5:39 am
use the 12th and 19th street station because last time they had it closed down, that lake merritt station, it's a small station and it got flooded with folks. that's the busiest station on the route so barlt says avoid the lake merritt station. use the 12th or the 19th station. ac transit will also have reroutes. the parade route going to be a major factor toward the bay bridge. your normal commute is just fine, this is a atypical but we're hoping to make this a pregnant practice. >> we would like that annual celebration. not like the san francisco giants every couple years. and not too hot. it's going to be hot but not too hot for the parade. >> it's going to be very nice in oakland. as we head into the weekend, look how hot it gets. the coast will be nice and comfortable. it becomes dangerous when you're out there during the hot test times of the day so make plans
