6:17 am
this accident blocking three lanes of traffic. it's a big one so expect delays getting through there. we are already seeing backups for the northbound direction of the nimitz. now, caltrain did tell us that even though bart service has been restored, they will continue their enhanced service and they will also pick up passengers at the millbrae bart station as they have been for the last few days. caltrain still offering that extra service. they are reporting no delays. no problems either reported for the altamont commuter express. the bay bridge drive is going to be a slow one. we have had two accidents both of them at the toll plaza and traffic is backed up beyond the 880 overcrossing approaching the pay gates. the golden gate commute southbound traffic on 101 that's going to be fine. highway 24, you can see right here our caltrans cameras picking up some slow traffic. there was an earlier accident in the westbound direction at telegraph. that's just been cleared from lanes. the san mateo bridge has been trouble-free this morning. very foggy though for the golden gate. that's a look at "kcbs traffic." now to lawrence. >> that thick fog also causing some delays at sfo of almost an
6:18 am
hour and a half on arriving flights. so a foggy start all around in many spots right now except in the far eastern interior valleys, we're seeing some clear starts for them. but looks like the clouds going to slowly break up throughout the morning hours and by about the middle of the morning and the afternoon should be very nice, sunshine for most, cool to mild outside, it will stay cool out toward the coastline, the fog likely to linger there a bit but still,er a' going to see some very chilly temperatures probably only 50s at the coast. minor changes for now but you can see this ridge of high pressure remaining in place but a couple of areas of low pressure undercutting that ridge eventually one moving through into southern california as we head in toward the latter part of the week likely to brings a few more clouds sand probably a cooler weekend. but right now, looks like plenty of fghts of almost an hour and a half. but by the afternoon we should clear things up. if you are traveling around the country, watch out for some showers into chicago. about 46 degrees. sunny in denver at 68. 75 degrees partly cloudy in houston. and 66 and partly cloudy in new york. i think around the bay today we'll see plenty of sunshine this afternoon.

away from the coast. 76 degrees in san jose. 80 in morgan hill. 75 in sunnyvale. and 71 degrees in san mateo. east bay temperatures up in the 70s and also the low 80s. inside the bay it will be staying cool plan on highs there in the 60s especially in san francisco. low 60s and breezy. next couple of days no major changes then as we look toward the weekend, we may see a few more clouds, temperatures cooling down slightly but no rain in sight at least for now, guys. >> all right, not bad, lawrence, thank you. >> thank you, lawrence. it is 6:19. thousands showed up for the nike women's marathon sunday but not everyone was happy about it. when disgruntled neighbors called to complain, what happened? they got an unwelcome surprise. the big phone number mix-up that had people calling the wrong kind of hotline. and i'm dennis o'donnell. you might want to marry a san jose shark the way they're rolling right now. could a stanley cup proposal be in the works? we'll tell you coming up. >> and what's cool about your school? email your nomination to us at we may come and feature your school right here on our show. ,,

coming up. >> and bart trains are rolling this morning, but they are experiencing up to 45-minute delays systemwide. i'll have another update on bart and a complete look at your drive into work in just a few minutes. good morning, everyone. it's tuesday, october 22. i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. time now is 6:30. we are following this breaking news this morning. trains are running after bart scrambled to get things going this morning but riders aren't gorping at the chance to get on -- aren't jumping at the chance to get on bart a pretty much empty san bruno bart station. here's cate caugiran live at the lake merritt station in oakland. bart might be back toby, but stations are looking like ghost towns right now. >> that's right. it appears the word is getting out slowly. we saw a big rush of commuters here at 4 a.m. when bart trains were originally supposed to roll out. so maybe some commuters have found alternate ways of getting to work this morning planning ahead.
6:31 am
we know there are about 45- minute delays on these bart trains. hopefully tomorrow will be business as usual because in fact the bart strike is over. now, bart and its two unions did come to a tentative agreement last night. it still has to be approved by bart's board of directors and the unions have to vote on it. neither the ounces nor bart manage -- neither the unions nor bart management gave us the details of the bargain. apparently lieutenant governor newsom who sat in on the discussions last night wasn't happy about how far the disagreements went. >> this is the last time this has to happen. everyone is fed up and no one wants to see this happen again. the people in the region don't deserve it and the folks behind me on both sides don't deserve this and if there are any lessons to be learned, that is we have to work together. >> reporter: bart is still running that charter bus service at nine different stations. those will go on until 8 a.m. but we're hearing that those
6:32 am
two are running on limited service. bart hopes to have full service restored in time for the evening commute. we know that the reason that these trains were setback a couple of hours is because the two sides didn't come to an agreement until 10:00 last night. so that really wasn't enough time to get these train operators notified. they are the ones who go to bed early because they come here early so they did make their best effort to get the word out but again, there are running bart on limited service this morning. cate caugiran, kpix 5. so it's a slow commute. here's liza with more on how things are going out there. take it away. >> it's been a busy commute for 880 rolling through oakland. we have had two major accidents both of them blocking multiple lanes. so this would be a good morning to take 580 instead of 880. again, an accident northbound 880 at 980 blocking two lanes and just beyond that at broadway, another accident blocking three lanes of the freeway. a combination of both of these things has traffic very slow heading through there. you can see some of the backups
6:33 am
towards the top half of your screen. northbound 880 right now backed up beyond fruitvale approaching the accident. if you plan to make the rest of the commute we have been talking about bart. yes, the strike is over. but we are looking at 45-minute systemwide delays and very limited service. they are only operating 25 trains at this hour versus the usual 45. that's a look at traffic. here's lawrence. >> a lot of fog outside now. we are looking at delays at sfo on arriving flights of almost an hour and a half. outside thick clouds especially in the north bay valleys. we have a dense fog advisory and patchy dense fog around the bay area even drizzle at the coastline. temperatures starting out chilly this morning in the 40s and a couple of 50s. by the afternoon, though, looks like some mild sunshine into the south bay 70s, as high as 80 degrees in morgan hill. 76 in san jose. east bay temperatures running up into the 70s and even a few 80s but as you approach the coastline, a little more of a sea breeze a cool 63 in san
6:34 am
francisco. 69 degrees in oakland. but only 50s and patchy fog toward the coast. that's the latest. back to you. thank you, lawrence. new this morning, the labor department says u.s. employers added 148,000 jobs in the month of september. that means the economy added an average of 143,000 jobs a month during the summer compared to 182,000 in the spring. in a separate survey the unemployment rate fell a tenth of a point in september to 7.2%. that is a five-year low. in other headlines around the bay, we could find out tomorrow if the governor will order a 60-day cooling-off period to delay an ac transit strike. union workers have rejected the last two contract offers over wage an benefit issues. they took their case to a state panel yesterday. the panel will report to the governor. a 3.8-mile natural gas pipeline in san carlos will soon re-open after reduced pressure. line 147 was shut down october 7 after internal pg&e emails
6:35 am

6:36 am
into birth certificates issued in the past six years. a san francisco supervisor is challenging the national park service plans to limit access for dogs at popular hangouts. scott weiner introduced a resolution opposing the plan by the golden gate national recreation area. dog owners claim the proposed limits at crissy field fort funston and ocean beach would lead to overcrowding at parks. >> the national park service is trying to treat an urban recreation area as some sort of pristine backwoods national park. and it is not. to try to treat this as if it were yosemite or the high sierras to me makes no sense. >> san francisco has a large dog population and in fact there are more dogs than children. going on right now in australia, firefighters are pouring in from across the country to relieve exhausted volunteers. hundreds are trying to protect
6:37 am
multiple communities in new south wales. the volunteers have been working 12-hour shifts with little sleep for more than 5 days. and a fire perimeter of nearly 1,000 miles is still burning. >> there's a hell of a lot of country currently on fire and there's a whole lot more that will be burnt out before we see a position where we can say we have these fires contained. >> making matters more difficult the forecast calls for hotter and drier conditions with wind gusts to more than 60 miles an hour. schools are being closed and residents are being warned to get out before it's too late. time now is 6:37. you may want to buy a lottery ticket. the changes to the mega millions to help you get lucky. i'm mark kelly live in san francisco. apple is set to unveil its new ipad later this morning. but a second tech giant isn't far behind. find out who next. >> and the market opened about 10 minutes ago. take a quick check of the early numbers on this tuesday.

6:42 am
details from kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks on this tuesday morning. >> reporter: good morning, frank. good morning, michelle. certainly nothing to get excited about now that we finally have the september jobs report. the labor department reporting a gain of only 148,000 jobs. that was well below expectations. they revised past couple of months got an extra 9,000 out of that. unemployment rate you see at 7.2%, that was actually down from august at 7.3% but more of a reflection of more people giving up looking for work this all happening before the government shutdown so october certainly is going to be impacted by that. there's been a lack of confidence in business owners because of all the uncertainty in washington. that could impact job growth for the rest of the year. certainly over the past few months job growth has been weakening compared to what we saw over the prior year. lots of earnings news coming in for wall street today including netflix which came down after the close yesterday. and netflix continues to be a big star easily topping expectations. its profit came in at $1.1

6:44 am
bridge commute. we have had a couple of accidents. traffic is backed up into the macarthur maze with the metering lights on. if you plan on making the 880 commute that's going to be a huge headache. we have had a couple of accidents. they are both still out there blocking multiple lanes. the accident northbound 880 at 980 still blocking three lanes of traffic. you can see traffic extremely slow for 880. take 580 instead and save yourself some time this morning. the golden gate commute is foggy out there but traffic is still moving south 101 looking good. no delays this morning for 580 heading across the richmond/san rafael bridge. so that would actually be a very good alternate to waiting in the backups over at the bay bridge toll plaza. san mateo bridge looking good. so far no accidents, no major delays at the pay gates. it is beginning to get sluggish now in that westbound direction across the bridge. that's a look at "kcbs traffic." here's lawrence. >> wow, that fog is thick in some parts of the bay area this morning. we have delays at sfo of almost an hour and a half on arriving flights so if you are heading

out the door be very careful. some of the visibilities less than a quarter mile. looks like fog lifts throughout the middle of the morning and into the afternoon should see sunshine for most. it will be cool out toward the coastline but mild inside the bay and warm sunshine in the valleys and just some minor changes over the next few days. high pressure remains in place. there are a couple of lows that continue to undercut the ridge and eventually toward the weekend i think they will start to weaken that ridge enough that we'll likely see a few clouds and maybe cooler temperatures. but for now a lot of sunshine and some comfortable weather in toward the afternoon away from the beaches. temperatures will be the 80s into the central valley as high as 69 and sunny in lake tahoe and partly cloudy into monterey bay at 66. around our bay today it will be cool right out toward the coastline. highs there only in the 50s with some patchy fog. you will see some 60s and sites inside the bay and 80s in the valleys. next couple of days, looks like just some minor changes in the weather pattern. maybe a few more clouds a little cooler heading into the weekend. right now no rain in sight.
6:46 am
all right. let's check out your schoolcast for today. this one for our lady star of the sea school in san francisco in the richmond district. morning bell is going to be cool and foggy to start about 48 degrees. 61 at lunch recess and staying cool in the afternoon, only about 62 degrees. if you would like us to do a forecast for your school, go to and nominate your school. all right. yeah, we are looking at some changes coming our way, guys, but just some minor fluctuations in the weather and looks like just some foggy conditions all around the bay area. how about that? >> that sounds good, lawrence. >> all right. [ laughter ] >> right? fog? i don't know. >> great stuff. >> we have no choice. >> yes. thank you. 6:46 now. happening today, here in san francisco apple is expected to unveil its new tablet later this morning and kpix 5 reporter mark kelly is in san francisco. mark, apple i guess the first to strike in the new tablet war. >> reporter: it absolutely is,
6:47 am
frank. and tomorrow microsoft is expected to unveil its tablet. let's see what we can expect. let's start with apple. there's talk of a faster chip with thinner design maybe even some rounded corners. and a fingerprint scanner called touch id. we have no idea what the cost of this new i pad could be. then with microsoft we have what's called the surface 2. we could be looking at a permanent stand for the tablet with an optional keyboard to attach as well as a usb 3.0 slot, mini hdmi and mini sd card slot all that for just $450. live in san francisco, mark kelly, kpix 5. >> thank you. so what's up apple's sleeve for today's big event? joins us with what we can expect. -- cnet editor-at-large brian cooley joins us with what we can expect. >> everybody is looking for something revolutionary and stunning. some things will be relatively revolutionary. so the new big ipad the full size ipad would become more
6:48 am
like the mini in terms of design. it would be thinner and have a different edge design. maybe it gets a fingerprint scanner like the iphone 5s did as it came out just, what, four weeks ago. so apple is coming on fast here with another announcement after they did the phones. so this is an expected reason to get better and faster, all er, type stuff, no big break. the ipad mini should be revised. it will get the retina display. it's apple's best display as good or better than your eyes can perceive. so that would be incremental. the apple logo you see it everywhere and sometimes even running windows on it. we'll look at incremental things here. what i want to see is something we didn't expect that's going to change the way we use these devices. not just the hardware devices.
6:49 am
that could be the wild card lingering here. the fingerprint scanner is cool but we haven't seen something break out that's used widely yet. it's still green and used basically by apple. the app developers who make all those apps we love are not allowed to access that fingerprint scanner yet so they haven't been able to really blow it up into new ways of living with our device. >> what about the watch? we heard all about the apple watch. >> i would love to say the watches are possible that television is a possible but so far the odds in the rumor mill is those are not coming today. apple has promised a flurry of announcements through early 2014. that's why these are coming fast now. but this one i have a feeling is going to be evolutionary in the tablet and laptop space. may not be a breakthrough day. >> is there a strategy to announce this before the holidays? >> of course! i wonder, huh? >> maybe a little. >> yeah. >> reporter: i noticed we have a lot of other announcements today. microsoft has their new generation 2 of their tablets and nokia announced something called the lumia 2520 a new competitor to the ipad running
6:50 am
windows instead of apple allies ios so there's still the battle here of which flavor am i going to run, android, apple or windows? windows is the dark horse. apple and android are in a tough battle depending how you measure it. >> kind of hohum this a little bit? >> a little bit. i want to be surprised. but the tech market is so even and good right now, it's getting much harder to do a breakthrough product. >> apple, listen, brian wants to be surprised. >> don' we all? >> find more of brian cooley's tech watch segments on thank you. and time now for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." and we do that with norah o'donnell. she joins us live in new york with the very latest. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning to you, frank and michelle. ahead, we are going to talk to republican senator marco rubio on his new plan to delay the signature piece of the president's healthcare law, the individual mandate. plus, we are going to talk it a scientist this morning who is behind a promising new hair growth study and ask if this is
