halloween. a live look outside right now as we see in san jose, we have mostly clear skies and a nice, quiet start to the day. and low clouds and fog. this morning but we may see that returning as we go into the next couple of days and our temperatures are in the upper 40s for the north bay. while the south bay is in the mid-50s and the wind starts out light this morning coming in from the northwest. the winds picking up as we go through the day and that may create some choppy conditions for especially the coastal waters. so, it will have some rough surf. look at half moon bay. the speeds at 3:00 this afternoon. sustained at 25 miles an hour. so, breezy and still very comfortable, but our temperatures a little bit warmer than yesterday. so, let's go hour by hour in livermore. at 6:00, we're at 51 degrees and warming into the low 60s by 10:00 and lunchtime it's 73 degrees. still very comfortable by 2:00 it's 79 and low 80s. we'll hit that just briefly before those temperatures start to dip, once again. we do have another chance of rain in the forecast.

5:20 am
trend. 84 through town that is slowing a bit. over here on the peninsula, we're still waiting for that tow truck at san antonio. slowing, consider that blocked right now. no slowing for the south bay except for right there. just over to your left, if you can. that's safer for all. looking at the rest of your approach towards the bay bridge and cash lanes starting a stackp and disabld vehicle and slowing around hillcrest and move it towards pittsburg. a live look for san rafael on our camera. southbound no problems heading towards san pedro road. >> good news for being so early, thanks, mike. a blimp crashing in pennsylvania. the top secret mission it was a part of before it sent military jets scrambling. got a tip for nbc bay area investigative unit? call 1-8888-996-tips or e-mail

good thursday morning. thank you for joining us, i'm sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. let's get a look at the forecast for the weekend. >> it will be a beautiful day and cool start to the morning with mostly clear skies and then warming up this afternoon. as we take a live look all across the bay area now, we're seeing those temperatures in the 50s. still in the upper 40s in the north bay. so, grab a jacket before you step out the door. and it will be warming up into the low 80s in the north bay. mostly 70s across most of the bay area and sunshine and some breezy winds. so, what about this weekend? i'll update you on that coming up in a few minutes and mike's keeping you updated on the morning commute. >> we'll talk about the bay bridge where we have these cash lanes stacking up. we should see the metering lights turned on in the next two or three minutes. probably one or two minutes, in fact. that will fill in the fastrak
5:30 am

5:31 am
handed the custody deputy a piece of paper that he knew the location of a dead body. he referred him to san jose police who detained him while officers went to a apartment complex and discovered the body of a woman he dated. a retired judge who is heading up a blue ribbon panel to look into problems inside this jail. >> the first thing you do is you call someone who has the authority to ask that person questions, sit them down in an interview room. talk about it. identify the location so that if the victim were still alive, that person could perhaps be saved. >> sheriff laurie smith issued a statement saying castro wanted to "turn himself in." but later in the same statement said, "at no time did mr. castro
5:32 am
say he was responsible for the dead body or had any involvement in the crime." again, her statement added if the initial findings are true, then thatdy deputy failed to meet the expectations of the department. that deputy had since been reassigned. you might recall two months ago law enforcement arrested three other deputies for the murder of an inmate inside these walls. reporting live here in downtown san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. 5:32 on your thursday. women booked into alameda county jails will no longer have to take mandatory pregnancy tests. settled the lawsuit against the sheriff's office there challenging the pregnancy test requirement. civil rights groupeds sued last year on behalf of several women. one of them 69 years old who said the testing was humiliating and invasive. the tests will now by optional and only administered by medical staff. they're bold, armed and dangerous. robbers may be targeting east bay parents dropping their kids off at school. police say several masked men
