dogs, at the "golden gate national recreation area." yesterday... the national park service called off plans there will be no further
6:15 am
restrictions on dogs it the golden gate national recreation area. yesterday the national park service called off plans that would have put more limits on locations where dogs could go off leash. the decision comes months after it was determined that some park service officials improperly used personal email accounts to communicate about the proposed rules. a clerical error has caused a bit of a stir in san francisco politics. a vote that would have caused a name change for justin herman plaza has now been deemed invalid. the recreation and parks commission voted 3-3 to change the site's name so that was a tie not 4-3 as many media outlets reported after a meeting yesterday. it was discovered later that a commissioner left early for an appointment instead of voting yes as he had intended. the name change stems from herman's involvement displacing black communities from the western addition back in the 1960's. the commission is going to take another vote on the proposal november 16th. sfmta released the results

6:17 am
freeway but where we are tracking this crash, highway 29 near 221. we have had so many closures in the area. as soon as they open up some of these roads, we have seen accidents immediately of course. please be careful if you are heading there. we are starting to see some slowdowns on southbound 29. one lane is blocked. in vallejo westbound yellow 40- minute ride between 80 and 101. hi-def doppler has some green on the screen but you can see the storm system is now winding down. i want to take you though to the higher elevations and show you the snow. yes, right now, it looks like just a few little areas of flakes. there was a mix of rain and snow. not significant amount. this is kingvale. fresh snow is here! but yes, there are chain
6:18 am
controls. caltrans has chain controls in effect for 80 at the moment. there is still this winter weather advisory until 11:00 this morning. so this would be the first significant snow of the season, with travel delays and chain controls likely. we got showers coming through. here's the totals we got: right now the rain is winding down. it's pretty clear out there. temperatures in the 50s. i want to show you what's happening. we have cold air that's going to stick around today because of this low. it actually has a lot of cold
6:19 am
air associated with it also pushing -- the west wind pushing towards us causing choppy conditions on the water, rougher surf and the advisory ends at 6 p.m., some waves on west-facing beaches up to 25 feet. cooler temperatures today. 61 degrees will be the high in san francisco. this cooler air is short-lived. saturday we are starting to warm up. sunday they will get warm again. then monday, tuesday, wednesday, it's going to get hot. so we are shifting from an onshore flow to an offshore flow and that could increase our fire danger as we start the workweek next week. big question this morning, where will amazon land? five bay area cities are now teaming up to submit a joint proposal for amazon's new headquarters. that includes san francisco, oakland, fremont, concord and richmond. over 50 cities total have submitted proposals including an independent bid from the city of san jose. amazon says it plans to invest
