transition. we're constantly updating our twitter feed and website, 5:05 on friday. many questions left unanswered after a man is found dead in the back of a car in the driveway of a san jose home. this morning san jose police are being tight lipid about what they're called a homicide. police were called to turnhouse lane in the evergreen neighborhood about 1:00 yesterday afternoon. investigators didn't say if they arrested anyone. they did reassure us there is no public safety risk. no word yet on how the victim died. a cross country manhunt for an alleged fugitive ended in the bay area. the u.s. marshals shot a man while serving an arrest warrant. for hours investigators poured over the seen close to the scene in lake ridge park in hayward. the suspect was wanted in louisiana for weapons and drug-related charges. the suspect was in a car outside a home. that's when u.s. marshals said

5:09 am
east bay, tri-valley and the south bay. in santa rosa it is 37 degrees right now. into this afternoon it will be beautiful, sunny, up to 65 degrees in oakland, 66 in napa and morgan hill will be up to 68 degre degrees. after a nice mild day with sunshine, we see clouds roll in later tonight and rain starting in the north bay. looks like it could be a foggy weekend. heading over to mike now, there is something on the roadway in oakland. >> something that's not supposed to be on the roadway in oakland. that's the key. we're looking at the rest of the roads and a smooth easy drive. we'll talk about speeds in a second. looking over here, your commute direction around telegraph avenue off-ramp. reports of a ladder in your left two lanes. that will be an issue off highway 13 and over toward the maze itself. no slowing shows up. here is the south bay, no

5:14 am
ramona expressway and there are 60 firefighters and 18 engines on the scene of that fire. you see the efforts under way right now to pour water and retardant on the top of the flames to contain it. this has been going on for about two hours, starting at 2:45 this morning near the west ramona expressway. we are told that there's obviously fuel for the fire from the wooden pallets but there was an explosion from poe pane inside the yard. that's the latest from knbc as we continue to follow that situation. 5:14 right now. caltrain's effort to go green is ramping up. that means there may be some inconveniences for people living nearby. caltrain is launching preliminary work on its electrification conversion plan. actual construction won't begin until next year. it will take at least three years to complete. between now and february crews will be testing soils and cables along the tracks primarily during the overnight hours. a followup, pg&e lost the
5:15 am
bid to have the judge toss its criminal convictions tied to shoddy record keeping. in august jurors found pg&e guilty on six criminal counts, including obstruction of justice tied to the deadly san bruno explosion. yesterday the judge denied the request to throw out all six verdicts. pg&e is facing a maximum $3 million penalty after prosecutors requested much larger fines be dismissed. happening later today, a federal judge is going to consider president-elect donald trump's request to delay a trial involving his now defunct trump university until after inauguration in a january. in a court filing trump's attorney says he needs to focus all his energy and efforts on transitions into the white house. that motion is asking trump be allowed to give a video testimonial instead of appearing in court on november 28th. 2010 lawsuit against trump university accuses the
5:16 am
president-elect of defrauding and misleading students with false promises. might apple move some of its iphone manufacturing to the united states? >> scott mcgrew, donald trump says he'll slap a tariff on apple if they don't do that. >> the question would be what's more expensive, paying the tariff if trump follows through or paying a much more expensive american worker. the japanese newspaper nikkei says apple asked manufacturers what would it take to move iphone manufacturing to america? the estimation is the cost of making a phone would double. this is all theoretical. understand what apple is asking. they're asking fox con to absorb the cost. make the phone in america, but charge us the same price so we can charge the consumer the same price. that leaves the decision to fox con which can easily say no. one of the other things to prevent trump from bringing jobs back to america, robots.
5:17 am
lowe's showing off robots in san jose and across the bay area. you may have seen these in orchard supply. lowe's owns orchard supply. president-elect proudly tweeting he stopped ford from moving a plant to mexico? did he really? we'll take a closer look. we have to turn right now to landon dowdy live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning, landon. >> happy friday to you. wall street could end on a down note. futures are relatively flat. stocks closing slightly higher yesterday with the dow shy of a new record high following strong economic data and comments from fed chair janet yellen. she told congress an interest rate hike could come, quote, relatively soon. most expect the rates to hike next month. the dow rising 35 to 18,903. the nasdaq up nine to 5,333. >> sam and laura, i got an e-mail from a catalog company out of wisconsin. they have a store in menlo park

5:21 am
hours. and then on sunday it's still raining off and on. you see there may be some brakes. you may have an opportunity to get in outdoor activities. it will be few and far between. potential for at least half an inch for the south bay, .75 inch for the east bay. in san francisco closer to an inch. farther to the north even more. as we look farther into next week for the travel into the thanksgiving holiday, we take a break on monday and tuesday. wednesday that rain returns and it does look like it gets out of here in time for that thanksgiving dinner. temperatures will stay cool only in the upper 50s to low 60s for the next seven days in san francisco. for the inland areas, today will be the warmest day in the next seven days. showers tomorrow and sunday, and then again next wednesday. so a couple of chances of rain in that forecast. now what's happening in oakland, mike? >> kari, an update.
