will consider a few options including one that leaves plazas intact but with the addition of cameras like at the golden gate, and that is the cheaper option at $23 million. so the mtc will be meeting at 9:30 this morning back in san francisco. from the bay bridge toll plaza, jackie ward, kpix 5. can i'm anne makovec at the live news desk where the counting continues in florida. that is what we are watching right now. take a look at these live pictures. this is in broward county. but the latest drama comes from palm beach county. that is where some of the vote counting machines have been overheating causing mismatched results in the recount of the senate race which is of course one of three races now being decided again in this recount. goor e e ttle on today, a judge is going to be hearing a

shoulder, as well. everything is out. but they are clearing it. they have opened at least one lane so traffic is moving through. we are starting to see some slow speeds behind it. 22 miles per hour in some spots. so you could still use alternates. old redwood highway north or stony point road. this closure is going to be there for quite some time hopefullat happening up there for you in just a couple of minutes. elsewhere in the bay area, metering lights are on at the bay bridge toll plaza, 33 minutes from the maze to the central freeway so you're back up almost to the maze at this point. in fact, here's a live look at conditions where the freeways merge heading into the maze and you can see traffic is starting to get very busy as you head through there. we have reports of a crash westbound 4 at solano way. it is blocking one lane. and it's cautioning some delays out of pittsburg as you work your way westbound highway 4. loveridge to 680, that's a 32-minute drive. let's check your forecast.
well, a smoky start to the day once again. checking aqi values the air quality index values and a little bit better in spots compared to yesterday morning. we are talking 104 livermore. 134 san jose. but still talking about unhealthy air quality. it does look very bad in san ancisco, 164 and espe santthair an air quality advisory and it's a "spare the air" day. temperatures running at 38 in concord. oakland 48. san francisco 52. san jose 30. -- santa rosa at 30. so maybe a little more sunshine could see some high clouds trapping in that smoke so still talking about smoky conditions for the 7th day in a row. a "spare the air" alert will be in effect through friday
because we are expecting that smoke to linger. our smoke forecast all of that red is the smoke. but we are starting to get yellow and green there for the north bay and also for the south bay. so that's a good sign of improving conditions with our air quality. it's still not going to be the best. we are still talking about unhealthy air but we are starting to see a little bit better with our air quality conditions there. a ridge of high pressure, this is the reason why, slowly losing strength. it will continue to push off to the east and that will open the door for an area of low pressure to move in. so the wind direction, that's the big story, it will take a change likely this weekend. and that will bring more of an onshore wind component for us to help kick out some of that air. and futurecast as we take you through next week, we have the chance to see some rain near thanksgiving. around that time. maybe a day before or a day after could see that rain.
we'll likely have a better idea of that as we get closer to hopi for that rain for sure. sunrise at 6:48. sunset at 4:58. daytime highs today on the cool side. 60s and 70s for highs today. smoky skies through friday, "spare the air" alert through the workweek, better air quality from unhealthy during the week and saturday moderate air quality. we are looking at rain chances next week. time now 5:51. >> good news amid devastation. coming up a horse running from the fire ends up trapped in a dangerous situation. this morning, the man who came to help just in time. >> and here's a live look outside at the richmond/san rafael bridge. we'll be right back. if i never get off this island, tell my family i love...

this horse jumped into a swimming pool as paradise caught fire. a man from chico came upon it and said the animal looked defeated. the shivering horse was tangled in the pool cover which prevented her from drowning. amazingly, the good samaritan managed to get her out and pulled her to safety. it was so cool that he was able to stop and d say, okay, yeah, that horse is going to live. it's cool. >> smart horse and so much devastation in the area but nice to see some stories like this people helping others as well as animals like this horse. >> yeah. it's awesome. 5:56 right now. federal and state leaders are heading to butte county this morning with the "camp fire" relief effort getting under way. we'll have the latest on the battle against the deadliest wildfire to ever hit california. >> reporter: plus, transportation officials are considering ways to reduce traffic in the bay area that might be getting rid of toll plazas as we know them.
