this is in sausalito. it's an overturned car. fire crews are trying to clear the situation but they are blocking two right lanes. traffic moving at just about 50 miles per hour. so not too slow if you are headed down the 101 here. now moving over to a new crash in san francisco, westbound 80 before 5th street just after the bay bridge, it's a multi- vehicle crash and chp is saying there are five to six vehicles involved. and we'll keep you posted as to when that is cleared. we see some delays, however, if you are heading on westbound 80 coming off the bay bridge. now, moving over to the bay bridge toll plaza, stacking up towards the maze already, traffic backed up right past the overcross there. carquinez bridge along the eastshore freeway to the maze westbound about 23 minutes. expect about a 15- to 20-minute drive in the toll plaza into downtown san francisco. over to the altamont pass, this is where our slowest traffic is of the morning coming off 205 at just about 35 miles per hour. slow into north flynn road. 205 to altamont pass, 15
minutes. mass transit, just to let you know, that delay that we were talking about all morning has been recovered. no mass transit delays. we are talking rain on hi- def doppler. the front still well north of us, in fact redding saw a wind gust at 59 miles per hour earlier this morning so high winds up there, not so much for us just yet but they are increasing. you can see the leading edge of the rain still just north of san francisco. let's take a look at this. a rain-snow mix over the high country right now. snow levels are going to be high, 8,000 lowering to 7,000 by this weekend. but overall [chuckling] we are already seeing snow in kirkwood, great news for them. back here, closer to home, we are starting to see those showers sink south into our neck of the woods as we take a closer look at san francisco. notice some rain on the lens here. temperatures in the mid-60s at this hour. so mild temperatures to start out. but you want to grab an
umbrella maybe a light rain jacket. temperatures will moderate. here's a look free satellite perspective at this system. right now heading into british columbia, it's not necessarily the area of low pressure that we're tracking today. it is the front associated with it passing through and that's what brings with it the highest winds and the heaviest rainfall. in fact, we can track it with futurecast here and wind speeds. notice 6 a.m. futurecast anticipating the highest winds still up north so that's a good indicator of where the front will be with wind gusts upwards of 20 miles per hour in santa rosa, lighter farther south. as we advance on through late morning, though, the front sinks south. 20 to 25 miles per hour, livermore, half moon bay and then winds die down later this afternoon as the front passes through to our south. the same is true with the heaviest rainfall. here we are at around 8:00. we start to see some of the heavier rain passing south of santa rosa into the san francisco area continuing to sink south towards the end of
the morning commute and seeing more widespread light to moderate rainfall hayward, santa cruz, higher elevations seeing more rain. lingering showers for the south bay into the afternoon and then we all stay unsettled friday into saturday. i'm pausing at saturday at 8 p.m. when our next front passes through. we'll see higher winds with the saturday system. but less rain with that one. and then futurecast indicating we stay wet really just unsettled with showers and clouds through the weekend even on into monday. overall, our three-day totals, friday through sunday night. we could see upwards of 4" in the north bay over an inch for the south bay and certainly higher amounts possible for the santa cruz mountains at the higher elevations. high temperatures today not so high topping out near 70 for fairfield, concord, livermore 69. 63 pacifica. 68 redwood city and mountain view. a look at the extended forecast shows you will need to keep the umbrella handy for a few days. likely the heaviest rain today, um, and we will see winds pick up today but we might actually
see higher winds in the system moving through saturday into sunday. the rain will be a bit more showery and lighter in nature. just keep that umbrella around saturday, sunday and on in through monday. drying out tuesday and warming towards the latter half of next week. now to dennis. i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up the raiders didn't play last night. but still won big. we'll show you what happened. the dodgers brought the ace out of the bullpen. we'll show that you as well and whether or not the move paid off. coming up. ,,,,,,

the dodgers led the nationals 4- 1. so it was 4-3 bottom of the 9th. in comes clayton kershaw to the bullpen. a day's rest and he struck out one player to end the game. dodgers win 4-3 to win the series in five games. they will now face the cubs in the nlcs. phil mickelson shot a three- under 69 in the first round of the safeway open at silverado. mickelson is 7 shots behind the leader scott piercy who had 12 birdies en route to shooting a course record 62. he leads paul casey by 2 shots. joe decamillis filling in as broncos head coach last night in san diego for gary kubiak. how do you think that went? opening drive of the game, chargers phillip rivers finds hunter henry for a five-yard touchdown. ready for this?

hood so things are changing of the storm has been rolling from the norm to the south here in the north bay. i'm in larkspur in marin county. the rain is starting to come down and the winds have been kicking up all morning long. luckily, traffic still moving smoothly here along highway 101. we're waiting for heavy rain which should be here momentarily. pg&e crews were out in force yesterday trying to clear branches from their power lines because this combo of wind and rain will likely knock out some power. authorities encourage everybody to check your gutters and pick up anything in your yard that could become a projectile in strong winds. some people spoke with joe vazquez yesterday. >> put on the rain boots, rain jacket, splash in the puddles. avoid bringing mud in the house. [ laughter ] >> reporter: now, as for the roadways if you are heading
out, they will be slick this morning. some of the regular low water spots will be under water like the manzanita "park & ride" part of which will be closed for a week as a precaution. so everybody preparing for this right now. and just in the minute or so i have been speaking, the rain has been coming down a little harder. so yeah, julie has been talking about it all morning and tracking it. let's go to her now for more details on what to expect for the rest of the morning. >> i zoomed in hi-def doppler into where you are standing right now, anne. our latest radar sweep moved a cell right over the top of you. this is lucky drive. there's plenty more where that came. with the leading edge of that, you can see the heaviest rain north of san francisco although we are getting showers in san francisco. i do want to point this out. this is exciting for anyone who is looking forward to the ski season. we are starting to see a rain-
snow mix at some of the highest elevations levels high. we don't see a lot at lake level from 7,000 to 8,000 feet depending on the day this excessive we. but we are still seeing some, nonetheless. back here in our neck of the woods, again the heaviest rainfall still over the north bay and, in fact, if we zoom into up near santa rosa to south of santa rosa we are seeing moderate to light rainfall right now near rohnert park, and many areas novato, inverness, light to moderate rainfall. as i put it into motion we are seeing rain pushing off as it moves inland and south so all of us are going to see it here over the next few hours. looking at what else to expect today, we'll see increasing showers in san francisco over the next couple of hours. we have some raindrops on the lens this morning over the city and temperature-wise we are mild. in the 60s right now pretty much areawide so it sounds like you need that big parka out the door. it's not a winter storm by any
means. the early season storm will keep things warmer than you might expect. but we will see windy conditions so if you are out at the coast you may find those gusty winds. we found maria earlier with really windy conditions out there in pacifica. overall, though, wind speeds sustained are not too high in 10 to 15-mile-per-hour range 18 in vallejo. it's the gusts that we're more concerned about. those will come as the front passes through today. could see upwards of 30 even 40 miles per hour in some of the highest elevations. so our weather headlines, rain and wind for your friday morning. second round inside. we'll see less of that heavy rainfall but higher winds the second time around. and then we remain unsettled, gray and damp into monday necessary week. warmer conditions on the horizon, as well. back to you guys. authorities in santa clara
county are preparing for possible mud slides. they are worried that the rain could cause some problems after the "loma fire." residents can fill up sandbags today and you can stop by the open space authority parking lot on casa loma road or the el toro fire station. conditions are starting to get rough along the coast. for more on that let's go to a somewhat wind blown maria medina. she joins us live from pacifica. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. yeah, we are ready for the rain! but it is not here yet. i can tell you that the winds are really starting to pick up here. we'll go ahead and push into the waves here so you can see the surf here along pacifica and it's when those waves get closer to the coastline that the residents really become concerned out here because as you remember just a few months ago and how could you forget this scene if you lived here, when el nino really battered the coastline. we saw the seawall buckle out here, a big hole and cliff erosion. city leaders declared a state
of emergency and even demolished an entire apartment building as it teetered over a cliff sides. well, today we are expecting high surf and that's what concerns residents out here. we are expecting 14 to 16-foot waves along the coast. and an even larger swell into saturday and sunday. >> the now that winter is kind of coming along it can get heavy out there and get dangerous. so, um, i mean, people should avoid the waters if they don't know what they are doing. in the summer it's safer. >> reporter: and really some great advice because as you know, when these high surfs come in we always hear of rescues out here so officials really telling people to stay out of the water because of those rip currents. live in pacifica, maria medina, kpix 5. all right. 6:35 right now. let's check the roads with roqui. >> thank you. we are getting busy now in the traffic center. let's take a look here in san francisco. westbound 80 crash backing
traffic up into the maze across the span of the bay bridge. so this is a problem for the morning commute. this is the left side of the harrison street off-ramp and it is blocked and you see a live look thanks to caltrans the crews trying to clear the situation. now as i said the left side of the harrison street ramp is blocked. but otherwise, traffic is backed up along the bay bridge to the maze and here's a look at the toll plaza. the maze to downtown right now will take you 30 minutes so very heavy conditions into downtown san francisco. moving over to a traffic alert issued by chp, southbound 101 in sausalito before spencer avenue an overturned car still out there blocking lanes and we have emergency crews blocking lanes with it. and it's blocking the -- [ pause ] -- block the two right lanes, specifically. now it's causing traffic to move at 12 miles per hour heading to the golden gate bridge. moving to the peninsula commute, very slow conditions from hayward to foster city. as you can see, traffic very slow after the toll plaza.
880 to 101 westbound will take you a very slow 20 minutes. now, if you want to avoid all that traffic we just reported on, mass transit is on time. no delays. i'll send it to you. >> all right, roqui. thank you. charges could be filed soon against the skipper of a boat that capsized on the bay throwing 30 people overboard. the coast guard stood by as the boat was pulled out yesterday to make sure no oil was spilled. it capsized on saturday. the chaos was caught on camera. everyone on board survived. but the skipper could face charges for possibly overloading the boat with too many people. two children nearly drowned that day. investigators are trying to determine if they had life jackets on. one of the victims who was reportedly sexually assaulted by a water polo player at san jose state is speaking out. she told the "mercury news" that she texted several people on her phone for help during the attack. she says that the suspect trapped her in a bedroom during

food costs on the rise, chicken eggs up over 25% in september and also vegetables up more than 10%. bank earnings are coming in including wells fargo, embattled over its fraudulent sales scandal. john stumpf resigned this week. they topped earning expectations in the 3rd quarter own though profit was down from a year early. chase and citigroup posted pretty strong reports. and that's helped giving the market a boost in the early going today. let's go to the big board. we are off to a nice start. we could use it. it's been a tough week overall. dow up 150. nasdaq up 36. s&p up 14. back to you. >> thank you, jason brooks from kcbs radio. as nevada lawmakers consider funding today for a raiders move to las vegas, the team is getting support from an unexpected name to keep them in oakland. former 49ers owner eddie debartolo spoke with oakland city leaders yesterday afternoon. nevada lawmakers are expected to vote on the stadium deal
