be the cause of a massive wildfire burning right now outside of reno. at least a dozen homes have been destroyed and one man has died of an apparent heart attack. how about some weather now? >> hey, we got some changes coming our way today. we have some scattered light showers showing up around the bay area, most of that confined to the north bay. as we're satisfying some of the showers on the high-def doppler radar, we're seeing some on the hi-def doppler, you not much rain yet. toward the afternoon, a better chance of rain and scattered showers around the bay area. it's going to be cool starting out with 40s and 50s, partly to mostly cloudy right now but by the afternoon, not much improvement in those temperatures. it will stay in the 50s for highs today. and the showers will be on the increase in the latter part of the day. you have that cold air now moving in the from the gulf of alaska. you see most of the rain is in the far northern parts of california. winter weather advisories in the sierra nevada so watch out if you are heading there. snow levels expected to drop below 3,000 feet overnight. all that cold air diving in going to keep things unsettled,
6:18 am
much cooler outside. and then today, maybe some showers, kind of a break on saturday. but as we head in towards saturday night, sunday, this low drops down and spins along the coastline an dice south so a chance it could spin up a couple of showers saturday into sunday. clouds move by this morning, not too bad, maybe a couple of scattered light showers but i think they become more numerous toward the afternoon. you see that band moving on through then. continuing in through the evening hours. so pop-up showers and then looks like it will settle down tonight into tomorrow morning. temperatures expected to be in the 50s for the most part around the bay area, staying nice and cool outside. so bundle up. it will be chilly only about 55 degrees in san francisco. next couple of days we are going to keep things a little unsettled into latter part of the weekend as those clouds will roll back in looks like late in the day on saturday and a chance of showers overnight saturday night into sunday. dry on monday and tuesday. maybe some more rain for the holiday. that's a look at weather. let's talk to elizabeth about traffic. >> we started noticing some slower speeds on southbound 880 from hayward and union city. this is why.
6:19 am
chopper 5 is over the scene. there is some roadwork going on. caltrans crews are out there. this is southbound 880 past the alvarado niles exit there in union city. it looks like the off-ramp and possibly that right lane are blocked day to construction. not sure if it's running late. but check out the backup on southbound 880. it is pretty slow from at least highway 92 there in hayward. so yeah, expect some delays on southbound 880. it looks like northbound traffic is getting by okay. but again, we're checking in with caltrans now to see what's going on and why they have that roadwork there past the alvarado niles exit. all right. elsewhere let's go to the south bay. we have another camera there, 101 near the mckee exit. everything looks great here. no delay on 101, 280 pretty quiet, as well. a busy morning at the bay bridge. first i want to show you a live look at 880 through oakland. so farther north up the nimitz. this looks okay near oracle and quiet towards downtown. bay bridge stacked up early this morning. i think some commuters are
6:20 am
getting a head start towards maybe sfo or taking a longer break for their thanksgiving holiday. so far no metering lights. so actually looks okay in those fastrak lanes. but coming up, we'll take a check along the peninsula as well if you do have a flight to catch this morning. back to you. >> thank you. 6:20 now. a lot of people are just sick of the hassles of air travel, speaking of that. but this may be a first. hundreds of passengers traveling from india to england were stranded for six hours in vienna on wednesday. that's not that unusual until their comtel airline stopped for fuel. the charterer service then asked passengers to kick in more than $31,000 to buy gas. even asked some of them to get off so they could hit the atm [ laughter ] >> my god. you have to be kidding! >> this isn't a road trip. [ laughter ] >> it's not bad enough you're stuck for six hours on the tarmac although vienna is a lovely place, but not at the airport. >> $31,000. >> a lot of do re mi. big game week of course.

6:31 am
police are holding that suspect for the killing. >> reporter: we just got off the phone moments ago with the vallejo police department. they are confirming and saying that everyone involved in yesterday's bank robbery and shooting is in custody. they would not expand as to how many suspects they have in custody or if there is even one but they did say that everyone involved in in custody. we are outside the police station. a growing memorial, flowers, candles, balloons, a solano counties deputy came by just moments ago and paid his respects and prayed right here at the memorial. now, take a picture, take a look at this picture of officer capoot who was 45 years old, 19 years with the police here in vallejo. prior to that he worked for chp and is a marine veteran. here's the scene from yesterday afternoon. this is janice street. the tragedy started unfolding around 1:30. capoot responding to a bank robbery at a nearby bank of
6:32 am
america on springs road. he spotted the vehicle, the suspect sufficient chased after it for a -- the suspect suv chased after it for a few miles. he did a pit maneuver, it spun out of control and here's what happened next. >> shortly after exiting his vehicle and chasing the suspects officers who were arriving just moments later heard several shots fired. they discovered our officer down in the backyard and he was mortally wounded. >> and capoot was rushed to kaiser hospital where he later died. as you can see here, his comrades from the police department also probably family and other friends gathering and giving each other hugs and supporting each other which they will need this morning and he is survived by his wife and three kids. back to you. >> gil, i understand that the officer was wearing some sort of bulletproof vest or some sort of body armor, is that true?
6:33 am
and it didn't help, i guess , huh? >> reporter: that is true. a sergeant confirmed he was wearing body armor. cbs 5 sources say he was shot in the back. so even though he was wearing the body armor, maybe the shooter wars at close range or just essentially ambushed the officer. >> thank you, gil diaz live in the east bay. dozens of law enforcement officers and members of the community watched as the van carrying the body of officer capoot drove away in a procession. he was beloved in the communities of vallejo where he worked and vacaville where he lived. he received two medals of courage, two live saving medals and other honors in the vallejo police department. he was a mentor as well and a coach in the community helping a lot of young people. >> he was an amazing person. everybody who needed help, he was there. if you needed protection, he would be there. anybody hurt you, he would be

"occupy" encampment in downtown san francisco is now a public health nuisance. the director of public works did his latest walk-through at justin herman plaza yesterday. he and other officials found human waste, tents that were too close to one another for people to move around safely, and cramped conditions that can lead to illness there. but he also cited some progress in one respect. >> we have not seen any pets here. that is a huge improvement from what we are seeing in previous weeks. >> no pets? >> no animals. i don't see -- does anybody see any dogs or cats? a few weeks ago there were as many as 25 here. that's a huge improvement. >> we talked with police just a short time ago. they said that despite the new
6:35 am
public nuisance declaration, no police raid is imminent. tomorrow "occupy oakland" will be setting up a new camp in the city after a rally and march. this will be the first time since they were cleared out from frank ogawa plaza on monday. tomorrow's march will start at broadway and 14th and end across the fox theatre at telegraph avenue. they plan to camp there in an empty lot. meanwhile in downtown san jose the standoff continues between city officials and a man atop a 36-foot-high wall at city hall plaza. sean o'kelly first climbed up there almost four weeks ago as "occupy san jose" protestors began camping below. yesterday, city wrote him a formal letter telling him he is trespassing. o'kelly vows to stay up there for 99 days. the "occupy san jose" voluntarily removed their tents after they said they would be evicted if they didn't.
6:36 am
some of them are going to have endure the rain this weekend. >> not too bad. not a washout. lawrence? >> just some scattered showers out there right now. i think toward the weekend more of the same going to be picking up toward the latter part of the day. still we are seeing some showers in the north bay this morning. out the door most of the wet this morning toward the afternoon most of the bay area going to see some scattered showers. that cold air pouring down from the gulf of alaska going to bring some unsettled weather and cooler temperatures outside. numbers into the 50s and 40s right now. by the afternoon, highs only in the 50s in the afternoon, a brisk 55 degrees with some showers into san francisco. about 58 in livermore. more on the weekend forecast coming up. right now let's check the roads with elizabeth. >> thank you. i want to show you these problems that chopper 5 showed us. they took these pictures a little while ago. this is -- well, i was going to try to show you some video. there it is. this is southbound 880 through hayward. now, the problem is some late running roadwork that's it
6:37 am
right there from caltrans. southbound 80 by the alvarado niles exit. they have the off-ramp blocked and what sounds like two right lanes. some paving work didn't set correctly. we just got off the phone with them and so they are saying 8:00 possibly to get this situation under control. you can see them out there. they are hard at work in the meantime. it is pretty much jammed solid from highway 92 in hayward so definitely expect some delays for at least the beginning of our morning commute. now, as you saw from that map we also have some slight ace train delays. number 3 is up to 10 minutes late. that's traffic. back to you. >> thank you. 6:37. a major bombshell in a 30-year- old hollywood mystery. this morning, a yacht skipper admits that he lied about actress natalie wood's death and is pointing the finger at her husband actor robert wagner. kirk hawkins reports from l.a. where the sheriff's department is re-opening the case. >> reporter: good morning. right now we're live outside the sheriff's department
6:38 am
headquarters where they are planning a news conference later this morning at 11 a.m. as you know, the focus on the death of natalie wood has been a point of intrigue for decades now. people really have been speculating about exactly what happened and now this new interview and this new book that the skipper is behind has really caused the sheriff's department here to reopen the investigation. l.a. county sheriff's deputies say that they are taking another look at the drowning death of actress natalie wood. wood drowned while boating after catalina island nearly 30 years ago on november 29, 1981. at the time the l.a. county coroner's office and the sheriff's department ruled the drowning was an accident. homicide detectives say they are re-opening their investigation because of new recollections from the ship's skipper. he says all new this morning that he lied to investigators about events leading up to the death. he says he believes wood's
6:39 am
husband robert wagner is responsible for the death and tried to keep the investigation low profile. now, that skipper spoke out in an exclusive interview with cbs news program 48 hours. >> natalie would never in a million years take that dinghy out by herself. >> wood was with her husband robert wagner and friend christopher walken the night before she died. the trio ate dinner on catalina island and then had drinks on the couple's 60-foot yacht. all three had a fight. after the fight calmed down and he went to bed, wagner said wood wasn't in their bedroom. he told investigators he tried to search for her but couldn't find her. her body turned up the next morning a mile from the yacht. a dinghy was found beached nearby. and we reached out to wagner yesterday and he released a statement where he expressed support for the new investigation but he questioned the timing of it 30 years almost to the day of his wife's death. live in monterey park, kirk
6:40 am
hawkins, cbs 5. now back to you guys. >> kirk, frank and i were just talking about this. we are curious about the timing of this! is it just based on daven's testimony now? is he trying to sell books? why now? >> reporter: you know, initially the sheriff's department told us it was because of new information that came from a third party source. it sounds like to us that is a question that we'll have to get answered as part of that news conference later this morning but, of course, you have the book, he made a national television appearance here earlier this morning. and so it all adds this kind of cloud of suspicion where you really wonder what his motivations are behind all this but, of course, there has been intense speculation about this for decades. >> my guess is you're going to be very busy the next few weeks, my friend. ha ha. >> reporter: i think you're right. here we go again. >> kirk hawkins life in l.a., thank you. the cbs series "48 hours: mystery" will have much more on this saturday night at 10:00
6:41 am
right here on cbs 5. it is 6:40 now. the u.s. senate has approved legislation that eliminates future funding for the high- speed rail projects including right here in california. the house previously had a similar vote. it adds more doubt to california's project with an estimated cost that is now ballooned to $98.5 billion. but governor brown says he intends to let the voter- approved project move forward. it is 6:41. the filth at "occupy sf" now a public health hazard. >> is it time to close up camp? phil matier and willie brown are live at justin herman plaza with what police plan to do next. and the market opened just a few minutes ago. let's take a quick look at the early numbers. it's been a tough week so far before you so far a mixed bag but the dow is up 28. we'll crunch the numbers with kcbs moneywatch reporter jason brooks when we come back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:45 am
right now 40s and 50s, partly to mostly cloudy skies and sprinkles showing up. by the afternoon numerous showers around the bay area and temperatures going it stay cold highs in the 50s around the bay area for today. all this cold air coming from the gulf of alaska dropping in. the majority of the rain so far in far northern california a lot of the moisture ending up in the bay area toward the afternoon hours. so things becoming unsettled much cooler as a lot of the air drops in not only today but over the week especially. the good news is it's going to see showers move in today the better part of saturday okay with partly cloudy skies but by saturday night into sunday this next low drops in along the coastline going to scoot south along the coast maybe spinning up more showers late saturday night into sunday. showers toward the afternoon. you see the rain moving through pretty good band toward the afternoon hours so a wet commute. scattered showers through the evening commute, settling down on saturday so not a rainout for the weekend but chilly. highs today only in the 50s around the bay area. and by tomorrow, more of those
6:46 am
50s outside with some partly cloudy skies. a chance of showers toward sunday morning. after that things dry out monday and tuesday. maybe more rain into the holiday. that's a look at weather. let's check on traffic now with elizabeth. >> thank you, lawrence. we have a new accident just coming in, in fremont. northbound 880 right there by alvarado road. we have an accident there not causing any major delays but just a heads up. we are seeing delays through portions of hayward and union city because of late running caltrans roadwork. southbound 880 around alvarado niles exit southbound lane closes. some paving work is problematic so the backup will be until 8 a.m. elsewhere at the bay bridge a busy start at the bay bridge this morning maybe some folks getting out of town for the holiday next week. right now it's in the too bad. metering lights are on backed up to the first overcrossing.

6:50 am
as a matter of fact, it does. take the camera over here. come on, mayor. they are trying their best to keep the place clean. they have cleaned out the bocce ball courts there which was one of the demands. they are limiting a bit of tents here and stuff like that. although they do have some new structures up. what's your impression? >> well, i'm really impressed. as a matter of fact, take a look at the structure there. >> which one? >> all the balloons. and then on the other side, you got what appears to be condos. double deckers. and they are well laid out. there are walking paths so that everybody can in fact move around if they choose to do. there are places to dump garbage. it's reasonably well done. >> reporter: but is it well enough for the mayor or is the mayor trying to squeeze them down? >> i think they are having good conversations with the mayor because obviously, the population, phil, has been substantially reduced from the time we were here a few weeks
6:51 am
ago. >> i think that's the goal. i got to tell you, i think what the mayor is doing i got to be honest with you mayor brown, i see the cops over here around 24/7, putting the barriers up, i think the mayor is squeezing them out. >> reporter: he would like to reduce the population to something far more manageable, i think. i think he would like to have the population not offensive to the people who are in small business all around here all with the idea -- >> reporter: or the big ones like the hyatt and the office buildings. that's yes took them off market street. >> reporter: well, as he told me yesterday the reason he took them off market street and i think that literally the people who are in front of the federal reserve, that's an unsightly place. it's not like it is down here. >> reporter: what about this -- frank? >> i was just going to ask you, mayor brown, of course, former mayor, what would he do if he was sitting in the big chair now? >> that's not a good question. >> reporter: why not? [ laughter ]

>> i'm about to develop a herman cain moment. [ laughter ] >> i'm about to say, let me say... [ laughter ] i'm too close to the mayor to be giving any projections as to what i should or should not do or would or would not do. you might ask that of gavin if you some of i know what agnos would do. he would bring more homeless people in. >> i got a feeling what you would be doing is saying get them out of there. >> there is no question it's an eyesore no matter how clean it is. >> reporter: but your eyesore is a statement, a political statement to the people that actually support this group. and this includes don't forget, grace that includes a number of the board of supervisors. right? >> yeah. >> an labor groups which put up those porta-potties over there. so mayor ed lee, you know, he is having to deal with two things. one is what this is to people walking by and, two, what it means to the politics of city hall in the coming months. >> and if any kind of camp was acceptable, this would be one
6:53 am
of those that would be acceptable. it does not look like a junkyard. believe it or not. >> reporter: final question. are you going to go in there and join them? >> no. no, no, no. i've already prepaid rent for a couple of years.

6:59 am
i'm not. it's my wife's birthday and the cal-stanford game wasn't on the docket. i'll watch it on tv. big problems going on through hayward and union city in traffic. it is all because of this, late running roadwork with caltrans. some of the paving work they were doing overnight didn't set correctly so until 8:00 this morning. the off-ramp is blocked. it's hard to tell up to two lanes blocked by southbound 880 near the alvarado niles exit but check these backups. this is really putting a number there on the morning commute. it looks like it is jammed from at least washington avenue all the way to san leandro. so southbound 880 is backed up from san leandro all the way down straight through until you get to union city. and then past alvarado niles, we see speeds improve again but yeah some big backups. all that darn paving work didn't get set correctly and they are saying 8:00 when they hope to get lanes open. >> we have a little birthday. >> yes. happy birthday
