sound legal basis. >> the nra says it will sue if sunnyvale voters pass the new gun laws. polls close tonight at 8:00. new this morning, the pleasant hill city council approved new regulations on gun sales. the new ordinance requires gun dealers to keep their distance from neighborhoods, parks and schools. they also will have to install alarms and turn over employee background information to police. 5:10 now. friends and family plan another march today to protest the death of andy lopez, the sonoma county teen shot by a sheriff's deputy. lopez's parents filed a federal lawsuit yesterday against the county and deputy eric gelhaus. the suit claims last month's shooting was reckless and violated the teen's civil rights. investigators have said the deputy opened fire after the teen refused to drop the fake ak-47. >> we are going to prove through our investigation,

so this could be a bad commute. all right. westbound 80 approaching central, this is another accident we're watching in the clearing stages now. one car was on its side blocking the slow lane. so far sensors aren't picking up a lot of delays now from richmond down into berkeley. and if you are heading towards the bay bridge toll plaza, this is what it looks like right now. the drive time holding steady at 19 minutes from the carquinez bridge to the maze and with no metering lights, everything looks good heading into san francisco. we got a little warmup on the way. with more on your forecast, here's lawrence. >> yeah, very nice weather ahead as it looks like high pressure is building in today. things could change in the not too distant future though. so enjoy it, plenty of sunshine to the coastline coastline, mixed bag with temperatures all over the map early on. milder to start the day, then plenty of sunshine and a little warmer but changes as we head in toward the next few days. all right. high pressure in control now. looks like it's going to stick around for at least another day bringing you that nice mild weather so warming right through wednesday. and then after that, we start to notice some changes, some clouds beginning to move into our skies. we may start talking about some
rain toward the weekend. all right. 60s and 70s into the central valley. 50% chance of showers toward eureka at 57 degrees. headed around the bay today, you will see temperatures in the 60s and 70s in the south bay, low 60s toward the coastline. lots of 70s into the east bay. and then inside the bay today you will find some sunshine and comfortable 72 in oakland and 66 degrees in san francisco. as we look toward the next couple of days, we'll warm things up a little bit through tomorrow. then cooling down more clouds on the way on thursday. much cooler temperatures over the weekend. clouding up sunday. and into monday, guys, there's a chance, just a chance, of some showers. i can't wait for that. back to you. >> the rain, it's acomin'. thank you, lawrence. 5:18 now. ohio kidnapping survivor michelle knight has revealed more details of her years in captivity all during an interview on the dr. phil show. knight was one of the three women held captive for more than a decade by ariel castro, who died in prison this past

it's estimated that 30% of the traffic in a city is caused by people looking for parking. that's remarkable that so much energy is, is wasted. streetline has looked at the problem of parking, which has not been looked at for the last 30, 40 years, we wanted to rethink that whole industry, so we go and put out these sensors in each parking spot and then there's a mesh network that takes this information
sends it over the internet so you can go find exactly where those open parking spots are. the collaboration with citi was important for providing us the necessary financing; allow this small start-up to go provide a service to municipalities. citi has been an incredible source of advice, how to engage with municipalities, how to structure deals, and as we think about internationally, citi is there every step of the way. so the end result is you reduce congestion, you reduce pollution and you provide a service to merchants, and that certainly is huge. good evening, this is flo.

i just froze. >> nobody was hurt. investigators say 20-year-old richard shoop was found in a back area of the mall death of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. the mall will be closed today as police continue to investigate that scene a frantic phone call prompted a tourist's family to come from brazil to look for a missing family member. paulo netto came to san francisco for a brief visit but apparently met someone and decided to stay longer. his sister said he sounded terrified when he dialed her number a week ago. >> anna, i'm in trouble. there's some people following me. and i need help. call the police. call a taxi. send someone to find me. >> police have a surveillance photo of a person of interest who used netto's credit card at a mcdonald's in the mission on halloween night. police say netto may be in an "altered state of mind." new details are emerging on the decades long relationship
between randy alana and sandra coke. the federal investigator was allegedly killed by alana over the summer. the two have a 15-year-old daughter together. they were a couple 20 years ago and may have gotten together when he was released from prison. the nephew says coke thought alana had something to do with her dog's disappearance. coke's body was later found in august four days after she went missing. well, today is election day in california and other states across the nation. >> there are several high- profile measures on the ballot in the bay area and beyond. melissa griffin-caen joins to us break down the ballot items. >> good morning. we have to talk about the sunnyvale measure, measure c. if for no other reason, it is one of the most interesting things happening in the bay area. it would prohibit the possession of gun magazines that are capable of holding more than 10 rounds. the nra has said it is going to
sue if this passes. it's not clear if it will pass. it depends on voter turnout. if it does, you can bet we'll see the beginning of a lawsuit. >> sounds like the mayor no said bring it on, right? >> oh, yes. i think they are prepared but you may recall back in 2005 san franciscans passed proposition 8 and that prohibited people from possessing handguns within the city of san francisco. and a judge in the superior court struck is down and said cities are not permitted to ban handguns from law-abiding citizens. so in addition to the second amendment issue, you have the issue of whether cities are capable of passing laws that restrict gun ownership and gun possession. so there are two fronts they will be attacking legally. i think at the end of the day, it's going to take a long time but it law will fail. >> another one voters in san francisco two measures related to the condo project called 8 washington. >> that's an interesting one.
there's a lot of confusion about that one. if that one goes down and i keep getting this question, what happens if this doesn't pass, the developer has spent over $40 million getting permits, having designs drawn up. it's hard to believe that they are just going to walk away from this. and remember that $40 million comes from a teacher's retirement fund. i can't believe that they are going to just throw up their hands and say we lost. that remember, the initial proposal was for two 84-foot- tall buildings and everyone said oh, no that's too boxy we hate that and that's why we came up with this step-down measure we see today with requires a height exemption. so be careful what you wish for, voters. if this fails, the developer may come back with a perfectly compliant development plan that they may hate more. >> colorado voters taking up a question that some californians might be facing here shortly as well, right? >> we have our own stater jefferson that folks up north tried to declare and succeed, a state of jefferson.
11 counties in colorado are now today voting on whether to pursue secession and forming a 51st state called north colorado. these aren't binding resolutions but they would bind their own local governments and force them to pursue secession with the state legislature. it's unlikely much will happen but it's interesting and again we might see see our folks in modoc and other places in northern california voting on something similar too. >> let's hope people get out and vote. >> they are estimating 35% voter turnout at the department of elections. i think that's grossly optimistic. [ laughter ] >> i think it's probably going to be less, maybe 20, 25% but at any rate everybody, vote if you can. >> thank you. remember, you can find more of melissa's segments on kpix.com/mornings. new landing rules could significantly cut down on the delays at san jose international airport this winter. kpix 5 reporter cate caugiran is at sfo to explain the changes allowing more arrivals
during bad weather. cate. >> reporter: and what perfect timing, michelle, because, you know, winter, we're getting into winter, that's when we're seeing more of the fog and that bad weather not to mention we are getting that big holiday travel rush as well so hopefully this new rule will bring more happier and on time passengers. reporter: bay area travelers know bad weather, thick fog are the common culprits to backing up arriving flights into sfo. but a new faa landing protocol plans to open up both airports' runways to keep air traffic moving at a steady pace. right now on a clear day airplanes are allowed to fly side by side on the parallel runways. but when the weather outside is frightful, planes are only allowed to use one runway flying in one by one creating a single file backup. an faa spokesman says under the new protocol, planes still won't land side by side but the faa will allow staggered landing on two runways and that means an additional one to six
planes can land. sfo airport officials say this won't be the end all-be all to weather delays, but it will help get rid of some of the backup and you on time to your destination. a lot of passengers, i'm sure, are wondering opening two runways when it's bad weather, is that safe? well, an sfo spokesman says they did years of studies before they actually gave this protocol the green light. live at sfo, michelle, back to you. >> cate, we know they implemented the new rule in late september. has it helped since? >> reporter: well, you know, the sfo spokesman says it's really too soon to say because as you remember, october was a really nice clear month. but they said that it should actually make an impact. the biggest delays at sfo are those bad weather delays. >> all right. cate caugiran live at sfo. thank you. lawrence, i'm looking at the bay bridge over there in the weather center. looks like no fog out there right now? >> no, no delays to worry about today. the temperatures kind of all over the map. we have some offshore winds out there and it should make for a
great day ahead. plenty of sunshine coming our way. out the door right now, kind of interesting how this is working out at 60 degrees in livermore. but you head over the hill to concord, how about that? 42 degrees right now. so where we're seeing some of those winds that's keeping the temperatures up. where it goes calm, we're watching the numbers drop off. temperatures up overnight, 60s and 70s in the south bay. east bay temperatures up into the 70s and a beautiful day on tap. inside the bay, we'll find sunshine too about 66 in san francisco and 72 degrees in oakland. enjoy it. a major change in the weather pattern is coming our way. we'll have more on that in a moment. right now let's check the roads now with your "kcbs traffic" with elizabeth. >> thanks, lawrence. now that the traffic alert in livermore is cleared we have a couple of new problems. westbound 80 approaching central, we have been talking about this accident for a while. car is sideways blocking one lane. now we see delays building through richmond only 11 miles per hour before that central exit. also, i mentioned a crash up to
the nimitz freeway northbound 880 right before the coliseum and the 66 exit. multi-vehicle crash, cars swerved to avoid a stalled car in the center divide. no huge delays yet. they may have just cleared it to the right-hand shoulder. but just a heads up if your commute takes you towards that area. that traffic alert westbound 580 that was our big problem spot when we first got on the air this morning at 4:30. had been blocking multiple lanes by first street. it is now cleared but major delays, huge delays now up over the altamont pass and even into tracy right now. and bay bridge actually everything looks good now towards the pay gates. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." back to you guys. the bart board is expected to vote this week to ratify the tentative contract that ended that strike last month. bart union members accepted the deal last week. bart workers will get a 15% pay raise over the next four years. they will get 12 sick days a year and employees who get
