like that to get them. >> you need those as you get ready to head out. here is a live look outside right now at 5:08, we've been talking about the air quality, and the fact that it will not improve over the next several days, so we know it's going to be very unhealthy today, and it stays unhealthy for all of our microclimates through friday, with only some minor improvement for the weekend. we're looking at temperatures this morning starting out in the 30s and 40s. it is a cold start and then as we look at our morning commute in brentwood, we'll be at 39 degrees between 6:00 and 7:00, and then at 10:00, we're at 48 degrees and still the smoky skies linger, as we only make it up to about 57 degrees at noon, and then on your way out to the fruitvale b.a.r.t. station, it will be 45 as you step out the door and then some low 60s today with partly to mostly cloudy skies. as we head over to mike you were saying the nimitz should be clearing up. >> exactly, kari. we're looking at construction
crews that pickhaven't picked u their work. the sensors are not quite clear but the approach to the bay bridge, cocoa county is just fine. it's right here through alameda county southbound 880, slows again from about 980 toward 23rd and i've seen the speed sensors continue to update and change over the last five minutes. caltrans don't say they're clear until they've reopened the lanes. the speed sensors will take a while to clear up and we have from time to time equipment in the area which will skew the data as far as the speeds go. allow a little extra time, another five minutes 980 past the high street bridge and everything's fine once you get through the rest of oakland. in the south bay, we have north 101 at 280, reports of a crash there, but we have our camera there and i don't see any problems in this shot, coming up to the area. there may be activity on the shoulder at story, that's just outside of our view, but no slowing shows up on our sensors. it's lighter traffic. back to you. >> thank you, mike. it is 5:09. coming up, a tribute during

fires. drubbing on the markets on monday, the dow fell more than 600, nasdaq was down more than 3%. note this apple number. now, the president says the dip on the markets is because investors think democrats are going to bother him. the president is wrong. democrats may very well give him a hard time, but the markets had been knowing about the results of the election for a week now, right? so it's not politics. it was really apple. you remember those red numbers, apple fell 5%. apple is a dow component but trades on the nasdaq, so it pulled both indices lower. we expect amazon will announce new headquarters any moment now. amazon set up a contest for cities to compete for the new hq. it will be hqs, two of them. we expect amazon will announce that queens and then arlington, virginia are going to get the nod. that's a huge disappointment for lots. amazon is seen as not playing fair. neither city will get as many

curious and that is exactly what they think autonomous cars may be used for. >> really? oh wow, interesting. >> they could be used for other things like this right here. if you get locked out of your car, scott. >> get a room! >> maybe siri can help you with this. there's a new app from volkswagen now that allows people the apple users to lock and unlock their car, and you can actually also set the car temperature or even tell the electric cars when to start or stop charging. the app comes at a monthly subscription fee of $18. the air quality was good enough for the 49ers to play last night. the team took an opportunity to give back to fire victims. they invited the paradise high school football team, coaches and cheerleaders to the game. many had lost their homes in the camp fire. >> seeing those guys was emotional. they made it out alive. all our coaches made it out. it's a miracle.

chilly start and after that long weekend, it's time to get the kids ready for school in san jose. it's going to be 43 degrees. keep in mind they may be inside for recess today, so they may be extra wired up by the time they get home. it's in the upper 60s as you go back to pick them up. martinez temperatures 46 degrees at 6:00. at 10:00 we're at 67, and 63 degrees as you go out for lunch and then we are talking about having to limit your time outside even with such nice temperatures, it will be in the upper 60s and low 70s across the bay area. as you get ready styling your air this morning, static is likely, so dry and we will have a calm wind today but overall a good hair day. look bt asome dry air, a northerly wind coming in over the next several days and that's the reason why we'll not see improvement in the air quality. going into the weekend, there will be a shift in the wind as
we start to see an area of low pressure approaching and possibly a few more clouds moving in, as we go toward next week, it is looking fairly promising that we will see some rain moving in, starting on tuesday, and then continuing through the end of the week, possibly a couple of waves of it. we'll continue to finetune that forecast. near term, we're still dry and highs in the upper 60s for the inland valleys. more cool mornings with lower 40s. san francisco seeing more of the same. pretty uniform temperatures from the coast to the inland valleys. headed over to mike, you were saying there's a crash that was in san jose. >> yes, but it cleared. we were tracking it 101 at story. it did clear without a problem. the other crash sunnyvale, cleared from the connector from 237 to 101, so we're back at speeds there and pretty much all over the rest of the bay. recovery continues right up here. you see that south 880 toward 23rd, although the overnight crew is registered as clear from caltrans, slowing, still equipment in the area and cones to clear as well. southbound 17 or northbound, either direction between santa
cruz and los gatos is moving smoothly over the summit. 101 no problems out here, gilroy, san martin, morgan hill, everybody coming into the silicon valley without any problems. we're getting more company of course. it's about that time. getting over toward the bay bridge the travel times are looking great. you're at your minimum from highway 4 over to the berkeley curve. although the bay bridge toll plaza cars are backing up over the last three minutes, they may have turned on the metering lights about a minute earlier than we often see or perhaps this is just the backup as the incline gets congested, so do the metering lights and back in toward the toll plaza, whatever the case, you started your way. >> thank you, mike. coming up, honoring a hero that created larger than life comic heroes. this morning, tributes keep coming in for stan lee. how hollywood is remembering him, next. plus a twist on "the voice" tonight. the reason this oakland woman who didn't make it through the blind audition could get a second chance to get back in on the competition. we'll tell you how she's landing a huge break.

"the mercury news" reporting this morning the city is in negotiations with airlines that would have to fly with perhaps lighter loads in order to acome date a higher skyline. mayor sam liccirdo said mineta
is the fastest growing airport in the nation and "transforming our downtown skyline and maintaining a world class international airport each constitutes important fundamental long-term economic objective. we've had to manage conflicts between the two." those two are not the only stakeholders, and at 11:00 this morning, the labor group "working partnerships usa" is planning an announcement about the development near diridon station near google and that is one of the areas that would be impacted by this higher height restriction near downtown san jose, and near mineta san jose. that's coming at 11:00 this morning. we'll let you know what we hear about that. in san jose, kris sanchez,ed "today in the bay." >> thanks, kris. the high-rises will not affect the skyline or approach to the airport. more people, more traffic so i'll be watching that closely as well. there it is, not a problem, the south bay and peninsula right now. tri valley, east bay, everything is looking really good.
