuing to fine tune the system, so the system is growing with traffic. it's not going to eliminate congestion but it is helping us better judge what's happening on the roadways. >> reporter: combined with the new metering light system, the k3450u9 is expected to move a little smoother. but don't expect the cash lanes to go away any time soon. >> it's not a matter if we go to all electronic toll sclcollecti but a matter of win. it won't happen at the bay bridge until we have a new
lighting system in place. >> reporter: expect those new metering lights to be fully operational by may of 2020. alexa smith, "abc7 news." >> well, from traffic to transit, with the increase in commuters using b.a.r.t. to get across the bay and others renewed focus on a second transbay crossing. check out this picture of a train on an imaginary lower deck of the golden gate bridge. today, "abc7 news" was in oakland, as the b.a.r.t. board of directors discussed making something like this a reality. >> we're taking the beginning steps of making a second rail crossing a priority. is the a new crossing could be used by amtrak, as well as b.a.r.t., meaning one train could get you from san francisco to sacramento. b.a.r.t. believes it's too soon to say whether the cross willing be a tube and it will take about a decade before construction could even begin. and in the short term, b.a.r.t.
hope tos to award a feasibility study. we want you to be part of this conversation. how can we work on building a better bay area and making it easier to get where we want to go? share your ideas by adding the #betterbayarea on social media. >> "abc7 news" and disney are committed to helping our food banks. >> it will help us buy and distribute thousands of pounds, in fact, truckloads of produce into the community. we're extremely grateful. >> the food bank executive director says each dollar goes further to buy discounted food. each dollar donated to the food bank covered what would normally be $7 worth of food. if you want to help out, donate

we continue to keep a list of bay area schools that are closed tomorrow because of air quality at the bottom of your screen there. >> and even before the smoke forced schools to cancel classes, parents were strugging to find ways to keep children active without exposing them to the air. >> eric thomas visited an indoor playground in berkeley. >> reporter: today, there was no line outside this kid's jim in berkeley. but there was still a steady stream of parents and kids who have been trapped in their home by the smoke. >> it's very smoky outside. it's not smoky in here, so it's nice. >> reporter: the fuiltered air ensured they could use their lungs to the fullest without bringing in the smoke.
that's why jonathan brought his daughter here. >> we're trying to find a place other than home with good air to play around in. >> reporter: when they're bouncing around here, they're not bouncing off the walls at home. they charge $15 a day for the toddlers, and $12 for siblings, and business has been booming. >> the busy days would be like 300 kids and a normal day is 100 kids. the last few days, we're averaging about 750 kids, not including their parents. >> reporter: this is the normal refuge for a parent with a restless kid at home, but with the smoke, many are choosing to stay indoors. ieta's kids were just among a handful we saw here. >> we can't stay long. >> reporter: otherwise, their health can suffer. >> he's been coughing a little bit more than usual. it makes me nervous.
>> reporter: parents whose are hoping for rain or another way to clear the air to get back outside. eric thomas, "abc7 news." >> wow, some 700 kids. now, this series of pictures taken by a nasa satellite shows why our air quality is so bad. since the day the fire started one week ago, the smoke plume has covered the bay area. some days look worse than others, but we have yet to see clear skies. we have been under a continuous spare the air alert since november 8th. and it's not set to expire until tuesday, the 20th. and that's for now. >> yeah. i've never seen it linger like this. spencer is back with an update on our air quality. and the forecast for the weekend. >> and they told a story. here's another way of telling the story. i'll show you this large and persistent high pressure system
that's been the dominant feature in our weather pattern. producing drier than average conditions and the clockwise circulation around the center of high pressure has been steering the smoke from those fires down through the central valley through the bay area and out to sea and had a capping effect, meaning that the high pressure is compressing te air at the surface and trapping the smoke at the surface. the smoke has not been able to blow out of here and that's why a build up of pollutants has continued. here's a look at a color coded graphic that will show you how poor the air quality is. those dark purples represent hazardous air quality that. 's what we have in vish chulvirl parts of the bay area. y right we have hazardous conditions, that will persist through tomorrow as you look at the air quality forecast.
it's going to be poor in the north bay and unhelpful in every other region. on saturday, sunday, and monday, poor air quality is expected across the bay area. sare the air alert will continue from monday into tuesday. inland, low to mid 40s on the bay and the coast. highs ranging to upper 60s around the bay and 70 inland. and more's the accuweather seven-day forecast. very little change in the weather pattern except maybe a few extra clouds through next tuesday. it does get cooler next wednesday and perhaps the wind picks up, because rain is expected to move in on thursday. looks like we may get two or three days of wet weather out of that system. so rainfall and stronger wind will certainly improve the air quality. >> wouldn't that be nice. >> let's turn our attention to sports and the warriors tonight. >> a lot going on there. >> draymond green explains his
dispute with kevin durant. are they all good now? first test, a date with the rockets. a repeat of pai'm open to that.medicare? lower premiums? extra benefits? it's open enrollment. time to open the laptop... ...and compare medicare health plans. why? because plans change, so can your health needs. so, be open-minded. look at everything - like prescription drug plans... oh, and medicare advantage plans from private insurers. use the tools at medicare.gov
the blowup with durant. he admitted his feetings get the best of him, and the team held a meeting this morning. >> i read a lot about, is this run over, did i ruin it? you know, at the end of the day, as i said before, whatever kevin decide to do, whatever klay decide to do, whatever who decides to do, we've had great years together and i support everybody whole heartedly 100%. as a man, as a human being, you have a right to do what you want to do with your life. so i'll never question that. but what you must know is nobody in this organization, from a player, you know, not myself, not kevin, not anybody else, is going to beat us. >> so much of this is about kd's free agency. now to the game, warriors and
